Conversation At Dinner Tonight.

David is thinking that he may want to buy a wedding ring (when the time is right, of course) from Wal-Mart so he is able to tell if his lady really loves him. We discuss this for a moment and here comes the funny:

Andrew: "Hey your wedding I can be the ring burier!"

We all had a great laugh, including Andrew!

Que Sera Sera.

I went to our local KFC/Taco Bell the other night to buy some tacos for the kiddos. I placed my order and then the drive-thru operator told me that they were no longer a Taco Bell, just a KFC! WHAT?? There are not that many dining options in this little town and now they are downsizing?? That makes perfect sense to me. They discontinued serving last week and they had taken the sign down that day.

I heard that Taco Bell had requested the owner of that franchise to broaden the Taco Bell menu and he/she declined, so they lost the contract! Way to go, owner! I don't even know if anybody even goes to's so gross! I guess we will see if it stays open or not??

Goodbye, my weight watching bean will be missed.

I said thank you, rolled up my window, and drove away bamboozled.....

The Next Day...Or Three!

Okay, David, I know that I said I was going to continue your birthday wishes the next day, but ol' Mom just became a little too occupied with other you! Haha...j/k.

Just wanted to say that you are a great kid and I love you very much. You are the eldest of the Smith clan so with that comes some ups and downs as I am sure you have discovered! Hopefully, the good outweigh the bad!

You will be the first to drive, but probably will have the most rigid curfew, I don't know! They say parents become more flexible after each kid....I suppose we will see. You don't have to wear any hand-me-downs from your little brothers, you leave for college first, and you get to stay up the latest! You will; however, lose your bedroom at the house first (haha, I mean, Mom's scrapbooking/sewing room), be used as a free babysitter at some points, have had all the newly learned parenting techniques (some good, some not so good) experiemented on you, and be held at different/higher standards than the younger kids. With all this said, I still think you like your ranking status!

I treasure all my years with you and look forward to what God has in store for us in the future! Thank you for being the loving, sensitive, sweet boy (I mean young man) that you are and never lose sight of the big picture. I know you have to deal with a lot of things that a lot of people do not, but there are also a lot of things that you DON'T have to deal with that a lot of people do! I know that it is hard to remember that some times, but I have NO doubt that you are going to do amazing things because God made you exactly the way He wanted you to be. With that said, I wouldn't want you to be ANY different than you are!

I love you,
