Oh "Say", Can you see?

Obviously I haven't posted in awhile and when I realized that my Memorial Day fit the post for July 4th I just left it, pretty sad, huh?
I have been frantically busy making up "goodies" to sell at Silver Bella and Mistletoe Market in Nov. Christmas is always on my mind so it has been hard to switch gears and be a good blogger.
I do want to share a funny story with you guys, or at least it was funny to us and maybe those of you with kids will see the humor as well.

Back in Nov. 2005 my mom passed away, it was the worst time of my life, no joy and with Christmas approaching it was horrible. My mother in law offered to keep the boys so that Billy and I could do our Christmas shopping so off we go to Granma's house, the boys excited that Christmas was near and me? just depressed. As we were riding along, my then 6 yr. old Griffin, says "Momma, I just thought of something (which usually meant something crazy was abt. to come from his mouth)" I said, "oh yeah, what was it", he replies "well I got a question for you....who is say?" My husband and I just look at each other like the child had finally gone crazy. We both said, "what?", he says again, "who is say?...you know oh say, can you see?"
Well you can imagine how hard we laughed and I think God sent that crazy thought thru Griffin's head just for me! As we celebrated the Independence of our country and my dad's birthday on Sat. I thought of that time and that crazy question that came from my son, it brought joy to my life and I hope all of you are filled not just with happiness but the joy that can only come from God!!

I'll be back soon with pics of all of our craziness over the past month!

You always know something funny is going to come out of their mouths when they "just think of something"
