I went for a walk around Vanderbilt the other day during lunch. I decided to call my sister to see how they were doing...MP got on the phone. This was our conversation:
Me: hey MPers what are you doing?
MP: making a Food Network challenge cake...
Me: oh wow! what does it look like?
MP: it is big, but I still have to do the green and pink layers.
Me: what else do you have to do?
MP: I still need to make my sugar showpiece for on top...
Me: wow, a sugar showpiece...what will it be
MP: a star...a beautiful star...a beautiful pink star with twirlies...
Me: what flavor is the cake?
MP: chocolate and vanilla
Me: oh wow...will you mail me a piece?
MP: no, Wawa, it's just pretend...(my sister told me they were making it out of Styrofoam(sp?) and decorating it with construction paper and stickers.
this will be MP in a few years...
this kid cracks me up! Then she asked me why the valentine window stickers I sent her stink....
Me: I don't know, I didn't make them.
MP: they smell like dead flies!

Just hanging with my sis...
Mom, this is getting old...
I can't handle this....where is my bottle?!
really can it get any more precious!? I'm terrified that our children will not be this cute...I talked to MP this morning. Uncle Webby is there, so she is in heaven! She needed to give me a recipe. That's her thing, when you call she gets on the phone to give you a recipe. This one was actually edible. Salad: lettuce, bacon and Italian dressing, but she reminded me not to put carrots in Dadu's because he doesn't like carrots. I wanted to say that carrots were not in the recipe, but I thought I would cut her some slack. She is 4. She is really funny when she gives you directions!
Life is moving right along. We had a great weekend last weekend visiting Hunter, Emily and sweet baby William. He is just the sweetest thing. Such good manners and so well behaved! :) Josh and Emily Blades joined us and we had fun with them as always! I was just thinking in church last Sunday how blessed we are to have such wonderful friends! Josh and Emily stayed at Mom and Dad's with us and were not too disturbed by Woody's constant vomiting! That's right, my hairy little brother was under the weather...and more so than we could have imagined! We found out Monday after his emergency surgery that he had managed to get his paws on a corn cob which he proceeded to swallow blocking his intestines! Sounds pleasant! He is now back at home after terrorizing the doctor and nurses at the vet. He was not a good patient. He is sporting a cone around his neck, but other than that is on the mend. He gave us quite the scare! That's pretty much all for us. I hope you all have a wonderful Valentines...I plan to enjoy a meal with my sweet husband. I leave you with these verses that my youth kids read on Wednesday night:
"If I speak in the tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast,* but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant 5or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; 6it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. 7It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never ends. But as for prophecies, they will come to an end; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will come to an end. 9For we know only in part, and we prophesy only in part; 10but when the complete comes, the partial will come to an end. 11When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became an adult, I put an end to childish ways. 12For now we see in a mirror, dimly,* but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known. 13And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love."
1 Corinthians 13

Well, all is well in the Wolfe house. Travis and I spent this past weekend with our youth group at Warmth in Winter. A good time was had by all, but it is painfully clear that we are getting old. This precious freshman girl had on a t-shirt that said, "Wiggity, Wiggity, Wack!" We asked her if she knew what it meant, no was the answer we received, so we proceeded to educate her on the musical stylings of Kris Kross. Another girl said, "Oh, I know who they are. I saw them on VH1 'I love the 90s'"....ugg, we are old. Here are some new pictures of our nephew, Wade. I can't get over the red hair! Never would have dreamed he would be red headed! And his zealous appetite seems to be catching up with him. He looks good with 2 chins, don't you think?
