     Well, we have had quite the winter here in KC. It snowed a ton in March and we even had a snow in April. I have been stuffing in school the last couple of months in my attempt to graduate this year (which looks like it will happen:-).

     Ally got the new Disney movie Tangled, and it was the first Disney movie in a while that was very entertaining and had some really funny stuff in it (it wasn't corny for once:-). I also was acquainted with Flynn Rider (AKA Eugene Fitzherbert) while watching Tangled and it was nice to meet someone who also believed in having self acceptance...just kidding. :-). I loved the line "I always had super human looks":-)

     I highly enjoyed watching the Kansas Jayhawks (who were a top seated team in the NCAA tournament) lose early:-) Although my Missouri Tigers didn't do much better:-( Still, it was fun watching Kansas lose. I also predicted Kentucky to beat Ohio State in the tournament so that is two years straight I have predicted Ohio State to lose early and they did. :-)

      I got to see Toy Story 3 this month, and Pixar didn't disappoint (they never have:-). It is amazing that they have gotten their animation so good that it always feels like it is actually real people. I also enjoyed watching a lot of the Pixar films recently, because when you are little you don't get a lot of the jokes. I was very surprised how much Toy Story 3 felt like a live motion picture instead of an animated film. I also finally got to see many of the other Pixars that I hadn't seen yet over the last few months (Ratatouille, Finding Nemo and Toy Story 2). So I've practically seen all of them.

     The NFL draft is also coming up next week, so I am counting down the days till our draft party. We boys go every year to our grandma's and watch the draft and then spend the night. Missouri has 2 players that could go quite high in the draft so I'm excited!

     Hope everyone has a good day. Back to School:-)

Please be in Prayer for...

Please be in prayer for my Aunt who started her chemotherapy this week. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of 2006 and was in remission last year, but the cancer has returned and is now in her brain as well as her lungs. The Chemo is helping so far so please be in prayer that it will continue to heal her.

Please also be in prayer for a family friend Jared Boyd. He was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, which is a rare type of cancer. He is going in today to have a tumor removed in his back, so please be in prayer for him. Here is his site if you would like to visit and leave a note of encouragement
