I think it's ok to mention this. It's only been in our (Beth and I) minds and hearts, but hasn't really been spoken or shared. I guess, two weeks ago, Beth and I were feeling this contagious excitement for what God is going to do through the Rock soon. Neither of us could explain it to you, it was just there! After we talked, it seemed that everybody around us (including us) has taken a beating over the head. Whether money, family, personal, you name it.. We were talking about what else we could do to lift up the leaders in our church, to keep people in the Rock from Satan, to pray for the needs of our good friends. What we decided is quite simple, but
ferocious at the same time. We will pray. Before church, 8:30 a.m. . Get some of our friends together and beg God to protect us, bring on more excitement, etc. I think this 30 days series is the perfect time to start. If you'd like to join Beth and I, just let us know. Here are some of the challenges that I will face in the month of November.
1. No sweets for a month. Including Thanksgiving Day. ;/
2. Exercise everyday. EVERYDAY.
3. No Burgers & Fries at all. No exception.
4. Spend Quality -Quiet- Alone Time with Kevin at least once a week. (With a baby and football, this is a lot, I promise.)
5. Spend an interrupted hour in prayer every week.
6. Spend a day each week with NO TV or computer.
These are all I have so far? What have you decided to do for 30 days? Do you know what 30 days is about? This is what the church website says about the series:
30Days. OK, 29 if you start on Sunday. OK, 28 if you skip Thanksgiving Day. But "30 Days" sounds much cooler. It can be "the month your life changed." How many of us need to be shoved out of our comfort zones? How many desperately need a spiritual kick in the pants to dislodge us from our medium-heat mediocrity? Get ready for 30 Days of SPIRITUAL I-DARE-YOU's that cover ever area in your life: your soul, your body, your mind, your stuff, your time, your relationships. If you are a spiritual coward or so set in your ways that you refuse every new challenge, well, go visit another church for the month of November. We're about to turn the heat WAY up @ The ROCK. You probably can't take it.

They have a lot of energy. JK..I asked them to do this.
Love this pic of every single person.
This is one of my faves. It's in black and white in the slideshow too. I'm not sure which one I like more.
Did you know I also do make-up? Check out this Rock commercial. Pay special attention to the last 10 seconds.

***Isn't Gray's dress beautiful? Megan & Matthew picked this up on their honeymoon to Mexico. She wore it one day is September, and I had to snap some pictures of her for them. I hope she made that seamstress and her Uncle Matthew & Aunt Megan proud!

***Don't forget to check out the Prosser slideshow and tell Stacey which pic is your fav.
Love the jump pictures, and the fountain....love it!!!
I really wanted to get the turquoise bar in the picture.
Strong, sensitive, full of life, spirit, and personality. Bri takes care of her other two siblings and keeps them in line. Ethan is a modest strong and seems to take care of his sisters without having to prove it. Haley is the baby and living in a world of her own, a world that makes you wish you were dwelling there. Yes, they're kids, but great ones! I had too much fun traipsing around Conway capturing these kids as are they in this moment in time. I'm in love with some of their pictures, and I hope they are too. Prosser family....Thank you! :) To see more of the Prosser kids, click the title to see a slide show.

I hunched over and stared out of the window, pondering all the things that I have coming up in life. Thoughts in my mind are like a carnival ride that goes round and round and round. Each thought and worry has its own seat. I get done thinking and stressing about it and then before you know it, here it comes again. I look over to my husband, who is looking quite content with life and start to express my worries and explain to him over and over how stressed I am up about everything coming up. His calm repsonse, "Baby, if there is anybody who can handle it all and do it well, it's you!" Nice statement, I know, but still....it didn't help. There's only one way to deal with these worries and stresses. Pray, Face them head on, and Take them out....one by one.
***Thanks to everyone who called, texted, and emailed about Evan, my favorite sister. She had her appendix taken out, rather quickly, and she is still in the hospital recovering. She's a toughie and I love her lots! :)
***Look for a lot of picture posts this week. I have the Prosser, Clary, Herman, and Middleton Families on the "editing burner". I'll write more about each family later.

Here is my claim to fame.
Some things you need to know:
1. Yes, this was performed during church. My church rocks. (rockc3.com)
2. Mygroup is ...I guess the modern approach to Sunday School, but we meet during the week at people's homes. I heart mygroup.
3. If I look fat, the camera adds 20 not 10 pounds, and I'm working on it. So hush! :O
4. If you think TJ does not have rhythm, you should have seen him when we started. (Sorry T!) I can honestly say that I laughed as hard as I have in years when we were practicing.
5. We made our own costumes, so don't hate.
6. There are a lot of inside jokes hidden inside the sketch. Jerimiah is semi-short (You're welcome for the semi-), and has a really cool I-phone.
That's about it. Hope you enjoyed. There are more videos on youtube. Type in rockc3 and up they will come.....
I told you I liked to have fun! ;)

Love It! Another of my fave's!
I am home on a Saturday because of the icky weather. I hate that I didn't get to do my shoots today, but it allowed for some work time since Daddy is home. I've been editing away and watching Texas vs. Oklahoma; Texas is about to win!!! Tonight we are off to play Pictionary, and I am stoked. I love games, but I am WAY too competitive. "She get her from her Daddy."
Here are the Partins' pictures from last weekend. Help Sherrie, the mom, out by leaving a comment declaring your love for your favorite photo! I'll post some of my mine, besides the one below that I heart! Cick on the title to see even more!
***Can you find me in one of the pictures??? If you can find me, Sherrie gets a free picture! :) Help her out!! This means you have to leave a COOOMMMEENNTT! Do it! For Sherrie! (Sherrie you cannot play...sorry :( !)
