The biggest update I have is that Michael has been given a job on first shift. Praise the Lord. Literally, I have been praying that God work this out for him and this is our answered prayer. Second shift seems to just take away all of his energy! Thank you Lord for answered prayers.
As for the boys, they are great! We are busy this week with revival. We have to play outside, get baths and eat dinner all before church. After church we come in and read then go straight to bed.
We went to see Monsters v. Aliens on Saturday night. It was fun...the best part was seeing the boys in the 3D glasses. They are too cute. I'll have to get a photo and post it.
There are always a million funny things they do in a day they are such fun kids. I'm so thankful that God has allowed me to be their mom. I hope they end up being thankful for such a mean mom as I. Y'all have a great day!

After I got done with tee ball yesterday, I went to the board meeting with Dylan. I left Dalton at the game with Nana and PaPaw, they offered to keep him with them while Gabe and Hayden played ball. The board meeting was over when I got there at 6:20. It started at 6 and ended about 6:10. Pretty uneventful, but I did get to see our superintendent and principal, assistant principal and board members. Meeting and talking is the most important part anyway.
I'm tired today and feeling a little under the weather. I feel like I stay tired. I would love a day to just rest. Summer's coming, maybe I can get one then.

Dalton was trying to teach Dylan to wink. I wish I had my camera with me, because that would have been the pic to take. Dalt was holding one of Dyl's eyes open then said okay close the other eye. It was too funny.
I talked to both sisters, cousin Christy, and cousin in law Jennifer last night. They were all quick conversations but it was nice to touch base. I need to call and check on my cousin Nick. He just had rotator cuff surgery. I hope the recovery is going good for him. Y'all say an extra prayer for him tonight.
We have a faculty meeting after school today then tonight is tee ball and a board meeting at 6. Busy afternoon! This morning the boys had pictures at school and Dalt will have graduation pics soon and graduation on May 8th. Wow! I can't believe he will be here with me next year in big school. How exciting!
Don't let the Easter season die...Our Lord is still alive and on His throne. How exciting. I'm so ready to see His face!

Cuties. He was singing I think....or maybe yawning.
The Bryant Fam.
Saturday began at 8am with an Easter Egg Hunt at the church. Lots of kids and lots of eggs! It was fun. I hope they understand the true meaning of Easter, it was shared a lot! Saturday afternoon was Jill's party in B'ham. It was from 4-6. We had tons of fun playing with all the kids and seeing all the family. Leigh Ann throws a great party. We didn't get home til 9 and we left at 6:30....we had to stop at 2 wal marts looking for mac and cheese. One was sold out. I guess that was everyone's idea for Easter lunch.
Sunday morning we had a sunrise service at 6:30. The boys went with me after we had the Easter Bunny at the house. We hunted eggs at our house after the sunrise service. Then we had our church cantata. It went great. Afterwards we went to Mamas and had lunch and hunted eggs and played outside until about 4:30 at which point my children asked to go home. That never happens! They were so pooped. LONG and BUSY weekend, but great!
Thank you Jesus for choosing to die for me. I don't know why you love me so much but I'm eternally grateful and can't wait to see you face to face to tell you so!
Oh our washing machine motor burned up. Michael is supposed to order another one today. Thanks Mama and Daddy for letting me do laundry at your house. She thought she was going to wash, dry and fold all of them...but I caught her folding the first load and took the rest home wet. My dryer does still work. I'll upload some pics later.

Thanks Denise for this video!!! It's hilarious!
Yesterday we went to Target to get an animal for the boys being good in church and Dyl not having any accidents. While we were looking at the animals for not having accidents, he had an accident! I kept asking if he needed to potty and he said no ma'am. He was dancing about vigorously, then all of a sudden he was still! He just looked down and yep, his pants were wet. I had to go buy a pair of 4 dollar shorts because I had new undies, but no pants! I bought 24 month shorts and they are too big in the waist, especially with no undies under them. (they were in the car) After we finished eating dinner (Pizza Hut in Target) we walked out to the car in the freezing cold wind. I was walking rather fast and holding Dyl's hand he kept saying something and then when I finally heard him he was yelling "mine pants is falling"....he had on no undies and the lady behind us was just rolling laughing! All of us were laughing uncontrollably by the time we got to the car. After a whirlwind hectic trip in Target, we needed that laughter! I love my sweet sweet boys. There is never a dull moment!
Dalton has truly become his brothers keeper. In the buggy yesterday he said "Dylan you need to sit on your bottom like Mama said, you really need to obey her" Then this morning he told me that Dyl had to go potty, I called Dylan to the bathroom and he didn't come. I heard Dalton say "Dylan she ain't coming to get you, you better go to her". Last night he kept telling Dylan to lay down and go to sleep then he popped Dylan on the hand because Dyl was keeping him awake. Dylan got tired of his bossiness I guess because he bit Dalton on the back of the neck. Dalt is my big helper though he really has grown up way too fast!
My friend Jennifer has an awesome camera, it takes rapid shots!! She took some pics of Dalt at the game on Saturday so I thought I'd post a few of them.
Playing in the dirt!
Holding Daddy's hand!
Those red hands! He really loved that dirt! Thank you Jennifer!

Dylan relaxing with Nana after the game.
Dylan yelling for Michael to "come sit nown" Michael was helping coach 3rd and Dylan wanted him to sit down.
My beautiful Mom. She used to be Nanee, then mamee, now it's damee. Dylan is trying hard to say Grammy, he'll get it one day. Dalton finally did!
Dylan at the end of a long day. See his rosy red cheeks. He was pooped!
