Winter Jam 2010

Jon and I had never been to a Winter Jam concert, so we were super excited to go this year! Especially because Third Day was going to be there, they are our favorite!! Other groups that were there were Sidewalk Prophets, Fireflight, Revive, Newsong, Newsboys, and Tenth Avenue North. We had an awesome time! My mom came out here specifically to watch the kids so that Jon and I could go! Not only did she watch the kids for the concert, but she offered us an overnight date! Isn't that so sweet of her?!

There are a bunch of pictures here and I know that some of them are pretty crummy, but I thought I would share!

Winter Jam 2010 at the BOK Center!

It was a tad bit cold out...Actually, I forgot my coat so Jon let (made) me wear his. What a guy! :)

This is the Sidewalk Prophets slinging shirts into the crowd.

I caught a shirt! (Not from Sidewalk Prophets, but from a new Christian clothing/bookstore.) I never win anything!

I'm so glad we got there when we did! We arrived around 4:30p.m. and stood in "line" for an hour and a half! This is the line behind us! The concert was only $10 at the door! No tickets!

This is the "line", or should I say mob, in front of us! It was a bit insane! The only thing I could think to compare it to was going shopping the day after Thanksgiving times a hundred! Nuts! But I would do it all over again!

Waiting for the doors to open...

We finally made it inside and ended up with awesome seats!


Newsboys! They were great!! (Not with the originals, but the touring group. They were still good!)

Tenth Avenue North

Waiting for Third Day...

Apparently there were technical difficulties because we had to wait a loooong time! Finally, Mac Powell came out and did some acoustics! Loved it!

Finally! THIRD DAY!!!

Singing "Revelation" with the girl from Fireflight!

The concert was awesome! Jon and I had a great time! I couldn't, however, stop thinking how much Ben would have enjoyed it! I think I will have to give up some of my selfishness and take him to "The Rock & Worship Show" in April. (Mercy Me and The David Crowder Band, among others, will be there!.)

Grammy's Here!

Luke was SO excited for Grammy to come! He ran to her as soon as he saw her! (Thankfully the airport wasn't busy!)

And he hasn't left her side since she got here!

Happy Valentine's Day, Again!

More Valentine's goodies!
Due to the major snow storm in Indiana, Grammy's cards were a little late. The kids never noticed, nor did they care! It's always fun to get unexpected mail!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Yes, I know, this a bit overdue, but this is the first time I have time to sit down and do it. Valentine's Day seemed to be a whole weekend affair around here! It started out with Abby's class party at school on Friday.

Abby HATES it when I take pictures of here at school, hence, the expression on her face. I loved the idea of the thing she is holding! PTO put these together for those that ordered them and then they delivered them to the kids on the day of the Valentine's parties. Such a fun little surprise!

It's a can of Dr. Pepper with tons of candy attached to it.

The note attached says, "You're just what the doctor ordered." (Get it, Dr. Pepper, just what the doctor ordered...)

I thought this was a fun idea for the class party! They dipped their pretzel rods in melted white chocolate and then in sprinkles! I think I might have to steal that idea for a birthday party!!

Abby was ok with me taking pictures of her with a few friends. This is her and Kelsey.

Abby and Jackie!

Abby and Jenna!

Ben, Abby and Luke were so excited to receive Valentine cards with McDonald's Arch cards inside from their Grandma and Grandpa Grief!

On Saturday Ben and Abby got to use their Arch cards.

This is what Ben chose to use his Arch card on. I wouldn't normally let him get a Big Mac, but how could I refuse him when it was his gift?

Abby stayed in the normal range of food!
(Luke was napping at this time, so he hasn't been able to use his Arch card yet.)

Saturday night we watched our friends, Dan & Laurie's, girls so that they could go out on a date! We did "make your own pizzas" which my kids always enjoy! I think Annabelle and Josephine did too!

This is Josephine making her pizza.

Abby's turn.

Annabelle wanted a picture with Abby. Look at the smile on that girl! Maybe she can teach Abby to be a little bit more cheesy!

Annabelle's turn.

The finished products. So cute! Anna's pizza has a heart made out of pepperoni's and Abby's has an 'A' for Abby. Jo went simple with extra cheese! YUM!!

In return for watching Dan and Laurie's girls on Saturday night, Jon and I got to go out on Sunday for Valentine's Day. We don't often get the chance to do a whole lot without the kids, so we really enjoyed some to ourselves! We went to Owasso for dinner and a movie (Valentine's Day) as well as some kid free time at Target and Best Buy. So much easier and faster to go in and out of stores without three kids in tow! We had a really good time! THANK YOU, DAN & LAURIE!!!
