A Rib And A Prayer

Sonny's BBQ has all-u-can-eat ribs on Tuesday nights here in Plant City. My cousin, Holli, her husband, Marvin, their son Harrison, their daughter Heather and her three beautiful children joined us. I really meant to get pictures of everybody but as they always are, the kids were the center of attention. Heather's youngest is Javin. Is he not the most beautiful toddler you have ever seen? Those baby blues and that blond hair are just too much to resist. He also has such a passive, sweet personality. He came to me like he sees me everyday.

JerriLynn is Heather's oldest. She is four and, like her mother, doesn't have a shy bone in her body.

Then there is Joslyn. All the bones in her little body are shy. She had a birthday party this past Saturday to celebrate turning three.

I want to bite his face!

Nathan enjoyed trading Pokemons with Harris on their Nintendos. School was cancelled today because of Tropical Storm Fay. Uncle Howie took the boys to see Star Wars The Clone Wars. The boys liked it. Uncle Howie traded on Half.com on his new 3G iphone. So, he couldn't tell me if the movie was good or not.

And my favorite part of the evening... after we ordered our ribs, JerriLynn prayed over the food.

I had soooo much fun on Hurricane Fay day! Granted, the movie was boring to me, but Bubby and Harris liked it, and that's all that matters. It was great to get to hang out with Holli and Marvin and all the young'uns again. I'm glad they came back home. And then there is Javin (Javen?). That is one sweet boy. I've already decided that he's mine, too. I love my family!

I forgot to mention, Sister, that I love your title to this post. A great parody. And JerriLynn's prayer. Oh my, where's my hanky?

Ok, I have to agree with you. They are all so precious. I think Howie is right...I love my family too.
