What a lovely Sunday we had yesterday!
After the fellowship meal was over (and the dishes clean) we all realized that we had nothing to do. So guess what the boys decide on? Wrestling. Red light flashing brightly.
So the girls all took a seat to watch this dreadful thing. Now, it's fine with me if the boys want to fight for fun, but it is NOT alright with me when my little brother decides to join in.
To my absolute horror, one of the boys at church who is much bigger than my brother, offers to fight him. Caleb, of course, being the gentleman that he is, excepts. We watched in horrid facination. Finally, the match ended. Guess who won?

Nobody. It was tie.
And no one had to be rushed to the hospital.
Talk about relief.

We were also blessed with rain. What joy! What bliss! Ah, I love rain.

Danya

Jessica McDonald said...

"Boys will be boys"

Josh said...

Ha. You should see us boys when we use crochet mallets and plastic baseball bats.

Not that we do...

Daniel Blanchard said...

ouch...and were is the closest hospital?

Mallory said...

It rained here too delaying our building program. Our church is building a new sandctuary and they were supposed to be laying the foundation tomorrow but I don't think that is going to happen. I hate it when my brothers fight too. They've developed this new game on the trampoline where they run into each other. They always come complaining on how they hurt so much, yet on the next day, they're at it again. Boys. I would love to meet up with you guys in Nashville. Just tell me the dates. I don't think Danya and I are going to anymore conferences together *tear* at least not right now.

WHAT!? you don't have pictures of us? How could you have missed such a photo op? You know, a few photos of hot sweaty guys would have added a lot of "personality" to this blog! (sarcasm) ;-)

Jessica McDonald said...

daniel- you got that right.

josh- ouch!!! :)

mallory- that's too bad. :(

david- lol. I know. I was pretty upset when I realized that as well. Pictures would have been so funny! LOL.

Danya said...

ahem...to comment on what Mallory said, neither of us actually know if we will do any more conferences together or not. It could be possible for next year. now, whenever the heck you're coming down, you really need to like let me know. Preferably on my blog, cause I don't check yours as often as my own. (I'm ashamed, yes.) And we so need to get together. Oh, by the way, you have a long lost cousin named Lady Jayme. She's really our (mal's and my) cousin. Hey, maybe that means we're all really related!

To take the opposite view point.. I actually enjoy it when my three brothers (and even my dad) wrestle. I'll even join them at times.. although, I don't REALLY wrestle.. I just take up space and deliver a incredibly aimed blow (with a pillow of course) every once in a while :) I can do this see, because John wouldn't dare strike me (*grin*), and I can handle the younger too.. (I love being the older sister.... he he hoho *wicked grin*)

It's starting to cool off down here in Humid Houston!!! YAHOO!! We hit 60 degrees last night!

Jessica McDonald said...

Danya, I'll tell you the date when I find out. Promise!

Brooke- Really? lol. You're brave...:)
60 degrees?! Wow! Congrats! lol. I'm glad that you finally get to cool off! :D
It was in the 50's here yesterday. It's slightly warmer today...but lovely!

Danya said...

Wow. In Tennessee?! :D

Mallory said...

Ahem...to comment on what Danya said,it was actually 43 degrees. If my fair cousin had checked the WEATHER CHANNEL website she would have known this.

Danya said...

I did check the weather channel website, genius! I said 40's, not 40. It was a general statement. (ps, me and mallory do this all the time. we're not having a fight over the internet.) lol. yeah, i know, it was pretty awesome for it to be cool, jess. it'll be cool when you guys come down. which should be soon.

Danya

Mallory said...

Well exuse me....I'm afraid everyone on Jess's blog believes us to be very quarrelesome. We must set them to right. I'm sorry that I made the tiny mistake of being sure that you had said 40 degrees. Please accept my apologies. Jess... I still need dates to that conference. Do you at least know in what month it is?

Jessica McDonald said...

LOL. Y'all are so funny...:D

Yes, it's this month. Maybe next week?

jess

Mallory said...

Next Week? Even better...I think. I don't think we have anything. Just tell me as soon as you know. I'll try to keep next week open.

Danya said...

How's this for not quarrelsome? I love you mal! and I love you too Jess! ok, next week is good for me too!

Danya

Ashton said...

Lol! Quite the conversations on here, Jessica... ;-)

Did y'all get any tornadoes or severe thunderstorms yesterday?

Danya said...

Danya

Jessica McDonald said...

Ashton, yeah. lol. :D

No, we didn't. But we heard about the warning...it didn't even rain. go figure. How about y'all?

Mallory said...

Hey, Jessica..One little question. I was on the Books on the Path website hoping to find a schedule ( since you won't tell me when it is. Just Kidding) and I saw that you are selling it! Is it true? Anyway...just wanted to make sure I wasn't hallucinating

Danya said...

I just wanted to say hi. I'm bored. How was your church today? Any more excitment?

Danya

ps. isn't Mallory just so impatient? ;)
luv ya!

mallory said...

I know I'm impatient. I admit it. I fall so short so often. (sigh) But my dad was trying to plan a weekend at my grandparents yesterday, and I was just starting to get worried that we would plan something before you could tell me. Anyway.....well.....I...dont'..know...of...anything....else...to...say.so....I...guess...I'll....say......this...Pip...Pip...Cheerio.

Daniel Blanchard said...

Talya said...

Ashton said...

In fact, the place where Grace went over the weekend (somewhere down south) got 5 inches...

Jessica McDonald said...

Danya and Mallory: I am very very greived to say that we are unable to get together with y'all. I'm so sorry. :( We actually just got back from the conference. We were only there for three days and the whole time we were in speaker's sessions ect. I pray that we can see one another next time. But we just couldn't make it happen this time. :(

Talya: Don't worry. I'll try when I get a chance.

Daniel: lol. :D

Ashton: Wow...

I was afraid you were going to say that.

Danya

Ashton said...

alsosamallory said...

I started to guess that you were already there. Tear,tear,Whaaaaaah. OH well. I guess we'll see each other some day. If not here, at least in Heaven which will be like agazillion times better anyway.

Danya said...

what, are you saying we're all going to die, Mal?

Danya

mallory said...

No!!!!!! I was merely stating facts. I was trying to be as calm and solemn after my little temper tantrum and that was all I could think of to say. Oh, just forget that I even mentioned it.

Suzanne said...

Nice blog! Hope to see ou soon and maybe we can dance.

Danya said...

So, yeah, you're not blogging. what's up?

Danya
