Urbanski family reunion

This past weekend the 2009 Urbanski Family Reunion was held.  This happens once every two years.  And my mother and the rest of the family all get together for food and fun.  It's always nice to go home to Texas for the event. 
Just thought I'd share a few pics with you.

the buzzard, bat and bumblebee

 If you put a buzzard in a pen that is 6 feet by 8 feet and is entirely
open at the top, the bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will be an absolute prisoner. The reason is that a
buzzard always begins a flight from the ground with a run of 10 to 12
 feet. Without space to run, as is its habit, it will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top.
The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkable nimble
creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place.  If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle about
 helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight
elevation from which it can throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash.
A bumblebee, if dropped into an open tumbler, will be there until it
dies, unless it is taken out.  It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near
 the bottom.  It will seek a way where none exists, until it completely destroys itself.
In many ways, we are like the buzzard, the bat, and the bumblebee

We struggle about with all our problems and frustrations, never realizing that all we have to do is look up! 

That's the answer, the escape route and the solution to any problem! 

Just look up. Sorrow looks back, Worry looks around, But faith looks up!

Live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly and trust in our Creator who loves us

Addy's bag

My dear friend, Dinnetta, made this awesome bag for Addison.  We are going out of town this weekend and she needed something sassy!
You rock Dinnetta!


Hotmail® has ever-growing storage! Don't worry about storage limits. Check it out.

She's growing up way too fast!

The adoption is taking forever!  I'll be glad when it's over.
Life has been hectic.  Hopefully things will go back to normal soon!
I'd be ever so thankful!

                                Armadillos sleep in the middle of the road, with their feet in the air.

                                There are 5,000 types of snakes on earth, and 4,998 live in Texas.

                                There are 10,000 types of spiders.  All 10,000 live in Texas , plus a couple no one's seen before.

                                If it grows, it sticks..  If it crawls, it bites.

                                'Twiced' is a word.

                                People actually grow and eat okra.

                                'Fixinto' is one word.

                                There is no such thing as 'lunch.'  There is only dinner and then supper.

                                Iced tea is appropriate for all meals and you start drinking it when you're two.  We do like a little tea with our sugar!

                                'Backwards and forwards' means I know everything about you!

                                Djeet is actually a phrase meaning 'Did you eat?'

                                You don't have to wear a watch because it doesn't matter what time it is.  You work until you're done or it's too dark to see.

                                You don't PUSH buttons, you MASH them.

                                You measure distance in hours.  Like it's 6 hours from Houston to Dallas.

                                You'll probably have to switch from 'heat' to 'A/C' in the same day.

                                'Fix' is a verb.  Example:  'I'm fixing to go to the store.'

                                You install security lights on your house and garage and leave both unlocked.

                                Yes, Friday night high school football games is serious football!

                                You carry jumper cables in your car...  For your OWN car.

                                There are only four spices:  salt, pepper, Tabasco and ketchup.

                                The local papers cover national and international news on one page, but require 6 pages for local gossip and sports.

                                100 degrees Fahrenheit is 'a little warm.'

                                We have four seasons:  Almost Summer, Summer, still Summer and Christmas.

                                Going to Wal-mart is a favorite past time known as 'goin' to Wally-World.'

                                A cool snap (below 70 degrees) is good pinto-bean weather.

                                A carbonated soft drink isn't a soda, cola or pop... it's a Coke, regardless of brand or flavor.  Example:  'What kind a coke you want?'

                                Fried catfish is the other white meat.

                                We don't need no stinking driver's ed... If our mama says we can drive, we can drive.

                                If you understand these jokes, please forward them to your friends from Texas (and those who just wish they were).

                                EVERYONE can't be from Texas.  You might say it's a gift from God!

                                And the most important thing we learn growing up in TEXAS is... IN GOD WE TRUST.
