Now...it is time to start on this mountain of disgusting laundry and throw some puney kids into the tub!
Hoping and praying that Peyton and I don't get it tonight!

He said, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy "moly" Ghost!" I am not kidding! I have no idea where he got that, I didn't even have him learn that part. Guess he just heard the other kids saying the whole thing and thought he might as well try! We had to tell him that wasn't nice and to not keep saying it that way!

Discussing the Patriotic Service...
Convention Quartet...(Excuse the blurrieness, my hands were shaky from falling!)
The best moments of the convention...
Letting off energy between services...
Chuck & Mary McGuire (See the Davis stoller on the right end of this picture!?)
Paige's favorite face to make...
So embarrassed that her son stunk up the entire arena...
There were really listening to the service weren't they???
"Is church almost over, Mom?"
(This is about the time that all the "sniffing" was taking place!)
"Who gets to change him?"
Todd Myers and family honking their horn along with 3,000 other people...Homeward bound...
Goodbye IHC 2008, see you next year!
After the afternoon service was over, we went to check in at the Crowne Plaza! We had booked our room last June and had already paid for one night as a deposit! Jonathan goes up to the desk and the clerk proceeds to tell him that he did not have any non-smoking double queen rooms left!!!! We had the papers stating we were "guaranteed" this room! (The clerk said that people actually check in on Tuesday and refuse to leave on Wednesday... (This better not be the IHC crowd!) Therefore, they were "over booked!" They had a smoking room with two beds and a non-smoking King only! We opted for the non-smoking King and felt right at home with all of us in one bed! (One big happy family!) They did give us a 20% discount for the inconvenience...
We quickly freshened up for the 6:00pm Wednesday evening service and headed for the elevators at 5:45pm! Those elevators are a joke... We waited for 15 minutes and every elevator was completely jam packed with people and Jonathan was to be on stage to sing in the 6pm service! He was beginning to sweat a little and decided his only option was to take the stairs...all 154 of them! (We were on the 11th floor!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Jonathan left me there waiting on an elevator with 3 kids, a stroller and the world's heaviest diaper bag! I finally got into the evening service 5 minutes late, parked my stroller, found my in-laws, and started the long climb up the bleachers with my diaper bag over my shoulder and a kid on each hand. I got 3/4 of the way to the top and went to climb over this couple when the lady looked at me and said, "Ma'am, these seats are saved!!!!!!!" (There were close to 10 empty seats there too!) I turned to go back down and realized that I had caused quite a traffic jam! There were tons of people behind me waiting to get a seat as well! I bent down and grabbed a kid under each arm, still had my diaper bag on my shoulder and down I went! (I was carrying about 80 pounds here and I think steam was rolling from my ears too! :) I got to the bottom of the steps...or so I thought, and turned to step off the side...WHOA!!!!!!!!! Down I went, kids in my arms, diaper bag and all! I practically knocked Brother McCrary down and completely "fell into" his conversation he was having with another gentleman! I thought I was going to die right then and there! He grabbed my arm and I was able to get back on my feet, kids still under each arm and diaper bag still in place! The twins were hollering and I darted into the exhibit area and burst into tears! I was shaking so bad and just needed Jonathan to help me! My wonderful sister-in-law, LuRhe appeared along with Mary Jane McGuire to help me! I asked "Where is Jonathan???" When they said, "On the platform" tears rolled even more! All I wanted right then was to go back home to Indiana!!!!!!!!!!!!! LuRhe and Mary took the kids from me and I tried to calm down! I stayed hid in the exhibit area the rest of the service! Jonathan was on the platform, scanning the crowd looking for me and had no idea his graceful wife had been putting on such a performance, trying to "steal the show!" The kids were complete snakes and we didn't even get to sit in on any of the main service that evening! I wasn't about to go hauling myself up to the top of the bleachers only to find out those seats were saved too!!!
We decided there was no need to just walk around talking to each other so shortly before 9pm, off we went to get something to eat! We picked O'Charley's for a change and were hungry and exhausted! We waited over 45 minutes for our food and didn't even complain! (Jonathan told the waitress that he thought they were just going to bring us breakfast! She laughed...) They ended up giving us our meal for free! (Finally, something good out of a completely bad day!)
Later, I told Anthony Webb that I would be on any committee, clean bathrooms, whatever it would take to get myself a reserved seat at IHC!!! I don't think he will ever let me live down my gracelessness at IHC!
I have many other stories of IHC to tell but that is the one that everyone has been talking about! I'll post more later about who all we saw and chatted with, along with a few pictures! (I'll have to post some of the Davis clan and talk about our time with them!)
Now I am off to find some Advil for some achy bones and hurt pride!!!
Stay tuned for my IHC novel...

He had practice again tonight for 1 1/2 hours and I ended up taking the twins to the truck and turning them on a DVD! It was not fun chasing two rugrats around the ball diamonds and I couldn't believe how filthy they got in such a short amount of time!
Here are a few pictures of Parker tonight at his practice. Most of you could care less, so these are mainly for my family!
Jonathan's games begin next Monday at 9pm! Oh joy...
