Happy Birthday Grandpa

Tim Lemons —  November 19, 2008 — Leave a comment

Today is my Grandpa’s birthday.  Thought I would post a happy birthday wish to you since you are my most faithful blog reader!

Wish I wasn’t a thousand miles away so I could be there to celebrate with you!  Hope to call you sometime today but pretty busy with the integrity conference going on here.

Don’t know if I’ve told you enough but I love you and am so thankful for you being in my life and all you have done for me and my family!

Fantasy Football Fail

Don’t ya just hate it when you make stupid mistakes.  I tried to put Matt Cassel in because he had a higher estimated points than Trent Edwards but I forgot he was playing on Thursday night and didn’t try to get him in the game until it had already started.  Oh well!  Notice my bench has more points than my active players.  FAIL

No More High Chairs

I’m proud to announce that the Lemons family is finally done with high chairs!  WHOO HOOO!  ok, maybe more like whoo hooo.  Because it’s not as exciting as the day will be when we announce we are done with diapers.  We have lived with diapers being a daily part of our lives now for almost 8 years. That will be an exciting day.  Until that day comes enjoy some pics of my kids in high chairs.  Mia’s pics are somewhere else. Maybe I will find a couple of them.

Found this article on Twitter etiquette and thought I would share it.  Some of my favorite quotes:

10. Try to keep within the character limit.

13. Plug moderately.

Now, you already have a phone, an email account, a blog—but what about the moments too small to blog? (Snacking on pretzels.) Too insignificant to email? (The twisty kind of pretzels.) They’re happening every second! How can you share the moments between the moments worthy of note? Enter Twitter.

Sharing Life Together

So tonight was crazy @ our house.  I had myself convinced my wife and daughter were dead/kidnapped/broken down who knows what.  The video below pretty much tells the story.  I would just like to add that it’s crazy how when you love somebody so much and how much you can worry about them.  I kept praying God I know your in control and I trust you, but please just give me something, I can’t stand not knowing.

Anyways. Enjoy the video. Remember this was shot @ 12:00 am and we just had a really long week and weekend are totally exhausted.  So while right now I am thinking it is hilarious. Tomorrow I may not find it so hilarious!

My Awesome weekend

Tim Lemons —  August 18, 2008 — Leave a comment
  • Dave Matthews concert @ the woodlands Friday night with my lovely wife!  Blogged here about it.
  • Saturday left Houston @ 11:45 am drove to Dallas to meet Matt. He gave me a tour of Watermark. Awesome building and sounds like an amazing church. I’ll post pics soon.
  • Went to Dave Matthews concert @ 7ish. It was an amazing show.
  • Left Dallas around 2 am – got to Houston @ 6 am
  • Went to church @ 7 am – Truth band was playing in Route 56
  • After church had King of the Beach draft
  • Then rehearsal
  • Then King of the Beach

So I was up for 37 hours straight. Been a long time since I’ve done that.  It was totally worth it! Two nights of back to back Dave shows.

So my class reunion is coming up soon.  It is awesome that that it is the weekend before a wedding in Virginia I am going to so I will be in town.  Couple of my closest friends are getting married September 20th.  The reunion is the weekend before.  When I got the invite there was a site we could go to and it had some pictures. Thought I would share one of me, as well as one I carry with me to show people for shock factor.  So enjoy a laugh at my expense.

**UPDATE**  Here is another example of Twitters Awesomeness!

I twitter. I love it. You would love it. Follow me on twitter here.

I get asked all the time, “What’s the point of twitter?”  Here we go. 4 reasons

  1.  Friends/Family – Since I have recently moved across the country twitter is a great way for me to stay in touch with my friends and family from Virginia and my new friends here in Texas.  Also every day twitter sends all my “twit’s” for the day to my blog.  My family and friends can see what I have been up to.
  2. Archiving my life – I have 3 kids.  I wish I had twitter when my first 2 were younger.  I can twitter things my kids do and will be able to back and search to see what day they started walking, first time they flew, etc.  Any milestones in their lives.  Also I can know what day I went to that conference, special event, etc.
  3. Ministry Resource – I follow a lot of people on twitter.  They each have different jobs but they give me ideas that I can use in ministry.  See list below to start following some of my followers.
  4. Ministry Tool – A lot of people in my ministry use twitter. It’s just another way to connect to people if I can’t get a hold of them.

  • Survived our first Hurricane experience today. No biggie just lots of rain.
  • Chic-Fil-A kids night is amazing.
    • Free Ice Cream, facepainting and balloons -(pics of facepainting to come as soon as I figure out how to get them off Alisha’s blackberry w/o internet connection)
    • Tyra freaked out over the walking cows – screamed @ top of lungs
    • Tyra is just like her daddy and uses her big eyes to sell the drama – she was giving some crazy hilarious looks to the cows!
    • Momentarily freaked out when we couldn’t find Luke in chick-fil-a – never a good feeling for a parent!
  • Alisha has a new stage name – Foxy Zebra more to come on that later, including pictures (don’t be scared)
  • Go check out Zombo.com
  • Enjoyed some videos Ken posted here, here and here.
  • We finally got our quad core Mac Pro for ProPresenter. I finally got the chromakey adjusted to a suitable look. Can’t wait to start using PP and take a sledgehammer to old CG system
    • Uhhh…. I mean… I have a great CG system for sale if anyone wants to buy it! :)
  • Excited about tomorrow’s “Let’s Make A Deal” game night at Truth
  • Looking at my todo’s for tomorrow and planning my day before I go to bed! Love my Vitalist!
