Winter Jam 2011 post #1

In my facebooking my blog post I mentioned that on 1/30/11 I took Princess and her friend Crazy J. To the Winter Jam concert... We had the best time ever.. So I thought I would take a moment and post all about it.. I think it might take a few post not that I have alot to say just I took alot of pictures and alot of videos and I want to share them all. :-) We will start out with the two hour wait out in the freezing cold. :-)

We got there at 2:30pm the doors weren't opening till 4:30pm but we wanted to make sure we were able to get tickets and good seats. Not to mention I follow Sidewalk Prophets on facebook and twitter and I knew they came out to hang with the fans and I didn't want to miss them...


Did i mention me and my bible study girls went to their concert back in December also.. if not here is a picture from back in Dec 2010 Ok back to Winter jam and freezing before the shows.. Oh my goodness I lost feeling in my toes, after getting into the building it took just over an hour before they weren't painful anymore, it was COLD...

Princess saw a group of teens playing ninja and jumped right in with them... think I'm mentioned before she is NOT shy. LOL.. here are some of the Ninja shots. After the Ninja game broke up and Princess and Crazy J started freezing again.. I took pity on them, handed them the keys and told them they could go back and sit in the van for 30 mins and stay warm and I would hold our spot in line. They jumped all over that and took off to stay warm. BOY did they miss out though..

Just after they left Jon Micah Sumrall and Nick DePartee of Kutless came out to hang with the freezing crowd a bit.. So me being just about as shy as Princess asked if I could get my picture with them. They were both so super nice..

To get this picture I turned to a family with a few teenagers who was in line behind me handed them my camera and said here can you take our picture.. After Jon Micha and Nick left the father asked me who was it I just had my picture taken with, when I told them it was Kutless, the teenagers got all excited and started screaming and jumping up and down for them to come back.. Jon Micha did while Nick went on to say hello to others in line.. One of the teenage girls was screaming "can I have a hug" Jon Micha said "how bout a hand shake" The girl was all like "Noooooooooooooo I want a hug" He said "sorry I only do hand shakes" I LOVED that... it showed what sort of character he has and that just stuck with me.

After they moved on I went back to freezing and wishing I could feel my toes... some time passed and we had another visitor come to keep us company, and i was extremely happy I was close to the front of the line because when the circled formed I was right there in the front of it. Chris August came out to perform his new song for us.. Said he was trying to help keep our mind off how cold we were. I wanted to txt the girl in the van and tell them all they were missing but then I wouldn't have been able to video tape this.

After he sang and passed out stuff to the fans, everyone had crowded us in that there wasn't really a line anymore and me being so short I did not see the the Sidewalk Prophets had came out and set up the stool that they had out for people to sign.. :(

I wanted to sign it but didn't see them until it was too late. They must have got there around the same time that Princess and Crazy J came back to join me..

I"m going to post this now and start the next winter jam post because blogger is acting up and I can't seem to load anymore pictures onto this one..

BRB in a 2nd post.

Facebooking my blog #5 January 2011

Happy 1 1 11
January 1 at 12:28am

Just waking up from the long but fun night.. I would say I feel old for sleeping in so late.. but seeing how me and my boys are the only ones awake at my place I'm not feeling that old.. the teenagers or stilled sound asleep as is Sweet Pea and DH.
January 1 at 10:53am

Waiting for Heather to come hang a bit.. the kids keep asking when are they coming????
January 1 at 1:15pm

Relaxing in bed watching v and playing with my nook
January 1 at 8:20pm

Home from church today :( with 3 sick kids.. DH was staying with them while Mr man and I went to church.. that was until Little Man started puking and crying his eyes out for mom.. So I turned around and now here I sit.
January 2 at 10:28am

Rhett just cam from the bathroom "mom did you know diarrhea is made out of poop?"
Hahahahahahaha... oh being a mom to a 5 year old boy is so much fun..:-)
January 2 at 2:00pm

I'm sort of finding it funny that my boys are sitting next to each other playing tag... Yes tag, like in your It.... but they are playing it on the wii...
January 2 at 8:25pm

Sleeping on the couch tonight since both my sick babies want to sleep with mom and since I don't feel like sleeping between two sick kids I made doggie beds on the livingroom floor for Sweet Pea and Little Man and ill take the couch.
January 2 at 11:28pm

I found about 10 christmas cards that I signed, addressed and stamped but never got around to mailing out... WOW I'm so on the ball.... Oh well hey if you get a Christmas card like a month late from me just know I was thinking of you before Christmas..
January 3 at 12:48pm

The plan is for all 4 kids to make it to school tomorrow.. fingers crossed there will be no more sickness tomorrow.
January 3 at 9:59pm

Alone at last... :-) DH went back to work today and all 4 kids are at school. Now to figure out where to put all the stuff they got at christmas.
January 4 at 9:00am

cooking dinner.. kids are playing wii.. later tonight OSU football.. but between 9-10pm its all about V.. with football during commercials.
January 4 at 5:41pm

this is not a good thing.. my poor tummy is killing me :( I was really hoping to avoid the bug the kids had... YUCK....
January 4 at 7:58pm

feeling better just a bit on the tired side.. Only now I have Princess home sick.. That only leaves Mr Man who hasn't had it. Then it should be out of my house... Yea!!!!
January 5 at 9:18am

Don't worry that is just me screaming nothing to worry about and don't freak out if you see my computer flying through the window. I tell ya if this thing turns off on me one more time......
January 5 at 1:00pm

Why are my children still awake and bickering in their beds?? I just found myself saying "DON'T MAKE ME COME IN THERE" LOL... That ranks right up there with the worst saying in the whole wide world "Because I said so" Look what these children make me do... :-)
January 5 at 10:35pm

Its Mr Man's turn. He is theone home from school today. my kids share really well. On a good note i didn't have to go to my dentist appt this morning since I have a sick child who I can't leave home alone. See there's an upside to everything:)
January 6 at 9:14am

thinking I should find something healthy for lunch seeing how my breakfast was a bottle of water and sno-caps :-)
January 6 at 12:18pm

Im so glad the doctor office moved my appt up an hour only 2 tell me they r running way behind
January 6 at 8:16pm

‎3 cases of strep and an ear infection... As soon as I got home from the doctors at 9:30pm with Princess, Mr Man and Little Man.. I packed up Sweet Pea and took her to my grandma to spend the next 24 hours... I tell ya when her PANDAS symptoms started to flare over the last two days I knew she had been around strep.. It just didn't hit me till this afternoon that it could have been her brothers and sister who had it..
January 6 at 10:35pm

I just tested pos 4 Strep :( now im waiting 4 my z pack 2 be ready think i should see he they will call something in 4 DH
January 7 at 2:29pm

In my pj's, on the couch layingdown with my blanket,pillowand nook. Hopefully I don't have to move tne rest of the night. Barry is in charge of dinner and child care from this point on.
January 7 at 5:59pm

Why is it the 15 yrs old(well almost) and the 5yr old fight the most?? I think it has something to do with their personality being alike but its rather funny to listen to and watch
January 8 at 10:44am

I love my nookcolor ereader. It has been extreamly useful as I lay here not feeling like moving I can read and. Check facebook without getting out of bed if one has to feel sick cool toys are the way to do it
January 8 at 1:47pm

Think I might putt the nook away, feeling a little tired of reading. Time to pull out the dvd's Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse sounds like a good way to spend an evening in bed.
January 8 at 6:04pm

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death Your perfect love is casting out fear And even when I'm caught in the middle of the storms of this life
I won't turn back I know you are near
January 8 at 10:33pm

My hubby is the best he just brought home my favorite comfort sick food. KFC mashpotato bowl
January 9 at 12:12pm

My parents just left, they stopped by and gave Princess her birthday gift 9 days early..
January 9 at 7:47pm

So am I like the only person who still has their christmas tree up
January 9 at 8:01pm

Post strep infection!!!! can't my kids just get normal things like a cold or something.. Mr man was in extream pain lastnight with his knee killing him, that and stomach pain and vomitting.. took him back to the doctors to be tolad it's like a secondary strep infection which is bringing on these symptoms.
January 10 at 12:59pm

Maybe just maybe I might finish this weeks Bible study before we meet tomorrow night.. you know the plan of one of day this week sort of got messed up when I got sick.. feeling better now and just finished one days study..:-) two more to go...
January 10 at 7:48pm

ornaments are now off the tree.. but dang it one of my favorite hallmark keepsake ornaments has gone missing.. I put it on the tree this year cuz the keepsake box is empty but it's not on the tree or under the tree.
January 11 at 12:31pm

off to the school for a meeting for Rhett.. It's snowing really good out there ..
January 11 at 2:49pm

Thought I was feeling all better till I went out to shovel the driveway so that Barry wouldn't have to do it when he got home.. My goodness did that take every bit of energy I had.. guess I'm not back to 100% yet..
January 11 at 7:41pm

Man there better be a two hour delay in the morning cuz I can't sleep even though I'm extreamly sleepy...
January 12 at 12:45am

yea baby 2 hour delay :)
January 12 at 5:36am

After getting the kids to school had to spend a good amount of time calling to change all the plans for the month.. One thing gets changed and I have to change 4 or 5 other things to work around the 1 change... Will no longer be going to Akron tomorrow won't be going till the 18th.
January 12 at 1:06pm

Thank you Lord for a wonderful neighbor who suprised me by useing his snowplow on my front sidewalk.. After doing the driveway lastnight I wasn't looking forward to having to get the sidewalk cleared today.. Think I'll leave the snow in the driveway for DH ;)
January 12 at 1:15pm

UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! doctors.... UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
January 12 at 6:54pm

my soon to be 15 year old is amazed at the fact that if she sticks a blue cup inside of a red cup that they turn purple
January 12 at 7:11pm

Looks like Sweet Pea has the next 6 days off school.. Think being around all this sickness is getting to her also, being on a daily antibiotic for the last 8 months has kept her from getting a full blown case of strep but she is sick today. No school friday and monday for the kids, and tuesday she will be at the childrens Hospital seeing the immuneologist..
January 13 at 9:19am

There you will all be happy to know the Christmas tree is now down and out of my house.. shhhhh we won't talk about the fact that all the other christmas decorations are still up around this place :P I also happy to report that the missing christmas orniment has been found.. laying deep in the branches down in the middle of the tree.
January 13 at 10:49am

Since it's now after 1am.. I think I'll head of to read and then go to sleep.. night all.

January 16 at 2:10pm
