I'm sorry it's been forever since I've posted!! I completely forgot about this thing. Oops! Well not much has been going on. I had band today, which was fun as always. I wonder, do you think someone can actually die from practicing a song so much?? Christmas Carilion sounds really bad, it might kill me.

Last night I was trying to think of a new myspace name, and the name Punk for Christ stuck out to me. then PFC did. Then the thought of having a Christian puck clothing line popped in my head. As most know, I'm really into the whole Emo/Scene group. I love the style, the originality, and fun that comes with it. I guess you could call that my stereotype. tehe. The problem is, when you think of a person with purple hair, black bondage pants, SOAD shirt, and black eyeliner, you don't think that person is a Christian do you? Most don't and that's no kool. So I wanna show people you can be punk, and still worship God. I have a few ideas for jeans and skirts in my mind, now i just have to put it on paper. This will be fun!

He's here! Charlie is home! He was born Thursday morning at 9:00 and he was 7 pounds 1 ounce at 19 inches long! Sad thing was, he was sick, and they had to put in a feeding tube, followed by an IV. but he's home now, after a whole week, and he's sOo cute! I went to see him Friday, and took a few pics! I was scared to hold him though, because I was sick, and because I've never held a two day old baby before. Once he gets a little older though, I promise to always ask 'is it my turn to hold him yet?!' lol here's some pics. Since my computer is slow with uploading, I'm using HTML, and i'm new at that, so I hope these turn out!

this is my aunt holding her new grandson!

here's my sister. she has that 'i can't wait to have a baby too' look in her eyes!

Charles David Deaton

GREAT NEWS! My cousin Joey's wife, Alecia, is going to get induced today, and will more than likely go into labor between tonight and early tomorrow morning! I'm hoping to get to go see this miracle! They will be naming his Charles after my father, which is a blessing I can't even put into words, for my father was a great man. I know they will be great parents. I pray they will raise this child in God's way and will. I can't wait to see if lil' Charlie will have the hereditary 'Brooks gap' between his two front teeth, like all us Brooks's do! They had to induce labor as Alecia's blood pressure is too high, and won't go down. So please keep her in your prayers, so that she and the baby come out healthy! Wow, I can't believe I'm going to see a new born baby; I haven't done that before! I'm really excited, and I'm sure Joey can't wait to see his first son!

I am only 8 inches long
but I have all my organs.
I love the sound of your voice.
Every time I hear it
I wave my arms and legs.
The sound of your heart beat
is my favorite lullaby.

Month Two

today I learned how to suck my thumb.
If you could see me
you could definitely tell that I am a baby.
I'm not big enough to survive outside my home though.
It is so nice and warm in here.

Month Three

You know what Mommy
I'm a boy!!
I hope that makes you happy.
I always want you to be happy.
I don't like it when you cry.
You sound so sad.
It makes me sad too
and I cry with you even though
you can't hear me.

Month Four

my hair is starting to grow.
It is very short and fine
but I will have a lot of it.
I spend a lot of my time exercising.
I can turn my head and curl my fingers and toes
and stretch my arms and legs.
I am becoming quite good at it too.

Month Five

You went to the doctor today.
Mommy, he lied to you.
He said that I'm not a baby.
I am a baby Mommy, your baby.
I think and feel.
Mommy, what's abortion?

Month Six

I can hear that doctor again.
I don't like him.
He seems cold and heartless.
Something is intruding my home.
The doctor called it a needle.
Mommy what is it? It burns!
Please make him stop!
I can't get away from it!
Mommy! HELP me!

Month Seven

I am okay.
I am in Jesus's arms.
He is holding me.
He told me about abortion.
Why didn't you want me Mommy?

Every Abortion Is Just . . .

One more heart that was stopped.
Two more eyes that will never see.
Two more hands that will never touch.
Two more legs that will never run.
One more mouth that will never speak.

the above story means so much to me. I read it on my myspace bulletin board. Abortion is a big problem in today's society, and it needs to stop. i think the more people post this, the better. lots of people i know have already. Tomorrow I'm going to work to be trained as a hostess! please pray for me, as i'm very shy, and very nervous about having to talk to a bunch of people!

My loverly Weekend

I just realized I didn't post about my weekend! oops!

This weekend I had a blast! Friday night I went to the scrimmage with Lauren and Nick. We met up with Jess, RJ, FreakShow, Billy, Aubrey, and others I didn't know. The game ended because someone got injured, so RJ took Lauren, Jess, and me to Lauren's house. We got bored, so RJ took us to eat. He needed gas first, so we went on a scavenger hunt to find a place that would cash his check. We went to Winn Dixie, Food World, and finally Wal Mart. We ate at Wendy's and then were headed out the door to Shawn's house, when Shawn and James came in! So we then finally made it to Lauren's, where we stayed outside being stupid until about 2 a.m. Then Jess and I stayed the night at her house.

Saturday we got up and RJ dropped us off at the Plantation House to eat, YUM! After that, we called AJ to give us a ride home. And we were stuck waiting for about a half hour! We made him late for EnFuego, OOPS!! When we got to Lauren's house, we got ready to go to the stables to see her horses. Kyle wanted to come, but he was too late, so he just came to her house, and we laughed at Jess and Lauren trying to play DDR.RJ then came over around 8, and we went to his dad's house to watch his dad's band practice. They are REALLY REALLY GOOD!!! Afterwards, we rode fourwheelers until about 10. Wow, RJ is scary on those things! He said he couldn't hear after I screamed so loud in his ear. Tehe ;) He finally took me home at 10:30, and I was thankful to be able to take a shower and go to bed!

Sunday, I had another hectic day at work. That's okay though, cuz I had fun!!! It's great to be able to be a teenage sometimes, don't you agree???

Dreams of a masked young man

As most know, I have strange dreams a lot. Some include my wedding, and I never see the face of the one I marry, or the wedding never happens. I got in a creative mood today, and wrote a poem about it. It's not that good, but tell me what you think

I've been having strange dreams
Dreams of a masked-young man
He rides up on a big white horse
And always asks for my hand
I kindly smile and say no
For I'm too young to wed
He says he'll wait til the day
That I will say yes instead
I ask to see his face
The face I so long to see
He says 'I'm sorry, Miss It's not time,'
'To reveal who I am to thee'
I ask 'why did you come tonight
If I can't know who you are?'
He says 'Wait and find out
And I'll ride up again, from afar'

My first day at work

Today I started my Sunday job waitressing at The Plantation House and Gardens. I had so much fun! Here's how my day went

I get there, and they give me all my stuff: shirt, apron, pen and ticket book, and straws. I then begin sweeping and filling coffee pots, because I was in charge of the coffee area. Basically that means if I see the coffee running low, I make more. We opened soon after that, and from 10:30-2:30 I was running around cleaning tables, refilling drinks, asking how everything was going, taking dirty dishes, etc. After that, I FINALLY got a lunch break, and they give the workers a free meal. I didn't eat, because I was too tired! Soon after that, we started closing, and it took two hours for us to clean and prepare forks and knifes in napkins for tomorrow. I made 15 dollars in tips, and 18 for regular pay, which i think is good for one day's work! My friend Jessica works there as the only other waitress, and Tree (nickname) was a hostess, and Matt and Amber cleaned dishes. They were all nice and around my age, which is refreshing to me! I got a blister and red hands from ringing out a rag over fifty times today, and no i'm not kidding, it was over fifty! hehe If you want to make a little extra money, the Plantation House and Gardens is the place. They are short in workers right now, and they hired me right away. Just ask me for directions, and I'll help you get an application. After work, Jessica and I were escorted to the movie theater by A.J. After the movie, we went to Steak and Shake, only I didn't have money left, so A.J. offered to buy me something. I only got water, for I hate having people spend money on me! Turned out the water was free. hehe Now I'm home and tired, but I had so much fun at work. I might even quit my other job,who knows. anyways i gotta run now. bye!
