So I lied….

I guess all it takes to get a funny, blog-worthy moment from my kids is to say that there have been none lately.  It’s only been an hour since my last post.   So, I am trying to NOT let the girls take a nap today.  Lately, we have been going to bed way too late, then they are exhausted […]

Just so you know…

We are packing and preparing to move.  Bitter sweet….I can’t wait to get in the new house and be settled.  The whole process leading up to it is what might kill me.  So please know that I may not be posting very much….partly because not much is very cute or sweet to me in the middle of all this chaos and partly because I am busy with boxes.  Say a prayer for our sanity.   And for the Lord to keep us in perfect peace as we trust in Him in the coming days.  I haven’t moved in six years, which is a record for me since I started moving regularly at the age of 13.  We have a lot of stuff.  It’s the kid’s fault.

The Third Child/Baby of the family

  That Mack is quite the character. Lately he has been saying, “pookie-kookie” or “poopie-koopie” or “oopie-koopie-poopie.” We don’t know what it all means. He doesn’t either. He just enjoys the jabbering and having the family laughing at him. And in his mind there are only two letters in the Alphabet. He sings, “A-C-A-C-A-C-A….” to the tune of the ABC […]

No pictures-

I have no pictures to go along with our day, so I was mindful to take the pictures in my mind….. -Early morning breakfast of cinnamon rolls and bacon and grits…sweet faces telling me thank you and full bellies running off to play -Fun at a park where we had our lunch by a lake; we just decided to do it because it seemed like fun.  It was.  The kids were laughing.  Molly was eating like a trucker.  She likes “bone chicken.”   -Ruby leaving her shoes at our new house, so Mack had to give her his flip flops and he was carried everywhere…not an easy job! -Molly pooping in her pants at a park and me trying to clean her up at a nasty port-a-potty…She wanted to know why the water in the “toilet” was grape.  You see, it was purple b/c of the scent they add to that HORRIBLY DISGUSTING situation.  But I had to laugh at her question.  Never mind the fact that SHE IS ALMOST FOUR YEARS OLD AND HAS ISSUES WITH POOPING ON A POTTY!!!! -It was such fun to stop in at a cute gift shop and buy a few cute things!  We walked to an ice cream shop after that…the kids were hilarious in there.  Ruby and Molly were enjoying their ice cream at a moderate pace.  Mack, on the other hand, inhaled his chocolate ice cream—all except the last little bit […]

I will love the price.

Ruby and Molly were watching a CEDARMONT KID’S VIDEO.  These are cheesey cute videos of kids singing and dancing.  My kids love watching them and singing and dancing along.  I was fixing their lunch when Ruby came in and said to me in a very matter-of-fact tone, “Mom, you’re gonna love the price of that Cedarmont video.  You are, yep…you’re gonna love it.”  I quickly realized that she was repeating what the end of the video says when they are advertising all the other kinds of videos….they say, “Kids will love the videos; Parents will love the price!”  Very cute of Ruby. Another cute story happened this morning.  I decided to try and floss the girl’s teeth.  I started with Ruby.  When Molly came in to see what was going on, Ruby said, “Mom is glossing my teeth.  You’re next.”   Mack is talking a lot these days.  He says, “Hold MEEEE, mama.  Hold MEEEE”  a lot.  He also says, “YO’ bed, Mama.  YO’ bed” at night when it is time for him to go to his bed.  He is so cute!!!  He likes to run to the girl’s room and “hide” under their covers while they are going potty before getting in bed.  It is adorable.  When we move I am sure he will be sneaking into the girl’s room for the night.  Our room is downstairs, so he will probably get away with much more!   We should […]

Love this story

So, the “1997” post picture has sparked conversation with friends that didn’t know Josh or me back then.  It has been 12 years ago!  I was telling some friends last night about a very neat story that I would most definitely want my kids to know about.   Paige, my room mate, and I were sitting in Huddle House because […]
