Now that Thanksgiving has passed, we’ve decided to step on into the Christmas Season! Fun times! Technically (not that we are very technical about anything around here), it was Mack’s turn to put the angel on the top of the tree. However, Mack told Josh, “I don’t like girls,” which meant he didn’t want to put the angel on the […]
Being dealt some lemons as of late, we are all under one roof (many lysol wipes, ibuprofen doses, sleepless nights, and eight hours on the road later). Josh thought he’d go ahead and take Molly and Mack to see his parents in South GA, but after being there about two hours, it seemed that Mack had a fever, so he […]
Or maybe a scary turkey!! I don’t know. I saw a picture of this turkey online and thought it would be cute, but I didn’t take the directions to the store, so I just bought what I thought would work. The results are kind of funny, but Mack and Molly had fun with it! When Molly wasn’t fussing at Mack […]
Just some pictures that I haven’t posted…. Molly had pajama day while I was in Indonesia. She just had to wear this Fancy Nancy gown. Josh did have her wear shorts and a t-shirt underneath though. This was the night I got back from Indonesia…a long 11 days away from the family! They are showing off their cheap watches I […]
Today was the annual Thanksgiving Feast at the girls school. It is such a great way to kick off our Thanksgiving Break. We started off in Ruby’s room with her being the Miller in the play, Stone Soup. She did a good job! Mrs. O helped hold her book since she still has that cast on! After the play was […]
…and maybe too personal, but oh well. This morning I was ranting about how no one puts anything away and how Mommy’s always have to work since the little ones don’t put things back where they go….blah, blah, blah. Mack just point-blank asked me: “Mama. Why you mad?” I just stopped and started laughing. I went on to explain that every month most Mommys get a headache or get annoyed and that maybe if I could just have some time alone I would feel better. Mack said, “Yeah, maybe you should have your quiet time…..” Ruby interrupted and whispered in his ear,”…and a donut stick!” How funny is that??? And true, too! So I sent the kids to watch a movie while I sit and have my quiet time and tell Jesus how I am the only one who ever puts anything away and how I am so tired! He’ll listen to me. As for the donut stick, I better pass. Next week offers way too many yummy options to waste calories on a processed donut stick! But Ruby had a good point.
Mack imitates Cowgirl Jesse by saying, “Lee-lee-wooo-hooooo.” That is his form of yodeling. When we played charades last night he was Woody. Every time. And every time he would say, “There’s a snake in my boot.” And every time the girls guessed that he was Woody, he would walk back to his seat saying, “YESSSSSSSsss,” like he had done so good. When he wasn’t being Woody, he was doing the exact same thing that Ruby, who went right before him, had done. Funny kid.
