Last Saturday night we did a Christmas pageant in our living room. Molly was Mary. Ruby was a shepherd girl. Mack must have been a wolf because he was attacking all of Ruby’s sheep. Josh read the story from Luke 2, and I suppose I was the stage manager as I tried to direct the kid’s in what to say […]
We had a shopping swap with the Bakers, and it was a huge help! We both took care of each other’s kids while getting some Christmas shopping done. Josh and I still have a bit more to go, but that is ok. Alex, Faith, Ruby and Molly made a gingerbread house….
Well, Ruby is going to a birthday party with Katherine this evening and then spending the night with her. She is so very excited! When I told her about the plan this morning, she hugged me and told me I was the best mom in the world. Cute. I am so thankful that she has a close, sweet friend with a great family that I totally trust. She loves spending time with them. So, that leaves me, Molly and Mack here alone. Josh is on his way back from NYC. Molly thrives with one-on-one attention. She likes being THE big sister to Mack. She helped me fold clothes this evening, too. She wanted to know why Daddys wear underwear and girls wear panties. Mack was hiding from us and then coming out and “attacking” us with growls and all. He is such a boy! He fell down one time, and I was just talking to him and saying, “Mack, what happened to you? Huh?” Molly let me say it a few times, then she said, “He fell, Mom.” I told her that I knew he fell. I was just talking to him. She then said, “Mama, he can’t talk” as if I didn’t know that. Josh’s truck has been here because he rode with Jeff to the airport. Well, Molly asked me today, “Is Daddy walking everywhere?” It was funny. She thought that if he didn’t have his truck, then […]
This time of the year really is so wonderful. Having kids has even enhanced the excitement of this time. They yell at every light they see. Ruby even was super excited when she saw the tacky stockings on the light poles at a local Publix. And the music is fun. I can’t tell you how many times I play Jingle […]
Friday night Josh and I went to our Sunday School Christmas party. It was so much fun! Our party planning committee did a FABULOUS job…the decorations were wonderful, the food was yummy, and everyone had a great time. We raised over $1,000 for the Holly Park Mobile Home Park by participating in a silent auction. We brought home some great […]
Last night we had pasta for dinner….Molly kept saying, “Can I have some more possum, please?” It was very funny.
Today was a GREAT day. First of all, my cleaning lady, Mrs. Lee, was scheduled to come clean my house. What a blessing. I have enjoyed her services so much. Secondly, the kids and I were planning to get out of the house for a few hours, which is usually nice. Today they were all so well-behaved and sweet. We […]
