Oooooh! That smell, can't you smell that smell?

If your 2 yr old asks for a snack and you are changing the baby's diaper,
you might tell him he can have a banana.
And if you told him that,
he might think you actually said strawberry yougurt.
And if he gets out that yogurt,
he might realize he does not like strawberry chunks in it.
And if he sees those chunks he might just throw it all over the kitchen floor.
And if you go past that kitchen thinking he is eating a banana but yet smell the sweet smell of strawberries,
you might want to stop and take a look.
And then you will find strawberry yogurt all over the kitchen floor.
And then you'll be balancing a sick runny nose slightly fevered baby in one arm and paper towels in the other up that strawberry yogurt.

Just sayin'.

(pssst.  Can you please say a little prayer for my sweet baby who will be 5 months old tomorrow?!?!? She is not feeling well and that makes this momma sad and tired too! )
God bless!

So glad this tree is gone with all those tornado warnings/watches we've had for the past few months.  I am so relieved! 

What a terrific babysitter it was for the day too!!!
I think I may need some more trees cut down soon so I can get those babysitters back! haa haa!!! :)  JK!

God bless,

9th Birthday Pics

Yesterday was my oldest daughter's 9th birthday and guess where we went!
It has to do with shoes and balls...



Those shoes always look so darn cute on little feet, huh?!?!

Now, check out my new 9 yr old daughter!

It was quite the adventure telling them over and over again to stay off of where the bowler is... I think they got it finally 10 minutes before we left! haaa

I love this pic:
Do you see his socks?  Only a sweet cute 4 yr old can pull that off!
And that cute big guy next to the cute little guy?  Yeah, he's taken.

Bowling!  We got a sweet deal of 2 free games (yes, FREE!) per week per child.  All we had to do was pay for the shoe rentals for them all.   We loved it, had such fun, cheered each other on-we were really loud!!! but, do you know what was louder?  The nasty music!  My hubby asked them to turn it down when we arrived b/c we could not even think, it was that loud.  But, we think they must have turned it back up little by little-it was SO loud when we left! 

And that music?  Oh my.  No thank you.  Let's just say that my kids were like

"What is that?  What are they saying?  Why aren't they listening to the Christian music station?"

But before we left, it was CAKE TIME:

Happy Bday to you!!!
God bless,

Happy 9th Birthday!

My sweet BIG girl turns a BIG 9 today!:)
Our world was forever changed when God blessed us with you...
you are my right hand lady, always willing to clean up messes (esp. your brothers' messes!!!)...
always ready to help your Momma when my hands are full (which is pretty often, huh?!)
you are determined to not let your petiteness get in the way of achieving BIG!
you are focused and delight in order...
you are a little fashion bug...with tons of barrets in your hair and many different hair styles throughout the day!
You love babies and already know you want "at least 20"!!!
You make the best chocolate chip pancakes around...
you choose to wear fancy dresses every day, always reminding me that every day is a celebration!

You are SO awesome and we love you so much!
Happy 9th Birthday to you!
God bless you!

God bless,

Quote of the day

With light from You, I now see that I could not accomplish by myself the things that I wanted to do most. I said to myself: ‘I shall do this, I shall finish that,’ and I did not do either the one or the other. The will was there but not the power, and if the power was there, my will was not; this because I had trusted in my own strength. Sustain me then, O Lord, for alone I can do nothing. However, when You are my stability, then it is true stability; but when I am my own stability, then it is weakness.
-- St Augustine
