I am thankful for…

Sunglasses, suits, butter, and of course something to put the butter on. Perhaps some buns would do! LOL

Right, girls??

Friend of the month

So before you say anything (even though I can’t hear it) I just want to say I know that I am WAAAY behind…but then you can’t REALLY blame me. …too much!! 😀 If you only knew…and that is all I am going to say. So for all of you that have no idea what I just said or what I am talking about…we are now moving on!! 😀 (See…I knew you would be excited)

So seeing as I have July, August, September, October, and November’s friend-of-the-month…um…I don’t know what to say! Hmmm… Ok I have most of those friends picked out and will try to have them up on the blog within the next week…so…please bear with me! 😀

Thanks for your understanding and cooperation!! 😀


Ok…to begin this post you all need to know something! 😀 I LOVE KIDS! 😀 I mean really love them…sometimes I think I regret loving them so much like when I end up short on help in my S.S. class, or am asked to keep the kids at home while my parents go out on a date night! *wink* Those kind of moments make me want to reconsider…but I don’t! 😀 I still LOOOOOOOVE kids! So, occasionally there will be those moments when really they are just too cute for the own good.

Like when Lydia was caught sneaking candies from Mom’s room…so she ran into the living room, threw herself on the couch, and covered her head with a pillow. Mom proceeded to ask her: “Lydia, why did you eat the candy?” Amid the sniffles her response came: “Mom, I was hungry!” BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Mom is supposed to be getting her in trouble for eating the candies right, but she turns around and starts shaking with laughter, albeit silent laughter! (Fortunately Lydia still had her head under the pillow) 😀

Then just today we set down to breakfast and Nathaniel proceeded to go on and on about the dog that my cousins just got. After listening to Nathaniel for a minute, Josiah turned to him and said, “Hey, bubby, what brand was the dog??” RFLOL

Sometimes kids are just too cute! 😀 That’s one of the reasons I guess that I still love them! 😀

  • He spoke with the wisdom that can only come from experience, like a guy who went blind because he looked at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it and now goes around the country speaking at high schools about the dangers of looking at a solar eclipse without one of those boxes with a pinhole in it.

But out of respect for whoevers website this is I will make sure to post the website address. When I read this I took into laughing really hard! I mean…how can you be that bad.
