Letters of Intent

Dear Somer,

You are 4 months old tomorrow. You have grown so much in a very short amount of time. You are sleeping in the "Girls Room" and sleeping for 12 hours at night. You love to smile and laugh at people especially your brother and sister. You are starting to eat every 4 hours. You enough standing up - and talking to all of us. You have learned to growl and find in fascinating when we growl back, and you also like to stick your tangue out and see if you stick ours out. You love bath time and splashing water every where. You live up to your middle name and are a true Joy to be around. We are enjoying seeing the little lady you are becoming. As Benen calls you "Somer Womer" we love you.

Your Momma

Dear Benen,

Can I just say that I love your little underwear covered chubbies. I AM SO PROUD OF YOU FOR ACTUALLY POTTY TRAINING. I am not sure if it is just timing or the fact that I asked our small group to pray for you to start, but this momma is praising the Lord. You are doing so good and I am so proud of you. Keep it up handsome big boy.

One Proud Excited (to have one less diaper to change) Mom

Dear Anna,

While you are my beautiful princess, and I am thankful that you wanted to learn to change Somer's diaper and you actually enjoyed it that does not mean you get to change all her diapers nor do you get to be the parent and think you know everything that Somer needs or wants. I am just saying. I love you but you are 6 going on 7 not 6 going on 30.

Your Momma - the QUEEN of this Castle my fair Princess

Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for coffee, friends, and time to myself. If you want to win a chance to enjoy some coffee and time to yourself then go to Jerome's Women and enter her fantastic give away.

Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for....
... God's grace and protection.
... peace.
... flexibility in homeschooling.
... my baby girls smile - it seriously lights up the room.
... my big girl and just how big she really is.
... my little (okay not so little; but I am not ready for him to be bigger) man that is willing to try anything and thinks he is invincible i.e. trying to jump off of the top bunk of his bed this week. He repeatedly told me that he would not get hurt and repeatedly told him no he would get hurt - I won I threatened to take away the bed.
... my handsome hubby that works very hard to provide for our family.
... the fact that God is in control.
... the fall colors.
... the fact that seasons change - both in life and in nature.

My Man Rocks

My Man Rock because he tries to be a Godly leader and head of the house. He seeks God earnestly and is willing to be honest when he is falling. I love him - his is an amazing example of a Godly man.
