Long Time No Talk To

I promise I've had so many things to talk to you guys about...but I'm a member of


Why do we do this? Put things off and keep adding and adding and adding to our lists of things to do. Then, one day has turned into weeks.

Speaking of those lists of things to do, I have several things to get done before heading out to church this evening. So, once again I'm not going to give you a "real" post. But something needs to be posted. Or AHHH you may totally give up on me! We just don't want that now do we?!


6 days left y'all and counting...until this election has come to an end. I certainly pray it's the result we've all been praying for. But, at least it will over! I've had enough of the tv ads and the radio ads and the newspaper ads and the polls and the drama and backbiting. It's all I can take!! My word - has it ever been quite this bad before? Uggh!

Okay so quickly - below is a pic of E with her new piano. She loves it and each day she begs for me to turn praise and worship music on so that she can play along with it. Our lil' composer...

Politics and Healing

So after we got home from church tonight, I asked E what her lesson was about in Rainbows...her Wednesday night class.

She said with very much excitement, "Ah!! A man got healed. Jesus heal him."

I said, "Really? Why did he do that?"

"Because Jesus is sweet." "Hey, you sweet too mommy."

"But, what was wrong with the man?"

"Um, he was the pwesident."

Enough said there.

Alphabet Soup

My child knows her alphabet. She has for a long time now. But, as most kids do for the letters L-P...

Well, she made the cutest "Alphabet Soup" with um...that.

A B C D E F G H I J K "and a little P" Q R S T U B W S Y and Z.

HA - You SO know you just sang that whole song out when you read that didn't you? Huh...DIDN'T YOU? :c)

Is that what she truly thinks it says? Each week at school, they are learning new letters of course. Like today she learned the letter "H" and tomorrow all the kids are wearing cool hats all day at school. You know...H for Hat...oh I'm sure you got it - sorry.

What will happen in a few weeks when they reach the letter "and a little P"?

I guess we've all had it wrong for a very long time.

I love to hear your comments! It lets me know you're reading!

Wordless Wednesday...Generations

Precious moments to cherish...

A relationship that could never be described...decades apart in age, yet the friendship of two children. They are blessed to know each other.

...But words will never hurt me (Sticks & Stones)

I don't even remember the situation, but at some point earlier in the week, something I said upset E. Well, let's put it this way: No 3 year old enjoys being told "no"...non-stop. :c)

So, she thought she'd get back at me and here's what she came up with in about 1.5 seconds.

She cussed me out. NO ~ not really! But, she said,...

"Mommy, you a Catapiwer. You a Doggie. You a Spider! Hum!" Then, crossed her arms and stomped out.

Oh the things they say. She thought she had said something big too! Almost like she was proud of coming up with that on her own.

I could barely control my laughter!
