Goodnight Dad!

The kids telling "Ghost Stories", It was all about Santa Claus and screaming "Boo".

What was that noise?  Mo-o-om a picture!
Good night Daddy!
Good night Dadio!
Getting settled reading our books!

Pioneer Living

My daughter and her new friend, dressing up as pioneer girls!  Having a blast and making new friends in the process.  Our lives have been so blessed!


They are best buds.  The two shy girls who moved into the cul de sac about the same time about 6 months ago.  They hit it off so well and now spend most of their home time together.  My daughter's friend will be moving this summer and I am anticipating tears.  My daughter has been blessed by a great friend and for that I am glad they can have fun and enjoy each other even for this short time.  Here's to all the childhood friends we remember, cherish and have been blessed by!

Sleeping In Rubbermaid

I tuck in her bed every night, and every night I have to put her back but it is usually just from walking down the hall.  Tonight she fell asleep in her sister's dress up box.  She fell asleep in a Rubbermaid container!  I moved her so she wouldn't wake up and not know where she is but even for a few how can this be comfy?

I ventured out of my comfort zone today and took the kids out in town by myself.  We headed to the beach and dipped our toes in the Icy Atlantic!  The kids had fun and collected sea shells.  We will have to pack a picnic soon and head out the beach again!

Monkey See Monkey Do

This was too cute.  My youngest gathered up her bedding and made her own little bed next to her sister's bed.  I am okay with emulating her older sister in this way.  I love that my kids really do love eachother and I love that they all have a love for books.


This never happens...they only play when they get in bed with the other one.  I love that they actually fell asleep.  Now if only their big kid beds would get here so there is enough room for both of them.

She is great...She has a sweet spirit.  She loves her family and friends.  She had breakfast waiting for me when I got out of bed this morning.  Toast with butter and Jam and nice tall glass of milk.  The Coffee was too hot for her to pour she said.  She also made breakfast (cereal) for her brother and sister so that I wouldn't have to.  I feel loved!  My kids are amazing!

Happy Mother's Day

So this has to be one of the best Mother's day gifts ever.  To know a little of what your child thinks of you and it isn't the hideous monster I feel they see.
It is a little hard to read but reads:
My Mother is a Funny Mom
With great dresses
My Mother lives in a Beautiful House
She loves to run
She is very happy when I say I love her
She feels very happy
She eats Breakfast Burritos
Her friends are lisa and sherry
She loves my family
She is a greatful Women Mom

Mean Mom

We had the meanest mother in the whole world!
   While other kids ate candy for breakfast, we had to have cereal, eggs, and toast.  When others had a Pepsi and a Twinkie for lunch, we had to eat sandwiches. And you can guess our mother fixed us a dinner that was different from what other kids had too.
   Mother insisted on knowing where we were at all times.  You'd think we were convicts in a prison.  She had to know who our friends were and what we were doing with them.  She insistd that if we said we would be gone for an hour, we would be gone for an hour or less.
   We were ashamed to admit it, but she had the nerve to break the Child Labor Laws by making us work.  We had to wash the dishes, make the beds, learn to cook, vacuum the floor, do laundry, and all sorts of cruel jobs.  I think she would lie awake at night thinking of more things for us to do.
   She always insisted on us telling the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.  By the time we were teenagers, she could read our minds.
   Then, life was really tough!  Mother wouldn't let our friends just honk the horn when they drove up.  They had to come up to the door so she could meet them.  While everyone else could date when they were 12 or 13, we had to wait until we were 16.
   Because of our mother we missed out on lots of things other kids experienced.  None of us have ever been caught shoplifting, vandalizing another's property, or ever arrested for any crime.  It was all her fault.
   Now that we have left home, we are all God-fearing, educated, honest adults.  We are doing our best to be mean parents just like mom was.  I think that's what's wrong with the world today.  It just doesn't have enough mean moms anymore.
