My Boys, Glamping in Style…

One day back in June, Jonah got a phone call from a friend inviting him and the boys to go camping. Of course they were thrilled and jumped at the chance to go. Well, let me tell you, after our camping trip in March (also known as winter around here), the boys had fun and were living it up in style, Glamping, at Fort Rodd Hill.

More Hours In My Day Please…

Do you ever feel like there are just not enough hours in the day? Sometimes I feel like I am burning the candle at both ends and not ever getting any farther to my goals, but the kidlets always come first (well after God and my husband, of course). Moses had a headache for a few days last week and I didn’t think anything of it (except dehydration and too much sun). Then one day this week, Zion woke up with a high fever (can’t remember the exact day, but I am thinking Tuesday) and later that morning Malachi woke …

Gotta Get Up

I woke up this morning all freezing cold. Well, no wonder. My daughter crawled into bed beside me some time during the night and took all the blankets. So, I get up in a mad rush to use the potty (because I am freezing cold) only to discover that I had fallen asleep in my clothes (good thing or I would have been really cold). I think, it is light enough to be morning and maybe time to get up, but I really hope it is not. The house is quiet and no kids are making noise, so maybe I …

Our Bedtime Song

I stayed up late to work. Yes, I know I should be sleeping. My daughter should be sleeping too. We heard these weird cries that almost sounded like cats mating outside. Please don’t tell Hosanna that her agitated late night cries sound like cats in heat. That wouldn’t be very nice. Well, anyways… we were in the living room and we kept hearing these weird noises. We couldn’t figure out if it was coming from upstairs or outside. Jonah went upstairs and left the hall light on in case she was having nightmares. He came back down and got settled …

Potty Training Twins

Potty Training Twins is just another way for God to work out patience and long-suffering in parents. One twin wants to pee on the potty and is doing so quite happily. The other… well, that is a whole different story. Patience and lots of grace. New underwear, new potty chair, smarties, and a little bit of musical motivation. This is what is playing at our house today. A lovely follow up to yesterday’s worship music post.

Thinking Deep Thoughts Today

My heart is very heavy today. I have many other things that I want to write about (camping, spring cleaning, and our little urban garden to name a few), but the truth is, there are some things that I simply have to share. What In The World Is Going On? I am going to let you read and draw your own conclusions, but I am left scratching my head at the state of the world today… Abort the babies to harvest the eggs from the little girls to implant in moms who want to have babies. (I simply have no words…) …
