A Look into the Past

I was looking back at my old facebook posts and decided to share my favorites:

4yo just said, “Mom, my bottom just coughed!” Guess that’s the new politically correct way to say it!        ~ Bethany

Oops! I just accidentally referred to the little communion cups as shot glasses!
~ Tabetha

In an attempt to encourage my 4YO’s art work, I asked her what she was drawing. She said, “throw up in a trash can.” Oh…so glad I asked!    ~ Bethany

Oh, Silence, you are such a mystery, but if you explained yourself, you would give up your whole identity!      ~ Tabetha

4YO to 7YO, “I will never like you again!” Me, “That wasn’t very nice.” 4YO, “OK, Peter, I’ll like you tomorrow.”  ~Peter and Bethany

My 2YO just looked at my brownie batter and said, “Mom, can we eat mud?”
~ Bethany

Phillip (8), “Mom, can a bunny fly faster than an eagle can hop?” Now he’s beginning to sound like me!

As we were walking along obviously about to get drenched in the rain, Anna (11) said, “Oh well! Don’t cry over spilled clouds.”

Bethany wanted to wear her crocs today, so she asked me, “Mom, can I wear my crock pots?”  ~ Bethany (age 5)

I was looking all over for the red stuff Bethany (5) said was floating in the sky. Then I realized she was referring to the sunset!

Candice very respectfully said, “Mom, will you peas dit out da way?” (age 2)

Me: “Mom needs a bib” – Bethany: “ha ha! Mom’s gonna use a bib” – Me: “not for me! For the baby” Bethany (disappointedly): “Oh.”   (age 5)

I must be tired. I just looked for pajamas in the refrigerator!  ~Tabetha


Acrostic Ice Breaker

Luke suggested a cool idea for getting your brain to cooperate while writing a blog post. The idea is to choose a word and make an acrostic for it. It is interesting how much you can get to know a person this way.

I had fun writing this acrostic about a sweater and hope that you will participate as well. If you do, please link to Luke’s original post, so he can enjoy your participation in his acrostic project! Have fun!

Soft –
The sweater I have in mind is very soft and comfortable. Because of this it is also…

Well worn –
Who can help wearing a favorite sweater even after it is well worn and ugly? Because I wear it alot, it has many occasions to be….

Electric –
Ever pull a sweater from the dryer and practically watch sparks fly as you pull another piece of clothing from it? Of course I have to be careful when drying it because it is 43%…

Acrylic –
Of course despite the fact that it is acrylic, it is one of my favorites, so it is…

Turned to time after time –
Unfortunately turning to it time after time can also be…

Embarrassing –
I am sure you are saying that I shouldn’t be embarrassed to wear my favorite sweater, but I guess I am weird. I never wear it to church any more because it looks old and worn. The only thing that makes up for its old and worn look is the fact that it is…

Rust colored –
Sweaters this color remind me of carpet or something old. In my opinion the fact that it looks old and worn tells the truth about it, and that is what makes it the perfect favorite sweater!

A New Favorite Movie

I watched a particular movie today for the second time, and I now believe it may be one of the best movie I have ever seen! Of course, part of that may be due to the fact that it is a Christian movie that gives much praise to God!

The name of the movie is Facing the Giants. Do yourself a favor and watch it as soon as possible. It is well worth your time!

Air Hockey Tournament

Since we are babysitting for friends at their house, and they have an air hockey table, we decided to have an air hockey tournament for family night tonight. We had 9 participants, ranging in age from 5 to 31.

Now I know that sounds unfair, but we all had fun, even when we were losing. There’s just something exhilarating about using a piece of plastic to knock a round disk all over an air blowing table!

It is really not surprising that the final round consisted of the 4 oldest participants, ages, 9, 10, 31, and 31, or that the last 2 players remaining were the two adults (although the 10 year old was a challenge for me)!

We had a ton of fun and a blast too!

Note: If you are wondering, Luke won the tournament, of course! He always does, but I don’t mind because he always does it so humbly! He is an awesome sport!

One Man Show

This video was screaming to be posted even though I have no idea what they are saying. So, if they say anything inappropriate, please forgive me. 🙂

After the video is over, click here to find out how you can help the people of China in their pursuit of freedom (uhm, to make it possible for them to see this cool video among other things). If you did not already know, their internet connections are closely monitored to make sure they do not see anything the government does not like, and if you say the wrong thing you could go to jail.

You can be a huge help without spending a penny, and it only takes five minutes! Click Here.

Randomly Generated Blogging

Looking for a quick and easy blog post? Karen Swim introduced me to something called  Lazy Bloggers Post Generator. Here is what I came up with using this blogging method.

Peter Pan! I just had a cup of tea and realized I have not updated this since you last visited… You would not believe how good I look after all the plastic surgery. I hope they bring chocolate!.

I am totally exhausted with discovering time doesn’t stand still, homeschooling five children, just generally being a companion to my husband, my day is fun and exciting from 8am to 11pm at which point I fall asleep on the couch. I am totally loving it, dudes. life happens.

I probably I will make more of an effort to blog more often until the nice men in the white coats come back. Truly! Don’t hold your breath though, you’re likely to turn blue.”

I think it would be so much fun to just sit around thinking up posts like this. Wouldn’t that be cool and imaginative? Mad Lib Blogging!

Go ahead. You know you are curious! Try it! Who knows what you’ll come up with!
