Overheard in our home this week...

...from our four-year old daughter:

While getting dressed, “This makes me so crabby! I always do this!” (referring to pulling her clean undies on top of the pair of undies she should have taken off first!) And, poor sweetheart. It is a regular occurrence. She forgets often.

We were talking about Lucifer, how he used to be an angel but then was prideful and wanted to be greater and bigger and stronger than God so he was banished from heaven. She ponders this for a second, then says, “He would have to eat a LOT of food to get bigger than God.”

...from our two-year old son:

He was helping me at the table in the kitchen. He had added ingredients, mixed with the mixer, and kept asking if he could lick the beaters. I instead held out the spatula, and indicated he could lick that. He promptly moved forward and slurped off the end of the spatula. (Oops! I was thinking “licking” would entail- you know- him getting some on his finger and putting his finger into his mouth. Not so, apparently).

A bit later, he put the paper liners for the muffins in the muffin tin for me, and I filled them up. As I walked away, I called over my shoulder, “You can lick the bowl now.” A few seconds later I heard this: “But I don’t want to fall in, mommy.” I looked back towards the table and saw his head fully inside of the bowl- trying to get at a good angle to lick away!!! :)

...And since our 14-month old is not yet talking... a picture.

    Rebeca & Michelle-
    Thank you! Obviously I'm a bit biased, but I do think they are VERY cute! :)

    You are so kind to ask about Mark. Thank you. He is pretty discouraged;... feeling like his hands are not getting any better. We continue to hope and pray for healing. Me?
    I am a bit tuckered out! But my spirits are good. :)

    I am so happy you left a comment for me! :) Love all the exclamation points!!!!!! :) We can't wait to come visit you, too! Yippeeee! We're going to have such fun! :)

    Stacey, I have to admit I have visited your site a few times now and I just couldn't resist any longer from commenting...your kids are absolutely adorable! It has been fun getting to know you a bit better this way, however, you seem much nicer than what Michelle makes you out to be :) And fyi I am now a part of the blog community, my link is on Michelle's blog ( if your interested) it still needs some work, but it's getting there.
    I am really looking forward to meeting you this summer, and possibly "blogging" together!

    Carrie --Michelle's friend :)

    Thanks for visiting our site! And HA! I can tell you have the same sarcastic sense of humor that our dear mutual friend Michelle has... (I'm glad you think I am much nicer than Michelle has divulged! And, for that... thanks, Michelle!)
    I already checked out your site- very fun! I'm excited to visit again! And I'm excited to meet you and your sweet family this summer- I've heard so much about you I feel like I know you already (and ONLY wonderful things!)
    Take care,
