The other day, my sweet daughter showed me a post from this "Morse Madness" blog the other day!  I totally didn't even know this thing was even out there!!  Haha! 

I had to put three different passwords in to even figure out my login.  Yet, here I am. 

I am in the process of cooking dinner now, but I think I may give this blog some much needed TLC, and dust it off.  Could be fun, who knows=)

I think it's time to blog again!

What a rough time I've had getting this thing going!!

What I must say to anyone who may stumble upon this blog, I am not eloquent in my writing, although with a bit of consistent effort I will become better!

What if I actually became the writer I dream of becoming!?? I think it would be the Lord, for I have so far to go! Nonetheless, I desire to write in a way that perhaps will bring a bit of delight to others=) I love people, I just do!

Why God Made Moms...

Answers given by 2nd grade school children to the following questions:
Why did God make mothers?
1.  She's the only one who knows where the scotch tape is. 
2.  Mostly to clean the house.
3.  To help us out of there when we were getting born.

How did God make mothers?
1.  He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.
2.  Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.
3.  God made my mom just the same like he made me.  He just used bigger parts.

What ingredients are mothers made of?
1.  God makes mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything nice in the world and one dab of mean.
2.  They had to get their start from men's bones.  Then they mostly use string, I think.

Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom?
1.  We're related.
2.  God knew she likes me a lot more than other people's mom like me.

What kind of a little girl was your mom?
1.  My mom has always been my mom and none of that other stuff.
2.  I don't know because I wasn't there, but my guess would be pretty bossy.
3.  They say she used to be nice.

What did mom need to know about dad before she married him?
1.  His last name.
2.  She had to know his background.  Like is he a crook?  Does he get drunk on beer?
3.  Does he make at least $800 a year?  Did he say NO to drugs and YES to chores?

Why did your mom marry your dad?
1.  My dad makes the best spaghetti in the world.  And my mom eats a lot
2.  She got too old to do anything else with him.
3.  My grandma says that mom didn't have her thinking cap on.

Who's the boss at your house?
1.  Mom doesn't want to be boss, but she has to because dad's such a goof ball.
2.  Mom.  You can tell by room inspection.  She sees the stuff under the bed.
3.  I guess mom is, but only because she has a lot more to do than dad.

What's the difference between moms and dads?
1.  Moms work at work and work at home and dads just go to work at work.
2.  Moms know how to talk to teachers without scaring them.
3.  Dads are taller and stronger, but moms have all the real power 'cause that's who you got to ask if you want to sleep over at your friends.
4.  Moms have magic, they make you feel better without medicine.

What does your mom do in her spare time?
1.  Mothers don't do spare time.
2.  To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day long.

What would it take to make your mom perfect?
1.  On the inside she's already perfect.  Outside, I think some kind of plastic surgery.
2.  Diet.  You know, her hair.  I'd diet, maybe blue.

If you could change one thing about your mom, what would it be?
1.  She has this weird thing about me keeping my room clean.  I'd get rid of that.
2.  I'd make my mom smarter.  Then she would know it was my sister who did it not me.
3.  I would like for her to get rid of those invisible eyes on the back of her head.

What to do on a snowy Sunday when mom and dad are sick?

Here in Dallas, we have had the most marvelous weather!  It has been in the high 60's-70's for crying out loud!  However in one day the temps dropped and the wind kicked up and we had a SNOW STORM, 1-2 inches stuck to the ground and sitting on all the new budding plants...UGH!!  Don't get me wrong I love snow, but I have mentally changed seasons and I am ready for all the activities a normal spring in Dallas, TX brings...

We were not feeling well this morning and the wind was BLOWING and the temps way low, so we played hookie from church...I thought I would give you some snapshots of our day....

Fire in the fire place.....burning something from the garage...

My Clematis starting to grow...Oh how I hope the snow doesn't kill it off!!

My backyard view this morning...
My coffee =)
The beginnings of my Creamy Tomato Basil soup...
The very old camcorder plugged in for a fun family surprise...
The kids sitting on the couch awaiting the family videos...
 Our dog Chloe curled up in her spot...
All the videos we intend to watch and organize...

One of the spring projects we would like to tackle is to convert all these video's into DVD's.  How wonderful it will be to downsize this bulk and have all our family movies more accessible...

Later I plan on making some homemade icecream...

After a long week!!!

Saturday is upon us after the longest week!  You wouldn't think a vacation from school and a week to just do what you want would be long and never ending, those weeks seem to fly by, but not here in our home!  This week all of my kids flaws seemed to be present at the same time and because I was sleeping in and being lazy I didn't spend my morning quiet time regularly this week!  It was a serious recipe for disaster!  I do not recommend missing quiet times on day's you know you are going to be dealing with disciplinary issues and hosting 12 year old sleep overs!  My insecurities have been rearing and my patience has been non existent!  So needless to say, I am ready for my crazy schedule to resume!  I am ready for my alarm clock to go off and for me to get up and come down to spend time with the Lord and do the crazy day thing!  I am also about ready to give up my coffee fast!  I am SO ready!!  It has been so good for me, but I seriously love my coffee!!  I am surprised how easy it was to give it up, and I didn't know it was going to just be a fast, I thought it was forever, but I am really sensing it is over!  I think...

For today, we did a bit of spring cleaning, and in a few minutes I will head upstairs and clean my room...the boys are earning a movie for tonight by wiping all my blinds down, and vacuuming the car out.  Jaden and I will head to Dallas to check out a dance competition with my very dearest of dear friends.  After an emotional and defeated week I am excited it's over and I am so looking forward to Monday's arrival, for it is a perfect day to "start over"...

I will leave you with some photo's of the family...we had our pictures taken in Dec and I never posted them on here....

Love and many blessings,
