Funny....


While driving in the car Connor loves to read all the billboards. As he was reading them aloud he came to one that advertised "30 Beers on Tap". Immediately he said wow mommy, that's alot. We couldn't get those right now, could we? I explained daddy and I don't drink and why. He kept asking more questions and at one point asked me what "drunk" was. I told him that's when someone acts like a looney bird. He said "Oh now I know why I act like a looney bird it's because I drink root beer!" LOL!

We had homemade onion rings the other night for dinner. The next day for lunch Gabi kept asking for onion ears. For the life of me I couldn't figure out what in the world she was asking for. Then it hit me...she calls onion rings onion ears because they remind her of big hoop earrings. Gotta love my girly girl! LOL!

After the all day rain showers I allowed the kids to go outside in the mud and slop for a bit to get some pent up energy out. Kyalynn kept telling me to come outside she wanted to show me something. She opened her hand and said "look mommy, sally-co-manders." And sure enough, she had not one but 2 salamanders in her hands. A mommy and a baby she told me. :) Oh my I could eat her up! LOL!

And last but not least my little Nolan. He is a riot but his most recent funny was when he gives me a kiss and says it's his brown sugar for me. Awww.....:)

Samuel doesn't say much yet but he loves to mimic. So his funny is yesterday Nolan woke from nap and kept coughing. Samuel decided since Nolan was getting lots of attention and kisses he should try it. Soon he began fake coughing and then waiting for his kiss too. Of course I complied. LOL!

Oh and I have to add one more funny. Sean took the garbage down last night and he allowed Kyalynn and Nolan to go with him. He had no idea that Kyalynn had the 2 salamanders in her hands. When they came home she was upset because she couldn't find 1 of them and Sean was upset because he now realized he had a "pet" in his truck. His face was hysterical. :)

However, this morning I wasn't laughing when Kyalynn showed me the bag she had her pet worm in and he no longer was in there. Apparently, Mr. Worm decided being in a baggie wasn't his idea of a good time and decided to find new digs....somewhere in my living room. So, if you come to visit just watch where you sit. LOL!!

I loved reading these stories! Your kids are so hilarious and cute! Adorable picture, too.

We had lost worms in the house, too, after I discovered that J had a worm farm under his bed! :)

Funny about the worm. Still I think pet worms are better than pet bees. :)

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 



She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us every.single.day sometimes every.minute.of.every.day that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
