Merry Monday

#2 asked me the other day, "Mom, is teleporting really real?"
I said, "No, it is just pretend"
#2 said, "No sir, it is real, Jesus teleports"
I laughed and said, "No, he doesn't"
Then he said, "Well how does he get from one place to another?"
I thought about how to answer, and then told him he would have to ask Dad.
Who knows? maybe Jesus does teleport

Growing up in Idaho, I had the idea that moral/smart people were all Republican, and the democrats ranged from confused to corrupt. Then I moved to Minnesota and found out that all most everyone here was Democrat. Most are not confused or corrupt. Most are good, kind-hearted, intelligent people. This made me wonder, how can all of these good people have such opposing opinions?
As the elections come up, I would encourage all of you to be careful and respectful. It is wonderful that you have opinions. I appreciate those opinions as long as they don't fall along the lines of "mud'slinging". I hate to think that an election may be won or lost on viral clips of human error.
I guess because I come from a farming community, my advice would be- you reap what you sow, and so do the candidates. You can handle debates of politics respectfully. There is no need to prove your point by making another look bad. I say this to our candidates, and to all of you who are thinking about forwarding emails to me prior to the 2012 Elections.

As a side note I met a communist the other day. A good woman fighting for the rights of people everywhere.

Terrific Tuesday

Today is Terrific! You know why? Because I get to stay home with my kids all day. I have no appointments. I have no projects. I have no babysitting. All I have to do is stay home with my babies in this warm house. All I have to do is kiss, hug, hold, and clean. I am the luckiest mom in the world on this terrific Tuesday.
Why is today terrific for you?

Merry Monday

The other day #3 got hurt on the trampoline. I went over to him and asked if he needed a kiss. He said, "It hurts here", pointing to his knee. So I kissed it. "It hurts here", pointing to his nose. So I kissed it. Then he got a silly little look on his face and said, "It hurts here," and pointed to his lips.
What a cute little stinker!

Merry Monday

Here is another funny story from our family book.
18 months ago
Hubbin said to #4, "This is a phone, can you say phone?"
#4 was holding a car, so he holds it up, shows it to Hubbin and says "Tar".
Hubbin says, "Phone, say Phone"
#4 says "tar say tar"
Hubbin says, "f,f,f,f,f, phone"
#4 says, "f,f,f,f,f,f, TAR"

Merry Monday to you!

Workin' Wednesday

I will finish removing the wall paper in the bathroom this week, and paint- Should I put up wainscoting? The end goal is something similar to this. My bathroom is not this big, but I do love the little pedestal sink, the mirror flat against the wall, and the subtle hint of blue, with white and silver accessories.
I just found a super great idea- for storage above the shower! Brilliant!

Have you seen these? I love them! This is such a great idea! Really any basket or box screwed to the wall is cool!

What are you working on this week?

Terrific Tuesday

Catching On?
Yep I am trying to start a theme here.
OK, so today is another terrific Tuesday. What is so special about it? You may be asking yourself this very question. Well, tonight is IKEA night! On Tuesdays at IKEA, kids eat free. So, every Tuesday night we go to IKEA, feed the kids, check them into the free 1 hour babysitting, buy 4 hotdogs and 2 sodas-for $4 and have a date. If we choose to, we walk around the store, but usually we just sit in the cafeteria and talk.
Thank you IKEA for feeding my family of 7 for $4 and providing free babysitting for date night. Love YA!
A few more terrific things
fall colored leaves
little boys in sweaters
long sleeved onsies
warm blankets
In God We Trust (restored)

plan B for date night

Why will your Tuesday be so terrific today?
