The Son is always shining, regardless of the weather

Am I a Godly Mother?

The other day, I was reminded of a conversation I had overheard Michelle and Paige having when they were 7 and 6. Michelle said, “Paige, do we have a godly mother?” My child-examined (and now self-examined) heart was crying out: “…Lord, help me…I am really trying here, ” Then, Michelle continued, “You know…like Jake (our […]

My dad…Vice President…Cool!

My mom and dad came for a visit this past weekend. We had a great time! I love it when we sit around and tell old stories. I sure laugh a lot! We try to solve the world’s problems…and that’s pretty funny too! One of the reasons I blog is to record these funny stories […]

The Solution that was a Solution for the Accident that was an Accident!

Eureka! I have some unbelievably good news. The silly putty (click link to view previous post) was able to come out! I was seriously thinking about throwing the blanket away, when Kane (and Google) suggested I give germ gel a try. Well, it seemed believable because it had alcohol in it. However, the only thing […]

The “You’re Momma” moment:

A few weeks ago, I realized I was a mom (not in the literal sense…I have birthed six children…but rather in the figurative sense). Here’s the scenario: I went around the house taking everyone’s temperature (not because this is a favorite pastime…they all felt warm to me). No temperatures. All were dubbed “relatively normal”. Then […]

Time Flies

Posted under Arts and Crafts, LOL, Those Are The Breaks! - Sep 27th, 08 - No Comments

My baby is turning six in a little over a week (what is wrong with this sentence?)! Where does the time go? Does it really fly? I recently was cleaning out my jewelry box, and I found six broken watches (…why I still had them is a mystery). Well, in my corny mind (and hesitant-to-throw-anything-away […]

Our Late-Breaking News!

A little over two weeks ago (on Sunday 9-07-08), we came home to find the temperature very warm inside our home…our air conditioner had “frozen up”. I was so thankful Bc knew how to remedy this (two hair dryers melted away the ice that had formed on our system). I was very thankful to have […]

Thundering Waters

It was dark outside, the children were in bed, and I was ready to “call it a night” (or do you say “call it a day”?). I had six precious children under the age of nine, and I was tired. I loved my job as mom (and still do). I also loved what little sleep […]

Obstacles of the day

Today was one of those days we decided to really clean and declutter our house. The problem was we were having company over for dinner. No, that wasn’t the problem, maybe the motivation. The problem was deciding to do this on the same day company was coming! We started cleaning up early on, and spent […]

What’s wrong with this picture?

I decided I should probably weigh in after a wonderful vacation with lots of food, and very little exercise. Where is that old scale, anyway? There it is…in the laundry room, under the mound of laundry from our trip. Well, here it comes…the moment of truth. What!…I weigh less than I have in many years? […]

Watch your door!

Yesterday was a nice day. I love bc, and we have enjoyed our time together (see Second Honeymoon). He was so sweet in his blog. He didn’t mention the fact that my door swung open and hit another car. I had opened my door , then BC opened his, and this wind rushed right through […]
