Just Dance!

Photo Collage Maker_d04Wbp

We're not a board game kind of family. We do play some board games, but we're more of a Let's find a good family show to watch bunch; but we're having a blast enjoying some pre-Christmas games dad picked up for family fun.  They've really gotten us off of our tushies! We recently got "Just Dance" by X-Box 360.  You don't know fun until you've tried it!  Why do I need my Turbo Fire physical ... [ Read More ]

The Blessing of Having a Full House

Having all of my children home (less one) means that our Little House is full again.  Yippee! This is the face of a full house… First: Dad using the sink and Jon shaving beside him while Angel admires herself? Next: Jon's in the lead and Dad shaves to his left while Josiah provides commentary? Last: Dad's in the sink, Jon shaves behind him, Angel is just having fun, and yes, even ... [ Read More ]

Autumn’s Movie

Autumn's Fun Film Cover

I just have to share this video that Autumn Joy made!  It's a hoot! Autumn is our residential producer and film maker.  Not sure what the difference is between the two and I haven’t the time or inclination to Google the difference.  All I know is that she is always behind the scenes filming and downloading apps to make and splice movies. She’s only 10 but she’s been at it for over a year, so I ... [ Read More ]

“Wives, submit yourselves to your husbands, as if fitting in the Lord.”  Colossians 3:18 Yesterday was our appointed day to reupholster our kitchen chairs.  Oh Joy!  (Not really, but it had to be done.  I'm talking yuk like you wouldn't believe.) As my hubby took out the fabric and used one seat cushion to begin making a template for the other 5 chairs, I sat looking on, with an ever ... [ Read More ]

Serving Your Husband

How well do you serve your husband? This is a topic I’ve struggled with and certainly a question I’ve asked myself before…but not for any good reason. I asked myself this because I’ve truly wondered if my attitude about intentionally NOT serving him was right.  Wondered about it so many times that I eventually began praying about it…simply asking God if my behavior was right, if it pleased ...

This is Christmas

LOVE came for Us… to give His life and to give us abundant life. Friday night I attended my second Christmas event of the season…my churches much anticipated annual Christmas Ladies Tea. This is an event that truly ministers to the heart of women.  The first time I attended, three years ago, I walked in and was rendered BREATHLESS.  I almost cried! (I might have.) The entire sanctuary ... [ Read More ]

Relax. Refresh. Read Aloud!

Yesterday, I woke up feeling physically exhausted from the previous days homeschool Christmas party.  I mean the level of fatigue I experienced was unreal.  I could tell it was time to start switching gears and kick-off our uber-relaxed December homeschool schedule.   Yay!! This month, we will be spending the majority of our “school” time reading aloud in our pj’s, snuggling on the couch in ... [ Read More ]

And the Winner is…

Autumn has competed for the last two years and has always taken home a prize in one of the three categories:  appearance, taste or creativity.  Her first year, she won in her age category for taste.  Last year she won for creativity.  Woo Hoo! This year we tried making the World's Easiest Christmas Candy Ever from ... [ Read More ]

Spa Treatment? Definitely!

Whew! I'm still recuperating from our Thanksgiving break. With three kids out of the home now (1 married, 1 college, 1 enlisted Marine), having them all home for thanksgiving was an EPIC experience for this Momma. When my little Angeleyes went off to college a year early this fall our home got really Q.U.I.E.T. (hear crickets chirping now). It was quite an adjustment. So our Thanksgiving ... [ Read More ]
