Face book throughout the year, comments

We found Abby late last night, curled up in the hallway on tile piled with clean laundry from a a basket that needed to be put away, sleeping her little head off. She was right when she said she didn't want to go to bed, I thought I heard coughing in the hallway last night. :) so cute. Nov 2009

Can you believe I made rice crispy treats for the first time in my whole life?? 36 years and this was the first time. :) very easy they looked hard for some reason, why haven't I done this before? Nov 2009

Great Value Quick Grits for breakfast..... Semola de maiz de coccion rapida. :) Enriched white hominy. Kids in the back ground begging, momma make grits hurry I want breakfast!! Nov 2009

Had the best night, took my Nettie on a mommie daughter date to Ethiopian fund raising dinner, it was as always very good, met some very nice people. Although I missed the speaker, former Prime Minister of Ethiopia I totally support what he is doing. Nov 29 2009

A case for life, we just don't know and this life is not in our hands, in the instance of this baby that was not supposed to survive birth, yet his mom carried him anyway and now he has surpassed all expections. Abortion isn't the answer there is a greater social/faith issue. Nov 2009

mash potatos are done, cranberries are boiling and now I have to find bathing suites as Aunti Pam has heated the pool!!! love living in AZ. Nov 26

Shannon Doherty, Renee Zelwiger, and me are all getting visibly "older" I remember 90210? when did this happen? Nov 25 2009

caution gross things about to be shared. You know you homeschool when your daughter discovers that her scab is starting to come of in the middle of roman history and tells everyone that she has a good idea for a science project...... you can guess.... then makes the innocent observation that it looks like beef jerky. ...

Load up on vit D, get your vitamins, take coconut oil and Menuka honey and get healthy. The future virus that are mutating from the H1N1 are bad, vaccines won't help you, in the Ukraine there is a H5N1 that is spreading and nobody is even talking about it. Just did some resarch, regardless it doesn't hurt to be healthy. Nov 24 2009

Abby is six years old tomorrow. Ya, why does she still feel the need to eat dog food??? Anyone, insight?? I do feed her. Nov 24 2009

Facebook comments

Laws of nature have been broken. Both Gary and I are sick with two kids verging on sick. Normally only one parent, if any at all are supposed to be sick. What's up with that? Dec 2009

Abby "OH YA I am the first one to find Chicken in my chicken soup, look look a piece of chicken!, oh wait that is just a noodle." said of Campbells "chicken" noodle soup. needless to say we made our own with tons of chicken. Dec 31 2009

Abby just looked at me longing and said "mom you are perfect, no other mom is like you, no other mom knows so much about God and healthy eating, there is no mom like you and I love you" Dec 26 2009

I know it was a lot to ask so much of you but doubt is a luxery we can't afford now, you are stronger than you think you are. "Incredibles" :) the one who doubts is like a wave tossed to and fro in the ocean,...James 1 Dec 2009

Gary is playing bop it with niece he is trying hard to beat my score of 89, ahahhah never, but then again he does fly 757's and he says that is cooler than bop it. then why do I hear him playing the game?????

sin will take you further than you ever thought you would go but Jesus our saviour will take you further than you ever thought you could go. Trust in him today, Trust Trust Trust. Dec 2009

Abby came running from her bedroom and said "mom Nettie is licking the jam off her toes and she is not even eating the toast!" do I want to know about her "toe jam" ? probably not. Dec 21 2009

Judah said that he likes his name Judah becuause it means the LION of JUDAH and lions can take down anything, then after a few seconds of thinking he said he wishes his name could be THE T REX OF JUDAH. Dec 2009

bby went on a date with Daddy, she really wanted to go to Food City because she never saw the inside of it. I am on the computer and she runs in and says "surrender or die" and she is pointing a stick at me,when I finally looked over she threatening me with a sugar cane bigger than her. Go figure Food City carries whole sugar canes. Dec 10 2009

Judah "I got a nose so I guess I'll pick it". should be a bumper sticker if you ask me. Dec 10 2009

Abby thinks she lives in a hotel, she asked me "Mom when will breakfast be served?" and the other day she told me she would like to order three pairs of matching socks. Dec 7 2009

Abby asked me for grits for breakfast, grits for a snack, and just now again she said she sure was craving some grits but whatever would be fine for her. dec 2009

Gary found a cheeseburger outside that has been sitting for quite some time out doors (don't ask) , looks the same as when it was purchased, the funny thing is that no bugs or birds or cats or any living thing even attempted to eat the meaty treat for the week it sat outside on our wall. Why are we eating it? Dec 3 2009

Survived Christmas

I did it. I survived Christmas. Every year I say that I am not going to get "into" it, but every year like this sinus infection I am currently dealing with, I get "into" it. Allbeit late, sorry haven't gotten cards out yet and my Christmas tree is now a fire hazard in my living room.

It was a good Christmas, busy as usual. For some reason I was unable to get my act together and that is the first time in many years that I have found myself scrambling at Christmas. I swear time is going faster than usual and I am feeling the effects of it.

New Year was uneventful, I don't even know if Gary was home. I can't even remember what I did or why all of sudden my computer is writing in italic? oh well. The kids had fun and that is all that counts. We are back onto homeschool and trying to just find the swing of things again.

I am grateful for each day I have with my family, every moment that passes is a moment owned, the rest just feels borrowed as time is moving faster and faster. It was just yesterday Mason was watching Jeff Corwin and Abby was wearing cloth diapers. We were waiting for Judah to come home, the anticipation this time four years ago was unbearable. Now in just a few days he will have been with us for four years! Sometimes it feels like I missed those years, they just disappeared under a mountain of diapers and screaming kids, demanding my attention. I know there had to be moments of quiet in the last four years but I can't seem to recall. I guess that is why I keep this blog to remember all the times the good and the bad. Life changed drastically when we adopted and I am glad for it.

Well I shall post a few pictures of Christmas and move on because as I speak one child has fallen asleep on the couch and three others are off being way to quiet and you all know what that means.
