Kids say the darndest things!

>> Wednesday, September 7, 2011

I have just GOT to keep up with our family blog so I don't forget the hilarious things that Elijah says!

Today, we were walking through a parking lot and Elijah says, "Whoops, I just pooted."  I said, "Elijah, that's not nice to say."  He said, "Ok.  But it's ok if I just say 'I backfired.'"  I said, "I guess that's fine."  Now all afternoon he's said, "Whoops, I just backfired."

Believe it or not, he got that phrase from his Nana... :)


It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year...

Dear Santa, Thank you for my mommy...literally!

It's not every child who can say their Granddad is Santa Claus, *ahem* plays Santa Claus at the mall.  We certainly had a unique opportunity this weekend to get a personal encounter with the "Bearded Man" himself.  Here's our weekend in a few pictures:


Birthday Blessings

>> Wednesday, November 17, 2010

I can't believe I'm 29 today, but if it is indeed true then I'm so thankful to be married to THE BEST husband and have THE MOST PRECIOUS child.

When your son sings along with you as you sing a song to him that you've sung since he was born, you feel truly blessed on your birthday.

When your son says "prayers Mommy" before you put him to bed you remember what really matters on your birthday.

I am so thankful.  Motherhood has already made my birthdays different but in a wonderful way.

God is so gracious to have given me another year of life and to be a blessed daughter, sister, wife, and mom.


There's a first time for everything...

...but this may have been my first and last!

I am just not a baker.  Ugh.  I'm worn out from all the cookies I mixed, cut, and iced today.  I'm sure it's therapy for some but it just stresses me out for some reason.

Elijah has just loved all things pertaining to pumpkins and jack-o-lanterns, so I wanted to make some festive cookies!  So here are my pumpkin, apple, leaf, and acorn cookies.  (I realized too late that my pumpkin's face got smeared - whoops!)

We have an overabundance of iced sugar cookies at our house right now.  I gave some away, but not enough.  Good thing I'm not a huge fan because they are pretty yummy!

I am, however, excited about making some more Moravian cookies this Thanksgiving.  I think those are well worth the trouble!

In another note... Justin and I are off to Asheboro, NC to lead the music for a Secretary's conference for three days.  It will be weird, but we're leaving Elijah behind for the grandparents to spoil and we're spoiling ourself with some time away!


Pumpkin Fun!
