There's No Place Like Home...

HE settles the childless woman in her home
as a happy mother of children.
Praise the LORD.
~Psalm 113:9~

Everday, and that's just the kitchen floor!

Hannah girl.

Ann practicing her reading.

I thought Mary was thru this phase, but yet again, I hear the children yelling that "Poo is in the toilet" and I yell back "flush it!" and they yell back "we can't, it's too big".  WHAT?!?  So I come to investigate, and lo and behold, Poo is in the toilet.  I brought Mary to the toilet and chewed her out and then gave Poo a thorough washing in the laundry machine.  I swear.

We only clear off the dining table to eat, other than that, I quit fighting this battle.

My sister in law sent this set of Kinects. 
It kept the boys busy for 6 hours straight on a Friday night. 
They are such builders!!

David buttoning Mary back up after she kept ripping this onesy open. 
I threw it away an hour later after her 4th time popping it open.  

I am always getting special art.  The kids are real good about drawing my favorite scene:  my dream of a small house on a river with a boat.  Trees and hills too.
Ann drew this one.

Kale sauted in butter and garlic.  The kids didn't go for it, come to think of it, neither did Paul.
Owell, more for me.


We had a great weekend full of friends.  Elijah got to invite 2 friends over to spend the night. David was invited to a sleepover and then an all day birthday party.  Saturday evening we, along with another family, were invited over to a family's house for dinner that I've been to before (kids too), but this time we got the hubby's together too.   Sunday was  full of a great Chapel service and then I took Elijah for a date to the movies to see Diary of A Whimpy Kid (he's read the whole series) while David had a monumental moment in his life.... Paul and him watched Star Wars 3 together.  David has been waiting so long to see it.  PG-13 movies are RARE for the kids (I think they've seen 2 others).  The girls watched Anastasia on the computer.  Elijah and I got home before Star Wars was over so we walked to our shopping center and putzed around, and shared some orange chicken on the way home.  Of course, it was Sunday, so I had lots of catching up to do around the house since I'm at the Center on Fridays (Paul does the kids)  and party all day on Saturday ;). 

It's Monday morning and I'm already in over my head, but I love being busy with so many good things.

Oh my gosh! I loved the "Poo" story. That is TOO funny! Glad you wrote that one down.

Looks like everyone is doing well. So nice to see a peak of what your family has been up to :)
