Ten Things Tuesday

XBOX Wife Ten Things Tuesday

Ten Things Tuesday.....with the letter J, Andria did the letter K, which seemed like it would be really hard, so I am going to take on the letter J.

1. Joy, James, Josh, Jake - some of my favorite people have a J in their name.

2. Jello pudding, makes my yummy guilt free muffins

3. Java - I don't like the taste, but the smell is yummm.

4. Jackets - I am ready to bust out the jackets for fall.

5. Jonesboro - my refuge from the cotton fields.

6. Job - the fact that my husband has one that allows me to get to spend my days with my babies.

7. Junk - I am trying to purge and get rid of junk...a little at a time I am climbing the mountain of junk.

8. Joke - I heard a joke on TV last night and told it to Brian and he laughed, and laughed. I love to hear him laugh.

9. Jeep - my jeep is paid off....yeah!

10. Jeans - my jeans are quite a bit looser than they were earlier in the month...yeah!!!

My Sarah

I need to build this story up. First of all, Sarah broke her night light (she tends to be a little destructive at times). After she took it apart, the light bulb disappeared. Because this isn't the first time this has happened we used the last replacement light bulb a week ago. I bought some at the store today, but Brian forgot to reload the night light before he tucked them in. We had all three (yes, I said three) closet lights on, but they KNEW that night light wasn't plugged in. I gave it to Brian (so he could be the hero with the night light) to take to them to help calm the masses. Unfortunately, that didn't do it.

So I go in there and sit on the side of Sarah's bed trying to calm her down, since she has worked herself into a tizzy. I keep kissing her and rubbing her back and I finally told her to close her eyes. She looked up at me and with the most serious face she said, "I can't close my eyes, there are boogers in them".

My funny kids

I love my kids, I always read the funny things other people's kids say and I think....hmmmm, kids are funny.

Apparently, Mr. Kevin must have sang "I've got the love of Jesus in my heart" about 100 times on Sunday because Sarah has been singing it ever since. I think perhaps we need to ask Mr. Kevin for some clarification because this is the song my Sarah heard, "if the demil doesn't like he can (bad word) on a tag, (bad word) on a tag, Tuesday. Great song!!

Then I was looking at some bumps on Molly's arm and she said, "no, don't touch it". She got all upset and I said why, what is it? She turned me and said, "those are nipples, more nipples on my arm".

Here is a non related picture, but I thought I would post this for Works for me Wednesday. I was trying to get us packed and out the door the other day and I was trying very hard to do this with the girls awake...ugggg! Here are the ingredients for 45 minutes of free time for mom at the Stahl house:

2 plastic bowls
4 cups of water
water toys
2 towels

There you have it....in a pinch 45 minutes of entertainment.

First Day of Mothers Day Out

We had our first day of Mother's Day Out yesterday. I was anxious and excited all at the same time and the girls seemed to be indifferent. We got up and had breakfast talking all the while about school and how much fun it was going to be. I went to buckle Sarah in her car seat and she said, "I won't cry if you give me hugs and sugars before you leave me". How cute is that???

Of course I had everything ready except my memory card for my camera which walked off with a 3 year old the day before. Uggggg! I called Ms. Ash to the rescue, but had a VERY uncooperative Sarah so we tried again when I picked them up. Grandma to the rescue. Of course they aren't looking at the picture, but they had a good time, you can tell from the mussed hair and paint on their face.

My News

Hey to anyone still checking in with us. I don't know why I haven't been motivated to blog recently.

Brian made an observation the other day when I linked my blog to him to see some recent pictures I took of the girls. It occurred to me then that perhaps he was completely unaware of the blog. He said he read mine and then found my friends and linked to theirs, and then linked to other people he recognized. He was completely astounded about the blogging world and the way it all loops and loops and loops. Then he asked me about my time spent posting and reading. I told him I was not a faithful blogger, but I was a faithful reader and I could spend 20 minutes a day catching up with my friends. I felt the need to explain to him my need to know about first days of school and dance class, a poem from a friend about a lost pair of purple shoes, cousin camp, 80's crushes and of course one my favorites The Pioneer Woman and her life. I NEED to read these every day, just like most people need to read the paper or watch the news. Let's face it folks, this is my news outlet!

I found this while reading a blog today and I think I will have to add it to my must read list. I don't know why I think this is funny, but it really makes me laugh! Click here to see more pictures with funny captions.

Yes, that's right you blog addicts, I am giving you another blog to add to your list. Just call me an enabler.
