poor chubby birdie flew into the kids' bedroom window...Sherry, birdie was ok...just stunned and embarrassed because we made fun of it. "Uh, duh, there's a winder there! Go poop on my clean van, K??" (by the way, doesn't our mulch look snazzy??)
blurry sugar pie
um, what is this?
one of those reasons to hide your cam from your kids...isn't this the weirdest pic of Levi EVER?
who IS this kid?
Mel's having an identity crisis! she wants an afro!
classy. um, I was supposed to watch her in this evil contraption. She fell off and
hit her melon on the cabinet...not good. she was ticked!
Kinda aimless and far from cute (this post that is). But that's ok. Life is kinda like that right now. These pix have no theme...they are just some random shots from the past week!
Molly, poor thing, has cut her first tooth. It's not up yet but it has broken thru and is causing her some extreme misery. We are enjoying some of her brand of misery as well. She is not her usual self today, though she has tried. I was in the store tonight and she just looks so cute sitting up in the cart...looking around, taking it all in, being cute etc. A nice lady came up to us when we were walking out to tell me how sweet M. was, what beautiful eyes and how happy she was...I was surprised because she had not really been any of those things today. Puffed up peepers, runny nose and mouth, grumpaliciousness, fever...I guess she is just doing what I've always tried to teach my kids, and that is "get over yourself, smile, say HI, be happy, make eye contact, yada yada yada"... she really is a good kid.
The pic of my (very clean) van and the rocks in the back cup holder are just on here to remind myself that yes, at one point in time during this rainy spring, my van WAS clean...Levi is a holy, mess making terror right now. I'm glad, he is just so full of life but I had spent an entire afternoon cleaning, scrubbing, moving seats, disgusting myself with how doity our van had gotten...and came out to finish up, only to find this huge, dusty pile of driveway rocks packed so nicely in. ugh. (this is where I had meltdown..) so pardon my reminder. (slow news day! sorry)
go play a fun trick on a loved one. get a rise out of someone. then hug them and take them to dinner to make up for the heart attack you've just caused.
Ok, well, I need to finish the laundry folding marathon, and hit the hay...Hope you are having a lovely week! be back tomorrow!

Eric was the youth pastor at West Morris St. FM when we attended there a few years back. Carrie was his lovely helpmeet and consistently joyful chicklet. We started becoming friends with them right before they left our church...(waa waa) and moved back to Greenville, IL.
Carrie called me yesterday to tell me they would be in town for one of their past teen's weddings and they wanted to catch up. (I am so glad you called, Carrie). It was so great to see them and catch up. We hadn't seen them since before their last daughter, Emmy (which stands for A-DORA-BLE) was born 19 mos ago! They have Wyatt, who is 6, brown-eyed and dark olive skin like his momma, Sophia, 4, brown-eyed, dark olive skin again like her momma and Emmy, lighter hair, pretty light blue eyes and spittin' image of her dad (but prettier than you, Eric, of course :)).
And ya know what? They are moving out west (Colorado to be exact)! double waa waa. But it's a good thing. They are going to see where the Lord leads them and they have some good leads and good things are going to happen for these peeps. Ya know why? they are open to whatever the Lord would have for them. David and I have a new little saying for these lovelies..."The grass gets a little bit greener when the Jewett's are around." Good kids to tromp through this life serving Christ with! We love you guys! You make us want to be better servants!
They have a blog (yah!!)...check out their link in my buddies section! Keep these folks in your prayers too...lots of big changes on the horizon for them!
You guys rock. we are blessed to know you. Can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for you!

nut. but I do have to say, he has gotten quite good at
self-portraits. love the cheeks.
diggin' her new big girl seat!!
She graduated to her "big girl" seat this week...seems surreal that my last baby is almost 9 mos. old. mm mmm...slow down time!
We have a new nickname for her...the "human happy face"...she is such a joy and it really helps that she is deliciously adorable!
Just wanted to share a few pix of the baby...hope you all are doing well!
Up next: 4th installment of why you should hide your camera from your kids. really.

Gettin' some lovin' from Beck and I...
My nephew, Duncan, is doing a project with his first grade class in California. He sent this nearly life-sized (to a 5-year old) little guy to my parents. We are supposed to take him places, do things with him and document it all in photos...Mom passed the buck to me, knowing my somewhat obsessive nature and insane creativity (chuckle, laff). I got some pix of Stan with us at the mall, with my parents, in all of Molly's seats and such, etc. Now, we write a letter detailing Stanley's visit with us and what his manners were like and how he behaved.
We send Stan back to Cali, where Dunc's teacher will put up our pictures and post cards we sent...and they will report back to us how that went! ( I think )
But for now, we are out the door....2-3 crazy, crazy days ahead! visit with friends, Good Friday service, Boys' activity with the youth group tonight, spending the night with my maw and paw since I have to be back at the church at 7:45 a.m. (who gets up that early. ever???) to pick them up and they live less than 10 min. from said church, Mel's birthday visit with her friend, Maddie, cleaning for Easter here Sunday, Patria, etc etc...ahhhhh. I need a break! whew! I am choosing joy and feel privileged to be able to do all of these things, (warning: a little shout out: hear that David?? putting a smile on my old face and thank you for working so hard for us so we are able to do these things. And thanks also, while I'm at it, to the Lord, who provides for us in so many ways and for the blessings He gives)...Peace out and Happy Good Friday!

Yesterday was a crazy busy day...Wilson had a dental appt. so I figured while we were out, I could do all of my banking, errand running, to make it worthwhile..(David, you are getting to me!) No more useless running for this girl. hee hee. yeah right. That is one of D's biggest pet peeves about me...thinks I'm always on the go!
