Overheard just now - 4 children in den, 1 practicing piano in another room. The conversation turned to God and questions:
 Miss A: "Something I've always wanted to ask God is how he can see everything at the same time."
Mr. E:  "Well, don't bother writing a letter."
Mr. A:  "You can ask one day when you're dead. I mean, when you're in heaven." :)

Sayings...from the crew

  • While Mr. A was working in one of his school books this morning which required scissors and cutting, Miss Baby came over to see what he was up to:
    Mr. A: "Stay back! This is not for babies! Baby Ladies, that is." :)
  • Above the din of her siblings playing after lunch, Miss Baby is heard yelling: Autobots...roll out!! :)

Pick Me Up Bouquet - no flowers required!

Y'all have heard of the "pick-me-up bouquets" FTD, and other florists have available, right? Well, tonight, I received a "pick-me-up bouquet" that didn't involve flowers!

As I sat down to check schoolwork at the girls' table, I finished up one's work, then was feeling tired, thinking about how I'd like to go sit on the couch and rest, then my eyes fell on the table and a drawing...but the paper sticking out from under the edge was what really caught my was titled "Christmas List for Others" and had a list of names down the left hand side..... Thank you Lord for that pick me up! I am so blessed!
