Today Would Be a Good Day

The bathroom is clean, the kitchen is clean, the laundry is caught up (except for the three loads that are currently being worn), everyone is healthy, Dennis isn't hauling beets yet, and I went to the store yesterday. Today would be a good day for baby to come, don't YOU think so? I sure do...

Abram's Signs

Abram has learned only one sign so far.
He says he's "all done."

He thinks that's so funny...

Monday's Child

I need to update an old post since three more children have been born since then.

Do you remember that poem called "Monday's Child" ?

Three of our kids have been born on a Sunday: Isaiah, Christopher and Abram
Three have been born on a Monday: Andrew, Ruby, and Elizabeth
One on a Tuesday: Nathaniel
Two were born on a Thursday: Linnea and Elijah
and Ivy was born on a Friday.

I'm up in the middle of the night wondering what this baby will be?

Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace;
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go;
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for its living;
But the child that is born on the Sabbath day
Is bonny and blithe, and good and gay.

Bipper's 9th Birthday

Our Bipper has a birthday on 9/11.
He and I went to lunch that day, just him and me.
I am rarely one-on-one with the kids so this was extra special.
He was wanting something specific for his birthday from a sports store,
so we decided he should just pick it out.
We didn't find it in our price range at the sports store,
but we did find something at Target that he really liked just as well--
this shirt and some "sports" pants:
He also got Dispicable Me 2 which we watched together on the night of his birthday
with pizza and popcorn IN THE LIVING ROOM.

He had a great day!

For his "cake" he requested Special K bars.

Blowing out all NINE candles!

You Need to Try These

If you haven't tried these,
you need to.

Seriously.

I mean it.

They are sooooooooo good.


I had Linnea make some up and froze a bunch for snacks when the baby arrives.

Happy Birthday, Linnea

Happy 14th birthday to my horsey girl Linnea. 
You are a great help to me and I appreciate you. 
I love your honesty, your courage and your spunk.
(a picture of a picture, since Linnea was born before the digital age.)
Elizabeth has been wanting to wear a hat lately.
I don't wonder why.
