It has been so long. . .

Time is passing by so fast. It has been so long since I have written anything anywhere about everything! Today on the way home from Church I was laughing so hard that I had tears. I need to start capturing these moments before I forget them all!
Abby said, "Mom, everybody laughed at me in Sunday School today." Charlie immediately started cracking up. I said, "Why was everyone laughing at you?". She got annoyed that Charlie was laughing again and she wouldn't tell me. Charlie said, "Mom, Miss Tara asked if anyone knew what lent was and Abby raised her hand and said, "It is the stuff between your toes!" That was definitely not meant to be fresh. At 4 and 1/2 years old those words were out of the mouth of a BABE!
When we got home and we were getting ready to eat lunch Charlie was teasing Abby about something not related to the earlier conversation about Lent and Abby yelled to him, "Stop it Charlie or you are going to make me BLOW MY BASKETS!"

I love this picture. . .

Abby can be very dramatic at times. Yesterday was one of those times and the rest of us were not in the mood. Charlie was definately not in the mood for the drama. After Abby was spoken to by me for carrying on, she asked me, "Mom when can we. . .(we refering to her and Charlie)". Charlie quickly interupted her and said, "Abby, no more WE, US, OUR! I do not want to be involved with your BADNESS!" Would you be able to keep a straight face after that?!?!?!?!?
We had a great vacation even though it rained the whole week. It is great to be home. And today was GREAT because the sun was shining!!!!

Out of the Mouths of Babes!

We were driving by the cemetary the other day and we went past a burial in progress. Charlie, in his usuall inquisitive voice said, "Mom, why do they bury dead people anyway?". I paused to think of an answer and Abby quickly piped up. "CHARLIE, (in her I can't believe you don't already know this voice) SO THEY CAN GROW BACK!"

We are having a great summer! I finally downloaded pictures today. We are getting ready to go on vacation so I wanted to have my cammera ready. As I looked through the pictures I was downloading I realized my kids are growing like the weeds in my garden. William has tuned into a little big boy. He loves splashing around in his pool more than anything!

A Belated Birthday Wish!

I have been feeling guilty because I never posted for my Abbygirl's Birthday!

You are smart, pretty, fun, funny, and so full of life! You have grown up so much in the past few months. You love to be helpful. You love to make people laugh. You love to take care of all of us! I hope that you will continue to grow with the same confidence. I love you so much. We are all so lucky to have you in our family! Have a great year!

Tonight I let Charlie stay up a little later than usual. Donald was working late and Abby and William were completely exhausted from playing outside. Sometimes it is nice to sneak in some alone time with each of the kids. I took this as the perfect opportunity to have some time with Charlie. He was happy to sit up and watch some Scooby-Doo. When the second episode came on he asked if he could stay up even longer to watch it. I said, "Sure". He said, "Thanks Mom". Then came Eddie Haskel out of no where! He said, "Mom, I love you so much. I love you almost as much as those Spider Man shirts you got me for my birthday." Well being his mother, I know how much he loves those shirts. Never did I think that being loved almost as much as a couple of shirts would be so good. I wonder if he will ever know how much I love him?!
