Empty Nest Syndrome

They've all grown up and flown away. I'm not sure if I was ready. Will they come back and visit?

Monday Musings...Pancake edition

When one is eating chocolate chip pancakes, how does one manage to get chocolate on the eyebrows?

I Saw a Little Birdie

A mother robin apparently thinks our back door light is a good place for a home for her little ones.

Tulsa has a ridiculous amount of birds. I have never seen so many birds in one area in my life. But, these little hatchlings are too cute. They stick their little heads up with their beaks open waiting for mama to bring a nice juicy something to eat. I only saw the mama bird once on the nest and I'm pretty sure she's a robin.

A Yard Sale and Mother's Day

The youth group for our church had a big yard sale on Saturday to raise money for the youth group to go on missions trips. They have a big trip coming up to Tennessee at the end of this month. They did a bake sale and car wash to go with it. They raised about $1800! I made about almost a hundred pretzels and two pound cakes.

Marsha, I hope you would be proud. (I didn't have any cute chocolate molds, so we just did sprinkles. However, they were dinosaur sprinkles.)

On Mother's Day (and for Fathers on Father's day) our church honors mother's with roses for those who are the oldest moms, youngest moms, moms who travelled the farthest that day, etc.

I keep winning the "Mom with the most children" catagory.

Who would've thought?

The kids spoiled me with some treasures from the yard sale and David took me to see Thor that afternoon, with ice cream at Braum's afterwards.

I had a blessed day.

Monday Musings

Thomas shouted from the back seat, “Mom! Tristan is sinning!”

I said, “What did he do?”

Thomas replied, “He has that thing and he won’t give it to me!”

Monday Musings

Bailey has such a sense of humor.

She’ll say something like, “Mom! Mom! Brittany coming! Just Joking.”
or “Mom! Mom! I drop a toy. Just joking.

She is so smart to figure out how to do that- a real little jokester.

She also has quite a sassy side to her. When I was talking to my sister in law she came up and said, “Aunt Cassandra, quite talking!”

But she is also very obedient and remorseful when she does something wrong. I said, “Bailey Caroline! That is hateful!” and she said, “Sorry Aunt Cassandra.”
