Something to laugh about

Kids say the cutest and funniest things sometimes. I love listening to my kids. They have a great imagination.

Recently during Bible time when I was asking for their prayer request here is what they said. Josiah said to pray for baby Hailee (an 18m old from our church that is in the hospital). Robert said to pray for a bigger van and for us to have more kids to fill it. He still wants a boy baby! Abby wanted to pray for everyone to have more babies. .

Later that day at lunch time I went around the table asking them what they wanted to plant in the garden next spring. Robert said, "Carrots and corn." Abby said, "I want peas and watermelon." Josiah quickly added, "Spam and eggs!"

Christmas photos

Beth was laying on the floor playing with someone's toy. She was very content just laying there on her back so I took her picture.We opened our presents on Christmas Eve. I helped the kids buy little gifts for each other. They had a lot of fun buying and wrapping gifts, and it gave me some one-on-one time with them. Grandma brought gifts the day after Christmas.We spent Christmas day with my sister and some friends in Colorado. Aunt Becky went sledding with the kids. Her husband drove the ATV and pulled the sled. Robert rode once, but Abby kept going over and over again. They finally bribed her to quit by telling her there was hot chocolate inside.It was very beautiful and snow covered there.

It may be a while before I blog again. I feel like I have nothing interesting to share and I should be busy with the kids and housework instead of wasting time on the computer.
