Knock, Knock

Baby girl talks so much and makes us laugh every day, she says everything and so clearly. She tells me, "I can't, " what under 2 year old says I can't?!
She has started telling knock knock jokes now. "Knock, knock?"
"Who's there?"
"Mommy."
"Mommy who?"
"Daddy!!"
LOL, how cute is that?

Darn, this blogger says it automatically saves now, but even though I pressed 'save now', it didn't save the rest of my post:(

Now i am drawing a blank on the other cute things I was gonna talk about, lol.

Big happenings in our house this past weekend. Our eldest went to his first YC! Made Daddy pretty nostalgic, first that we have a kid old enough to go to YC, lol! Secondly about our own experiences there as young people. Life changing experiences with God and in the company of thousands of other kids who want to serve Him too. So thankful that our son got to take part in such an amazing event. He loved all the concerts, especially Toby Mac. Brent loved Toby Mac as a part of DC talk when he was young, he saw them in concert when they were first starting out. He and I attended a DC talk concert at the Butterdome as one of our first real dates-life is sure cyclical:)

Refocusing

Terrible blogger, it had been weeks-seems like the crazier my life gets the less I find to write. Hard to make myself slow down and take stock, and I really need to. I have let myself fill my time with things that are not high on my long term priority list.
Top of the list: God, my husband, my children, my family, my friends. Maybe I need to write that out one hundred times to help it sink back into my brain, lol. How I have been filling my time? being busy. busy accomplishing nothing really. Filling my mind and days with 'stuff' most of it not contributing to the master plan.
Time to refocus on my family, actively teaching my children every day, with a plan and goals in mind. Time to get my house in order, organizing and purging to make it all more manageable. Time to research and plan out the next school year. Time to focus on my marriage and make it centered on God, learning to communicate with my husband in an effective way. Mostly it is time for me to focus on God, spending time with him each day and seeking his direction for my life, I have felt a little lost the last few months and I know it is because I have been going full steam ahead without listening for his voice, without even any real plan of my own.
I want to stop running blindly into the darkness, without his light to guide me. God please meet me here and lead me where you want me to go.

happy mother's day

Oh my goodness, what comes out of the mouths of my children!
Monkey boy(3) just said, "My penis is big." Trying not to laugh, Daddy asked why he said that. Monkey says, "Because I am gonna grow to be big like you Dad, and my penis get big!"
I was gonna post something else cute he said today, but the penis thing tops it, lol.
All weekend he has been saying, "Happy Mother's Day, Mommy!" Still saying it a few times a day:)
This morning he says it, and I say, "Thank you sweetie, love you." Monkey says, "I am almost run out of Happy Mother's Day mom, I will have to make some more." What a cutie!
