Proverbs 24:3-4

By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.

1 Peter 4:8- Prince Charming and Cinderella

Once upon a time, Cinderella met and married Prince Charming (P.C.) and they lived happily ever after....
Until one day....
Cinderella was tired of royal balls and did not not want to attend anymore.
The balls had become "less" in every way and it made poor Cinderella sad.
"I'm not going it's a waste of time,"
she declared stomping her glass slipper.

On her to-do list for the day:
Wash/Dry/Fold/Put away Clothes---Laundry
Strip/Wash/Make the Beds---5 total
(Their castle wasn't very big).
(Their castle seemed HUGE).

"I just don't have time,"
she further pleaded her case,
"ARG! What am I supposed to wear?!"

Cinderella stomped though the castle as she got ready for the ball.
She found wicked joy using her glass slippers to make as much "I'm angry noise" as possible.

She raised her voice to the little mice when they scurried around her feet,
"Sorry I can't play, your P.C. is making me get ready to go to the ball."

Cinderella had had enough.
"Tell me one good reason I should go!"
she yelled, her head in the royal closet.
"Because I said so,"
came the (irritatingly so) calm response from the kitchen.
And with that any hope of a fairy godmother disappeared.

Cinderella got ready and when she was finished, P.C. greeted her in the kitchen with a heaping plate of breakfast, lovingly prepared.
Eggs over easy, butter toast and bacon.
He gave her the once over and smiled,
"Wow, you look nice."

It was at that moment she didn't feel so much like a Princess
but a big, orange pumpkin instead.

1 Peter 4:8 NKJV
And above all things have fervent love for one another, for "love will cover a multitude of sins."

It takes a Prince's love to see a Princess when she is acting like a Pumpkin....
What are you today? Princess or pumpkin?

A little trip to the Zoo

Today was the D.A.Y !
We took off and went to the Zoo!
We walked and laughed and enjoyed each other.
Today was a day that I will forever hold on to. Time marches on, the kids will grow and go their own way, but today will forever be captured by these snapshots. I am constantly torn between the household duties, my teaching duties and my motherly duties, this is a DAY that I needed to remind me of the JOY that I find in my calling as a mother.

This is the day the Lord has made let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Jump It with Grandma!

Bubble Fun

I saw this great idea on another blog and just kinda passed by it.
Then the other day the kids were stir crazy and I decided to pull it from the back of my brain.

What you need:
Wash cloth
Water bottle
Rubber band
Bubble solution or homemade bubble solution

Cut the bottom of the water bottle. I cut the wash cloth into 4 sections and then used a rubber band to hold it on the bottom of the top half of the water bottle. Then just pour the bubble solution into a bowl, dip and slowly blow.

The kids LOVED it! ...Even Mommy had some fun.

Notice Krista's bubble feet! HA!
