Mo Mor Mon!

I miss blogging. It helps me remember the day to day stuff that I don't want to forget.

So here's a nugget for today:

We had dinner at a house that had a trampoline. Once Hope got it to herself, she was saying "Mo mor Mon!" as she bounced...

Translation: No More Monkeys jumping on the bed!

Occasionally she asks to be put in her crib, and she holds onto the railing and jumps her little heart out, saying Mo Mor Mon! as she jumps.

Henry's gift to his teacher a story he wrote. Considering how much he likes to write (not much!) it is a definite gift from the heart!

Mrs. F and the big, bad teddy bare

One time a gigantick bear attacked math cituy and Earth!
O.K. Here's how it started.
Astronouts found a teddy land ad started kating teddy bears from teddyland. The king of teddy land got mad . he siad "send the giant teddy bear to shrink and grow when he gets to earth." (drawing of king talking to the super-sized teddy bear)

(Next page: drawing of super-sized teddy bear, being attacked by Star Wars ships. speech bubbles with "it's nasty!" "we're dommed" "It looks like a teacher will save us!" with a caped, small teacher in the corner)

After the evle (evil) teddy bare went to Earth!

Then Mrs. F uses her superpowers to blas the big bad tett bere back to his home plant, teddy land. (Drawing of people cheering and the bear flying from earth to his home planet).

Happy Birthday, Harmony!

Harmony turned 6 on Friday. How can it be six years already? She's a beautiful girl--not because of her appearance, but because of her heart. She finds joy in everything, and she's got a giving and prayerful heart. She's the one who most often wonders about our Compassion children, wondering how Leidy spent her birthday on Wednesday, praying that they'll have a good day, wondering what time it is where they live. She was insistent that she wanted things to send to Haiti instead of gifts for herself for her birthday party.

We celebrated on Friday by joining Mammaw and Pappaw at Chuck E Cheese.

On Sunday we had a joint party with her birthday buddy, Emi, at the pool.

She not only got some fun things for herself, she also received 102 items to send to an orphanage in Haiti!

Hope and Wags

Hope LOVES the Wiggles, especially Wags. She carries around the DVD case (when she can find it), points to the TV and begs until either we succeed in distracting her or she gets to watch it!

My OCD daughter...

I think it's just they way toddlers are, but Hope is completely obsessed right now with:
--washing her hands (we did it for most of the plane ride to Fargo (this was pre-"bathroom bomber")
--brushing her teeth
--putting on lotion
--having her hair put in pigtails (she really doesn't have enough hair to do them, though!)

Jeanne Robertson "Don't send a man to the grocery store!"

A friend shared this and it made me laugh out loud :)

Wordless Wednesday: Pizzas, prizes and pies night

Congrats, Henry, for selling enough Cub Scout popcorn to get to throw a pie in your leader's face!
