This and That

Yesterday my wonderful husband got up on our roof and bleached it! It was very dark and dirty and I have been asking him to do it for a while. No, not nagging, asking. heehee He also took JJ and Ben on the roof with him for a SHORT time. I tried not to be nervous about this.


BEFOREAFTER
Aunt Sheri sent a belated Christmas package (because she sent it home with her parents). The kids were so excited and JoJo had to help out too!
Aunt Sheri sent a book of paper airplanes! How cool! THANK YOU AUNT SHERI!

We went to Welcome my Grandparents to Florida for the winter and my cousin Greg was there with his children. My boys got along really well with their energetic Andy (who was never still enough to get a picture of)! Cheyenne (sp?) and Joanna were playinig together pretty nicely. Chad and Jenny were also there and their Mattthew fit right in with our rowdy bunch! Here is the sandbox that Brendan made for the kids for Christmas! They have already gotten hours of fun out of that thing! I love itOkay. so that is a little of what is happening down here in FL. Oh, and I did remember a quote that one of my children said, but you'll understand why. We were sitting around the table and (first of all, you have to know that one of the little sayings aroung our house is, "Why are you so cute?") all of the sudden, out of nowhere, Ben says, "Mama, why are you so beautiful?" I LOVE Ben! And all my cute kids!

GREAT IDEAS, NO TIME

Well, the Christmas and New Year's rush are over! I am really glad in a way, because here in FL the hustle and bustle of the season are accentuated by all the PEOPLE who are down from the North! It's a little crazy, to say the least.

I having been thinking lately of all the wonderful things I could be blogging about! I have some pretty great ideas, but no time. I don't know how you gals do it! So I decided to make a list of some of the things I would blog about if I had time. Here goes:

THINGS I WOULD BLOG ABOUT IF I HAD TIME:
1. All the zany things that happen at my house on a daily basis
2. The way the dirt collects in my house the minute I finish sweeping the floor(and all the other complaints I have about housekeeping with 4 small children)
3. The current projects I am undertaking (like the painting I just finished for the boys' room)
4. Some of the ways I have grown as a person since I am married.
5. Before and after pics of our house
6. The struggles of becoming a Biblical woman. (now that's a heavy one)
7. Reports on homeschooling
8. Quotes of my children (that I can never seem to remember)
9. The humorous and sometimes not so humorous things that my children do (Oh, that's pretty much like no.1)
10, The activities that we do with the youth

Ok, so now you can be relieved that I DON'T blog more often!
