Just another day at school....

From time to time on that rare occasion, when necessary, the kids will get a spanking (usually with the wood spoon).  Morgan tends to be the one who responds best to this form of discipline.  So today she comes skipping in the house from school and hands me an activity book with a sticker and in a very matter of fact fashion tells me it's for daddy.  It reads, "Hands are not for Hitting."  They did this last year when Isaac was in Kindergarten.  Any time Isaac would get a spanking last year he would proclaim, "Hands are for loving and hugging, not for hitting."  It worked for him probably the first time.  Then we started to tell him that hands are also for disciplining!!!  Got to love their logic!

Rick proudly wore the sticker the rest of the day!

Little Giggles

Last night Rick and I woke up 3 different times to hear our little Morgan giggling in her sleep, and it wasn't just for a second or two, she would giggle for almost a full minute!  When we asked her this morning what she had dreamed about she told us "Mommy had a new baby boy!"  Of course, Rick and I found that one quite humorous as well!!!!!!!!

Kids say the darndest things....

Morgan:  "I wasn't born to wear jeans!" - the girl cannot stand jeans, "they're not pretty enough!" Only skirts, dresses, and slacks for her.

Luke:  amidst chaos - "I don't know what's happening!"  "What you fink about dat,"  stalling tactic - "Just 2 minutes!" When he really does not want to do something he will simply say, "Next Saturday," which according to him never comes.  I don't know why, it's not like we've ever used that one on him.....

Isaac:  "Stop freakin' out" - somehow that's usually geared towards me or Morgan.

"This little guy can sleep"

From birth, Luke has been able to sleep anywhere, anytime, anyplace, in any condition.  If he is tired enough he will just close his eyes and go to sleep.  Doesn't matter if he is in the middle of eating with food in his mouth, playing with a friend, on the ceramic tile, in the middle of sucking on a lollipop, playing a video game, riding on a tube on the back of a boat, in the middle of playing in the nursery, or on the potty.  He just doesn't care, he will sleep anywhere!

We even get to have a little fun with it sometimes.  He went from peacefully sleeping on my shoulder here at 6 Flags over Georgia to

waking up belted in on this crazy roller coaster ride.
  I never laughed so hard in all my life!  You should have seen the sheer look of horror on his face!  I know we're pretty cruel parents to amuse ourselves in such a way!  But he got over it pretty quickly once the ride was over and he was able to breathe again!  And I think he kind of had a good time!?!?

Well, I guess I can see where he gets it from!

Bath time for the Pigs!

The kids really look forward to this form of animal cruelty, I mean nurturing experience of bathing their pets!  No stinky pets!

Not real sure what Luke was doing in this picture.  However, I do know he wasn't having a tantrum.  For he too likes to terrorize, I mean bathe the animals!

Child Labor

You know those jobs that we just really don't like to do but that have to be done every so often.....  I'm sure glad my kids enjoy doing them!

(she must have really been feeling like Cinderella that day.....)

Thank you Luke and Morgan!


There's nothing like a good "puzzle night" to occupy your time when it's cold outside!  Our family enjoys putting puzzles together.  It's fun to see everyone working together and having a good time! 

Dad and Isaac had fun putting together this 100 pc. puzzle

And Morgan and Luke had fun putting together this alphabet puzzle


I think we're now ready to take on the 1,000 pc. set!?!?!
