Here are my men with their new haircuts! I did all three of them, no ears were lopped off and no blood was drawn, I am so proud and they are very happy. I saved over $40 yesterday in my backyard!
So far this morning I have baked two pans of brownies and 55 chocolate chip cookies. In addition, I was up early to see my husband off to work, had my quiet time, got dressed, fed the boys, took pictures of said children and cleaned the kitchen. Do I qualify for the Army? Or do I have to have my rifle cleaned and inspected first?
I wanted to bake for our trip to N.C. The boys like to have baked goods and the store bought stuff never compares to mine. It will be so nice to pop open the tupperware and have chocolate chip cookies while sitting on the beach! Oh, I can't wait!!
While I was at the women's retreat, Kevin had to teach his bible study on Saturday morning so my sister graciously watched my boys. She was telling me about a conversation that she had with John. A couple years ago my parents took the boys to the movies and there were a group of teenagers there who were cursing very loudly. My mother said something and the unruly hoodlums said something right back. My dad was there and quelled the situation, thankfully! So Laurie was telling me that she and John were talking about that episode. The conversation went something like this:
Laurie: Were you afraid the kids were going to beat you up?
Laurie: Were you afraid the kids were going to beat Grandma up?
John: No, besides, Grandma knows all about kickboxing.
We about died laughing! Laurie said to me, "He thinks mommy is a Ninja!" My mom takes kickboxing classes at the gym, so in John's mind, she is an expert at Martial Arts!
Kevin was telling me that on Saturday night the boys were at our neighbors house jumping on the trampoline and he heard Jeremy singing, "Ring around the rosie, pocket full of... bullets!" I would love to know the thoughts that continually run through Jeremy's head to make him turn a nursery rhyme into a tale of bloody mayhem! Kevin said he could not stop laughing. Mind you now, we do not liberally dispense firearms to our children, that's just how Jeremy's funny mind works.
Time for school, I hear the bell!
