Happy Tuesday Morning

Well I guess it's not morning anymore...but it's pretty close. I really had a great morning this morning. Things seemed to go as planned (although there was a brief episode of biting). The kids ate all their breakfast and put in a movie so mommy could do some devotions. I love doing my devos in the morning, but have found it rather hard to fit it in lately. Anyways, I was able to do a great devotional and even start reading a book. Cooper was entertaining himself for the first time in a while and Kylie was really enjoying sleeping beauty. At just the RIGHT moment, Kylie asked if we could go outside. SOOO..everyone went for a walk. Let me start by saying, I love where we live. The way the sun hits the hills in the morning is a present from God. I was able to think about some prayer requests while I walked and only had to break up one fight and pick up one flying shoe. Lunch went well and the kids went down for a nap and that is where I am now...

I don't want to bore you all with my pleasant morning but I need to remember these times when the kids are (ripping each other's heads off) misbehaving. SOOO along with this, I am making a list of enjoyable mommy moments I have had over the past week:

~Kylie saying during mealtime prayer, "Jesus, be MY faithful friend".

~ Kisses from Cooper...open mouth and all.

~Watching Kylie help Cooper with undoing his seatbelt and telling him, "Love you buddy boy"
~Picking "flowers" with Kylie at the park and bringing them home for a great bouquet

~The kids wanting to take a bath in the sink together

~Waking up to Cooper saying, "Too Too...Too Too" as his drove his hand along the top of the bed (translation, choo choo)...note: he was sitting on my head at the time.

I will try to add to this as I go this week...especially during those times when I feel like going to time out myself.

On another note...I FINALLY completed the curtains for the office...I will post pics soon.

My puter is broke :o(

Our computer has been acting up lately and not turning on properly and yesterday it decided to just not turn on. This being said, I am confined to the laptop and not able to download any pictures...so sorry.

I just want you all to check out this AWESOME blog . I am addicted to it and have learned SOOOO much from this crafty lady. I do need to give credit where credit is do and thank my dear friend Andrea for this addiction. She was the one who found this blog and stalks it herself. Anyways, this girl is amazing. She has two small children and manages to blog step by step directions on how to do her crafts. My new favorite is her recipe for a pistachio torte I will check it out and let you know what I think.

On another note, I have decided I would really LOVE a single cup coffee maker...you know, the ones you just put a pod in and hit, brew cup. No yucky grounds in your cup and no worries about measuring! My in-laws have one and have been gracious enough to let me make a few cups. I felt like I was at Starbucks drinking a delicious cup of strong coffee.

As I have said before...we have had a CRAZY CRAZY summer. This past weekend we were at a wedding in Rochester. It was great to see some people I haven't seen in a while and spend some time with the fam. Candice was in town too so we had a GREAT, CRAZY time! Thought I would post some pics for you all.
