Oh Isaac!

So, pretty much his life rotates around food. You might find that I write about this one quite a bit.  He's funny.  He is hyper.  He sometimes throws fits. He, of all my children, requires ALOT of my time.

Tonight after church, we just had a simple dinner of Tomato Soup and Grilled Cheese Sammies.  LOVE IT!  Well, I put Isaac's bowl in front of him and he said "What's this about, Mamma!"  As though this simple meal was just below him somehow.  He normally eats very well balance meals!  What is going on???????????

A lil' while later, he was walking around singing and Justus said "what are you singing?"  Isaac replys "I singing about Taco Bell!"  Of coarse!  Who doesn't on occasion roam the house singin' of making a run for the border?  C'mon! 


1. Are you a Black Friday shopper?   OH yeah!

What was your favorite childhood toy? (Think Easy Bake Oven, Cabbage Patch Kid, Shrinky Dinks, etc.)   Definitely Cabbage Patch kids!

Favorite Christmas movie?   Gonna have to go with Elf.

What is the "must have" item on your Christmas list this year?

A long robe.
Do you go all out with decorations or do you keep it simple and classy?  All out, no class, just lots of color!
My former Preacher and his wife and their little girl Emily.  What a blessing they have been to me!  They never gave up on me even in my DARK teenage years....sorry about all that Bro. Fielder!  :)

My lil' Iz and Ty sleeping with their favorite toys.  Such sweetness!


Thanksgiving Shopping....

Just got back from Wal~Mart supercenter with all four kids to do our Thanksgiving food shopping. $199 dollars!!!!!!!!!!!! Um, the turkey itself was only 10....how do I go about explaining this to my very frugal husband???? Ha! I just wanted to get on here and commend my lovely children. I got one of those carts with the blue seats on the front for the two babies and then Ben and Chloe stood on either side of me. And away we went. I was so proud of my kids. I said "don't talk to me, I need to think." And so they didn't...well, for the most part. Then we got home, and the three eldest got busy bringing in the load! I came in and checked the internet lest something majorly exciting happened....it didn't. But you never know. And then, we cleaned out the fridge, reloaded, unpacked, straightened the pantry, loaded the dishwasher and all the kids had the first candy cane of the season. I thought it would be appropriate since we bought Thanksgiving dinner today.....And so, off to bed soon, but first, I smell something....I think it might be Ty who is standing beside me. GREAT.



Wow, I have seen alot of tragedy and heartache lately. I wonder what lesson I am supposed to be learning from it? First, my Grandma died...which really, was a good thing. She had Alzheimers and lived in a care facility for the last couple of years. I am glad she is home in Heaven. Yesterday, after my Grandmother's funeral, my step-Dad had some kind of an attack....he is still in the hospital while the DR's decide what is going on. Last week at this time, I was totally hooked to the computer while another blogger was wondering if her little boy was going to live. He is almost the same age as my Ty and looks alot like him. All odds were against him, but Stellan hit a home run and is alive and well. And then I have another tragedy in my life, which is almost too painful to even talk about. Through this all, you have to wonder, why am I right in the middle of all of this? God didn't give me all these different circumstances for nothing, right? I wonder what I am supposed to learn through this? Maybe it's just simply to pray more for my loved ones. Our Preacher has been preaching on prayer the last couple of Wednesday nights and he said last week "stay close to God, you never know when you will NEED Him." Maybe that is my lesson. Or, as I look around here in the waiting room, waiting for Iz to come out of speech therapy, I see lots of hurting people. They don't necessarily know that I am hurting, but I have gotten a couple of smiles that did my heart good. So maybe the lesson is to "be kind to everyone because everyone is having a tough time." I do know that God has not left his throne, and He is trying to work in my life. I will allow it and almost relish in it knowing that He means it for GOOD. Though I can't see the good in it, He does.


A typical conversation between Mr. Speech Therapy boy and his Mamma...

Isaac ~ "Me hoongry."

Mamma ~ no Isaac, not me hungry, I'm hungry....

Isaac ~ No Mamma, you not hoongry, me hooongry!

Mamma ~ No, Isaac you don't say me, you say I...

Isaac ~ No Mamma, you not hooongry, me am.

Mamma ~ nevermind.


Latest Quotes from the Snow Children.....

Benjamin ~ age 8

Upon being told that we were going to the park after he cleaned his room:

"I love when I clean and it always ends up with a good idea!"

Chloe ~ age 6 (going on 30)

While sitting at a train stop watching a train go by:

Wow, this train is so loud!  It's so long!  It's so "circle~ish".

Isaac ~ upon waking up this morning, discovered that his tummy was a lil' upset, so I sit up in my bed to see my naked lil' man's booty running down the hallway with diarrhea shooting out (much like you would imagine a horse would look like!) all over the carpet.  His little head turning around looking at the mess he was making in utter awe while trying furiously to get to the toilet!!!!!!!!  "What happened Mamma?"

And our lil' Ty.....while he doesn't talk much, we dote on each lil' phrase he says.  Today while running from one end of the living room to the couch yelling "four!  GO!!!!!!!"  I don't know why the number four, but he's so cute it doesn't matter what he says.

And lest you are worrying about the upstairs carpeting, it's fine.  I cleaned it up right away.  And Isaac is fine too.


We have this beautiful old shack out in the field by our house and I have always wanted to do some pics of it.  These are the best I could get of the kids that day.  And our course our lil' Max.  He had to jump in there.

Here are my two little angel boys under the apple tree in the back yard.  Incidentally, this is the same apple tree that deers eat off of...so pretty.

The front of our house all decorated for fall, just in time to take it down for Christmas!!!!
