A Three-Year-Old's Perception of Lip Balm

Posted by Gabrielle

I was putting on my lip balm before bed the other evening, and didn't realize it, but apparently Benaiah was watching me, because a little later, as Mommy was tucking him in for bed, he asked if he could have some "glue for his mouth too." :)
I'll teach him about the difference between lip balm and glue...And that our craft glue sticks are not something he should be applying to his mouth...

Jedidiah turns 9!!!

Posted by Gabrielle

Friday evening, we celebrated Jedidiah's ninth birthday! Yes, he really did turn nine on December 27th, but all of us were sick with colds and such, and it's no fun to celebrate a birthday then. So, we waited until we were better, and we're pretty much there!

Nine candles! Where has the time gone? Jedidiah, I remember when you were born. I pray you'll grow up to be a mighty man for God!

I apologize for my lack of posts lately. I've been very busy with a number of things, but I've also gotten back into crocheting and have a number of new creations I'll be sharing on my crafting blog soon!

An update to the Christmas post

Posted by Gabrielle

Seeing as my post about Christmas elicited several inquiries as to what I received for Christmas, I've retrieved pictures off a sibling's camera and have added to the post. So, check it out here to see what I received for Christmas! :)

I've realized it really is winter here, seeing we have a slight dusting of snow on the ground that fell over the past hour or so! Maybe there will be more!
