- I want to say the word "sometimes" like "sawmtwimes"

- At one time, I didn't understand what people meant when they said they wanted to "eat a baby with a spoon".  Then I had babies and I now fully understand.  They are just so munchable.  If you aren't a mother, please ignore me.

-  In my kitchen there are currently 7 dirty mixing bowls, 3 dirty pots, a dirty crockpot, 4 dirty baking pans & 3 dirty cookie sheets.  This all happened today.  After surveying my kitchen in stunned silence, I am now blogging about it.  I'll wash them...tomorrow.

- My goal is to get a bunch of December freezer meals and all my Christmas shopping finished before I go visit my sisters, brother-in-law and nephew.  When I return, I hope to relax a bit more and focus on the true meaning of Christmas.  With the materialism of the season, I usually tend to spend more time on the decorations, gifts, and coordinating wrapping paper than I do reflecting on the coming of Christ.  I want to change that forever.  You should join me!

- Since he has started army crawling, Brandt has beaten his sweet little head on all kinds of things and looks like he's been through a war.  He also has some pen marks on his face but I think that is a display of toddler sisterly affection.

- Tomorrow, I am going to an actual hair appointment for a hair cut.  I have never had a hair appointment before in my life.  I have only paid for one haircut as a walk-in and I got really nervous sitting in the chair.  Maybe it reminded me of the dentist...or something.

- Tomorrow, I am going to have a pedicure thanks to a dear friend's thoughtfulness.  Another thing I have never done in my life.  I'm just all about firsts tomorrow!

- Charissa likes to scribble on paper then strategically place stickers to cover all the scribbles.  I'm not sure what that is about.

- Last Friday, I went clothes shopping sans children thanks to my dear husband.  Everyone should buy second hand clothes.  The selection and prices are so much better - plus you're recycling and (usually) giving money to a good cause.  Like new skirt from the Gap - $3?  Red, wool sweater - $3?  Adorable black shoes - $3?  What could be better? 

- In my baking today, I used 10 sticks of butter. 

- Oh, and I just have to share... Doug and I got Chinese food on Friday night and my fortune cookie said: "You have a charming way with words and should write a book."  I got teary-eyed.  I hung it in the car with a Sonic sticker.  Because I'm classy like that.

- James 1:5 "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you," was the text on Sunday.  That verse has had a huge impact on my life.  God does give wisdom when asked for it.  It's not just about making decisions, it's about how we live our life.  I love the book of James :-)
