Ebay....I took a year off but now I'm back in full swing. It's a fun place to visit look around, sell, and shop. I enjoy selling more than purchasing. It's neat to see how high your auction will go and to watch people fight over an item you really don't care about. I've got only two items listed this week and they are both already higher than I expected (still four days left on each auction). It pays to purge those piles of clutter!

Andrew: "Mom, God never sleeps, right?"
me: "That's right. The Bible says that God never slumbers."
Andrew: "I know why he doesn't sleep."
me: "Really? Why?"
Andrew: "...'Cause he doesn't have a bed."

Abigail is cooing in her crib. She's starting to narrow her naps from three to two a day. Wow, I can't believe she's already 7.5 months old.
What am I going to cook for dinner....hmmmmm......wish I had some cauliflower like Becky so I could make some mashed taters. Kind of sounds weird but she and Jeremy said they thought it was a yummy recipe. Wonder how much cauliflower costs....never bought it before.
I went to the gym yesterday. I made it in time for the 5:30 step class but there wasn't a single spot available for me to stand! Ever since Gold's Gym bought out the local gym I belonged to, the classes are more packed, the treadmills are never empty, and the ellipticals are always in motion by others but me. So, I actually did my weight resistance routine yesterday b/c I had no other option. Gosh, I hate lifting weights. I'd much rather sweat by doing cardio. Oh well.....at least my arms
Now the boys are playing "dentist". Ok, enough rambling. I need to sit on the floor with the kids before someone accidentally extracts a tooth!

Anyway, here are a few other of my favorite Quiser quotes:
I'm not crazy, I've just been in a very bad mood for the past 40 years!
The only reason people are nice to me is because I have more money than God.
And my all time favorite Quiser quote from the movie:
Ouiser: Yes, Annelle, I pray! Well, I do! There, I said it, I hope you're satisfied.
Annelle: I suspected this all along!
Ouiser: Oh! Well don't you expect me to come to one of your churches or one of those tent-revivals with all those Bible-beaters doin' God-only-knows-what! They'd probably make me eat a live chicken!
Annelle: Not on your first visit!
Clairee: Very good, Annelle! You've spoken like a true smart-&%@!

We love our Valentine cards you sent in the mail to us today. Thank you for thinking of us individually and giving us our own special card each to keep forever. We sure do wish we could see you everyday but we hope we can see you soon so we can give you a big squeezy hug that we're so good at giving (not to mention slobbery kisses). We love you bunches, Gami!
Your littliest grandbabies,
Andrew, Luke, and Abigail
Howdie, Babe! Do you know how much I love you? So much, so much, so much, so much, so much! Every year of our marriage gets sweeter and sweeter. Although I am not always very lovable when you come home from work as I perform my motherly duties in "task mode" (peeling potatoes, browning beef, filling sippy cups, nursing a baby), I thank you for always wrapping your arms around me and planting a kiss on my lips. It may seem as if my mind is in another place (and it really is), but I remember your touch. For all those times when you've called me on the phone just to say hello and ask what I'm doing, I thank you. You are always eager to spend time with me and yet you always let me have the space I need to myself because you know I don't get very much of it during the day. If I had to buy the perfect gift to express my love to you, it would be stock in McDonald's sweet tea.....since I can't give that to you through this blog, do you wanna go there for dinner tonight (without the kids and no playground!)? Mitch, you are my best friend and I am so thankful the Lord put us together. I'm so happy to be your wife. Gosh, I love the snot out of you.

Andrew made his first visit to the dentist today. He got an excellent report....no cavitites! The dentist did say, however, that Andrew will one day wear braces since there's no space between his teeth for larger teeth to emerge. Better start saving for that now, I guess.
Abigail loves putting things in her mouth. I think this picture turned out pretty nice, despite the bib and slimy biscuit around her mouth.

Andrew liked peeling the paper off the crayons and Luke like breaking them. Go figure. I couldn't illustrate their personalities any better. Andrew is systematic and "by the book" while Luke is a free spirit, roaming where the wind blows. Andrew likes peace, order, and practicality. Luke likes to bite, hit, scream, dance, and jump. So, my two sons butted heads quite a bit during this craft activity but we managed to get it done. Notice that I'm sitting in the middle - lately it seems that all I've been saying is, "Are you choosing to obey or disobey? When you obey Mama then God is glorified". What I
Andrew and Luke are going to give these crayon hearts to their class for Valentines Day along with candy & their Harley Davidson cards (I knew you would like that touch, BB and Heidi). We really did have fun making these but I only let them make one tray of them. After that, I put them down for a nap and finished the next two batches by myself!

It's all fun and games until someone gets this thing stuck on their head.
Watermelon and cantelope are some of her favorites in this great food feeder.
1. I like to TiVo my favorite shows and then watch them in slow motion in spots - especially when they highlight the losers on American Idol. Their expressions of shock and dismay are priceless...I'm such a meany.
2. On a trip to visit family in Los Angeles, CA, I rode by OJ's house and also viewed the crime scene at Nicole's condo. Don't you wish you were me?
3. I cringe when people write the wrong word (homophone) in a sentence. Example: There/Their, to/too/two, plane/plain, whether/weather...you get the idea. I'll probably be eating my words one day when someone catches me making the same mistake in one of my many late night & early morning posts.
4. I love the feel of sateen sheets (not satin - totally different). I don't sleep well on any other type.
5. I don't enjoy watching movies multiple times except The Godfather trilogy (I love the mob), Sense & Sensibility (especially when Miss Dashwood starts hyperventilating upon realizing Edward didn't marry another after all), & Where The Heart Is ("I lied to you, Forney. I do love you."). However, I do like to flip the channels and catch a few minutes of any movie from the 80s: The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Some Kind of Wonderful, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Big, Can't Buy Me Love, When Harry Met Sally, Dirty Dancing, Mask, Footloose, Goonies, The Princess Bride, Raising Arizona....
Places I want to go in the USA:
1. Grand Canyon
2. Redwood National Forest
4. up the Eastern seaboard and stop at all the historical landmarks
5. Rocky Mountains
Places I want to go outside of the USA:
4. Canada (I'm so adventurous!)
I tag Mom, Libby, Amy S., Chrissy M. or Chad, Kat, & Angela Bonin.

This picture is specifically posted for Elaine and her cheesy bunch of teacher friends at Andrew's school. What a great group of educators! We love you all at Westminster!

Hawa-woo, Hawa-woo, Hawa-woo, Hawa-woo, Hawa-woo-wa
Pwaise we a Wor!
Hawa-woo, Hawa-woo, Hawa-woo, Hawa-woo, Hawa-woo-wa
Pwaise we a Wor!
Then, the other night in his room before bedtime, I saw him making some hand motions while singing a little something like this:
Got so much, much, much, much, much
so much, much, so much, so much
He is learning so many songs in school. It makes my heart feel good that his teachers are teaching him songs that praise our Father. So if you see us stopped at a red light making weird hand motions, we're probably singing a song led by our conductor, Luke.
