Chuting down the ladder

Today, after we were done with school, Lilla asked me to play Chutes and Ladders with her.

I said, “No, I need to start dinner now. Maybe daddy will play with you when he gets home.”
Her eyes welled up with tears and her lips starting quivering as she said, “I don’t want to play with Daddy, I want you to play Chutes and Ladders with me now.”

In that instant my heart broke.
And I broke out Chutes and Ladders.

Dinner, I knew, could wait a little longer…Lilla wanting to play games with me, well it just won’t.

How Many Kings?

Merry Christmas!

From our family to your, we wish you a
Merry Christmas
Very Happy New Year!

Wordless Wednesday – Walking Aids

Needed just a few words…
I messed my hip up pretty good last week. Been using these to stay off it. The girls thought they were hilarious to try out. Lilla said, “Look mom, I look like an old lady!”
Thanks, Lil.
To join in the wordless fun, go to


Today we celebrated 730 days with Ms. Anna Noelle.

We went to the children’s museum.

We built a bear…uh, I mean, reindeer.

We had spaghetti and cake with dear friends.

It was a good day.

Happy birthday baby!

Wordless Wednesday

2 years ago today…tomorrow is a BIG birthday!

Yesterday, at co-op

Lilla attends kindergarten once a week at a homeschool co-op. She goes in for two hours, does crafts, learns about things like worms and friends, sings some songs, eats a snack and comes home. She loves it.

We are fortunate it is a Christian based co-op and they often talk about Jesus and sing songs like Jesus loves me.
Yesterday they apparently talked about the Christmas story. You know, Mary, Joseph, Jesus, probably the Angel of the Lord too.
At some point they talked about Jesus birth.
Lilla thought that would be the appropriate time to inform the class, and I quote, “Jesus came out of Mary’s booty.”
Pray for me. Please.
