Ok, I’m not gonna lie. I’m a little proud of myself for coming up with this. In “researching” Valentine’s Day boxes for Noah, I found all kinds. They even had a Minion one from Despicable Me which was just awesome. I was ready to do that had he asked. Of all the ideas I put across to him, he wanted a Ninja Turtle box. There were no pictures of those!!! So this is what I came up with:

Pretty cool right? Wait til you see the back!

I had no idea it was going to turn out as good as it did. (What’ya think Grams?) Am I sounding a little boastful? Not intentionally! I promise, haha. I was surprised! All I had was some construction paper and crayons (and this cool triple tip marker that had three different browns on it…don’t know where it came from). So!! There he is. We’ll see if I’m able to top that next year. Who knows what cartoon or hero Noah will be into by then :). Here were his Valentines:

I mean, Penguins of Madagascar are cool and all, but I felt like they need a little *OOmph*. I can’t take credit for these though. They were a free printable from It’s Written on the Wall (Itswrittenonthewall.com).

A little bit of this….A little bit of that….

 

Sheen Anderson inspired me to write a blog today. 🙂 Thanks, Sheena! 🙂 And the inspiration for the title?…Wait for it…..Fiddler on the Roof! Yep, I can hear the song playing in my brain right now.

So… life has been happening and a lot!! While Dubs (the Hubs, haha) is working part time, ministering, taking school classes and spending time with the fam (busy man!), I keep kids, take mine to school, pick up more kids after school (it’s only six, including mine, but it feels like a lot sometimes!) try to keep a clean house (notice I said “try” :D), trying to eat healthy, and every couple hours at that!, exercise and keep up with W. It’s a lot. At least this morning it definitely felt like a lot! None of that is meant for me to sound whiny. I’m thankful that my hubby gives me time to exercise away from the kids when he gets home after working. I’m thankful that I’m able to stay at home with my kids and do what I’m meant to do. Suffice it to say that the enemy is always trying to edge his way into your life. This morning he definitely tried! Phil 4:8 says “whatever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely and of good report: if there be any virtue and praise (in these things) think on THEM! I felt pretty selfish this morning after being in such a terrible mood. I sat down and started thinking of my husband and the love he has for me and the patience (I mean, whoa!). The bad mood left. The Word ALWAYS stands true. Even thinking about the scripture (which is true, honest, pure and of good report and definitely full of virtue!) is better than thinking about myself! After speaking with my Daddy this morning and giving him my cares I felt loads better!

I would also just like say how proud I am of my husband! He was asked to preach last night and he delivered! Several people have said it was his best sermon yet and I agree! It’s been a blessing to see him grow spiritually and know that he is our spiritual leader. And he’s all mine 😀 I’m not always very good about remembering a sermon..or even most of one (no offense Bro. Jerrel :D) It’s not for lack of listening or paying attention. BUT I remember a good bit of his last night. 

I also learned how to make musical notes while typing, haha. It’s the small things, people. ♪ ♫ aren’t they cute? ♫ ♫ ♪ 

I’ve got lots of projects coming up! Finally brought all my sewing stuff upstairs (minus the shelf I need to paint). Once the desk is painted (which has already been brought upstairs because I’ll be getting a different one to paint) and the shelf, I’ll have a matching set! But while that’s waiting, I can start sewing some things so I’m pretty excited. Also going to be working on Valentines for the Noah boy today! They’re due tomorrow (nothing like waiting until the last minute!) At least I bought them a couple weeks ago, that’s a step in the right direction!

I haven’t forgotten about my Belize posts that I have left. I will be doing those soon as well! The life of a minister’s wife is never dull! And I’m pretty happy about that!

 

Here’s some photos of the little rascals today at lunch:

On the menu was grilled cheese 🙂 One of their favorites.

Jack let me take several pictures (big surprise there! haha). This was one of my favorites. Apparently he has a runny nose 🙂

And this little guy…he’s difficult to get a picture of sometimes. I had to be sneaky to get this one!! 

Thanks for reading, stay tuned 🙂
