these are a few of my favorite things

I guess this could also be called “Things I’m Grateful For”. Look up at your url address bar. :o)

1. My brother is doing School of the Bible this year.

Me, Katia & Nathan

He’s been wanting to do this school for at least six years, and I’ve been wanting to see him more often. It’s been a fun year so far.

2. Lily is somehow becoming cuter.

Lily & Piggawig

She has about twenty words and enunciates them like a university professor.

3. Playing outside with Bekah.

I’m not sure how long East Texas will cooperate, but Spring has been amazing. We’ve had a whole lot of digging and bug adventures. She also helps me garden.

The Funniest Things Bekah Said – 2012

January 2012


February 2012

We were sitting at the table eating lunch (Lily was having puffs) and I (Beth) thought Rebekah needed some extra attention so I began complimenting her. “It’s so nice to have you around all the time. You’re so considerate. You’re so pretty.” etc. At the first pause she said, “Tell me all about it, mom!”
My mini me =)

Bekah: Daddy’s being too paxtful.
Beth: Paxtful?
Bekah: La (Yeah).
Beth: I don’t know what that means. Do you have another word to explain it?
Bekah: It’s just a saying, Mom.
Beth: Oh. Ok.
Bekah: It’s when I’m needing a hug, and he hugs me.
Micah: Now I’m waxing eloquent. Bekah, can you say that?
Bekah: Waxing wacky-wonk!
“I used to bounce a ball when I was a kid…when I was three.”
“I don’t want to be re-ponsible.”
Later… “I need to go lay on my bed and just get my attitude better for a little bit, and then I’ll come back out.”

“Can I have some papet toiler?”
“That’s a lot of moises. That’s too many moises.” – about Lily who kept saying, “Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya.”

Bekah: I can’t hold her like a baby, because that doesn’t make sense!
