Facebook hacked

I was so tired yesterday afternoon, that I thought I would doze on the couch while the girls watched Daniel tiger on the PBS app on the iPad.  After the video was done, they (I suspect mollie) opened the Facebook app and proceeded to type in a bunch of gobbledie-gook.  An hour or so later I get a text from my best friend, saying my status was hysterical,  I hadn't been on Facebook since the morning and I rarely write anything hysterical (as you probably could guess).   Well, it was pretty funny.  I guess I need to sleep when the girls are in their bed or put in a DVD and not trust them with my iPad unsupervised. Lesson learned, lol.  The best part, was at the end where they typed .j

the purist

Oma made pancakes for all of us on Sunday morning.  She made plain, blueberry, and chocolate chip.  Opa said, "I like the plain ones, because I am a purist."  Mollie countered, "I like the chocolate chips one because I am a sweetest."  Needless to say, we all cracked up.  Blessings.

Betsy Boy

Betsy came to me after breakfast and announced, "My a boy with a mustache and beard."  Her face was covered in her chocolatey oatmeal.  She is quite a card.  Blessings.

pull ups

I have stopped putting Betsy in pull ups this week.  Oh my, we have had 3 accidents in 4 nights.  She had been waking up dry.  I guess she is not quite ready for the transition, even though I certainly am.  Oh well, I guess a pull up or two a day is more cost effective than a load of laundry.  She is also not going #2 on the potty either.  I guess we will go back in pull ups for bed and nap for a few more weeks and try again.  I remember potty training with Mollie was a challenge as well.  Blessings

Natural Bridge

Today was such a nice day.  Andy decided that we should go hiking.  We got a snack lunch ready and loaded the van for Red River Gorge.  We enjoyed the hike and the fabulous views.  Hope you were able to do something fun this weekend as well.  Blessings.

You would think I would know how to rotate pictures on here, but if they don't do it automatically I don't stand a chance.  :)  Maybe I will learn how to do that this year. Maybe.

Our internet connection is very spotty today. We are supposed to have someone come out to the house tomorrow to check it.  Hopefully, they will get here before lunch, but I'm not holding my breath.  When Andy called the service desk this morning, they kept offering to sell him upgrades and other services.  He was a little frustrated that they keep giving sales pitches on a technical call.  My guess is they make a lot of sales doing it, or they would stop.  I miss the fast internet.  Maybe we will have it back tomorrow.  Blessings.

Easy Bake

The girls love the Easy Bake App on the Ipad. I must say it is a pretty cute app and a good way for them to spend time taking turns making pretend cookies, cakes, cake pops, cupcakes and even pizzas.  Best of all the treats are calorie free. Blessings.

Left ear, right ear

Last night, Mollie woke up complaining about her left ear hurting.  What a night, both Andy and I were up several times with the girls. After a trip to the doctor, she is back on antibiotics.  Thankfully, our evening is free tonight. Hoping for a nap today and an early bedtime tonight.  Blessings.

Ear infection

Poor Betsy has an ear infection. I finally figured it out Sunday night when she tried to put her water bottle in her ear. Poor thing. She had a fever on Friday missing church, then she developed a cough on Saturday.  She complained of her nose hurting (it was irritated from blowing it so much). When asked what hurt though, she would point to her cheek.  Looking back, I am thinking she may have had an ear infection even then with the pain radiating to her face. I took her to the doctor on Monday and started on antibiotics. Thankfully, she seems much better. Hope you and your family are healthy this new year. Blessings.

the Sabbath

I was reading an article about the Sabbath yesterday. In thinking over my life, I realize that I don't take a Sabbath rest really. I think in this year, I will try to rest more.  There really is no reason the I can't grocery shop or run my errands on Saturday night or sometime else during the week. The article was challenging as well as encouraging.  Hope you find some way to include a Sabbath rest in your life this year.  Blessings.

clean house

Well, today I've managed to sweep, do laundry, wash the bathroom rugs, and clean the refrigerator.  By no means am I done cleaning the house, but I've got a good start for the new year.  I also have a Bible reading plan that I've started and I was able to exercise with my friend this morning.  Hope you are off to a good start on your resolutions as well.  Blessings.
