Happy Love Day

Sooner or later we begin to understand that love is more than verses on valentines and romance in the movies. We begin to know that love is here and now, real and true, the most important thing in our lives. For love is the creator of our favorite memories and the foundation of our fondest dreams. Love is a promise that is always kept, a fortune that can never be spent, a seed that can flourish in even the most unlikely of places. And this radiance that never fades, this mysterious and magical joy, is the greatest treasure of all - one known only by those who love. (this quote collected from twopeasinabucket ).

Penquin Dinner

Bathing Benjamin

Isabelle just asked me... are you three? I said no. are you eight? No. Are you Old? (great way to start the morning).

I don't really have a lot to report, so Ill just ramble some misc. things a little bit: This winter has been bitter cold. I told Isabelle that if anyone stays out there too long they will turn into a snowman and she believes me. Now everytime lance is out there for a bit, she says, we better get him in, hes gonna turn into a snowman! Last weekend our water was out for two whole days. We thought something was maybe frozen, had to wait for the plumber (apparently they had a long list due to the coldness) but in the end it wound up being some parts for the pump. You forget how much you rely on things that we take advantage of everyday...such as water. I actually watched a whole football game (well pretty much a lot of it), the superbowl. It was kind of fun, but not super fun. Alot of down time. The commercials were very disappointing this year. Noah made a big turkey for the game. (I wanted to make fun appetizers and snacks but he wanted a turkey and he won). But, according to Isabelle we were having PENQUIN for dinner. So she helped daddy prepare the penquin and stuffing. I watched CASABLANCA for the first time in my life... I really enjoyed it and never realized how many "lines" that we hear and use are actually from that movie. Now, I want to go rent Gone With the Wind. Im so happy that I finally got one of those key chains that is a sharpie marker. I havent had the opportunity to use it yet, but just knowing that it is there is very exciting.

Here's a recent converstation between Isabelle and I :
Isabelle: I cant want to get married. (she says cant instead of dont)
Me: Do you even know what married means? Isabelle: Yes, you and Noah...(pause to think)'s over. Me: Tell me about it. Isabelle: I married Jimmy (school friend). Me: you did? Isabelle: Yes. Me: Why weren't daddy and I invited? Isabelle: Only Mary and Joseph.

I will leave you with one more Isabellism for now. This a little rambling of her brain recently. She just starts talking and her thoughts jump all over the place: Isabelle: My friends can't catch squirrel's right? I can't eat nuts either. I can just watch. There's a Giant Clock right? It's not Giant Clock yet. 2.5.6. Prince Charming will come to my party. Bring me presents right? Daddy's Pain in the Butt. He eat chex mix snack hot in oven.

Jesus Pizza

Typical day around here today...Isabelle is talking non-stop & taking out every toy that she owns....Benjamin is rolling around on his play gym and kicking away...Lancelot is chasing squirrels up trees and Im deciding which lovely task to perform next, dishes or laundry? Theres lots of both so which either one I pick , I guess Im a winner. February 1st. This day is cold. frigid. frosty. freezing. chilly. I was supposed to start a bible study today, which I really wanted to go to...but we were running so late this morning and I was totally unprepared and had many errands to run, so I skipped it. My Soul may suffer, but I'll try to make a better effort next time. Isabelle had super fun at school today. She made trailmix with her classmates (her favorite part). I got her valentines today ...I selected the Little Mermaid. I think I made the right choice (no, I am not making her valentine cards, Im crazy, but not that crazy..not at the moment any way). I searched today for materials for a project/job I am working on. It's wedding shower invites...and the format is a cute little folder with inserts. Color theme: Chocolate Brown & Pale it should be fun! The Office is on tonight. New Episode, so im looking forward to that. I think I will make enchildas for dinner...but maybe not. Im reading no good books lately...well unless you count One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.
Isabelle just came in here with one of Ben's burp clothes on her head...she said, "Im Baby Jesus, here's your pizza". She placed a potholder on my lap and walked out.
