I hate to send a kid to bed hungry.
my children have never been truly hungry,
I don’t like for them to go to bed with even the littlest pang.
don’t like to go to bed hungry.
When I do
I wake up in the middle of the night
On the other hand
it’s rather frustrating to hear
after I’ve just said,
Just like I can’t judge their hearts and their motives,
I can’t judge their bellies.
I’m hungry - even after I’ve
Do I just get snookered?
Would Jesus send them to bed hungry?
Should I just be a drill sergeant?
would it really hurt them to go to bed hungry once in awhile?
Am I encouraging disobedience
or am I exemplifying patience & kindness?
Will they forever disrespect me because I’m stupid
and play their game night after night?

this video is kinda long
probably no one but family will care to watch it...
We sure are thankful for our little girl!!
(and all our other helpers, too!)
speaking of our little girl....
she sure loves her Bubs!
all three little ones ended up in our room.
They all happen to be in varying degrees of sickness, too.
LilyPie had an especially rough night
(as did her momma...)
so I wasn't quite prepared for her
to be her usual happy self when she woke up.
But, she was.
She woke up, crawled over me and saw the boys.
Her face lit up.
she didn't get a response,
so she got louder,
"good morning, Josiah!"
I wish you could her all the inflection in her sweet little voice.
I hope I can still hear that voice in my head in 50 years!

but I did.
And I'm so proud of them!
They all did a super job!!

We were going to buy

Lana & Luke graciously offered to come stay with the kids.
took them up on the offer!
Tony & Brandon do great with the little ones
to be completely honest
they can be a huge handful sometimes.
lots of times…..
Most of the time…..
I wouldn’t have been at all comfortable leaving them overnight
without an adult and transportation in the event of an emergency.
The last time we got away for our anniversary
was two years ago.
I was newly pregnant with Lily
And Josiah went with us, since he wasn’t weaned yet.
I can’t seem to remember any further back than that right now.
All I know is
it was really nice to go away
with my husband!
If you are ever in Tulsa
and don’t mind spending a bit on dinner
You have got to go to Las Cabos
Just consider yourself warned: it might be a bit loud
Love you all.
I love you, Tyler!
Thanks for marrying me

I havent' been baking up a storm
This has been a big week for LilyPie!!
She is now completely weaned and she’s figured out
that there ain't much point to waking up during the night
She's a walker!
we love you so much, LilyPie!
Thank-you, Lord, for our baby girl!!
