Some Visuals.

Life...in the parsonage.


Man it drives me nuts when half the string of lights goes out...why can't the whole thing just stop working?!? (Ben re-strung it for me, he's the best)

Jake's outfit choice earlier this week...shirt inside out and...

red pajama shorts over his jeans. Proof positive that one can carry off anything if they can project enough confidence.

Jake's not feeling so hot today...fever and cough have slowed him down considerably. I think it's gonna be a day of Spongebob Christmas DVD over and over...just like yesterday.
PS - I'm trying to get my husband to do a guest post on this little blog but he thinks no one will comment. I assured him how nice ya'll are and that even if he's boring you'll still give him some comment love...because I'm an encourager like that. My birthday is Tuesday. I think this would be a great thing for him to do on my birthday, right?!?

  2. I'm sure that Ben could do a great job of blogging. One idea could be "life in the Parsonage" with a blogger. It could be lots of fun. Or he could do something about his birthday girl. Arlona

  4. Ben should totally do a guest post for you! We will give him more feedback than his last sermon on Tithing! (Just kidding, I have not ever had the privilege of hearing your husband preach, but I am just taking a stab in the dark that he has preached about tithing. Don't all great pastors!)

    Don't you kinda feel happy and sad at the same time when your kids are going half speed? Hope he is better soon!

  5. Oh ya, Bens gotta do it for your birthday! My son came out of his room this morning with his shirt on inside out and backwards. He would've worn it all day like that.

  6. I crack up when we have some of the same ideas. For instance the Christmas cards with blog address included - AND the fabulous idea of a husband guest post. I have been holding out until my birthday in February - but now I will seem like a copy cat. :) I think it is a great idea. :) I think Ben will get bunches of comments. :)

  8. Your little boy is so cuted in his outfit. Maybe he's starting a new fashion trend! Tell your husband he must do this and we will be very nice and comment or he can start his own blog like my hubby did.

  9. I hear ya on the lights. Half of the ones I had wrapped around the porch went out....I simply wrapped MORE over the top! It looks horrible in the daylight...oh well!
    Come on Ben!! That would be a great birthday present! I, too, am trying to get my hubs to post. We shall see.

  10. I love when the boys get on the blog. Tell him to do it or we'll have to call him names. Peer pressure can be a very effective tool - even for a man of the cloth. haha! :)

  12. Check out my post today, there is a twin picture of Jesse. He's been like that all week!

    Ben will get bunches of comments, he already has. Who knows, some of us may even comment more than once because we can't remember if we verballized what we were thinking already or not. (i.e. Did I tell you I like your tie already?) I am a total ditz like that

  13. Ben def should post on your birthday... of course we will send some comment love!!

    Love the fashion statement. My kids do very similar things. I love the spirit of individuality, and hope they never outgrow the confidence to make their own statement.

  15. YES!!! He SHOULD.

    I love the outfit. Looks like something Miles would wear, and then go out in public in and wonder why people are pointing it out.

    Sorry about the sickness, that stinks.

  16. He should so do a guest post!!! On your birthday would be perfect...then he could say all kinds of nice things about you and tell us all how wonderful you are. And we would definitely comment!

    I love your boys outfit choice:)

  18. I have an ancient non-pre-lit tree, and I have to string on lights by hand....this year five entire strands were out. Drove me nuts, because I had to stop what I was doing and go to the store. :)

    Are you kidding...that would be awesome if your hubby would post. I KNOW he would get tons of comments.

    I'm a December birthday girl, too...21st...a little too close to Christmas if you ask me. :)
