25 Random Things

I did this 25 Random Things list for my facebook page but thought I would post it here. Since typing it up I've thought of quite a few other random things about me but you probably don't want to know that much about me. :)

1) I am 5' 8" in case you were wondering...

2) Since I have had children I am addicted to chocolate, it wasn't like that before.

3) I love to wear hats.

4) I love to bake! Experimenting, making things I see in pictures and changing them to organic is a favorite past time.

5) I love to sew, all sorts of things.

6) I love making wedding cakes. Each one is unique and fun!

7) I play the flute and piano but not very well.

8) I love listening to my husband play his trumpet.

9) I am the only blue eyed child in my family. But all my children have blue eyes, it helps their Daddy has blue eyes too.

10) I think I have ugly feet.

11) I hardly ever wear flip flops, partially because the aforementioned comment.

12) I love shoes and have way too many pairs but I do make sure to wear all of them and I have been a good girl and have not bought myself a new pair in almost a year.

13) I love having friends over for dinner or going over for dinner.

14) I freaked out when my husband had me drive the company box truck somewhere but then it didn't turn out to be as bad as I had feared.

15) I think I would cry if I was ever pulled over by a policeman.

16) When I am not pregnant I still consider myself overweight.

17) I can't stand the way my husband reads news stories, watches youtube clips or movies. I am grateful we don't have TV or he would be a channel surfer and it would drive me nuts!

18) Even if it's a stupid news story or movie I have to see the whole thing, I can't watch just part of it. I have gotten better though where I don't have to see the whole thing at once .

19) Blue is my favorite color.

20) I have had all my children at home and hope to have many more.

21) With the Lord's strength I hope to greatly improve in the wife and mothering department where I am lacking so much.

22) The Air Force Base where I was born in Homestead, FL was destroyed by Hurricane Andrew in 1992.

23) Everything about dogs is stinky, dirty, yucky, etc. Multiple that by my 115lb menstrating English Mastiff and you get how I feel. I "love" her because I know she is such good protection but cats are so much cleaner. :)

24) I have worn contacts for 14 years and glasses for another 4 before that.

25) I think it would be neat to have twins (shhh don't tell Sharon) I don't how that would work out. My parents didn't have any and they were the generation that should have had them since my grandmother is a twin.

Have I mentioned...

...that I extrememely dislike the fact that new corningware cannot be put on the stove? Growing up all my mother's collection could and when Charles and I got married he had some older ones too. We received some new ones too as wedding gifts and they all got mixed together. I did not remember to check if this was a new one or an old before I put it on the stove...makes heating up leftovers for lunch a little more complicated when you go to pick it up off the burner to serve it up and the top pulls off in your hand and you have to pop the base off the burner with a metal spatula. Oh well, life is full of little happenings like these, isn't it? Or am I the only one who experiences them?! ;)

guess I need to learn how to read...

Random Pics from December

Not anything too blog worthy to post about recently so I thought I would just put a few odd pics just to have an update. :)

My big blue-eyed baby girl...

...loves to dress up.

And often has the assistance of siblings to stay dressed up. :)

Before bathtime one day, Mercy has been really enjoying books, this is where she snuck off to.

Charis having fun in one of our little red cars, don't ask how many we've collected.

This was before I was even showing that she did this. ;)

Devotion time with daddy one night.

My little sharpshooter.


Totally bumming around the house and picking up or putting on whatever she found.

Totally awesome dude...or should I say dudette? ;)

Hope your weeks are all going well. Ta ta for now! :)

A visit

During Christmas time the Schmidt's came up and visited us one afternoon. Mercy was a little anti-social but the other children did great. I only grabbed a couple of pics and my camera was doing weird stuff too.

Ella & Mercy, "Why are you taking our picture?"
"We are ready for food!"

Can we get a picture of 6 little munchkins on the couch?

They are definitely silly little monkeys...
Okay, smile...
I think they actually all looked at the camera! :)

We're a cute bunch.

Wonder when they are going to let us get down. ;)

Suzanna & Charis

I LOVE this picture. :)

The babies for now.

Ella couldn't figure out why Mercy was fussing.

What do they want us to do?

Charis wanted to give Ella a hug. :)

Hi, we're the same size. :)

We had such a fun time, thank y'all for coming!
