Ordinary Days

They hardly last a week.

"No soupy items?"  That's my menu list for the week with a special request from Matthew.  Apparently I was a little too into "soupy items" the week before.  He always makes me laugh.

Jeff teaching a lesson.  I always run and hide when Jeff starts writing numbers on the chalkboard.

  1. Haha! Abbey is the BEST big sister ever! I know that infommercial...I believe it's called "Best bra ever!" My husband and I laugh at it all the time! And what are soupy items? I love soup this time of year...it's so easy and great on cold days! Matthew is funny though! Your ordinary days posts are always my favorite!

  2. Oh, Sarah! That baby is just so beautiful. Aren't they incredible? I do foster care and have taken care of many infants and it is always amazing to me to feel that special spirit that bring with them from the presence of God.

  8. Aren't clementines the best!! We've been going through them like crazy here, too! Love the ordinary days posts-my favorites, because most days are rather ordinary but can have profound effects on those experiencing them. Have a merry Christmas, Sarah. Your blogs help me a lot-give me good perspective and make me smile and even laugh out loud sometimes. Can't wait for 2013!

  19. My 2 year old little girl loves Janey's pictures. She always says "awwww(in the sweetest voice) that's a good baby." So you have a 2 year old fan who loves your baby. :)
