The Bible Book

I was at a MIA Team meeting and I was telling the ladies that Laney loves her "Bible book" as she calls it. She asks me everyday to read her Bible book to her. We started the new testament and I just happened to say Jesus time one night and now she has started saying it's Jesus time mommy... Ahhhh moments like these make my heart swell. So here is some info on the Bible book.

It's The Beginner's Bible by ZonderKidz

One Million Dollars

Have you ever thought about what you would do with One Million Dollars?

Lets just assume you walk away with one million after taxes...what would you do with it? Mr. Clean and I have similar dreams for the money but we don't agree on everything. For instance he wants 3 cars and I thought that is a little absurd since he can only drive one at a time anyway! He then saw the light and agreed with me and then narrowed it down to one but he would keep the car he has now too...since it's paid off.

Here is our list of dreams for the money:

pay off the house...or move to a slightly bigger one
set aside money for college
and set aside money for blessing people randomly
a new car for Mr. Clean
take a family vacation...the whole extended family
maybe if there is any left over...a new purse for me!

I know some people might think this is materialistic or worldly but we love to think of all the people who would be blessed by it. Sometimes we get really excited and start naming families in the church that we would bless and how we could pull it off anonymously. So our prayer is that we would be good stewards of the little money we have now so that when God blesses us financially... we are more than ready to handle it!

Arkman got a haircut

How often do you poop?

I was just wondering what the average is for pooping... this is TMI so if it offends you please read no further.

My family seems to poop a lot and I am told that we are healthy. I tend to poop at least twice a day and my kids poop after every meal and sometimes more. Now if you are wondering what made me think of this??? I am babysitting 2 kids this week and that makes 4 kids and one adult during the day. My house does not smell fresh...in fact my house reeks like a porta-potty!

when is enough enough?

I remember after I had Arkman that I asked someone..."how do you know when you're finished having babies?" I wanted 3 or 4 kids and Mr Clean was good with 2. Well 11 months later Mr Clean and I were taking a trip down to Ikea for some flooring...side note we paid 1.10 a square foot...flooring at Lowes and Home Depot...3.50 a square foot. Anywho... Mr Clean and I got stuck in horrible traffic because there was a truck that was hauling cars that caught on fire. They rerouted us on a side road but I am getting ahead of myself. Since we were stuck in all this traffic we decided to start praying... after prayiong for the truck driver and the clean up crew and everyone we knew... we decided to pray for our family. It went something like this...Lord, you know how many kids we can handle and how many you want to give us...so if we are done with 2 then change my heart and if you want us to have more than change Mr Clean's heart. Lord we want to be on the same page so make our hearts one with yours.

After praying for saftely we were on the little back road when all of a sudden we heard brakes screaching and then a loud crash. We thought someone got rearended but it was a head of us and a car was turning left and didn't see a car coming over the hill and they hit so hard it flipped one of the cars. So we were rerouted again.

After being in the car for almost 4 hours when it should have taken us an hour and a half... we were exhausted by the time we got home.

Well... 2 days later I began feeling like I was done having kids so I got excite dand went to tell Mr Clean that I was happy and content withthe two we had and I was done! Well... Mr Clean is now thinking he wants one or two more! I thought he was kidding me so I laughed but he was serious.

I was like Lord...did you hear us??? We wanted to be on the same page. This is not the same page... we have switched sides.

To this day we are still on a different page so we have just gave it to the Lord...We are NOT trying and if we were to get pregnant...it would totally be God because I am doing everything not to!
