A Funny

picture Jared took at Starbucks of KA sitting across from him

So, Jared likes to take Kati Ann on "trips." These trips usually just involve a little getting out the house for 30 minutes or so to give me a little relief. Today, Jared told Kati Ann they were going on a "trip." She was quite excited (as usual). They headed to Starbuck's and had a little date together.
They got back in the car and
KA asked Jared: "Where are we going on our trip, Daddy?"
Jared: "Our trip was to Starbuck's"
KA: "Daddy, coffee is NOT a trip!"

Something Absolutely New

“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.”

I read this quote today and realized just how true it was. I knew my life would change when I had children but I don't think I realized how much I would change. Things that were important before just don't matter and things that I didn't think mattered that much are the most important things! I absolutely LOVE being a mother and can't believe how blessed I am with two amazing children. I love the "new" me that was born on May 1, 2007 and again on April 27, 2010.

On the way home from some friends,
Kati Ann asked me, "Mom, can I go see...Jesus?"
I asked her, "Where is Jesus, Kati Ann?"
Kati Ann responded with "At His house!" (In a "duh" tone of voice)

Jared & I looked at each other and really had nothing to say, that was a good answer!

Bobi Ann's Turtle Frosty

So, at VBS last week we got coupons for a free Frosty at Wendy's and so today KA and I went to get one on our way home for lunch to have for dessert. I decided to create my own Turtle Frosty with mine (Turtle Ice Cream is one of my favorites). I took my Frosty & added caramel syrup and pecans & enjoyed my own Turtle Frosty Creation. Quite frankly, it was just too good not to share!

7 Weeks of Adorableness

I don't know just how it happens so fast but my teeny tiny baby is growing. I look at him and try to envision the size he was when they handed him to me at the hospital and I just can't believe how much bigger he is! He's now in 3-6 month clothes. Kati Ann didn't move up sizes quite as fast and I can't believe just how quickly he is growing.
