Little Blessings

Good morning! It is Saturday morning and quiet in the house. I usually get up very early so that I may read my Bible and pray before all the chaos begins. By 7 o'clock our multi-generational household starts rockin'! Four little granddaughters, 10, 7, 4, and 20 months, dance and skip and talk their way through the day and into the evening. Home schooled children are always at HOME. That's the name of the game.

But I just wanted to share with any who would hear a few of the things that have happened this week:

Katie, our 4 year old, woke up the other morning and looked outside. She came running into the kitchen and proclaimed that it was "fuzzing" outside! No, not snow. It wasn't big enough for snow. It was "fuzz." Yesterday morning we awoke to what we told Katie was fuzz. She looked outside and said, "That's not fuzz; it's snowing!" And it was. We have had two "major" snows in 2 weeks here in Central Arkansas. We must have had a total of 3" of snow this year! Wow! Even the grandkids said they are ready for Spring. We just can't handle all this snow.

Maggie, the 20 month old, is being coached on manners by all who live here, grandparents, parents, sisters--even cousins when they come around. Some areas of success:

Yesterday, I asked her a question, and she said, "Uh-huh"--"Yes ma'am!" Oh, I am so proud of her.

Also, yesterday, she asked for ar-enge (phonetic spelling for orange). When I gave it to her, she said, "Thank you, Mama." She seems a little confused about who her mama is at this point. Now and then she even calls her big sister Mama. When there are 6 women in the same house, confusion reigns.

We're still having a little trouble with getting her to say, "No thank you" instead of "uh-uh." But it will come. Thank the Lord for small successes.

By the way, my friend at Prairie Flower Farm had a fun questionnaire for her ladies. I thought you might like to go over and look at her blog. She is a sweetie and always such an encouragement. Her button is on my sidebar. Just click and go!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

P.S. I'm having major computer issues. Just wanted you to know in case it has to go into the shop. Keys keep sticking. They are doing alright now, but it was giving me fits all night. Have a great weekend!
