How to Make My Scholars Smile

I love to see my children smile.  With 10 out of the 14 at home it can be challenging to keep smiles on their faces.  Not to mention the eight scholars who rather find anything to do except school. 

I  had to take Hubby to work today and needed to pick something up for lunch.  So I decided on veggie sandwiches.  Yep, it put a smile on their faces!  We all love, veggies but they can be so expensive.  Instead of using french bread I decided to use pita bread.  I use to buy pita bread all the delicious with sloppy joes.  (I don't remember the reason why I quit buying it, except maybe the expense of it.)

Anyway, when my "little elves" helped unload the groceries they wanted to know if it was lunch time! :-)  We demolished two orange peppers, one red and yellow pepper, one and a half cucumbers, 5 Roma tomatoes, which as not enough...what was I thinking?!?!  I
sliced  eight ounces of mushrooms--used only half, a half tray of alfalfa sprouts, and half of a small onion.  We used eight ounces of cheese of between cheddar and Monterey jack. I opened a new jar of mild pepper rings and there is less than half in the jar as I type.  We also used lettuce, homemade ranch dressing, and of course pita bread.  Son #5 ate FIVE pita halves!!!!

Mercy!  But it was worth it all to see their faces light up!  I have a great bunch of kiddos!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!

Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!

A Couple of Pictures

I have a couple of pictures to share.  Here is a picture of our newest grandbaby!

Introducing "Mildred Millie Maude".  No, that is NOT her name.  Let's just say when Son #2 and Daughter-in-law #2 decided on a name, before she was born, I would refer to her by her name-to-be.  Not once did anyone ever correct me that I was pronouncing it wrong until about 5 days before she was born.  Dear Son asked me to repeat  her name, not once, not twice, but three times before I realized he was "making fun" of the way I was pronouncing the name. He is not the only one who poked fun at me.  I guess I put the emphasis on the wrong syllable!  So, this ol' Mammi decided to come up with a name until I can either take speech lessons and learn to pronounce it, or a nick name!  {just a side note, Son is NOT impressed with my "name" for her.  oh well, life goes on!}

Here is a picture of 8 of our nesters, and "guard" dog, Lucy.  This was taken last night, October…
