Articulate Crack-Up

Cadence is such a funny little thing. She just ran into me with a somewhat panicked look on her face. She said, "Mom, Serenity has something poking her in the eye. I asked her if I could look and she won't let me. She insulted me. She insulted me by not letting me see."

I replied while trying to keep a straight face, "she insulted you?"

To which Cadence said, "Do you know what that means?"

I smiled and said, "do YOU know what that means?"

"What does it mean, Mom?"

"It means she hurt your feelings."

Then she yelled, "YES, EXACTLY. She insulted me and Heavenly Father is watching her."

Luckily, it was made 'all better' by a kiss and a hug from mommy. I hope that solution keeps working for a good long time.

Make Lemonade

Most of us know the phrase, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Well, the girls and I made some lemonade yesterday. I got off work a little early to use some of Labor Day to do something fun as a family. I was melting from the 98 degree temperature outside, but since the AC at work was broken, it may have been hotter than that while I gave massages inside. So to cool off after I got home, we decided to go see "Stardust" at the movies. We were very excited. We got there with only five minutes to get our snacks and seats. THERE WERE NO SEATS! Mind you, the movie was NOT sold out. I guess not everyone was there honestly. Anyway, we were very disappointed as we went back to the ticket counter, still carrying our snacks already to go. The manager was very nice and asked if we would like to see a different movie AND she would give me our money back for "Stardust". The girls were not easily talked into it, they had their hearts set. So the manager told us if we saw "Mr. Bean's Holiday" we would get out in time to Still see "Stardust" at 7:00. COOL! So we made it a double feature, which was a first for the girls. Seems like people just don't get to do that much anymore. BTW, "Mr. Bean's Holiday" was fun. Serenity and especially Cadence thought it was weird that there was so little dialog. All three of us absolutely LOVED "Stardust" and it will definitely become part of our DVD collection. We recommend it highly.

First Attempt

Realizing that first attempts are rarely ones to merit attention, here is my first real blog entry. I have a myspace page and have played around a tiny bit with that, but I wanted to do something that was for my family, not just me. Plus I thoroughly enjoy reading the blogs of family and friends. I will give it a try and hopefully, every once in a while come up with something as clever and enjoyable as on their blogs. I have two amazing, beautiful daughters to help inspire me and to get material from. Wish me luck as I embark on this new adventure.

Big Hug,
