Martha finally pulling her own weight around here with her first home improvement project!


Ok, well, Daddy helped a little. Her eyesight’s not that great yet.

There Was An Old Woman At The Parsonage

When I was just 5 years old my aunt gave this pillow to me. There was no way any of us would have known back then just how prophetic this was.



Dear Santa

Wednesday, December 24th, 2014


Every year our school has the kids write letters to Santa. I still don’t understand why the school makes Santa such a priority but here we are.

I do enjoy reading what my babies write. It gives me and Phil and good laugh. Lily so practical, Gerhardt all boy (who doesn’t have even one motorcycle btw) and then Clara, overflowing, on and on, thoughtful and taking advantage of the opportunity to ask for everything her heart desires. I can’t wait for my glass turkey. (Hers was the longest in the entire school I’ll add.)


The Things They Say

Forgive the Cheez-It teeth.


How can you tell if your baby is German?

Esther: Open die fridge. Put die milk back in.

Esther: I can’t reach it!
Mama: What are you reaching for?
Esther: Die fan.


Clara: “Mama did you know we have a crack in our booty?”
Mama: “Yes!”
Clara: “That’s how God made it. And He made our eyes and our ears and our mouth and our nose and our hair and our head. But I made my bracelet.”


Lily: Was this kitchen all Daddy’s before you got married?
Mama: Yep.
Lily: And was there not a lot of food in it? Did all you see was Macaroni and Spaghetti when you came?
Mama: Ha!

Lily: I wish I liked more foods. Then I wouldn’t complain about it.
Mama: :(
