Too Much Ketchup

Lately my blogging has been like banging ketchup from a glass bottle. But you gotta deal with the blogging blob on your plate, I guess! (Dad Fry is a faithful reader and keeps reminding me that I'm neglecting my blog.)

I thought of a couple more stories I have to share before I disappear into a world of primer and paint once again....

PARTY FOR TWO
The other Day Kayla was creeping around here, working on some kind of secret project that I couldn't see yet. She hung baloons and wrote notes. Then she "suprised" me with a big party in the kitchen - just for me. We pretended to eat and she made me a new card because she had lost the old one. It said
"Mommy I love."
As we enjoyed our party for two, she told me....
"I wanted to do this to celebrate how wonderful you are."
And she told me...."You're the one who did this, because you make me so happy."

It was one of those moments she has when she's literally brimming over with love and it spills out all over those around her. Priceless.

MEMORIES WITH GRANDMA
I forgot to mention that my hilarious Grandma Parsons was with us for our Wolf Weekend. As the kids splashed in the swimming hole, Grandma and I sat in camping chairs along the creek and talked about everything. She told me about the fellow she likes and her flirting attempts.....we talked about leaving what you love and moving away....having lots of young babies....and the funny things they do and say. She said, "I could write a book if I'd just do it." So I told her about blogging. She was wishing that she had written down all of those crazy and precious daily memories of raising her 5 children with the man she adored. And it made me so glad that we (you and I) have the gift of blogging. If we preserve it, it will be a treasure for our children and families. I have some of my Grandmother Wolf's journals, and I'm so thankful for them.

Let the husbands laugh and roll their eyes. We're capturing the moments!

I suspect the husbands enjoy reading the blogs more than they let on. Mine does, at least!
Michele said…
Glad to have you back. I knew you must have been busy with the move but have sure missed the updates and insights! We will forgive you this once! ;o)

The "celebration" story is so sweet! It kind of makes being a mommy worth it, doesn't it?

I'm so glad you are back. I love reading your blog. We finally have the internet at home so hopefully I can keep up better with my writing. Oh and I loved the blog about your cabin. I'll never forget the time we had that party there with a bunch of kids from school. It was so much fun.

I suspect Kayla has learned to celebrate the moments by seeing her momma model that kind of lifestyle! Sweet story.

My husband claims to think blogging silly. However, when I call him in to show him pictures on someone's blog, he seems to have already seen them! hmmm...methinks the husbands like more than they like to say. =)

Sooo glad you are back, we missed you! I did have to laugh at your blog (right now, while you are sooo busy) being like getting ketchup out of a glass bottle. =D That was sooo cute what Kayla did...sounds exactly like my Sarah...she has PARTIES for us a lot! =)

That was cute you and your Grandma talking about life! Aren't Grandmas great!

Have a wonderful night, and try not to dream of paint brushes, paint, or paint fumes. =)

Love, Heather =)

Hey Sarah,
Great stories. Talking about the cabin brings back lots of great memories of fun parties, picnics, etc...

Grandma Parsons' flirting attempts??? Wish I could have been there to hear about that!!

David, I just stopped by to wish you a Happy Father's Day (a tad late).
Blessings on you and your great family.

Dear Sarah, I just found your VERY SWEET comment on my blog! You are a sweetheart...thank you for that compliment!

You have such a sweet family. Your kids are adorable. I love it that one or both of your girls look like a MINATURE SARAH (YOU) walking around!! =)

I trust things are going good with your new home. I'm sure it's an overwhelming task, but I know it will be BEAUTIFUL when y'all get done!! =) Can't wait to see it!

Lord willing, my parents are moving in 2 weeks to become pastor of the Union Friends Church in Westfield, IN. Don't know how far away that is from you, but when we come back on deputation, we might see more of y'all, with y'all living in IN, rather than AL.

Take care,
Love, Heather =)
