Whatnot Wednesday-When a Mama's Not Lookin' Edition


-Tonight at church we started talking about when we do bad things and asking God's forgiveness. "Like when a Mama's not lookin' and you take a cookie" was one example I was given. Or, "When a Mama's not lookin' and you steal."  Stealing seems to be our big issue with the kids in my class. Who knew? One boy told me his dad robbed a bank. Not too sure about that story, but you just never know. Anyway, thought I would show y'all what happens at my house when "A mama's not lookin'".

I guess Kate has overheard me telling Josh he needs to clean out his closet and decided to take matters into her own hands. Thanks, Kate. :)

-Josh's sister, Leah, is here from Italy. We've enjoyed visiting with her and she even took our kids to the beach on Monday and gave us a childfree morning! Isn't that awesome?  She is expecting a baby, Layla, this summer. So, we will have Leah, Layla, Luke and Lyla. I'm gonna have to practice that a lot. My sister posted a video of my niece, Lyla, walking and I commented, "Go Layla!" Ha! I'm already struggling. I'm going to have to come up with some special nicknames for everybody. :)

-I feel the need to tell y'all that I made it through Easter weekend without eating a SINGLE.PIECE.OF.CANDY. No sweets. None. To put this in perspective for you, you need to know that holidays are usually my kryptonite. I will never forget the month of Easter when I was pregnant with Sarah. I went for my check-up and I had gained 15 POUNDS in a month. Did y'all know that was even possible? Well, I did it. I remember my dr. said, "Somebody sure enjoyed her Easter bunnies" and laughed like it was the funniest thing ever. Hardy har har! Yeah, I've come a long way, I think. :)
-We are three weeks from the dance recital. After tomorrow all of my classes will meet one time before dress rehearsal and two times before the recital. I am equal parts excited and stressed. The mirrors have been covered so the girls get used to performing without them. I have to tell you, they drew an audience and it is cracking me up. We have the cast of Harry Potter, a bored brother, a couple in love and a ticked off sister our audience.

Here is Kate drawing her person.

-Eli FINALLY lost his tooth!!!!! Josh pulled it while I was at work, so I missed all of the trauma excitement. He said it didn't hurt. Praise Jesus.

                                    I posted this pic on FB and the next one in my album was this one-
It's from 2009. He said, "That looks a lot like me."  I told him it is him! Just blows my mind how fast they grow.

-I think I am as excited about summer as my kids. We are going to be crazy busy the next few weeks, and while I am excited about all that is going on, I am really looking forward to a BREAK! Can I get an Amen?

-Okay, I'm going to eat supper. You know you are a hardcore blogger when you wait to eat until you're done. :)   I promise one day I'm going to slow down long enough to have real thoughts and write something worth reading. :)

Don't miss your chance to link up!

I am again blown away by your diet strength!! WOW!! And I think I need Kate at my house - maybe with that kind of help I would actually get something done! Thanks for the concern last night - we are all good here, just sad for all those dealing with loss!
