Williams Wednesday 9/23/09

Starting a Bible study at church tonight using this book. A friend recommended this a while back and it's made me so aware of what the media teaches young girls about their "worth." I've been reading this book and..YES..I'm aware that Ally is only TWO! But I want to be able to have purposeful discussions with her as she grows to help her learn the TRUTH. I'm hoping to learn so much from the other moms in the class.
Also, say a quick prayer for my friends Nancy and Candice. Nancy is in recovery after a surgery almost 3 weeks ago to remove some tumors that turned out NOT to be malignant. Praise God for the good news, but she has endured a long recovery and is still in the hospital. Candice, my longtime friend from Hartselle, has flown to L.A. to have a cyst removed from her spinal cord, on the base of her brain. She has endured months of peculiar symptoms..dizziness, facial numbness, pressure in face & sinuses..and now, after surgery, all is gone! Just having some post-op nausea. They will fly back to Memphis on Sunday night, spent the night w/us, then head back to Alabama. Not quite the "catch up" visit I usually enjoy w/her, but just keep her in your prayers.
Love and hugs to all!
God is good!!!

Williams Wednesday

Events of this week:

Ally began potty training ON HER OWN while visiting Nannie's on Monday - promptly went out & bought "big girl" underwear for her. The boys couldn't figure out why we were making such a big deal. They've obviously never changed a diaper.

We entered Ben's cabbage into the Bonnie Plants Cabbage Program contest, with the help of his 4th grade teacher, Ms. Spain. Click the link below & it should take you to the photo gallery of the contest. He is "Ben-TN." He was so excited and amazed at the other entries. Good luck, Ben!

Jake? Well..Jake is just still having fun EVERY DAY drawing and writing. This morning, he took so long getting ready b/c he kept thinking of words that start with "M." He would go into the bathroom and come right back out, "oh..Mom!" and "" and "!" and I said, "And..move it!"

Wacky Wednesday 9/09/09

How is it possible that our little girl is getting so big? Ally started Mother's Day Out today and is in the "Older 2's - Bears" class. She was so proud to go to her "sass" (class) today. Her teachers said she had a good time making new friends and she even took a nap! In fact, if you ask Ally, "What did you do at school today?" Her response will be, "seep" (sleep) - I guess that was her last memory of what she did. Anyway, I think we'll go back next week ;)

Also, here's Jake and his new obsession..artwork. I took these pictures on Saturday - him right in the middle of about 20 sheets of drawings. If you could only see our house - Whatever he draws..THEN he wants to cut it out! Patience...patience...I know - a budding artist at work! By the way - want to hear a kindergartener's perspective on Pres. Obama's speech today? Jake said "Try your best." From the mouths of babes...

Boys, Bullfrogs, and "No More Babies"

Here's a picture of the boys' latest "treasure" that they found in the pool. Well, actually Cory found it while cleaning the pool. They later released it into the lake at the park. Don't they look thrilled? Notice how Jake is BARELY touching that ole' thing - hehe.

This is the picture of a true "paci" addict! But the pacis are gone..."pacis are for babies" - Or that's what we're telling Ally. We talked for a day or so about how pacis are for babies and we might need to give them the pacis. We had just visited a friend in the hospital w/a new baby (Baby Noah) and all she has talked about it seeing the babies. So - one night, we rounded 'em up in an old wipes box. We just can't believe how willingly she cooperated. She's had a little trouble settling herself down at naptime and night-time, but we're managing. She's such a "big girl" - or so she's telling US!
