Prayer Request July 21, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — jyeger @ 11:20 pm

I recently found out that my friend Stephanie’s husband lost his job.  Can you please add Stephanie and her family to your prayers.  I know her hubby has had some interviews…I think most of them would require relocating.  I would prefer if they stay in Columbus.  Stephanie’s son Andrew will be in the same class with Leah. 

Also, can you say a prayer for my friend Julie.  She has been suffering from alot of back/neck pain and the doctors can’t figure out what’s wrong. 

Thank you!


Fun Bits for the Last Week…

Fun bits for the week of July 14th…

* Birthdays and more birthdays…lots of pics to share…

We have an inflatable waterslide.  The kids enjoyed the water fun!  Kami went down a couple of times and then decided she had had enough. 

After she hit the water she would get up and clap for herself.

Another cute cake picture!

Brooke sharing her cake. 🙂

Kami asked for a fork to eat her cake.  She had her own smash cake but she wasn’t interested in smashing it.  She ate a couple of bites of frosting and was done.

It was a Mickey Mouse themed party so we had Mickey Mouse rice crispy treats!  Yum!

Our friend Megan enjoying the slide.

Our friend Kendall enjoying some cake.

*Leah enjoyed princess dance camp this past week.  She was in heaven! 

On the last day of camp, Leah’s family and friends were invited to a tea.  The camp instructor put makeup on the girls before their performance.  I know I’m biased, but I think she looks beautiful in this shot.  She’s so grown up!!  Boo Hoo Hoo Hoo. 😦

Leah’s friend Brooke also attended the camp.  Here they are doing a little dance for us.  Like I said, she was in heaven!

*  Brooke is still climbing on everything.  Here is a another pic of her in the rocking chair.  Everytime she gets up in the chair, she starts rocking.  She’s fallen a couple of times, but it hasn’t stopped her!

I’m sure there were funnies this week, but I just can’t remember any right now.  Too tired.

This was Brooke’s first birthday cake and as we expected, she dove right in.  Love it!  Thank you Holly for getting this shot!


Did you know I have a 30+ year old pillow? July 18, 2008

I saw this on the msn home page today and it made me chuckle.  I have family members who see these articles or hear news reports about bed bugs or germs and immediately think of me and my pillow.  I have a 30+ year old pillow.  I’ve had it since I was 2 or so.  It’s my security blanket.  I know some of you are germiphobes (you know who you are) and would totally freak out if you saw the inside of my pillow. Please know I wash it occasionally.

I haven’t bothered to read the article yet…I really don’t want to.  I know it will tell me to throw out my pillow NOW!  It will tell me to BURN it and RUN as far away from it as I can!  But I can’t – I love my pillow.  It’s been my buddy through thick and thin.  It’s been around the world (literally – it’s been to China).  It’s been lost a couple of times and returned.  It also keeps me company when hubby is out of town.  Now, why would I want to replace it?


Oh My July 16, 2008

Leah had a friend over for a playdate today.  To entertain them, we set up our inflatable waterslide so they would have some water fun in this 90 degree weather.  About an hour into the fun, the playmate mentions they should pretend that their “boyfriends” are playing on the slide with them.  Leah decided her “boyfriend” would be called Andrew.  Both she and the playmate were pretending that the “boyfriends” were splashing them, pushing them down the slide and what appeared to be flirting with them.  Oh my, I thought to myself…I’m not ready for this!  Leah JUST TURNED 5!!  Should I lock her up and throw away the key?

By the way, I forgot to mention that Leah asked me if I had a “boyfriend” the other day.  I had no idea where this came from and when I didn’t answer right away, hubby stepped in and said “it’s taking you a long time to answer her”.  Ha!


Happy Birthday Baby Brooke!!

Yep, if you’ve been reading my blog then you’re wondering…didn’t Kami just have a birthday?  Yes, she did.  Kami and Brooke are 367 days apart!  This makes things a little crazy around here!

Brooke (Brookie or Brookus as we like to call her) is 1 year old today.  She’s a sweetie with big cheeks and thighs.  Ever since she’s been mobile she’s been a happy baby!  These days she’s trying to get into everything and climb mountains (or rocking chairs anyhow).  The year has passed by so quickly!  It feels like she was born yesterday.


Love you cutie pie!





Food for thought… July 15, 2008

Get it?  Food for thought – Jillibean “Soup” – the “Soup” Bowl.  Ok, so I’m grasping at straws.  I’m not feeling very funny these days.

I like this quote though…


“This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind…let it be something good.”  – Author Unknown
