Toddler Talk Thursday - Clothes

So my kids will hate me someday for posting this, but when I think of clothes, I think of dress up.  My kids came up with these outfits completely on their own.  I love how my son matches so well.  And I couldnt believe my daughter could walk in these shoes! I can't even walk in them!  My kids dont dress up a lot, but they enjoy it when they do.  When halloween is over, I'm taking advantage of Halloween costume sales so my kids have more dress up clothes!
I am doing this as part of a blog hop thingy...still new to it...check it out!

Secure In Heart

I went to an amazing women's day in Reno today. The guest speaker was the author of the book, ""Secure In Heart". It was an amazing conference. The sharing was phenomenal, deep, moving, and personal. I learned so much I feel that I have to look it over all again just to absorb it. There was discussion about God being our Guard, about letting our guard down, letting relationships in, and valuing the woman (or man!) that God made us to be. I will do a review and a GIVEAWAY!!! of an autographed copy of her book soon, it will be my first giveaway, so I am uber excited.  I wish I could say more about the Women's Day, it's all jumbling around in my mind and heart right now.  There was great food, fellowship and prizes! :)  They had fun gift bags.  I felt so blessed to be there, had a great time, and a great trip.  It was put on by the Greater Reno Church of Christ.  They are a great church, and we are so grateful to them for hosting us!  If you want to know more about my trip, please feel free to email me. I will be posting a review of this book and more on the conference along with my first giveaway soon!

BEE Funny Friday

Soo...I really want to bee funny, but am still a bit under the weather, so funny doesn't exactly come naturally right now. I would like to share an exchange between my 3 1/2 year old and his little friend who is also 3:
To set the stage, they are in the bathroom....
when the little girl lifts the lid and says..."This potty is too little! My but is too big for this potty!"  Then my son says something like "I have a little butt!"  To which she replies "My butt is little yours is big!"  Kids are sooo funny!

Toddler Talk Thursday -Games

My kids love games. Especially Wii, anything on my iphone, hide and seek is a current favorite. They are too little to play board games, but its amazing how fast they pick up on technology.

This is my son and his little friend playing the Wii.  He loves Mario Kart!  He also loves Just Dance.  I wish I would spend more time playing with him!
Another current favorite of his is drawing.  Not exactly a game, but a favorite pass-time... That explains the paper on the floor!

Wordless Wednesday - Matching Outfits

This is my kids in their fair clothes. My stepmom makes their clothes for fair, halloween, christmas, among others.  Its not something I appreciated so much as a kid, but I am so grateful for it know.  She is so talented, and I love it when they match!
I have been sick the last couple of days, so don't have anything recent, but figure this is worth it!

BEE Funny Friday

Today doesn't leave a lot to bee funny about...It was a busy one, with lots of delays, and its still not over. Its almost 9 p.m. and my kids are still up.  The funny thing my son does right now, is tell me every time he hears a "bad" word.  Why this is funny to me, is because we have taught him that words like "stupid" or "hate" are "bad" words, and he keeps hearing us say them!  Or he hears them on tv, or the radio.  These are words that are used soo commonly in our society, and his innocent ears are so sensitive to them.  This may not seem like a "funny" thing, but it is very prevalent to us right now.  I am so grateful he is so innocent, and I love his pure heart.  I just think its hilarious when he says "Daddy, hate is a bad word, we don't say hate".  Caught you! Or me!

Toddler Tuesdays - Halloween

Halloween is going to be a fun event this year. My kids know what it is, more or less, and are excited about it. Luckily my son and daughter are kind of working together on what they are going to be - a dragon and a princess. It works right? Grandma is making their costumes again, so we are all really excited about that. I am so grateful to have her to do this for me! Besides the fact that costumes are expensive, it is so special to have her doing this. I always (well, almost) appreciated it as a kid, even though I didn't express it. I remember feeling so proud that she made our costumes.
I am posting pics of last years costumes...Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf. I hope my kids continue to want to be complementary things, they are so close in age they should!

Ok...I cant find a pic of my daughter, but you get the idea.  They were so cute!  Ok...Im in class now, so I really should get back to class!

Wordless Wednesday

This is my first time participating in Wordless Wednesday.  It is a challenge for me, because I cant even spell Wednesday!  This is the sky at my mom's place in Northern California.  It is so beautiful there, and I love to lay out and watch the stars.  I thought this was a cool pic, it looks like something you would find as a desktop screensaver or something, but I actually took it!

Blogger Input

I would like to send an appeal out there to all my fellow mommy bloggers.  I am trying to update and improve my blog, but really need some technical help.  I am unsure how to make more "pages"  and would appreciate any feedback/input/advice any of you have.  Thanks in advance!

Free Bibles

Use this link to get a free bible for your mobile device!  This is a great app, I use it all the time, and am excited to offer it to my readers!  It is so helpful to have the bible all the time, at my fingertips, without actually carrying one around.  I hope all of you are able to take advantage of this offer.
