If 4 out of 5 people suffer from diarrhea, does that mean the fifth one enjoys it?  ~M

 

Such a shitty joke… Lol… 😉

If man evolved from monkeys and apes, than why do we still have monkeys and apes? ~M

Did you realize that if you spell the word “live” backwards, it spells the word “evil,” and if you spell the word “lived” backwards, it spells the word “devil?”  Is this perhaps the reason, that life is often considered a “living hell?”  ~M

Dear Santa…

dear-santa

Dear Santa,

Everyone is starting to tell me that you aren’t really real.  But Santa, I want you to know that I still believe in you.  Don’t get me wrong, I know that the Santa at the mall isn’t really you, but actually just one of your many helpers.  Yet I know you really must exist, because my mom told me that you’re best friends with God, and I know she wouldn’t lie.  God seems really far away, and I’m not quite sure he actually hears me sometimes.  So Santa, could you please give him a message for me?  This Christmas, all I want is for all the sick people in the world to be healed and for everyone to be happy.  Even if it’s just for one day.  So could you please ask him for me?  I wrote him a letter last year, and I don’t think he got it, as it is still on my window sill.  I know it’s a lot to ask, but it’s really all I want.  Thanks Santa, you’re the best!

Love,

Michelle (8 Yrs. old)


I was recently challenged to write a letter to Santa, after I challenged my friend Paul to do the same thing.  You can read his letter here.  The letter above was based on a memory I have, of writing a letter to God when I was a little girl.  I wish I still had that letter, it would be so much fun to read now.  Anyway, hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season, and I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!  And don’t forget the true reason why we celebrate.  Love you guys!  ~M  xoxo

My Bubbly Baby

My daughter is turning 8 today, so I thought I’d repost this cute video of her when she was a baby.  Happy Birthday Autumn Rose!

For the Writing 101 class we were asked to share a quote and then write something below the quote.  I decided to share this video of my daughter instead.  Have a wonderful weekend everyone!  This video, even though it is of poor quality, is sure to make you laugh.  Notice the foot long drool at the end!  Priceless moments like these make life worth living!  🙂

He said, “Cool.” Cool with a period at the end…

So my 19 yr old daughter just came running to me and said, “Mom!  He said, “Cool.” Cool with a period at the end!  She is a writer like me, hence the problem with just a period at the end of Cool and not an exclamation point like there should have been.  Now she strongly believes that her boyfriend is going to break up with her tonight, for lack of the exclamation point in his response to her text.  Oh the woes of life these days…  It really doesn’t get any better than this!  I’m sorry but I can’t stop laughing…  🙂  Does this make me a bad parent?

Candy Drop Dreams

If this doesn’t make you laugh, it should at least make you cry.  Lol…  😉

Candy drop dreams
Whisk me away
In this black licorice world
I cannot stay

Sugar plum fairies
Hold me steady
Teach me how to dance
And don’t let me go until I’m ready

Caramel clusters
Hold me together
Keep me from falling apart
In this marshmellowy weather

Toffee bar bridges
Guide my way
Help me to get to the other side
And don’t let me stray

Minty trimmed mountains
I hear your call
As I reach up to climb you
Please don’t let me fall

Chocolate rivers
Flood my soul
Please help me to reach
My ultimate goal

This has to be the worst poem
I’ve ever written
All I can think of is that
It’s hormonally driven

Laughter really is the best medicine

il_570xN.580387867_7r9i

My girls were both sick this past week with the flu and I was feeling exhausted from the buckets of vomit, which seemed to be filling up faster than I could empty. As the weekend rolled around, I was definitely ready for a break. My husband told me he was planning an early birthday surprise for me and I figured with the girls being sick, he would just have to cancel whatever plans he had made.

Fortunately by Saturday afternoon, both of the girls were feeling much better and so hubby and I decided to make a break for it and leave the chaos behind. We had about an hour drive before we reached our destination. We finally arrived at a church and I was still completely clueless as to what my surprise could be. I knew it couldn’t be a marriage seminar, there were too many kids there for that! And it seemed too early in the day for a concert. So why else would we be at a church on a Saturday, at 3:00 in the afternoon?

After making our way inside, I was pleasantly surprised to find out that we were there to see my favorite Christian comedian, Tim Hawkins. I don’t think I have ever been more surprised in all my life and I have never laughed more than I did that afternoon. It was actually the first time that I had ever been surprised by my husband over the entire 22 years we’ve been married. I hope he keeps the surprises coming! Although I don’t know what he could ever do to top this! 😉

One thing that really spoke to me, was how Tim said, “The joy of the Lord is our strength.” I have heard that quoted so many times in my life, but I had never really thought about how powerful that statement is, or what it really means. After laughing so much during the show, I realized how energizing and strengthening laughter can be. Joy lifts our spirits and gives us the strength we need to make it through each and every day.

I realize now, that I need to laugh more and look for the joy in each day.  I want to be flooded with the strength that comes from being happy by knowing Jesus and appreciate the life which he has given to me. Today I am thankful for laughter and I wanted to share one of Tim Hawkins videos, so that all of you will have something to laugh about too! I hope you’re all having an amazing God filled week! 😉

Here’s a little bit of humor to start your morning off right.  Enjoy!  😉

Too smart for her own good!

I was going through some old photos tonight and came across this one.  My daughter was 4 yrs old when she did this.  Kids… they can always make you smile.  🙂

Oh Christmas Tree (Homeschool style)

Making candy trains!

Autumn and her candy train

My daughter Amy and I wrote this song together as part of a homeschooling project years ago.  Every year, I find myself singing this tune along with the silly words we wrote and remembering our first year of homeschooling.  We had such a fun year and had a really awesome Christmas party where we strung popcorn alternating with wooden beads and hung them on the Christmas tree.  We also made Christmas trains which is a tradition in our house each year.  I love creating new traditions with my children.  Last year instead of giving stockings filled with gifts, we decided to give decorative boxes filled with gifts instead, to signify more closely what the Magi brought to Jesus.  We also put messages to each other in the boxes during the year when we want to say something special to someone.  Then on Christmas day, we read through the notes and see how we were each thought of throughout the year.  This year our church provided an advent book for us and we have been having fun reading through the family devotions each day.  How does your family celebrate Christmas?  Are there any traditions that you would like to share?  We would love to hear from you!  Merry Christmas!  ~The Cooks

Sing this as you read it, so much more fun that way!

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

The kids are screaming in the cars
The moms and dads aren’t getting far.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

The cat is sleeping on the floor
The dog is pooping by the door

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

The presents are all by the tree
I’m hoping that they’re all for me.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

There’s popcorn all strung up around
And lights aglow don’t make a sound.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

The Christmas cookies look so good
I ate much more than I should

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

There’s baby Jesus in the hay
As we sit quietly and pray

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

I’m wishing for a falling star
And hope to see one from afar

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

The stars are glowing in the night
We all can’t wait for such delight.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

The stores are all locked up real tight
While kiddies sleep away the night.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

We give our praises to the king
And hear the heavenly angels sing

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.

The icicles are melting fast
As we all toast to New Years past.

Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your branches.
