2. Any nicknames they have (or have had) and the story behind them? Nope
3. Do you need to do laundry right now?
Of course, always! It's not as bad as it could be though! :)
4. What CD is in your CD player/music on your iPod right now?
I have Brandon Heath in the CD Rom that I've been listening to every now and then. I love him! And my kids love him too! They sing along with me!
5. How/when did you learn to ride a bicycle?
I was about 5 years old and a neighborhood boy taught me how on his little red bicycle. He was my age, but he had known how for a while. Ya know what's crazy?! My son is six years old, and he's still got training wheels on his bike. You know what he said yesterday? " Mommy, I don't want the training wheels off my bike, they're cool!" How cute is that?!
6. What is your favorite weird food combination? A jelly and butter sandwich, Peanut butter and banana sandwich (my husband thinks it's weird), a baked potato with macaroni on the side :), and that's about all I can think of at the moment! :)
7. What is something you have that is of sentimental value?
I have a couple of items that used to be my Grandma's. Well, I actually grew up calling her Yay yay, which is Grandmother in Greek. No, we're not greek, she just told us that's what she was to be called because "Grandma" made her sound "old". She was such a hoot! One of items is a small, round, glass holder with a very unique lid. The other is a velvet lined box, and I'm ashamed to say I don't know where it is. We also own a framed writing of the Lord's Prayer that was my husband's Grandmother's. She passed away 2 years ago, and I called her Grandma. The picture is hanging in our living room, right by the window. It's beautiful. It looks like it's written on gold leaf. I keep some other things out that were part of my husband's family, and each item is such a reminder of the ones lost and still loved. I believe it's so important to keep those things as part of your home.
I am the luckiest and most blessed woman that I know. I have a wonderful husband that I've been married to for 7 years, and we are raising three healthy, beautiful children here in Southern Illinois. I get to stay home with them and have been doing so since I was pregnant with our oldest child. It is so wonderful but the most challenging thing I've ever done.
I am ready for everything this life has to offer. I'm looking forward to traveling with the kids more as they get older. I want to show them everything, including countries abroad. My husband is half German, so introducing them to that is very important. I also look forward to spending more time with Rob. That time will come some day, I just know it will!
With all of the crazy times in this household, God is the center of our family and keeps us going through it all.
