Love Poems

THESE ARE ENTRIES TO A WASHINGTON POST
COMPETITION ASKING FOR A TWO-LINE RHYME
WITH THE MOST ROMANTIC FIRST LINE,
AND THE LEAST ROMANTIC SECOND LINE:



1. My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife:
Marrying you has screwed up my life.

2. I see your face when I am dreaming.
That's why I always wake up screaming.

3. Kind, intelligent, loving and hot;
This describes everything you are not.

4. Love may be beautiful, love may be bliss,
But I only slept with you 'cause I was pissed.

5.. I thought that I could love no other
-- that is until I met your brother.

6. Roses are red, violets are blue,
sugar is sweet, and so are you.
But the roses are wilting, the violets are dead,
the sugar bowl's empty and so is your head.

7. I want to feel your sweet embrace;
But don't take that paper bag off your face.

8. I love your smile, your face, and your eyes
Dang, I'm good at telling lies!

9. My love, you take my breath away.
What have you stepped in to smell this way?

10. My feelings for you no words can tell,
Except for maybe 'Go to he!l.'

11. What inspired this amorous rhyme?
Two parts vodka, one part lime.

Embracing Imperfection

I got this e-mail today and loved the message!

"When I was a little girl, my mom liked to make breakfast food for dinner every now and then. And I remember one night in particular when she had made breakfast after a long, hard day at work. On that evening so long ago, my mom placed a plate of eggs, sausage, and extremely burned toast in front of my dad. I remember waiting to see if anyone noticed! Yet all my dad did was reach for his toast, smile at my mom, and ask me how my day was at school. I don't remember what I told him that night, but I do remember watching him smear butter and jelly on that toast and eat every bite!
When I got up from the table that evening, I remember hearing my mom apologize to my dad for burning the toast. And I'll never forget what he said: 'Baby, I love burned toast.'
Later that night, I went to kiss Daddy good night and I asked him if He really liked his toast burned. He wrapped me in his arms and said, 'Debbie, your Momma put in a hard day at work today and she's real tired. And besides a little burnt toast never hurt anyone!'


You know, life is full of imperfect things.....and imperfect people. I'm not the best housekeeper or cook. What I've learned over the years is that learning to accept each other's faults - and choosing to celebrate each other's differences - is one of the most important keys to creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship.
And that's my prayer for you today. That you will learn to take the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of your life and lay them at the feet of Jesus. Because in the end, He's the only One who will be able to give you a relationship where burnt toast isn't a deal-breaker! We could extend this to any relationship, in fact, understanding is the base of any relationship, be it a husband-wife or parent-child or friendship!! "

My favorite Job!

"The noblest calling in the world is that of mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after painting shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give."

DADDY'S GONNA EAT YOUR FINGERS

This will make you smile!

This one is for everyone who...
a) has kids
b) had kids
c) was a kid
d) knows a kid
e) is going to have kids.

I guess that means all of us!!


DADDY'S GONNA EAT YOUR FINGERS

I was packing for my business trip and my three year old daughter was having a wonderful time
playing on the bed. At one point she said,'Daddy, look at this' , and stuck out two of her fingers.

Trying to keep her entertained, I reached out and stuck her tiny fingers in my mouth and said,
'Daddy's gonna eat your fingers,'
pretending to eat them.

I went back to packing, looked up again and my daughter was standing on the bed staring at her
fingers with a devastated look on her face.

I said, 'What's wrong, honey?'

She replied,

'What happened to my booger?'


HA HA HA.....GoTtA LovE it!

Let Someone Pamper You!!

One indulgence most of us enjoy on vacation is being served. Whether it's the fresh towels each day, a cold drink by the pool, or just having the paper delivered with morning coffee, pampering certainly reverses any feelings of being overburdened. So for a quick-lift when you're not on vacation, consider letting someone pamper you!!

  • If your budget allows, get a quick chair massage during your lunch hour.
  • At day's end, ask your significant other to rub your feet
  • If a coworker offers to bring you back a drink or something to eat, gratefully accept.
  • Find a one-time "hire" to wash your car or windows.
  • When a friend offers to treat you to lunch, receive the gift graciously.
  • If your boss says you deserve the afternoon off, take it.
  • If a neighbor offers to mow your lawn when he does his own, take him up on it.

For those of you who are thinking, "Right! Like anyone would offer to wait on me!" I can only say that if you ask for what you want and believe that you will receive it, you usually do.

The other day my sister had a friend that wanted her to go with her to get a pedicure and offered to PAY and she DECLINED!! Sometimes we feel bad about letting others do things for us, but LET THEM and then you too will have the chance to show the favor to someone else! Being a mother is stressful and we ALL need to take a time out once in a while.

Easter Craft!

Here is something fun to do with the Kiddos! I am going to have the kids in nursery make them for the activity....they will LOVE them!

You'll Need:
1. baby food jar - clean and without label
2. glue - Glue dots are great for this craft
3. cotton balls (marshamllows or white jeely beans work for an edible treat)
4. wiggle Eyes
5. pink or white small pom-pom (1/2 inch)
6. pink or white larger pom-pom (1 inch)
7. small piece of white yarn
8. white or pink chenille stem ( pipe cleaner)
9. Acrylic paint - white or pink

Paint the jar lid with acrylic paint and let it dry while you make the rest of the bunny. Fill the baby food jar with cotton balls, marshmallows or other white treat.
To make the whiskers, tie a knot in the center of the yarn. Then unravel the pieces and trim

Glue the whiskers to the front of the jar and then add the smaller pom-pom nose and eyes. Now add the larger pom-pom tail to the back bottom edge of the jar.

Cut the chenille stem in half to make two ears. Loop and twist the ends together and then glue to the back of the lid. Glue dots or a hot glue gun will make this step easier.

Have Fun!

Easter Smores

So I was just browsing trying to find something fun to do for easter and found these super cute Easter Smores! Aren't they super Cute?!?! I think we will make a few for Family Night (To use for my visiting teaching!!) because they are cute but easy to make. Yeah I am not too crafty and I am nowhere close to being a good cook!



Just thought that I would share this super cute idea!







INGREDIENTS AND DIRECTIONS:

1. Reduce 1 sleeve graham crackers to crumbs.
2. Layer 2/3 of the crumbs in a 1 quart jar.
3. Place 8 marshmallow bunny peeps standing up, facing out around the inside of the jar.
4. Press them up against the glass, but don't squash them.
5. Carefully spoon remaining crumbs in the center of the jar to support the bunnies, pressing down to keep it snug.
6. On top of this pour 1-1/4 cup Easter M&M's.
7. Spoon 1/3 cup brown sugar into center of M&M's, gently pressing with a spoon.

1. Empty the jar contents into a bowl. Snip the bunnies into bits with kitchen sheers or cut up with a knife. Return the bunny bits to the mixture. Mix well.
2. Melt 1/2 cup butter; add 1 teaspoon vanilla. Pour this over the dry ingredients, mixing well. Pat into a greased 9" square pan.
3.Bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Cool and cut into bars.(Makes 9 to 12 bars.)

*Option - leave bunnies whole; combine remaining ingredients and place the bunnies on top; then bake as directed.

*This gift jar may be created to suit any holiday for which marshmallow candies are available.

Chicken Cordon Bleu

OK So I made Chicken Cordon Bleu last night and it was SOOO good I had to share the recipe. Seriously if I made it then it is easy because I was not blessed with the art of cooking!


Chicken Cordon Bleu
6 Boneless chicken breasts
6 thin slices ham
6 this slices swiss cheese
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 cornflake crumbs (I used bread crumbs)
salt and pepper


Place chicken pieces between sheets of plastic wap and pound with meat mallet or rolling pin to about 1/8 inch thick.
Place one slice of cheese on each slice of ham roll ham and cheese and place in center of chicken breast. Tuck in ends and wrap chicken around ham. (Just roll it up!) Fasten edges with toothpicks. Add spices to cornslake crumbs. (I didn't do this because I didn't have thyme and it still tasted good) Dip chicken in melted butter and roll in crumbs.
Place chicken in baking dish. bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes or until chicken is browned. Serve with Cordon Bleu Sauce.


Chicken Cordon Bleu Sauce
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup evaporated milk
1 cup hot water
2 chicken bouillion cubes
salt and pepper

Melt butter in saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour with wire whisk. Gradually pour in milk stirring constantly until smooth. Add bouillion to water and stir until dissolved. Stir into milk mixture and bring to a boil. Add salt and pepper to taste.

SnOw!!





















Oh my gosh, Can we say "SNOW!" I was getting really excited for spring and then BAM we got hit with a crapload of snow! Beckham loved it. He wanted for me to just put him down and let him go. When I took him in the house he screamed and threw a fit so I let him watch out the front door. He and Taylor had a blast even though he was in and she was out!! I love the snow but only for a short time and then I am ready for it to go away. I would have to say that my favorite time of year is the Fall.






Here ya go DAD!
