I already thought we were charging a LOT...apparently we weren't. So I upped our prices..don't look, it embarrasses me. WHO would pay so much? If anyone I know wants something Stephen makes...ask us...DON'T order it from our etsy.
I am so cheap I wait for things to go on sale at the second hand stores before I buy them.
"What? A WHOLE dollar for a skirt....I don't think so...I'll wait til half price day"
You haven't really "gained" any skills since last time I posted..you've just gotten faster at everything you do. So I'll just post some stories of things you have done as of late.
The first thing coming to mind is the other day, we were coming back from Junction with Daddy, and you started crying. I was eating some Rits crackers, so I handed you one. Apparently that is NOT what you wanted. You grabbed it with both hands and pulled as hard as you could in opposite directions. When the cracker broke in half, you crumbled both handfuls and threw them down. It was pretty funny....but then you just got to cry...without a cracker, since it was obviously just a "Teresa fit". (Our new name for a hissy fit, because we don't know who Hissy is, but Teresa throws pretty good fits)
Also, not too long ago, while I was standing by the computer talking to Granola (Grandmother Nola) you coughed on me and little pieces of bug flew onto my arm...you had eaten the rest I guess. Yummy, taking after Uncle Daniel.
In addition to "mooing" you can now also "bah" or whatever sound sheep and goats make, and also say "ow"
As I type this you are crouching behind the wheat bucket and popping back up to play peekaboo with Teresa.
I cannot seem to think of anything else right now...there has to be something..you are such a character.
Hopefully soon we will be taking you to see Cowgranny and Grumpa.
No we weren't grumpy, just making faces to try and keep splashing water out or our faces.

I had never wanted to take any birth control, but wanted to obey my (to be) husband. Well after a year and a half, I still had a daily struggle with taking the pill. Yet I continued to take it religiously. I kept them and some water by the head board of the bed. Every morning I would take one of the evil little pills. One day we were leaving for work (I work with Stephen) and I told Stephen I needed to run back and take the pill, so while he went to start the pickup, I went back and got the pill for the day. I always kept water right there so I wouldn't forget. Well I had run out of water so I popped the pill out and headed for the front of the house for water. As I went out of our bedroom my hand bumped the doorframe and the pill fell behind my dresser. I said "Well God, that was pretty clear" and headed out the door. It had been EXTRA heavy on my heart as of late not to be taking the pill, so I took that as a sign from God, told Stephen and he agreed. I have never taken birth control since that day, and never will. Because of timing, if I wasn't pregnant with Tyrel at that point, I was soon after.
Fast forward to present day. I was in the bathroom this morning, brushing my teeth and looking into our bedroom so I could watch Tyrel. He has been bad about eating rocks and mud clumps that fall off of boots onto the floor. Well I saw him pick up a "rock" to eat. I had just swept, but he pulled it from under the wall. (Our carpet was pulled up a few months ago, so there is a space under the wall where the carpet used to be that tiny fingers can reach under.)
I took the rock from him as he tried to put it in his mouth. It was blue, so I looked closer.....a birth control pill. I had only ever dropped one. Right where he picked it up from. I don't know what it would do to a 10 month old baby, but I am so grateful we didn't find out.
