Today, I'm dressed up in maternity clothes. (After being soooo tired and nauseated for over a month now, my family thinks it is a miracle when I can get up and get dressed in normal clothes and am not in my robe all day! =) Thanks for your prayers for baby and I. Baby is wanting the world to notice him/her...and my "baby bump" is getting bigger. I'll post pics of baby and I in a couple weeks. Until then....on the following post...I'll post a recipe for the BEST and Quickest choc. sheet cake that I have probably ever made or eaten.
~~~A funny story!~~~
When we have family devotions...we always sing a hymn or 2 in ENGLISH so our children won't forget all the English hymns. So, today, I went to the piano and played for that hymn. Kimberly grabbed her violin to play, which inspired Noah to grab his guitar, and Sarah to grab her drum that Phillip had purchased her in Ecuador. So, poor Phillip was going to have to sing alone. I told him to bring the hymn book to the piano and I would help him sing. So...here we are...QUITE the family devotions, with QUITE THE BAND. Well, Sarah was sitting on a stool in front of the couch and playing her DRUM for all she was worth. Noah was faithfully strumming his guitar behind her on the couch. Sarah's drum only has one large stick, with a wide ROUND handle. Well, she got carried away beating on her drum...and the stick FLEW OUT OF HER HAND...FLIPPED UP INTO THE AIR AND CAME DOWN AND SMACKED POOR UNSUSPECTING NOAH ON THE HEAD!! Since I was playing the piano, I didn't see this happen, but poor Phillip did and he was trying not to laugh, but couldn't help it. It was such a coincidence that that stick would fly through the air and land on Noah's head... and it was soooo hilarious too. So, here is Phillip explaining to the rest of us what had happened while we were HOWLING LAUGHING, and here is poor Noah weeping his eyes out. We all tried to hide our chuckles and comfort him, but it WAS NOT EASY. Sorry, I was playing the piano so couldn't take any pictures of our BAND! =D Later, as we told the story on the phone to Grandma, Noah was laughing too. Our family devotions are always fun and interesting, never a dull moment. =)
