This is my Season.

"I know that there is nothing better for [me] than to rejoice and to do good in [my] lifetime; moreover that every man who eats and drinks sees good in all his labor-- it is the gift of God."

Ecclesiastes 3:12-13

Smoke and Tears

I am such a mean mommy.
Today while the kids were playing in the playroom the alarm clock started beeping. I was at the computer as they kinda freaked out that something was beeping. I simply said "Uh oh it's gonna blow. You better run it's gonna blow up!!" That sent the kids flying in 4 different directions. Cooper went running out the back door, Aidan tried to escape out of the front door, Molly went in circles trying to decide who to follow, and Eli came running to me in tears!
After I stopped laughing I told them it was nothing.

Unfortunately, while I was making dinner I filled the kitchen with smoke from a hot oven. The smoke alarm started blaring. Again, 4 chickens with their heads cut off go running through my house.

I'm telling you.. there is no dull moment in this home!!
