Here I Am

Well, here I am on the couch with little Mirial who has suddenly contracted a cold. Her poor little nose is stuffed up-it's tough to hear her breathing through her mouth all day long, and she's got a little fever. She's been laying on the couch all day-mostly with me; watching some TV, being read to and nodding in and out of sleep. She is the perfect picture of pathetic invalid. I'm praying for her...hard.

A post to my siblings!

I know that some of you people are older sisters/brothers. Even if you're not, you might be interested to find out about mine.

This is Maxwell. More commonly known as Max. He's taller than I am which makes some people think that He's older-but he's not, of course. Max is hilarious. I believe he's going to be a comedian when he grows up!

Marley is a very big help to me. She is my best friend as well as my right-hand person. Marley can make the big people laugh and the little people follow her around like ducks! She's a wonderful sister to me

Moses is a little kermudjen. And that's almost become a nick name for him now! He's really a lot of fun to be around and he's the oldest of the youngest 3 (almost4) little ones in the family, so he has the air of an "oldest" brother.
A few weeks ago in church, Moses was called up in his little-kid worship to pray. When he was handed the mic, he covered it up with his hand and whispered to the teacher, "After I pray, can I do a little comedy?"!

Mirial is a perfect doll. She is such a little person but can certainly be surprising!

The other day, mom (who's pregnant) was laying in her bed on her back. After looking gravely at mom's belly for a minute, Mirial said, "Mom, I think the baby's crackin' out now!" How funny!

Matthew is the baby (for now) and he's got a way bigger personality than you might think at first glance. I believe he'll be a basketball player when he grows up because he's so tall and bulky for a little guy his age! And he talks too. At only two years-old he probably has the vocabulary of a 6 year-old!
He's a perky little thing, and I think that he could have cheered up even old Scrooge!

So there you have it. My awesome siblings in their awesome pictures-though I must admit that Mirial's picture is probably the cutest thing that's ever been posted online!

For those of you with braces...

Or for those of you who have really nice friends with braces!

I have made a recent discovery. Perhaps you may have thought of it too.

If you have braces and use rubber bands, here's a fun way to utelize those rubber bands...
Take a tiny piece of your hair and braid it. You can use a rubber band to hold it in place. I tried it the other night. The rubber bands are waaaaay smaller than the regular hair pony-tail holders, so you can make tiny, miniscule little braids for you or your dolls or your friends. It's a fun way to make use of all those bags of rubber bands you've probably accumulated. This would work great on any type of hair!
