Luke Rocks..........................

Feeling a bit dazed and confused these days........
So much that I think I've been neglecting the important things (people) in my life. So last week I put the effort towards my family and because Luke is still at home with me he got some good mommy time. I've been struggling with some of his behaviors lately and haven't been sure how to deal with it all. And realizing, finally, that it could be from the tension that's built up in our house, or possibly from his mama's sarcasm (everyone who knows me, knows this :0)), or maybe just because this is one child who never went through the terrible twos or threes. So I decided to have some really special one-on-one time with him to see if it helps.

So we painted..........
and painted..............

made gingerbread men....and mooses, and buffalos, and Scottie dogs. (I had mixed up the dough for Christmas cookies and never got around to it.)...........

and then we just made him feel good (he colored this poster in with rainbow colors). It now adorns his bedroom door so we all know how important he is. :0)

It has made an amazing difference--imagine that---although perfection is still far away. I am feeling more peaceful and I know that modeling will put my kiddos at peace too. The boys are out of school today (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day) so we are going to have a day about the town. Hopefully some things are open.

Thoughts of peacefulness and deep breathes......peacefulness and deep breathes................

LOVE the face paint! We really do miss you guys...Jas just was not up for church yesterday. He worries that Fin won't like the nursery. Hope to see you soon!
