So, I was baking cherry chocolate cookies this morning and while I was warming up the oven, what to my wondering eyes should appear? It wasn't a miniature sleigh or eight tiny reindeer. It was a little small rodent scurrying from under the oven. Said friend then made a beeline to under the dishwasher and has not been seen again. Apparently Aidan was not seeing things the other day.
When I exclaimed that I just saw "it", Raelea immediately picked up the broom and said, "I'll kill it, Mom!" That's my girl! Not afraid of anything!
I'm so glad that tonight "not a creature will be stirring."
Hi! I'm Barb, but you can just call me that Crazy Mom. I have been married to the most wonderful husband in the world for 22 years. We have eight children, one dog, two bunnies and two hamster. Six of our kids are adopted, two are biological, I'll leave it to you to figure out which are which. All of our pets are adopted.
I love Jesus, my husband and my kids - in that order.
Other things I love, in no particular order:
- dark chocolate
- Mumford & Sons
- the ocean
- my hammered dulcimer
- my French horn
- dancing in the driveway
- singing in the car with the windows down
- reading really good books
