Kids are life.  Having kids around and people to take care of is the best part of life.  Sometimes we don't always feel like doing the "taking care of" part.  But what else is life about??

  Imagine a Thanksgiving dinner with no little kids..BORING!!

Imagine sleeping through the night...well..maybe that is not boring...but one day there will be no warm little person crawling into bed for a middle of the night cuddle...that is BORING!!

Emily went over to a friends house the other day and she said it was SO quiet in there house.  I said what did you think about that..she said...BORING!!

Imagine lighting Advent candles with no little kids waiting all of dinner to blow it out...BORING!!

Imagine hearing a really good song by Taylor Swift and NOT having to listen to it 99x in a row...SUPER BORING!!

******************************************************



We had 18 people sleeping here over the week of Thanksgiving.  It was crazy!  We have 1 TV in the basement with no cable.  We do watch movies from NetFlix and get DVD's sometimes..but we are not big TV people.  Most of my family found this hard to believe.  I come from a TV heavy family, so 5 days with no Fox news BLARING in the background felt odd to them...

A few times I heard people saying..".I don't have any idea what is going on.  I feel so out of touch".

My thoughts are ..REALLY??  What in the world happens on TV that you need to be SO in touch with?  Nothing good.

They all survived.  I sometimes worried that they would be bored with no TV, but how can you be bored around here.  If nothing else there is always laundry to help me fold.  And when my bed is filled with laundry there are usually 1 to 2 people hiding in the pile laughing and playing...never boring!!

  2. This post is cracking me up because I can SO relate. Our relatives have a really hard time staying in our home too without cable and without Fox news. But I know we are not missing much without t.v.!!! And having plenty of kids around is NEVER BORING for sure!!!!

  3. My family and I had the privilege of joining all of you on Thanksgiving weekend. The house was full of love, fun, children, food and family. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. My favorite part was playing with your children, who are just wonderful.

    Love to you all,
    Cousin Arthur
