Favorite Quote of the Day

I LOVE listening to my kids talk to each other, especially in the car just after school. Kelly said "Today I did some swingin". It was so funny!!

The forgotten blog

Hey Sisters!!

I am sitting in a completely quiet house that is pretty clean (not including the kids' rooms, but I'm not cleaning them today!) I have cleaned the kitchen, bathrooms and the dining room area. I have cut out stuff on my Cricut for some friends, started crocheting a scarf and am getting my bows ready to display at River View Mercantile here in Perkins. Now I am sitting watching The Talk. What a day! Wish you both were here with me (You too Nathan).

Love you all!!!

~Just look at these faces - Oh how I love them!!

Name this movie....

I'm in my room watching this movie by myself and wishing I was with my family as I watch this classic! Who can name the movie from this quote??

Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh

First and Foremost- Happy Veterans Day to everyone!! Thanks to all those who have served and are serving and their FAMILIES!!!

Now on to business. We (my kids and I) were talking about Veterans Day as I was cooking dinner and I was asking them if they knew what it meant. We talked about how it was a day to honor all those who have served and are serving for our country. I asked them who they knew that was in the military and they both answered "Uncle Jason". I said "You are right". I then asked them if they knew what Uncle Jason does for the Navy. Here comes the good part...Kel said "Mom I know what he does. When a solider gets shot in the teeth Uncle Jason fixes their teeth for them." Now trying to hold my composure I said "and you know cleans their teeth, fixes cavities. Things like that". Kel said (while holding his hand in a gun up to his teeth) "Yay and when they get shot in the teeth too!" "Ok Kelly! Yes and when they get shot in the teeth."
Uncle Jason has the coolest job!!!

Love you all!!!

Quote of the day

Tonight the kids wanted to sleep together. Since it is not a school night we let them. They have been "trying" to go to sleep for 45 mins when Kelly came in the living room to tell us Madi was not letting him put his feet where he needed to. Then comes Madi trying to defend herself. Then comes the good part. Kelly said "Dad! Madi is listening to the devil!" (Mark and I are trying not to laugh because he was so serious!) "She was going to scratch me. She's listening to the devil!" Madi then replied "I AM NOT listening to the devil!"
Bedtime converstions here at the Stancell's house are priceless!!

Love you both!!!

Thank you from the other side of the world...at least it feels that way.

Sweet Sisters,

Rarely am I at a loss for words but I don't even really think I can convey how much your visit meant to me.  I didn't realize how much I just needed to be with family.  It was more than special to spend such quality time with the two of you.  Thank you loving on my babies.  It was special to see and also a nice relief.  Thank you for listening to me talk and talk...and rant a little.  Thank you both for just being the wonderful women that you are...I miss you both so much and can hardly wait to see at Christmas.

all the love I have in my heart
