Little Miss Muffet {Letter L}

For the letter L, Taitum learned the rhyme Little Miss Muffet.

Day 1

She made a spider out of a paper plate, construction paper and googly eyes.
We later tied him to a curtain rod so she could run around frightening people.

Day 2

We played the tuffet game.
The girls collected all the pillows in the house and laid them on the floor to be used as tuffets.
I then added tape to each pillow with various letters written on it.
I recited the poem with a little twist:
"Little Miss Muffet sat on a 'B', eating her curds and whey."
Tait or Piper would then run and jump on the pillow with that letter.

Day 3

Taitum posted a video on Facebook to survey who is and who is not afraid of spiders.
(Her homemade spider makes an appearance , too!)

She then compiled her data.
She placed a sticker on either the 'yes' or 'no' spider web.
Our FB friends are awesome at participating!
We ran out of spider stickers and had to switch to using do-a-dot markers.
It turns out more people are afraid of spiders!
I understand!

Day 4

We did a curds and whey experiment.
Tait added vinegar to some milk and observed how it causes the milk to separate and become chunky.

She later had a chance to eat her own curds and whey (cottage cheese).

Day 5

Finally, an 'L' craft featuring Miss Muffet, her curds and whey and that irritating spider!

Too Much Candy

Tonight I took Taitum out on a little date.
Specifically, a mission to look for boots.
(Her idea.)
Our first stop was unsuccessful.
However, she requested some Dora and Boots candies.
Since it was a date I obliged her.
We purchased them and I let her eat a packet of them while we drove to the next store.

Taitum: I LOVE candy!
Me: I know you do!
Taitum: Mama, you love candy?
Me: Yes, I love candy but not too much. Too much is not good for me!
Taitum: I LOVE too much candy!!!

Spoken like a true 3 year old!

(We did end up finding boots at our next stop. Tait immediately ripped off her ol' winter boots in order to proudly don her new purple butterfly rubber boots. And the whole way home my little girl sang, "I so happy! I so happy!")

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.


Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

~ Sally Clarkson

My Hubby

My Hubby
He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!


She is my goofy, snuggly 4 year old who loves to sing and dance and smile all day long!


She is our one year old smarty pants! She does all she can to keep up with her older sisters and to keep them in line!
