Yummy Salad (inspired by my pal Chelsea's great salad.)

Homemade Tarter Sauce. SO GOOD!

Sam thinks he is so funny! I love almost 10 year old boys.

In our family when you turn 5 you get butter knife privileges!
She is so proud~

Could this be more funny?

It's okay, it's not real!

Our kids are so great!

I love that they trust us about everything~ I am asked questions all day every day..
I am just not that knowledgeable..lol These are some hard questions!!

I am grateful that they are the ones that came to live with us, I am glad that we are our family.

So.. What is it that is not real?? That thing I said up at the top there. ↑
Here it is, every time there is a movie on I have to tell the kids this.. "It's ok, it's not real."

I have always been bothered that they will all cry and run into a different room if they are afraid. We have to leave movies all the time because it is to scary. I get frustrated by this some times.
And... when other people tell me about movies I usually hear something like this..
"It was a GREAT movie, your kids might not be able to handle it."

Well, I have been thinking about this alot this past holiday season. Here is the deal..

I am HAPPY that my kids cry at scary things~

I will be so sad the day that they think that it is funny when people get hurt. I would never want them to think it is okay to kill anything. I don't want them to be alright with violence towards women or children~

I am so grateful for the tender souls that they have. I feel blessed that they believe me when I tell them they are going to be alright.

Do you know how great it is to know that there are people who completely trust you? I do~

PS.. From now on if people ask me how a movie is I might just say..
"Your kids will like it they are very desensitized~"
Ok..I would not do that ;)
