30 Days of Thankfulness Day 5

Posted by Hallee on Nov 5, 2013 in Christian Faith, Family, inspiration, Parenting, Raising boys

At 5, Jeb is our absolute joy. I don’t say that to take anything away from our other children, but Jeb is just…joy. He is highly emotional and has a happy nature, which means he is almost always just bubbling over with happiness. A friend at church says often that she wishes she could capture his laugh and just have it throughout her day.

Pinkalicious, Head Injuries, Romance Writers & Teen Drivers

Posted by Hallee on Mar 15, 2013 in Blog Stuff, Family, Life, Raising boys, Raising teens, Writing

His pediatrician looked at him and did not like the way he acted or looked, so he sent us to the ER for a CT scan. About 5 minutes after I got there (our doctor had called ahead and immediately triaged him and put us in a room), Gregg arrived from his office, and about 5 minutes later, our pastor arrived. He annointed Scott with oil and prayed over him. (I love our pastor.) Scott was a trooper during the CT scan, even though he was scared. The results were clear – no bleeding on the brain — but he definitely has a concussion.

Smarties Airplanes

Posted by Hallee on Feb 13, 2013 in Gift Ideas, Parenting, Raising boys

When I asked Scott what kind of Valentine he wanted for his class party this year, he said he wanted to make a Valentine. I was so happy about that, because I’m all about homemade when I can.

Because I’m making Valentine’s for boys, and not girls, I had a bit of a challenge. So many of the crafts are very feminine – and that just wouldn’t be as much fun for them. I settled on a Smartie Airplane.

A Bad Habit Revealed

Posted by Hallee on Mar 27, 2012 in Housekeeping, Parenting, Raising boys

I have a bad habit.

I have a tendency to leave cleaning supplies in my wake.

I’ll clean a room, scrub it down, mop it, vacuum it, make it shine like new. And when I’m done, on one surface will be a bottle of furniture cleaner, on another a bottle of window cleaner (vinegar & water), and on tossed somewhere will be the rag I used to dust the furniture.

Seeds of Faith: Lies Women Believe About Children

I enjoyed chapter seven of Nancy Leigh DeMoss’ Lies Women Believe: And the Truth that Sets them Free. Gregg and I are raising our children to be conformed to the Word rather than to the world, and we get a lot of confused reactions to that.

Sunday Viewing

Posted by Hallee on Oct 21, 2011 in Christian Faith, Family, Life, Parenting, Raising boys, Raising girls, Raising teens

Our rule for Sunday viewing is this: it must be a Bible story, or about God or the Bible in some way. We have a HUGE movie selection, and a big portion of our movies are God focused, so there is no problem finding something to watch. We love it when the kids pick something that is a specific Bible story, but we’re happy with Veggie Tales or similar programming. Kaylee has several Christian themed teen appropriate movies and documentaries, and Gregg and I could watch the documentaries, video studies, and movies we have for a solid month and not put a dent in our choices.

To do something different, in yesterday’s Monday Morning Survey, I asked readers to ask me questions. So here they are. No question went unanswered except one – and it will be its own blog post tomorrow morning.

Expectations

Posted by Hallee on Mar 3, 2011 in Parenting, Raising boys, Raising girls, Raising teens

I read it kind of confused with myself. I’ve been a mother for nearly 14 years. Why didn’t I have anything worthwhile to add to the conversation? Then it occurred to me.

Jeb put 0n his Batman costume and asked if I would make him “Fly like Batman.”
