Bare-foot and “Paper-Pregnant” in the kitchen…

Besides the fact I’m wearing a Christmas apron (I’m getting extra wear out of it Mama Judy;), I always think to myself when I’m barefoot and cooking, “Now, if only I were pregnant;).” I totally thought that today…and realized I kinda am:). SO…Rich came home and I said, “Look honey! I’m barefoot and expecting–and in the kitchen!” I think he ALMOST had a heart attack–because he responded, “What do you MEAN you are expecting?!” HA! Just paper-pregnant silly husband!!!

Still this picture from tonight made me smile–and I love my little ones help me prepare the dinner table for our meal. Parker and Laney usually help me cook and set the table…Isaac snacks and Frankie baby–who knows what Frankie baby is doing! Trust me…he wasn’t washing dishes up there:) The dinner table is definitely one of my favorite times in our day…and to hear Frank’s blessing–where he repeats “Amen” twenty times before shouting one final “AMEN!”…ahhh–just another thing I treasure and know I will miss terribly one day. So thankful for these moments…and can’t wait to have another honey home to celebrate it with.

Hope you all have a happy Thursday:)



P.S. I have an allergy tip for those of you having serious allergies this season. I have horrible allergies in the spring and summer. Taking a dose of LOCAL honey and/or bee pollen can help tremendously!!! I take 4 pellets of bee pollen every morning with my OJ. It MUST be local honey or bee pollen to help…

I’m actually OFF my normal Zyrtec dose and riding it out all natural with bee pollen this year:). Much better for me. I bought mine at a local natural store. If you don’t have one…I guess you can just go look for pollen and lick it or something every morning. But you might want to take a healthy probiotic if you go that route;)

Amen. Our family gathered around the dinner table is my favorite part of everyday!

At least Frank actually prays. Sam yodles at EVERY meal. So strange…but I guess I should be thankful he is contributing 😉 If you continue to wear the apron a few more months you can celebrate Christmas in July. You look good barefoot and pregnant!
