I realized that I've neglected posting the excitement that is going on for both of the older boys lately. You'll see Isaac's below. But I have to post that Amadeus is having a fabulous year. He received all A's last 9 weeks, and I just received his progress report, and it looks like he'll be getting all A's this 6 weeks as well. I don't think it's because the school is easier. Amadeus has always been super smart. He always does well on tests and can talk about many different subjects with a great deal of knowledge. He is just terrible about homework. Since he knows the subject; feels homework is a waste of time. This has proven that he can do it; he will just have to take homework more seriously when we change schools, so that he can continue with a good GPA for college. But YAY for Amadeus!
Isaac's school is having a talent show. Included in this is various pieces of art work. He is working on a sword. He has been super excited about it, and his Dad and Step-Dad have been there to help him with it. I'll have to post a picture of the finished project. We are not sure if he is going to be able to get it turned in on time though. It supposed to go in on Thursday, but I emailed and asked for them to give him till Friday. We're all supposed to go to the temple tonight, so he won't be home to work on it, obviously.And he needs atleast one more day to finish. So pray with me. I know he'll be so dissapointed if he doesn't get to participate.

So, I went to find what Lil Red was up to, and found him up against a cranny with my huge honey bottle. He had managed to unscrew the lid, and his little sticky fingers were covered. And can you believe we just finished w/ getting cavaties filled a week ago! Talk about a sweet tooth, lol. Well atleast it was something edible :)

Lil Red and I made Bannana Pumpkin muffins this morning. If you want the recipe go to google and type in "Healthy Banana Muffins Recipe", it's on recipe zaar. We ended up making 12 muffins, 12 mini muffins, and 3 mini loaves. And the recipe says that it freezes well too. And they super healthy. If you don't count the cup of white sugar and the cup of brown sugar. LOL. And we had a very yummy breakfast. Daddy asked Lil Red if he helped make them and he replied quickly, "yes, I did!". He was so proud :)

We finally have a new roof on the house! Yay! No more leaks! At least not from the roof, lol. It was so nice to stay in bed last night when it started raining, and not worry about damage control. And the color that Big Red picked out is beautiful! Don't you think?
So I was thinking about the roof this morning and it's leaking and how that relates to us spiritually in our relationships. To me the leaks in the roof are like when you choose to be angry or take offense to someone, and refuse to see them for who they are. When you do that, you may have a roof over head, but you allow Satan access to your heart and he does the same thing that leaks do to the inside of a house. It causes mold, corrosion, and serious needs for re-sheet rocking :)
If we are seeing people for who they are, children of God, then when the rain comes, (people choosing to be ugly or not thinking before they say something, etc.), it will run off of our leak proof roofs to the ground doing no harm. Our spirit will stay warm and dry and sheltered and able to offer love and comfort to all those who need it from us :)
