Cute Quotes


Last night Isaiah told us girls that Daddy took the light bulb out of the light that ‘flashes on the flag’, because it ‘ska-blowdid’   exploded 😉

Jessica was walking through the library when she heard a little boy’s ‘gun’ go off, so she decided to humor him and fell down ‘dead’.  Isaiah crawled on top of her and when Jessica said she was dead, he replied, “huh-uh!  You’re smah-ling!”  smiling

So she declared that she was dead again and put on a straight face (with a tongue hanging out).  She peeked just in time to see him intently looking at her stomach.

“I see you breathing!”  😀

 This was from about six years ago when Charissa was Isaiah’s age (4)…

   Charissa was looking at the dictionary and found a picture of some kind of lizard. When she saw it she said, “Ugh!  A zlander!”  (salamander)

    Hi! As a “fellow GAPS dieter” I was curious as to what a “normal” menu looks like in your family.:) I don’t know if it’s this way with you all, but for me cooking ideas from an outside source are always welcome, especially when inspiration refuses to burn from the inside source (my brain, that is).:)
    Enjoyed your post; no surprise there!

      Hi Mikell! Thanks for commenting 🙂 A normal days menu might look like this:
      breakfast: fruit smoothies and eggs. Sometimes fruit with that. On Saturdays we have pancakes instead of the smoothies.
      lunch: any leftovers to be found. We usually make enough at supper for that evening and the next day’s lunch.
      supper: (I’ll give tonight’s as an example) roast (and chicken since we didn’t have enough roast), cooked carrots, butternut squash, and green beans.

      And (too often probably) sometimes we’ll have dessert too…like tonight is fresh blueberries with nuts and whipped cream 🙂

      We usually have 4 snacks a day too. One in the morning (a carrot), two in the afternoon (a salad, fruit with nut butter or nuts and dried fruit are a few) and before bed everybody has yogurt with fruit.

      If you look in our recipes section we have some GAPS legal recipes…and we will still be posting more too!

      Hope this helps 🙂 I know what you mean by “frying the brain” (at least that is what I call it)….hard to come up with new ideas and such! 😀

        Ummm…Susannah…I don’t eat fried brain 😀 Hehe! Just had to tease! I’ll eat gizzards, livers, and hearts (if I have to) but no brains, please!

        Your crazy oldest sister 😀
