War on Thumb Sucking… End of Week 4

Tuesday, February 28th, 2006

Yes, it has been the whole month of February. I forgot to put anything on their nails after Tuesday of last week until this Sunday, but they didn’t realize it and kept their thumbs/fingers out of their mouths. I think I’m going to start putting it on a little less each week, but still put some on for a little while. Not sure how long I’m going to keep it up. The bottle still looks like it’s been hardly used.

I think I’ll leave off updates for a while. I’ll let you know how it goes after a little while when I’m not putting it on anymore… if I remember.

Prayers for W Again

Tuesday, February 28th, 2006

I asked you to pray for W when she found out she had breast cancer. Well, her husband died this morning. There was no warning and at the moment, no one knows what happened. We were one of the first families called because she was really good friends with Grandma Anna and Jeremy’s mom. I took Amie and James up to visit with them about a week and a half ago and he seemed to be doing fine. It’s kind of a shock to her and she isn’t doing well at the moment with having bronchitis and a low white blood cell count, so please pray for her.

How Does God Write?

Monday, February 27th, 2006

Amie’s reading lesson was about the tabernacle and the ten commandments. It told how God wrote on the two stone tablets with His finger. She stopped and thought about it for a second, then said, “I always thought He wrote on the stones with one of those feather pens.”

Pictures from the Girls Sleepover

Monday, February 27th, 2006

I told you all about the youth sleepover back when I had it in January. It was great. Now I’m going to share the pictures from it with you. I’ve got a few other photos to share from other things, but that is for another day.

Tricky Cheese

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

We went to Fazoli’s after church this morning. AnnaBeth and Noelle shared a child’s pizza. Part of Noelle’s cheese came off. She picked it up and it swung back and stuck to her hand. She tried to lick it off and it came partially off, but swung up and was sticking to her fingers. She had to stick her fingers into her mouth four times before it released it’s grip and she was able to eat it. AnnaBeth thought it was funny so she pulled a string of cheese off her pizza. Unfortunately, the cheese decided to cooperate for her. She then refused to eat her pizza for about 10 minutes because her cheese wouldn’t stick to her. I told her she was being a silly girl and after a little while she decided her hunger needed taking care of, so she ate it.

Dream of Endtimes… Very Weird

Saturday, February 25th, 2006

I woke the other morning with an interesting dream still lingering in my head. It was so weird and vivid that I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. Okay, here it is, and I haven’t added or exaggerated any of it… (it’s a bit long)

War on Thumb Sucking… End of Week 3

Tuesday, February 21st, 2006

I have nothing to report. I’m continuing to put it on, but I haven’t seen anything this week. Not sure how long I’ll continue, but I want to make sure they don’t go back to doing it.

If you read the comments here, you may have seen that Erin said in a comment from my last post that she’s trying Mavala with her 3 yr old daughter and it isn’t working as well. Apparently her daughter is just licking it off. Yuck! Hey, Erin, maybe put it away until she’s a little older and then try again? Don’t know, but it might work. Did you try it to stop your older daughter’s nail biting too? Just wondering.

Anyway, that’s the report this week.

Keep Praying for Us

Monday, February 20th, 2006

Things are seeming to go smoothly for us so far. I contribute it to all the prayers that are being said on our behalf. Please continue to keep our situation in your prayers. I will give you all updates as soon as I feel free to. Thank you.

Sorry, so busy

Saturday, February 18th, 2006

We’re really busy right now. I’ll update you all soon. Didn’t want you to think I fell off the side of the earth.

War on Thumb Sucking… End of Week 2

Tuesday, February 14th, 2006

Still doing good. This week, I haven’t had any sign of them putting their thumbs/fingers in their mouths. I’ve watched AnnaBeth while sleeping slowly move her finger toward her mouth and then just before touching it to her mouth, she jerks it away. I’ve watched as Amie (also while sleeping) will put her hand up as if to put her thumb in her mouth and then pause for a second before tucking it under her chin. I haven’t seen a thing with Christine. Maybe next week, I’ll be able to report… nothing! Wouldn’t that be nice?
