Helen Crawls (and cries)

See my amazing 6 1/2 month old! I know it looks like I'm a mean mommy but I actually don't usually make her cry. Plus, the bottle makes everything alright...

She riseth also while it is yet night...

I hope you're compiling your lists for the "Door Buster Special, Don't Miss Out, 6 Hour Sale, One Day Only, Annual, Lowest Prices Ever, Hot Deals, Going Fast, Hurry in Now, Early Bird" Black Friday sales.

Or not.

(my favorite part is the two women in the background)

Is this what Proverbs 31 is talking about?

Lessons in Laundry

After hearing, reading, and talking about "vocation" and how God's will for me today is to simply take care of my home and children...

I spent yesterday morning doing all my weekend laundry & ironing.

See photo below.
Order, where chaos had once been. Notice the sweet girl in front.
Next I hopped onto my computer to get the beautiful photo
uploaded for you all and alas...

See photo #2.
Chaos, where order had once been!

As much as I wanted to blame 18 month old Lucy, I knew that if, instead of blogging about vocation, I had actually been "vocating" this would not have happened. Besides, putting myself in Lucy's shoes, if I were an adventurous little girl and I saw a seemingly endless row of freshly ironed clothes what would I do?

Even still, knowing all this, it took me some time to calm down about the hours of ironing lying crumpled on the floor.

Motor skills

Helen's got "reverse" down really well, but now what?

This Blog

This blog will simply be updates on the important and "unimportant" things that go on in the Phares family. We'd like to see many of our friend and family more, but since we all have pretty full lives and don't spend all our days "visiting" maybe this blog can at least give you a glimpse into our life.
