The Newest Brazier arrived sooner than expected.

And we named him Sherman.

Ok, this is not to be misunderstood...

because Rob is not a serious gamer, but he does have a tendency to get lost in his Call of Duty game. The other night he called out to me, "Well, the game says that we can't quit until all of the Germans are driven from Russian soil, so you might not want to wait up for me."

Haha, this is all in good fun, Rob. You know I don't think you're a nerd.

What did I get for Mother's Day?

Rob got me two wonderful hanging baskets. A fushia and a basket with cool little purple flowers that he said reminded him of me and Olivia. They're currently hanging on my front porch getting some nice rain.

My Father-in-Law got me a mini-14 rifle. No, I'm not kidding.

He got one for my Mother-in-Law too. Here's the proof:

Flowers and guns. What a fulfilling Mother's Day. :)

Some photo updates.

Olivia colors Easter Eggs with Papa.

Olivia plays soccer in the back yard.

Olivia wonders why I'm photographing her while she eats dinner.

Olivia's first experience baking with Mom. Yum!

It was a close race, but in the end Protestants win again...

Luther defeats Pope by 10 votes in Republican race for 61st District (Today's news from our local paper.)

Hat Tip to Mary, my Mother-In-Law.

And, the BOC agrees with me...

For those who have a Reader's Edition of the Book of Concord handy (the one released before the stupid political recall) turn to page 345. Can anyone tell me where to find a digital copy of this page so I can link it? And read along with me...

The Third Commandment

You shall sanctify the holy day.

What does this mean?
Answer: We should fear and love God so that we may not despise preaching and His Word, but hold it sacred, and gladly hear and learn it.

And in the nice little picture which looks like a Medieval woodcutting print, there is Martin Luther preaching to his congregation on Sunday, pointing to Christ on the cross. And right in the second row: A mom and her toddler-aged child.

I'm not gloating... really I'm not. (just poking fun Jacque and Andy)

2 good reasons to drink wine while nursing

In preparation for our new baby on the way I'm going to share the two reasons why I occasionally drink wine while I'm nursing, even though I'm not supposed to.

1. Communion.

2. (And I'm full of crap, but I thought this was worth sharing) Babies like it.

Hat Tip to a Mama from my message board: Mollie Greene.
