We have a hilarious book called The Stinky Cheese Man And Other Fairly Stupid Tales . On the title page Jack (Jack and the bean stock) the narrator says
"I know. I know.
The page is upside down.
I meant to do that.
Who ever looks at that
dedication stuff anyhow?
If you really want to read
it you can always stand on your head."

Here is the introduction:

A long time ago people used to tell magical stories of wonder and enchantment. Those were called Fairy Tales. Those stories are not in this book. The stories in this book are almost Fairy Tales. But not quite. The stories in this book are Fairly stupid Tales. I mean what else would you call "Goldilocks and the three elephants"? This girl walking through the forest smells peanut porridge cooking. She decides to break into the elephants ' house, eat the porridge, sit in the chairs, and sleep in the beds. Bu when she gets in the house she can't climb up on baby elephants chair because it's to big. And she can't climb up on papa elephant's chair Because it's much to big. So she goes home. The End. And if you don't think that's fairly stupid you should go read "Little Red Running Shorts" or "The Stinky Cheese Man." In fact, you should definintely go read those stories now, Because the rest of the introduction just goes on and doesn't really say anything. I stuck it on the end here to fill up the rest of the page and make it look like I really knew what I was talking about So stop reading now. I mean it. Quit reading. Turn the page. If you read this last sentence, it won't tell you anything.

That is the introduction and here are my two favorite stories:

The Really Ugly Duckling:
Once upon a time there was a mother duck and a father duck who had seven baby ducklings. Six of them were regular-looking ducklings. The seventh was a really ugly duckling
Everyone used to say, "What a nice-looking bunch of ducklings - all except that one. Boy, he's really ugly."
The really ugly duckling heard these people, bu the didn't care. He knew that one day he would probably grow up to be a swan and be bigger and look better than anything in the pond.
Well, as it turned out, he was just a really ugly duckling. And he grew up to be just a really ugly duck.
The End.
The Other Frog Prince:
Once upon a time, there was a frog.
One day when he was sitting on his lily pad, he saw a beautiful princess sitting by the pond. He hopped in the water, swam over to her, and poked his head outof the weeds.
"Pardon me, O beautiful princess," he said in his most sad and patheitic voice. "I wonder if you could help me."
THe princess was about to jump up and run away, but she felt sorry for the frog with the sad and pathetic voice.
So she asked, "What can I do to help you, little frog?"
"Well," said the frog. "I'm not really a frog, but a handsome prince who was turned into a frog by a wicked witch's spell. And the spell can only be broken by the kiss of a beautiful princess."
The princess thought about this for a second, then lifted the frog from the pond and kissed him.
"I was just kidding," said the frog. He jumped back into the pond and the princess wiped the frog slime from her lips. The End.

Proverbs 26 has a lot of my favorite verses in it. One thing I like is that it tells how bad and worthless a fool is an then it says "Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him." and then it says "The lazy man is wiser in his own eyes than seven men who can answer sensibly."
I high-lighted some of my favorite verses.

1 As snow in summer and rain in harvest, So honor is not fitting for a fool. Like a flitting sparrow, like a flying swallow, So a curse without cause shall not alight.

3 A whip for the horse, A bridle for the donkey, And a rod for the fool’s back.

4 Do not answer a fool according to his folly, Lest you also be like him.

5 Answer a fool according to his folly, Lest he be wise in his own eyes.

6 He who sends a message by the hand of a fool cuts off his own feet and drinks violence.

7 Like the legs of the lame that hang limp Is a proverb in the mouth of fools.

8 Like one who binds a stone in a sling is he who gives honor to a fool.

9 Like a thorn that goes into the hand of a drunkard is a proverb in the mouth of fools.

10 The great God who formed everything gives the fool his hire and the transgressor his wages.

11 As a dog returns to his own vomit, So a fool repeats his folly.

12 Do you see a man wise in his own eyes? There is more hope for a fool than for him.

13 The lazy man says,“There is a lion in the road! A fierce lion is in the streets!”

14 As a door turns on its hinges, So does the lazy man on his bed.

15 The lazy man buries his hand in the bowl; It wearies him to bring it back to his mouth.

16 The lazy man is wiser in his own eyes than seven men who can answer sensibly.

17 He who passes by and meddles in a quarrel not his own is like one who takes a dog by the ears.

18 Like a madman who throws firebrands, arrows, and death

19 Is the man who deceives his neighbor, And says, “I was only joking!” (or "just kidding")

20 Where there is no wood, the fire goes out; And where there is no talebearer, strife ceases.

21 As charcoal is to burning coals, and wood to fire, So is a contentious man to kindle strife.

22 The words of a talebearer are like tasty trifles,And they go down into the inmost body.

23 Fervent lips with a wicked heart Are like earthenware covered with silver dross.

24 He who hates, disguises it with his lips, And lays up deceit within himself;

25 When he speaks kindly, do not believe him,For there are seven abominations in his heart;

26 Though his hatred is covered by deceit, His wickedness will be revealed before the assembly

27 Whoever digs a pit will fall into it, And he who rolls a stone will have it roll back on him.

28 A lying tongue hates those who are crushed by it, And a flattering mouth works ruin.

For part of bible every day we read a chapter of proverbs today we read chapter 26 because it is the 26th.

When my Aunt Weasy was two or three (She is almost 18 now) she collected a family of roly-polys. She played with them all morning, showed them to everyone. There was a Mommy roly-poly, and a Daddy roly-poly, and a baby roly-poly. Mom said that she built houses for them, and she kissed them, made beds for them, and made them go to the store, just a bunch of stuff like that. At noon, my grandma called her in the house for lunch so she set them on the ground ever so gently, as she smiled at them, and then can you guess what she did? She squished them went inside and ate!!!

Did you know the New Testament has about 300 chapters in it? Well my mom thought of a challenge: To read the new testament in 1 month 10 chapters a day, I'm doing it in fact today is my third day and I've all really read Mark chapter 2! I encourage you to start the New Testament challenge today!
Today while I was reading about the 30 silver coins that Judas Iscariot traded Jesus for I remembered a story my sister Deanna told me:
Once there lived a king in what was said to be the most beautiful kingdom ever. One day the king decided to have a paper posted all over the kingdom that told the villagers to come to his palace on a certain date and tell what they think he was worth.
So when that date came people came and told early and late some said "I would go over a million mountains and give up all my wealth for you Oh king!" others said things like "everything I own" or "Anything for you Oh great king" But when it came to a very poor looking man near the back of the line the king asked "And what do you think I am worth?" The man answered "29 pieces of silver"
"29 pieces of silver!?!?!? What makes you say such a low amount?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!" said the king in much fury.
"Are you worth more than my Lord Jesus Christ who was sold for 30
pieces of silver?” replied the man.

I forgot the rest of the story but what do you think he would do?

Ice Cream Cake - mint chocolate chip (makes 2)

First you take 2 boxes of mint chocolate chip ice cream. Set it out to soften a bit.
Get 2 springform pans out.
Crush 1 pack of oreos.
Put 1/3 of the crumbs in the bottoms of the pans.
Line the pans on the edge with whole oreos.
Scoop half of one box of the ice cream into each pan.
Spread more crumbs on top of the ice cream.
Make another layer of ice cream.
Decorate the top with the rest of the crumbs and whole oreos if you have any left.
Freeze until firm.

Warning: whole oreos on the top may make the cake hard to cut.

Other flavors will work too. What sounds good to you? I think chocolate sounds good! If you're having a Barbie birthday party or something, pink ice cream would look good.

In case you haven't noticed, on my sidebar there is a blogroll for homeschoolers. It's not mentioned in the sidebar, but you have to be Christian homeschooling kids. Here are the rules and instructions for joining:

  1. Members must be homeschooling Christian children.
  2. Your blog must be glorifying to God, and have nothing immodest or coarse. My parents will decide if each blog is appropriate.
  3. Members should be 7-14 years old.
  4. Ask your parents first.
  5. Have one of your parents email my mom with the name and url of your blog.
  6. My mom will email the blogroll code that you have to put in your template.
  7. After the code is on your blog, email again to confirm. Then we will add you to the blogroll!
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever
things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever
things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything
praiseworthy—meditate on these things. Philippian 4:8

I will set nothing wicked before my eyes;
I hate the work of those who fall away;
It shall not cling to me.
Psalm 101:3

I have a stat counter on my blog (A Stat Counter tells how many people look at your blog, how long they stay etc...) I was looking at a diagram that shows what country the people that look at my blog live in. (I think it's kind of funny sometimes) I got 79 from the USA, 4 from the UK, 4 from Canada, 3 from Australia, 1 from Madagascar, and 1 from Singapore. Isn't that cool?

Have you ever seen a mother gerbil being carried away by her nursing babies? Our gerbils did that once, it was hilarious!!! I wish I had a picture but I don't.

Rachael loves her new brother. She is always hugging him and kissing him, and when he takes naps on Mom's bed she climbs up and touches his face very gently. But when he was first born and she saw his umbilical cord she asked my mom "Belly-button? momma?" In a very puzzled voice.
And just yesterday she was kissing his eyes, nose, mouth, and tummy, but when it came to his belly-button mom jokingly said "Aren't you going to kiss his belly-button?" Rachael replied with her sign for yucky where she held her hand on the side of her mouth and makes a yucky face. Rachael was just playing with "Baby" and he started to cry, so she sang to him to make him stop. I guess I will have to change my blog title, but don't worry I'll leave the link the same.
