"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:
I high-lighted some of my favorite verses.
9 Like a thorn that goes into the hand of a drunkard is a proverb in the mouth of fools.
11 As a dog returns to his own vomit, So a fool repeats his folly.
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
For part of bible every day we read a chapter of proverbs today we read chapter 26 because it is the 26th.
We just got done with it. Here it is.

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?
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.

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.
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.
