I never really considered myself a phobic. Sure, I'm afraid of being in small, dark spaces and I despise spiders, too. But recently I found out that I really, really have an unhealthy fear of pressure cookers.

What phobia would that be?

I need help.

Come on baby, boil my water

I am happy to report that my water boiler is working now. Guess who fixed it? Hetee!

He's usually good at that sort of thing but has been so busy lately that I didn't want to bother him with it so I asked a young man in our church. But that guy took it apart and then forgot about it so Hetee tweaked a couple things, put it back together and it worked! He got a smug look on his face and mumbled something to the effect of, "You should have just asked me to do it in the first place." I don't know if he actually knew what he was doing or if there was a certain amount of luck involved. Either way, after 5 years of marriage, he still impresses the heck out of me sometimes.

Thanks, Sweetie, for all the nice things you do for me.

Oh yeah, and I know you secretly read my blog.

I love you!!!

Today Nate and I were making hand shadows on the wall in my bedroom. Nate had been playing on the computer a lot lately but I didn't really give it much thought until he said, "Mommy, click on Kenny to see what kind of hand shadow he makes."

That's it! No more computer for a while!

Today was FUN! A bunch of my g12 ladies and I went to visit the ladies of our mission church in Hutul, a town about a 45 minute car ride away (but our taxi made it in 20--that was NOT the fun part, by the way.)

The reason it was such a great trip is because we went to visit a lady there who just had twin boys! We brought stuff to eat and lots of gifts for the mom of the twins and also for the wife of the leader of the church there who also had a baby boy a week before Kenny was born. Then as we were eating and fellowshipping 3 more moms (we ended up splitting the gifts 5 ways and were able to bless everybody!) came by and two of the brought their babies, both boys! One of my g12 ladies brought along her 16-day old baby girl and I had Kenny. The lady who didn't bring her baby had a girl. So, there were 6 babies in all, ranging in age from 16 days to 5 months. Boy, were we busy! But it was a great time to encourage and get to know one another--and each other's new babies!

I had a cute picture of all 6 babies lined up but I'm having trouble uploading it. I'll try again later.
