Whoa... that second pic is a liiiitle freaky.. :<) And the lips.. did you make them? Did you get a mold and do candy melts? Please tell me that you did not do that, because if so, I will have to bear a grudge against you. And I don't like bearing grudges.. they are far too heavy. *sigh*
As for the noise.. there are times when I think I might just scream to add to it. But when my boy isn't here, the quiet is disturbing. I miss his noise, his dirt, his chaos. I would not have it any other way.
LOVE your quotes, as always...

Farmgirl Paints said...

well that's for sure. my girls chirp, chime and sing, from the second they wake up.

Jessica Heights said...

LOVE the photos...the lips are hilarious!

Yes, a house without children is *too* quiet...which is what I try to remember in the moments that I can't hear myself trying to hear myself think, LOL!

Heidi said...

Oh man, can not tell you how much I love these pics! Awesome.

Sophie said...

Don't know what the word quiet means, never heard it!

Great photos!

Comeca Jones said...

I get that quote. I complained a lot when mine were still home.Pick up your shoes! Dont slam the door!Who ate my leftovers!? *sigh* They grow up sooo fast. Truth is...What I wouldn't give to hear my screen door slam one more time.~Meme Enjoy it.

LOL. Love these (I say this every time I am here, please don't mind me...)

Ever since my FIL got a hearing aid that he could turn off any time he wants to I become less stressed out when we visit them...

Suki said...

Hehe. I love their fun lips.

Ocean Girl said...

I think it is the mom that makes the noise more than the kids;)

Love it...your house is the house to be at! Have a wonderful Sunday!

allenaim photography and design said...

have GOT to get me some of those lips...they are fabulous and your photos are SOO good!

...and I MUST say...a little quiet is nice once in awhile, but it would be so horrible to have utter silence without baby giggles and little boy growls.

Gigi said...

My house is always so loud - but I know that I will miss all the noise when he goes off to college.

Sarah Halstead said...

Yea I couldn't imagine life without kids. They are so fun! Cute photos.

myevil3yearold said...

When my kids are not in the house the quiet drives me insane. I hope to have the house that my kids and all of their friends hang out at.

Just Bits and Pieces said...

Ha ha! Love those lips!!!!!! And I love that scripture...

TechnoBabe said...

Kids have a way of seeing things in such an excited and vibrant way, it is impossible to have a dull life with kids around. Happy and full of life.

Veronica Lee said...

Quiet?!! Only for the first half of the day when the boys are in school.

LOL! Love those lips.

Have a blessed Sunday!

StarTraci said...

Let them come, indeed!

While I would occasionally love a moment of silence, I wouldn't want a quiet life. I love my favorite two noisemakers!

Great pics -- they're practically blowing kisses. Happy Sunday!

I have my questions about heaven and about Jesus. But children...Who would hinder a child? Love your heart.

Laurie Matherne said...

Good verse. I don't have kids but I work with kids 5 or 6 days a week. I get it. I love kids, too.

Gail said...

Love those lips...

And I really love the first quote, I've been a mom for 25 years, so my house hasn't been quiet in a long time. We wouldn't have it any other way!

Have a great rest of your Sunday!

hugs...

Lisa said...

This quote made me laugh so much! I had one of those days ~ Were I complained about my kids. AND then I felt really bad about it and posted about it all. Because you will never guess where they were going. . .and me complaining.

Ky said...

Kids are awesome! But I'd give almost anything for a day of quiet around here.

Unknown Mami said...

I'll tell you what, the new baby is here and my house is anything but quiet.

Liz said...

I beg to differ! I love my quiet, childless home. I wouldn't have it any other way. Love the pictures!
