PostSubject: Soupy surprise (disaster)   Thu Dec 31, 2009 3:15 pm

I look about the kitchen with wide eyes, wondering where I went wrong. With just a quick scan of the room I can see the catastrophe I’ve caused. Across the counters is a splatter of a strange looking mixture that looks nothing like the soup it was supposed to be; not to mention the blackened pot still smoking on the floor. I scratch my head thinking I didn’t leave the kitchen for that long but then again…maybe I did.

I plug my nose as the stench reaches me then I rush to the door shutting it quickly, hoping my wife Islandbabe did not smell that. After all, the soup was supposed to be a surprise.

I take one more look at the mess sighing softly before rolling up my sleeves and getting cleaning tools: several rags, a pail of water, and soap. I whistle a tune softly as I clean the counters first waiting for the pot to cool down before touching it. I carefully mop the floor up hoping the smell leaves soon otherwise Babe would know for sure what happened.

I stand by the door surveying my work before slipping out the door with the recipe box in my hands hoping to find an easier recipe. Mumbling softly I set the box down seeing that the soup I attempted was the easiest of all.

I sniff the air smelling the burnt food mixed with the smell of soap then look up the stairs to our room wondering if my wife smells it yet; hoping she hasn’t. I lean back on the couch closing my eyes softly folding my arms trying to decide what to do next.

The day has been a good one, the children are now taking their mid afternoon nap after playing outside in the snow. Soon I will need to be getting them up for their snack then I know when Lemuel sees the fresh snow he will want to go back outside to play again. However I will need to make sure that he has warm food in his tummy and that his clothes are dry from this mornings romping.


As I take the last of the fresh clothing toward Jhavanna's room I can see the wind beginning to pick up outside the huge bay window at the end of the hall. I will keep a close eye on the weather, don't need my little man out there in bad atmospheric conditions. Thus knowing if it gets too bad I will put together games for the children to play inside.

After securing the clothing in the drawer I pause to watch my beautiful little girl sleep. I leave her room quietly make my way to baby J's room to check on him. I peek my head in finding him resting soundly laying on his tummy legs pulled up under him and sucking on his thumb.

I head back down the hall stopping at Lemuel room open the bedroom door slowly finding him nestled under his covers sound asleep. I exit his room closing the door gently then make my way to my room to catch up on some reading.

Reading relaxes me thus knowing soon the house will be filled with laughter and a great deal of noise. *smile thinking about my children*. *giggle thinking that my husband makes the most noise of them all *

Passing the stairs my senses are filled with a scorching smell, my heart racing thinking that the possibility that our home is on fire and thus I must gather my children get them to safety. Begin to dash down the staircase to check out the situation and to summons Anna to
help with the children realizing that the house isn't filling up with smoke that the fire must be contained in one area of the house. So with this maybe just maybe it can be extinguish without further damage.


Skipping the top squeaky step my feet descend the stairs with my hand sliding down the oak banister as my attention is pulled to the figure resting comfortably upon the sofa. With my foot pausing in mid air my eyes widen seeing Malion's ostentatious position.

I sigh opening my eyes then covering my nose as the smell has gotten stronger. I sit up then lean forward with my arms resting on my knees shaking my head, I guess I better find Babe before she smells this.

I look up to the stairs, jumping slightly as I see my beautiful bride standing there. I smile and wave, trying to look calm as I see her wide eyes. I stand up quickly striding up the steps to her, trying not to choke from the smell. I stand on the step just below hers as I say, Hello dear, I think I might have ummm burnt something.

I reach up kissing her gently before saying, I think I better open some windows. I walk down the stairs, opening all the windows I can on the first floor. I look up to Babe worriedly, Do you think the children can smell it? I don’t know what it would do to them.

I'm flabbergasted by the incontinent of my husband as he lingers up the sofa resting as the house fills up with smoke. Almost chuckling as he jumps slight with my presents upon the stairwell.

My eyes fixate on him as he ascent the stairs stopping on the step right below me. As I listen to him my mind rushing as I hold my stance not locution the obvious. I wonder if he himself had any insight of what may have swallowed my mind when I smelled the scorch.

Place my hands upon his biceps as he reaches up kissing me gently, my eyes follow him as he descends down the stairs thus beginning to open all the windows on the lower floor. Lowering my foot to the step my body shifting slightly with my body shivers as the winter air floods our
home.


Turn my head looking back up the stairs as my arms fold about me my hands gripping my arms. Memory instills as I had just checked on the children with their doors perched open just enough to be able to hear them if they awoke.

Step down one step saying, Malion the house is becoming a chill rather quickly don't you think it would be best if we ….. if we forced on getting the smoldering substance out of the house so it doesn't continue to fill our house with such awful scent? In addition to we need to make sure that the frigid air doesn't absorb our whole home.

Waddling down the steps make my way to the lien closet pulling out several huge blankets, a hammer and some nails to anchor at the top of the stairway to keep the gelid air from submerging the upper portion of our home.

Pausing, turning to Malion replying; Do close these windows as soon as possible and take some of the other blankets closing off the kitchen so that smoke doesn't continue to filter about. I'll go check on the children once again making sure they are warm and put a flame to their respective fireplaces.

I smile softly watching Babe waddle down the steps. As I see her pull out blankets, nails and a hammer I stride quickly to her taking those items in my arms saying, You shouldn't be handling these love.

I tuck the blankets under my right arm, I'll hang these up right away and then help you with the fires. I reach my left arm around her gently helping her up the steps to the top of the staircase. I smile to her reassuringly as I quickly secure the blankets to keep the warmth in upstairs, I'll be back baby, be careful. I kiss her tenderly holding her as tight but gentle as I can.

I chuckle then slide down the banister turning into the kitchen releasing more of the smell into the lower floor. I hold my breath as I find the source of the smell. I bundle it up the take it outside a good bit away from the house.

Turning back to the house I shiver slightly as it has gotten quite cold outside. I enter the front door feeling the warmth of the house as I run up the stairs, carefully going through the blankets. I make sure the blankets are set perfectly before I go looking for my wife, hoping she hasn't over done it. I chuckle finding her in one of the childrens rooms.

Looking up with my eyes filled with tenderness looking to Malion smiling pleasantly to him while he takes the blankets and other items from me. I agree that he should hang the blankets as my tummy might hence my ability to do so. Watch him tuck the blankets under his arm as he left arm extends around me I lean gently into him. I smile meekly to him as we head to the stairs, my hand gracing his back squeezing his shirt trying to keep upright


Before leaving the lien closet I reach over pulling another towel from the shelf in order to cover my mouth attempting to keep the smoke from filtering into my lungs and possibility harming my unborn child. I know I should soak the towel in water however there isn't enough time. I must return to the upper floor check on my babies. I'm slightly relieved knowing that my hubby is going to take care of the matter at hand. Thus knowing he shouldn't have let it get so far out of hand in the first place.

Upon reaching the top step I turn notice that the first floor has almost cleared of the smoke with a cloud still linger about the ceiling while it continues to slowly etch toward the window. The stint that remains is so over bearing and atrocious.

Shifting my weight with the baby bouncing inside as I hold the blankets helping Malion as he hangs them at the top of the staircase. Meet his kiss with my hands perched upon his shoulder feeling his muscles flex under my fingers.

Smiling sweetly to him as he finishing the task, I slide one of the blankets aside seeing him descend using the banister instead of the steps causing me to chuckle.

Hearing the wind whip through the bare trees I say to Malion: If you go out make sure you bundle up it's horrid out there. I remain watching him disappear from my sight, move from the top of the stairs turning walking down the hall to baby J's room.

Open his door finding him sleeping soundly, slip off my slippers tiptoeing further in and over to the fireplace placing another log on the fire bringing it to blaze. Stand walk over to his crib smiling wide as seeing the position in which he has gotten himself. I know I left this tiny lad on his back however he has turned himself over laying on his tummy. His legs are tucked up under him with his head upon his hands and his right thumb being suckled. Carefully lean in taking hold of his blue blanket covering him. Without disturbing move my hand caressing his blonde hair and softly kiss him.

Walk gently leavong his room decide to skip putting my slippers on and continue on down the hall to Jhavanna's room. Slipping into her room I find that the fire within is alight needing no additional logs. Out of my peripheral I see movement thinking that she might be waking instead find her snuggling her teddy bear closer. Still amazed that these perfect little people came from me, they are such wonderful delights to watch grow and experience things for the first time.

As I caress lovingly down her back I hear the whimpering of baby J along with my attention being drawn to the light seeping in through the crack of the wooden blinds. I open the left shutter seeing that the drifting snow flakes are huge and my eyes widen watching them swirling rapidly about.

Check on Beth one last time before dashing back down the hall to Jarrod's room finding him sitting up in his crib with his blanket over his head. I stand watch him for a few seconds as he pulls it off his head then covering himself. I chuckle out loud catching his attention and he stops smiling wide and stands up reaching for me. I walk over picking him up kiss he cheek and whisper: "hi little man I see you're nap time has ended.”

As I carry him into the hall I see Lemuel standing in his doorway half asleep. I walk down to him take his hand in mine help guide him to the library when I hear Beth bouncing in her crib. I place Jarrod on the bear skin rug tell him to stay put as I got get his sister.

Entering Beth's room her little eyes light up seeing her mommy and her bouncing quickens. I walk over to her picking her up kissing her cheek softly saying: "Hi baby girl you ready to go play with your brothers?” Carry Beth to the library her little figure squirming, anguish to get to her brothers and the toys that await.

As we enter the library my force is diverted upon the figure climbing the book case, I have to restrain myself from screaming out. Place Beth on the bear rug then walk over gently pulling Jarrod from the shelf hugging him tenderly telling him that he knows that's off limits. I place him next to Beth and Lemuel along with several toys for them to play with.

As I stand to go sit in the rocking chair Lemuel ask if I could read them a story, smiling lovingly to him I reply: “I would love to read you a story. Which story would you like?”

Lemuel points to the top shelf of the bookcase and I think should have let Jarrod continue on his adventure he could have gotten it for me. I cackles without realizing replying alright The Princess and Prince it shall be. I scoot the step up over in order to reach the book pull it down then sit down in the rocker begin reading.

Begin reading the book.....
One upon a time there was the most handsome prince, he was the ruler of all his land. One day the prince decided that he wanted to adventure about the country with his best mate Prodi. Prince Cody walked down the marble hall of his massive castle to his best mates room.

Pause reading as the french doors open to the Library, look up as I hear Malion chuckling. I nod to him as he winks then exits.

I smile softly seeing Babe and the children together, with Babe reading them a book. I motion for her to continue as I slip back out searching through the house for stuffed animals.

I return to the library with an armful of animals of all shapes and sizes. After sitting down next to the children I pull out a lion from the pile of stuffed animals that i set at Babes feet. I wink at my wife lovingly then hold up the lion as handsomeness and a mountain lion as Prince Cody. I slide onto my tummy then crawl in the middle of the children, tickling them with the lions.

As I listen to Babe I act out all she says in her story, adding sound effects as I go. Eventually I drop the stuffed animals picking up Jarrod with my hands and setting him on my shins before I lift him with my legs high above me. I smile up to him laughing but still listening to Babe as she tells the story of Cody.

I look up to Babe from my upside down position grinning at her innocently as I set a giggling Jarrod on the floor. I scoot up slowly sliding under the rocking chair, making faces at the children, causing them to laugh more.

I stop as I see the rocking chair stop, knowing Babe knows I'm doing something. I peek my head out from under the rocking chair smiling up to my wife innocently.

I wave to her chuckling softly before lifting my hand up caressing her hand then to her tummy smiling as I feel our little one being so active. I turn my head winking at the children before I gently poke her tummy, hoping for a poke back from our unborn baby. Smiling to my love tenderly, I feel our baby poke my finger back, Fiesty one ehh? Must take after her mommy.

After crawling back from under the rocking chair I roll onto my stomach propping my head on my hands, looking up to Babe with a smile on my lips as the children decide to hop on my back for a ride like Prince Cody.

I lift myself to my hands and knees, making sure Lem, Jarrod and Beth all have firm grip on my shirt. Then i slowly crawl around the rocking chair being careful not to drop any of the riders as I circle around the room.

Continue reading....

Reaching his best mates room he pauses at the doorway peeking, Prince Cody reaches in his pocket pulling out a piece of parchment rolling it into small balls then tosses at Prodi stifling his laughter as he ducks behind the wall. *take time to explain that parchment is paper*

Prince Cody enters Prodi's room laughing while he approaches, extending his arm the two hug while their other hand is in a firm handshake.

Lemuel interrupts asking: Mommy they are twins like J and Bethie?


I smile warmly replying: Not quite my love, they aren't twins.

The two mates decide that taking a trip is a great idea and they go to Nivodi's room to see if he wishes to join them on their adventure.

Lemuel's eyes widen squealing: they are three, He lowers his head trying to think of the word.

I reach over lifting his chin replying: they are triplets my love, somewhat like you, Jarrod and Beth; however these three were born at the same time.

Lemuel points to my tummy asking: Is there twin ... tryplates there.

Chuckling I reply: I don't believe so, just one this time. wink to him Not sure your daddy could handle triplets.

Malion returns with an abundance of stuffed animals as I continue to read the story he acts out the story line. His acting out the story line becomes more of romping I stop reading closing the book with my index finger between the pages.

While Malion takes the children for a ride upon his back I skim the remaining pages in the book while keeping a close eye on my babies making sure no one takes a tumble. I smile as the children laugh having a good time. Thus I know they must be getting hungry and possibly need to use the facilities since they did just wake from their nap.

After a few trips around the room, my arms and legs begin to tire. I pause in front of the rocking chair, smiling up to my wonderful wife, I think the children are tired love. I wink at her, trying to hide my owm weariness as I lower myself down to the ground letting all the children off.

I chuckle noticing Lem has his thinking look on his face, knowing he's thinking of something. Meanwhile, Jarrod and Beth seam to be hungry and tired all at once, as well as doing a little dance showing their need for the restroom and soon.

After looking up to my wife, I stand up carefully picking Jarrod up with one arm and Beth with the other. I do believe these two need a little break. I'll take them so you can rest dear.

I walk carefully to the facilities letting Beth go first, saying, Ladies first. Then after she is done I let Jarrod go. After making sure their hands are washed I return to the room saying, I think I had better check the lower floor. I gently kiss my beautiful wife, holding her face in my hands then caressing her tummy softly, I love you.

Leaving once again I step through the blankets immidiately feeling the chill the open windows have brought but no longer smelling the mess that was in the kitchen. I slide down the banister quickly closing all the windows, which was hard to do as my fingers were freezing cold.

I stoke all the fires I can on the lower floor trying to heat it back up in case Babe wanted to eat. After moving into the kitchen I look in the pantry. A slow frown comes to my face as I see the amount of food stored there. I begin counting amounts, knowing there won't be enough this harsh winter for my ever growing family.

I sigh softly, knowing i will need to take a trip to town soon, before it gets any colder outside. I leave the pantry slowly walking to the living room fire where I warm my hands looking upstairsm wondering how my wife will take the news.

After I am warmed completely I straighten my face, adding a small smile as I don't want to worry her tonight. I run up the stairs, through the curtains only feeling a slight change in temperature.

......
Smile warmly rocking gently in the rocker as Malion plays with the children the library filled with their laughter. Thus even with the mishap it has been a good morning. I love watching my children play even the biggest kid of them all.

Shaken from my lost in thought as I hear Malion, I turn my force to him seeing him still with all fours on the floor. After he lowers his body to the floor the children slide off him begin their potty prance. To my relief that he wasn't covered with excretion from all that romping.

As Malion exclaims that he thinks the children are tired, I do believe he is meaning himself as the little ones have had their afternoon nap. I nod agreeing with him that the children should be taken to the lavatory immediately.

My eyes follow Malion as he stands picking up Jarrod and Jhavanna with him expelling that he'll take care of this matter while I rest. Thus I nod in agreement smiling pleasingly as he carries our babies from the room. As they disappear from sight I turn my attention to Lemuel seeing that look upon his tender face with his eyes searching for words.

I reach over caress Lemuel's cheek asking; What is on your mind young man?

Lemuel deep blue eyes peer my direction as his lips quiver with his words skipping outward. “Mommy….“

Yes Lemuel?, reply in a mellow tone. I can see within his beautiful eyes and his facial expression has gone from hilarity to vexation. I lay my hand on the small of his back encouraging him to come sit on my lap so we may talk.

Lemuel allows my hand to guide him to me, he climbs upon my lap laying his ear against my tummy. He looks up to me with tears forming in his brilliant blue eyes asking; “Mommy, are you........”

He pauses as Malion returns to the room with Jarrod and Jhavanna. I kiss him lovingly on the cheek while caressing his dark hair as I whisper to him; We can continue our private chat in a few minutes, I promise.”

I know my little man has something embedded on his mind, I must find a way to get him along so whatever is plaguing him can be dealt with. Smile as I come up with the prefect opportunity to have some free time with Lemuel. I shall give Jarrod and Beth puzzles and/or crayons so they may color along with a snack while Lemuel and I go prepare lunch.

I pleasingly meet Malion's kiss after he informs me that he is going to go check on the condition of the main floor. I reply, Love you too baby we will be here waiting for your return.

With the library doors ajar feel the frigid air rush in I ask Lemuel, Will you please close those doors for mommy? He leaps off my laps; dashes to the french doors, I smile to him as he struggles to close them as I continue on over placing another log on the fire. I giggle lowly as I hear him grunt pulling them closed I ask: "Do you need my assistance?"

Lemuel squeals; "Mes got its."

Hearing the doors click I know he has managed to close the doors as I look up I see him coming over my way smiling wide saying; " I did it!"

I smile replying; "Indeed you did, you are so very strong. Lemuel would you like to get some parchment, crayons and puzzles off the shelf and take them over to the crafting table?"

Lemuel streaks across the room his voice singing; "Me will."

As Lemuel places the items on the table I stand, walk over placing my hand around Jarrod's and Jhavanna's smiling tenderly to them asking: You ready to do some puzzles and coloring after you have a snack? Make sure they are seated while placing a elongated bib upon them before moving to the other side of the room to retrieve their afternoon snack. I pull out a chair for Lemuel saying; 'Here you go sir would you like some milk with your cookie?'

Lemuel snickers as he takes his seat replying: “Yes please, thank you.”

I pour Lemuel a cup of milk then move to Jarrod asking; And how about you sir would you like some milk with your cookie?'

Jarrod laughs replying; Yes me want milk.

After pouring his milk I move over to Jhavanna saying; Good day ma'am would you like some milk with your cookie?

Jhavanna cackles replying; “Yes please mommy.”

I contemplate letting them use water colors however figure when leaving them alone with their father they'd be wearing more then the parchment. I make sure to hide the water colors while the children are preoccupied with their snack. I move over to the window looking out to see if the weather has cleared so that they may go outside to play. My findings are not that of which I had hoped, the drifts are several feet deep with the snow not letting up. The wind howling across the land flicking the snow about, looking up to the gray sky knowing it's only bound to worsen.

Turning as I hear the door open see Malion with a small smile plastered upon his face however his eyes showing concern. I'm not sure why or if this has to do with the stint of the main floor and if there is possibly smoke damage that needs to be cleaned.

I smile to Malion asking the obvious; "Dear, how is the main floor? Did you close all the windows? Has the main floor warmed?"
Before he can answer I continue; "Lemuel and I are going to go fix us all some lunch if you would so kindly stay here watch the little ones."They are having their snack we have already laid out puzzles plus parchment with crayons for them to use."

Stepping closer to Babe I caress her cheek softly, All is well on the main floor love. It's warming up quickly and should be fine for you to go down there. I've closed all the windows and the smell seems to be gone. I can watch the children we're going to practice their coloring.

I pause, assessing my wife making sure she feels well. As long as you are careful honey. I can help you down the stairs if you need it.

As I wait for Babe's reply I watch Jarrod and Beth with a smile on my face. I chuckle as they both eat their cookie and drink their milk, knowing they love their mommy's cookies.

I reach over ruffling Lem's hair saying, Can you watch over your mommy for me? I need my little man to take care of her while you're both making us some lunch. I wink at Babe kissing her cheek.

As Lemuel tugs on my arm I smile sweetly replying ; One moment little man, we are going.

Sashay to the edge of the chair, my hands firmly on the wooden arms of the rocker, rocking it forward coming to a stand. Move over place my hand tenderly upon his cheek kiss Malion affectionately as I whisper to him; Oh I do believe Lemuel and I will be fine, our little man needs to have a private chat.

My hand slides softly and slowly off Malions cheek as I wonder over kiss Jarrod and Beth letting them know that Lemuel and I are going downstairs to make lunch and daddy will be here to entertain them. I chuckle thinking what the possibilities are and to whom will be watching who.

As I walk past Malion my right hand caresses along him while Lemuel comes over taking hold of my hand pulling me toward the doors, I grin telling him I'm coming.

We leave the library making sure to leave the doors slightly open for air circulation. As we reach the stairs Lemuel looks up to me saying; “I help you mommy.”

Placing one hand on the railing with my other in Lemuel's I reply; “Thank you Lemuel with your help I know I'll be alright.”

As we slowly descend the stairs my mind flashes back to my babies in the library and my husband hoping he doesn't find the water colors thus knowing I would return finding them in complete disarray. Knowing it goes without say what the condition of the library would be in beyond my babies.

We reach the bottom step begin making our way to the kitchen when I stop in the living-room checking for smoke damage seeing some I know that this must be cleaned. I shake my head as I move over picking up a log from the last few from the once large pile. Placing the log on the fire I wonder if there is still the large pile near the back porch that Jacob had supplied.

Lemuel and I enter into the kitchen my eyes widen as I see the mess that lingers (sigh), Lemuel tugs on my hand asking; What we makin'?

Knowing what his favorite food is I reply; How about some sandwiches and I'll make some chips. Sound good to you?

Lemuel eyes brighten replying; Can.. c....c May I help?”

He rubs his tummy giggling I loves chips and beefy sandwiches.

Yes you may help I think I'll have you do most of the work if that's alright with you. I reply

He squeals; I can, I can handle it....

We can talk while we fix lunch okay, would you mind first getting a shirt full of potatoes from the pantry, I reply

Lemuel replies; I can do, he blushes then says; I mean yes ma'am

He proudly walks to the pantry to gather the shirt full of potatoes as he appears back in the door way with potatoes overflowing from his shirt. I chuckle thinking he might have over done it with the potatoes however he did do as I asked. I motion for him to take them to the sink so that they may be washed. Lemuel stands on his tip toes dumping the potatoes into the sink with a few falling to the floor. After he empties all the potatoes into the sink he bends down picking up the ones that dropped as he says; I can clean them.

I reply; Yes, if you so wish; you may do so, how about sliding the step over so you can reach better.

Lemuel nods in agreement as he smiles wide strolling over, grunting as he picks up the small steps.

Lemuel places the step against the cabinet then climbs up placing his tiny hand on the cast iron handle begins pumping the handle till the water comes to a full flow. He giggles as some of the water splashes him then he begins washes the potatoes clean.

I place a towel on the counter for him to place the clean potatoes so he doesn't unnecessarily wash the same potatoes repeatedly. Move over gathering the bread, meat and a knife from the drawer taking them back to the table while Lemuel continues to clean the potatoes. After placing the items on the table I go get a pot so we can fry up those potatoes making chips. As I go to bend down to get the pot from withing the cabinet pain riddles throughout my body causing me to pause.

Lemuel leaps down from the stoop saying; “I'm all done mommy, what's next........mommy? Mommy you oskay?

I reply: Yes baby, mommies alright just a twitch would you please get this pot for me then the lard from the pantry while I get the potato cutter?

I slide out of the way for Lemuel to get the pot having him place it on the table next to the other items as I open the drawer pulling out the potato cutter. Lemuel dashes off to the pantry to get the lard as I gather up the clean potatoes moving them to the table.

I take a seat with him returning with the container of lard asking him; Would you now please get a big dipping spoon?

Lemuel squeals; Yes ma'am.

He swings the spoon around as he carries it back placing it upon the table next to the pot then scoots out a chair, takes a seat asking; What me can do now?

I smile to him replying; Take the lid off the lard, then take the big spoon scoop three huge spoon fulls putting the lard into the pot.

Lemuel giggles; Oskay me can do.

Watch him struggle handling the huge spoon shoving it deep within the lard with the container almost flipping over his eyes widen as he manages to keep it upright.

As he bring up a heaping spoonful he ask; Is this right mommy?

I reply; Yes that's perfect, only two more to go.

He moves the spoon carefully over to the pot with most of the lard sliding off the spoon from the massive weight. He smiles pleases as he watches this happen then moves the spoon back to the lard. As he struggle getting another spoonful his facial expression show it all; biting his bottom lip, his eyes intense, the muscles in his little face powerful.

As the lard releases he almost losing control of the spoon with a tad of the lard flipping over his head landing on the counter behind us. His eyes widen thinking he is in trouble; finding I can't control myself begin laughing, With my laughing he soon realizes he isn't in trouble, he cackles as he taps the spoonful of lard into the pot.

I look over seeing how much lard is now in the pot saying; Lemuel, you did such a wonderful job we aren't going to need that third spoonful.

Smiling he replies; oskay whats ya wants me to do now?


I reply; Now we need to move the pot with the lard over to the fireplace. Would you like to try?

Lemuel leaps to his feet answering; Yes, me can do.

I reply: alright first move the melt hanger out from the fire using the clip rod, be very careful not to get too close and don't touch the melt hanger.

I watch him closely as he picks up the clip rod moving it into the fireplace with the flames blazing. He slowly moves the clip rod closer to the hanger touching it several times as he almost drops the clip rod. I respond; You are doing wonderfully.

Lemuel replies; this is tricy!

Yes it is tricy *tricky*, you can do it, I reply

After several attempts he get the hanger swung out places the pot upon the hanger turning to ask what to do next with me instructing him to use the rod to move the hanger back into the fireplace so that the lard can heat up. He sets down the rod, comes back over to the table slowly slides the pot to the edge groaning as he handles the heavy pot. He manages to pick up the pot of lard with both hands struggles to place it upon the hook on the hanger. His little hands shake as he picks up the rod pushing the pot / hanger into the fireplace.

He turns returning to his seat saying; That was heaby but me strong, stronger than daddy. He flexes his arm, I reach over fill his muscle saying; Oh indeed you are, you're very strong giggle yes I do you believe you just might be stronger than daddy.

His blue eyes sparkle with delight with the wonderful job he has done while thinking about being stronger than his daddy. I speak up saying: Now we must cut this potatoes so we can put them into the pot once the lard is heated / ready. I'll do one then you can give it a try.

Lemuel watches how I put the potato in bring over the top pushing the potato down through the cutter. As I raise the cutter showing the sliced potato he squeals; WOW.... Me turn?

I move the potato cutter over in front of him as he picks up a potato ready to give it a try. He smiles as he places the potato into the cutter moving the top over with all his might pushing downward his body almost on the table as he shoves hard. I say; Keep going baby you almost have it.

We manage to get all the potatoes just as the lard is ready for them to be placed within the pot. I tell Lemuel that this is one job mommy should do that I don't want him to get splashed with the hot grease burning him. He agrees that I should do this, I pick up the huge pile of potatoes carefully lower them into the hot grease placing the pot back over the fire then take my seat beside Lemuel saying; Now we have some time to talk, what's on your mind little man?

Lemuel fiddles with the meat as he looks over to me then back to the meat replying; Mommy, I was wondering if you are leaving?

Softly ask: What, why would you think mommy is leaving?

Lemuel's head drops as he replies; Well …..

I reach over caress his cheek say; It's alright baby you can ask and tell mommy anything.

A tear slips from his eyes as he replies; When you had baby J and Bethie you went away. I didn't think you were coming back. I thought I was alone.

Oh baby you will never ever be alone again, you are part of this family, we are a part of you. You are my son, no one will ever take you from us. I'm not going anywhere to have this baby, mommy is staying right here with you. I reply

I pick him up out of his seat bringing him to my lap hugging him tenderly kissing his forehead. I say; We left you with Ana and Jacob so you'd be safe while we went to look for this place not thinking that the babies would come while we were on the road.

He raises his head tears still streaming from his eyes replying; I didn't think you were coming back.

My heart sinks hearing his concerns as I reply; Oh baby, I love you so much, I'm staying right here.

He lays his head against as I caress him holding him close as he replies; I wub you mommy.

We continue to hold each other waiting for the potatoes to cook.

I smile watching Babe stand up slowly then I lean into her soft caresses. I reply, Just make sure to tell me if anything is wrong love. I kiss her fingers as they slide off my cheek slowly, chuckling as Lem takes his mommy's hand, hurrying her out of the room.

I sigh happily watching my wife leave, knowing by her movements that it wouldn't be long before another child would be added to our family. I turn grinning at Jarrod and Beth saying, Are you two ready to have some fun? Hearing their squeals of delight I look around until I find the object of my search, every shade of water colors one could imagine.

I spread them out across the floor after making sure that the children have paper to color on. Smiling as Jarrod immidiately reaches for the blues while Beth goes after the pinks and purples I tell them how to carefully use the watercolors without coloring things I know Babe would not enjoy being colored.

I look about the room with a mischievious smile as I find an empty space on the wall, perfect for a little family picture. I look back to Beth and Jarrod finding them happily splattering colors everywhere in their attempt to make pretty pictures for their mommy. You're both doing wonderful, I know mommy will like her new pictures. Bethie smiles saying she's drawing flowers while Jarrod insists he's drawing a picture of Prince Cody.

As they both put their signs on the page to show that they made it I quietly ask them both if they'd like to color on the wall for mommy. Their eyes open wide, both saying, Mommy said not to color on the walls. I reply, I know but you're only going to color on it a little and we're going to practice on paper first so we get it just right.

I pull out extra pieces of paper instructing Jarrod and Beth to draw pictures of themselves. As they work on their pictures I take out a piece of paper drawing a picture of myself with my wonderful wife. I chuckle as I draw thinking Babe would appreciate it if I didn't draw her tummy as big as it is now, knowing that her tummy is not always that big.

As I draw I accidently splash Jarrod with a little bit of paint causing him to squeal slightly. I look at him innocently pointing at Beth causing her to give me a look that was so very close to the scolding look my wife gives me when I'm doing something mischievious. I grin at Bethie splashing a little at her then chuckling as I see Jarrod sneak up and color my cheek. I turn around looking a little hurt then draw a line across his cheek causing him to laugh.

Soon Beth joins into the water color fight adding her pinks to Jarrods blues on my face, neck and shirt. I laugh softly getting colored the most as our papers are quickly forgotten and moved away to dry.

I catch sight of myself in a mirror as I pick up Jarrod with one arm and Beth in the other saying we better get cleaned up before mommy see's. Jarrod and Beth both squeal happily as I take them to the nearest sink.

Smiling softly I set them on the counter taking a wash rag to Beths face first washing her very carefully so as to not get anything in her eyes. After I am sure I've gotten every color off her face I move on to Jarrod washing his face completely. As I begin to dry Jarrods face I hear the water turn on then feel water land on the back of my neck sending shivers down my back. I turn to Beth chuckling as I see her gasping for breath as she laughs so hard.

I flick a little water at her then lean down kissing her clean cheeks saying, Are you being a good girl? She nods her head with her eyes widening as she watches Jarrod climb up onto my shoulders. I reach up with my hand holding onto Jarrods feet so he doesn't fall then I take Beth in my other arm cuddling her close to my chest.

I jog carefully about the first floor causing Beth and Jarrod to laugh and squeal happily with Jarrod holding onto my hair and with Beth clutching to my shirt as strong as she can.

I make sure they both have a good hold before I move to the stairs, sliding down the banister then running back to the top and sliding down again. I chuckle, taking deep breaths as I hear them saying, Again daddy again! I reply, I don't know if daddy can go again he's getting tired.

But then as they insist on another time I slide down the banister once more before running to the kitcchen and peaking in the door just a little hoping Babe doesn't catch me before I take off back up to the library.

...............


As the sunlight dances through the window the kitchen fills with the aroma of potato's becoming chips with the sound of chatter, laughter and thumbing coming from the upper floor. I can only imagine what they must be into as I cradle Lemuel against my bust.

He opens his eyes as the fragrance fills his senses asking; Are they chippies now mommy?

I smile tenderly to him as the thumbing continues replying; Yes I do believe they are ready, let's do check.


Although knowing my husband and the amount of giggling that is going on, he is most likely sliding the children down the banister. Lemuel slides off my lap as I scoot placing my hand on the table pushing hard in order to stand, wobbly I make our way to the fireplace beside Lem and begin pulling out the pot checking on the potatoes.

I smile asking: Well what you think son, ready?


Lemuel's deep blue eyes look into pot at the golden potatoes then up to me licking his lips; I thinks they are ready to eats.

Chuckle reply; I do believe you are correct! Point to the counter saying: See the bowl the teal one? Bring that over here along with the holey spoon.

Oskay mommy, Lemuel replies as he darts across the room.

He returns with the items smiling wide; Here mommy!

Thank you, now you hold the bowl while I dip the potatoes out of the pot into it, alright. I reply

Lemuel replies: Yes ma'am!


I begin carefully dipping into the grease pulling out mounds of potatoes placing them into the bowl with Lemuel watching each spoonful as his body sways with excitement and anticipation. As I dip back into the pot pain strikes hard causing me to stop my movement bending over groaning softly while lowering the spoon so I don't drop it.

Lemuel lowers the bowl asking: Did you burn?

No baby, I didn't get burned (rub my tummy)I think baby likes chips too, I reply

After a few minutes the pain releases and I continue to take the chips out of the pot placing them into the bowl. Completing this task I gather the rod moving the hanger back into the fireplace. The bowl is heaping with chips I instruct Lemuel to take them to the counter so that we can add salt. He carries the bowl like a newborn. I move over to the counter gathering up the salt block pull a knife from the drawer begin scraping salt over the bowl of chips. I giggle saying
to Lemuel: I think this might work better if we pour the chips out on a towel.


I lay the towel upon the counter saying to Lemuel: Okay little man pour out those chips.

Lemuel's face wrinkles as he lifts the bowl attempting to tilt it over. The bowl slides on the counter he quickly moves forward blocking the bowl from sliding off the counter. He cackles nervously saying: Oh, that was close.

You're doing fine, I reply

He keeps control of the bowl dumping the chips onto the towel, I scrap the salt over all the chips then grab the edges of the towel begin dumping the chips back into the bowl when I hear the kitchen door creak. I turn seeing the door close knowing it has to be my hubby
and I wonder if he has the twins with him. I turn my attention back to Lem saying: alright time to take this hot chips to the table and let's make some sandwiches.


We both move to the table taking our respective seats when Lem says: I would like both ham, turkey, beef please.

I reply: sounds good to me, would you like cheese too?

He squeals: Yes me likes cheese.

I ask: You think the others will smell the chips, come or shall we call for them?

Before my words exit my lips the kitchen door swings open.

Pausing outside the kitchen I smell the chips causing my stomach to growl. I step into the kitchen looking about, holding tight to Beth and Jarrod so they don’t get themselves burnt on anything. I grin at Babe then look to Lem, It looks like you took good care of your mother for me, thank you my little man.

I walk towards my wife scanning her completely especially her face and eyes. Seeing something in her eyes, I lean down kissing her cheek softly whispering so only she could hear, Is everything alright?

As I feel Jarrod tugging at my hair I lift him carefully from my shoulders and set him on the floor, taking his little hand in mine. At the same time Beth gets restless and decides she wants to be released too so I set her down gently holding her hand in my other hand.

I wink at Lem then say to Babe, We were just calmly coloring when we decided it was time to see if lunch was finished. Jarrod and Bethie giggle softly as I explain wrongly what we were doing. I grin at them saying, Shhhh, before I look to my lovely wife trying to appear innocent.

I look about the room seeing the big pot and the bowl, wondering if Babe had over done it. I look to Lem quietly asking him if he’d helped his mommy with the food. Hearing that he’d done most of the work, I ruffle his hair saying, Good job son, looks like you did great! I chuckle, It turned out much better than daddy’s soup gone wrong. I grin at Babe lovingly asking what should be done next.

As we begin to make the sandwiches I know the smell will make it's way to the top floor causing my hubby to dash to the kitchen. Giggle lowly thinking about him leaving the little ones behind in his absentmindedness, find myself relieved as he appears through the door with Jarrod upon his shoulders and Beth attached to his arm.

While he approaches another pain shocks through my pelvic causing me to cringe a bit while I try to keep my facial expressions calm, showing no discomfort. As Malion whispers to me asking if I'm alright I know I mustn't let on what has been happening as I reply: Yes my love everythings just fine.

I see the children are getting antsy wanting to be released as we continue to cut the bread. I smile warmly saying: How about you two come give mommy a hug, I've missed you so much.

Jarrod and Jhavanna brake free from their daddies grip, they bolt across the room their little arms flung out in front of them as they come near. I slide my chair about so that I can give them hugs and kisses as Malion gathers up the big bowl of chips. I look to him oddly when he tells the little ones to “shhhhh”. With him trying to look innocent I know that they have done more than he is letting on.

As I give the little ones hugs and kisses I notice an assortment of non-innocent colors of evidences behind their ears. I roll my eyes looking up to Malion as I slide my finger behind their ears removing some of the evidence. I hold my index finger up showing the paint to Malion as he sets the bowl of chips on the table.

I decide to ignore this for the time, thus I wish to get my family fed then will deal with this matter. My eyes glisten majestically to Malion asking: Would go to the cellar to get the stupendously round cheese so that we may have it on our sandwiches.

As I wait for Babes instructions about lunch I reach down touching her belly softly with my fingers saying, You need to rest love, it's nearly time.

I look at Babe sheepishly, grinning at her as I see she found some watercolors I missed on the children. I chuckle, We may have found some water colors dear but don't worry we were careful. I wink at Beth and Jarrod, sending them into loud fits of laughter.

I kiss her lips tenderly, looking into her glistening eyes as I rub her tummy. I bend down whispering to our unborn child, Be good for your mommy little one, daddy loves her very much. I smile to Babe then walk to the cellar to find the cheese.

After looking around in the cellar I find the round cheese. Pausing for a moment I sigh softly knowing that a trip to town must be made soon due to the lack of food in the cellar and pantry and with the weather turning bad for the winter.

I return to the kitchen with the cheese in hand, smiling at Babe. I look around the kitchen drawers until I find a knife and a cutting board. I begin slicing the cheese by showing my wife one of the pieces and waiting for her approval of it's size.

After slicing a good amount of cheese, with some extra I look to Babe lovingly saying, What's next? I sneak a littla piece of cheese and chew on it silently.

Grinning at the children I take a slice and then break off a small piece bringing it to my wife's lips. I wait for her to take it before I lean down picking her up in my arms then sit down in her chair with her on my lap. I chuckle then whisper, You need a special chair love, with lots of cushioning. Are we ready to eat now?

At times I wonder about that man of mine as I know that his actions prove that the Library is in disarray, thus it will be his job to thoroughly clean the mess. No matter this shall be dealt with later for now it's lunch time.


I smile warmly looking at my babies as they gather around their little tummies rumbling. I'm so very rich/ blessed with my all that I have. My children are the reason my eyes sparkle so. Snuggle baby J and Beth close to me, as much as possible with my belly so rifling.


As Malion goes to the cellar to retrieve the cheese I have Lemuel help me put the little ones in their perspective seats. Finding more paint within their hair, I know I really don't want to go upstairs to see the mess which must be lingering. I find my own stomach rumbling as we wait for Malion to return.

The children giggle as they hear my stomach roar with myself laughing with them. I instruct Lemuel to get the plates from the counter. After he brings them over I begin dipping chips onto the plates setting then in front on my children. Afterwords bring over the sandwiches asking what they'd like on theirs.


I close my eyes for a moment as the baby moves further down letting me know the time is closing in, find I must take a seat. As I open my eyes I find my babies looking at me their faces filled with alarm. I smile sweetly telling them it's alright it's just a matter of their little brother or sister letting me that they are hungry too.

After Malion returns and cuts a vast amount of cheese while eating some then with his asking what's next, I let him know that we need to add the cheese to their sandwiches. He pulls me upon his lap I reply: “honey I don't think this is such a good idea, although you are quiet comfy. Would you mind getting the juice / milk and some cups?”

I chuckle then return Babe to her seat carefully with a kiss on her cheek. After searching through the cabinets I find the cups, setting them upside down on the table in front of the children and my wife . I find both the juice and the milk in the fridge, quietly asking each of our children what they would like to drink.

I grin at Babe then act like i'm going to pour onto an upside down cup causing all the children to gasp. I wink at them then flip the cups right side up as I pour their drinks. Turning to Babe I ask, What would you like to drink dear? We have milk, juice, and water...possibly tea?

While waiting for her answer I begin to put cheese in the sandwiches, letting Lem help me a bit. After making sure everyone seemed settled and ready to eat I find my own cup and poor juice into it before I sit down in my own chair. I look lovingly to Babe then ask Lem, Would you like to say the blessing for us?
