To clarify, Sarah didn’t say Jesse and Anna are waiting to have kids, but instead said it will be wonderful when they have an announcement.  What really got me is that Sarah heard a suspicious so

What. Is. This?! I have been led to believe pizza cutters were used to chop lettuce in the Maxwell household. But nary a pizza cutter in sight! I am scandalized! (I did legitimately gasp) I guess

The dog has one 15-minute block each day during which she is permitted to bark.

Did Melanie get a Mason jar of beans as a gift?   

Looks like pop corn kernels.

I thought it was one of those "add water" soup kits that were popular in the 90s.

I can’t be the only one who is genuinely SHOCKED that the Maxwells actually keep cayenne on hand. Maybe it was a gift?

Also, anyone else suspect that gifting Calia a dress was a passive aggressive move on Teri and Steve’s part? It’s a cute dress, but I can just see them insisting she try it on right away (over her perfectly fine pants).

It's also a summer dress she may have outgrown by the time it's summer. 

I thought it very weird too.

There was a photo of Calia wearing something before the photo of her in her new dress, I’m guessing it was another knee-length dress. I highly doubt that Calia is allowed to wear pants/leggings without a skirt on top. 
Chris and Anna’s girls (at least Ruthanne and Lydia) got new dresses last year, and they tried them on seemingly immediately too. They’ve never even worn the typical t-shirt and knee-length skirt combo that their cousins wear, it’s always long dresses/frumpers with them.

Calia wore a dress with leggings, not pants. You can see it in the prayer picture. I think we have only saw her in pants in some snow pictures. She may wear pants in a daily basis, but it has never been shown in the blog. Kids usually want to try their new clothes, so I'm not surprised she was wearing the new dress in the picture.

My mother would roll out leftover crust, sprinkle it with cinnamon and sugar, roll it up again, and cut across into little cookies.   One of my sisters dubbed them “doodoos,”and the name stuck.

Exactly how my mom and grandma made them. We called them 'doo-hinkies,' so not far off from your name for them! :pb_lol:

I still have some of my mom’s 70s Corelle plates(white with a green border).

I remember a couple of plates did break when I was young.  To the company’s credit, they replaced them for free.

ETA:  This pattern.

Spring Blossom Green! I don't have any of this in Corelle, but I've got a crapton of it in vintage Pyrex, Corelle's sister company. They made mixing bowls, casseroles, and bakeware in this pattern. As @Fun-Dee said, pretty much everyone in the 70s had some of this pattern! :pb_lol: If they didn't, they had it in the Butterfly Gold pattern (I have a crapton of that one, too, thrift stores used to be overrun with it!).

I was actually thinking Calia's dress looks a lot shorter than something Teri and Steve would approve of and was surprised they picked it out.

In the ‘70s, I bought my folks Corelle Spring Blossom Green dishes for their 25th anniversary, and I chose Butterfly Gold for my everyday dishes so we wouldn’t get ours mixed up. I gave my set to my sister when I got remarried (she got married a few months after I did) because the ex already had a set that better matched my new kitchen. 
Now I have the plain white ones, which let me use all kinds of fun, bright-colored table linens.

Our country is in a true crisis so the Maxwell's post Christmas pictures

And now for Sarah's latest literary gem: "in the midst of all the hubbub!"

Has anyone her age ever used the word "hubbub?"

Question--I do NOT meant to be mean. Do all of Nathan's kids have eye problems? That's very hard for children even if they do not have peers from outside the family teasing them.

Nathan’s AND Christopher’s. Very gratifying to observe that the parents are getting them good care.

There is a Maxwell legend where Teri once sprinkled the crusts with red pepper (or something similar) instead of cinnamon. 

 I prefer savoury foods so when I have left over pie crust  I will sprinkle the remaining crust with things like red pepper flakes, various spicy pepper blends, parmesan, garlic powder, herbs etc (varies by what I have on hand). I eat them as is but they are also good in soup (especially if melted gruyere is added). 

This being said, I'd love to read how Teri et al reacted to the red pepper. If anyone has a link to the post I'd appreciate it.

Both Nathan's and Christopher's kids have been seen with eye patches, presumably to correct a lazy eye. But the pictures with Elizabeth (and I wasn't honestly sure it was her - she's grown up SO MUCH in the last few months and has lost all the toddler-ness and looks years older) show a level of strabismus more pronounced than I've observed anywhere else on the blog. I truly hope they're intervening medically, and immediately.

Do we know the eye patches are doctor-prescribed? I don't honestly know the answer to that - whether parents can just go to CVS and pick up some fun eye patches to put over the presumed stronger eye, or whether it has to be part of a doctor-prescribed regimen.

We do know see glasses on Maxgrands so that's good. They might be able to skate by without getting regular eye exams since the kids aren't in school and don't need to be able to see farther than a workbook or Bible, but the presence of glasses isn't something that's a DIY, so hopefully it indicates everyone is getting regular exams.

Eye patches were mentioned on the blog when Bethany and Ruthanne were wearing them. Now Danny appears to be wearing glasses, and then Elizabeth may be getting them. I don’t know anything about strabismus or what’s done for it.

I’m sure they are getting good care for their kids. TBH I’m glad that they don’t hide it, and that they will post a picture with imperfections.

I do hope they take those kids to the eye doctor. I got glasses at 18. I was in college and had trouble seeing. Most schools have nurses that test eyes and teachers usually notice kids behavior, if they are showing signs they can’t see well.

I remember them saying that they see a specialist that is in Kansas City to correct eye problems. So not only do they see an eye doctor- they drive a distance to see a specialized one. They do tend to get their kids the medical care that is needed.

Yes I recall this as well. If it's not for mental health, they seem to take health issues seriously. But I have to say I found that picture of Elizabeth very troubling. I hope she is not falling through the cracks because of NR Anna's cancer. Strabismus is a serious condition. I was born with it. I had to have eye surgery when I was two. I wore glasses for many years as a child and had to wear an eye patch for a while. Not all kids will need surgery of course. We are dealing with eye patches with my four year old right now. It's not fun but very necessary. If you don't deal with it, the brain can stop receiving signals from the weaker eye and you can go blind in the one eye.

This actually happened to one of the workers at my son's old daycare. Her eye is quite pronounced as a lazy eye so when I was mentioning to her right before the pandemic started that my son had an opthomologist appointment coming up because we were concerned about his eye, she told me that she could only see some faint shadows with her bad eye.

Thanks! I really should have paid better attention but in my defence - I've been mesmerized by the Impeachment part 2 so that is where my thoughts are. Anyway reading this post prompted me to go back to the 2006-2008 years on the Maxwell Blog. Those really were different times for the Maxwells and fundies in general.

      Earlier tonight, Mr. Cartmann99 and I were talking about playing this game when we were teenagers.
      You can play it at the Internet Archive if you're feeling nostalgic.
      If your score was above a certain level, they encouraged you to take a picture of the score on your television and send it to them as proof. When I finally reached that level, I used my mother's Polaroid to record the occasion.

      For some strange reason spell check on my MacBook wanted to change pre-existing and one of the options it provided was pee-existing

      Of course I have a pee-existing condition.  Usually after drinking a couple cups of coffee.

Just know that there is a whole team of us behind you who care and are there for you whatever you need. ♥️

      Mini-B and I were talking about you today, could you feel it?
      We’ve been exploring crystals and reiki and sage cleansing...not at all in an appropriating way but embracing it and beginning to learn.  We went to a crystal shop and got some lovely things that are meaningful to us and also a sage and lavender bundle.  
       
      researching how to do a respectful cleansing.  
       
      really wish you lived local so we could have dragged you with us.
