Happy Birthday Leah and more...

I know it's cliche, but I can't believe my Leah is one! I swear I just had her! She is a sweet, easy-going baby, that always makes me smile! Her best "buddy" is Allie who she follows around all day, except at nap time and dinner time when she finds me! When Allie sleeps she scoots down the hall to Allie's door and sticks her little fingers under- until Allie laughs and comes to play! She too loves the bath and bath time is usually around a half hour, only because I want them out. 
For her birthday...
We had all been sick with colds and mine had even turned to Bronchitis, so the party planning had to all be done that day including the gifts from family since they had sent money and gift cards for me to get her a present! That night we had Leah's fav. food and cupcakes with family. She loved opening her present and especially loved the new toy she got. We even let her stay up for awhile since she was having so much fun playing with it!

Special skills: her unique scoot, high fives, repeating letter sounds
Says: mama dada hi 
Development: starting to pull up on things.  She has 5 1/2 teeth and curly hair growing in. 
Favorite food: spaghetti and go-gurt
 past time: pulling things out of any bag, baths,  and being with mom or Allie, reading books
 toy: my phone , balls, and baby's, books, and play kitchen

Ask me if I care?
Ask me If I care that my three and one yr. old are splashing water all over the kitchen and themselves! No! Look how happy they are! Just prior they had both been whining and driving me crazy! Water is a blessing!

Allie is pretty famous in the ward for her singing and dancing skills! We had a family baptism where she enthusiastically sang "I am a Child of God" and everyone commented afterwards!
Tonight we are singing at the Clark house here in town for some volunteer work. Allie has done so well at the practices and sings so cute! I hope she develops a true talent for it!

She just got a haircut- which i have mixed feelings about since I love long hair! It doesn't get tangled now and it is growing on me! Pictures to follow! Allie has been helping a lot lately and even gets upset if I end up doing something that she was trying to help with! I love that girl!

Pictures: A friend in the ward wanted to practice her sweet photography skills on Leah, and so I got to have some adorable pictures taken.

Finally, we must note that not all shaikhs who controlled land in ‘Ajlun derived their status and land from martial qualities. The New Jordans, An important category of shaykhs were those w ho were religious figures. Most of these were sufi leaders, often called fugara (Arabic singular: faqlr, “poor.” The Persian equivalent is dervish). These persons were members of religious brotherhoods associated with the tomb of a saint, called a maqdm or weft, that had acquired control of land surrounding the tomb. The Ottomans sometimes even exempted them from paying taxes in honor of their status, guaranteeing them a profitable return on the lands that they controlled, which they rented out to sharecroppers. The Jarrah family claimed descent from one of the companions of the Prophet Muhammad named ‘Amir bin ‘Abdullah al-Jarrah, nicknamed Abu ‘Ubayda. The family tended his tomb at ‘Ammata in the region of the Jordan Valley that came to be known as Ghawr Abl ‘Ubayda. The family claimed the land as waqf and collected both rents and barakat (Arabic, “blessings”) donated to Abu ‘Ubayda’s memory from nearby cultivators and merchants visiting the nearby summer market. Other religious figures included the Qiyam family, who tended the tomb of Ma‘adh bin Jabal; the ‘Umari, or Massadln, family of Kufr Asad, who used their landholdings surrounding the maqdm of ‘Umar al-‘Az!mI to keep the cultivators of the village in “bondage”; the MalkawT family in Malka, a family of respected sufis associated with the tomb of Shaykh ‘Umar. and the Zu'bi family of al-Ramtha, who tended the tomb of Shaykh Rashid Ibrahim Mustafa al-Zu‘bI.
