Well, I've gotta be the luckiest momma on this earth. That's just too cute for words! We sure are blessed!
We heard the sweetest voice coming from our room the other night. It was Cooper saying, "And baby Jesus was sweeping, and baby Jesus was kwy-ing..." over and over. I got Blake's attention and then ran for my camera. I knew what he was doing and it just melted my heart. So here's our sweet Cooper "reading" the Bible!
We've had a fun week last week and had some great family time.
One really cool thing about having a daddy that puts in a lot of hours at work is that when we do get him home around 5, we are in heaven! We sure don't take that for granted!
If you know Blake and I, you know we love just hanging out and playing with the kids. This is when the funny things happen and you get to hear what they are really thinking.
Blake and I pray that most of what happens at home, only happens at home! They are great kiddos, but boy are they BOYS (of course I am just talking about Owen and Cooper)! They want to be naked at all times, or at least only partially dressed.
They enjoy and giggle at any and every bodily function.
They both have a fascination with buns, bare buns.
And our newest development is using a certain body part as a gun. That's right people, it's a gun now.
The first time we saw this being used as a gun, Blake and I had to hide our faces to not let him know how hilarious it really was!
Where do they get these ideas???
So, today in Sunday school the boys had a birthday party for Jesus. They even made little dolls that were their own little baby Jesus. It started out so cute and Cooper was showing everyone his Jesus and kissing him and loving on him.
It slowly turned into a bat, he was swinging poor "Jesus" at everybody and everything...
And then, on the way home Blake and I hear from the back..."I see His buns!"
We laughed and then realized he was talking about his sweet baby Jesus' buns! He giggled his sweet giggle and then showed Owen.
Then he told Owen to spank him. So Owen did! They laughed so hard and kept doing it.
I know that Jesus was laughing at this child's play too!
Earlier this week we had the pleasure of seeing Mommy G. It is always so good to see her. Of course we think about her daily, but to be with her and see the love she has for Sadie is unreal.
It's a constant and vivid reminder for me of the sacrifice in love she makes on a daily basis. It is so like what God did when He chose to send us Jesus knowing the pain in would bring in the end.
It's so incredible to see someone be so selfless and so wise. To choose Sadie's well being over her own. To know that her decision will cause her deep pain and grief, but that it was the right decision. I do hope Sadie learns these things from Mommy G and has a heart like her.
Again, reminds me so much of God's love and sacrifice during Christmas. He wrapped himself in flesh to give us something we could not give ourselves...to let us know Him more and BE with us and die for us. He sent us a sweet baby knowing what the future held for that child...
During this season we have had constant reminders of God's deep love for us as we look at our children. We've also had reminders of our call to truly live out our faith not only during the Christmas season, but also with all that's going on in this world to keep our focus on Him all year through!
