Just hanging out





Not much to blog about, but Aidan looked so cute in his outfit that I just had to post a picture or two.  Aidan had just woke up from a nap so Caleb couldn't wait to play with him.  

On another note, anyone who has been around Caleb in the last 6 months has probably been asked to play his made up game called, I'm Thinking of an Animal... He thinks of an animal and then gives you clues until you guess it.  Well, today we were reading a children's book about Jesus dying on the cross and when we talked about the crown of thorns, Caleb asked why Jesus didn't just lift the crown up a little bit so that it didn't hurt so much.  After trying not to laugh( I wanted him to know this was a serious subject) I explained why that wasn't possible and that Jesus was in a lot of pain and was very tired. I also explained that Jesus couldn't move or do anything.  Caleb said, "Well, he could have played I'm Thinking of an Animal. You don't have to move to play that."  Um, I obviously did a horrible job teaching this story.  You would think I would have learned by now to keep things a little simpler.  Oh well, I tried.

Those precious, PRECIOUS BOYS!!! And, what a great question for Caleb to ask Jesus when he gets to heaven - "So, why didn't you play this game to pass the time?" You know the Lord loves it and you ARE a great Mama in teaching your boys about the Lord.

HOW AWESOME!! I love that he has such a great inquisitive mind. I have never heard that question before in all the bible classes I have taught. I also am so proud of you for being such a great mommie and for teaching our grandsons about our Lord. Thank you, Regina. I know they are your boys and you want to but I am HAPPY you WANT to. I know they will be good Christian boys someday because of it.

The pics are WONDERFUL. Once again, I love this blog stuff. LOL

I love you, Sweet Girl....

The boys are so cute! I giggled at Caleb's question. He must have a very positive outlook. I hope he never stops asking questions and wanting to learn!
