The Things They Say... And Pray

Me: "What should we pray for tonight?" (tucking in KG)

Keilah Grace: "Jesus... Bob the Builder."

Me: Bob the Builder?

Keilah Grace: Uuhh, Huhh. (big smile)

Me: "Thank-you Jesus, for... Bob the Builder, and for sending your Son to die for us. You are so good." (Never thought those things would be in the same sentence.)

Beanbag City

Oh my goodness, did we cause a scene I'm sure in Gordmans awhile back! Grandpa Doug and Nena treated the kids to a beanbag all their own and I found some really nice ones at Gordamns. Fall/Back to school inventory is a great time to find reasonable beanbags. I was just as excited as they were to find so many color options as it breaks down the reason to fight over THAT at least. Everyone chose their own color, and came home happy as clams. Well, Harrison did cry on the way home, but that was because he was surrounded completely by these bright balls of color and couldn't see anyone! Yes, 7 kids, 2 adults, 5 chenille beanbags, one 12 passenger van, and it was still packed to the brim! They sang at the top of their lungs all the way home. Thanks Grandpa and Nena! Hope you enjoyed your cell message that night on the way home! :)

Contagious Smiles


These smiles are contagious! Here, Madeline is showing off her bandage after she had to have stitches in her chin. Harrison is just as greasy dirty as he is happy here, and who can resist these "bedbugs?" "Tophaphia" (as Keilah calls Sophie) is dazzling us with her grin and melting hearts one by one. Later Taters!
