Complete with scones!
As we walk through this adventure called life, we remind ourselves that we are all precious children of our Father-- those of us who have walked a little further down the road striving to guide those who have been entrusted to our care for a time. Here is our journey down this path.

Complete with scones!

OK, have I mentioned how much I LOVE language development?? I mean, yes, I love to see my kids learn to roll over, walk, use a spoon and such, but to me language is the best. As they learn more and more, it just opens up a new world to them--and opens up their mind to the world. I love to hear the things they come up with! And I don't want to forget them. So...Several recent new sayings:
She has begun to understand pretend, thanks in large part to big sis Molly who often plays house with her. I will suddenly hear, "Mama!" to which I reply and then she says, "No! Pretend mama!" meaning Molly.
They also play doctor quite a bit, so we all get shots--a lot. She will come up and say, "What's your name?" "How old are you?" "OK, shot." When we pretend to cry, "It's OK, baby." while rubbing the spot and giving you a pretend band-aid.
Tonight, she was playing with Jeff and she was the mama and he was the baby. She told him she was going to the mama doctor. He asked where he should go and she quickly replied, "Different else, (means somewhere or something else, depending on the setting) go Home Depot!"
Any time we finish a box, jar, or bottle of ANYTHING in the kitchen, she will announce it--and the solution to the empty container--to everyone present. For example: "All gone goldfish! More grocery store!"
If someone asks her a question to which she doesn't know the answer, she will think a minute and then look at me and in the tiniest whisper say, "help you?"
I am sure as soon as I click 'publish' I will think of something else....maybe more to come, but for now-goodnight and happy Thursday! J
PS Those of you who live in or near Augusta and want to help bring another sweet baby home...check this out!! We are so excited for our friends and can't wait to see them bring home their little one!

If you are interested, check it out here. I highly recommend it--even after Easter!
Well, at the beginning of the service, there was a 'processional' of the 9 items. Thomas was asked to carry one. He agreed, but wasn't all that excited until he got there that night and saw what he was going to carry. The Roman soldier's pilum (spear that pierced Jesus' side after he died on the cross) It was a very solemn processional ending with the cross--very moving and made the whole evening so meaningful. I did manage to snap these 2 pictures while they were practicing before the service.
And, we did do the 'traditional' coloring of the eggs....still not sure how eggs and bunnies fit in with Jesus, but fun was had by all! Cynthia managed to do the most as she was very quick and kept saying 'again'! Her amazement at the color change made me lose count and we didn't exactly have a 'fair' share...oops!
