that's a joke

Blake : "Daddy you have a peanut on your nose."

David : "Thanks?"

Blake : "That's a joke Dad."

at church . . .

On Tuesday mornings is our ladies bible study and in Blake's class they have been talking about how God made the whole world and it's so sweet because he comes home and can tell us his memory verse. He loves going every week.
Yesterday we were outside and he was asking where does God live and I told him that he lives in Heaven but he also lives in our heart when we ask him to be our Savior and put our trust in him. Then he told me that God is "our big dad" and I said you're right and then he told me that God lives in a big house in heaven and that only God can use "really, really big knives." Where that came from I'm not sure but I thought it was cute.

a new favorite

Last week I checked out a book from the library for the kids called Mary and the Mouse, The Mouse and Mary by Beverly Donofrio and Barbara Mcclintock. It is such a cute book and the kids love it! Yesterday I probably read it to Blake about 5 or 6 times in about 20 minutes. I'm thinking it might be one of their Christmas presents this year.

sick day

Caley is home from school today because she started throwing up this morning about 5:30. I'm not real fond of that time of the day. Anyway she was finally down to dry heaving so I let her and Blake lay on our bed and watch "Super Why" on PBS for a little while so I could check my email. So I come back about 10 minutes later to see how she's feeling and there's some puke on our sheet and the comforter and the bed skirt and the pillow sham that's on the floor and I'm wondering why she didn't get to the bathroom. I ask her how come you threw up on the bed and her reply was, "I didn't want to miss the show." Needless to say I was a little bit upset that she puked on the bed just to keep up with her tv show. Sick kids, gotta love them.
