faith like a child:)

Tonight Jayda threw a book at me (not really intentionally) and hit my arm.  She kissed it and said, "God will heal it..." (something we usually say after getting owies)

then she says..."God's in m-m-my heart...and God's in y-y-your heart too? 

...and God's in the basement?....i-i-in the hole?  and he's on the wall?"

This all came from our conversation last night.  We were talking about Him healing another owie and she said, "God will come heal it and then he will go bye bye?  Where is God?"  I didn't think my conversations with a 2 1/2 year old would be this deep.  He's everywhere.  He's way up high, he's here, and there, and he's in your heart and mommie's heart too.  

"He's in my heart?  What is my heart mommie?  ...and he's in your heart too?"  We were in the basement and she looked up at the ceiling and said "I want to see him... hold me way high up"  So I did. 

The "hole" is the heat vent which she kept trying to look into, to see God.  Seek and you shall find, right? :)

a good day

It's so hard to start a post when you have so much to talk about.  Considering it's been over a month since I last shared...  I'll start with today.  Right now it is nap time for the big kids, and I'm guessing that I have about 15 minutes before one of the babies wakes up.  Even after one blow out, puke all over the exersaucer, and Levi getting a black eye, it has been a really good morning. Sometimes I wonder if the neighbors are laughing at me when they peek out their windows and see the chaos.  In Jayda's words, "oh well:)"

We added some water to our sandbox...which made things a lot messier and a lot funner...

Even Jonah got to get his hands dirty!  (sorry Levi- you were sleeping!)  He played in the sand for a few minutes before he even tried eating it.  That's unheard of for my little guy- it's usually straight from his hands to his mouth.    

eating the the leftover sand...

After playing outside, the big kids got to take a bath (and "swim") and then.....SMOOTHIE TIME!  They think the blender is hilarious.  Then it was movie time, books, and naps.  (and somehow I was able to do a few loads of laundry in the middle of everything.  All credit to my abba in heaven- he is good, isn't he?:)    

Next post...Jonah CRAWLING!!!  (as soon as I can get a good video of it!)
