How about a knuckle sandwich?

This morning as the kids were eating breakfast I was discussing what they wanted for snack. Isabella was being her normal "picky" self declining everything I offered her for snack. Finally she decided on strawberries. I asked if she wanted anything to go with them, since strawberries burn off pretty fast. She was thinking...

On the other side of the table was Micah, eating quietly, having not said anything since waking up. And while she was thinking and everything was silent he just as straight-faced as he could be he said,

"How about strawberries and a knuckle sandwich? That should hold you off until lunch."

Needless to say, the tension was broken and I spent the next few minutes laughing, as did everyone else.

Guypalooza 2009

Last Friday afternoon Michael went camping with several of the guys from his Tuesday morning bible study group. These men are such an answer to prayer for both of us. Michael got his appetite wet when he started to become friends with some guys in Texas but then we moved to "hell-frozen-over", I mean, Illinois. He started meeting with this group of men and they have been studying the book by Mark Batterson called Chasing a Lion On A Snowy Day, hence the saying on the side of the SUV.

I am so thankful for God and His work in my man's life and I am so thankful for the men that God has brought into his life.

You chase those lions, boys!!!!

A Glorious Day

Last summer Isabella started asking about being baptized. We did not enter into this decision lightly because she is still so young but after alot of prayer and discussion we decided that it was time. I worried more about what it would do to her for us to tell her that she is not old enough to understand what she is doing than I did about her being so young.

It was a wonderful day for all of us and Isabella did amazing. I felt like I was going to throw up all morning, the way I feel when I am going to sing a solo. It also was really cool because the pastor that married me and Michael almost 10 years ago also got to baptize our first born. Such a special moment. And thanks to some wonderful friends we now have this video of the baptism to watch and share.
