Car Ride Comedy

Our car ride conversations have become quite comical and philosophical at the same time! I just have to share these funnies that have happened recently!

First off, we went to purchase "big boy" underwear for Lawson, to encourage him toward potty training! We got him some dinosaur and rocket ship underwear and when we got to the car he was adament that I open the package so he could hold them. After I opened the package and handed him a pair, I turned around to check on him and this is what I found!
He's hilarious, he just does stuff like this all the time and doesn't even realize how funny he is! I love this boy!
We're slowly making progress on the potty, yesterday, for the first time he actually said "my tee-tee's coming" (as opposed to me just putting him up there regularly). So Adam put him up on the potty and he went like a champ! We were excited!

As for Peyton, his little mind is working all the time, he truly keeps me on my toes with all his questions and inquisitiveness. This is a picture of what he usually does in the car, he loves to read! It's either Clifford or Llama Llama Red Pajama!

Onto our philosophical funnies...recently I ordered a CD of verses set to great contemporary music (check out I highly recommend it! Anyway, we were listening to the song "Out of the Mud" based on the verse Psalm 40:1-2, "I waited patiently for the Lord, he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit out of the mud and mire, he set my feet on a rock and gave me firm place to stand." He was asking me about the "slimy pit" and why there was mud. I explained to him that the mud was a picture of our sin (like when he disobeys, talks ugly or is unkind to Lawson) and that God is holy (pure and clean) and that when we ask Him to forgive us, He willingly lifts us up out of our sin...the slimy pit. Well, the funny "philosophical" conversation began when I used the word "holy". Peyton was asking "how does God make us clean"..."how do we get the mud off" and I said that when we ask for forgives God makes us clean, and our "mud" goes away. To that comment he promptly said, "Mom, does He use a "holy blower" to clean us off?" A holy blower...I have no idea where he came up with that, but how funny is he? I love the fact that I get the priviledge of having these every day, run of the mill conversations, that are helping to shape and form his view of God! These conversations are so encouraging for me, to see him questioning and acknowledging who God is and what He does. It's a great reminder for me of what God has done and continues to do for me when I come to Him in repentance asking for forgiveness, thank you Lord for your "holy blower"!

Lake Day With Friends

Back in March, Adam and I began setting aside weekends on our calendar to go to the lake this summer with friends and family.  It felt a lit...
