Josiah loves pudding

This is Josiah...having pudding for the 1st time?  March, 2009

I ran across these pictures today & just thought they were typical, cute little boy.

Good to the last drop....both the pudding & the boy!  Can't get enough of Josiah's lovin' - He's got the best squeezes and sweet pats!!

A Few Days....

So, our internet went down on Sunday, and we just got back up and running today.  The coolest thing is...I've gotten quite a few things done during this involuntary vacation from the cyber world we all love.

In order to document this occasion, I thought I'd take a break and BLOG!!

Hope you enjoy...

Here is Caleb's 1st night of our Church's Wednesday night programming for 4 year olds - 4th grade, it's new this year and called KidsCrest Connect.  During their 1 hour and 20 minutes at church, the kids sing their Bible verses, play games & have a snack.  Caleb comes home 'jazzed' about something new each week & we are loving all the Scripture we are memorizing through song.  This is the link to the website that has the songs we are all learning - check it out!!

I asked the boys, Caleb & his buddy, Will (whom we carpool with to Wednesday nights) to strike a pose and give me a thumbs up....this is what I got~ Nice work, Boys!!

We always ask the boys to wash before they eat anything, or when they come in from playing outside - so, this day was exceptionally cute, as big brother, Caleb, helped little brother, Josiah, reach the sink!

Clearly, Caleb was a little dirty or wet from playing in the hose, as he became pantsless once entering the house!  Gotta love boys...

This was our 1st Monday of MOPS - Josiah had a little bit of a rough start, but got in the groove, obeyed & had a great morning.

Caleb was trying his hardest to encourage his brother to just smile for mom and the camera - he's usually a great encourager for his brother.

It was a great day and this year has been new and exciting with MOPS & Moppettes!!

Please don't grow up, Boys!

Signs that Grampa & Gramma were here...

  1. Happy Children - because Grampa played lots of games & read lots of stories.  because gramma made goodies and found treasures at a garage sale.  because they got to go to the cider mill for a hayride, apples, pumpkins, corn maze & Pancake Breakfast!!!
  2. Treats hiding around the house - mom always leaves behind goodies.  treats in the fridge, pantry, dining room table decor, well stocked shower!  oh yes, and a well stocked laundry room!
  3. Tired children - can't believe how much the boys sleep after gramma and grampa leave!  3 hour naps?  Yippee....
  4. New Books - nobody reads it like Grampa does - we've all been told that by Josiah & Caleb.  Gramma says 18 is the # of times they read the new book.  It's a hit!
  5. Sad Children - asking where gramma and grampa went & when are we going there to visit - they want to drive down the 'bumpy road' to gramma's house!
Thanks for coming to babysit for the weekend, Mom & Dad - we all had a great time.
