Tears of Joy

Ethan called out to me tonight, about 45 minutes after he went to bed. I walked in to his room to find him sobbing. I asked him what was wrong,

"I'm (sob) just so full (sob) of joy!" (big sobs)

I wish I had a picture of his precious little face. He asked me if that ever happened to me, if I ever cried from being full of so much joy. I told him how I sometimes cry when I hear a song that really touches me, and at other times when I can just really feel Jesus' presence. Ethan said his joy came from the music he was listening to just then... "Sunday Morning Songs" by Bob and Larry. So precious.

A Little Commercial

I just need to tell you all about the best barbeque sauce ever. After we moved, we couldn't find it. But I just ordered a case of it online today! Can't have summer without Cookie's!

The View Out My Window

Anytime I look out the windows facing the back of our house, or coming down the street from taking the kids to school, I see the good old American flag waving above the houses. I can't help but think of my grandpa who was in WWII and my dad who was in Vietnam/Korea/Thailand, and the husband of my friend Tracey, who is on his way to war in Iraq. Whenever I try to talk to Tracey about it, I end up sounding like a blubbering fool. I just can't find the right words to express my thanks and gratitude and indebtedness for the sacrifice she and her husband are making for me and my family. Tracey, I'm praying for you, your kids, and your beloved sergeant. Many many prayers, not just from our family, but from millions of people all across the country, are going with him!

If Cartoons Got Saved

After reading Sarah's post over at Life in the Parsonage where she mentioned her son prays for his favorite cartoons, I thought of this really cute song and just thought I'd share it, heehee!

Little Bunny Foo-Foo

Okay, most of us grew up learning that song in elementary school. You know how it goes, Little B-F-F goes hopping along, scoops up field mice and bops them on the head. Little bully. But down comes the fairy and she says, "Little Bunny Foo-Foo I don't want to see you scooping up the field mice and bopping them on the head. I'll give you two more chances, and if you don't stop, I'll turn you into a GOON!"

Okay, so that last part with the chances and turning into a goon, there are probably all kinds of variations of that part. But I wanted to share with you what I just now heard Ethan singing while he was sitting at the table eating some little foil-covered chocolate bunnies, marching them across the table. His exact words:

"Little Bunny Foo-Foo Hopping through the forest, scooping up the field mice and bopping them on the head. Along came the fairy and she said, 'WHAT?! You're still doing that??? If you keep it up you're going to JAIL!"

And then Ethan gobbled up the unwrapped bunny he was marching across the table.
