Shane..... (feel the glare....) If you didn't crack me up so much......

Cindy... remember now, you were the one who sent me home with Marshmallows last year.... veggies are not an option. :-)

Jeanne - thanks for that verse. I may paint it on the wall... it speaks what I need before me daily. Thank you! Glad you love the book! We'll have to trade when you're done!

A few more cute ones from Julia today:

Julia and Jason were sitting together and he was commenting on her hand laying in his:

Jason : "Julia, who has littler fingers?"
Julia: " Me."
Jason: "Who has bigger fingers? "
Julia (slyly): Me.
Jason: "Who has the prettiest fingers?"
Julia: "Me."
Jason: "Whose not going to use their fingers to pick their nose anymore?"
Julia: (Without missing a beat..) "YOU."

And this one, came after nap time, when she likes to change her clothes. I don't like her to do this, since it just makes for more laundry....
"Momma, I changed my pants because I like these Disney Princess pants better than the others. But I like Jesus the mostest!"
Who can argue with that? I already have sympathy for any future son-in-law.


An update on Whit and Adrienne, for family and friends that have been praying but aren't on our church email list...
Today, a surgeon who had not seen Ben before came in to evaluate him and do a bronchoscopy, which involved sending a camera in to evaluate his anatomy. Upon doing so, the doctor encountered a large cyst blocking the tube, so much so that he couldn't finish the procedure. This is in fact potentially exciting news, because he believes, based on other observations he's made, that this could in fact be the problem rather than a tube defect. An MRI will let them know if Ben's tubes are properly formed for sure, but this means in fact that he can be moved and an MRI can be performed. The surgeon has removed cysts like this before, whereas he had not performed the type of surgery they had suspected Ben would need.

Overall, Ben's situation is still critical, but less so. They actually moved him slightly today - Adrienne briefly held him up while they changed out his bedding, they got to give him kisses, etc.
And today, for the first time, the doctors actually talked about a time they might bring him home - and I understood that noone had talked about that potential before today. She said that they have praised God all along, but especially want everyone to join them in praising God for this hopeful news delivered today. It is a true gift!

And so is this family, to us. :-)

Hey girlie,

I just did all my catch-up reading on your blog! I have missed a lot of good stuff in a short amount of time!

I definitely passed on your sweet message to Mark and stored up your words to me in my heart.

I like you a lot...nearly every day!

Your friend...and boss,

speaking of future son-in-law...

I remember having brunch with Kim's family the morning after the wedding and Kim was complaining about something to her dad. When she was finished he looked at me with a twinkle in his eye and said, "That's not my problem anymore."

Thus her Indian name was given, Not My Problem.

I can't keep up blogger. I'll read yours, though. Julia is funny. I really hope I can come on Wensday.

Angie said...

You must be busy, busy! No doubt! I am looking forward to whenever you're able to squeeze in a blog post. Just wanted to let you know you're on my mind...

Sending you much love,

I'm missing you too! I check a couple of times everyday just to see if you have stopped by blogland, of course I'm not snowed in with two kids at home to entertain! I've finished the book, you can go to my blog to read how much I enjoyed it, and I'm ready for the next one! If we get snowed in for another week, I may need it to keep from going stir crazy!

love ya!

By the way, any thoughts on the book Captivating by John & Stasi Eldredge?
