Skyla and Jesus's play date

We drove by the church (her castle as sky calls it) the other day (fri), just driving by on our way to a store. She asked if we were going in and I told her no it wasnt time for church, thats on sunday in 2 days. She started yelling and crying saying she wanted to go to church and go to nursery to play toys and color. I tried again to explain to her No one was there so we couldnt go. She got mad at me and didnt talk to me for just about the rest of the day unless she wanted something to eat.

When Mick came home she asked him If she could go see Jesus. Mick told her she could see a pic of him and gave her a small pic we had on the wall by her bed for her to hold. She got mad and started crying and saying she wanted to go to Jesus house and see him. So we told her Jesus is in heaven with Heavenly Father and we cant see him right now. O my goodness that just made the whole situation worse! Needless to say this went on just about all night.

Finally in bed I was laying with her and she asked again if she could go see Jesus. I told her we would ask Heavenly Father in her prayers if she could go see him and that made her happy. So we said her prayers and she fell asleep with no problem.

My kids are sleep talkers and with Justin you can even talk to him and he will answer its really funny. So in the middle of the night last night (wednesday) out of no were Skyla yells "Hi Jesus" in her sleep. When she woke up this morning she went off about her and Jesus went to the park and he pushed her on the swings. Then they said "WEEEEE" as they went down a "swide" (slide hehe). I asked her if she had fun and she said she loves Jesus and cant wait to see him again.

I know Heavenly Father answers our prayers. It may not be the answer we want but he still answers just the same, but I guess when it comes to kids prayers he goes all out :)

Proud Mom

Justin has really taken to school this year, he is just enjoying every new challenge his teacher can throw at him. The best part is he LOVES it. He loves the work he does in class and even doing his homework ( I better enjoy this part wile I can). One of his fave things to do right now is to write sentences. They are writing sentences in class now along with writing shot stories and drawing a pic to go along with their story.

SO last night we are playing with the kids in their room and Justin is drawing pictures on his magna-doodle. After about 15 min of him drawing pic after pic he gets up and goes in the living room and yells at us to not come in. So Mick and I are playing with Skyla and about 2 min later Justin comes back in with a huge grin on his face. He turns his magna-doodle over and revels a wonderful sentence that he wrote all by himself with NO HELP AT ALL!!! He even spelled all the words right all by himself. Then he drew a pic of me and him smiling. "I like my mom" How can you not love that. He said he would have put I "love" my mom but he didn't know how to spell love :)

Coming from a family that runs high with dyslexia, and having it myself ( and hating school because of it) you have no idea how worried I have been that Justin would have it and struggle in school because of it. I have been setting myself up to hear the words that he has a problem, just in case he did have it....... I'm so glad to be wrong!

Funny Kid Pics

So after reading my friend Sarah Chiltons blog about all the cute funny pics she has of Asher, it got me looking through all the pics we have of the kids when they were just babies. So here are some of our crazy pics of the kids. First SKYLA....... We keep our fruit on the counter and Sky got ahold of 5 apples and took bites out of all of them. When we found her all she did was smile.

When she was small if you would ask her if you could have some of her milk this was the look you got.

She was laughing at Mick.

I just love this big smile. This was after a bath hence the reason she is naked.

This is what happens when you let your kids play with finger paints.

I have no idea what he was doing but it made a cute pic.

Eating his fave food carrots. I would put a spoonful in his mouth and he would play with it.

Guess what he was doing here :) grouse but a funny pic.
