Since I still have to put new pictures on the computer--that's been the holdup with new posts--I thought I'd post an old project. Several months ago, I decorated this bag for the movie I was giving as gift. I love doing collage work with scrap paper--it is just so fun to represent something without having to worry about all the minute details. Can you guess what movie is in the bag?

beans, beans...

Aubie has never liked beans. Since she was tiny. The other day when we were eating taco salad, she finally described to us the reason she doesn't like them. "They taste like potatoes without any salt on 'em." After she said it, I could kind of understand where she was coming from. Especially when I split a kidney bean down the middle--it even looked like a tiny potato. :) (Here she is back around the time she was beginning to decide these sorts of things.)

This morning, I had another Bible lesson much like this one. Though I was standing right in front of him, Matthan kept saying, "Mommy. Mommy. Mommy. Mommy! Mommy! MOMMY!" All the while, I am saying, "Yes, Bud." every time. Finally, it was too much. So I yelled, "Stop saying my name if you're not going to do anything!" More than ever before, it hit me. God doesn't really like that either--He must not if it's one of his top ten rules. And I thought about my dad's sermon on Sunday (if you'd like a link to listen, I can send it to you)--that maybe I'm not guilty of saying God's name as an expletive, but that, like I yelled at my son about, I am guilty of saying His name repeatedly without doing anything.

the house

It's hard to do your schoolwork when a little house needs furniture. And people to live in it. Only, I was just told, "Mommy, that little circle is not a head. It's a table. I can put some people if you want..." No Ma'am, I'd just like for you to finish your spelling, please. :)

Hard to believe this was 2 months ago...

Happy 2 month birthday, Solomon!
