Disclaimer: I don't actually recommend playing this at home. It's rather dangerous and childish, don't you think?:) Anyway, if you feel the need to try this, do it in your backyard while the younger ones are napping. Or just don't do it at all. It does make you look quite silly.

Eating out of Sally's bowl...Sally is my beagle, of which I have no good picture because I can never get her to hold still:)

Anyway, I checked out a book on Van Gogh from the library. This is actually the second time I've had the book, but I enjoyed it immensely the first time, but the library sent me a letter and I had to take it back. ALL THAT SAID, I found a painting that I didn't notice the first time I had the book. I've decided to copy it. It's coming along rather well.
This is Van Gogh's work, not mine...lol:)
When I'm done, I'll scan it a my dad's office and post a picture of it. I'm not going to use the same colors he used; I'd like to make her hair more brown and I'm not loving the pink dress...pink isn't a favorite color of mine. If I made her dress golden yellow, it would match my room nicely. Decisions, decisions!

Anyway, I applaude these guys:

ps. I haven't seen our guys sing AND dance yet, but I'm sure they'll be as amazing as these guys:)

Verse 2...We've heard it repeatedly throughout our lives.
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of any kind..."
Do we actually do that? Do we consider it a joy to face trials, because we know that the testing of our faith developes perserverance? It's quite a challenge, actually. I encourage you to read James, even if you've read it hundreds of times before. His writing style is very different from a lot of the Bible, and I really enjoyed it. I hadn't read James in a while, and I think it's my favorite book now:) Isn't it wonderful we have such an amazing God?

...and, the tell-tale sign that it was me, under my door...

"Burp" - Daddy taught him that one
"Hey hey!" - my bff Courtney is responsible for this
"Ach-hoo" - it's SOOO cute when he says this!
"Guys!" - if we're ignoring him, he'll yell "guys! guys!" until we pick him up and include him in the conversation
"Tractor" - he points at tractors in a book he has:)
"Opa!" (he pronounces "A-po!") - a Greek greeting that my friend Courtney is also responsible for...lol
"Happy!" (means "happy birthday") - we tried forever to get him to say "happy birthday" but he will only say "happy". He'll say it at appropriate times, though. So cute!
He got his hair cut for the first time today. I'll have to post pictures! It's SO cute! He has so many curls in the back. Looks like I have no hope of haveing a dark headed sib; Matthew's hair is very blonde and curly:)
