Cutting the Grass and Sawing Logs

Evan and Eden love to help us when we mow the yard.

This past Saturday, Eric was mowing the yard and the kids were excited to be riding with Daddy but....

In just a little bit, I went to check on them and this is what I found!

We have Proof!

A couple of weeks ago Eric walked into our bedroom and found Evan and Eden both sitting in their swing. They were so happy just to be sitting together!

One day, probably in their teenage years, we can use this picture to remind them that...Yes, at one time you thought being together was really COOL!

Bluebonnet Blue-pers!

Check out Sissy's new trick! She is pointing to her brain.

With all the bugs buzzing around the flowers, Evan wanted to make sure his "Fly" was okay.

No Sissy, we can't take all of the flowers home!

Did nature just place a call to Evan?

Good Friday

On Good Friday my mom brought the kiddos to my class Easter party and they had a GREAT time. Evan and Eden both love to be outside so they were in their element. Once they realized that the eggs were filled with candy...they would not hunt anymore.....they just wanted to see what was in the eggs that they had.

Hunting eggs and seeing bunnies and baby chicks during Easter is fun for any child but Eric and I feel it is very important to teach our children to real reason for Easter. Here are a few stories that show us that our two little ones are already learning the real meaning.

If you are ever around Evan you know that he is quite a talker. He can say just about anything, his vocabulary is very extensive and his voice is very clear. Well, for a while when you ask him "Who Died on the Cross?" he will answer, "Jesus!" Now, he will also tell you that "Jesus is Alive!" Also, this past week a lady was talking to him in Wal-Mart and asking him if he could talk...he looks up at her and says, "Jesus Loves Me!" the lady (looking very surprised) says, "Yes, he does."

Eden does not talk near as much as Evan but sometimes she surprises us. My parents have a display of crosses above their bed that the kids are fascinated with and after her bath the other night she looks up at the crosses and says, "Oh Jesus!" just as plain as ever.

Eric and I believe that it is very important to begin teaching your children about Jesus from the very beginning... and as you can see from the stories above that even though they are small they are not to little to learn about Jesus' LOVE!
