conversations from the back seat...

on our way to dance class this morning...

amelya was whining when we left. which i decided warented no video to be watched on the way to dance...and boy am i glad i did that. amelya and breigh talked so much together and it is SO fun to listen...

i've been praying with them more and more during the day, instead of just before bed, i want them to know we can, and should be, praying all the time...so i was so blessed to hear this:

pray for daddy tractor. all the time. jesus name amen.

breigh said that. i'm so blessed. she prayed all by herself. but then after amelya heard this she said:

and his truck.

:0) isn't that the sweetest most awesomest thing you've ever heard. and i think the all the time comment is because at church we say 'god is good'. 'all the time'. 'all the time'. 'god is good'. breigh has started coming down for worship so she's obviously picked up on this.

they also prayed together for their little friends, and alisha (our worship leader) (breigh has an obsession with her, but i think it goes both ways...lol) they also prayed for auntie amy. it was just so awesome for me to know that they're learning these things by just following my actions. our kids are so impressionable.

a few weeks ago amelya told me she put jesus in her heart. but then when i asked her again she told me no. so i really truly don't know. but yesterday breigh told me that she didn't have jesus in her heart yet. amelya freaked out and said...but then you can't go to heaven! so she totally understands and i can't wait for the day to have her fully acknowledge her relationship with jesus. i know it's coming soon...and maybe for both of them. we are so blessed to be able to give these things to our children...

last night we went to red robin for shaun's birthday. on the way there i stopped at chantae's to pick up something and mentioned we were going...and in the end chantae and nathan and gage all came too. we had a nice time. and breigh and amelya enjoyed the sundae for shaun's birthday. i also enjoyed the banzai burger. yummy. you can't get much better than that!! after we left shaun said that it was nice that they (chantae and fam..) came along. (so now you don't have to worry about inviting yourselves along...lol)

so tonight biggest loser is on. i didn't see much of anything on tv last night. but just read a re-cap of the bachelor. i don't know why i care so much about show this season. maybe it's the kid involved....who knows. i'm excited about biggest loser, and i think without a trace may be new. all i do know is criminal minds is on tomorrow. woo hoo. :0)

so i have major picking up to do yet. i'm sick of this mess. i'm sick of making excuses. so i'm off to clean up. :o) have a super duper day.

15 loving words from you.:

what sweet blessings to know that the word of god is touching the girls! praise the lord! it is so exciting. i just love when gage and i talk and he says jesus in his cute little voice!
lol well, i'm glad shaun was glad we came! we had a nice time! and i didn't have to make dinner right away...when we got home i put it in the oven and watched this stupid show with nathan. so i wasn't waiting for dinner. and well, it was obvious gage had a good time last night! i think shaun already has that shirt, but nathan totally picked it out himself and thought shaun would like it while i was at the chiro last week so i didn't say anything and told him it was a shirt shaun would like!
are you guys coming over tomorrow? it's fine with us, but i wasn't sure! we have to leave by 2:30, but if you still want to have a playdate and mommy date for a few hours it works for us!

I love it when little kids talk about the Lord. It will stay in their hearts forever.

We do Red Robin for birthdays too. Did Shaun have to wear balloons on his ears? I always want to order something else but always end up getting the banzai burger. Soooo good.
Glad you had a nice time.

I love watching my son pray to Jesus, it is the most sweetest thing ever!! Cody must thank God for his doggy and sippy cup too :P how cute is that?! Thanks for sharing your ah-dorable story, we are blessed to have children :)

Don't you wish you could bottle up those moments?

Your children reflect the love for Jesus that they are surrounded with in your home. Praise God.

And now I am a little miffed...what is this Red Robin you speak of? What am I missing out on up here in New England?

It is so sweet to hear the girls praying. It only gets sweeter as they get older;o)

Hey Amanda-
Sorry I couldn't find your email in my address book. Anyway, I think I forgot to mention a signature. Can I add that to my list of wants? I'm still working on the other three pics of my girls. Is there anything else I need to do? Sorry, I'm just totally clueless here. I like the "oh boy" x3. Cute idea. I'll try to think of something catchy like that, but if you have any ideas PLEASE LET ME KNOW. Like I said, so clueless here.

Lara said...

A background would be great, too! I like the works!
