I guess I have been talking a lot about Thanksgiving in preparation for our Thanksgiving dinner because the other night Luke had a basket of cars and he was handing cars out to me saying, "thanks giving mom." He would also say while giving me a car, "thank you giving!" He might not understand Thanksgiving but he does have a happy heart!

God's helper

John and I noticed Luke talking about being God's helper one day. He would say, "sing God's helper." We asked him several times what he was talking about. He just kept saying, "I am God's helper." Neither of us can remember talking about being God's helper. We don't know if it is a song, but we figured he learned this sometime while being at church. Since then, I have heard him talking about being God's helper while he was playing with cars, reading books, coloring, etc. What a great reminder to me that no matter what I am doing at any given moment, I should be God's helper. It is not about me, I should give God the glory for everything! Thanks Luke!

The Wizard of Oz

While we were vacationing in Flordia, John and I thought it would be a good idea to ride bikes everyday to get some exercise. My aunt and uncle had 2 bikes and they lived on a beautiful golf course. So we thought we would explore the area.

After we started riding around for awhile, we noticed that the neighbors were laughing at us. I guess we kind of did look like the Wicked Witches from the West. We both got a good laugh at watching each other ride those bikes!
