Questions

My boy has been doing some thinking lately.  Here is what has been on my sweet boys mind:

Landon: Mom, what are the shepherds names?
Me: I don't know their names
Landon: Yes, you do
Me: No, honey I don't know their names. The bible just says the shepherds.
Landon: I know who knows the shepherds names
Me: Who?
Landon: Mary and Joseph
Me (smiling): Yes, I am sure they did
*****************************************************************************************************************
Landon:  Mom, what the names of the guys who nailed Jesus to the cross?
Me: I don't know their names
Landon (quite emphatically): I NEED to know their names
Me: Honey, I just don't know
Landon (with a strange look on his face and his deep voice): It wasn't Mary and Joseph was it?
Me: Oh no!  They loved Jesus very much, just like daddy and I love you very much. 
Landon (with relief): Oh okay, but I still want to know the names of the guys who nailed him on the cross.

Isn't it wonderful the way a little person's mind works??

What a compliment to you that he thinks about 'Jesus things'.

As I was reading the post before this one, I was wondering "How do you take 3 kids to the orthodontist? What did they do when Morgan had her appointment? What do you do with them at gymnastics?"

Your kids are adorable...I love hearing about them.

I like the fact that Mary and Joseph probably knew their names! =)

I kinda want to know their names too. Not sure why, but maybe they felt bad later and became great advocates for Jesus later! Who knows, stranger things have happened.
This is my first comment. I have lurked a couple of times, but I had say hi.
HI!

Too cute! I can't wait for Adeline to start talking. She has her daddy's "thinking face," and I can't wait to find out what is happening in that brain of hers.
