We hadn't been home from church too long this evening when I noticed the twins were walking around the house singing one of our choruses. Paige was belting out the words to "God said you're gonna make it..." She and Peyton were singing "God said you're going under!!!" HA!! Amazing how much they even get out of a service. They are so bad in church that I hardly get anything out of the service. I can't believe they can pick up the words of a song!
One day last week, Grandma and Grandpa Don were helping babysit the kids. Grandpa Don told Peyton to pick up his toys. He said, Peyton stood there straight as a soldier and with his left hand saluted him and said, "Yes Sir!" :)
Last Saturday, we were going down the road and Parker and Paige were in the back seat playing with their toys. Parker had a small batman and Paige had a small Cinderella in her wedding gown. Parker said, "Paige, let's have them get married!" She agreed, so Parker started the ceremony...he said, "Batman, do you take Cinderella to be your awful wedded wife??? :)
We attended two funerals last weekend of some close friends. The kids didn't quite understand and we had tried to explain things on their level. Jonathan had to give the eulogy on Saturday afternoon and I decided it would be best if I didn't try to fight the kids alone during the service! We went to Steak and Shake for lunch (which was a disaster in itself) and then just waited on Daddy to get finished. Parker kept asking what was taking him so long and I explained to him that Daddy went to the cemetery to help bury him! He said "they are going to bury that man in his good clothes???" I then had to explain that they would bury him in that pretty casket and put dirt on top of him. He seemed satisfied with that and we went on to talk about different things. I thought that would be the end of that conversation for the day! As soon as Jonathan arrived, Parker could hardly wait until he got in the car to ask, "So Dad...was it really cool burying that man?"
Kids....they keep you on your toes!
