Cardinals win the WORLD SERIES

Halloween Visitors

These were not scary or unwanted Halloween guests, but instead my sister Lisa, Uncle Brad, Riana and Juliana! It was a joy to have them here Halloween weekend....we stayed busy running from library programs, to Grants Farm, Trunk or Treat, and other Halloween activities. The kiddos were so cute together and my boys (well Andrew in particular)....wants a baby sister as cute as Juliana. Lisa is pregnant too (18 weeks), but she was a big help with helping me sort pregnancy clothes and baby stuff. We even had time to watch the Cardinals games on tv. Overall, we really enjoyed their visit!


Ryan and I had the opprotunity to go for an overnight at Insbrook to spend some quality time together and relax before our next bundle of joy is born. Anita Winter and others made it so special for us by having fresh flowers, and stocking the refridgerator for us. Andrew and Kyle were overjoyed to spend the night at her house with Emma and Caleb and we were happy to be kid free for the evening and day. What a great memory!

Now I Lay me Down To Sleep

We used to say "and if I die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take." But then one of our dolls say "angles watch me through the night and keep me in their precious sight," so we switched.

Well Andrew asked tonight...."well how did we used to say it." I told him and then the questions began. He got a huge grin on his face, and his eyes lit up. Here are some of the precious things my 4 year old said.....

Are we going to be alive in heaven? Oh, I know about heaven....there are no tears there. I guess that means we will always be happy. Oh, and when I say "family hug" (he says that now and all 4 of us have a big hug) that means everyone in heaven will hug! (You could just see how his mind was turning and trying to comprehend). Where are we going to sleep...or just maybe I could stay up ALL night with Jesus! And if we walk on clouds maybe Jesus or the angles could teach us how to fly wo we could get to the next cloud. Oh mom, I think that you are going to get there first. But I will see you there. Well actually, I love Daddy more, so I will see him first (he is so honest).

We then discussed how not everyone knows about Jesus. He was a little confussed because why wouldn't someone believe. I told him that God gives us the "job" or opprotunity to tell others about God. He was ok with that, but I could tell he still had this look on his face because he was excited about heaven.

It is kind of hard to explain to a 4 year old....if we are "alive" in heaven. We talked about Jesus coming again, and how our souls are, but I think I will leave the rest for daddy to describe.

I didn't want to stop the conversation because it was deep, he was excited and it was about heaven, but it was almost 10 pm (that is what I get for letting him take a 2 hour nap today....but I needed a nap too so it all worked out)and that little guy has pre-school in the morning. I am thankful for the opprotunity to talk about Jesus to him!
