A story I don't want to forget...

I had to write this down, because this is something I don't want to every forget.

Last night Cohen and I were reading his new Message Bible before bed. We were on the story about Judas betraying Jesus and being handed over to the Jews. When we got to the part where the Jews shouted, "Nail him to the cross!" this was our conversation....
Mommy: "Does that make you sad that they had Jesus nailed to the cross?"
Cohen: "Yes, but it's kind of happy too."
Mommy: "It is? Why is it happy?"
Cohen: "Because it made him save me from that bad stuff in my heart."
Mommy: "You're right. Who told you that? Did Daddy talk to you about that?"
Cohen: "No, I just know it."

I couldn't say anything because I was so choked up and began to cry.

Cohen: "why are you crying?"
Mommy: "because I'm so happy that you know it."

That's my son- 3 years, 5 months, and 8 days old- wise beyond his years! Thank you God!

Channing at one year!

A couple of weeks before Campbell was born we had our friend Shannon take Channing's one year pictures.
There is one word to describe Channing and that's EXTREME! She's either laughing or crying, there is no in between! She keeps us on our toes and there is never a dull moment at the dinner table. Oh yes, and this girl is a singer. She can't hear a note of music without dancing and "singing" along. She keeps us all laughing at her silly faces, crazy personality, and VERY loud voice. I can honestly say that my one year old is one of the funniest people I know!

Sweet Channing, you bring so much joy to our lives and I love you!
