I'm never surprised......

I just wanted to show y'all some of what's been happening our the Strech house in the past couple of days. To start us off, Carter has been reading my bible..........melts my heart. Now, wait, she's not really READING it, she just spells the words and asks me what she just spelled. Hey, that's a good enough start for me!!! And guess what the first word was that she spelled.......... She said, "Mama, what does this spell.......... J -" oh yes, I love when God shows off. I knew exactly which word the Lord pointed out to her.........His precious Son's name. " - E - S - U - S". When she looked up at me, she was probably like, "good grief, mama, you're scaring me with that smile. What's the deal?"

Then today Carter and Micah discovered the baby cabinet. Micah thought he was so hilarious when he walked in sucking on a pacifier. If only he knew how ironic the whole situation was. When he was an infant, I tried every pacifier under the sun, but NOOOOOOOOOOO, he thought it was a better idea to go ahead and pierce everyone's eardrums by screaming instead of sucking on a pacifier. So, now, here I am looking at a 4 yr. old and a 2 yr. old sucking on old (but clean) pacifiers. Then they found the bottles...........and yes, I did humor them and fill them with milk.

And, finally, this is just one reason why I love my husband so much.........

he can pull these off. Love him!!
