On the farm with Poppy

Asher wanted to be held by Poppy all day :)

Pushing snow

The boys had a lot of fun on our trip to Iowa, Wisconsin and Illinois. My dad had a great time spending time with the boys and sharing his "toys" with them. Asher had a sweet attraction to my dad, he kept asking for my dad to hold him all day. I loved watching him cuddle up to dad and talk to him-he is getting so big but still a sweetie.
So beside it being super cold the boys were able to play outside and enjoy some "Poppy time."

Some new quotes

Benny to daddy, "Do you know what my favorite pop is? Soda pop."
"Well, what is your favorite flavor?" asked daddy
"Umm Beef scents." Smiles Benny.
"Beef scent? " asked daddy.
"Yeah, Beef scents. That's a kind of pop."says Ben
"Great." says daddy chuckling.

Ben and Asher have been playing Prince Caspian all week. Ben is Peter and Asher is Edmund. They have been playing swords and fighting the white witch and other bad guys all week. When two days ago Ben tells me he needs two sisters. One to be Lucy and one to be Susan, so they can all play Prince Caspian. But Asher chimes in and says he only needs one sister, to which Ben begins to argue for two. And so goes the fight one, two, one, two. I look at Joe and say, well I guess we need three sisters ;) So I tell Ben he needs to pray and ask God for this particular wish.
(I thought it was funnier than Joe did)

Kids say the sweetest things

This morning at breakfast I was reading Bible to the boys (don't be too impressed it is only the 2nd time I have done it this week) and read the passage 2 Cor 9:6-15. And in the latter pat of verse 7 it says, " for God loves a cheerful giver."
Later in the morning the boys run into my room arguing over a plastic tiger toy that Asher is holding. And Ben tells Asher, "Asher you need to share that toy with me because remember God says he loves a cheerful giver. So give me that toy Asher."
It made me so gald that he had heard what I was reading and tried to apply it.
