God’s blanket

May 29th, 2009

The other day when I arrived home from work I was met at the door by my two favorite boys who were eager to tell me that the irises were blooming and that most of them were purple.  Since then we’ve noticed that there are a very large number of purple iris around town…actually a lot of different flowers that seem to be predominantly purple.  As we drove to church last night Caden noticed a yard with a rather large number of purple iris just a block from our house and made a comment about the large number of purple flowers around town.  I said, “God just felt we needed a lot of purple this year.”  I then told the kids that purple was a good color because its the color of royalty.  Caden was quick to ask, “what does royalty mean?”  We explained that purple was the color of kings and queens.  Caden said, “its like we got God’s blanket this year!”

I’m a churcher

May 14th, 2009

As we were enjoying dinner together tonight we were each talking about our day.  Steph gave the run down of her day complete with diaper changes, laundry, cleaning, homemade granola (mmmm…I’m spoiled) and dinner.  Caden told us all about his day at school and playing at the park afterwards.  The boys always ask how my day at work was and so I usually try to keep it positive and simple.  When it was Dacen’s turn to share about his day he started asking questions instead.  “Are you a worker Papa?” he asked.  I nodded yes with spaghetti noodles dangling from my mouth.  “Are you a worker Caden?”.  Caden replied, “No I go to school”.  “Dacen continued around the table, “are you a worker Mama?”  Steph gave a simple “yes” as she was nursing Brielle, eating her salad and wiping up a bit of Caden’s milk that sloshed onto the table.  I had finished my mouthful of noodles and asked Dacen, “Are you a worker Dacen?”  In his low, matter of fact voice he said, “No, I’m a churcher!”
