{Luke and Taylor were watching one of their "Jesus" movies and Jesus said John 3:16.}
Luke: {runs to me and starts jumping up and down} MOMMY, MOMMY, JESUS KNOWS MY VERSE!!!
Me: I KNOW! Jesus made the verse.
Luke: He made the verse like the moon and stars and the wood for the stairs?!?!
Me: Yup, Jesus made the verse. :)
Luke: Taylor, did you hear Jesus say the verse? Jesus made the verse!
Taylor: I did! Jesus and God made EVERYTHING!

Luke: We saw dolphins at the zoo, didn't we?
Me: Yeah, we did.
Taylor: We didn't see dolphins at the zoo, we saw dolphins at the aquarium, Mommy. You're silly.
Luke: Yeah, you're silly Mommy.
Me: Oh, I see, you tricked me.
Taylor: Luke tricked you like Jacob tricked Esau. Jacob tricked Esau into drinking the soup, didn't he?


Nap time:
Taylor: {yelling from the top of the steps, after I thought she was asleep because it was quiet} MOMMY, COME HERE, LOOK AT ME! {I go up stairs}
Me: Aren't you supposed to be in your bed?
Taylor: Look, Mommy I put my tights on. I'm doing Ballet.
{she rooted through her dresser, found her tights, tutu, ballet shoes and got them all on herself, she also pulled out some extra pillows and had them piled on top of Luke. How she did all this without my hearing anything, I don't know.}


{Luke got up before Taylor since Taylor was busy doing ballet and I had to vacuum and he wanted to help. YES he "helped" me vacuum by holding it with me. Then my cord was getting tangled so I told him to let go for a minute, as I was untangling it, it came unplugged.}

Luke: UT OH MOMMY, you broke it. It broke cause I wasn't helping you. :)

Me: Look, Luke, you're finger is starting to get better. (he burnt it on grandma's woodstove :()
Luke: {Looking at it} Yup, Jesus healed it.
Taylor: Thank you Jesus...Luke, say thank you Jesus!

Today at lunch:

Taylor: Mommy, I wanna die on the cross like Jesus.
Me: You do?
Luke: I don't. I don't wanna die on the cross. Jesus didn't wanna die on the cross either.
Me: Jesus didn't wanna die on the cross but I'm thankful he obeyed God and did so that we don't have to.
Taylor: Thank you Jesus for dying on the cross!
Luke: Yeah, cause I don't wanna die on the cross.

During bath time, Taylor was pretending to be Rebecca and she was filling her cup with water to give to Luke and his camels. lol :) She kept saying, "Oh my goodness, you're camels drink A LOT!"

Nick: Did you guys go grocery shopping today?
Taylor: Yeah, we went to Giant.
{cracked me up because I was talking to myself in the car debating whether to go to Kennies or Giant.}


Taylor: Mommy, when I'm a woman, I'm gonna be a ballerina and I'm gonna get married.


Luke picked out my shoes today and Taylor my socks.
Luke: I'm being nice to you aren't I Mommy? :)

Taylor: {at bedtime, sitting on her bed with her hands folded} Dear God, thank you for always being with me. AND Dear God, thank you for being with Mommy and Daddy and Luke too. AMEN.


Taylor: Where are we going today, Mommy?
Me: We're not going anywhere today.
Luke: We're going somewhere Mom.
Me: Where do you think we're going?
Taylor: Umm, I think we're going to Nineveh.
Me: Oh we are? Where's Nenevah?
Taylor: Way over by Lorrie and Danny's house.
Luke: Yeah, after we go to Ninevah, we'll stop at Lorrie and Danny's.

Gotta love it. Kids were both sitting in corners for wrecking their room, pulling out their sleeping bags for a "sleepover", jumping, screaming, you name it...anything but napping and while being punished they start singing BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD at the top of their lungs. Through good and bad....blessed be the name of the lord. :)
