Embarrassing Moment # 1,723

On Wednesdays I take Mia home after church. We were in the east lobby sitting on the couches while we waited on Lucas to pull the car around. Mia wanted to lead a song and a prayer. She stands up and leads the two of us in "Jesus Loves Me" at the top of her lungs. People are leaving, passing us and smiling. I hear "how cute is that?" and "She is playing song leader Scott". All is well and good...until the prayer.

Mia: "It's time to pray. Bow your head and close your eyes." (I wasn't about to have my eyes
open with the fear she would be watching me to make sure they were closed!)

Mia: "God, thank you for today. Thank you for this beautiful evening. Thank you for mommy
and daddy. Please help Bode to feel better because he has been sick. (pause - also I hear
a couple people coming by just as...) Oh, and help Aubrie cause she has the diarrea.

Aubrie: In her head "What the- !?! Those people better not know me!"

The two people had just made it out the door, but I was able to catch Matt McCook saying to Francis Sawyer "Did you hear that last part?"

Dang it! I know both of them!

I would like to say for the record that I DO NOT have THE diarrea! Nor have I been sick. However, after dropping her off, and my brother and Summer stopped laughing, Summer told me that her doll named Aubrie has "been sick" with diarrea and in the hospital and was laying in her hospital bed (on the couch). Next time I think Mia owes it to me to clarify such things in her public prayers!

Thank you and goodnight.

Accordian Rock Star

Lucas is moving up in showbiz with his accordian. A couple weekends ago he played with the Matt Stansberry Band at VZD's in OKC. The MSB is awesome, and I was super proud of my hub. He's so hard rock.

As soon as Lucas leaves a room I'm right behind him in a cloud of virus killing armor.

Slumber Party!

Highlights of Friday night:

4 different kinds of soups were invented:
- grapes & coriander
- carrots, soap, & cucumber salt (worst smelling stuff ever!)
- 3 soap soup
- lime juice, carrot, grape, cucumber salt, sugar, soap, & mustard seed soup. YUM!


Our castle in the living room to watch movies.

PJs & fuzzy socks.

Playing in the leaves!

Fingernail painting.

Mia Day - Post 1

Well, tonight was Mia's and my first official sleepover at my house. She is now passed out in "her" room (designated by her the night we moved in - just fine with us) after a fun-filled day/evening. I'll post pics later, but had to share some favorite quotes of the evening:

1. (as walking in the door) "I'm spending the night! You have such a beautiful home!" (as she is spinning in a circle, arms out - picture the movie 'Annie', which she has been watching religiously lately)

2. Me: "Do you remember where your room is?"
Mia: "Of course."
(Walks straight back, eyes get huge, runs to the bed)
Mia: "Oh, oh, I am so surprised. I love my room! Look how big the bed is! I have a window! I have a lamp! Oh, it's perfect!"

3. "Um, I don't think so Lucas."

4. (talking to the Barbies) "Do you have the love of Jesus in your heart?" "No, I am mean." "God is telling you no. Do not be mean." (proceeds to sing "God wants you to be nice.")

5. "Aubrie, look at us! We are twins in our pajamas and socks! Oh, just wait to show everyone. They will love us!"
