Introducing FROGGY!

If you have been around our blog for long, then you probably know all about Lammy.  Jonah loves that little lamb with all of his heart.  It truly is his very best friend.  Well, before Micah was born, I wanted a friend for him.  My friend Denise was on the lookout too and called one day to tell me she found a frog.    She described him to me and we decided this could be Micah's friend.  She bought three and shipped them to us.  

It wasn't until the last month or so that Micah has attached himself to these little frogs.  And, by frogs, I mean two of them.  He carries two of them at a time.  He sleeps with two at a time.  He puts two in his crib before his nap time.  The reason we buy three is so there will always be one if one happens to get lost or ruined.  Since he attached himself to two of them, we've been trying to break that and give him only one at a time.  We actually hid the other one last night.  

I took these pictures while he was still clutching on to two at a time.

Made me laugh

Sometimes, you read a blog that makes you laugh out loud.  Today, I was reading BigMama and came across this.  Ahhh, love when I relate to someone in the blogosphere!

On Saturday morning P had to wake up early to go do some work out at our church. We didn’t have a soccer game and I’d been dreaming for weeks about sleeping late on Saturday morning. In fact, I’d had a long talk with Caroline the night before about how she needed to get up, grab a pop-tart, watch cartoons and let me sleep. Which I believe is the same thing that woman told her kids in Proverbs 31.

Ring The Bell- The Movie

Several months ago, the news hit DeLand that a Christian movie was going to be filmed here.  Sawyer Brown was here in December for a concert and fell in love with our town.  The lead singer is the producer of this movie so he decided to come here to film.  They had auditions for roles in the movie and several of our church members got parts.  

Dan was asked to come to the set to do the morning devotion on one of the filming days.  After that, he stayed in contact with those producing and directing the movie.  When they needed extras for the movie, they contacted him to enlist some church members.  As a result, Dan got to be involved with the movie a couple of times.  

The first day was several weeks ago.  Dan and many of our church members gathered at a local church for a "church picnic."  I really wanted to go and take Micah with us but I keep two kids on Monday afternoons and didn't want to cancel on them.  We were told the entire day would be like one big family picnic.  So, it would have been fun to be there as a family but since I couldn't go, I sent my camera with Dan.  

This also happened to be the day Steven Curtis Chapman was there.  He plays a pastor in the movie.  

They asked us to bring anything that would be fun to do outside.  Dan packed a picnic lunch and lots of fun outside toys for them.  He took balls, bouncy toys, corn hole and frisbees.  Jonah had a wonderful time.  He never really knew he was being filmed.  He just loved the time with his daddy!

And, if you know Dan well, then you probably know his love of 'photo bombing!'  Well, he couldn't let the day pass without getting in a Steven Curtis Chapman photo.  
And, I was glad to get this picture of my boys with SCC.  He has been one of our favorite artists for many years so this picture is pretty special to me.  

Dan and Jonah had so much fun!  Dan actually participated in another day of filming but I don't have pictures of that day.  We can't wait to see this movie when it comes out this time next year.

Hand in hand

We held hands as we walked.  I told him that one day he wouldn't want to hold my hand.  He didn't believe me.  I told him that one day he would be embarrassed if I kissed him or hugged him.  He didn't believe me.  We kept walking.  I told him that one day his friends would be more important to him that his mommy.  He didn't believe me.  We walked a little more, fingers connected.  Our two hands were one.  

After a little while, he let go of my hand and then he put his arm around my leg.  I looked down at him a smiled.  He said "well, I'm not embarrassed today!"  I believed him!
