I'm sure many of you are following MckMama's blog and already know that Stellan is back in the hospital...for those that are used to reaching her through the button on my blog, I have added the new one to my sidebar. We are praying for peace for Stellan's family, for a safe return home for the babe, and for the Lord's will to ultimately be done.

I Know That They Have To Grow Up

...but I love that Reuben thinks that his name is Little Chef

and I love that Reese thinks that the LGMs are a representation of the trinity, because they say they are one

and I love that Cole thinks the name of the crayon is "Violent Red"

and I love that Sean gets his monkey and climbs up and lays on the couch with me when I read at night
