Graysonisms and maybe the first Griffinism of many to come!

Graysonisms first.....

1. In our Thursday night worship service at church, we were reading verses on the screen. Basically, I was trying to whisper a kid friendly version into Grayson's ear while it was being read. While explaining the Last Supper to Grayson, I said something about Jesus holding up a cup of juice. He quickly stopped me and informed me it was wine.

2. Right before we partook in the Lord's Supper, Grayson whispered to me, "Mom, do you think I would like that bread and wine over there? I'm getting kind of hungry."

3. Last Thursday, Grayson had an Easter egg hunt at his preschool. It was pretty windy, so I got him a light jacket from his closet and encouraged him to wear it during the egg hunt. His teacher, not recognizing the jacket, complimented him by saying she loved it. His response was, "It's a special jacket. It breaks wind." Yes, I had told him it was a windbreaker. LOL!

4. This morning before school Grayson asked me how God was born. I don't think he ever quite understood.....not sure I understand it all either!

And now for a Griffinism.....believe me, this is a funny kid, so I can't wait what these will be!

1. Griffin thinks every body of water is a water bottle. So, every time we pass one, his response very loudly is, "WALLA BALLA!"

2. Today I had put Griffin in his crib when we got home from school to see if he would rest some more. He didn't fall asleep, however, he was happy. I decided to leave him and turned up the monitor to listen to what he was doing. It was so sweet! He was counting to ten over and over and then he would go, "Yay Giffin!" (That's how he says his name!) So precious!

I know some of you might not think all of this is as great as I do, but I need to record it somehow so I will never forget these funny, precious moments with my boys!

Easter 2010

We started our Easter celebration on Thursday night with a service at our church, including the Lord's Supper. We took Grayson into this service to use the opportunity to teach him different things about the events leading up to Easter. He was awesome during the service, but said several funny things, which I will share in another post of Graysonisms. On Saturday night, we dyed easter eggs, and Sunday morning Grayson and Griffin looked forward to opening Easter goodies from Mom and Dad. (YES.....Mom and Dad. We DON'T do Santa, nor the Easter Bunny. You may disagree, but we have our reasons, i.e. Jesus is why we celebrate Christmas and Easter, not Santa and the Easter Bunny. Don't worry. We make it very clear that there are people who do, and that it doesn't mean that they are horrible people.) We went to church, had an awesome Easter service, and later went over to our friends' house for a late Easter lunch. Below are a few pics of the boys' Easter goodies and before church.

This kid melts my heart.....look at his eyes!
