Advent Reading Day 4

Scripture reading: Genesis 12:1-7; 15:1-6 -- The Call and Promise to Abram
Symbol: Abram will be the ancestor of as many people as there are stars in the sky
I am getting acclimated to my new camera and the flash is a little strong can barely make out the stars, but they are there! :)
Some funny things Noodle has said lately:
Noodle: Dad, I want you to put me on your holders!
John: Your what?
Noodle: Your holders, you know (pointing to his shoulders) your holders!
He loves to sit on John's shoulders and be that high....he giggles the whole time.

Last night, John was getting ready to leave for grad school. The boys and I have gotten to a point in the semester where we are just tired of him having to be gone 2 nights a week. So, I always kid with the boys that they need to find a rope so that we can tie Dad up and he can't go to class. So, as John was grabbing his school bag and walking towards the kitchen to leave, Noodle runs up and latches on to his leg and exclaims, "Tie him up!" It was so unexpected and so funny!

And not to leave Burrito out....
Last night as we were praying before eating dinner, the boys have picked up on times when John and I have said "Yes, Lord," or "um huh" during prayer to affirm what the prayer is praying. They have mimicked this on several occasions and last night while we were praying it was getting a little out of hand. So when John finished praying he told Burrito that he did not need to make any noises while we were praying, especially since he didn't even know what that means or why people do that. Burrito matter-of-factly, in his good first-born, I know everything voice, said "I do know why people do that. It is because they are saying yes to God."
Okay, so maybe he does get it.
And maybe sometimes more than we know.
