Friday and Friday Night

Saturday, September 29, 2007

Yesterday, I helped a family move several pieces of furniture into their new home. Seems to be moving season for our friends and church family. They bought a beautiful home with nice room for their children to run around and play. Afterwards, JMEjr headed to Barnes and Noble where they offer a great children’s area that houses a very cool Thomas set of trains and tracks. We played and looked at new Thomas trains and which ones would be cool to have at home. We went and looked at the books and sat on the floor and read them and played with the cool ones that offer interaction. After this we did a “service” (a joyful service which jmejr and I spoke about) for my precious WLW and his wonderful, selfless mother. This meant we needed to go to the place with RED BALLS (which jmejr loves to sit on) – Target. Left there and headed home where lunch was waiting on us. OH, on the way, jmejr showed me where some tractors were and we stopped and watched them work.

Friday nights at The Haven have seem to become a special night with h dinner usually in front of the television with a movie for the boys. The movie last night was the Thomas the Train movie. The food last night was pizza from Mellow Mushroom. We got a pizza with half hamburger/italian sausage and the other half with banana peppers/mushrooms. MMmmm. We very rarely get anything other than a cheese only pizza. The boys seemed to enjoy it.

I meant to mention this last week, JMEjr’s friend, LeeLee, welcomed home a new baby brother and when we shared with jmejr what Leelee’s brother’s name is we said, “his name is Samuel Webb.” JMEjr sat for about 5 seconds staring and said, “Like a spider.” (spider “web”)

CJE has a 9-month checkup coming up next month. Crazy!!! 9 months. In just 3 more months he will be 1 year. WOW! He has done almost everything which a second child does, which is crawl much earlier, stand up while holding onto something much earlier. He still has yet to “say” anything, which should be coming soon. JMEjr said his first at exactly 9 months. At CJE’s 9 month checkup, we’ll get asked that question.

JMEjr has become quite the conversationalist. He has begun to ask the questions, “What is it?”, “What are you doing?”, “Where are you going?”, and one of his favorite ones “How old are you?” (we are encouraging him to not ask a lady that question), “Who’s that?”.

Currently we are working on the “Lord’s Prayer” with JMEjr. He has, in his own way, memorized the following “Our Father, Who are in heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come. They will be done, on earth as it is in heaven” and can get with help, “And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.” And then can get the rest with little help, “For Thine is the Kingdom, the power and the glory; forever and ever. Amen”

These pictures are from the other day when jmejr was allowed to hold the camera and take pictures. I thought I would post them either again or for the first time because I can not remember if I posted them before:
