My Kid Says the Darndest Things

Last night we were putting JPW to bed. Below is the conversation G and JPW had.

G-"JPW who do you want to thank Jesus for?"

JPW-"Ummm Bobyn(Robyn), and Donalds (translation McDonalds)"

We were cracking up! He was thanking Jesus for good ole McDonalds! How precious is that! I can't do a post without a picture so below is a picture I took a few weeks ago. Yes, JPW has a baby. We bought it when JPW was potty training. You can feed the baby and it goes potty. We would tell JPW to watch Baby go potty. Now he has a huge attachment to "Baby" as he calls him. "Baby" has to be covered up every night with JPW. My son is so sweet! Guess we'll have to get rid of "Baby" eventually but gosh it's just cute right now!

Need Help in the Kitchen?

A friend of mine gave me the link to this great website E-mealz! You sign-up for $5 a month and you receive easy dinner recipes weekly. It seems like I cook the same things over and over so I'm excited about some new dinners! Along with recipes you specify the store you shop at and it gives you a price breakdown and a grocery list. This price divides out to be $1.25 a week. I don't mind paying someone that to make my grocery list! I hate making my grocery list! And I sure could use some budgeting help at the grocery store! I never come out of the grocery store under $200 every other week! Isn't that insane? I thought after JPW got out of diapers my cost would be cut some but apparently I've found somewhere else to spend that $20 because I'm still not saving any money. So I'm trying this website out. Dave Ramsey recommends it too! By the way if you type in "Dave" as the promotional code you receive $2.50 off. Try it out and let me know what you think. I'll post my progress soon! Happy Cooking!

Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

JPW has a new favorite song (we've try to get him away from the phone song) it's Take Me Out to the Ball Game! JPW has his own spin on it-there are 10 strikes instead of 3. Yall will be proud I'm not driving this time while recording-G is driving. Don't you just love JPW's vacuum! He carries it everywhere! Hope yall enjoy! I think we have a performer on our hands!

You have to pause the music player to the right to hear this.

Amazing Concert

We took JPW to his first concert Friday night to see Casting Crowns! I don't know of a better band that we could have taken him to see. He was so excited! JPW LOVES music! It was cloudy all day and we had a few showers so we weren't sure if we were going to be able to go. We got there and gave JPW his ticket. He was just walking in like he knew exactly what to do. Along with the great weather-JPW was on his BEST behavoir!

One of the most amazing things happened. When Casting Crowns was playing "Praise You in this Storm" The sun dropped down from behind these dark clouds. And shined across the whole crowd. I know that was the Lord shining down on us! The Burnham family weighed on my heart at that time. They are coming up on the anniversary of little Matthew going to heaven on June 20th. Please keep them in your prayers. When that sun shined down on us I knew he was reminding me to always praise him in all the storms we face in life. What an amazing God we serve!

Here's some pics of JPW's 1st concert and one AMAZING night!

My Kid Says the Darndest Things!

JPW says some of the most hilarious things! I keep telling myself I'm going to write them down so I'll remember them. So I decided to start blogging them here. Welcome to the 1st edition of My Kid Says the Dardest Things! Please feel free to copy this to your blog and do your own edition! Even if your little one isn't making words yet-please do this. I miss those days of cooing! And if anyone can create a blog button for this I would be so appreciative! I never realized how complicated those things are to make!

JPW and I were on the way home the other day and JPW proceeded to say "I'm gonna spank you Mommy" Well I was driving, of course, and instead of correcting him I'm pulled out my camera to try and get him to repeat it. Watch the video below and Enjoy watching a two-year old threaten to spank his mommy. It was cute this time but next time I'm sure I won't be pulling my camera out first!

"The Pone Song" also known as "The Phone Song"

Ha! Ok so I love "booty music" as I refer to it! And it looks as the my boy has picked up this from his Mommy. I'm careful about what we listen to not only for him but for me too. He loves this song and he gets really mad when the song ends. I told G we've got to get this burned to a CD. Watch this video....yes I'm driving and recording again. I'm watching the road and holding the camera behind me. No comments from the peanut gallery...they may have outlawed texting but they haven't outlawed photography/videography in the car. ha! Enjoy the future JPDUBB!
Oh and he is getting a haircut on Tuesday!

Bestest Friends in the Whole World!

Do you have that one friend that you can tell anything? A friend that will be there no matter what? A friend that will pray with you over the phone? A friend that you call when you have that really big decision to make? A friend that you just instantly clicked with? Well that friend for me is Beth! And she moved this weekend to Georgia! Boo Hoo! I'm super excited for her and Jon! And I'm so proud of them for following the Lord's will for their life! I could write pages and pages about how much they mean to me and G! The Lord brought the 4 of us together for a reason and our lives have been blessed by their incredible friendship! We had a going away party for them last week. It was so great to have all of their friends in one place. We are going to miss them sooo much! We know that these past 5 years are is just the beginning of the lifetime friendship we'll have with them! We love you Jon, Beth and Tanner!!!

JPW's 1st Swimming Lesson!

Today was JPW 1st swimming lesson! I almost drown twice as a child so we knew if JPW got my swimming skills we may be in trouble. Ha! It makes me so nervous when he's around water! I was a little worried about how he would do today but he do SOOOO Good! Mommy was so proud! When we first got there he was like no way but then Mrs. K got him to get in the pool. One of the other teachers had to hold him for a little while but then he warmed up. The parents stay on the porch-I had to hide behind bushes so he wouldn't see me. He kicked around the pool, put his head under water and jumped off the side! He is the youngest in the group-she usually doesn't take kids until they're 3 years old. He was so happy when they were done. He said "Mommy I kicked" I took him to get a Sno Cone after his hard day at swimming lessons. He got "Bue" thats blue. Ha! I'm excited to see what they'll do tomorrow!
