"For to come to know Jesus intimately, as he is, as he wants to be known, is to release a redemptive landslide in your life."
-John Eldredge in Beautiful Outlaw

Oh what fun the last few weeks have been!
Belle and I made cookies for her class Christmas party today. I have had a blast volunteering in her classroom twice this week (once to paint their Christmas party shirts and again today for the party)!

 Ever the nurturer, Belle grabbed an extra cookie to save for case her classmates ate them all up and left none to bring home for him!
 We made gingerbread ornaments, macaroni wreaths, gift bags, snowflake ornaments, and reindeer food!
 When I walked in the classroom, several of her classmates exclaimed, "Its Belle's mom!" This is new to be known by my child's name, but I liked the sound of it ringing off their excited little voices.

 and because I simply cannot emasculate my son any longer, bookended as he is by his lovely lady siblings, I am trying to neutralize their bedroom a little at a time. I've posted enough pictures of him dreaming in pink...I had to even the score a little.
 He is ever the boy, pink sheets or blue. But for the sake of his tiny man ego which may very well one day resent me for allowing the pink to go on so long...I post a shot of penance.

no good reason

there is no good reason for this video. just a whole lot of muscle flexing by judah, silly singing by belle, and a little glimpse into their sweet selves. thursdays can be long with daddy gone all day (usually for the 2nd or 3rd evening in a given things can get a little wacky trying to keep ourselves entertained).

if we don't scare you away, hope you enjoy!
