Pay it forward

Here is a fun thing that I saw on a friend's blog. If you would like to do it with me, please leave a comment!
Here's how it works-the first 3 people to leave a comment on this post will receive, at some point during the year, a handmade gift from me.What it will be and when it will arrive is a total surprise! The catch is that you must participate as well-before you leave your comment here, write up a pay it forward post on your blog to keep the fun going. (Or you can cut and paste from this one like I did)
Then come back, let me know you're going to play, and sit back and wait to receive your fun gift!! Remember that only the first 3 comments will receive a gift from me, so hurry, hurry, hurry!

Old Testament laughs

So, the other night we were reading the Old Testament reader with the kids. Now, my kids do their best but it takes a lot to retain their attention. So we do things like have them say the peoples' names or places to keep them tuned in. Well, we were reading the story of Esther and when I went to have the kids repeat her name, Jessica got it, but Joshua said, "Es-dirt." We chuckled and said, "No. It's Esther." He said, "Es-turd." We laughed and laughed! Eventually he got it, but I just thought it was too funny...Es-turd!
