Welcome....Here's a glimpse of our happenings!

The verses that have REALLY spoken to me (Sarah) lately....

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. I Peter 5:8-9

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:26-28

May the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:32-33

God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation. Deuteronomy 29:29 (The Message)

Luke Randoms, Part 2....

Click HERE to see yesterday's post about "Luke Randoms" (and sort of why I'm doing them).

This morning was filled with some simple "hanging out at home" as well as the normal Monday Morning Grocery Shopping for the Friesen Household.

After I got out of the shower and was getting ready, Luke hung out a bit with me in the bedroom.

This following photo is not posed....he was very much watching Elmo on Sesame Street at the time.

There's one big thing to look for in this photo, and it's really only important probably to Marc and me....

If you look closely underneath his sippy cup, you'll see a coaster.

"Why is that important," you might ask?

Nearly all of the time, when I go and take a shower, I have something really cold or something really hot with me (today -- it was hot tea in a regular ol' mug). So, I nearly always take a coaster with my drink of choice with me in the bathroom. Luke obviously has observed that.

When I got out of the shower, he immediately ran and got his sippy cup and brought back a coaster.

Apparently now, one, including Luke, must ALWAYS use a coaster with his or her beverage in our home :) Thanks Luke for that observation!


While I was finishing up getting ready, Luke did his usual and got our shoes out of our closet. Usually, he puts on Marc's shoes. Today, however, he was putting on my Keen sandals.


Later on, in the kitchen, Luke was caught looking through his Papa Book. The Papa Book is a homemade book I made him. It has photos of close family members and close friends. I created it so that Luke would learn to identify and say names of people who we associate with quite a bit. It's been a very good thing for him. We call it his Papa Book since generally, he's wanting to see Papa's picture (my dad).

(And Andrea -- in this first photo, he's looking at Ava's picture).


Then, we headed to Wal-Mart to grocery shop....

And yes, that's Marc's University of Texas visor around his neck -- a favorite of Luke's.


When we got home, I had Luke decorate a birthday card for his Grandma Friesen (Marc's mom)....Today's her birthday, and I'm a day late on getting cards out to her. And nope -- I wasn't crafty enough to actually make a card for her (I'm not the crafty type). So, Luke decorated a store-bought card -- which I know she will be very pleased with his decorating :)

And, as you can see, Luke did his decorating with a pile of his little cars very much near him.

Here's the final product -- I did my best (unsuccessfully) to keep stickers and crayon marks OFF of words in the card. But again, Marc's mom won't mind (and I'm 99% sure of that).

And very soon after that, we got that card in the mail....She should receive it tomorrow.

(Don't worry -- Marc's mom will not see this card ahead of time because it's on this blog....They're not internet users).

I told my kids long ago, don't you dare try to tell the grandkids how to decorate a card or letter. I can tell you, from my own gramma point of view, we don't care HOW they decorate the cards, all we care is that they DO. Their little hands can color over words and pictures, they can put stickers and other what-nots on top of them, too - we don't care... it's the love from our grandkids ON those cards that counts. ♥

Happy birthday to Grandma Friesen! :)
