JANA ROCKS!!!

This week at MomSpace we had The One and Only Jana Alayra come to speak and do a concert for us. Needless to say, someone was a little star-struck:



Our evening concert was amazing and I wish I had lots of pictures for you to see, but my memory card was full, of course. Imagine hundreds of multi-colored balloons arched across the stage and all over the room, two hundred little dancing children in a mosh pit, and me singing my heart out to all of the great Jana songs I have come to love over the years. It was a blessing to work with Jana and her husband Ron all day and I encourage anyone to go to one of her concerts, she is a truly wonderful woman.

Our Easter









This year we celebrated Easter at my mom's house and with my brothers and Cousin Avery. The kids had fun looking for eggs and I had fun taking pictures of some majorly chubby cheeks.

Palm Sunday

Me: "Olivia, what did you learn about in Sunday School today?"

Liv: "About how Jesus rode into town on this day and he was on the back of a donkey and all of the town people lined up along the street and waved palm trees at him and shouted, "SUSANNA! SUSANNA! SUSANNA IN THE HIGHEST!"

Me: (choking on my laughter) "Wow, Liv, that's really great."

Bedtime Prayers

video

This is Brennen praying before bed... it's a version of the Lord's Prayer, in case you couldn't tell. Sometimes his raspy voice gets in the way...

"Father God, You are great!

Help us do whatever You say,

Give us our food every day,

Forgive us when we disobey,

Help us choose to do what's right,

Keep us safe both day and night,

For You're the God of everything!

Forever You will be our King!"
