I immediately grabbed the camera (well okay maybe i mumbled a few words in my head first) and took some pictures. Then I discussed with Parker why it would be necessary to ask first next time before making such big traps. The pictures don't do justice. Wish you could have seen it up close. :)

it is program supported by The Samaritan's Purse ran by Franklin Graham. This year it was especially sweet because Parker was old enough to really grasp the meaning of helping the children and the value it holds. We discussed the children and their life styles. You can imagine the surprise when daddy explained that these children have no electricity or running water inside their homes. He was shocked! We went shopping as a family and the boys selected items to fill their shoe boxes. Paxson wanted a lot of balls.....imagine that! :) Parker wanted a lot of really big things and we had to keep reminding him that it has to fit inside the shoe box. We ended up with several toys, books, play dough, floam, toothbrushes, bible character figurines, balls, and candy. On the way home Parker said "oh no we forgot clothes." I didn't understand what he was saying. He said "we forgot clothes for the kids." I am sure you can imagine what happened next. It was a great Sunday Afternoon.

It so difficult to decide which precious moment of Paxon's to share. He is at the age when literally everything they do is so sweet and precious. Lately he is really into saying "love you". Really that is all it takes.......he looks up at you and says "love you". You are pretty much putty in his hands. Watch for a special post soon!
Lately, Parker has been very curious about growing up. The other day in the car he asked me if I would have his babies in my tummy or if he would. I reminded him that only girls can have babies in their tummys and shared that his wife would have his baby in her tummy (Stumbling into VERY dangerous area). He replied okay. Wheee it stopped there for now. A few minutes later he asked how he would know who he was going to marry. We talked a little and I reminded him that it is far off and that he has lots of time to be a little guy and play and grow up. Our conversation seemed quiet for a bit. Then he looked at me and said "mommy I want to find a girl just like you!" I smiled, he said "I want my wife to be just like you!" I smiled and tried not to completely break down in tears as I was driving. Then he said............. " When daddy gets home from work I will ask him how to meet a wife like you."
While preparing for snack in my classroom we were saying a prayer and I looked over a child to see why he was removing his hat. My initial response was that a friend was taking it from him. Remember we are only 2 and sharing is not a strong point for us. I continued leading the prayer watching him for a brief moment. Get ready......... picture this..... a little blond hair blue eyed 2 year old cowboy (boots, pearl snapped shirt, and rodeo number pinned to the back of his shirt) removing his hat and covering his heart while we said the prayer. I seriously teared up. PRECIOUS!!! I looked at my aide and said.. oh my gosh this little guy is going to break some hearts.
Now if you are not laughing a little or at least a little weepy.....shame on you for not enjoying precious moments. :)
Live, Laugh, Love
