Make Up

This morning while stopped at a red light on the way to school, I was rubbing foundation into my face when this question was asked:

Gabriel: "Why do you put make up on, Mom? So your face looks normal?"

In God We Trust

Today Gabe was looking at a $20 bill in the back seat that I let him hold to pay for basketball camp. As he started at it intently, he asked me....

"Why does it say 'In God We Trust', Mom?"

Me: "Well, our country was founded on God's principals in the Bible, and America is a place where we put our faith in God to protect and guide our country."

Gabe: "Well... how come there are so many people in America who don't trust in God?"

Great conversation that followed about free will, freedom, putting our faith in things other than God and what happens when we do that. Love that my little guy is becoming quite the thinker. :) Love his questions, even when they're tough.

Knock Knock!

Gabe: "Knock Knock!"

Justin: "Who's there?"

Gabe: "Banana!"

Justin: "Banana who?"

Gabe: "Orange you glad I didn't say banana?"


Gabe: "Mom, can we watch Shiloh? It has a lot of good lessons in it!"

Me: "Like what?"

Gabe: "Don't kick puppies."

Deep Thoughts: by Gabe

Driving home from church tonight in the Miata with the top down; Gabe looks up at the sky and thoughtfully says,

"The moon is a crescent tonight. I think that the crescent moons are God's fingernails, and the full moons are his head."

W.W.E. Squirrels

Gabe: "Mom! Look! Those squirrels are wrestling!"

Me: "Whoa, they must be REALLY mad at each other."
