From the Mouths of Babes

Alan seems to always have a lot to say and it is usually very entertaining. So I thought I would share two recent anecdotes.

Sunday night at dinner I was asking what everyone learned about in church. When I asked Alan he told us they talked about animals and everyone had to think an animal. Then he informed us "when it was my turn I thought of BattleCat (from Heman) and my boy teacher thought it was cool."
All I could say was "I am sure he did."

Then the other day I was feeding Bryce in the family room and the kids were playing in the front room when a very excited Alan came in and said, "We are killing a spider. So when is it going to be resurrected because it's gonna die."
I just said "when Jesus comes again"
I guess that was enough for him because he ran off to help Emma.

We always LOVE hearing "Alanisms". You guys must be teaching him well if he knows all about resurrecting spiders! ;) Well and about Heman of course!

Alan has been constantly entertaining, pretty much from the moment of his birth! Thanks for sharing and for asking what they learned in Primary and for teaching them about the gospel!
Love always,

So funny!!! I love it! I wanted to ask you a question: Do you have any good ideas for easter treats that kind of "teach" kids about what easter is really about? I've heard a couple cute ideas, but I'd be interested in anything you may have come up with. Miss you guys!
