I had a VERY proud mommy moment this past weekend!!! I'm sure daddy had a proud daddy moment, too:O) Sometimes, I wonder if Corban is really paying attention/listening to me...I'm sure every mommy often wonders this! Before bed, Caleb or I always read the Bible to Corban. At nap time, he has the choice of reading his Bible, or a different book. Most times, he chooses the Bible...*BONUS #1* :O) When I read to him at nap time, I feel as though sometimes, I'm the only one hearing my voice. Here comes *BONUS #2*............
This past Saturday, Caleb's dad(Papa)called and asked if he could take Corban to the Honda motorcycle store. Every Saturday, the Honda store always cooks hotdogs and they have somewhat of a customer appreciation day. Caleb and I(and Cruz!)needed to pick up a few things at Lowe's, which is right by the Honda store, so this plan worked out perfectly! Papa and Corban did their thing, while we did ours! While they were at the Honda store, a man from a motorcycle ministry was passing out flyers that asked if people knew how to get to Heaven. Corban was quick to the punch with his answer!! Corban told the man, "Jesus died on the cross for us. And the soldiers came and took him away. Jesus wore a prickly hat that made him bleed and he has holes in his hands from the nails. And then Jesus died and went to Heaven. I wanna go to Heaven and give Jesus a hug." OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! He does listen! When Papa told Caleb and I this, I felt my heart grow wings :O) I love this kid SO much and I'm SO thankful that God put him in our lives! I'm eternally grateful that God is working through Caleb and I to raise such a Jesus Freak!!! We are beyond blessed with Corban and Cruz! At this rate, Corban will be a pastor by the time he's 10!

These were the words of wisdom given to Corban from his Nana(Caleb's mom). We were all driving in the car and I kept saying this quote over & over to myself because I loved it so much!! This is how the best art is created! Nana was the Bethel School art teacher for 25 years, before she retired due to health reasons. She loves everything about art! She won several awards, including the 'Oklahoma Art Educator of the Year'!! On her 50th birthday, when Corban was just 10 months old, he "painted" a canvas for her! Here's the proof:
We decided to continue this tradition for Cruz! Last weekend, Nana celebrated another birthday! We had Cruz "paint" his canvas for her :O) Cruz enjoyed his "Monet moment" so much, that he decided to use his ENTIRE body to paint!
And here's the finished product...Cruz, of course! Bath time immediately followed :O)
Naturally, we couldn't let Cruz have ALL the fun, Corban made a mess as well :O)
Here's to you, Nana! Happy Birthday with many more to come! We love you!
