just a few things...

i don't have any pictures to post, but i do want to remember some cute moments:

*when bill took the girls to see the disney princesses the other night, i asked josiah, "hey buddy. it's just you and me! (and adalyn, but she doesn't count) what do you want to do tonight? we can do anything!!" his response, "ummm.... maybe we can spell some words!" seriously, kid? he ran down to his room and got his magnadoodle, then plopped next to me and started spelling and sounding out every word he could think of:) smarty pants!

*the next day at the supper table, he counted from 1 all of the way to 100!! y'all he just turned 4 in august?? is this normal???

*josiah is also into the weather. my personal favorite is when he looks out the window in the morning and says,"mom, it looks like it will be parts of cloudy today!" (partly cloudy)

*speaking of weather... while in the car this morning, the kids were looking at all of the rain clouds in the sky. at one point, you could see blue sky peeking through the clouds and they got very excited! (i think everyone at the davis house is tired of the rain.) the clouds were spreading more and the blue sky was getting bigger and brighter. then we turned down a road and the sky got dark and gloomy again. ella kate shouted from the backseat, "hey!! did jesus change his mind?? or was that nonny doing that to us??" i asked her what she was talking about, then she replied, "i mean, is jesus making it rain or is nonny up there with him playing a joke on us? i thought it was gonna be sunny!" :)

*lately, ella kate has been talking a lot about nonny and heaven. she wants to know if nonny is older than jesus and if jesus is a cute little baby or a big "daddy". she also thinks it is TOTALLY awesome that nonny gets to hang out with noah and mary and joseph:)

*this was a while ago, but i never wrote it down. while in the drive thru at starbucks one day, ella kate asked me, "why does that starbucks girl have pig hands?" i didn't have a clue what she was talking about until she pointed at their mermaid logo girl... then i immediately laughed!:)

*i should save this for another "redneck" post but since i don't have a picture of it, i'll just go ahead and share.... you might be a redneck if you have had a pair of panties (that are miley's) laying in your front yard for over a week. i am not quite sure why she took them off, or why they are even there, or why they are STILL there (even as i type this). my original excuse was that it was raining and wet and muddy when i first noticed them. but then my excuse turned into that my hands were always too full to go out and take the extra 4 steps to get them. my kids have even played outside and none of them volunteered to grab them, so if you drive by my house and see some lime green polka dot panties laying in the grass by our tree swing, just know that i WILL pick them up soon! (and give them a good cleaning! i am sure that they are all muddy and full of critters by now!)

*the other night we were running late on supper, bath times, teeth brushings.. everything! everyone was sick (including adalyn who had rsv) and it was just a crazy night. i was putting the baby to bed and bill kissed the older 3 and rushed them into their beds. miley got a pouty face and said, "but daddy, we didn't do our botion yet!" (devotion) the kids really enjoy reading a bible story/devotion every night followed by a sweet prayer time. we have to remember what is really important and try our best to slow down... even if they go to bed a little later than usual:)
