excitment and thoughtfulness

No pictures this time, but boy I wish I had my new flip mino camera going during this conversation yesterday.

Me, "Hey guys, guess who is getting married?"
Kids, "Who?"
Me, "Aunt Annaliese!"
Kids, "oooh"
Me, "And guess who's going to be in the wedding?"
Kids, "who?"
Me, "All of us!!"
Kids, "Wow! (said slowly with really big eyes) Cool!"
Haven, "When? Tomorrow?"
Me, "no. I'm not sure."
Haven, "I should get her a present."
Me, "what do you want to get her?"
Haven, "Well, we could get her turtle bowls."
Me, "Turtle bowls?" (they got turtle bowls for Christmas)
Haven, "yea, so one day when she has kids her kids can eat cereal."
Gibson, "I should get Bret a gift."
Me, "What do you want to get him?"
Gibson, "I don't know. Maybe daddy can help me. Oh, I know. I could get him a lamp.... or....or... a light for outside cause they'll have a house....OR....OR...... I could get him something to use when he's cooking. Does Bret like to cook?"

What sweet kids I have.

So precious! I agree, your kids are wonderful.

Speaking of gifts, how nice for Andrew that he will have another guy to hang out with when all the Chiles/Imholz Klan shows up.

Poor Ruedi. He never got that from me!!!!!

How sweet!!! If Haven needs a set of Turtle Bowls to give to Aunt Annaliese, I will see if VBS has any more sets. ha!

Their first thought was "giving". How rare that is in this world. How typical that is in the Littleton family.

You DO have precious ones! I have their pics on my fridge and pray for them every time I see it. And with how much I love food and cooking, you know I see that fridge a LOT! haha.
