Sunday Cuteness

When we pray the kids are usually pretty prompt about folding their arms.  Lately I have been trying to step up level of reverence at prayer time by having the kids bow their heads and close their eyes.  At church when it was bow your head time I would gently push the head down and tell them to bow their heads.  They have translated that to mean that when I say bow your heads a hand is necessary to push the head down.  Harry saw Evan doing it and he now eagerly uses both hands to roughly push his head into position.  I find it quite hilarious and have a hard time not laughing every time they do it.  Evan is also very amusing with his attempts to close his eyes and keep them closed.  He kind of moves his head around like Stevie Wonder when his eyes are closed.

The kids also adore playing on my bed.  Since the weather has started to cool we have been spending more time indoors.  I am sewing a jacket for the dress I am wearing to my sister's wedding.  It has been great to be able to have them in the next room entertaining themselves while I am able to sew in relative peace.  They are both old enough to (most of the time) respect the boundaries of the bed and not fall off.  They are also tall enough now to be able to get off and on safely. How they can spend house just hanging out on the bed I am not sure.  It is not even like they are jumping on the bed like wild little monkeys.  A lot of the time they just haul their blankies from their bedroom and just snuggle under them on our bed.

That's too cute!

My kids love my bed too.... but my bed is super high and it makes me nervous so they don't get to do it that often!

We say prayers with our 22 month old boy. We've been doing it for months and months, before bed. He can't quite get the sign of the cross though, but instead he thumps his chest four times. I think it's the sweetest thing ever...

They love your bed because it smells like you and daddy. Little ones are very attune to our scents. My little boys 3 yr old and 2 yr old now, love to snuggle on my bed for a minute or two. I can't even get them to snuggle into their own beds that way.

Very sweet Sunday cuteness.

I love the image of both hands pushing the head down!

We are quite proud of Emma, who has progressed to saying quite wonderful, complete prayers, unprompted, and reverently.

Even Bridey is learning to fold her hands and keep quiet.

Ha, the pushing down of the head made me laugh!

Jacob likes to "sleep" on our bed too - but only for a minute or two at a time. :) I laughed over prayer time. We have similar and different struggles at prayer time and I often find myself trying to smother the giggles. :)
