II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

My funny girl

Tonight while Brooklyn is away with her friends at church, I was putting away her laundry. As I walked past her door my leg hit something so I looked down and this is what I saw:
(you might have to click on the picture and blow it up to really see it)

As you can see, it is her Door Belle. So cute that she spelled "bell" that way. One of her best friends names is Belle--so that's the way she thinks it is spelled! ha ha
It took me a good 30 seconds to decipher what in the world the "instructions" were over there on the right side. It says:
*Blow
*on
*Strol (straw)
That straw is one of those really squeaky kind so if you blow on it, it sounds like a loud whistle. She is so funny. She locks her door all the time to keep her brother out and it drives me nuts when I can't get into her room...so I guess she decided she needed a door bell! She already asked me earlier today, "Mom, when's the soonest I can get a cell phone?" I said (while distracted by 3 things cooking on the stove at once) "umm, probably when your around 13." She replied, "ALL RIGHT!! Dad said I had to wait till I was 18!" Oh boy....are we there already??

too cute. I saw the "doorbell" and thought "ahhhh, the innocence! the creativity!"

and then two sentences later, she wants a cell phone - ha! go figure :) My BILs and SILs are struggling with this choice all of the time. Most of them, though, have gotten their kids phones once they turned 13. Yeah, it sounds young, but if there are strictly enforced rules on phone usage, or if it's one of those phones that can only call 911 or their parents, then I guess it isn't so bad. It's when they get into the nonstop texting and hour long phone calls that we need to worry. Hope this helps :)

Remember being in a big hurry to grow up? It can be so overrated sometimes . . . .

I love it! Door belle. And the instructions are just priceless.

P.S. Mason got her letter yesterday and was SOOOOO excited. He opened it in the car. He will definitely write a response tonight. Such a fun idea.
