Totally smitten!

I just had to capture this little darling!

Johnny has really taken to soldiers and learning about war ever since we went to honor the soldier that died a couple of weeks ago. Kyle has talked to him a lot about what it takes to be a soldier and what freedom is-- the cost that it means, but the glory it brings to God, self, family, our country, etc... We read and watch everything we can get our hands on. I pray that God will use this [now little] boy in a mighty way! That he will be a missionary starting now even at the young age of 8!

Joseph (the son of my childhood best friend, also my moms godson) has been with us all week- he has played war with my boys everyday, all day! We will be sad to see him go home!! He is such a joy!

Following in daddy's footsteps

I'm washing the truck and I look over to see what the little boys are doing, this is what I found! I asked Justin what's wrong with his truck just to learn that the oil was bad and needed changing!
I don't think I can say it enough how much I love being a momma to little boys!!!

Justin and his critters

Meet Tweety the Frog, because he croaks really load. Justin's newest addition (for the day) to the Griffin clan!

I absolutely adore this boy!!

I have BOYS!!

I open my freezer and what do I see, frozen toys. It started with Han Solo-- which is hilarious to me. Never would I have thought about freezing him. I love being a mother to little boys!

We've won the lottery

I know Justin is only five years old, but he was a little less than good (hot and sleepy) while we were standing on the roadside watching a soldier (who died fighting for our freedom) being escorted home. As I stood there watching them pass by with tear filled eyes I was reminded of how we American's are all entitled toddlers. We [undeserving] were born here and have won the lottery and take it for granted.

I felt proud to be standing there-- that's all I could do for his family to show them our support. Johnny learned an important lesson today; one that I think will sick with him the rest of his life!

I really wanted to post the video, but it's not allowing me. Guess I'll try posting it to facebook...

God Bless America!

Because Justin wouldn't help his brothers clean up his punishment was to sweep the kitchen and computer room. Uh yeah, it backfired BIG time! Kyle and I were walking back into the living room when we here Justin's little giggles as he says, "Best. Day. Ever!" Then giggles again.

I should have known. He loves to help! Oh well, good to know...! I think this boy needs a little personality, what do you think? :)
