Bed time

April 24, 2011, 2:39 pm - James Farrer

Alex didn't want to stay in his bed last night so this is where he ended up. I'm honestly a little surprised they fell asleep together, but it was quite the sight to walk into.

Smart kids

Abby: I just made the hi-yo go down and up once.
Mommy: (to Daddy) We have smart kids.
Abby: Of course you do!

This morning Abby called Alex a waffle eating machine. I love my kids!

Family Home Evening object lesson for the kids

April 3, 2011, 7:52 pm - James Farrer

Ingredients:
1 flat plate
Milk - enough to cover the bottom of the plate
Black Pepper
Dish soap

The milk is like us. When we're doing what's right we're nice and clean. But sometimes we make mistakes and sin (add pepper all over the top of the milk here). When we do that we get ourselves dirty. Not the outside but the inside. Being dirty isn't much fun. Fortunately we have a way to get clean. Just like when we take a bath to clean off mud; we can repent to clean off our insides. We first need to try and fix whatever we did wrong. This could be giving a toy back that we took, fixing or replacing something that we broke, or giving someone a hug if we hurt them. Then we need to apologize. When that's done we need to pray and ask Heavenly Father to forgive us. Once we've done this the power of the atonement makes us clean again (put a drop of the dish soap in the middle of the plate and watch the pepper move away to the sides to show the clean white milk).

That's what we did for family home evening tonight and the kids loved it.
