Favorite Things

I thought I would share a few of my favorite things that I am using this year to help me study God's word.

The first being the Scripture Reading Plan I am using provided by the Journey church. I like it because if you get behind it is easy to get caught up. :)

The second is what I am using to help me memorize verses. I have always wanted to memorize Philippians and shared that desire with my husband. He directed me to this site which has a VERY helpful guide to memorizing Philippians!

Conversation with Emma

Emma went in her room, closed her door and I could hear doors/drawers opening and closing. Me: "Emma what are you doing?" Emma: "I getting a 'fweater'." Me: "Are you making a mess in there?" Emma: "I not making a mess." Me: "If you did you are getting a pop." Emma: very non chalantly "Okay!" Emma comes in the livingroom with some clothes from the top-drawer of her chest of drawers. Ding, ding...she's standing on her chair...AGAIN! Us: "What did you do?" Emma: "Not anything." Josh: "Did you stand on your chair to get your clothes." Emma: "I did not." Josh: "I'm going to go look, if it is where it shouldn't be you are going to be in trouble." Emma: "No, don't go look." Josh walks off, Emma sinks back into the couch, waiting... (I would be running and hiding). Emma got a pop, they talked and Emma said "I not puposed to do that anymore." Let's hope she has learned her lesson...but I'm thinking it is a daily lesson these days...ugh!

Emma Funnies

Emma has been saying and doing ALOT of funny things lately! I jotted just a few of them down today. Yesterday Emma was taking a bath, I was doing laundry and I heard her saying "Can you say ca-len-dar. Can you say ca-len-dar." She was teaching her little toys! I asked her if they did that at school yesterday (her first day back) so she told me a little about that! :) Today I was cleaning Emma's dreadful room, she found her little children's bible, opened it and started saying "the heaven and earth, the heaven and earth". That is all that she got out...not sure if that was a lesson at school today or not...definitely cute. She then turned a few pages and found some cartoon drawn wise men, she began pointing at each of the men and said "that Mrs. Lisa, Sydney & Mommy!" How kind! :) We look like cartoon men! :) Still while I was cleaning Emma's room she found my old cell phone that is now "her" phone, she opened it and said "Hello, this is Mrs. Branum, Lacey Branum"! Seriously, I don't know where she got thatfrom. I have NEVER called anyone and said "this is Mrs. Branum". I guess she just hears the kids call me that when she is at my school. It definitely made me laugh! She then looked at her phone and said "Mommy, skype not on here, I need a new phone!" Yes, Skype is MAJOR thing for us! :) Tonight, just before bed, Emma put my shoes on that I wore today and said "Oh, my feet are killing me!" I asked her if I said that today and she said, yes Mommy!!! Oh she makes me laugh!
