Bubbles and Crawling

Scripture of the day: "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!" -John 1:29b

Well it's a new day and I thank God for it! I am so thankful for a fresh start everyday. I hope you have a great week planned or maybe you have no plans (which are the best plans of all). We had an amazing weekend and the weather was so wonderful.

Last night Hubby and I went to a concert called WinterJam. It was so much fun and I am going to post about it some time this week to let you know what great works God did in us. God is a God of love and compassion and I thank Him for it!

I titled today's post Bubbles and Crawling because Bear played with bubbles all weekend and Fuzzy Duck started crawling this weekend.

I went Friday to Wally World and got a huge bottle of bubbles for Bear and they are all gone. He sat out on the porch for, literally, hours and blew bubbles and laughed. I took about a million pictures because he was so cute. Whenever it was time to come inside each day he would get worried about his bubbles and what would happen to them sitting on the porch. Poor guy!

Fuzzy Duck started really crawling on Friday. He had been rocking on all fours for a while and then last week he just took off. Now we have to keep a very close eye on him. He actually got caught under the coffee table at one point. He didn't know what to think. Bear thinks it is hilarious and laughs when he gets into something. He is a great big brother! So, now we have a busier house than ever. But it's the happiest it's ever been!
