Since it was Jon's b-day last Sunday, Jonah is asking everyday whose birthday it is.
So, today we are celebrating "Mum's" (Jonah's Lambie's) Birthday!
And today at lunch Jonah prayed and thanked God for "Mum's" birthday. How cute is that?!

Elisabeth: "It depends if it knows Jesus or not."
Jonah: "Oh. I yuv Jesus. I want to go to Heaven!"

Today Jonah and I were sitting at the kitchen table making pumpkins out of construction paper.
Jonah: "Thanks for doing this, Momma, that was weally nice of you!"
Me: "Do you know why I am nice to you Joe?"
Jonah: "Cuz you wuv me."
Me: "Yup! When we love each other we try to be nice to each other."
Jonah: "And if you died I would be weally sad."
Me: "Uh, good, I guess."
Jonah: "If I BONK you on the head you would died!"
Me: "Well, then please don't bonk me on the head."
Jonah (looking a little confused): "Okay, Mom, I won't."

Jon's new nickname for Ava:
"Cookie"
She's a little cookie-monster! And now she actually has molars so she can really chew them. :)

Recently (hey--it's only been a month ago) we took a trip up to Lake Chelan to go camping. We went with William & Heather, Stewart (Jon & Heather's cousin from Kelowna, B.C.) and his wife Tobi and their baby, Jacob.
We stayed for four nights and had a blast. The only problem was the weather!
But it was so nice to finally meet Jacob and spend time with our friends who also happen to be our family.
The following five pictures are from that trip.

We are currently without either set of grandparents and the kids are feeling it:

Ava: "Nana?"
Elisabeth: "Where's Nana, Ava?"
Ava: "In RV"

And sitting next to my sister April:
Jonah: "Where's Gampa? I haven't seen him in a yong time."

Jonah is loving preschool and especially loves his teacher Sharon. The other day when we first arrived, he followed her around for a few minutes. She was talking and didn't notice that he was following her. It was adorable.
