Just a few quick stories about the kids...Yesterday, Aaron took Joshua for a little walk and I stayed home and tended the other rugrats. I was reading a book and paused to listen to the antics of Arwen and Noah. This is what I saw and heard...First, Arwen ran from the kitchen into the family room and looked at the couch. She said, "Oh, no. Where is your body? I see you folded your sheets up. Jesus, Jesus, where are you Jesus?" Then, from the other side of the room, Noah said, "I'm here Mary." Arwen yelled, "Jesus, my boy. Where were you." As Arwen wrapped him in a big hug, Noah said, "I resurrected." Pretty good huh? Second, today, as I was reading yet again, Arwen picked Larkin up and put her in her little pink chair. Then, they gave Larkin Noah's little set of scriptures. Arwen said, "Laban, we need the brass plates." Noah, who informed me that he was Nephi, swiped the scriptures and ran. We haven't gotten to the part where Nephi cuts off Laban's head...that's tomorrow. I can't wait to see how they will act that one out!! Poor Larkin has to be big fat, nasty Laban!! At least Joshua got a break from being the bad guy...he had to be Miss Hannigan from Annie the other day :)

It's so neat that your children are not only hearing about the gospel but really learning it. Have you received those tapes yet? I love that Arwen and Noah are understanding the atonement...who says that children can't understand these things? You guys are such good parents.
