Bed Time Story

Last night, as we were winding down for the day, Trey decided he wanted a story. The babies were already in their jammies, and all four of us were snuggling in our room on the bed together. Well, some what. There was alot of jumping, rolling around, hiding under the covers and snuggling going on.

When Trey said he wanted a story, I thought he meant he wanted me to read to them. Sometimes at night, instead of singing to them, I read them a story. I think Anna Grace and I were on the same page, because she immediately got down and ran to their room, and brought back two books. But, Trey wanted to tell us a story. So, here is how it went....

Once Upon A Time...Once Upon A Time there were frogies. Ribbit, ribbit, ribbit.
And chickens. Bock, bock, bock. And they went into the snake-eee woods. Scary. And there was a scary wind, oooooo. And they hid in the sticks. But, the wind is not scary, so they not be scared, anymore.

I thought this was a very sweet story. I know the snake-eee woods comes from watching Miss Spider and the Sunny Patch. And the other night we had a big storm with lots of wind and rain. It was scaring Trey, because the wind was so loud and it was wobbling the tin roof over the back patio. I had a talk with him about the wind is not really scary, it's just very loud. And, I raised the window and let him look outside to see the rain coming down and how hard the wind is blowing. It helped him, not to be afraid of the noise, and I think that's where the end of his story came from.

It's just so fun to see how they connect things and put ideas together. I was very proud of his story telling and thought I'd take the chance to capture it here, so, I can come back and read it later. I also, need to write it down in his baby book.

Hope everyone is having a good week. ~Blessings!

That is so sweet. :) I need to get better about writing down all of the cute and funny things my girls are always saying. They crack me up. And I am always so blessed when they say something that shows they are really starting to grasp some things about the Lord.

Have a blessed week!
