Church Escapades

My Prince!
My Princess!

Webster defines escapade as "playful behavior". That describes these two angels to a tee:) They are my niece and nephew. I love them to pieces. Aren't they just the cutest things! So you ask, what does church escapades have to do with these two? Well, where do I begin? Let me just say...if we all went to church with as much enthusiasm as these two do...there is no telling what kind of revival would break out. They LOVE church! At our small country church we are blessed with lots of children. I love to see them all run up to the stage to perform for the church as they sing to the Lord. Don't you know how much he loves these little ones. They are truly a blessing. No pun intended!
So let me get to the funny part.....these two have some dancing genes let me tell you. Nephew decides it's time to...well I'm not sure what happened...all I know is he tumbled down a few steps and my sister C, being the stand-in choir director for them, picks him back up and proceeds to place (throw) him back on the stage while she is dancing around her long skirt trying to keep her balance and lo and behold, he tumbles AGAIN! Need I say more? lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!lol!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!lol!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!!!!
BTW....all the LOL's is the congregation:) I had some people behind me asking was that sister C that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Sister P plays the piano for them and she quits playing because she's laughing hysterically. After they manage to finish singing, nephew makes it down the steps, all the while he is holding his hand over his head like he is in a daze and then lays his head down in our Pastor's lap. Our Pastor hands out Smarties after they finish singing every Sunday to each kid. Naturally nephew would stop by there first....he's got the goods! After receiving his prize he stands dazed in the aisle, then finds Mawmaw and gets some loving.
I'm telling you these two are a mess! They are 17? months apart. So my brother and sis-n-law have their hands full. Hang in there......they will be grown before you know it! I love you all dearly!!!
You never know from Sunday to Sunday which one of the kids at church are going to make us laugh or smile. What lessons we can learn from humble ourselves before Him and praise his Holy Name with song and dance!

They're a lot of fun...but tiring. Right now they're fighting over whether they're going to watch Cinderella or Cars. I said "How 'bout Veggietales" NOOOOOOOOOOO that aint gonna work. J's in there now trying to make some peace. I'm going to bed!
