So I can't really believe that I have yet to blog about this, but... I am an Aunt! Again!
Tobias Marshall Lawson
was born on Monday
June 20th, 2011
He and mom are fantastic.
Wendy had him right here...at her house.
I watched some kiddos downstairs.
I am in such awe - of Toby and my sister.
I heard recently that we, adults, should be sure to install a since of awe in children.
Awe in God and in our Savior.
If we do not they might begin to see awe in themselves -
that they are the center of the universe.
Well ladies and gents - we are not the center of it all.
He created Toby - he gave my sister the strength to be a great mom.
A mom that will use all that she has to teach her kids that Jesus is their Savior (I have no doubt).
I have never been around anything this cool - this astounding and incredible.
I am so lucky.
Pictures to come soon.
In other news -
the two oldest and I made sidewalk chalk paint today.
Yes'm, I said paint.
We had the BEST time (well until one decided that the trashcan was something we could paint)!
I highly recommend this activity.
So easy and fun.
yes, he is in his pjs.
no this does not make me a bad Aunt :)
He painted a turtle
He helped me with a butterfly.
I had lots of fun too -
like maybe I will do this when I get home too :)
Then it rained - so the happy Aunt doesn't have to clean up.
And perhaps we can do it all again tomorrow!
Sidewalk Chalk Paint -
Equal amounts Cornstarch and cold water
(I used 2 TBSP of each first - that was not enough for us)
Add food coloring (4-5 drops, or as desired).
