Family Friday!

Big week at the Stordahl house! HUGE! TREMENDOUS!! One of those weeks mother's pray for from the time their babies are born, maybe even before your babies are born if you are really virtuous!

We had Vacation Bible School at our church this week. The theme was Ephesians 6:11 Put on the whole armor of God that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil." Each day there was a clear presentation of the gospel message, lots of fun activities and crafts to go with the theme, and it all tied together very well. The WHOLE group of kids was great, a very well-behaved bunch, not a single trouble-maker among them.

Anyway, on Thursday Haley had a rough day. She did not do a good job showing self-control and threw a fit, and wouldn't share the ball at game time. (Poor girl, I guess she was the trouble-maker! ;) ) When we got home Michael chatted with her, and gave her the appropriate punishment. Afterwards she was whispering something and through her tears she told him, she was whispering and asking Jesus to save her from her sins! My heart is rejoicing for her even at this minute, and if you know me, you know the tears they are a flowin'! Praise God for His mercy and grace even in the life of a child, and praise Him that He got my sweet Haley Pie at a young age! Praise Him that Michael got to participate in such a tender moment in her life, what a treasure that will be for both of them.

This is just cute, had to share. She really liked having the glasses on and left them on for a long time. Usually babies just yank them off and then proceed to snap them in half or break a temple off.

This is one of Jeremiah's latest predicaments. I don't know if you can see it in the pictures very well, but he got the cap of a flashlight stuck in the roof of his mouth. And in the second picture you see the tools we had to use to remove it. He looks rather chipper in these photos, but trust me, it was not so easy, and he was not so happy...

This is my friend Sherry. She took me out for a girls' afternoon. We had lunch at a sushi bar downtown, she had sushi, I had a burger! Then we went to Harwin Street which is jam packed with little stores and shops, which are in turn jam packed with cheap junk for sale, but most of it is really fun cheap junk! And after that she took me to the Hong Kong Market. I have never seen so much weird stuff all in one place! I loved Harwin Street and hope to go back before we make our departure from Houston, but I don't know if I can stomach the smell in the Hong Kong Market again...it was very....fishy...rotten fishy.

Hope your week was as wonderful as ours!
