Shine Like Stars

Shine like stars in the universe as we hold out the Word of life (Phil. 2:15)
We're not trying to be rock stars but just shed some light on a sad and lonely world. Stay tuned for how God works through weak and tired, sometimes really cranky vessels.

Why you shouldn't go to McDonald's playland

Today we were eating lunch at "Old McDonald's," as the boys call it, and I see my friend Missy's face gloss over with shock...I followed her eyes to Nathan's little, naked bootie. I ran over and I pulled up his pants and said what are you doing? (through lots of laughs) He giggled and said "I don't know. I forgot I was twying to take off my socks."

This reminded me of 2 years ago when we were at a busy, really large, filled the whole ceiling playland. When I look at the bottom of the slide and see a pile of clothes. Horrified I realized they belong to my son. Then I look up and through a little, plastic window see a completely naked Caleb. Michael brings him down and asks him what he's doing---"I'm a tiger. Tiger's don't wear clothes." It's true about the things being funnier later. I thought it was pretty funny then but now I think it's hilarious.

You never know how many naked booties have been in those plastic germ stations. In our fam alone it's been 2.


  1. Hilarious! I love it. Next time I see a naked boy in a play land, I'm going to look around for you to see if he's yours :)

  2. wow. think about the ones that take off their poopy diapers. ewwwww. I clean the kidzone at the YMCA and clean the ball pit out. I have no horror stories just yet but I've heard about the McDonalds ones having old burgers and dirty diapers and such. GROSS. I'll take a naked baby over that other stuff anyday!
