Snowed Ice! Water heater...and pics...

It snowed ice today! We woke up and we had a semi-winter wonderland outside! Since breakfast had just begun and I had gasped before thinking...I forwarned my boys that what they were about to see was not what they thought it was...(ice instead of snow)...because I know my sons. Jump-out-of-your-skin squeals were about to follow with choas errupting and heading for the door to play in the "snow".

I said "now...listen...Josiah and Jude...what I'm about to show you is not what you think it is ok? So don't get tooooo excited..." I slung open the blinds (a little too dramatically...part of me was really enjoying there inevitable excitement...just not enjoying the thought that breakfast would be threatened and ear drums might be busted)...and what came...

"SNOW SNOW SNOW...JUDE IT'S SNOW!!! AHHH!!!" (lots of squealing)...then I jumped in when I had the moment...and stated..."No one goes outside without finishing their breakfast pita first...OH AND you have to get suited up!"

It was fun but they came back in about 30 minutes after their little fingers could take no more. Josiah loves icicles and he even found one that looked like a music note...and in the circle part there was a frozen leave...pretty neat if I do say so myself. What do you think? (Oh and by the way, that goofy lookin face is him singing the note he's holding...hehehehe)



Once Josiah and Jude came in...Josiah's fingers were frozen - Jude likes to watch so his weren't popsicles YET...so I brought Josiah over to the sink and turned on the cold water and let him put his fingers under it and slowly let it get warmer and warmer. Then I was reminded that this little boy has spent the past 4 years of his life in Thailand when he said:

"MOMMA! How is this happening??? How are you doing that? HOw does that work?" I had to get clarification because I saw nothing out of the ordinary and then it dawned on me that Josiah has never used a sink that has hot running water coming to it. He's had hot showers and baths but he's never used a sink that had hot water ability (well, that he knew about - because on furlough he was to young to try the other knob to get hot water).

He continued on "So you just inject the hot water through there?" INJECT?!?! I answered "yeah, kind of...you see there is something called a water heater" He starts looking on the wall to see the water heater...because in Thailand the water heater for the shower hangs on the wall...I taught him about water heaters in America and how the hot water runs through pipes and he was amazed...

Ready to go...

Cutie Pie!!!

Sitting pretty...

Thank you God for my wonderful children...

That's so great! It's like watching them explore their world all over again. Remember the amazement at new things when they were babies?
