Random thoughts #22: Oscar, kids think, & 7

“I’ll call him Oscar.”
“Oscar? You can’t name a lamb Oscar. You name a lamb Fluffy…or Cottonball…But you don’t name a lamb Oscar.”
-Paws & Tales kids radio show

“Ten days after I turned 8, got my lips stuck in a gate; my friends all laughed. And I just stood there until the fire department came and broke the lock with a crowbar and I had to spend the next 6 weeks in lip rehab where I met this kid named Oscar who got stung by a bee, right on the lips, and we couldn’t even talk to each other until the fifth week cuz both of our lips were so swollen. And when he did start speaking, he just spoke Polish, and I didn’t know but like 3 words in Polish, except now I know 4 – because Oscar taught me the word for lips.”
-Veggietales “I Love My Lips” silly song

Took me the longest time to figure out what Larry was saying in that ^^ monologue ๐Ÿ™„ 

“He’s my pet and his name is Oscar. He’s mine.”
-kindergarten girl, of a fly buzzing around the room.

You don’t want to hear how these giraffe puppets took so much time and hassle to make. You just want to see the cute picture. So here you go. ๐Ÿ˜›

Bright teal and cherry red hibiscus make me ridiculously happy. ๐Ÿ˜€

Going out of your way to step on and crunch the few dried deciduous leaves = fall in Southern California.

Wintery crafts are the best!

Me to two middle schoolers who were fighting: “It takes 2 to tango.”
One of the middle schoolers: “Yeah, but…but…it takes one to…play video games…”

If coffee is warmed in the microwave for 22 minutes instead of 2, the smell takes over 2 months to go away. ๐Ÿ˜›

“I call it, “Victory of Life”!” -kindergartener in a melodramatic voice, of a pattern she’d just decorated her paper with XD

According to a 1st grader, you can “speak Texas.” ๐Ÿ˜›

When the Carl’s Jr. root beer tastes like it’s been mixed with sweet tea ๐Ÿ˜•

Straightforward kindergartener: “Once I had something go in here [points to arm] that touched my blood to see if I could have eggs or not.”

“A hacker is someone who goes on a computer and makes your technology not work.” -2nd grader

Do you know how hard it is to arrange 7 things in a perfect circle?

Now a half circle or mountain, that’s not hard:   

 Speaking of 7, and of 7 stars, I really like how the symbol for Aragorn’s kingship is the same as Jesus’. 8)

I came across this verse in my daily Bible reading:

And He had in His right hand seven stars: and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword: and His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. -Revelation 1:16

That’s our Jesus!

Random thoughts #4: Christmastime

A Hershey kiss has the. pur-fect. amount of chocolate ๐Ÿ˜Ž

So, the kindergarteners were having recess on the playground . They were playing animals and shouting out who they were: “I’m a cheetah!” “I’m a shark!” “I’m a lion!” And then one says, “I’m a human with power!”

We were at the Coffee Bean the other day. I got a “hot vanilla,” finished most of it, got a sample of espresso and put that in, added sugar, half-and-half and a dash of cinnamonโ€”and it turned out pretty good! Kept me fueled through a day at work ๐Ÿ˜‰

*happysigh* finished college classes and got time off work. No school + no work = a very relaxed Christmas season ๐Ÿ˜€

Oh hey. On Sunday, Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning set an NFL record for most number of touchdowns in a season!!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

If you’re in the SoCal area, a very neat place to visit is Trinity Broadcasting Network’s building in Costa Mesa. They have grounds full of beautiful flowers and architecture year-round, but at Christmastime they make it sparkle with thousands of lights! See pics here: http://thisisourfathersworld.wordpress.com/2013/12/24/festive-lighted-verdure/

It’s more exciting to watch football when it’s snowing wherever they’re playing.

Y’know how they say that giving beats getting? It’s true. I’m super excited about the gifts I’m giving my family this year ๐Ÿ˜€

And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, โ€˜It is more blessed to give than to receive.โ€™
-Acts 20:35

Enjoy the peace and joy of this season, and thank God for sending His Son to Earth.

Merry Christmas!

Here is Michael Crawford’s awesome version of one of my favorite Christmas songs, “Mary Did You Know?”

Has Shadowfax been replaced?!

Be not afraid, ye beasts of the field: for the pastures of the wilderness do spring, for the tree beareth her fruit, the fig tree and the vine do yield their strength.

How precious also are Thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!ย If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with Thee.

~ Psalm 139:17-18 ~
