Day 316 - November 11, 2015

I was laying in Briar's bed tonight as I do every night after bedtime stories. I asked Adelyn what song she'd like me to sing and she told me she had to think about it. I told her I would say our bedtime prayers while she thought. I prayed for a while about Great-Grandpa Enns trying to put death into words they might understand. I sobbed quietly and then I heard a little voice coming from the bunk bed above me.

"Are there beanstalks in heaven?" Adelyn asked.
"Maybe," I replied.
"God will climb down the beanstalk and get Great-Grandpa and take him to heaven."

I pictured God climbing through the clouds down to the room where Grandpa lay with his daughters around him.

"Are you crying, Mommy?" Adelyn asked.
"I'm okay, sweetheart. I'm just a little sad."

Briar rolled over and kissed me on the head.

"Sing 'Somewhere Over the Rainbow', Mommy."

I sang through tears remembering the first time I heard Grandpa sing to the love of his life at my mother-in-law's dining table. I can only imagine the overwhelming joy that will be felt in heaven tonight when Grandpa is reunited with his sweetheart.

Day 314 - November 9, 2015

Adelyn had her final gymnastics class of the year last week and ever since then, she's been eager to show friends what she learned. She hops onto a curb, a low brick wall or a bench to show off her balance beam skills. She practices her forward rolls on our living room floor and she's taken her trampolining skills to the couch. A few days ago, she began climbing the door frames and now refers to herself as Spider Girl!

After watching her big sister attempt to scale the wall, Briar asked to give it a try. Adelyn grabbed my phone and captured this sweet shot.

Day 312 - November 7, 2015

Adelyn's been asking to decorate the Christmas tree since she finished trick-or-treating on Halloween night. We finally gave in this morning and, other than the burlap garland, we let the girls put the Christmas decorations on by themselves. It may be a little bottom heavy, but it's beautiful!

Day 311 - November 6, 2015

The girls have been begging to wash the car ever since a bird left his mark on the hood a few weeks ago. Today, I set them up with sponges and a bucket of soapy water and walked inside to grab the camera. I walked back outside to hear Briar singing, "It's a hard knock life for us." Adelyn lasted about 5 minutes before she left her sponge on the ground and went to the shed in search of the Christmas decorations. Meanwhile, Briar had the time of her life and continued to wash the car for the next hour!
