One night we were having a discussion about our family rules. I asked the girls, “what are some of our family rules?
Isla: No shooting. Oh, I know! No opening the door to strangers
Ruby: No opening the door to bears!
Ruby’s prayer one night: Thank you for Jesus dying on the cross all the children of the world so high little star. (???)
“I’m not a lazy butt. I’m Elizabeth Ruby butt.”
Ruby gets in trouble for being silly instead of focusing on eating her dinner.
Ruby: I’m making you laugh.
Me: But Ruby, that isn’t funny.
Ruby: I’m making mineself laugh!
Ruby’s version of the advent story…
“Mary married a young carpenter named Jofus.”
“…and wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in the pot.”
Ruby: What are blessings?
Me: Good things that God gives us.
Ruby: Like dirt?
Look at the beautiful clouds! Quick, before they pop!
Caleb: What were some blessings God gave you this week?
Ruby: Like AH-CHOO!!??
