A couple of my recent conversations with Eli...
Yesterday as we were preparing to leave for Costello Thanksgiving at John's parents
Me: Come on Eli we're going to Grandma Anne's for dinner. And there's going to be mashed potatoes and stuffing and rolls and turkey. Doesn't that sound so yummy?
Eli: I want to pet it
Eli: I want to pet the turkey
Me: Oh, no buddy we can't pet it. We're going to eat the turkey, for our Thanksgiving
Eli: Oooohhh, that sounds like fun
And tonight around the dinner table
Me: What did you learn in Sunday school class today buddy?
Me: What about Jesus?
Me: Oh, wow Jesus and God, thats really cool. Do you know where Jesus lives Eli?
Eli: Right there, (pointing) in the pantry
Not quite sure where that one came from, but we definitely enjoyed a good laugh. And a good reminder to work on our theology
