At Roman's school this week, they've had dress-up days all week. The first day, they wore their pajamas. (Get out of here...PAJAMAs?) and the second day, they had to dress up like someone from another era so Roman picked dressing up like a Gangsta. (Gangster in normal language) Here is a picture of him from that day.
I mean really...does it get any cuter than that?
I found a winter coat for him at the Boeing Store. He is all about being in the military right now so I got him a fighter pilot jacket and surprised him with it on Monday after it arrived. He was so excited when he was telling his Dad about it that he couldn't speak clearly. It came out "Dad, loo loo, Can you believe, look what GiGi got me....loo loo...it's a 'for reals' fighter pilot coat." You have to imagine all the gasping breath sounds in between all the words. I can honestly say that I have never taken a kids breath away in excitement before. It was amazingly adorable. (Mark one up for GiGi...whoo whoo)
We are looking forward to our Friday off tomorrow...it will be our first day with no one in the house in two months. We are almost as excited as Roman was about his coat...ROTFL.
Well, that's about all the news for now. Here is some more from Max on Grace...(my favorite subject)
"Make it Personal
By Max Lucado
Christ took away your sins. He endured not just the nails of the Romans, the mockery of the crowd, and the spear of the soldier, but the anger of God!
God didn’t overlook your sins, lest he endorse them. He didn’t punish you lest he destroy you. He instead found a way to punish the sin and preserve the sinner. Jesus took your punishment, and God gave you the credit for Jesus’ perfection. As long as the cross is God’s gift to the world, it will touch you but not change you.
Precious as it is to proclaim, “Christ died for the world,” even sweeter it is to whisper, “Christ died for me!”
For my sins he died. He took my place on the cross. He felt my shame and spoke my name. Thank God for the day Jesus took your place, for the day Grace happened to you!"
