Brooks was baptised on Sunday. Thomson wiggled to get out of Gus' arms and talked the whole time. But Brooks did great and it was a special day. I have so many hopes and dreams for these boys. Chuck preached on 2 Samuel 24:18-25 - King David, Araunah and the threshing floor. "I will not offer burnt offerings to the Lord my God that cost me nothing"(v 24). A relationship with God requires sacrifice, sacrifice should cost us something. Any success in life should come with some sacrifice. Monday is Halloween and Thomson wants to be a trash man. I made some calls and tried to create a costume, but in the end I decided that this is not the year for homemade costumes. So he will be a cowboy instead! He has a horse and everything!

"Bebe Books" has his first cold today. We are hunkering down in the house and working to get him feeling better. Nurse Thomson is in full force - bringing the Boogie Wipes, testing the Baby's medicine (Tylenol for Brooks, Gatorade for Thomson), pushing him in the swing. Thomson has started getting in Brooks' face and talking in a high-pitched tone, mimicking my baby talk. This morning he brought over a burp cloth and covered Brooks' face when he was lying on his back. Luckily I was sitting right there. (He was trying to wipe his mouth). When Brooks' nose or eye starts running, Thomson lets me know that the baby has "trash". So sad to see a little one sick!!!
