And the 600th post goes to...

... Noah's recent artwork. He doesn't often draw a picture, so I was a little amazed at this one.


... I love this song:


(Sorry I couldn't find a better video of it.)
This is how I still feel about Jason...

When You Say You Love Me

Like the sound of silence calling,
I hear your voice and suddenly
I'm falling, lost in a dream.
Like the echoes of our souls are meeting,
You say those words and my heart stops beating.
I wonder what it means.
What could it be that comes over me?
At times I can't move.
At times I can hardly breath.

When you say you love me
The world goes still, so still inside and
When you say you love me
For a moment, there's no one else alive

You're the one I've always thought of.
I don't know how, but I feel sheltered in your love.
You're where I belong.
And when you're with me if I close my eyes,
There are times I swear I feel like I can fly
For a moment in time.
Somewhere between the Heavens and Earth ,
And frozen in time, Oh when you say those words.

When you say you love me
The world goes still, so still inside and
When you say you love me
For a moment, there's no one else alive

[bridge:]
And this journey that we're on.
How far we've come and I celebrate every moment.
And when you say you love me,
That's all you have to say.
I'll always feel this way.

When you say you love me
The world goes still, so still inside and
When you say you love me
In that moment,I know why I'm alive

When you say you love me.
When you say you love me.
Do you know how I love you?

... who just turned 7!

This morning, Jason took Jabin with him to town to get his tires changed, which is kind of a big deal to the little guy. It's a big pain in the bum to transfer the carseat over to the truck, so usually, it's one of the bigger boys (who have graduated to the easy-to-move booster seats) that get to go with Daddy. Jabin was so excited to go in the truck with Daddy! They went and had a snack at Tim Horton's, went to the garage, went to the gun shop... you know, "boy stuff." :-)

Jason said that by 11:00, though, Jabin was saying he wanted to go home and see Jude and Noah and Mommy. "'Cause I like them, and I love them." Awww...
