Coming in Spring of '09

Do you remember these girls?



They recently rocked the house singing "Silent Night" at the preschool Christmas program. 

Truth be told, it was more of a lip sync, but the off-key, a capella version that Lilly practiced at home will be the one I etch in my memory.

Apparently the girls are on a spiritual high, because they recently informed me that they're starting a Bible Study.

I can only imagine it will be full of fantastic teaching, deep sharing, and lots of personal growth.

"So girls," I asked them, "What are you going to do at Bible study?"

{I pause, waiting for some profound spiritual truths to come rolling off their tongues.}

"We're going to pass around a sign-up."

Hmmmm...

"What are you signing up for?" 

I tilt my head and squint optimistically.

"Snacks!"

I readily admit that excellent food and a cute notebook add more to a good Bible study than they probably should.

Mostly, I'm hoping the girls go with a MOPS format and include a guest speaker who shares on topics like "Cheerful Room Clean Up," "You're FIVE--Start Sharing!!!!" and "Beyond Macaroni and Cheese."

For the record, our next Bible study leaders did not learn this from their mothers.

Oh, and here's the coveted "Silent Night" footage.

I am DEAD SERIOUS PEOPLE when I say that immediately after filming, she said, "Now will you let me do a silly version?"

I just laughed so hard I think I might have split my gut. She is so stinking cute!

This video is currently #1 with Hads (even over Barney - shocking). She points at the computer and says, "I see Yi-yeee sing?" and then "sings" along.

Hilarious blog!!! I don't think I've ever been to a Bible Study where there hasn't been a signup sheet. It's only fitting that a five year old Bible study would have one too. I want to hear the silly version of Silent Night.

(Hi, I'm Angie, I wandered over here from Robin's blog...nice to meet you!) :)

HILARIOUS!! I'm so glad there was something that made me laugh until I snorted after getting all teary and emotional reading Lilly's b-day post.
