I remember seeing a sign in the pediatrician's office about milestones babies reach and at what age they happen. I saw that "imaginative play" was listed between the ages of 18 months to 2 years. At the time I thought that was crazy because babies that age were too young to understand how to use their imagination. I was so wrong! Asa pretends all the time now. He turns his food into airplanes, he shares with his stuffed puppy, the list goes on and on. I managed to capture a couple of pictures of Asa in the tub the other morning while he was doing some of his "imaginative play". Here he is with his little people man and a squirty tub toy bird. He set them up to face eachother and pretended they were talking, playing, jumping, etc!

It was so cute to watch and I am amazed at how fast he is growing up.

Fitting for the Season.

I'm sure most, if not all of you, have heard this story about the painting of Christ which was salvaged from the remains of the Provo Tabernacle. The loss of the historic Provo Tabernacle was such a sad thing. It was a place built and dedicated for the purpose of worshiping Christ. I went to many meetings in that building and sang in choirs there too and I always loved the feeling that historic building held. This article tells the story perfectly:
At this time of year, it is always nice to hear stories like this one that make us think about the reality of Christ, his purpose, his mission and his love for us.
Merry Christmas to everyone!
