Faith is Not Believing that God can, It's Knowing that He Will

Three Crazy Monkeys that Live At My House

This post is for my three younger brothers, Gabriel, Titus, and Levi. They range in age from ten to four and half and they are boys to the very soul. They love anything crazy, wild, disgusting, and silly.
Sometimes they make me crazy, but I love them very, very much!:) If I didn't have brothers I wouldn't have had many experiences.
I would never know how it felt to be tackled around the legs while they try to prove that their stronger than me.
I wouldn't know that sometimes it just impossible for a boy to sit still.
I wouldn't know so much about  Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett.
I would never have the chance to watch them play baseball.
And I would never have known how little boys love grossness.
Gabe is ten. He's laid back, he loves baseball, Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett, he loves to create things, he loves to figure out how things work, he likes blood, guts, and violence, and he likes Fess Parker and John Wayne. He is tender hearted and gentle. He has a great imagination. He's good at math, and he likes science. I like to spend time with him. We get along well. He likes when I read out loud and when we watch I Love Lucy and Oliver! together.
Titus is wild. Wild, crazy, charming, and lovable. He has a big personality, he has a big mouth (and I mean that in the best sense!), he is funny, quirky, and loud. He's a cool kid. He likes to sit by me when I work on a project at the sewing machine and make things with scraps and string. He is very sweet, he enjoys being a pest, but he is never mean. He adores Lily Kate, absolutely adores her. He has a tender side. And he loves chocolate like I do.
Levi, my little buddy. He loves to sing and listen to music. He as crystal blue eyes and when he talks he kind of speaks with a lisp sometimes. He is so funny and quirky, he has a bad temper but when he's in a good mood he is SO much FUN to be around. He likes to climb on the counter while I bake and he asks lots of questions. I read to him before he goes to bed sometimes and he always wants me to sing My Jesus Loves Me, God is So Great, and He's Got the Whole World in His Hands. His love language is words of affirmation. He will tell you, "Your gorgeous and pretty and beautiful!" He loves to give compliments.

My brothers are a pack, they wrestle, play, and invent things together. They love Tom and Jerry, sweets, and battles and fights in movies. Boys are so different from girls, they live very loudly and they do some of the darnedest things. They love to be loud and they love to make a mess. They are crazy and lovable. I'm very blessed to have them.

Abigail! Thanks for your comment on my blog. I've only tried water skiing once before and it is super hard. I never even made it all the way up! It takes a lot of leg muscle and balance...and I'm not quite there yet. =)

Hey Abigail! I also LOVE Chris Tomlin's version of Amazing Grace! and yes, I had a wonderful first Independnce day in the US, thanks! :) I loved the pictures of your brothers, they are just sooo cute! It was nice reading about them, I'm only child, so it's nice to get to know a little on how it's like having brothers and sisters! Lily Kate is your little sister right? she's sooo cute! :) and happy late b-day to her! I pray many more will come and that she'll be a great girl! :) God bless you!

Hi! I found your sister, Lydia's blog from another blog and now I have found your blog, too. Brothers are very different from sisters, they have fun in very different ways that's for sure. I'm looking for staff members for my up and coming online magazine called Bloom! Magazine. If you or anyone you know would be interested in being a writer, photographer, or graphic designer for the magazine, please visit the website located under my name. Thanks! We would love to have you or your sister on our team.
