Cora has been cracking me up lately with the things she says.  I recently went on a ladies retreat to Gatlinburg with some women from our church.  Cora and Cohen stayed home with Daddy for two nights in a row.  IN the car the other day, we heard Cora saying "Cohen, say 'Gatlin'.  Say 'burger'.  Say 'Gatlinburger'."  I said "Cora, its actually 'Gatlinburg."  She then began questioning me about my trip and asked if I had played games in Gatlinburg.  She wanted to know who all had gone on the trip with me.  Finally, when she had seemed to have heard enough, she said "Mommy, when I grown up, I'm going to be a mommy, and I'm going to go to Gatlinburg."  

Tonight at church someone in our vicinity said something about the sun shining on them.  It was 8 oclock and quite dark at the time.  Cora piped "There is no sun."  

Another something Cora has taken to doing lately, which we all highly enjoy, is making up her own praise songs.  She's actually been doing this awhile now.  Sometimes she takes bits and pieces of songs and sings them over and over.  Like "Blessed be the name...Blessed be the name....Blessed be the name of the Lord."  But other times, its entirely her made up song "Jesus Praise. God Holy.  Praise.  I love Jesus. Sing praise.  Holy, etc. etc etc."  I guess this comes from listening and observing Geron and the praise team as they rehearse on Sunday mornings.  

Speaking of singing, my final cute thing for the day is Cora's latest rendition of Jingle Bells.  I don't know if someone has been singing it at school or if she's just remembering it from last Christmas, but lately, Jingle Bells has been one of Cora's favorites.  She's just got it a little mixed up...

"Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Open wide and sleighhhh...."

We get about that far.  I've tried to sing with her and refresh her on the actual words.  So far, she's having none of it.  So, for now, have fun as you open wide and sleigh...and if you figure out how to do whatever that is, let me know.
