Last night the whole family was spread out on the couches watching our favorite Sunday night series, The Bible on the History channel. It got to the part where Jesus is in the desert, having fasted for 40 days and Satan arrives, in the form of a snake.
And then he's in the form of a sort-of human in a black cape...and when we saw his face both Ben and I gasped and looked at each other, and as our eyes met we knew we were having the very same thought.
"Don't say it!" I whispered at him. I didn't want the boys to hear us and repeat it.
But sure enough, one of the boys said "Satan looks like Barack Obama!"
And they were right. Here's a link to the picture.
Now, I'm not a huge fan of the president, but I respect the office he holds...I also don't go around equating him with Satan...but I'm not gonna lie, I chuckled.
Today I found an article from the producers of the show, they claim he bears no resemblance. Pffff. Again, I chuckled.
These are the things that entertain me during the Winter That Never Ends where I live.

Let's Random, shall we?
- It's March 11th and we have, yet again, another snow day. It hurts. Is it possible to overdose on Vitamin D supplements? In my head I keep chanting, spring is coming spring is coming spring is coming. Because it has to.
- Lucy is going to be three next month. Wow. She loves Dora, Strawberry Shortcake and most recently: Spiderman. I love being home with her...even on the days that she makes me crazy.
- I have a new baby niece named Ella. She is the cutest.
- We have been watching The Bible on the History channel on Sunday nights. The boys love it. It's been a great opportunity for dialogue with them. They get annoyed with us pausing it all the time to tell them background info or to explain that certain parts of the movie didn't really happen like that. But it's the perfect opportunity to see the Bible come to life and fill in truth in their lives.
Spring is coming. Right?
