A Perfect Body

Eden was pretending to die, then come back alive.

This brought on a little conversation between us about the resurrection.

I explained that when we die our bodies change and become on and so forth.

After I was done Eden got excited and exclaimed,

"When I die, I'm going to be DARK PURPLE!"

Someone at the 4th of July Parade: "You are so cute!"
Eden: "Yes. I. Am."

Later that day...

Grandma Sakamoto: "Eden, are you cute?"
Eden: "No. I'm not cute. I'm BEAUTIFUL."

Guess we better work on humility.

Hotel vs. Home

While driving to find a hotel in Grand Junction...

Eden: "Mom, I like hotels better than a house. It smells clean and you don't have to sweep or mop."

That may have been a personal stab at the cleanliness of my home...

Grand Junction

We stopped in Grand Junction on our way to Utah to find housing.

Mom: "Eden! We are in Grand Junction!"
Eden: "And there's a sign that says, 'Grand Junction Loves Eden!'."

Where You Go When You Die

Eden: "I'm dying! I'm dead."
Mom: "What happens when you die."
Eden: "You go to Heaven."

Eden: "I came back alive!"
Mom: "Oh good!"
Eden: "Oh, I'm dead again."
Mom: "Are you going to Heaven?"
Eden: "No. I'm not going to Heaven this time."
Mom: "Where are you going?"
Eden: "To Arizona."
