The Chronicles of Biscuit - V.D.T.

The Chronicles of Biscuit - Stories about our youngest son, Tyler, whose nickname is Biscuit.

For the past few weeks, we've had a countdown from Biscuit. He wakes up every morning with the same enthusiasm, "Dad, you know it's just _____ more days!", or "Dad, you remember April 8th, don't you? You better not forget!", and this morning, "Dad, two more days before V.D.T."  My husband just goes along with the conversation, but sometimes teases Biscuit that he's forgotten.

Ever since Biscuit saw a sign with the DVD release date of "The Chronicles of Narnia:  The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" he's been all fired up.  The Narnia movies are his very favorite movies and he and his dad enjoy watching them together.  My husband decided from the beginning, that no matter what was going on for tomorrow - ballgames, meetings, anything else that might come up - he had to take Biscuit to Walmart some time after work.

Biscuit might could be described as "obsessive" about some things in his life.  He's really into numbers and can remember them better than I have ever been able to!  In fact, he's pretty handy to have around because he always knows the correct date for "today" and for whatever else I might need to know.  I don't need a calendar!  Kind of neat.  Kind of unique.  And totally Biscuit. 

By the way, this is why all of the "Biscuit" blog posts are titled under "The Chronicles of Biscuit".  It just fit him perfectly!

I haven't seen this Narnia movie or any of them except the first one though the rest of the family like them (the other three kids like them, too, just not to the same degree as Biscuit does).  I just don't like people/animal mixed creature "thingies".  They give me the heebie jeebies - you know what I mean?  But, I do like the way author C.S. Lewis used his books (on which the movies are based) to share his Christian beliefs.   His stories are amazing and the way they relate to the Bible is interesting. In times of need the lion, Aslan, is always there to help and protect the movie/story characters...just like Jesus is always there for the Christian.  And also in the books and movies, good always prevails....defeating evil.....signifying that God will always prevail over Satan.

So, yes, V.D.T. is tomorrow, April 8th.  Don't forget!  I'm certain that this important date won't be forgotten in our home.  Biscuit would never allow that to happen!

Have a great weekend everyone!  (I've felt like it's Friday all day today, so I'm ready!  I'm sure you are, too :).

I love you, Biscuit! And, I'm so glad God gave you to me!
