Prayers

We've been working on saying prayers with Hollie. For a majority of the time, our attempts are vastly unsuccessful. On rare occasion, however, our prayers go something like this...

"Hollie, let's say prayers," & she immediately folds her arms.

Me: Dear Heavenly Father
Hollie: Jabber, jabber, Habaaba Faazada, pause
Me: Thank thee for this day
Hollie: Jabber, jabber, jabber, day, pause
Me: Thank the for mama & dada
Hollie: Jabber, jabber, mama, dada, pause
Me: Thank thee for Jesus
Hollie: Jabber, jabber, Jesus, pause

No lie. Every single pull-your-hair-out parenting moment is worth it for times like these. I have never known greater joy than watching my sweet one year old talk to her Heavenly Father.

Hey Crystal! Yes, that is our bed. I'm redecorating our bedroom & bathroom right now. I have lots more painting to do. :O) I'll post pics of it all when it's finally done.

Sam! It was so good to hear from you! Hollie is so cute!

So sweet. I love when they do things like that. I remember when Hailey was one she'd fold her arms and meal time before any of us would. She's knew right what to do.

I love it. I totally agree with you. I love listening to CJ say his prayers. He is starting to bless more than mama, daddy, and Uncle Jesse. He is now including his dogs, Elway usally twice and other family memebers. It is awesome. I can't wait to hear Hollie say a prayer!
