“Dear Heavenly Father, we are very thankful for this day and that I could play dress up with my friend. Please bless that we could have a baby sister and a crib to put her in. Be sure to give it to my mom when it gets here. Please bless that Santa Claus will be safe and…MOM! HEY! WHY ARE YOU SMILING?”

“Because I love you too much.”

well made offspring.

“Oh, okay…in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.”

  23. I also love that she thanked God for such a small gift … being able to play dress up with her friend. We don’t thank Him enough for the little things. It’s heartwarming to know that she acknowledges and is thankful for that.

    The picture is wonderful … you both have the most beautiful blue eyes!

    Camilles last blog post..Fish out of Water

  33. Every night, my 5 (1/2…the 1/2 is important among the Kindergarten set) year old son says, “Dear God in Heaven, Thank you for this day, thank you for me, mom & dad. Thank you that we can have a baby someday…” Everyday is the same start to the prayer. The middle and end might change, but never that first part. It makes me cry. Some days, just out of the blue he’ll say, “Mom, I just want a baby.” and then I say, “Oh, son…that makes three of us”. After trying for almost 3 years, it’s tough.

  34. i seriously could die from her cuteness!!
