"Can I pray too???"


Alyssa's been so cute lately when we pray...she'll ask, "can I pray too?" Usually her prayers are short and sweet...for example, if it's dinner time she'll say "thank you God for our food, amen."

So, tonight Nate and I were both praying for her and thanking God for the 3 wonderful years we've had with her...for example, "thank you Lord for Alyssa" etc., etc. When we were done she asks if she can pray too. We look at each other like ok sure, but wondering what is she going to pray for...and then she says, "thank you God for me."

Michelle,

I'm not going to tell her you said that, because up until a couple days ago if someone asked her her age she would say 6! I have no idea why she picked that number, but now we've finally got her to say 3...if I told her someone thinks she looked like she was 6, I think we'd have to battle with her all over again. ;)

I love that! I also have to say thank you God for Alyssa! She is absolutely precious and we're blessed to know her.
