Johanna's First Prayer

I pray with Johanna every night before putting her to bed. Usually I thank God for the day and whatever good happened that day, ask for a good night's sleep and then ask Him to bless "Grandma, Mommy, Johanna and all the little children everywhere."

Last night Johanna was sleeping with me. Several minutes after we prayed she asked if I wanted to pray again. I told her no and asked if she wanted to pray. She folded her hands and closed her eyes. I guessed that meant she wanted to pray. She just lay there so I finally told her to say "Thank you God." Her prayer went something like this.

"Thank you God. Thank you God. Thank you God. Thank you God. Xavie, Pandy, today, safe, Grandma, popcorn, sleep, Pandy, safe, Grandma, Xavie, today, friends, popcorn, etc . . .
When she stopped I told her to say "Amen". It was was the cutes thing. She just said a bunch of words that I have used in our prayers (except popcorn). It didn't make much sense to me but I'm sure it did to her and I KNOW God understood.

FFF - Favorite Foto Friday - I'M BACK!!!!

I have been more than terrible about keeping my blog. I have family that visit and I need to keep it updated better so they can see how much Johanna is growning. So . . I'M BACK!!!!!!!!!!

Today is Friday so it is time for a favorite foto.

Last week Johanna was spinning around in the living room when she lost her balance. She fell into the corner of the tv table hitting the corner outside her eye. By the time she got up from her nap she had a nice shiner.
Sunday I dressed her in an adorable Christmas outfit for church and took her outside to get a pictre. Below is what I got!
