Prayers from the Mouth of a 4 yr old

Last night at bedtime, after reading Caroline's bible story, singing every song on on our nightly list (and then some), Caroline began to say her prayers. They went something like this...

Thank you God for Mommy, Daddy and Andrew. And thank you for Nana, Papa & Gigi too. Thank you for my friends and please bless every one of them. Thank you also for the aliens in outer space.

Yes, you did read that correct...thank you for the "aliens in outer space." Ben and I couldn't help but chuckle! When I opened my eyes, Caroline was peaking at me through one eye which was partially opened. Yep, that one was added for total SHOCK value!!

HK likes to manipulate me with her prayers . . . recently she prayed . . . "And God, please let us go to Pop and Mimi's because that's what I want to do. Okay, God?" After she amened everything, she looked at me and said, "We're going to Pop and Mimi's house now because that's what I prayed for."

And I'm totally laughing at Caroline's alien friends!
