The Prayers of the Righteous

Oh, how I wish I could video tape the girls saying prayers at night. Since I know that wouldn't work (as they either freeze up or totally perform when the camera is on them), I've got to record our most recent nightly prayer:

First, Caroline (imagine a huge, shy grin on her face with an accent that adds an extra two syllables to each word):
"Dear God. Thank you for Mama. Thank you for Daddy. Thank you for Aly-Boo. Thank you for Taro-yine. Amen"

Then Aly (eyes closed, speaking with all the drama of an evangelist preacher):
"Dear God and Jesus. Please take care of my animals. Please don't make us sick. Please let us have pink medicine and not red medicine. Please let me have super-powers. Thank you for the Bible so I can learn about Jesus. Amen."

There is nothing more sweet than the faith of a child!

I need to teach you Emma's new "Superman" prayer. Aly-boo would love that one, and it might help more with the super powers! So cute!
