I just have to tell two happy little stories. Bragging rights, if you will.
Yesterday was a little insane. Drive to St. George, use my brain (that hurts), back home, prepare food for activity, drive to St. George, pick up husband, drive home, run activity errands for the next hour. It was sort of like ... well, let's just say Martin Luther King would be proud that I was the very best errand runner I could be.
However, that has absolutely nothing to do with the point. Back to my two happy little stories.
While I was typing things up for said activity I heard Olivia scream "KAJE!" (K.J.'s little abbreviation). I turned my head and could see her leaning up against him in front of my bed while the television raised them. He looked down at her and she screamed at the very top of her lungs "I LOVE YOU!" and smiled. I smiled. K.J. beams and says "Mommy, Olivia loves me!" And then she gave him a great big wet kiss right on the eye. It was so precious. It basically made my life. And his. They really love each other.
Then that night Daddy was giving the F.H.E. lesson (yep, that's right) about tithing. He'd put ten pennies on a cookie sheet and asked "K.J., do you know what tithing is?" K.J. says "Uh huh, Grandma Allred's snowman." Ben and I looked at each other and asked the obvious question ... "What?"
"You know, Good tithings we bring to you and your kin! Good tithings for Christmas, and a happy New Year!"
I just couldn't help but laugh. I love their little minds.
Happy inaugaration to you all. Let's hope!
