Since we're doing happy times, here's one from today. This was one of those days like you have during finals' week when you don't know how you are going to get everything done, but you know you will. After a very busy day, tonight was our church's children's play. Erin was in it and had been practicing for some time for her role as a wise man and a prophet. She did beautifully, and it was wonderful to see her standing up there doing everything the other children did, plus seeing her the same height and size as others her age was icing on the cake.
Anyway, after the play, they had refreshments and Santa for the children. Erin was so excited to be playing with her friends that she didn't even notice the cookies, etc. When it was time to go home, she still wanted to run around with her pals. This is finals' week for Kristen and so she told Erin that if she didn't come on, we'd leave her at church and she'd have to find her way home by following a star! Erin, without missing a beat, said to Kristen, "Don't mess with me, Kristen. I'm a prophet and if you leave me here, I'll tell God on you!" And then she was gone again…
You gotta love 'em!!!
