Once we got everyone fed, bathed and practiced counting to 100 and by 2's and by 5's we had family home evening tonight and it was fun. We sang "Once There Was a Snowman" and after a drawn out "einie meanie miney moe" Trey decided he should say the opening prayer. Then we had a little lesson on prayer. Trey has recently been cutting prayers short. Like his blessing on the food will consist of "Dear Heavenly Father thank you for a good day and we are glad we had a great day amen." He just says he had a great day 2 or 3 times and thats it. lol So we talked about how we open a prayer and what all a prayer should consist of and that we should thank for blessings before we ask for blessings ( thats just good manners right? lol) We should ask for blessings for others and in prayers that aren't blessings on food we should ask for forgiveness for things we have done wrong that day and help us do better. Ya know the basics. Then we did a fun little project where we made a little foam snowman out of precut parts. (hence us singing "Once there was a snowman" for our opening song. I try to connect the dots when I can). Then we had our snack. Jd had bought Trey his favorite candy bar, 3 Musketeer, and Sophie some M and M's. So we sat and had our snack in front of a nice fire on a cold wet day. Talk about Blessings. I am so thankful for Trey and Sophie. They keep me on the right path and make me a better person.
