Juliet's First Prayer

We've helped Juliet say her prayers before but tonight she said it all by herself.  It was so pure and sweet that she made my eyes tear up. Here's a summary of what was said:

Heavenly Father, thankful for the day. Bless Grandma to be healthy (my mom's been having some health concerns). Bless Mommy, Daddy, Juliet, Grandmas, Grandpa's, Cousins, Uncles, Cooper, Nora, Chase, Abby. Thankful for colors. Thankful for crayons. Bless us good night. Jesus AMEN!

She likes to say amen! hahaha. We asked her if she wanted to say the prayer tonight and her answer was, "I will talk!" Then I asked her if she wanted mommy to help her or daddy to help her and she chose daddy.  But then she just started talking! We were so impressed that she wasn't shy or super quiet and even though she forgot a few things like cece and her aunts, she did such a good job! We love her so much and tonight was something I don't want to forget.

Kid Snippets

This is my new obsession lately. Well, maybe obsession is too strong of a word but me and Juliet watch these every day. This one is her favorite and a big thanks to Aunt Amber for putting it on Brandon's wall! They're all funny, I think Juliet likes this one because it has a ball :)

The Phone Call

Do any of my siblings remember that old short movie?  Tim found it on The Mormon Channel on the ROKU and started watching it, probably not realizing how awesome it was going to be.

This morning Juliet was playing with an old phone and I told her to call Daddy at work. She happily said, "Hi DADDY!" and then simply told me, "Daddy's not there."  I guess she really wasn't up to using her imagination this morning.

We made it to Virginia! We're staying with Tim's parents while we house/apartment hunt. It's great that Tim got a job so quickly because now we can save up some money. The weather has been pretty miserable, super hot and humid, but this week it's changed! It's finally starting to feel like fall and it's been cool and beautiful. Fall is the reason I moved to Virginia. Soooo gorgeous! Pictures to come!
