Saying "grace" is something Leah and Brayden look forward to before meals.  Leah almost always says it before we can ask her.  "Thank you Jesus for this food, AMEN!!!" is such a sweet sound coming from her little 4 year old voice.  Just recently we have been able to hear our tiny little guy speak the name of our Savior for the first time.  It was more than sweet.  "Thank you Jaysus, food, AMEN!" is what comes out.  It is not only the cutest thing you've ever heard, but the sound of "Jesus" coming out of his mouth is more special, sweet, and amazing than I could have ever imagined.

Extreme Makeover... Leah Edition.

Leah had such a special birthday.  She loves her earrings so much, and is such a big girl about them.  We had cake and ice cream with Great Grandma and Great Aunt Candy.  Leah loved her Barbie Princess cake I spent all morning decorating... it was much harder than I thought it was going to be.  She got a flower delivery from Granmo and Papa, and was so excited she had flowers of her own.  She's been asking me every day to smell her flowers... it's so cute.  She got puzzles from Grayma and Grapa Jack, roller-skates from Aunt Cassie and Uncle Bryan, and jewelry and makeup from Grandma and Grandpa.  She had a wonderful day, and loves giving Daddy, Mommy, Brayden, and herself makeovers with her makeup.
