We have been saying daily prayers with Cooper since he was a baby. At about 2 he started saying his prayers by repeating us. Recently, he has started to say part of his prayers on his own. Well, yesterday before Pete went to work, he started saying his nightly prayer by himself. He started off by blessing his Family and Sister then he said "bless me to go to the Zoo... bless me to go to the Animal Park... bless me to go on an Adventure"... at that point we redirected the prayer. He told me "no mommy, my turn" and started all over. I thought it was so cute and had to keep myself from laughing. I think it is neat that he understands that you can pray to Heavenly Father for things you want. We need to work more on the "thanking" part, but looks like we are on the right track!
Pete and Wendy were married July 1996. We then waited 10 long years to have our first child, May 16th, 2007, a beautiful baby boy, Cooper. We were then blessed to have an equally beautiful baby girl, Delaney, on Thanksgiving Day 11-26-09. They are truly the reason we get up in the mornings. Wendy is a stay at home mom and Pete works as a Building Engineer for a local hospital. We moved to heaven on earth, the Pacific North West, in 1999. We can't imagine living any where else. We are lucky to live close to Wendy's family and miss those who live so far away. We are hoping to extend our family soon and can't wait to see what lies in-store for us!
