Learning our prayers and creating books. . .

Since we've been home, Aidan began, almost immediately, clapping his hands together and saying "Amen!" when we said our prayers. Whether at the dinner table, out to dinner, bed time, or at church, Aidan picked this up and has been very consistent about his participation in the "Amen!". Mama is soooo proud!

Lately, he has even begun saying "Thanks be to God" at the end of the readings when we are at church. The reader reads the lesson, says "The Word of the Lord" and we respond "Thanks be to God." And Aidan is right there with us.

This past week, Pat has begun having Aidan recite a simple meal time prayer, one we all grew up with and it goes like this:

Daddy:
God is Great.
Aida:
God is Great.
Daddy:
God is Good.
Aidan:
God is Good.
Daddy:
And we thank Him,
Aidan:
And we tankim,
Daddy:
For our food.
Aidan:
For da dude.
Daddy (trying not to laugh out loud):
Amen!
Aidan:
Amen!

Seriously, dontcha just love the way kids say things????

I went on blurb.com yesterday and discovered that Booksmart no longer supports Blogger! I can't just upload and then edit! Oh no! I have been counting on that in order to have a hard copy of this past year. . .I didn't do a baby book or a scrap book. All I have is my blog. . .I do have the pictures elsewhere, though. So, online I went and looked around. Blogger has something as well and I'll give it a try. However, I do think I can still use the Booksmart program, it will just take a lot longer because I will need to import the pictures separately and then copy and paste each post individually. That will be a lot of work. . .But, no mater how I end up doing it, it will be a nice momento of this time in our lives.

Oh that is so cute. He is learning to such sweet things. Aristotle stood up at Christmas (At his house) to make a toast and said

"Thanks Mommy and Daddy for having us for Christmas dinner!" while holding up his glass of water.

Tell me where else would he be??

That stinks about the publisher. I have been wanting to put mine into a hard copy too but I wanted to wait until I got my referral so I could title it volume one.

Please let me know what you find that works.
