We always pray before meals, but usually Addie pays no attention. But two days ago we made the effort to teach her to fold her hands and 'pray' with us. So one day later, she is praying all the time!! She folds her hands, looks at us, and waits for us to pray. Then she proceeds to clap when we say "Amen." Clapping for God, I suppose! I'm sure He enjoys that :) So this morning, as we sat down to breakfast, Brandt and I just started talking, not realizing we had forgotten to pray. We look at Addie and she has her hands folded, waiting for us. So we prayed together. Then she was satisfied and began eating. She kept us in check this morning :)

Yeah, ADDIE!

It's only the beginning of your child(ren) keeping you in check! :)

Nora claps after we say Amen as well. She uses the actual prayer time to talk over the pray-er and check out everyone.
