and God bless...

So tonight, after I read 18 books to Gavin (not kidding) - and that's not counting the two times each I read "Brown Bear Brown Bear" and "Lalma Lalma Red Pajama" - I finally got him to settle down in his bed. We did our nightly ritual of saying prayers and then blessing everyone we know (god bless nana and papa, grandma and papa, Lauren and Ellie and Owen... and so on.) He then always names a few friends from school. Tonight he must have had extra blessings he said "god bless Jenny, and Jill and Brenda and Carlie" (his teachers) then the usuals of Codie and Jordan. Tonight we also added Kristin, Brady and Molly. Then he took his hands and put them on my face and with the most serious expression said "and Mommy, God Bless Mickey Mouse!" Yes Gavin - thank God for Mickey Mouse...

Maggie, Molly and Gavin are wondering if Auntie Mer can come over and read THEM 18++ books as their mommy only reads them TWO each night before bed! Gavi n sure is one lucky dude! Blessing Mr Mickey Mouse is very important to a 2 year old, I'm sure---LOL!!!!!
