Out of the Mouth of Babes

Saturday night, as I was laying in bed I had that song, "Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson stuck in my head.  It is Abbey's favorite song right now and I started laughing thinking about how bad she is at singing lyrics.  Justin said, "You know she gets that from you."  It's true.  I butcher songs.

He got excited and said, "I can't believe I forgot to show you this!" then went on to tell me about reading scriptures with the girls earlier that day.  They were talking about the Fourth Article of Faith (the 13 Articles of Faith are statements on our basic beliefs in the LDS church) that talks about our belief in baptism by immersion and the laying on of hands for the gift of the Holy Ghost.  Justin showed me a picture:

He could not stop laughing and I had no clue where he was going with this.  But I always laugh anyway when he's laughing that hard!
Finally he explained that Abbey jumped up and said, "I can do that right now!  I can get the Holy Ghost right now!" 
She's laying on her pants.  For the gift of the Holy Ghost.

If only it were that easy, everyone would be making great choices all the time!
When my girls were abbey's age they were running around the house calling for "dr. Incovenance". He was going to help them in some imaginary emergency.

THAT IS HILARIOUS! Thanks for sharing.

I love your description of Justin laughing so hard, and then you joining in with him, not because you knew what he was laughing about, but because watching him laugh that hard makes you laugh. I feel that way too when Devin laughs as a prelude to a story. And the story/picture is very funny and cute!
