It's Friday night and Avery's on her way to sleep, and Steph suggested that I blog about a couple cute things Avery said tonight (and that she's said a few times lately).

So one thing is that we've sporadically been praying before bedtime, whenever Avery or one of us remembers it. Most times Avery makes me or Mommy do the talking, but the past few nights she's done the talking, and it's been sooooooooo sweet. Here's her quoted prayer from tonight...
"Dear God, thank you for all the help. Thank you for Mommy, and Daddy, and Avery, and me, and all the people in the town. Amen." She then repeated the exact same prayer two more times, and then we were done. She's such a cute little thankful girl (even if we're not sure what she's talking about sometimes).

Then a while later, since she rarely falls right to sleep these days, she was shouting to us through the wall as she does a few times a night on her way to sleep. After shouting to ask for a differnet blankie, and then also asking Mommy to come help her get under the covers, it was quiet for a few minutes. But then a commercial for the office came on in the living room with its loud theme music, and Avery says, "Mommy? You watching the Office? That's Daddy's favorite show." She cracks us up sometimes.

    HAHAH! The Office is enjoyed by quite a few folks! How funny that she recognized it - and through the wall no less!
