Earlier today she was reading a book she decided was her Bible. She was preaching loud and long to an empty room but I did hear her say, "Jesus and Handy Manny will fix it!"

The boys went to Karate and left Greer screaming because she wasn't going, so a bath while watching "Tinkerella" (aka Cinderella) cheered her right up:)

We were having a discussion about orphans tonight, and how sad it is for them that they don't have parents and how we should pray for them to get parents.  And in the completely male, non-emotional, non-empathetic way, Max IV says to me, "Yep, there are lots of orphans."  As I often unsuccessfully do with my husband, I decided to try to "help" him find that emotional place deep, deep down in him.  So, I say to him, "Wouldn't you be sad if you didn't have any parents?"  And his response was (and I'm not kidding here people-this is what he really said), "Yeah, no money.  I'd have no money."  Unsuccessful again.  He is a male...lacking emotions...even for his mom.  Ha!

A little make-up goes a long way.

"Don't see me Minnie!" Greer's lifelong dream to see Minnie came true, and that was all she could say:(
