Interesting Story...

So last night after having family prayer with the kids and while Russ was gone with the mutual snowboarding, Emma went running to put something away before getting into bed. She came back and said to me, "When I was running, I saw a person in the kitchen who disappeared." I had her take me into the kitchen (yes, I was a tad nervous) and asked her questions. Asked her if it was like a kid or tall like me. She said tall like me. I asked if it was a boy or a girl. She said, "Well, it didn't have any hair but had something sticking up. And it had a head like Daddy's." She seemed a little nervous about it, too, so I took her and helped her say a little prayer so she wouldn't be scared. I will admit that I got a little nervous when the phone rang shortly after she ended her prayer. My first thought with the phone ringing that it was someone calling to tell me that Russ died snowboarding (who says I'm a fatalist?). Of course, Russ has long hair, so what Emma saw wouldn't have been him anyway. Unless what she actually saw was someone wearing a hat so it looked like they had no hair and that was the thing sticking up. (Yes, those are about the things I thought as I walked to the phone...it was a telemarketer.)
I then got the kids to bed and got to sit and picture this figure in my kitchen disappearing. I freely admit it, I didn't go into the kitchen again until after Russ got home about 2 hours later. Just didn't want to at all. When I told him about it, he said the same thing I said to Emma. We really need to have him bless our home. He added, "But it won't make the good ones leave." He wanted to know if the figure tried to talk to Emma. I said she didn't say anything about that. Just said it disappeared. I also sat and thought that I have been seeing quite a lot of crows lately. If that actually means anything.
Oh, by the way, Russ and I are expecting our 5th child. I'm now 13 weeks along.

What is with the "By the way"? That deserves a whole new post don't you think? Especially since you will be naming HIM after his uncle Mike. (The whole him thing is just my prediction.) Sounds like you may want to start another survey....

Congratulations!

That is so exciting! The baby thing, not the ghost thing. First, I think you are right about Russ dedicating the house. It helped our menace calm down. Second, I think Mike is right about deserving tHERe own post. Congratulations to your family!
