Celebrating Book of Mormon Day

Weekend mornings we have a strict rule at our house: No one is allowed out of their bedrooms until at least 7:00 a.m. You see, if we didn't have this rule, all of our children would be running around like hulligans at the crack of dawn, maybe even earlier. Now that our three oldest can be mostly trusted to be without close supervision for short periods of time, Brett and I usually sleep in (or at least we did before we had a baby back in the house) until 8:00 or 8:30. During that hour of "no parents" our kids usually play the Wii, watch cartoons, pick fights with each other, or make us "delicious" breakfasts (a-hem...).

Last Sunday, they spent that hour
doing something wonderful!
This is what we woke up to:
Drawing a series of pictures from the Book of Mormon.
The kids called it "Book of Mormon Day".
I loved it!

Naturally, Carson had to find a way to
weave his favorite Star Wars character in the mix.

You say you're not familiar with the
scripture story of "The Praying Yoda"?
Obviously you need to spend a little
more time reading the Good Book!

I love how Moroni's kneeling legs rise
so far up behind his back!
(Same with Enos below...)
