FHE: Alphabet Blessing

Okay, we actually got to have FHE tonight, despite the tears and tantrums (and that was just me). Just kidding. It was actually kinda nice.

Opening Song: Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam (da Boo's choice but the Boy is learning this is nursery and it's pretty cute to watch).

Opening Prayer: the Boy (with Mommy's help).

Lesson: I got this from my awesome fhe4children group. To start, I read a story from the Friend about seeing that you are very blessed. During this, both da Boo and the Boy had a meltdown of some sort, although thankfully not at the same time. Then I had a paper with the alphabet on it. We went down the whole thing, taking turns saying a blessing we were thankful for that began with that letter. Daddy got to go first. (Hint: if you try this, have an adult go first because they end up with almost all the vowels and hard letters!)
A - apples
B - baths
C - the Boy (his real name begins with this)
D - diapers (the Boy's choice, with da Boo's help)
E - elevators
F - family
G - Grandparents
H - hair
I - ice cream
J - da Boo (real name)
K - (had to skip due to tantrum)
L - lunch
M - Mommy (awwww...)
N - night time
O - olives
P - Pop-pop (the Boy's favorite person, my dad)
Q - quiet (as the Boy screamed)
R - restaurants (because I don't have to cook!)
S - suckers
T - trains and trucks (the Boy couldn't decide which he liked better)
U - unicorns (da Boo's suggestion)
V - Valentine
W - water
X - xylophone
Y - You!
Z - zippers

Closing Song: Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree

Closing Prayer: Daddy.

Treats: Daddy made everyone hot chocolate in Mommy's CocoMotion. We sipped this while playing the Wii. (Can I just say that I am a waaaaaay better cook in Cooking Mama than in real life?)
So what are some of your alphabet blessings?

Fun lesson! I want more details on the CocoMotion. Also do you love the wii?

CocoMotion is awesome! Hard to find, try Wal-Mart.
And the Wii is great! I never got to play video games as a kid so this is fun to finally have one.
