Out of the mouths of babes

I was babysitting my nephew, Tanner, last week and took him to an activity. While we were there I sat next to a friend, Angela. This is the conversation that took place:

Me: Tanner, tell her who is in here (pointing to my stomach)
Tanner: Oh, that is my cousin
Angela: How did the baby get in there (expecting a cutesie answer)
Tanner: Well, (holding up his hand to show a tiny circle) there is this little thing that moves, and has a tail and it goes to another thing, then the baby grows.
Angela: (a bit surprised), Did the baby come from Heaven? (again, hoping for a cutesie answer)
Tanner: (looking perplexed), No, it came from Matt!

HAHAHAHA! I just laughed and laughed. My little nephew is extremely educated! Go Tanner!

The Errand of Angels

You may or may not know that Matt has his own podcast, "Mormoncast." Lately it has been on hiatus, until this last week. Matt received a screener copy of a new movie called "The Errand of Angels." He did a movie review on his podcast. Go ahead and check it out. The movie was really good! I have included the movie review, but if you are interested in the podcast go to

(Check out my other post for today, it is really important!)
