Converstaions with my sweet Calista

Last Night at about 9:45pm:
"Mom. when houses burn up, do Monsters live in them?"
"No Calista, Monster are not real and don't live anywhere."
"Yes, they do... We have a Monster in our house."
""We do?"
"Yes, his name is Nelson"

A couple of weeks ago after Great Aunt Rena's funeral:
"Mom, where is Rena going?"
"To Heaven to live with Heavenly Father."
"Where are they going to put that box?"
"Well they will go to the cemetery and bury it in the ground. That is our custom to bury the body but her spirit, the part that makes her who she is goes to live with heavenly father."
Long Pause
"So Heavenly Father lives in the ground?"

I thought that was a very logical conclution. She is such a thinker! Needless to say we had a long talk on the way to the cemetary.

I love the way little kids think!
