A True Beanie Baby Missionary

I was busy tidying up Miley's room this morning and found this, instead of neatly folded shirts and extra blankets, in her armoire.



It's a Beanie Baby House complete with an altar on the upper level.  I loved that she has created this whole little world complete with wall paper all by herself; and at the same time I was curious why she chose to take the cross off our mantle and the light up angel out of the Christmas box.

I asked why she made the altar and she said in a very matter-of-fact voice, "Well, for church service of course. It's easier for them to have service at home."

I honestly spent a good hour trying to figure out why she would want a church in a house and then it hit me--if you have church in your house, you won't be late.

Note to self--Do not forget to set the alarm clock on Saturday night!

Better keep an eye on your other cabinets or you may end up with the church in it's own "building" along with the grocery store, the school and who knows what else. Awesome imagination she has!

She's pretty slick. Now she just needs to add a grocery store, school, post office, department store, and a few other locals and nobody will ever be late for anything!
