Things I Never Thought I Would Have To Say...

Today's line?

"Sam, take that bacon off your face!"

Why?  Maybe if he were a dog...

My Favorite Word

Elise (age 1/12) looking unhappy.

Brothers trying to entertain little sister.

Joshua:  "Can you say "Josh"?" 

Elise:  "No!"

Joseph:  "Can you say "Joe"?"

Elise:  "No!" 

Joshua:  "Can you say "No"?"

Elise:  "No!"

Brothers nearly fall over in hysterics.  Baby win.

From Sheer Terror to Apathy in 5, 4, 3, 2...

Last time we were visiting family out of town Josh comes running in from playing outside, absolutely freaked out. 

"Mom!  A tornado's coming!!!"

I briefly glance out the window.  "No, it's just windy - it's just Twin Falls." (In Twin Falls, when it snows you measure the amount stuck to the SIDE of the fencepost...)

Josh, looking puzzled, "So I don't need to worry about my life?"

"No, you're good."

"Oh, okay."  As he runs back out, "Twin Falls is windy!"  Story of my life.

The Chocolate Fountain of Joy

You know it's a fun thing when the new year starts out with everyone covered in chocolate and dancing.  Baby girl loved it.  Loved it.
