Dancing balloons & Santa Claus

Today December 21, 2007 We were driving along a road and came to one of those "houses for sale" signs -- the kind advertizing new subdivisions of some kind. Well attached to the sign were some balloons that had strings on them. Well when we drove past the sign Thomas said, " those balloons were dancing! " The wind was really strong and blowing them around pretty wildly. Just this last week : He also had noticed that an blow up Santa Claus Balloon on top of a car dealership just down the street from us was not being aired up at the time and said, " Uh oh -- Santa fell down, mommy!"

This happened just this morning: Katherine: " Thomas, are you going to be scared when we go swimming in Idaho, at the hotel? " Thomas: " No, I'm gonna be a guy."

On Monday December 17th, I went to the school to pick up Kaylee because she was feeling sick. So I went to tell Katherine not to wait for Kaylee after school. She said, "Okay" then Katherine's friend, Bryanna came to me and said, " My family is going to Texas this week. Can Katherine come with us?" I tried not to laugh out loud. But it was sweet of her to think of Katherine.
Here's a picture of Katherine with her friend Bryanna.

The other night for FHE, Thomas had the refreshments. So I had him help me make some Peanut clusters for the treat. The ingredients are peanuts and chocolate chips. I let him help me pour the chocolate chips into the bag and then I melted them down in a pot over the stove. Once they were melted I brought the pot back over to him and asked him how it looked?? I then had him pour the peanuts into the pot so that I could stir them into the melted chocolate chips. I asked him if he knew what we were making and he said, " Chocolate chip cookies !!" "Yummy!!!" I just had to laugh because they were actually peanut clusters. But hey, I guess they could have been called chocolate chip cookies.

This looks like .....

Last night for dinner I had a pan with brown gravy mixed up and Thomas and Katherine almost at the same time said, " This looks like chocolate !" Too bad it really wasn't.

Pick up these .....

This morning, while I was trying to get Thomas dressed, I asked him to come over to me from the front of the couch. He had left out some toys from the night before and he tripped over them, and said, " Guys, pick up these toys!" I just had to laugh because -- he was the one who played with them last night and didn't put them away.
