I stole your spot

October 22, 2007 --- While in my bedroom, Thomas came in (while he was supposed to be in bed), and sat on the floor for a few minutes until Chris got up from his spot on the bed - to go to the other room. Upon his return Thomas looked at him and said, " I stole your spot" in the most cute and mischievious voice I've ever heard and then said, " You sit on the floor now" Remember this kid is only 2!!!

You're making mud,

Last night for dinner we had burritos, consisting of tortillas and refried beans, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and olives. The beans that we were using were really thick and on the dry side, Chris asked howcome they are so dry, and if I had added any water to help smooth them out. I said I hadn't added any and then I proceeded to get a measuring cup with a little bit of water to pour into the beans. Heidi watching close by saw what I was and doing and saw how much water I had poured in, and said, " Now your going to make some mud!" Luckily it wasn't mud that we were eating!!

October 2007 ---- While my children and I were eating dinner, Chris was gone at the temple. We were having hot dogs and tots -- due to their request!! They kept asking for Fry Sauce, (which is something that their Dad makes usually) seeing as how he wasn't home, I tried to make some myself. The kids kept telling me how it didn't look like daddy's and then I tasted it and it tasted fine. Katherine tried it and said well, it's not just like Dad's but it's okay. I said yeah I know it isn't as good as Dad's but it'll work. Katherine came back with a "Dad must have some special ingredient he uses to make it, like spit or something."

Potato Salad and Easter Eggs

October 14, 2007 Yesturday after church, I was making potato salad and my two year old little boy asked me for an Easter Egg. Of course, I was peeling plain white, hardboiled eggs. A few minutes later after I had finished peeling and rinsing off the eggs, he asked me "Why are you putting easter eggs in that bowl, mommy?" So I guess he has associated boiled eggs as being Easter eggs whether they are colored or not. I thought it was cute.

Trick or Treat !!

October 14, 2007 My kids were watching ET the movie, and there was a part on there where they said "trick or treat" and Thomas heard it and said, " TRICK OR TREAT? ---- YEAH !!!" I asked him if he knew what trick or treating was and he said, " CANDY!!" He got all excited and started jumping up and down and happy as a clown!!

October 13, 2007 My husbands brother Dan, was getting ready to head out for a dance at a local church building somewhere, and was dressed up in a white shirt with a tie and dress pants. Chris wanted Thomas to come up and tell us where Dan was going. Mom: " Where is Dan going?" Thomas: " To Work!" Mom: " He's not going to work, where else do you think he's going?" Thomas: " To the TEMPLE!!" That was the response we told Dan -- that Thomas would say if he saw how dressed up he was. He's not even endowed or has ever been to the temple, so that's what makes it all the more funny.

Jelly in my .......

October 13th, 2007 We came home late from my in laws home about a 20 minute drive from here. And Thomas decided to tell us that he was poopy about 5 minutes into the drive. So I told him that we would change him as soon as we got home. Once we were home I laid him down and proceeded to take of his pajamas and then his diaper. Before I had the diaper off, he said, " I have jelly in my diaper" -- I couldn't do anything but laugh, -- because he had just barely started falling asleep in the car when we took him out. Kids -- often seem to say the funniest things.

Tales of a Hat .....

October 9, 2007 I came across an old infant "santa" hat and decided to be silly and put it on Ethan's head, it fit -- but very snug!! Thomas noticed that Ethan was wearing this hat and said, " Mom, Ethan's wearing a birthday hat!" When Thomas first saw Ethan he was laying on the floor with the hat on his head and the pointed end was sticking straight up, but then when Ethan rolled over he said " A Christmas Hat!"

My kids are a bunch of Posers

These are candid shots that I found on my camera because most of them are taken by my kids doing what they do best!! Being cute and funny!! Hope you like them as much as I did -- but then again I'm a little biased.

Here and Here ......

October 8, 2007 Tonight while we were having some hot dogs and tater tots for dinner -- Kaylee asked if we had "fry sauce" ( Because her dad usually makes some when we have tots and fries) Thomas came immediately back with a " Yes, here and here " Pointing to the Ketchup and then the Veganaise containers -- both of which are used to make the fry sauce.


Okay so this evening when we were getting ready for bed, Thomas was hugging and kissing daddy goodnight when daddy asked, " ARE WE BUDDIES?" to Thomas. Thomas while laughing came back with a," Yeah, AIR BUDDIES!!" Air Buddies is one of his favorite movies about dogs.

Pizza, Pizza

I was over at my sister in law's house this afternoon, and I hadn't eaten lunch or given my son anything to eat yet either. So I asked him if he wanted pizza? And of course he said Yes -- so I told him we'd pick up one, and take it to his cousins house and eat it over there. He said," Yes, lets get a pizza go home and eat it all!!! " I think he was very eager to eat the whole thing since his sisters were all gone at school still. But when I got to my sister in laws her red-headed five year old wanted some pizza as well. So we let her have a piece. But when she was looking in the box, she saw a piece with a bubble in it, and said, " I want the one with the bubble!!" It being a fairly large piece, I decided to tell her that I wanted the one with the bubble, because it's my pizza. She came back after about 10 -12 seconds and said, "Yeah, but it's my house!" She had me good on that one. I don't even remember who ended up with the piece that had the bubble.
