Sunday Funnies

Mostly from Anderson because he's just at that age that funny stuff comes out so often...

Anderson (after pj day at school):  If I liked girl things, I'd have Hello Kitty pajamas.

Anderson was trying to say he was going to hide something, but instead said he was going to 'disappear it.'

Arriving at school one day, a girl from his class was walking in ahead of us.  Anderson said, 'That is Avery, she isn't married.'

Not so funny, but super sweet.  I asked Owen the best part of his day and he answered, 'Walking with God.'

I asked Anderson what he learned in chapel.
Anderson:  Lava, it means, Daddy
Me:  Are you sure it isn't Abba?
Anderson:  No, it is lava.

Aaron used the old parenting line we all swore we'd never use.  If all of your friends jumped off a bridge, would you?  Owen quickly said, 'No.'  Anderson said, 'I would, but I would be naked naked.'

Owen has Home on the Range as one of his piano songs this week.  He said, 'Mommy, you can sing this song to sheep.  They like it and it calms them down.  It's a flock song.'
There is a picture of a sheep on the page and some verbiage about it being a folk song.

Owen:  Mommy, I scared the peaches out of Anderson. (the intended word was bejeebies).

Owen had a pen from an energy drink brand and told Anderson that Daddy got it when he needed to 'energy up.'

Anderson:  Mommy, when I'm a daddy, my knees are going to hurt.  So is my back and I'm going to be a referee.

Snow Day Activities

The kids and I made a batch of soft pretzels on one of our snow days...I have lots of warm memories making yummy treats on snowy days growing up.  These were really good!

And I thought I'd share a recent piece of school work that came home...
I admit...I laughed at the bottom right and needed him to translate for me.  It's bow tie :)

The kids did a great job entertaining themselves over our snow days...which was helpful because I still needed to work.  Lots of imaginative play that I love to watch them play.  They got along so well and I think really enjoyed the time to relax and play together.  But, they are both ready to head back to school to see their teachers and friends.

They also stayed busy doing some work. We are sort of re-vamping the chores around's time for Anderson to officially chip in too.  Owen has taken over folding all of his laundry and Anderson has taken napkin duty (although here he was helping Owen with a shirt).

We may not have had much milk while we were snowed in, but there was no threat of Aaron running out of Mountain Dew.  He loaded up on a recent trip to Atlanta. If any one local knows where we can get the throwback locally, please share!
