I am a child of God... or we can have FUN! Now that is a different spin on the song.  I promise we did not teach that at FHE!

Redo to the start of summer!

Well we started off with swimming lessons. All went well until Zach went to get in the water. And then the screaming started. With his eyes closed the whole time.

After swimming lessons we came home had lunch. Then while I was working on getting the next activity together (chore charts). Julia came in. I think that we are in need of a redo!

Aubrey does look a little excited in the picture. I think it is because she did not do the cutting THIS time!

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches...

Yesterday was a cold and windy day.  After I picked Julia and Zachary up from school I said, "Let's go home and have GRILLED cheese sandwiches."  Julia started cheering and Zachary kind of started to cry.  So I asked him what was the matter.  

"I don't want a GIRL cheese sandwich. I want a BOY cheese sandwich!"

After I explained that the sandwiches did not have a gender all was well!

You better get in bed...

...or Santa will not come and leave you a present! 

Claire: That's okay.  We have lots of presents down there.

Me: Okay then I will start taking those presents away!

- did not see her the rest of the night!

Fast Sunday...

Benjamin:  Will you make pancakes for breakfast?
Me: No, it is Fast Sunday.
Benjamin: Oh, I know what you are talking about.  It is when we only go to church for a little while.
Me: No, it is when we do not eat and then give the money we would have use to eat to those in need.
Benjamin: That is not FAST.

Sometimes having a literal thinking child is too funny!

After signing Aubrey's homework she exclaimed, "What is that?" Cursive I stated. Aubrey - Oh, they only let us write in English at school.

She is just acting...

Just so you know...  Ariel is just acting.  She cannot really change into a human.  She is a mermaid.  That is what actors do. - Aubrey

Why do you not sleep with your shoes on?

After getting Benjamin's new shoes last night. He asked me why people did not wear shoes to bed.  I told him that shoes were usually dirty and you do not want to get your bed dirty.  So he made me carry him in from the van to the house so he would not get the new shoes dirty. And he did sleep with them on all night!  He must like them.

I remember this...

I little while ago I cleaned out the girls closet.  Aubrey was going through the pile I was getting rid of.  She keep holding things up and saying... " I remember this... when I was 4, when we were at Grandma's, and such." Well one of the shirts she held up and said, " I remember this shirt, it was when you didn't yell at us!" After I got over the shock of what she just said. I told her, "Oh, I remember that too.  It was when you use to listen to me.  Maybe we should both try harder."

Thanks, Aubrey, for calling me out on that!

Julia - with her hand stretched out with trash in it -  "Here.."
Aubrey - "I am not a mom!"  - and refused to take the trash.

I am afraid of what Aubrey's opinion of what a MOM is.  Nose wiping, trash taking, laundry doing, food cooking... but she is leaving out the hug catcher,  kiss getting and the kid snuggler.  I will admit that sometime I forget and leave those out also.

updating our blog: Lets just jump right in!

This summer I went Sky Diving in KY.  With all the on lookers below I flew above and screamed like a little girl!

Dad is scared...

Apparently Dan is scared of pumpkins! Thanks for letting us know Benjamin!

My new Mom...

Claire just told me she likes her teacher SO much that she wants her to be her Mom.  What am I chopped liver?

This is what Benjamin declared after finding this in a magazine of some sorts.
I guess I am going to have to come up with some other reason for no pets.  The whole pee on the floor has been solved! They are getting a little to smart for me. ( I know it don't take much)

Zachary is sick...

So Zachary has been sick today. Aubrey has declared that she is allergic to throwup.  I said, "I think I am too!" I will spare you with the pictures.

Don't leave it where he can get it...

I don't know how many times I say this a day.  And this is the result of them not listening to me.
Thanks, guys!  
He is pretty cute though.
