You be a squirrel...

Morgan and Lindey were trying to decide what to be for Halloween this year.  Morgan was telling her all the things they could be that would match.

"I could be a witch and you could be my cat. Or, I can be a flower and you can be a bee. Or, I can be a squirrel and you can be an acorn."

Lindey thought for a few minutes and then very excitedly said, "You can be a squirrel, and I can be your coconut!!"

Our little (or not so little) coconut.

(See the other post about choosing the Halloween costumes--"you be a squirrel..."--and this conversation will make way more sense!) :)

"I love you my little coconut." Morgan said to Lindey.

Eli said, "She is not a coconut!  She is bigger than that...she is like a thousand coconuts!"

White pants

While driving home tonight, Eli says, "All I need is a pair of white pants to go to the temple."
"White pants?" I asked.
"Yeah, and white shoes."
"All you need is white pants and white shoes to go to the temple, huh?"
"Yeah, because I already have a white shirt 'cause my pajama shirt is white!"

Tom Sawyer

On Sunday, John's parents were here visiting (our family spoke in church).  His Mom enjoys doing family history work.  She was telling us some things she's been doing, and mentioned that we have a Tom Sawyer in our line.  Zander piped up with, "That must be where all the trouble-making comes from."

Our kids never cease to make us smile. :)


I had to laugh when I found this by the computer.  Someone is excited to go hunting! :)

We're a family!

As I was working out this morning, Lindey came in.  She began playing with what she could find, as any 3 year old would, and started lining up my weights from the smallest to the biggest. (I have 2 lbs. up to 8 lbs.--5 sets total) After she had them all lined up, she looked at me and said, "Look Mom!  They make a family!"  I love my girl!

Decorations at the table

Most of us were done eating dinner last night.  We make the kids finish everything that is on their plates. Eli was apparently done eating because his comment to John was, "Dad, see this spaghetti on my plate?  It's just for decoration."  Ha ha!  That was a first!  With 4 kids preceding him, we had not heard that excuse before.  We decided that was creative enough that he didn't have to finish it. This kid keeps us on our toes! :)
