Beiber Hair

We stood on the porch and waved as John and the kids left for school this morning.  As they pulled away, I noticed some garbage that had fallen out of the trooper in the driveway.  I had Eli run and grab it so we could throw it away.  On his way back inside, he found a green feather on the lawn.  His comment to me was, "Mom!  I found some Justin Beiber hair!"  LOL  No clue where that one came from! ha ha

Don't Bite!

Lindey was playing with Dochia yesterday and gave her a small baby doll to play with.  Dochia, being 10 months old, immediately put the head of the little doll in her mouth.  Lindey said to her, "Dochia!  Don't bite her!  That's not nice!"  I got quite a chuckle out of that little interchange. :)


 We were reading scriptures tonight in Chapter 27 of the book of Mosiah.  Lindey read first.  We have been reading about Alma and how the unbelievers were persecuting the people of the church.  They began to complain to Alma and he was reporting this to King Mosiah, who in turn went to confer with his priests.
   Lindey read, "And Mosiah consulted with his preschool." 
   The context of that sentence is just so funny!  Got to love the world of a two and a half year old!

We're leaking over here!

   Lindey began potty training yesterday and she did really well!  She only had one accident all day long! Today, was not so great.  She had an accident this afternoon, and then went and put new pants on without telling me.  I noticed she was in different pants and asked her about it.
"Why did you change your pants?"
Lindey responded, "I was leaking!" Lol
We had to go change her underwear as well and put new pants on again. :) Hopefully she'll get the hang of this potty training thing quickly so we won't have any more leaking issues!

No Way!

We were at the Elementary School for John's Dad's birthday party.  Ian was teasing Lindey and wanted to her come over to him.  She was giggling and I looked at her and said, "Tell him, 'No way, Jose!'" She looked at Ian and said, "No way, Hose-y!"  It was funny!

Dochia's first words...

We have been babysitting my friend's daughter this school year.  She is a cute little thing and is only 6 months old.  When my friend, Pam, came to pick up Dochia last Thursday (Dec. 12th) Eli said to her, "Dochia said her first two words today!  The first one was 'cookie' and the second was 'Eli'.  He is so funny. :)  She obviously isn't talking at all yet, which made his comment even funnier.  He also said she told him she wanted her picture taken this day.  He sure does love her. :) Crazy boy!

Losing the Spirit

On December 13th, we were trying to get everyone settled down, arms folded, kneeling and ready for prayers.  The kids just were not cooperating.  John and I both were getting upset with them.  Finally, John had had enough of their craziness and said to the kids, "We might as well not have prayers at all now, the spirit isn't even here anymore!"  Of course, the kids knew they had pushed it too far and it was pin-drop silent in the living room.  Then a little voice quietly says, "I still believe in Santa Clause."  It was all we could do to keep from laughing.  John and I looked at each other and just lost it.  We laughed for a good 5 minutes.  We had been recently talking about having the spirit of Christmas and Eli related Santa Clause to being the "spirit". That little moment was all it took for the real spirit to find it's way back to our home so we could end the day in prayer.  Gotta love the innocence of a four year old.
