Mary had a little lamb...

As we were decorating for Christmas, Morgan and Lindey got out the Little People Nativity set we have.  They began setting it up when Lindey came running over to me with one of the figures.

When she got to me she said, "Mom!  I found Mary!"  Then in all her 3 year old seriousness continued with, "She had a little lamb."

John and I laughed and laughed over that one.

Not quite the right Mary, although I'm pretty sure there was a lamb in the stable.

I lived in Heaven...

John's sister, Paula, was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer a couple of months ago.  Yesterday they gathered the family together so they could turn off the life support.  I got a call from John telling me we were going to go to Salt Lake to the hospital.  In order to get things in order so we could go, I was texting on my phone and making calls.
Lindey came up to me and asked, "Who is texting you so much?"  I told her that Aunt Paula was very sick and that she probably would go to live with Heavenly Father today.
 Lindey pondered that for a moment then said, "She will like that."
I know she didn't really understand all that was going on, but her little thought made me pause for a moment.  What a little sweetheart!  How true is that statement??
A few minutes later I got another text, and Lindey asked, "Is that Aunt Paula telling you she's gone to live with Jesus?"  All I could answer was, "No, not yet, sweetheart."

Full of Hot Air

We went and watched the drama class at the high school perform "The Little Mermaid".  It was dark when we came outside and a little on the chilly side.  None of the kids had worn a jacket.

While walking back to the car Zander said to me, "Can we turn on the hot air conditioner?"

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. :)
