Tonight, I (Dad) got home from work as the kids were getting their costumes on for Halloween.  Micah said to me, being totally serious, "Dad, I am going to MAKE you dress up for Halloween!  You can be a nerd.  You can wear what you have on right now and I'll give you some fake glasses!"  Goes to show that I don't need much more than my present wardrobe to be a nerd for Halloween!  Thank you, Micah, For so tactfully pointing that out to me! :)

"Jacob, I love you so much..."

Just moments ago I was helping the kids clean up the living room while Micah was practicing his piano and Peyton was dancing so cute with her other brothers and out of the blue she says, "Jacob, I love you so much, I'll always be good to you. I'll never do bad things to you, I'll only do bad things to Micah and Ben." Oh, it was so cute up until that last little part! She really does love all her brothers but for some reason she absolutely adores Jacob.

Heavenly Father took her bad hair voice!

Peyton asked me if I saw her hair (usually sounds like hay when she says it) sticking to her cheek, she immediately caught herself saying hair the correct way and said, "Hey! I say hair good now! I think someone took my bad hair voice!" She was pointing up to Heavenly Father while she was saying this last part.

The way they think...

While in Monterey Ben said, "It would be cool if our house lived over here."

Ben or the phone call, hmmm.

While I was on the phone Ben Ben came in and wanted my attention. I held up 1 finger to tell him to wait just a minute. He came back in moments later and said, "I'm more important than that phone call."

not a kid

Watching the show, "Here's Lucy" Peyton said, "This isn't a kids show Ben, you're a kid, I'm not."

like I married my daughter

Peyton gave me a long kiss with her arms wrapped tightly around my neck. After the kiss she giggled and said, "It's like we're married!"

I'll trade you.

I was getting Peyton ready and commented on what a cute bum she has. I said something about wishing I had a tiny bum like hers, she giggled and said that she wanted a big bum like mine. She laughed and said, "That's funny huh mom, we want each others bums!"


A few days ago (Friday night) I was late getting dinner ready and the kids were hungry. Micah said it was okay and suggested that we just start with "advertisers". You know, appetizers.

Fluinziana shot anyone?

We were all in my and Tyler's bed for scripture reading before school when Micah said, "What if you got a flu shot and you still got Fluinziana?" Of course what he meant was influenza. We all got a good laugh with that one.
