John Paul:  Me and Cecilia are the second people God created!

So there you are, a slightly altered version of the creation story...

Glad I've educated them on when we pick different types of produce - it just stinks when those pickle plants aren't producing!


Cecilia, right before bedtime:  Wemember not to weave me awone in da dark in da middle of da floor!

Yes, standard bedtime procedure is for me to throw her in the middle of the room, hit the lights and slam the door...


John Paul, watching me crack my knuckles:  Mom, why are you breaking your bones?

And there you have it, the kids who never fail to disappoint!


  1. Your kids are awesome. I love that they shop for sangria!

  2. They are hilarious. I love it. The sangria shopping is my favorite (of this edition). Not to rush things, but I am really excited for Anna to reach the funny-quote stage!

  3. I'm laughing so hard that I'm crying. And burping, too. This is a first.

    I love Elizabeth's quotations. Getting hug-mauled really makes her verbal, doesn't it?

  4. I am laughing out loud. For real. They are so funny!

  5. These never ever fail to make me laugh. I'll chop your head off! Sangria! Breaking bones! Your kids are so awesome.

  6. So good. Do they really call your sister Aunt Sister? That's the cutest!! My kids have an Aunt who is a Sister also :)
