Say What?

Our little stash of kid funnies grew quickly this time.  Hopefully these will bring a smile to your face as they did to ours!  I laughed so hard typing all these out.  As always, I had forgotten several of them which reminds me just how special it is to have all of them written down!


T: "How many did you know"  She was singing the Christmas song "Mary, did you know?"

T: "Mom, can you sing me a little bye" (Lullaby)

While Brandon and T were looking for a particular shoe:  T: "I called the 'slobber finder' but she said she didn't have a clue."

Brandon to T: "Where did your hair go?"
T: "It jusappeared" (disappeared)

Shelly: "Isn't that pretty snow?"
T: "Yeah, It's like little tiny dogs"

T: "Can you take this (her clothes) off because I am going to do an experiment with my body?"

M (after a collision with Brandon while playing football): "Can you bring my cars here?  I can't really walk because my arm hurts."

Watching Packers playoff game and Clay Matthews (Packer's star linebacker with long hair) comes on the TV:
T: "I want to be the girl."
Brandon (Laughing): "That's a boy."
T: "No, it's a girl.  Can I be the girl?"

T: (After colliding with M) "I bit my teeth when I bonked him."

Brandon had a rough night of sleep after the sump pump stopped working correctly.  Shelly and T were talking about how Brandon would benefit from a nap but has to work.
T: "Well, even if he can't take a nap, he can just think about it."

After T ran into M's head and M was obviously hurt:
Brandon: "Ouch, did she get your ear?"
M: "No, she got my brain."

T: "I woke up on the funny side of the bed."

After overhearing the Steelers were playing football: T (Annoyed): "Do they take stuff? What do they do?"

T (with a pretend cast on her arm):
M: "How did you get that?"
T: "I twisted my ankle."

S: "T, do you need to go to the bathroom?"
T: "No, I'm just panicking."

T: "Can you put on some Paul Nailish?" (Nail Polish... and she continues to call it that)

T: "This is my baby.  She was two when I gave birth to her under my tummy."

While Playing soccer:
M: "It's a collion and two to six
B: " A collion?"
M: "Yeah, I got passed a billion and a snillion, so now I'm to a collion."
B: "Oh."

T playing in the kitchen with Brandon:
T: "We have a new center open."
B: "What is it?"
T: "A chapstick center."

T (jumping on bed): "My ear is making this sound."
S: "No, the bed is making that sound and you hear it with your ear."
T: "Oh."

Brandon was standing up and T was leaning against him:
T: "I'm laying on you as a tree pillow."

M (singing "Rockin Around the Christmas Tree"): "Everyone dance with Lemonie (Rhymes with Melanie) and Ukulele."

M: The swing kind of makes me feel ignauseus.  (After this Brandon and M had a long debate about whether it is nauseous or ignauseus.

M: Can I have some water?  I have been, like, dreading it!

M: What does "gutting" mean? Like, "They're gutting for me?"
Shelly then attempted to explain gunning in the most non-violent way possible.

T (Holding a green jelly bean while naming the flavors of all the jelly beans): What flavor is this?
Brandon: "Lime"
T: "Slime"
She didn't ask that as a question, just accepted that green beans taste like slime. She then moved on to the next color.

T: "I feel like I have to throw up from my nose."

T was asking for her "tired blanket" and Shelly told her it needed to stay upstairs in her room until nap time.
T: "But I'm hungry for my thumb.  For Real!"

T (looking at her reflection): "I was igmiring (admiring) my dress."

T: "Mom, I don't want this lamp here because it is ignoring me."
S: "Is it annoying you?"
T: "Yes, it is ignoring me."

T: "I put food in the chimpanzee house." (She meant that she put bird food in the bird feeder that has a chimney.  Once we figured it out we couldn't stop laughing)

T (looking for an excuse to not eat her dinner): "The chicken cacciatore gives me a tummy ache and the grapes give me a headache."

T was riding in the Burley cart during a walk with Shelly.
T: "Get me out of here!"
S: "Are you talking to me T?"
T: "No, my chips are saying that to me... Get me out of here."

T: Do you know what I want to do for my Birthday?  I want to go to church and take my sweet rice cake and feed it to the ants.  (Well, at least she made the connection between ants and sweets)

T: "Daddy, my mommy dog is hatching eggs; they're under her."

T: "It hurts when I go poo but not when I go pee.  I think I have a bladder convection."

Mexico Vacation in Photos!

I wrote all about our incredible trip to Mexico HERE.  This post will mainly just be pictures, but if you want to know details about the trip, please check out the link. You can see pictures of our kids week at home in the post directly below this post. 

T: I decided to wear one of Mommy's shirts (tied in the back) so I could feel her close to me when she went to Mex-co
We decided to do sort of a "Flat Stanley" thing with the kids photos.  We took their school pics and taped them to paint stir sticks.  We took the kids pics with us to Mexico and had fun posing them different places.  The pictures might not be that interesting to blog readers, but our kids loved them!

The kids faces covering up their actual faces.  A little creepy. 
Side by side!
This flag at the airport will always remind us of coming home with our kids.  We knew we needed a picture there. 
Not posed!  Motion sickness meds cause me to sleep every minute we are in the air.  Travel goes so quickly!
Next stop, Puerto Vallarta!
Can you tell the kids requested lots of airplane photos?!
We had our own soaker pool on our balcony.  I couldn't wait to try it out.  
I thought the kids would like it too!
As much as I tried I just couldn't sleep in.  I was able to see the sunrise over the mountains one morning.  I am not a photographer so I didn't know what to do with the settings.  It was much prettier, but you get the idea.
The view from our balcony. 
Lovely Sunrise
We thought T would appreciate this.  She did. 
One of the MANY pool areas. 
The view getting off the elevator on our floor. 
Every night was saw incredible light shows from our room.  They had invisible screen type things so there were images to see, but capturing them with a camera is hard.  The sound and lights were lovely.  I enjoyed them each time.
A peacock.
A bird in flight.
Light show.

Brandon's favorite spot was in the shade!

My favorite spot was in these water lounges.  The water was so warm it was like soaking in the tub.  Ironically I bought 5 swimsuits with me and every picture of me is in the same suit.  Funny!

We tried to get an iguana photo for M but we missed it.  This picture was the closest thing. 

More pool loveliness.
The start of the lazy river. 
There were lots of tiny pools within the bigger pools for families with little kids.  You can also see the water lounges I loved so much.

The beach was fun, but sand was hot.  

The waiters were talented.  They actually used these with trays full of food.  We never managed to capture a photo of them though. 

Lovely lazy river. 
Our view.
The entrance to our resort.  Can you see me way at the bottom.  These guys were HUGE. 
Even the toes were huge. 
One day we just had some fun with the kids pictures!

Playing hide and seek.

Ready for dinner
Going for a wagon ride.
With a pretty lady. 
The back side of the waterslide. 
I knew T would like this dress.  She loved it and wants me to wear it every day!
Our room. 
Our kitchen. 
Lovely sunset. 
Beautiful views. 
Together in paradise. 
Brandon enjoyed a late night snack!
One more light show shot. 
We had to dry biking clothes creatively. 
Beautiful Puerto Vallarta. 
The Ocean!
We got a little too close to this guy!
Brandon loved the purse holder. 
It was a beautiful night. 
The food was INCREDIBLE!
We wished T could have seen the dancers. 
The sun was beginning to set after dinner. 
Looking back at the place we ate.
Gone!  So lovely!
And an artistic shot!
Everything you see is part of our resort!  It was huge!
The sand bar that was "way out in the ocean" suddenly was dry land.  A very cool feeling to walk out there. 
Fancy Girl and Fancy Zebra. 
A beautiful sunrise over the mountains as we left Puerto Vallarta.  

We had a WONDERFUL week.  I hope we can make another trip back there one day... maybe soon!
