Austin Here We Come!!!

I'm off to Austin tomorrow for 5 days of fun! Hurray for girls vacations!!!!

Wii Woes

It's been kind of a hard week for the kids because the Wii is broken. Evidently it doesn't like it when a baby crams more than one disc into it at a time. It stops working. Damon found out from the nintendo website that we qualify for a free repair. You can even print out the shipping label and send it federal express on their dime, all we have to do is follow their packaging instructions. Damon came home yesterday and announced at the dinner table that he'd talked to the "Wii People" who asked him if we had a Sam Brown in our house. According to Damon, they could tell from their records that Sam Brown was an excellent Super Smash Brother's player and therefore they would fix our Wii for us. This got a big "REALLY?!" from me. It also got my husband's napkin thrown at me and a good laugh. Ok, so I'm pretty gullible. But in my defense, I wasn't the only one who fell for it. He had the boys going too.

Yellow Day

I missed a call on my cell phone during preschool from my mom. Since she's the art teacher at Sam's preschool, and is supposedly WORKING :0) I immediately thought something was wrong. I called her back and found out she only wanted to tell me a funny story that has kept her laughing all morning. During circle time, Sam's teacher asked several kids if they could spell yellow (today is YELLOW day!) When she asked Sam if he could spell it he said something like, "I've got a question first. Did you know that my dad's middle name is Paul?!"

Guess he just thought that it would be an appropriate time to throw out that random piece of information. You gotta love preschoolers!!!!

Playing the Faces Game

I don't know if I could possible remember all of the emotions that my mom and niece were portraying - they all kind of start to look alike, but I'll try...

Mad
Scared?
Surprised?
Sad....
don't know what the rest of these are...




stinky?!

Being the Little Guy

It all started out innocently enough....these things always do. ...there were smiles and toothy grins....and lots and lots of dimples showing....
....hmm....what's this? Looks like something of my brother's....
Ohp! Yep! That's definitely something of my brother's - and he wants it back! "Max, can I have that back?" (Watch out folks, things are about to get ugly.)

"Why, oh why does he get such satisfaction out of taking things away from me!? I'm just little!"
M0-0m!
He took that thing away!
....and I still really want it....
....but I guess I've resigned myself to a life of always being the little guy.
