My Silly Kids

There's so much going on that I need to document but I need to take a moment to remembersome of the funny things my kids do on a daily basis.


  • "hocked a loogie" (how the heck do you spell that?) into the cupholder in the car. That's not thing funny part. It's absolutely disgusting. What was funny was his reaction. When I chided him for it, he was completely dumbfounded, as if it was the only logical thing he could have done
  • He's having a hard time understanding the need for a little aggression in football. At his first game he skipped off the field. Skipped. I about died laughing.
  • He spent a half an hour the other day trying to lick his elbow. He swears he did. (pretty positive he didn't)
  • The other night we were eating ice cream and I told Brayden to finish up quickly so we would have time to read (We're reading Indian and the Cupboard as a family). His response? "I'm done. I can eat ice cream anytime but you one read to me once a day!" He walked away from a nearly full bowl of ice cream to read with me. Love my little bookworm!!
  • She named her stuffed dog "Jerrel Princess Hebdon". Sounds good to me.
  • She lost her bottom two teeth and is constantly sticking her tongue through the hole.
  • We were half way through her game today when I looked down the line of cheerleader and realized her shirt was on backwards. When I told her to change it she said she did it on purpose because she likes the back better than the front
  • He put so many sprinkles on his halloween cookies tonight that I couldn't even see the cookie. Just a pile of sprinkles
  • Ethan said prayer by himself the other night. It went something like this "Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for mommy, thank you for green suckers and purple popsicles and ring pops and ice cream. thank you for papa. help us sleep good and please give Ethan lots of ice cream with chocolate and sprinkles. In the name of Jesus Christ Amen." No lie. I was nearly crying by the end of the prayer from trying to hold in my laughter.
  • At the football game yesterday he kept hiding his hands inside his sleeves and asking "Mommy, where are my hands? I lost my hands!" in a very serious voice. A few second later he'd pop them out of his sleeves say "Oh here they are!" and laugh and laugh. So cute.

Fun Fun

This first picture is Tawny's hair for church a few weeks ago. She really love it and insisted I include it on the blog.

Brayden and Ethan got to spend a morning on the tractor with Papa. They had so much fun!

A few weeks ago Tawny did the high school's cheer clinic and she really enjoyed it. They got to cheer with the high school cheerleaders at a football game and I could tell she felt very important down there on the field.

Of course Miss Maddie needed a coordinating outfit.
so cute!
The quality isn't great because I'm zoomed way in at night, but she had so much fun and was so cute out there.

Maddie got a little tired out so she took a nap on the bottom of the bleachers. I have not idea how she even managed it but I was so glad she did. Otherwise we would have had a cranky little girl.

Another hair shot. She asked for a "french braid from the top and bottom that met in the middle". She can be so specific!
One last cute pic to end on. You can see her little lopsided smile here. I love it!
