Silliness reigns

We had a lot of fun in our house this weekend. Nothing big and exciting. My kids just crack me up. We had several belly laughing moments and lots of smiles. Here are a few of the silly things they do:

Brandon told me this joke:
B: What kind of candy do they eat in Africa?
Me: I don't know. What kind?
B: It's called The Library. (At this point he busts up laughing with his completely contagious laugh, so I laugh too, even though I don't get it!)
Me: What does it taste like?
B: Library books! (Followed by more belly laughs.)

Whitney must've been really impressed with Brandon's preschool graduation ceremony, because she continues to talk about it every day. She will take a random object--a sock, a book, a stuffed animal--and balance it on her head and say, "Gradulation. It's my gradulation." (I guess that's her little hybrid way of saying Congratulations and Graduation at the same time!) It is very cute.
This is what happens when you ask ten 5-year olds to pose for a group photo. Just kidding. I TOLD them to make silly faces in this one and they did a great job.

I took Brandon to see Disney Pixar's new movie, Cars, on Saturday. We both liked it. He ran around the house the rest of the day calling himself Lightning McQueen. In the car on the way home he said, "Mom, that movie was about friends, changing, and speeding." I thought that was a great review.
After Sunday dinner, Brandon and Andrew were making funny faces at each other and I remembered that one Halloween Andrew and I had dressed as the "First Human Clone gone wrong" and we had used masking tape to make our faces look all distorted. I thought Brandon would love that, and this is the result! (Plus some fake teeth from a vending machine) Voila! It barely even looks like Brandon, huh?

Hope you had plenty to smile about this weekend, too!

Hi there Andrea - Thanks for the great picturs. Dennis just yelled "3 points" to me so that means Miami has come storming back - I must flee!
Love you,
Mom
