Out of the Mouths of Babes--March

3/1--Brandon has a new aspiration in life.  Tonight while enjoying dinner at McDonalds, he announced, "When I grow up, I want to be the Hamburgler."

3/9--Whit randomly said, "I'm fute!  It's a new word.  It means funny AND cute."
Definitely one of the futest girls I know.

3/12--It was pizza night tonight.  Frozen pizza, to be exact.  (I promise I do cook meals most nights!)  When I was getting it out of the box and into the oven, Brandon cracked this one, "You better plug your nose when you cut the cheese...[pause for effect] pizza."

 [Insert Beavis laugh track here]

3/14--B brought in a huge cardboard box from outside.  I asked him what he was doing with it.  His reply:  "Building a supercomputer."  You never know what you're gonna hear from that kid.

3/14--We were in the backyard enjoying our new fire pit.  Brandon asked if we could have our nightly scripture study out there.  I told him I didn't think there was enough light.  He ran inside to get them anyway and on his way said, "Don't worry, Mom.  Carrots are my favorite vegetable, so I can see well in the dark."

 Don't let the glasses fool ya

3/16--Just for clarification, because I know y'all were wondering, Whitney informed me this morning that, "No one can eat a cloud."

3/18--Whitney was having a little picnic in the backyard with her friend.  All of their food was really yummy.  W said, "Everything in the world is yummy!  Except for honeydew melon... and trash."

 Ouch!  Out of nowhere, a huge slam on honeydew.

3/19  Whit walked around the house all evening with this:
She was pushing all the bumps and told us it was her
new cell phone, The Super Texter 900.

3/23--Dinner conversation tonight included this question from Whit, "Do they make flashdarks?  Like flashlights...but wherever you point them it gets dark?"  Not that I know of.

3/24--We were listening to my ipod on shuffle in the car.  A classical song came on and the kids were surprised and kinda confused.  Brandon wanted to know who wrote it.  I glanced at the info and couldn't see the composer, but told him the title was Piano Concerto Number One.  He said, "Number One wrote it?  He must go to the bathroom all the time!" Oh, boys and their potty humor.

3/27--We ate breakfast with the Buongiovanni's before church this morning.  It's amazing how quickly twelve people can plow through cold cereal.  We opened and then completely finished a box of Life.  Brandon said, "It should be called Life cereal until the box is gone, then it's Death cereal." 

3/29--B came up with new words to the Delilah song.  He sang, "Hey there, Saliva.  What's it like in New York City?"

3/30--We were at the dollar store today.  Brandon found this book:
Click to see Goliath's teeth.  He said, "Mom, Goliath is a vampire.  Come on, Stephenie Meyer, you forgot to include Goliath in your books!"  I love this kid.  He even throws out Twilight humor for me.

Bonus Caroline pics:

Loves storytime at the library.

Sleeps with a dozen dolls/stuffed animals.
Some mornings, she takes out as many as
she can hold.  Today, they all got to ride
in the stroller together.

She has grown up so much this month!
She's getting taller, her hair is growing,
and she talks up a storm.

Went through a phase earlier this month where
she wanted me to play the piano with her every day.

She would say, "Doing, Mommy.  Doing," because her favorite Primary song is "Do As I'm Doing." I love feeling her chubby little fingers on mine as I play.  We flip through the Primary songbook, but she only wants me to play songs that have illustrations with them.  The funniest part is when she turns to the two-page pictures at the beginning of each section and asks--no, demands--that I play that song.  I've made up some good ones.  My favorite is, "Girl in a Yellow Dress, Girl."

Loves playing in the backyard now that the weather is gorgeous.

Makes great cheezy smiles for me when I take her pics.

I think flashdarks are used to create black holes in outer space.
Thanks for some great pictures.
Was that a neighbor's house in that last picture?

Grandpa--That is one of the side rooms in Independence Hall, where I tried to keep Caroline occupied so Andrew could listen to part of the ranger's presentation.

Sandy said...
