Kids Say the Funniest Things

The past few weeks, the kids have said some really funny things.  Someone asked me if I was keeping a list because I would forget.  I realized, the best place to keep that kind of list would be on here.  This blog has become a way to communicate with out of town family, but mostly a memory bank for me. :)  So, this is so that I will not forget the funny things my kids say.
Me:  Madelyn, come here. (pause)  Madelyn, come here.  (pause)   Madelyn, please come here!
Madelyn (as she walks in the room):  Mommy, you not need me so much!  (as she puts both hands up with palms facing me)

Me:  Warren, come here and listen to what Madi said to me.
Warren:  What did you say to your mommy?
Madelyn:  We not need to talk about this anymore!  (With hand gestures and helium voice)
***Of course we died laughing, and I have no recollection of why I was calling for her. :)

Cooper:  Hey, Momma, can we go to Jackson today to get me a pet?
Me:  What?  What kind of pet?
Cooper:  A Guinna pig or a "Kimono Dragon" or a crab or a cat?
Me:  What???????


One day while at Granny and Pop Pop's house, Madelyn just said out of the blue...."What in the World (woyald)?  What are y'all talking about?"   She said it like we were crazy.  It was too funny!

It is also funny to hear her say things like actually and aggravating.  One day she used them both in a sentence.  Actually, Mommy, Bubby is  aggravating (agabating) me!!!
Cooper had me tie a blanket around his neck. As he was "flying" around the house, Madi said, "Oh, you a pwincess!!!" (imagine in a helium filled voice). Cooper stopped and said, "Madi, you're silly, I'm a superhero!" Wow, the joy of having a boy and a girl!!! :)
One night when the weather was supposed to be really bad, we were coming home from the shelter of our church basement.  The lightening was just beautiful and Cooper said, "It must be Jesus' birthday, and they are having a fireworks' show in Heaven!"

Summer Bucket List

OK...the summer is already flying I decided to make a list of things that I want to accomplish this summer. No, not lists of cleaning and organizing, lists of what to do with the kids.  So here goes...I will be adding (and hopefully crossing off) ideas all the time.

safari park  zoo  reading chain   bubbles  sidewalk chalk  pool  picnic  bowling  skating  vbs   make birdfeeder  sprinkler catch fireflies  spend the weekend at the "bus"  library program each week  take crafts for grandparents  outdoor family game night  backyard s'mores  homemade icecream slip n slide  backyard campout  flashlight walk in the dark  water gun fight  eat breakfast outside  teach Cooper to ride bike w/out training wheels take flowers to grandparents  watermelon on the trampoline watch the clouds  Cars 2  bake cookies and share with a neighbor  lemonade stand  scavenger hunt  help someone write letters to out of town family  watch a sunset  

Model Search

I entered the kids in Brandy Kemp Photography's Model Search 2011.  I really just did it to get some cute shots from Brandy (free 15 minute session), but also hoping to get some free etsy clothes and accessories for Madelyn.  If Madelyn wins, she could get to model for some etsy shops...then she gets to keep whatever she modeled.  It sure would help our checkbook because I sure do love all those cute etsy shops.  :)  Cooper had fun, but Madelyn loved it.  She minded Brandy so well.  She did exactly what she told her to do.  Here are the pics that Brandy posted on fb.
