Car time conversation

20 Jul

Background info: Ian is 7, Kaiden is 6, liam is 4, and nana is…never mind how old (as dirt) I am!

 

so we are on our way home from a movie and Liam asks:

“nana?  Where do we live?”

i reply “we live near Trent”

liam: “no, we live in canada”

ian and Kaiden: “we do not live in CANADA!”

liam: “yes-HUH!  I know because of the maple syrup we eat on pancakes and waffles”

ian and Kaiden snicker and snort.  Ian:  “Liam do you live in china?

liam: “no”

kaiden: “do you live in America”

liam:”no”

ian:  ” well look at that American flag!”

kaiden: ” that means you live in America not Canada”

ian:  UNITED STATES of America! We are a m e r i c a n s!”

It’s quiet for a minute and then Liam says just loud enough for the boys to hear:

“I live in French”

And groans erupt from the back seat along with much head slapping.

And several lunch hours cutting out lego magnets:

we tossed in a little jar of bubbles that were super cheap and all we had to do was open the package!  Which after the crayon day, was about all I could manage!

So we have enjoyed the tradition of the pickle on the Christmas tree with the boys.  Last year however, the pickle was dropped and shattered into a crapzillion pieces.  Today we found a pickle at target.  It was only $3 so we decided to get 2 just in case.  Within 2 minutes of discovering the pickle, due to extreme excitement, the pickle was dropped, and shattered and the tears were flowing.  Thank goodness we had bought a spare.  I almost feel like we should go buy 2 more!  The tree goes up this weekend!  Yea!

Happy birthday momma!

27 Oct

Some of us girls got together to celebrate Mom’s birthday today with a little lunch and then a trip to the autumn  festival.  We did well……

Shopping!

Eliana is NOT under all those goodies!  She was safe in her mommy’s arms.  And yeah, not everything made the photo….shipping is a wonderful thing!
