Love to an 8 year old

Allow me to relay my latest Truck Talk with my 8 (almost 9) year old.

Me: Jonnie, I love you.
Jonnie: Ok
Me: Hey! You don't say 'Ok' when someone says they love you! Well, unless its a girl and you don't really love her. You might like kissing her, or talking to her, or hanging out with her, but you don't love her. In that case you have to find something else to say.
Jonnie: ...(blank stare)
Me: you know, like... 'I like you a lot', or 'We sure have a lot of fun together', or ... ummm...
Jonnie: Or you run away screaming?
Me: Yeah, thats probably a good option.

Funny Boys

Momma: Why do boys think farting is so funny?

Jonathan (age 8): Because! It IS funny.

David (age 6): Because sometimes boys like (their) privates.

Thomas (age 4): Momma, did you know on Penguins of Madagascar their is a penguin named Private?

This Momma let the conversation end right there.

Snow Flurries in Oregon

We haven't had any snow where we live in Oregon. We have just had rain, rain, and more rain. When I got the boys home from school on Monday, they were delighted to see snow flurries. I mean, delighted. They ran around outside laughing. It was such a fun few moments. The snow didn't last but these pictures sure make me smile.

Elisabeth loves Bubbles

My sweet girl loves bubbles. She calls so many things "bubbles".

Polka dots are bubbles. She prefers to wear "bubbles" everyday. It's really hard to find something with polka dots for her to wear EVERY day. She is happy if she has her bubbles on.

Check out the outfit she wore to bed the other night.

Balls can also be considered bubbles. For example, she asks for "Bubble" cereal. (Okay, yes, sometimes she eats sugary cereal. It's true.) She loves it when she gets Captain Crunch with Berries. That's Bubble Cereal.

She gets so excited about bubbles. I am really ready for sunny weather. We sure are going to have fun blowing bubbles.

Windex Factory

My house smells like a Windex Factory right now. When Thomas washes windows, he uses way too much Windex.

Thomas and Elisabeth also cleaned the tables.

Here they are, my adorable helpers:
