Kids say the darndest things...

I went through our facebook pages and compiled a list of all the funny things our kids have said that we made note of over the last year. I'm sure there's MUCH more, but I don't remember them all...

While carving pumpkins this year, I said something undoubtedly hilarious, to which Brooklyn just rolled her eyes. I said, "Ya know, one day, you're going to think I'm cool. Maybe not soon, but one day." To which she replied, "I seriously doubt it." She got a few laughs...

On the way home from her 1st gymnastics class, Chloe said, in a very disappointed tone, "Hey, I didn't get a gold medal!"

Chloe wakes me up telling me that she cut her hair. I asked why, she said she was trying to color and it was in her way. So she cut about 7-8 inches off each side :(  It was a very sad day for me.

Today Chloe asked me a question, and I nodded. Then she looked at me and said, "Mommy, use your words."

During the fireworks, they played God Bless America. Chloe put her arm around me, swayed to the music, and sang, "God bless fireworks".

While the kids were playing in their room, I overheard my son say "You can use your baby as a weapon". I'm not sure if I should be concerned.

Today Chloe told me, I miss mommy and daddy. I really miss baby Hailey! I see them later? I told her she could and she asked, Hailey hurt hers foot? I said yes, her foot hurts and she said, aw! Poor baby Hailey! They fix it at the hosapello! (hospital) She is so sweet!!

Learning to write

Lately, Chloe has been really interested in learning to write her name, and everyone else's. I think she's doing an amazing job for her age! She wrote this one all by herself and then came and showed me!

Show off day

Chloe had her first Show off day for gymnastics. It was so cute to see all the little kids tumbling around. She absolutely LOVES gymnastics! I'm glad we got her into it. They started first with their floor routines. Then we split up into classes and they showed off their skills on the balance beam, the bar, and the trampoline. Then at the end they all got to stand up on the podium and do their champion pose and get a certificate!


My mom mentioned to me that Brooklyn had asked if she would teach her to make paper snowflakes because she saw some in a window. We ended up not having time and my parents had to leave before we got to make them. Later that evening, we all sat down in the living room and made snowflakes together. Hailey was content sitting in her highchair and watching. The kids had so much fun and made some really good ones! We hung them up in the living room window and on our front door.

My parents and Randy, Danielle, and Addy were able to come to our house for Thanksgiving this year. Chad and Tasha went to Minnesota to spend it with her family, and Larry and Lisa were in Tennessee. We skyped with Lisa a little bit that morning. Addy and Chloe spent almost the whole 3 days playing dress up. We didn't really have dress up clothes, so they just went through the closet finding any dress of Chloe's or Brooklyn's that they could wear. They had a blast together. On Friday morning, Rob, Danielle, Mom, and I went out shopping. It was the easiest Black Friday shopping I've ever experienced! We didn't wait more than 10 minutes anywhere we went. It was very smooth. After we got home, the boys went out to blow some stuff up. They blew up a water heater and a piece of it hit Ben in the forehead. He ended up with 7 stitches and a great story. Luckily, no one else was hurt.

Hailey's haircut

This was Hailey's 2nd haircut. Her bangs were getting so long they were always in her eyes. It ended up a little shorter than I had planned, but they grow fast.

We walked across the street to vote for the President and Chloe insisted that she get our stickers.
