The Ladies

Gunnar was on his phone and Trey kept taking photos and videos of him. Finally he asked Trey what he was doing. Trey said, "I'm trying to show the ladies that hanging out with me is an investment in the future."

Chris' Birthday

While celebrating Chris' birthday dinner, someone mentioned his propensity to allow our sweet dog, Tally, to kiss his face. When teased about this, he said slyly, "Sometime I just get desperate."

My mother . . .

My favorite encounter this past weekend was with the greeter at my mom's church who exclaimed of her and her visiting daughters: “Wow! That’s a strong family resemblance.” To which my mother promptly replied: “Yes. We all have heads."

My Little Mother

My mother has lost four inches over the years and when I approached her recently to give her a hug she said, "Oh, don't knock me over or I'll be flattered."

Smart Kid

Chris asked if he could enhance his Chex Mix with some M&Ms. I said sure, but just one handful. 

A minute later Chris asked mildly, "Where's dad?" 

"I don't know, why?" 

"I want him to take my handful."

When you have to be quiet

Chris and Nobel were struggling to be quite with their late night gaming. I walked out to discover their solution.

I had thought we were all grown up enough to handle real glass glasses, but no. After multiple people ended up with glass in their feet from the broken evidence of this failed plan, I purchased a replacement set of plastic "bar glasses" (as Trey calls them).

Chris observed me packing the glass ones up to give to Goodwill and asked me what I was doing. I said, "We keep breaking the glasses so I am giving them away." Chris observed, "Trey keeps breaking but we haven't given him away."
