Mia and Gordon were fighting over something in the car and Mia said, "Gordon won't stop fighting me!" I told her that it takes two people to fight. Mia said, "Or two nations."

I was reading a book to Ellis and he was naming all of the animals he could see. He pointed to the lion and said, "Lion." He pointed to the turtle and said, "Turtle." He pointed to the monkey and said, "Mia."

For FHE last night Seth was telling Jared all about where his name came from. We were watching a video slide show about Jared Cook and we got to one picture where he was burning his tie on his mission. Seth said, "He must be about halfway through."

Jared said, "Halfway through his life?"

The Soap Song

This is what I heard Gordon singing while in the shower this morning. "Soap in my eyes. Soap in my eyes. Soap in my bum. Soap in my eyes and soap in my bum."

Good Night

The last thing Ellis said to me last night, before he went to sleep was, "Mia's my best friend."

I was handing out Oreo'sto the kids for a snack. The kids were all saying, I want 3 or I want 2. Ellis got into it and said, "I want 42."
