We ran out of the children's toothpaste last night. I thought we had an extra in the "cabinet" but we didn't. The kids had to use adult toothpaste (aka "hot" toothpaste). Tonight while Ellis was saying his prayers, he said, "Please don't make us use 'hot' toothpaste any more..."

A Boat

We took the kids to "Ponyo" today and there was a part where they were talking about ships. When they got a close up of the ships, Gordon started laughing and said, "They thought they were ships but they are just boats!"

Let Me Check My Schedule

I overheard this conversation between Jared and Mia:

Jared: I fell off my bike and scraped up my whole arm.

Mia: You get hurt a lot.

Jared: I know. It is in my life schedule.

After Jared hit Mia, I told him that he can't hit girls. He looked at me and said, "It's no fair! It's like girls are invincible!"


Jared had his friend over on Friday and they were playing Mario Brothers. I heard Jared say, "Lewis, did you know I am a professional at this game? I am."

Snowflake Sweater

Gordon wore a sweater with a picture of a snowflake on it to church last week. One of the ladies in the ward said, "Gordon, I like your snowflake sweater." Gordon said, "It isn't a snowflake sweater. It is a sweater with a snowflake on it."


Yesterday while sitting at the table eating breakfast Gordon said, "Ellis. Did you know that our dad has no hair? He doesn't. Did you know that?"
