Ellis has these crazy long eyelashes.  He was snuggling with me this morning after getting out of bed and I asked him how he got such long eyelashes.  He looked at me and smiled and said, "Well, I do pull on them a lot."

I made Porcupine Meatballs for dinner tonight.  Ellis was eating them and started crying.  I asked him what happened and he said, "A porcupine got in my applesauce."  When he finished eating he asked, "Did I eat enough porcupines?"


Seth is singing in a choir in December.  He is singing with a group that is singing Homeless from the Forgotten Carols.  He told the kids, "I have to go practice being homeless."

After Seth left for practice, Gordon came to me and said in a very concerned voice, "Mommy. Why does Daddy want to practice being homeless?" 


Seth recently set up an antennae on the house so we could get the broadcast channels. We have been a year and a half without any television.  We were watching a show the other day and a commercial came on.  Gordon said, "I remember these! Can we watch these?!"
