The H Is Silent

Linda was reading riddles from a book and the kids and I were trying to guess the answers. She read through a couple which referenced elephants and I passively answered "elephino" to one of them, simply making reference to that popular riddle. Nobody seemed to catch on, so after Linda had read a few more I told the kids I was surprised they hadn't heard this one and asked them, "What do you get if you cross an elephant and a rhino?" They made a few wrong guesses until finally Mia, who must have heard me earlier but hadn't really processed what she heard, said, "helephino?"

I was watching Annie with the kids and we got to the part where Daddy Warbucks got Annie back and they were all so happy.  Gordon looked at me and said, "Are they going to get sealed together?"  I asked him, "What did you say?" Gordon said, "Are they going to go to the temple and get sealed?"
