Funnies for the Scrapbook

Let's face it . . .blogging isn't happening and isn't likely to happen.  We've been doing fun stuff and its low on the radar screen.  Last week the kids and I spent a week with another mom at the beach (fun times!) yesterday Elijah got a scratched cornea from Lydia's nail.  Between keeping up with the children, keeping up with the housework and spending the required 4+hours at the pool with the kids most days we're too busy to blog.

Anyway, here are some funny things the kids have said lately . .

Lydia:
"I can't do the laundry, I want to but I can't."
Me:
"Why can't you?"
Lydia:
"Because I can't always do what I want to!"


As Bethany was putting a slice of ham on her leg at lunch instead of eating it . . .Elijah pipes up with:
"Don't worry mom, she's just wearing "hammy" downs (hand me downs)"

Bethany:
"What's mommy's name?"
Me:
"Covey"
Bethany:
"What's daddy's name?"
Me:
"Justin" (we went on through granny, grampy, nana and papa and grandmama then . . .)
Bethany:
"What's Jesus' name?"
Me:
"Jesus"
Bethany:
"No! In Jesus name "AMEN"  "

At the beach when I interrupted Elijah reading he freaked out and yelled at me to "pause the book!" so he didn't lose his place.

When Bethany was fighting a nap I asked if she would close her eyes:
"No! If I close my eyes I might go asleep.  I will blink them for you though . . . blink blink blink . . .how's that mommy?"

J is for Jesus

We are having candy canes for dessert (cleaned out the candy cabinet) . . .Elijah: "The candy cane is for Christmas because it is a "J" shape. J is for Jesus.  The White is his skin, the red is his blood and I guess the green is the slimy stuff that dead bodies grow while they are in the tomb for three days."
