January 2015 - Frosty the Snowman

This month I'll just share some fun quotes and stories that will hopefully give you a glimpse into our silly family.  No wonder these people make me smile and laugh so much.


Milestones:
Tyler can count to 10 all by himself.
He will hide by himself for hide and seek.
Alexa can say the first four Articles of Faith completely from memory.
Alexa has graduated from nursery to primary at Church and she is definitely a little socialite.
The kids built their first snowman.
Kyle learned how to braid Alexa's hair.


The kids love playing Go Fish! Tyler and Grandpa
were partners for this particular game.

Quotes / Stories of the Month: 
Alexa asked me, "How was work today?"
Me: "Good.  I interviewed some people to work there."
Alexa (serious face, having an adult conversation): "Oh, that's good.  That's nice.  What else?"

Alexa (overheard while playing with Tyler): "We need to get in a rocket ship to go to Earth with Jesus."

Alexa: "Did you know that pumpkins turn into pie?  Just like caterpillars turn into butterflies."
Me: "Yes, they're totally the same."

Alexa: "When I'm a mom I want to drink milkshakes every day."
Me: "Excellent plan."

Explaining the concept of dating to Alexa because she asked me why Craig was going on a date and what that means. When I told her she said, "Hmm. I don't want to go on a date with a boy. I want to go on a date with my parents. Maybe we could go on a date tonight? Do you want to take me to a movie?"

Alexa: "But mom, I decided Batman is going to marry me."

Me: I'm going to work out now.
Alexa: Ooh, tough guy!
In asking her later where that was from, she said Mulan. Haha.

Alexa (to Tyler): "I get to go to Primary at church today because I'm a grown up and because I'm so tall."
Tyler: "A growbup?"

A picture of Captain Moroni (Book of Mormon prophet and leader) was on the front of our church program. Both kids yelled "Captain America!!" when they saw it. Haha.

We were all dressed up and driving to a fancy, romantic date to the Symphony and I told Kyle that he should serenade me. His response, "I can honestly only think of children's songs. I can't think of a single romantic song to sing to you right now."

We went paintballing with the Beattys.  It was fun, although I forgot how much it stings!  I lost feeling on the lower half of my face for about an hour from a hit to the chin that managed to fly in under my mask.  I felt like I had just gone to a brutal dentist.
