Knock knock...

Tonight, while carrying out the bedtime routine, we were all goofing off a little in Landon's room. He started talking about a part of mass that is sometimes sung...the breaking of the bread (that's according to Google...I don't know all the proper names for the parts of the mass...Mary, if you're reading this I might need a refresher. :))
He wanted to sing it but he gets so embarrassed when he sings so he asked me to come into the living room and sing it with him. When he gets embarrassed he gets a little goofy but it made me happy that he's learning so much about the mass and that he likes to talk about it.  We sang it together. 

Then. Out of nowhere. He says..."knock knock"

I ask the obligatory, "who's there?"

He says, "little old lady"

I say, "little old lady who"...while mind you, still in the religious frame of mind and a bit confused as to how we transitioned to a knock knock joke so quickly. 

He says...about as dry witted as possible, "I didn't know you could yodle!"

I could not stop laughing!!!!!  It was surely a "you had to be there" moment but it's one I don't want to forget. That kid can be so unexpectedly funny sometimes!!!  Turns out he and Jim read that joke is his Highlights magazine last I sure love my boys!

Blogpress out - Blogger in!

The blogpress app doesn't work...and contacting  support was a waste of my time. So, I posted on the Facebook and my blogger friends suggested this new one.  Let's give the blogger app a try...and what a great excuse to share pictures of MK wearing the lipstick I should wear more often. Isn't she beautiful?

Snow Fun 2015!

I've been hoping for snow all winter long and in the last couple of weeks we have finally seen a little of the winter weather I've been waiting for!  The kiddos have had fun playing outside and...aside from a few days I spent with the flu so have I!  We've done a little sledding, gone on walks, enjoyed hot chocolate and we've had fun just being together!  We've had spaghetti and popsicles for breakfast (just the kids...grody), we've watched a few movies...the kids have had too much electronic time and I've enjoyed seeing all the fun snow day pictures posted by our friends.  School has been out several days and I've worked from home quite a bit. The kids have enjoyed extra Nana and Papa time and although Jim has been very busy with work, he's been home a lot to play too!  Tomorrow is probably our last snow day this year and I plan on working a little and playing a lot!  Landon has cyber school work and I have some fun little experiments planned...I hope to make our last snow day together super fun!

Happy Valentine's Day 2015

A few weeks ago I decided it was about time to dust off the fancy camera and have a good old fashioned photo shoot for Valentine's Day!  The kiddos have grown and changed so much and I haven't been so good at taking good, quality pictures!  They're just pretty fun these days!  They adore one another and I hope they always do.  We love you Landon and Maddie Kate!

Landon had basketball evaluations today and he's never so much as dribbled a ball. During evaluation they have the kiddos dribble, move side to side and shoot baskets. He had trouble dribbling but he made a basket during shooting!! We have started a new tradition at our house where daily we talk a out our high and low for the day. Tonight I told Landon that my high for today was seeing him make a basket and in the sweetest proudest voice I've ever heard him use he said "that was mine too". I know it seems minor and even silly but the pride he showed made me so happy!! He's growing up so fast and lately I think about how it seems like yesterday he was born and he's already nearly 6! I'm so proud of the ornery dude and I hope he grows up knowing how much I love him and how proud of him I am.
