Silly Boys

M: Look Kai, the dentist sent you a Happy Birthday email!
K: Oh, I'll go brush my teeth.

Getting our post doctor visit Great Harvest fix-
C: Mmm, this is so good! What's the secret ingredient for your pumpkin chocolate chip bread?
Employee: I can't tell you it's a secret.
C: It must be the pumpkin!

K: If I had a bread store I would name it Bread Grows or The Bread Brothers
C: Cuz I would own it too and we're brothers.

K: Do you know what my favorite part about going to the doctor was?
J: Getting a sucker?
K: Uh, my second favorite thing?
M: What?
K: Getting to pee in the cup and putting it in the mini door

Family Prayer-
C:  We thank you that Mommy could have DJ, so we can have some cuteness in the house.

I mentioned to Jake that I needed to pump and he burst out into song-
You're gonna get your, get your pump; hook it up to your lady lumps. Your lumps, your lumps, your lovely lady lumps.

K: Liam, what's your favorite color
L: Blue!
C: He'll just say the last thing you said. Green!
K: What's your favorite color?
L: Green!

Reason for taking my phone-
K: I wanted to know what it felt like to have a phone in my pocket.

Uh, we don't have a cat. Probably never will. 
I'm allergic and too cheap to get a hypo-allergenic one.
But this sure would be a cute kitty. 

TMI alert
Reason for not using the toilet for his poo -
K: Because I didn't want to.
At least it was stashed in TP bundles. On Saturday, he will be cleaning all the bathrooms in the house.

This machine looks awesome.

I hope to use my friend's so I can decorate Kai and Coby's shields and swords.

Silly Boys

Coby fell asleep in the middle of a tantrum

C: DJ smells like Marshmallows! I wonder why? 
M: Dunno
C:  Maybe he was sprayed with Marshmallow spray. Yum!

During morning devotional,
M: What does it mean when Heavenly Father gives us daily guidance?
C: He guides us.
K: Like GPS,
C: to places we've never been.

M: Do you know what it mean whens I say "Heavenly Father will pour out his spirit more abundantly upon us?"
C: You know when you bundle up DJ? Well, it's like that. He bundles us up so we are comfortable and cozy. Uh, like a force field.

I guess Liam thought George needed a bath

At breakfast,
J: It's hot. He turns the fan on
C: Oh, no! I hate the bluffeting sound!
M: Someone's seen the Dyson fan commercial.

Coby insists that DJ  has a tooth coming in. During a number of family prayers, Coby has asked "Please bless that DJ will get all of his teeth"

DJ update:
DJ rolled onto his side, and watched me as I crossed the room.

He is my first binky baby, but he has since discovered the joy of gnawing on his fist when he is hungry.
He pushes at the bottle when he is done eating, and it seems like he is batting at the toys dangling above him.

He started scooting around too. I left him in this position

and found him like this

then like this

Silly Boys

Liam stuffed his shirt with magnetic letters, & walked around cradling his alphabelly.

Coby made a few alterations to the comics this week.

The boys are  fascinated with Percy Jackson and the Olympians. Jake read the first book to them and we recently watched the movie.
C: Moma, you know the part where Grover is holding up Medusa's head and says "Guys, I cannot pee with her watching!"
K: We made a song about it!!
Both boys: I always feel like Medusa's watching me. And I CAN NOT pee!
They bust out in a fit  of giggles. Giggles, I tell you.

Kai made his own lunch: a ketchup mustard thin sandwich, strawberry banana yogurt and a cheese stick

The boys went over to the Clement house to play. They climbed all over the tree in the back yard. At one point Kai climbs up with a weapon and says "Now, I can shoot anyone who surrenders."

DJ started cooing this week.

Yard Sale

Hey friends, family, neighbors, and anyone else living within a relatively close proximity to our pleasant little grove of a town... we're having a community yard sale! Not only will there be the regular garage sale stuff... but also quite a few crafty things from our awesome neighbors. 

Kai is going to have a lemonade stand. Coby wants to sell something as well. Dunno what yet. We're selling a breadmaker, a Cubical cube storage unit, other miscellaneous items and maybe some bibs.

Family Names Friday II

Since we have another member of the family, I need to make an addition to this post.

6. Daniel Jackson 'Imiloanahoku Walkenhorst

Daniel = Hebrew: God is Judge
Jake's dad's name is Danny

Jackson = English: Son of Jack
(Diminutive Form Of John: God Is Gracious)

' = Hawaiian: seek far the stars or Star Explorer
the dot represents the break between each word for the literal translation of the name. 

'Imiloa also has a figurative meaning of one with great knowledge or avaricious knowledge.

Any guess why we came up with this name?
