Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3

I'm having one of those days. I should be madly packing and laundering. It would be kind to Mark if I cleaned. Instead I'm finding out how effective my years of schooling was with random internet quizzes on very important topics like how few colors and countries I can name in 5 mins, and the fact that I would only scrape by with a "D" grade in an 8th grade science class;
I have a ridiculously high knowledge of Disney movie trivia, I'm highly creative, I'm almost as good with my spelling as I am with my grammar, I would survive for 1 min 17 secs in space without a ship or suit, 138,606 people died the day I was born and in past years a couple popes, multiple kings, William Henry Harrison, George Albert Smith, & Martin Luther King, jr. all died that day as well, my house has enough food to keep me alive for 1010 days, and I'm not inclined to be a cannibal.
I also found out that based on the number of times I can click my mouse in 30 seconds I have an insanely high amount of caffeine in me - although judging by the above stated I'm going to have to question that one.

Driving past Home Depot, Andrea excitedly shouted,
"Look! That's where Daddy lives!"

In our house, wearing panties and going potty is a big deal. It means you get to be called a "Big Girl." So when I slipped up one day and called Lacie a "Big Girl," Andrea was quite peeved. So I asked her what Lacie was:
"Lacie is not a 'Big Girl.' She' a Toddeler."
(says the 3-yr old)

(Andrea): "Mom, I'm making some ice cream."
(Net): "Mmmmm, can I have some?"
(Andrea): "Not yet. It's still too hot."

Andrea was pretty disturbed at Mark's trick of "taking his thumb off" -- to which she responded,
"Daddy, we can't take our bodies off. Heavenly Father made us our bodies and so they're special so we can't take them off."
(You tell him, Andrea! And Sunbeam teachers, you rock.)

Fun with Lacie


Lacie loves hats - of all varieties.

(Yes, that's my bra. And it's lacey. Haha. Glad it was clean.)

Complain, complain

So, after all my griping about the syrup the girls decided to go "less sticky" and make a lake in the kitchen. After all, we do live in Texas, it is blazing hot, we don't have a pool, and the refrigerator conveniently dispenses nice, cold water.
Awesome. Thanks, girls.
