Things That Make Me Smile 2/8/13

Happy Friday! What a great week we've had! Jake finished his first full-length chapter book all by himself. I think he may be starting to actually enjoying reading a tiny bit, but shhh, don't tell him because I don't think he's quite realized it yet himself. Leighton and the kids made a delicious cake for my birthday, all chocolatey and peanut buttery and super yummy. Maybe I can con him into writing up a post with the recipe soon! (Hear that, Honey???) A friend I hadn't seen in many years came over with her 4 children. We had a good time catching up and our kids had lots of fun playing together.    

Lots of fun, lots of laughing, lots of smiles.

1. Alyssa, dreamily: "Every time I see Tyler, it's like a dream come true." 

2. Zac, after jumping off the couch: "I was flying like a butterfly!"

3. Zac: "I'm not going to marry Alyssa."
Me: "Why not?"
Zac: "'Cause her has green eyes."
Me: "What color eyes do you want to marry?"
Zac: "Blue!"

4. Jake: "What do you call a hippo with the hiccups? . . . A hiccupotamus!"

5. Jake: "Mom, can you make my sandwich?"
Me: "Why can't you make it yourself?"
Jake: "Because you put love in it, and it tastes so much better than when I make it. I don't know how to put love in it."


7. Alyssa: "You're the best mom. Every time Tyler cries, you get him."

8. Zac & Tyler were playing under the kitchen table. When Tyler coughed, Zac told him, "Shh! They'll see you."

9. Me: "What would you like to drink?"
Zac: "Can I have some alligator?"
Me: "Some what?"
Zac: "Alligator."
Me, confused: "What? . . . Oh, Gatorade?"

10. Jake: "He taught me how to speak British."
Me: "Really? And how do you do that?"
Jake: "It's easy. All you do is take a word and add ish to it."

11. Zac: "We need hi-ya wheels for the van so it can hi-ya through the snow."

What made you smile this week???

P.S. I just realized that it's February and I have not written '13 for the date on any of my posts this year! I've been putting '12 this whole time. And no one even pointed it out! (And yes, I'm off to change each one now . . . )  :)
