Things That Make Me Smile 8/23/14

 Jake (8½), Alyssa (6), Zac (4½), Tyler (2)

Happy Friday! Did something happen this week that made you Smile? A funny conversation or a special blessing? Share it in the comments! We'd love to Smile with you.

1. Alyssa, finding Tyler on the bathroom counter covered head-to-toe in soap bubbles: "We have a major problem." 

2. Zac: "How do mouses play a big, giant piano?"
Me: "With big, giant hands."
Zac: "No."
Me: "Very carefully?"
Zac: "No. They put on a jet pack and fly up! Get it? Isn't that hilarious?"

3. Jake, excitedly: "Mom! I caught a fly, ripped off its wings, ripped off a couple legs, put it in a plastic bag, and stuck it on the fridge. When Tyler wakes up, I'm going to get my magnifying glass, take it outside, and try to burn it!"


5. Alyssa, about a small Lego creation: "Praise the Lord Jacob found it!"

6. Zac: "Tyler is randomly being mean!"
Jake: "Do you know what random means?"
Zac: "No."

7. Alyssa, during church: "Mom! Zac's still kicking me!"
Me, sternly: "Stop kicking her."
Zac, feigning innocence: "Mom, I wasn't! {smiling} My feet were.

8. Listening to Jake and Alyssa arguing about whether dreams are in color of black & white.

9. After Leighton had been gone all day on Saturday (a day he's normally home) Alyssa proclaimed that she was "daddy-sick," like homesick, but missing her daddy.

10. Alyssa: "Which one is it?"
Me: "I don't know."
Alyssa: "Well, I need to know. Jake and I bet about it. Whoever wins the bet gets to say 'I told you so.' Since we're not allowed to bet for things, that's all we can do."

11. Alyssa: "My arm is tired from stirring."
Zac: "Mine's not tired. You can use my arm."

What made you Smile tonight?
