Things That Make Me Smile 11/14/14

Jake (8½), Alyssa (6½), Zac (5), Tyler (2½)

Happy Friday! This past weekend, Leighton had a birthday and we celebrated Jake's and Zac's birthdays with a party. The kids made sure we set up the chocolate fountain and had plenty of goodies to go along with it. And, of course, our house was over taken with new Lego sets. There were definitely a lot of Smiles.

1. Me: "Why are those clothes shoved in the corner of your room?"
Alyssa: "I put them there for safe keeping."

2. Jake, talking about a LEGO box: "It says not to shoot the missiles at someone's face. It has a picture of a guy like this {makes face}.
Me: "Right, so in other words, don't shoot it at your brothers or sister."
Jake: "Well, not at their face anyway."

3. Zac: "I'm as wise as a bird."

4. Watching the little boys wrestle and laugh.

5. Jake: "You should make arrangements with Gramma to have us stay there so you and Dad can have a break from all of us."
Me: "Oh, you think so?"
Jake: "Yeah, how about you leave us there Friday?"

6. Jake: "In 10 years, I'll be almost 19."

7. Alyssa: "Mom! Jake's not playing fair! I'm cheating for Zac and Jake is helping him, too!"

8. Tyler: "I want more choo-choo trains, downstairs!"
Me: "There are no more trains downstairs. I already brought them all up."
Tyler: "Yes, downstairs! There are plenty! Plenty!"

9. I hit 31 weeks of pregnancy. Down to single digits!

10. Alyssa: "Pink in my favorite color, but purple is my emergency favorite color."

11. Alyssa: "Thirty-one is old, guys."
Me: "You do realize that both your parents are 32, right?"
Alyssa: "Mhhmm."

12. Me: "Are you going to be a good boy in your class tonight?"
Tyler: "Ummmmm . . . mmmm . . . mmmmmm . . . uummm . . . huh?"

13. Alyssa, listening to the southerners singing with a twang at our church: "Mommy, are they like cowboys or something?"
