So Many Things

Life moves so quickly.

I am really not good at documenting things, and I always regret it.  I often look back in my blog posts to see when a certain child did this or that or when a certain event happened.  I am planning on printing out parts of my blog, and so I am trying to make a conscious effort to document the things that need to be documented.

I think it would be fun to write out each child's birth stories for sure, and I am toying with writing out Noah's and my love story.  Next week I am planning to attempt to spend no money, and I think I will blog about that experience.  But today?  Today I am going to catch up on "Quote of the Days".  I have posted most of these on facebook, but here they are for those of you who are not on facebook:

---
Lincoln put Everyn's pacifier back in her mouth.  I said to Everyn, "you should thank Lincoln for giving you your pacifier back".  Lincoln looks up and me and says, "Mom, you know she can't say that.  She has her pacifier in her mouth!"  Yep, Linc, that is the reason...

---
Berean really likes Tarzan and Jane.  Everyn was laying on my lap one day and Berean came up and pushed her chest up against Everyn's head and said "heart"- just like when Tarzan and Jane took turns listening to each other's hearts.

---
Deacon spends a lot of time talking to Everyn.  One day I heard him say, "why do you like me so much, Everyn?  I didn't exactly give birth to you."

---
Lincoln: "Deacon, can this bug fly?"
Deacon: "It used to be able to.  Now it is dead."
Lincoln: "Do you think it flew into our house and than we whacked it?"
Deacon: "maybe"

---
Lincoln is convinced he wants a Blackberry.  He just hasn't quite decided what kind.  Roman wants a phone with a key pad that pulls out.

---
We are reading Little House on the Praire.  I asked the boys if they would like to ride west in a covered wagon (my sisters and I would have jumped at the chance!).  Roman said, "no way" (he doesn't like long trips). Deacon said, "no...well, maybe it would be ok if I had my DSI XL (nintendo)".  Poor Laura and Mary, they didn't even have a cassette player, much less a dvd player or a personal gaming system.

---
Deacon: "If we went to McDonalds more often we would have a lot more worthless toys."

---
Deacon attempting to use the word "ravel" as in opposite of "unravel".  It didn't quite work.

---
Lincoln is talking away now, all the time.  When we want to tell him to please be quiet, we try to remind ourselves of how much money we paid to get him to talk.  And we are happy that he is talking.  Right now, though he makes his guys talk to each other, even if he is playing alone.  He also is our best movie/book/cd quoter.  The boy has his favorite "lines" and he uses them often.

---
This week I was complaining about pencil sharpeners.  We just use handheld ones and they just don't work well, or they quit working or the pencils don't fit in them properly.  Maybe I expect too much from a product that costs 99 cents.  Deacon asked me if I thought that it was a situation in which the people making the pencil sharpeners KNEW that they were bad, but were just trying to get my money and giving me a faulty product on purpose.  I clarified, asking him if he was wondering if it was a big scam.  He did.  His father agrees.  (note: the boys just finished listening to The Green Ring Conspiracy so they are totally up on counterfeit rings and all kinds of scams).

Lincoln and I are soooo much alike! I think mom and dad wished that I never learned how to talk too...I guess they didn't pay for me to be able to talk...just took me to the public school...

I think I had a sharpener induced rant or two this week as well.
