kids say the darndest things, toy story 3 edition

-my kids continue to say the most hilarious thing.  we recently watched toy story 3 on dvd, and when it was over, my 3-year old was playing with his toys singing one line over and over again ad infinitum.  but it wasn't "you've got a friend in me."  nope.  instead it was, "you've got the ham in me." 

that's right.  you've got the ham in me.  in his best randy newman voice.  and then the other day it somehow morphed into "you've got the humble ham in me."  i don't know how the ham got be so humble, but what i do know is that i might be in the middle of a pastoral counseling session and my brain will suddenly start singing to itself, "you've got the humble ham in me," as if this was perfectly normal.  this is how kids turn your brains to mush so that they can take advantage of you when they are teenagers. 

-jackson, on the other hand, who is now 6, doesn't say as many cute things anymore, choosing instead to debate his favorite theory for dinosaur extinction.  he did, however, coin a new expression in our home recently.  we let him play his nintendo dsi for only a half hour on weekdays, and then more on the weekends.  well, last weekend he got to play the dsi for an extended time, and then watch toy story 3 on top of it.  that night when we were praying and telling God what we are thankful for, Jackson said, "i'm thankful for all the screen i got today."  so now we gauge how much 'screen' we're getting each day. 

-back to toy story.  when we decided to go to toys-r-us on monday so jack could spend some of his birthday money, we had said that we would go to the toy store.  cade was running around excitedly proclaiming that we were going to the 'toy story 3!' 

-and finally, we've gone through several cases of kleenex this winter, unloading pounds of snot into their soft caress.  but in the process we have apparently confused caedmon as to the proper name for said device.  is it a kleenex?  is it a tissue?  well, if you're cade this is an easy problem to fix.  he just started calling them kleenissues.  and now we all have.  for example, at the end of toy story 3, i was bawling my eyes out, and asked cade to get me a kleenissue.  he carried one to me, all the while singing, "you've got the ham in me!"

love it.

my boys and I went outside to play in the 'no and build a 'noman. for some reason, Dominic drops the "s" at the beginning of words and it's still so cute.

love it!

We call that Molly ears (based on one of the youth - her name is Molly) and she always hears the wrong things... very amusing.

There's a David Crowder song where he sings, "All this for a King" and I always hear "Elvis is the King". Calling Dr. Freud...

I'm going to think about humble hams instead.

State College to Birmingham

 as some of you know, i have been working towards a goal i set at the beginning of 2020 of running 1000 miles in one calendar year.  today is the last day of september (what?!?), and so that means the year is 3/4 of the way complete, which means i should be right around the 750 mile marker.  however, i am doing better than that, as my 5 mile run today put me at 847 miles for the year, almost 100 miles ahead of schedule!  i am feeling great, enjoying the journey, and experiencing a real sense of accomplishment as i work towards this goal.   i have also enjoyed these little milestones along the way, just to see how far i've come.  as it turns out, 847 miles from State College (along the roads, not as the crow flies) would have me arriving in Birmingham, AL, right about now!  not too shabby!  only about 150 to go!

bad haircuts (for a laugh)

everybody needs to laugh.  one good way i have found to make that happen is to do a simple google image search for 'bad haircut.'  when you do so, some of the following gems show up.  thankfully, my 9th grade school picture does NOT show up.  otherwise, it would certianly make this list!  please laugh freely and without inhibition.  thank you and have a nice day. 

happy mother's day 2020

twelve years ago i started making a video of our children as a mother's day tribute to their mother, and somehow it became a tradition.  back then, our oldest son was 3 years old, and cute.  now he's 15 and, well, not so cute .  however, we have really come to love this tradition, and the time capsule of sorts that it has become.  we love looking back at each year's video, to see how we've grown and changed, and how our love for Shannon has remained constant. below is this year's video, and if you want to walk with us down memory lane, the other eleven are down there as well.  happy mother's day to all the mom's out make us feel like a million bucks. 2020 2019 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009
