On one of several bathroom stops during our 7 hour trip yesterday, Mr C and I had the following conversations in the stall in a rather crowded bathroom.
Mr C: Mama, why is your p***s different from mine?
Me, ignoring the snickers outside the stall from other patrons: Because you are a boy and I am a girl and God made us different.
Mr C: You are not a girl. You are a mom.
more snickers....I should also add that the sometimes the boy is a little difficult to understand. Not today - this convo was clear as a bell and a little loud too! It reminded me of the time a potty-training Miss M cheered and clapped for me in a mall bathroom. "Been there!" laughed a voice from stall next door.

Being stuck at home this week (with snow on the ground and freezing temps) has really caused me to slow down and savor the true gift of Christmas. It's a week when I would otherwise be running from here to there like so many other people. Hoping you take some time to enjoy your most precious gift as well - the gift of grace offered by Jesus Christ. Without the pink eye of course!

I blogged about the painted cupcake plates here. I was planning to leave the big ones unpainted, but when I set my table up Friday night, I knew they needed coordinating dots. A glue stick made the perfect sized circle and it only took about 10 minutes to do the entire set. And yes, they were dry by the tea on Saturday.

My dad: Well, I have heard that old people eat cat food sometimes.
Mr C, without any prompting: Does that mean you eat cat food Popa?
Maybe I will catch up on some posts/pictures in the next few days since Mr C flew home with my parents today. It's his first "away" trip and we won't see him again until late Wednesday night when we drive in for Thanksgiving. Even Miss M misses him a little bit already.

Me: I have one word that I think will get you out of the tub quickly.
Miss M: (without missing a beat) Spanking?
Me: No, but I like the way you think!

Go Fish, with our porch ghost and Scooby jack-o-lantern. (Minnie costume purchased at a thrift store after Halloween last year. Go Fish track suit was a hand-me-down from friends. Total spent for both costumes: $15.)

"I already do!" she replied.
Our visitor Gywnn quipped "Where, your jaw?"
Miss M laughed after we explained the joke to her and plans to use on another big talker she knows soon. I love that my girl can enjoy a good joke!
We also looked over at Mr C at one point to find a noodle sticking out of his nose. Really not sure where he gets that from...must be his dad!

"Jason!" he proudly exclaimed.
The look on her face let me know that she was thinking of this Jason...
and not THIS Jason - the guy on the right!
Remember a few weeks back when I showed you this picture of Mr C? Well, that is pretty much his Halloween costume. With a different shirt and the addition of a toy guitar he magically becomes a Go Fish Rockstar. Miss M is still undecided, but we are not making her costume like last year. After all the spray painting I have been doing (projects to be posted soon!) I may just incorporate my claw hand into a costume of sorts!

Aunt J, Cupcake Nana, and Miss M just lounging on the boat.
Mr C and Poppa "driving" the boat. We got a lot of horn honking from his little captain.
Poppa showing Miss M how easy of a ride it can be.
"Wow! Has Daddy been working out lately? I have never seen him so musclely!" commented Miss M. When he was back on the boat, we told him what she had said.
"And why is that funny?" the 6'2" 165 pound guy asked.
I realized when I was posting, that I didn't get a picture of my mom or SIL on the tube, but they took a turn too! And no comments please about how dangerous and reckless it was for me to let Mr C ride without a life vest. We actually didn't realize until later that it didn't get back on him after a lunch break. Other than that, we practiced great water safety!

Miss M is a slow eater. She chews and chews and chews!!! I think she tried to chew ice cream! One night she asks, rather loudly, "What's this stuff on top? Oregano?" (she might watch a little too much Food Network for her age.)
"No," I replied. "It's probably dust." To which her Dad and I both laughed and she replied back, "OK, I totally get that but it is not very funny."
You just keep telling yourself that Miss M! I am charging my camera batteries as we speak so I can share vacation pics, a cheap and easy slate tic-tac-toe board, and hopefully from an outing Miss M and I are taking back in time later today!

Yes...a theme is noted. Beverly Lewis writes a lot of books set in Amish communities and I got hooked on two separate 3 book series. Now maybe I will win a prize from the drawing for all my hard work!
