I hope you aren't planning on sticking around long. I mean- the last few months have been awesome*, but come on, I really want my baby back.

Sunday evening, we went to Josiah and Sarah's place for a bonfire and foshees (foshies?phoeshies?), which are hard to spell, but really fun to make.

How to Make a Really Good Leaf Pile:
1. Find one of your uncles. Ask him to get a rake for you.
2.Make sure you pick out all the leaves, so there aren't any "old leaves" in your super cool leaf pile. Because that wouldn't be any fun at all.
3. Let the big kids help rake, throw, and kick the leaves into a pile. It makes them feel good that you need them.
4.If someone says, "I don't really want to make a leaf pile, " they are lying. No one is too cool for a leaf pile.
5. Discipline is in order.
6.Show them who's boss!
7. No ifs, ands, or... bottoms.
8. Ok, now run and jump.
9. And roll around. You really can't go wrong with this approach. Don't worry about making a mess. You can clean it up later.

There are some deer that frequently graze in the field next to my dad's house.
Ethan calls them Trixie, Dixie and Debbie.
When I leave the house, he feels it's important to remind me to "Watch out for snakes!"
We like the movie 'Betime Stories', and Ethan likes the British guy's accent. He knows he can get a smile out of me by singing "Jumping up and down on the alligata, riding up and down in the elevata!" He says it when he knows he is about to get into trouble,and it invariably works so that I can't be angry with him, the little manipulata.

"By smooth talk and flattery they decieve the minds of naive people." Romans 16:18
It starts with her brother's paci. Soon it will be the car keys and clothes. Mark my words.
