You've got to laugh! Reading my journal I came across some funny things my kids have done over the past years and I'm so thankful I wrote them down because it is sooooo important to laugh! Here are just a few:
Dec. 17, 2006
Hayden has some funny new things… she loves Dora the Explorer. Dora has a little friend named Boots, but Hayden calls him Boobs. We try to say his name correctly for her but for the past two weeks it has been Boobs.

Hayden is also doing well. She is a hoot. She makes me laugh all day long. She says the funniest things. When I change the boys’ diapers I sometimes say, “Holy crap”. Not good, but I say it. Anyway, the other day Joey was changing one of the boys and she came in to the room saying, “Holy crap.”

We are attempting to get her to go to the bathroom in the potty. She went in her diaper (even though we ask her to go in the potty) so Joey went to change her. He said, “Hayden, you need to go potty in the toilet.” And she said, “I need your help.” And Joey said, “What do you need me to do.” And she said, “I need you to change your attitude.” How funny is that!

Hayden said the funniest thing tonight during Family Home Evening. We were talking about the prophet and we asked her who the new prophet was and she said, “President Monson.” We said, “Good, now who was the prophet.” She said, “President Hinckley.” We asked, “What happened to President Hinckley?” and she said, “He turned into President Monson.” We cracked up. It was so cute!

Poor Lincoln. He has been very confused lately. He thinks his name is Spencer. We ask him who everyone's name is in our family and he gets everyone right but he calls himself, "Penth" which is Lincolnese for Spencer. It doesn't end there, both boys have little stuffed animals they got while in the NICU after they were born. They sleep with them every night. Lincoln has a rhinoceros name "Lyle" and Spencer has giraffe named"Gus" but lately Lincoln thinks his rhino is named "Gus". Maybe "Spencer" and "Gus" are just easier to say...who knows!!!

After Primary, Hayden reminded Joey and me that she gave the scripture and prayer and we asked her how it went. She said, "Well, I didn't pick my nose." Too cute!

Spencer's prayer from last night:
"Dear Heavenly Father, We grateful for our families, grateful for Lincoln, grateful for Jude, grateful for Hayden and Mommy and Daddy, grateful for the fan, grateful for Horton, grateful for Mickey, grateful for Yerdle, grateful for the basketball hoop, grateful for the door, grateful for Jude's door, grateful for Mama's and Dada's door, grateful for three doors, grateful for that, grateful for those..." and it went on and on and on and on! It ended with, "and Lincoln has his eyes open and I want to sleep with that (pointing at something in his toy bin)".

I sang “The Spirit of God” the other night to Lincoln and afterwards he said, “Mom, I shout for Jesus.” I didn’t get it then thought, “Oh, from the song.” It was cute!

Be still my heart! Lincoln stubbed his toe and was crying at the kitchen table while I was making dinner. Spencer came in to check on him and said, "Lincoln, are you okay?" Lincoln said, "No, my toe really hurts." Spencer said, "I will make it better, do you want me to tickle it or kiss it?" Pure sweetness from a not so sweet little boy!
September 29, 2011
Spencer said the funniest thing last night. I was asking him about how preschool is going and he said, “No one plays with me.” I said, “Oh, well why don’t you go find Lincoln and play with him?” Spencer responded by saying, “I seek after Lincoln but he doesn’t seek after me.” So dang cute!!!!

Jude has not been feeling well the past week and I finally took him to the doctor yesterday. He has an ear infection and got started on antibiotics yesterday. He woke up much happier this morning so I told him to go tell Daddy Jude was back. He walked into our bedroom, found Joey, turned around and pointed to his back...Jude's back! I just started laughing:) So just so you know Jude's back...take it however you want!

Today we asked the twins what they wanted to be when they grow-up. Lincoln said, "I want to be a rugby player" and Spencer said, "I want to be a hamster." Hmmmmm, those are two very different things!

When Jude gets mad at one of us (and especially Daddy), he yells, "Go time-out, DAAAAAAD!" he means it!
