George Moment #23

Watching the LDS children's scripture videos before bed. There's an image of Lehi holding the Liahona.

George: He has a genie!

Moments With Friends #1

Rachel: What's it called when you watch people?
Heather: ...people watching?

Sofia Moment #3

Sofia stands over the vent as it blows out warm air, blowing her hair up along with it.

Sofia [singing]: A whole new world!

I appreciate her use of her environment for an accurate recreation. Bravo!

Maren Moment #3

The kids are watching Chicken Little in the girls' room. The end musical number, "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" sung by the characters, rolls on and the kids are jamming.

Runt [on screen]: Don't go breaking my heart!
Maren: I couldn't if I tried!

This is our two-year-old who is currently in speech therapy because she's just not interested in talking, and yet she randomly belts out an entire line of a song. My mouth dropped to the floor, it was awesome!

George Moment #22

I went to George's class Valentine's Day party on Wednesday and as we were packing up to go home one of George's buddies, Austin, went in for what is apparently their customary hug before heading home. "George, hug," he opened his arms.

George turns around and proceeds to try to kiss him, and no matter how much Austin explains, "No, George, hug," George still was able to sneak in a kiss on the cheek, haha.

At home, when Bradley was home from work, we attempted to discuss with George that we can't just go off and kiss whoever we feel like, we only kiss family for now because it could make other people uncomfortable.

Following the discussion, we attempted a review session.

Bradley: Okay, so George, who do we kiss?
George: Everybody.

Yeah, I don't think he got it.

George Moment #21

Friday afternoon I took the kids on a walk. The girls were in the stroller while George and I walked.

We took our typical path, which takes us out of our cul-de-sac where we turn right and head two cul-de-sacs down before we turn left and head towards a neighbor that raises horses. I let the kids say hi to two of their horses who were out in the coral, standing right next to the fence.

We start walking back and George is walking a little slower than usual. I turn around and tell him to catch up. George is quiet for a moment and stops walking.

George: Why don't we just go and ride the horses already?
Heather: Uh, well, they're not our horses?

Maren Moment #2

Maren is snuggling with Bradley on the couch. Suddenly, she jumps up and runs into the kitchen. Pulling open the long miscellaneous drawer, she grabs some foot cream before running back to the couch where Bradley is. Maren climbs up on the arm of the couch by Bradley's feet and proceeds to put the foot cream on them.

And then we died from the cuteness. The end. But seriously, where did she suddenly get that idea, and why she know where the foot cream was in the first place? And how did she even know it was foot cream in the first place?!

Maren is a wizard.

George Moment #20

George rushes out of the play room with a giant sword.

George: TRAITOR, Dad!
Bradley: That lightsaber, it belongs to me!
George: Come and get it.

The most spur-of-the-moment The Force Awakens reenactment ever. I was dying, Bradley knew exactly was scene George was referring to from one word, it was amazing, haha.
