Choobies Gets the Giggles

We were at the table eating dinner, and I asked Raleigh how her Primary class went with her new teacher. She said, "Good - Barbara came in and talked about . . . ."

Choobies said, "Barbara?! Like Barbara-que sauce?!" in her luscious little lisp (lithp). Then she started laughing and laughing at herself, and we laughed with her at her clever little joke.

Then we took tons of pictures of our Choobie-Love making funny jokes and being oh-so-cute:

It didn't end with dinner. Afterwards, she kept on going:

Funny girl!

Here she is, cleaning the bathroom as a "consequence." She loved it so much, she was hoping to get in trouble so that she would have to do it again!

Love you, Choobies!

Summer Snippets

Random pictures from our hectic summer in no particular order:

Our new front door. Sorry, no house pics! It's only been a few months, but we are still getting settled. We love our new place, though.

Our little sushi pie back in May.

Miss Middle, wishing these were real.

The girls love having a fun next-door neighbor friend who is literally in our own backyard! Priscilla is a cute and fun new friend!

Madeline wrote and illustrated a special book in 1st grade for her "Young Authors" project. She wrote a story about a fun experience she shared with Jess and Raleigh in Virginia Beach a couple of summers ago titled, "The Silly Song." In the first page of her book, she dedicated her story to Jess and Dannii "because they are so nice to me," and she gave it to them at the lake while they were here visiting us from Thailand.

My dad was too seasick to board the boat, so we left him on shore to read a stack of Alabama Visitors Center brochures we picked up for him to read.

Raleigh wouldn't give me "five," but she LOVED tubing this year! We haven't been out on the boat since last year, and the girls loved it just as much this time around.

This is the only "cousin shot" we have from our summer visitors - Gunnar and Henry, and Henry is missing from this picture! We should've had the camera out more, but we were too busy shuffling babies around.

Our Lil' Pudgie Wudgie

Pardon the pixels . . . just sit back and enjoy our little pudge.

And don't be afraid of her chompers, but beware: our little ankle-biter really does bite!
