A few little "Strider and Rayna Stories" from the past few months...

A few little "Strider and Rayna Stories" from the past few months...

The other day Rayna was sitting on my lap very sweetly and I looked her in the eyes and said, “You’re beautiful.”  She looked directly back at me and said, “You’re interesting.”  Not quite the compliment I was hoping for!

I overheard Strider and Rayna playing out the Christmas story.  Strider was pretending to be Mary, and he said, “Oh, my water broke!”  Rayna said, “Your water broke??  I don’t know what you are talking about!”

At Strider’s soccer game Rayna heard someone say “Let’s go England!” ( England was the name of his team)  Rayna’s response was to yell:  “Let’s go to the coffee shop!”  Because, really, why would anyone rather go England?

Strider recently told me, “In 100 years, I’ll either be dead – or in a wheelchair.”

When someone asks Rayna a question that she either doesn’t understand, or doesn’t know the answer to, she answers very confidently, “Last morning.”

January has started off well...

January has started off well for us...  We're slowly getting into a new rhythm with the addition of Colsen!


He keeps us all entertained with his sweet voice and constant smile.... The kids and Pete have taken to calling him "Mr. Smiley."  But one time he is NOT happy is when he is forced to wear this shirt:


Last weekend Karen and Sam came to visit.   Sam and Colsen got to meet....  I'm sure they'll be best cousin-buddies in the near future!
