little son answers the hard questions

Last night The Wife put Little to bed. He told her stories as he likes to do and she asked him questions to clarify things. She asked all kinds of questions about the main character (a little baby) and then came:

"What's her favorite day?"

"What's her favorite month?"

"What's her favorite season?"
"Cayenne pepper."

Little Son, you're too silly.

i work from home

The other Friday The Wife had Friend in town to visit. To do my part to aide in their amusement I worked from home and watched the boys while they went on an adventure...

Why the heck do bus drivers turn on the heater?! The body heat is E. NUFF.

Anyway, so we had some good times. Started the day with some Krispies. Then played Legos the rest of the day (literally). Big Son built this crocodile (using instructions and a tiny help from me--I checked his work).

Then on Sunday before taking Friend to airport, we had a picnic at the falls--yes, we ditched second and third hours of church :<.

It seems like yesterday that he was 31 months! And he still makes me smile:

Tonight we had pork tenderloin for dinner. During the meal Big Son exclaimed, "I LOVE PORK TENDER LION!!"


During FHE tonight I asked the Sons if they knew what the four food groups were. Little Son raised his hand and said "I DO! I DO!!" I asked him to answer and he responded: "DESSERT!!!!"


The Wife took the Sons to the park today and they got to talking about some serious stuff (this is all paraphrased in my own words):

"Your spirit is inside your body," said Big.
"It is. Can you see it?" asked The Wife.
"No, it's just inside so you can't see it," responded Big.
"You're right. It's not something you can touch like you can touch your body. But it's real and it's really inside of you," The Wife expounded.

Quite a bit later as they were walking in the grass Big Son exclaimed while groping his neck, "I can't feel my spirit in my belly, BUT I CAN FEEL IT IN MY NECK!!"

me and big son are cooking up some goodness

Tonight Big Son and I decided to baste our brains with hot creative juices. We put on our thinking aprons and took some ideas to the cutting board. We whisked some things together and seasoned to our liking. Lastly we put our concoctions into our ovens to warm up a little. We can't wait to see the results.

And I'm sure you can't either. Unfortunately the recipe is top secret right now.

(If you hadn't guessed we're working on something that deals with cooking. Stay tuned.)

i love fall

Every morning when I leave for work I take a large whiff of the brisk autumn air. It is delicious! But wait, it isn't fall yet. Well here in Washington it has felt like fall ever since I got here back in June. It's absolutely marvelous. Each time I breathe that cool autumnesque air it reminds me of one of my greatest childhood memories...

When I was a kid back in the early 90's I was in love with video games. The Super Nintendo was the latest and greatest shiznat back then and I wanted it BADLY! I was out of school from Thanksgiving until after New Years (it was the best) and so I would beg my mom to take me to Target so that I could sit and play their demo SNES for hours and hours. I'd sit there and play Super Mario World and lust after the thing. It was awesome.

That same air that I breathed in those 20+ years ago is the same air I breathe in each morning before work and it makes me giddy inside. Thank you mom. Thank you Mario.
