Bath time is fun time

If you're not LDS, this won't be as funny to you, but nonetheless, this is what I just overheard from Samantha while she was bathing with Lucy:
"Brothers and Sisters.
"Ladies and Gentlemen.
"I would like to excuse the shower curtain for being in the way.
"I would also like to announce that bath time is fun time."

Sauce and Cakes

Well, the Thornes won 3-2. Your votes can still count if you send in checks or golden nuggets.

Terry's let the win go to his head. He's been holding shiny things over his head and is refusing to wear pants.

A few things over the last few weeks:

Samantha turned 5. She's still more attractive then everybody else's kids, but now we say "pretty" instead of "cute."

Lucy had courageous and ultimately victorious battle with pink eye. Wiping snot out 3-year-old tear ducts should be an Olympic sport.

Nora now has pink eye. We've felt bad enough for her that she's been aloud to exist in the buff. Consequences be damned.
My beautiful, 31-year-old wife also has pink eye. Yes, 31. That's what I said. She was 30 YESTERDAY, people. Seriously, get a calendar. Dummies.

My folks came over for a weekend and played. We thought we'd take the opportunity to have an online contest to see which set of grandparents is cuter.
So, if you think Wendell & Deanna are cuter, make a comment or send five dollars to our address.

If you'd like to vote for Terry & Sue, make a comment or email us with your credit card number(s).

Here's three little girls, who are not in the contest, as they haven't had children who have had children.

This is how Nora feels now that they're gone.

Sam had a pre-birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese.
Really. Crappy. Pizza.

Grumpa Wendell is starting to resemble the knotted redbud tree, no? Both excellent perches.

These two pictures kinda make it look like our daughters have been hanging out at Hogwarts.


Happy 4th, everybody.

Tubes and Vampires

Becky had her sisters over last night to watch the Twilight movies in preparation for the 3rd installment's release this weekend. That meant that the husband and the little girls who don't yet appreciate smoldering had to be out of the house. We went to McDonalds, where nary a sparkly, J-Crew-wearing vampire doth go.

Then we rocked out at ToysRUs for a few minutes before they closed.
It turns out that the ladies only managed to watch the first movie, which is interesting because watching the first movie is like having a pitchfork colonoscopy.

This is a clever edit that Jeremy and Megan had posted on their blog.
