Merry Christmas Eve

We just got back from Grandma and Bucka (Grandpa) Gibsons' after a great night of soup/chili, rolls, veggies, etc., and singing and sharing the story of the birth of the Savior. Of course Max couldn't keep himself from jumping off of the couch, which always gets him in trouble with Bucka. They are trying so hard to remember that Christmas is not all about getting. It's a hard lesson at this age. So...I'm sitting here waiting for Mr. Claus to get home so we can get busy with the big set-up.

Max learning to decipher gender

This morning Max was looking at our dog Jack and asked, "How do you tell if it's a girl dog?" I told him it's the same way you tell with people. He then asked if the way you could tell a boy dog was the same as you could tell with humans. I said, "what does a boy have that a girl doesn't?" After a long pause, he replied, "A shotgun." I don't know what you call it in your house, but he's referring to his plastic, toy shotgun, not anything else. So, then i said, what do boys have on their bodies that girls don't? and he said, "Boy clothes." We just left it at that.

Bryn's music selections

Bryn started preschool yesterday!!! When her teacher came out for car-line, she said that she had been working with Bryn looking at different material and there was one with daisies. The conversation went as follows:
Ms. Edith: These are daisies.
Bryn: I like Daisy Dukes.
Ms. Edith: Do you know what Daisy Dukes are?
Bryn: Daisy Dukes with bikinis on top.

Gotta love that kid!

why i can't kill max

Max and Bryn decided to make some mud and play in it...totally fine with me as long as it stays outside. then, max completely covered bryn (should have taken pictures) from head to foot, including her face, in mud. still no huge problem until i saw that they got a bunch on the back patio and sliding glass door. i was pretty upset and max started crying and said, "you can't kill me, cuz then you won't have a boy". i decided to keep him.

Max's amazing language acquisition

Max got some great new white tube socks with a black stripe on the top and FILA on the back of the socks. He said, "Do you know what FILA means? It's another word in Spanish for black."
