Funnies for the Record

I have been keeping a list in my phone of funny things my girls do and say. Things that I know I will forget about and want a record of. (I'm writing this also to encourage my sister to write down things like her son peeing on the front porch or the other son peeing in a cup while standing next to the toilet. I'm not sure about my desire to have boys now.)

Leland says the word shark when it should be sharp. She sometimes uses shark instead of cut too. It cracks me up. She will say "Your knife is shark and it might shark me." It makes me laugh and I don't correct her because I love it so much.

A few weeks ago we went to a pancake breakfast fundraiser at Applebee's. Now every time we pass the restaurant Lucy will yell, "Apple! Apple!" She loves the word apple right now, every fruit is an apple to her.

Lucy is into finding things that match. While at Aunt Barbara's they read an ABC book. When I read it to her the day we picked her up, she would go get things from around the house that matched the pictures in the book. She got the chicken farm animal to match H is for hen and even went to the fridge to pull out the L is for Lemon. She made the amazing discovery yesterday at the Library that her Ariel sticker matched Ariel on her socks. She was very excited.

To preface the next story: Leland's middle name is Joy, Lucy's is Maydene.
When Leland is wrapped up in a towel after a bath Chuck will call her his "Bundle of Joy". Well the other night he was carrying Lucy wrapped in a towel and called her his "Bundle of Joy". Leland says, "No Dad, she's your Bundle of Maydene!"

When I ask, "Who wants a snack?," "Do you want some milk?," or "Who wants to go outside?" Lucy's response is always "I Do!" while raising her hand in the air.

Leland and Lucy love to dance together. They will spin around in circles until they are dizzy and fall over. It's pretty hilarious to watch.

The pictures are from our recent "treasure hunt". We walked on the trail by our house and down our street to find treasures to put in our buckets. I also put Lucy's hair in a ponytail. It made her look so grownup.


  1. Those are some darling girls! I knew a friend who's daughter used to say Merry Christmas Hannah instead of Eve. She was a little jealous of her sister Eve getting all the attention.

  2. So I haven't commented in forever... sorry!

    These 2 little girls are precious and we miss them so much. I love all the funny things they are saying and doing, especially Leland's "bundle of Maydene" and Lucy getting a lemon out of the fridge to match the picture.

    I also LOVE Lucy's new hair do. Now we just need to put a really BIG bow in there. I bet Mitzi can make one for you!

  3. The "shark" bit is hilarious!!!! It made me laugh out loud!

  4. Goodness... I miss those girls SO much! Thank you for having Leland call me to sing. It was so perfect and such a surprise. We miss those girls a LOT! Thanks for the post about them to show us how they are growing.

  5. She is so funny calling it shark! I love it! And Lucy saying I do! She is so big! I miss them so much! I can't wait to see you guys!
