Quotable Lu 2

Daddy walks in the door for lunch today...

Daddy: "Hey Lucy, can I have a big hug?!"
Lucy (pushing a shopping cart and toting no less than five bags full of various items):
" I can't right now... I'm full of hands."
Daddy: You mean your hands are full?" :)
Lucy: Oh, yes.


Our friend Sloppy Joe

Mommy likes to freeze big batches of food in advance b/c cooking and cleaning up aren't her favorite things to do every evening. Sometimes she makes a months worth of a recipe before we ever even try it (some day she'll learn). A while back she decided she loved Sloppy Joes. Into the freezer goes a months worth.

1st Sloppy Joe Dinner :
Me and Henry work on finishing our first plate at each meal until dinner the next night, with a few brief moments of gagging (it apparently isn't our favorite)

a week passes...

2nd Sloppy Joe Dinner, renamed "Irish Joes":
It's St. Patricks day... Mommy defrosts a batch, but this time makes green rolls to go with it. Me and Henry gobble it up and go for seconds!

a week or so passes....

3rd Sloppy Joe Dinner:
(Daddy's out of town)
Mommy: "Tonight we're having Irish Joes again"
Me and Henry: "Yaaayyy!
Mommy: "I don't have any green buns tonight though so we'll just use plain buns, ok?"
Me and Henry: "ok, Yaayy Irish Joes!! (Then we gobble it up and go for seconds)

another week or so later...

4th Sloppy Joe Dinner:
Daddy makes dinner and announces: "Let's eat... it's Sloppy Joes for dinner tonight!" (Oh no, he let the S word slip!)

an hour passes at the table (or what it felt like at least)

Daddy: What's wrong, I thought you all loved Sloppy Joes?
Lucy: No Daddy, We love IRISH Joes.

5th Sloppy Joe dinner...
We'll see how it goes tonight- Daddy's learned his lesson, though, so we should be able to finish off the Freezer Joes as long as He specifies their nationality first!


Our friends came to see us this weekend!! Mr. Chris came all the way from NC to play with us for a few days... and Mr. Brandon and Mrs. Alaina came from Seattle to work on the bike trails but we got to play with them some too! Despite Mrs. Alaina being slightly lactose intolerant, we've shared a few great ice cream moments over the years:

Flashback to Nov. 2006:

Present day, May 2009:

Henry in his "cowboy" shirt... anything plaid is "cowboy" to him these days... and that's all he ever wants to wear.
