Funny Things That a Child says..

Well my precious nephew Miles is quite the character. He just turned 8, and let's just say he act like a 15 year old. I would guess that is partially due to the fact that he lived with me and my mom for 4 years and that resulted of him hanging out with 18 year olds all the time.

So he went to the doctor today for a tonsil check because he is getting them out next week. The nurse was asking him questions and he was answering them.. a little too liberally. One question went as follows:

Nurse: (walks in holding a cup) Now have you ever peed in a cup before?
Miles: Well... ya.
Nurse: Oh really?
Miles: Ya one time on a vacation we had to stop on the side of the road because there wasn't anywhere to stop so I just peed in the cup.

HA!! I love this child. I love the unplanned and sporadic thoughts that enter their minds. I love the mental lapse and lack of processing before speaking. Kids are great.

On This Lovely Day...

I had such a GREAT day yesterday!! I did something I would have never thought I would have... but I had a blast!! My dear friend Brittainy called me and asked me to go play putt putt. I sure do love putt putt. But.... we had an added bonus. Well I guess you could say we had 9 added bonuses! The missionaries came with us! And we can't forget good ol' Kirstie Teale! The Elders and Sisters are so much fun! We had such a good time, despite the 90 degree weather and 100% humidity!
Elder Taylor, Elder Gardener, and Elder... Oops I forgot his name!

Elder Mills and Elder Fisher

Sister Roberts! (and Yes, her first name is Julia)

Sister St. Clair! Such a Great soul! I LOVE HER!

and the ever famous KT!

A Day in May

Suspense is one of those things that you hate to love and love to hate. Well, at least it is for me. The thrill of a movie you are watching that isn't quite SCARY but it is just thrilling enough to make the hair stand up on your arms and your teeth clench together.

Suspense happened today.
Picture this::
Greens, Yellows, Oranges, and Reds cover the screen.
Obnoxious beeping sounds continually sounding.
Pounding heart.
A man's voice coming from the TV "Sebastian county is in a super cell."
Blackness takes over.
Streaks of lightening fill the sky.
Booming and Banging take over the dark sky.
Tornado warning.
Will the sirens sound? Will we run to the neighborhood tornado shelter?

5 things to guarantee you are in Oklahoma...

If you are ever wondering where you are in the USA.... use this checklist. If all 5 boxes are checked, it is a 100% guarantee you are the horrid state of Oklahoma.

  • People are passing in the right lane of the interstate.
  • Every spoken sentence ends with a preposition.
  • An Indian Casino is at every exit.
  • Within a 25 mile stretch and at 4 different McDonald's, all the workers have 5 teeth... total.
  • You are the in parking lot of a McDonald's and you look in the Subway parking lot across the street and 3 women have a baby goat in a dog kennel in the back of their truck.

If you find yourself here, run. And run fast. And far.
