More Funny Conversations:

Speaking of watching The Sound of Music, towards the end, when the nuns said they'd sinned and showed the car parts they'd sabotaged from the Nazis, Noah said, "Hey, nobody's perfect. Even you, ugly old nun."

Paul: "Hey Scott, who was the director of Tron?"
Noah: "Dunder Mifflin."

The other night, Hannah kept saying, "Mom... Mom... Mom..." when I was in the middle of something. Paul chimed in with an English accent, "As you can see, THIS exhibit is being ignored by her mother."

I recently told Ashton (our 11 year old juvenile diabetic) that I saw a really pretty girl with an insulin pump at the pool. He solemnly held up his hand and said, "High five." LOL

It's hard to tell in this sneaky cell phone photo, but the figure kneeling in worship at the bottom of the projector screen has his fingers spread apart. While in church yesterday, Noah whispered, "Is is really appropriate for that guy to have jazz hands?"

Accurate Observation

Saturday was a scorching day in Tucson, so the kids and I decided to watch the new blu-ray release of The Sound of Music. When the scene below appeared, Paul said, "Well, she doesn't have anyone to toss THAT thing to."

Speaking of Paul...

Paul was carrying around a backpack the other day, so I asked what he had in there. He said, "All of my special things. Things I want to keep close to me at all times." I decided to take a look that night after he went to bed. The contents were: his two favorite video games, his Kingdom Hearts keyblade chain, his favorite Harry Potter book, his Harry Potter wand, and his pocket Bible from when he was a baby. Oh yeah, and a giant rubber mallet. ??? The other night, Paul asked if he could play on my computer. We have strict parental settings in place, so I told him sure. I peeked in on him after about a half hour, and I found him doing "research" on the internet. In the search bar, he had typed in, "What are the 2 new elements officially added to the periodic table?" That's my boy.

Groceries in Bulk

I took half of the kids swimming a couple of weeks ago, and we decided to go to Costco on the way home. While checking out in line, Paul told the cashier, "We have six kids in our family." Noah quickly chimed in (with total seriousness and concern), "The other three aren't here right now. It's not that they're invisible."

We ended up filling three carts. Notice Noah's rear end hanging over the backseat as we loaded up. This is very typical!

Catching Up

It's been awhile since I've posted, and that's not because I haven't had anything to post about! I try to jot down our randomness as it happens. Here is a summary for your entertainment!

We decided to go out for dinner the other night, and Paul asked me the following three random questions in a matter of two minutes: What is the formula for radioactivity? Why is platinum so expensive? If water is H2O, would H3O be an unstable molecule?

I noticed Noah running back and forth across the kitchen with his eyes closed. When I questioned him, he said, "If you close your eyes and run very quickly, it feels like you're teleporting."

I whacked my ankle against a corner and admittedly shouted a LOUD obscenity. I then heard Noah yell downstairs, "I'll pretend I didn't hear that due to the level of agony you were experiencing."

Paul (looking at a cave painting on History Channel): "Eww. Those people just walked around naked?" Ashton: "No, they were Native Americans, which means they wore butt flaps."

Hannah ripped off a piece of skin that she had scraped earlier that day. She ran towards Paul with it, and he said, "Don't chase me with your carnage!!!"

Hannah: "What's an apparition?" Paul: "It comes from the word APPEAR. It's a noun for something that APPEARS. Think about it."

With wildfires burning in Arizona, fire has been a common subject of discussion amongst the kids. The other night Paul said, "You know, if you want to make a smokeless fire, all you need to do is burn dried animal droppings. You heard me. DRIED ANIMAL DROPPINGS."
