Kid Stuff ~ The Cute & the Messy

The Cute
My sisters have been posting some old pictures on FB recently.  (I'm still not on FB, but Dave is.  He told me about it, and I promptly hijacked his account to see the pic's.)  I love this one.  I think I'm about 8 or 9 here, wearing my favorite lavender dress.  We were in Anaheim, CA visiting my Dad's sister and family.  We did Disneyland and visited my grandparents--both close by.  I have two boy cousins about my age, so it was fun playing with them, too.

I love Matt's little suit and Melody's self-cut bangs.
She cuts hair for a living now. (She's gotten way better.)

The Messy
This is what happened one evening while I was making dinner.


I didn't get one of Sam's comments on video, but I'll tell you it here.  First let me say, he and Lydia have been asking for ways that they can earn extra money.  (They get a paltry allowance.)  I've told them that when they do a job they don't normally do--i.e. it's Mom's or Dad's usual chore--then they can earn some extra cash.  So, as we were finishing up:

Samuel (excited):  So Mom, can we get some extra money for...wait...nevermind.  (Not-so-excited) It doesn't count if we make the mess ourselves, does it?

He's quick!


  1. Wow, that picture of you looks just like Lydia, only with a different hair color.

    1. I guess she does. I never really though so before. She has more almond-shaped eyes like my brother, but yeah...I can see it. = )
