they said it
We are thoroughly enjoying a week of rest, play, and family time at Jon's parents' house in Michigan. Nate and Dexter have quite an audience of grandparents, aunts, and uncles and they have not disappointed!
[Upon coming upstairs, directed toward Grandpa]
Dexter (loudly): Is anyone looking for a grandson?
[Nate got a Nerf gun from Aunt Keri and Uncle CJ. He was playing with it downstairs as we were about to gather the whole family together to sing Christmas carols.]
Jon: Nate, come upstairs - it's time to sing some songs about peace on earth.
Nate: Peace on earth? OK, I'll put my gun down.
[Referring to the pig-in-a-blanket that Dexter was trying to eat with a spoon]
Me: Dexter, you have to use your hands to eat that.
Dexter: It's too hot! Mommy, will you roll it up and pour soup on it?
I have no idea where my kids get this stuff, but it does provide good, cheap entertainment!
