Once again, out of the mouth of Gabe



Hey mom?" (thanks to his big brothers, this is how every new sentence starts)

-Yes?

"We are not supposed to drink Al-toe-hall, right mom?"

-Yes, that's right, we're not supposed to drink alcohol, it is very bad for us.

"Yep, and if people see that you are drinking alcohol they might think you are like a pirate or a skeleton, right mom?"

-Hmm, maybe!

"Yeah, but it's okay to dress UP like a pirate, but just not if you're going to the Temple, right mom?"

-Yes, it would not be a good idea to dress up like a pirate to go to the Temple. How did you get so smart?

"Bee-tuz."

"Mom?"

Yeah?

"I have a booger in my eye, can you get it?"

Ah, the randomness that comes from this little boy constantly astounds me. Another one of our favorite "Gabe-isms" is his song that combines "I.AM.IRON.MAN" (black sabbath) with "I am a child of God" he starts out with the Iron man and ends with the Child of God. Seriously, WHERE did he come from?! He is such a fun, and funny little kid. We love you "super Dabe!" (his favorite nickname for himself - and also appropriately the name for his Mii character)

Their little minds just go a mile a minute. That was adorable. You amaze me at how you can write their words and I can just hear them saying the phrase. So adorable.

Hey Melanie, the email I have for you didn't work, so here's what I wrote...
I didn't do 2 layers of paint on the Nerd Herd shirt, except for the red on the circle. I painted with a little white first so the red would be more vibrant. I just used the cut outs of the little guy to put back over the black, then painted the white around it. I'm glad you liked it so. And, you can comment any time on my blog, silly. :)
