Funnies

Oh, I'm just soooo behind on blogging.  In an effort to make myself feel less guilty about this, especially since it is Hannah's first year, here are some funnies:

During the Thanksgiving season, we are discussing eating the turkey.  Abigail is surprised that we'd be eating turkey.  This must be a shock to her since we eat it every Thanksgiving without fail.
Abby: "No!  We don't eat animals." (Huh?) "If we eat them, they can't have babies anymore!"
Isabelle: "Will we drink their blood?"

Mama: "Isabelly, why don't you say 'Happy Birthday' to Tanya today?"
Isabelle: "I only talk to her on Wednesdays."  

Isabelle eating a banana in its peel: "Mama, I can't eat the rest of the banana.  I don't eat stumps."

Isabelle sipping her chocolate milk: "Mama, did you know that chocolate milk tastes like bunny poop?"                           (No, I didn't.  I also didn't know you have tasted bunny poop before since you apparently know it tastes like chocolate milk....)

Mama: "Isabelly!  You are too cute!  I want to eat you!"
Isabelle: "No!"
Mama: "Why not?"
Isabelle with a worried look on her face: "Because you are a mommy and they eat lunch."

Mama giving Isabelle medicine which she is drinking very slowly.
Mama; "Drink the whole thing at once."
Isabelle: "Sometimes I have to breathe!"

It's hard to be so funny once you are past that special age.  Nathan however still manages me to laugh a lot.  I wish I could show you his latest invention, his Leprechaun skip.  In the meantime, this will have to do:

Nathan on why his Leprechaun skip is so funny: "It's because I'm such a cute pie."

Nathan, having had a broken finger for over a week: "Why does my finger hurt?"                       (Hmmmmm, let me think of why....)
