I Stand Corrected

Our good friends' dog died recently. Tomorrow is the first time we will be going to their house since it happened.

So, I wanted to prepare our kids ahead of time to avoid any awkwardness when we got there. Because I am sure someone would have asked where he was.

I broke the news to each of the kids gently. Tate said "Oh, well what if their girl dog comes alive again?". Referring to their other dog who passed away some time ago.

"Tate...", I explained gently, "That can't happen. Once something dies, it doesn't come alive again."

Reese corrected me and said, "Except Jesus!".

Our Idol Experience

The excitement for American Idol in our household continues. (Well, not with David, but for the rest of us).

We are actually a few episodes behind. We just found out who made it into the top 24 tonight. The girls are getting antsy to vote. Maybe next week.

Drue seriously makes me laugh out loud at some point during every episode. Last night while we were watching it, I asked Drue if she liked a certain contestant.

"No," she said, "She has weird hair."

"Ok, well they're not judging her hair, they're judging her singing silly," I reminded her.

Then she decided, "Well, if I were a judge, I would pick them by who has the best hair, and it would be called A-hair-ican Idol!".

During the episode we watched tonight, it was down to the last two girls for one spot left in the top 24. The girl who got cut didn't take it too gracefully. While the cameras were still on her she decided to give the judges a piece of her mind.

Thankfully the little American Idol emblem blocked her two hands as she made a gesture to the judges.

Drue said, "I know what she just did with her hands."

Shocked and appalled and wondering where in the world she could have possibly learned that, I watched her pull her little hands out from under the blanket and show me...two thumbs down!

One Track Mind

On February 26, 1995 David asked me out for pizza after church.

And the rest is history.

Corny, I know. But it's a little late in the day for me to be too creative.

This past Saturday we said our "Happy Anniversaries" and reminisced about that day...16 years ago.

Later that evening we took the kids to the movies. As we were driving, David began recounting our first date for them.

"Kids, 16 years ago today I went out for pizza."

A few disinterested "oh"s and "hmmm"s could be heard from the backseat.

"Pepperoni pizza", he continued.

Still not much of a reaction.

"Do you know who ate with me?" he asked.

They started to show a little more interest at that point. "Mommy!" they guessed correctly.

"Yep, I asked Mommy out for pizza after church 16 years ago."

Then he said, "Just think, if she hadn't said yes to pizza, there's a chance that none of this would have happened."

Silence from the back.

"What do you think of that Reese?".

I waited for her sweet answer of how she was happy I said yes and happy we were her Mommy & Daddy, when she said, "You had pepperoni huh?".
