For Your Listening Pleasure

I'm not exactly sure what she is singing but she seems really into it! (Notice the book is upside down.) Some of the words I caught include "by the way." What funny phrases do you hear?

Family Fun

Here's a video of the "kissing monster" game. My sister, Erin and cousin, Lydia are shown here with Kara, Sophia and Nik. The kids love this "game" and Kara insists on playing it at least once a day.

Math girl

Conversation this morning:

Kara: Mom, did you hear that 2 plus 2 is 4?

Mom: No, I didn't. Where did you hear that? (I know I kinda lied!)

Kara: Hobie and Gobie told me.

Happy first day of Advent!
