Gwammy and Gwampy

We heard those two words come out of Elise's mouth a lot on our trip to see my parents (actually Grammy and Grampy).  Big brother James, Stephanie, and their four kiddos were a surprise when we got there.  James said they weren't going to be able to come, but they did!  So Mom and Dad had all seven of their grand-kids with them on Grandparents Day.  My cousin also came for a visit with his family which added three more kids to the mix.  Ten kids and eleven adults all in one house at the same time wasn't as bad as it sounds!

Here is a picture of the all the kids with their parents minus Adam (we missed you!).

To Grandpa "My head has bones it it, but you can kiss it."

"Mommy, I favorite!" after Aunt Susan took her to the bathroom.

When putting her to bed last night.  "Can you sing me a new song?"  Sure! so I started to sing a new song.  She interrupted with  "Maybe not that one."  So I started a different one.  "Yes! Yes!  That's the kind of song I'm talkin' about!"

She didn't want to get into the truck after grocery shopping, so I told her that if she didn't come home with us she would starve and might die in the parking lot (I probably shouldn't tell a 2 year old that).  Dane told her again to get in the truck.  She responded with, "I'm going to die, but you can go."
