People are often unreasonable and self-centered. Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of ulterior motives. Be kind anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway.
Give the world your best and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It never was between you and them anyway.
-Mother Teresa

We were visiting my brother in SG and eating some lunch with them. There were a couple of us in the conversation with the girls about healthy eating and not eating junk food because it makes you fat. Regan pipes up and says, "It will make you fat like my daddy!" (chuckle chuckle)

She was feeding a horse some grass and turned to me with a disgusted face. "I got horse lick on me!"

To the tune of "London Bridges Falling Down":
"I'm a monster, so I'm dangerous, so I'm dangerous, so I'm dangerous.
I'm a monster, so I'm dangerous. I'm a monster!"

Up at camp Jason's cousin found a snake and she wanted to hold it. When she got it she was saying, "I love this snake. It's my best friend in the whole wide world." (mind you, she says that about alot of things including the vacuum, bugs, and her poo. um......i think we need to find her some better friends) The people around told her to kiss it and she did!

I was canning some beans and Regan says, "Mama I don't like beans."
"They are good and healthy for you."
And then in the meanest and scariest look she could muster she replied, "Mama, I'm going to sing you a song about not liking beans!" (HahahahaHHaha)

We went outside and it was overcast and sprinkling and she said, "Look, the clouds are kissing! That's why it's raining!"

When she goes to bed and we lay with her, we can only lay on a certain side because the other side is for Jesus.

She loves to "cook" in the kitchen making birthday cakes with water and grapes or whatever she can find. She made a concoction (spl?) one day and called it "welcome soup". Alrighty there sista ;)

I just love the funny things kids say.

I can't wait to see her. She is so funny!!It is good that you are writting these down like the others have said. You will miss it when she is a teenager.

Becky and the Boys said...

I love it - and it's good that you are recording it. I can't remember the things my kids say by the end of the day...

Brandi said...

I REALLY need to call you, NOT on the CELL phone, I keep getting cut off and then that is the end of something I wasn't finished with! Anyway, I LOVE how funny and witty REAGAN is! After reading that post, maybe EJ isn't the funniest 3yr. old I know! I am with Becky, I can hardly remember BY THE END OF THE DAY the cute things that EJ had said.

Kim and Darren said...

Funny stuff! Love it. Hope things are going great for you guys. We need to chat so we can catch up. I haven't talked to you in forever. I'll try to get better :)

Catherine said...


I am such a slacker. I see you and the girls ALL THE TIME (lucky me) so then I forget to read your blog because I already know what's going on with you. These last few posts had me rollin on the floor laughing. Sophie really does have sweet cheeks, doesn't she? haha I love that pic of her. And Regan cracks me up that everything is her best friend in the whole wide world. She tells me AND her poo that so I feel pretty special now. haha

PS) That quilt is awesome. You rock, girl!

Kristin said...

Oh my Goodness!! That pic could not get any cuter! I love it! Can you believe school has started!?? AUUUGHHH! Let the craziness begin!

Ashlee & Christian said...

Love all of those. She is so darling in her mannerism of talking. That picture is adorable. We need to get together this next week. I just bought a childrens museum pass, do you have one, if so we should go together sometime since you live so close to it.

Doug and Laura said...

I love that she reserves a side of her bed for Jesus. Cute! Miss you guys.

Bloggin It said...

I fell in LOVE with this post the longer I read... So funny! But I have to say, that picture takes the cake! Your girls are so much fun and sooo cute! I'll trade you for 2 rotten boys that only want to talk about poop? Please? Pretty please? :)
