Noah received his first (and hopefully last) hickey yesterday afternoon. Apparently, he was involved in a game of "Vampire" and he was the victim.  Who was the vampire?  His sister, Emma, of course.  I'm not sure what to think about Emma giving out hickeys at age 7, and to her brother!  Sheesh.  I am never prepared for what they will do next. 

This is a shot of Noah in "time-out" for something unrelated to this post.  I'll wait till tomorrow for that story.  You can see the hickey here.  Nicely placed, Emma.  Noah is currently wearing a bandaid on his neck so no one will see it.  He's terribly embarrassed and he has no idea why.

Funny Bits

Funny little bits from the last couple of months ....

Michaelynn:  "I might need See's (Candies) today."
Chance:  "OK.  Do they sell those at Fry's (Electronics)?"
Michaelynn:  "Um....not usually."

At the furniture store looking at new beds....
Noah: "Most of the stuff here is for ladies." *grimaces*

"He's not Dracula. He's called 'Lord Vampire' and you have to say that in a fancy voice."
~Noah, discussing the new Monster Legos

Tyler:  "Mom, I need barbarians for my ripstick."
Mom:  "Barbarians?"
Tyler:  "Yeah, Lorilei's grandpa told me that's what I need for my wheels."
Mom:  "Could you possibly mean ball bearings?"
Tyler:  "Oh, yeah.  Maybe that's what they're called."

Noah:  "Mom, Emma licked my DS."
Me:  "That's just gross."

Emma:  "It was just a little lick."

Took the kids to the circus for the first time today.
Emma: "Mommy! It's just like the TV show America's Got Talent!"  

Kinda sad when AGT trumps Ringling Bros.

Michaelynn:  "The school was crazy insane this morning.  Had two police cars directing traffic....The policemen were directing traffic, not their cars."
Chance:  "Yes, I got that."

Noah: "Can we watch E.T. tomorrow?"

Emma: "What's E.T.?"
Noah: "You know, that alien that eats Reese's Pieces?"

Went to the Supermall with Emma and she begged to go on the merry-go-round. I told her it wouldn't be fair because the boys weren't with us. Her reply:  
"I won't tell them! I'll just write about it in my journal."

Chance:  "Did Tyler make it out (to school) OK?"
Michaelynn:  "You didn't stay? .... Well, he's either at school, ran away from home or in a serial killer's lair."
Chance:  "Yes, it's one of those three."
