Hazel telling me her plan for the day:
"We should take 'Biah's jumping rope and tie it to a tree with Jackson...with his shoes on. And we'll tie him to a tree."
I made cookies one day and told the kids they could have one after dinner. A little while later the girls snuck into something and I told them that they lost the privilege of having a cookie after dinner. Of course they were disappointed.
During dinner the kids kept telling me how good the food was and how I'm a good cook. Hazel took that moment to tell me, "Good cooks make cookies for good kids and bad kids."
She was so cute about it that I told her, "Hazel you are right. But I don't have any bad kids." I changed my mind and let the girls have a cookie and they paid me back for sneaking by working for me.
A land surveyor was walking by our house and Hazel exclaimed, "WOW! What a HONK!"
When I asked Hazel if she had a mess to clean up she responded, "No complendo!"
Hazel was sick and Amelia wanted in on the attention. She said, "Mom, my froat hewts!"
When I asked her where her throat was she said, "Wite hew" and pointed to her tummy.
