Kids say the darndest things

Sunday, December 20, 2009

Our friends have these two little girls, Abby (age 5) and Avery (age 4, as of today). They are adorable, we love them, and they love us. Abby even left her mom and came and sat by me during church last week. Every time we are at their house they color us a picture... usually something along the lines of my little ponies, puppies, or flowers. You know, typical 5 year old stuff.

Tonight we went to Avery's birthday party. It was fun eating her funfetti cake and mickey mouse chicken nuggets and watching her open her dress up high heels and polly pockets clothes. The highlight of the evening, however, was this:

 {Please notice what the red arrow is pointing to}

At first I didn't notice this little surprise and I just said "oh Abby! This is such a nice painting of you, Avery, Russell, and I!" And then she said "and look! you have a baby inside you!!" Oh yes, it appears I do.

And no, this is not an announcement. Just a funny story.

{On another note, I'm really glad I caught this moment. It makes me smile.}

From her picture it also looks like Russ' eyes are as big as saucers! Maybe he was a little "freaked out" by the thought of a baby in your tummy! Cute story. P.S. Is her Mom pregnant? Maybe THAT is the big secret!!

Hey! That really was so funny! We were glad you came! We love that you are here in Texas! Have a great vacation, (Abby finally stopped crying after you left.) They both really do love you. Great picture of Russ by the way. Ha Ha!!

HAAA! That is so totally cool. Especially because YOUR baby fits inside a triangle skirt, I'm actually kind of jealous. That is awesome.
