Overheard at Our House

Zella was almost asleep when she suddenly sat up in bed and yelled, "You be the princess and I'll be the pirate. Arrrrrrrrrrrr!" Then she laid back down and went to sleep.


We went to a picnic on Sunday night at Centennial Park. Madeline loves to pick "flowers" (aka weeds) and there were plenty to pick at the park. She took an empty Coke bottle and filled it with flowers and water. She said the flowers were for God. She held the bottle up in the air for a moment and then seemed frustrated. She said, "Mama, these flowers are for God but he didn't take them!" Too cute.


We were on a walk the other day and Madeline saw a yard filled with dandelions. She told me the people who lived there must be rich because they planted so many flowers in their front yard. :)


Madeline has trouble saying the letter V. (She usually calls Violet Biolet unless she really slows down and thinks about it.) So I thought it was funny when she said, "Look, Biolet has a vomit." I couldn't figure out what she was saying until I realized she was trying to say bonnet.
