Good Memories and Fun Times

Here are some more funny quotes from my girls, Ok mostly just Bekah.

October 2009

Bekah ran into Grandmom's office and immediately grabbed the crackers and peanut butter. Then she turned to Grandmom and demanded a cracker. Mommy stopped Bekah and asked her what she needed to say to her Grandmom. Bekah responded, "Can I have two crackers."

November 2009

Daddy told Bekah, "We must eat our eggs with haste." Bekah then responded, "No, we must eat our eggs with cheese."

Bekah listened to Brittany's heart with a stethoscope and didn't hear anything. She was very concerned that Brittany had no heart. During lunch time she prayed that God would help Brittany since she didn't have a heart.

December 2009

One evening when mommy was making dinner, Bekah asked for vanilla milk. Mommy started heating up the milk and Bekah got the vanilla extract down. A minute or two later mommy heard Bekah call, "Mommy! (cough) Help Me!!" Mommy ran into the living room to find Bekah with the vanilla bottle in her hand, vanilla running down her chin and all over the floor. She was coughing and almost throwing up. After a drink of water we discussed how if one has to hide from mommy to do something, it probably was not a good idea to do. She kept saying over and over, "I hope I learned my lesson!"

Bekah loves to say, "That's not bad. That's good." and "Is that a good idea, mom?"

We have been having lots of trouble getting Bekah to pick up her toys quickly. Tonight Bekah and Hannah made a huge mess. Mommy asked Bekah to pick up her toys. Bekah said, "No! I don't want to pick them up." Mommy responded, "You need to pick them up in 10 minutes or mommy will take away the toys." She looked straight at mommy and said, "You can just pick them up now and take them away." She even offered to pick them up and put them in the garbage bag to put out in the garage. Then she pointed out one that mommy missed.

January 2010

When Bekah's tummy hurts, mommy often gives her a hot water bottle to help it feel better. The other day she kept asking for a warm american for her tummy. After several questions mommy figured out that she wanted a hot water bottle.

Bekah's prayer: Dear Jesus, Thank-you for alligator (gatorade) and Daddy's Pepsi and Mommy's hot chocolate and Hannah's milk and lasagna and green beans and bread and butter. Amen.

Bekah had been dry during her nap time several days in a row. Mommy said that she was such a big girl. Bekah responded, "I am such a big girl. I'm almost a grown-up. I'm almost a mommy!"

Our first born loves her eggs with joke (yolk).

We went to Disneyland (though Bekah always calls it Bisneyland) with our family. Hannah was just along for the ride. Bekah loved going on all the rides. Her favorite rides were the tea cups, the carousel and the Pirates of the Carribean.

The second day in Disneyland our keys to the car got lost on a ride. We had the kids stop many times in the next day to to pray that God would help us find the keys. Bekah was convinced that we could not get home EVER if we didn't find the keys. She prayed very hard that God would help us. And He did!!! Shortly before leaving the park on the last night we found them at City Hall. What a great showing of God's provision. He care for even the little things.

Bekah woke up from her nap and walked down stairs. Her Grandpop and his doggy Cassie was there. Daddy said, "Bekah, do you see who is here?" She looked up and shouted, "Cassie!" Then ran and gave her a hug-completely ignoring Grandpop.

Daddy and Bekah were having lunch. Bekah asked Daddy repeatedly what the picture was on her shirt. Daddy kept saying, "I don't know." Then Bekah asked, "Do you not have a clue?"

That is all I have for now, though I am sure I will have lots more to share in the future.

Funny Memories

I love reading back through all the funny things that Bekah does and says. She just makes me laugh so much. Here are some more stories to share with you.

April 2009

Every time that Bekah chokes and gets water down the wrong pipe she says, "Burp me!!"

Bekah spent a weekend with her Grandmom and Grandpop. As they were driving to church Bekah said, " Sometimes I get so tired of Grandpop's driving."

May 2009

We were on our way to visit Grandma Martha. Mommy said we were going to get ice cream to share. She asked Bekah, "Do you want Carmel or chocolate on your ice cream?" Bekah said, "Carmel. I think I can handle that."

When we walked into the nursing home there were a bunch of grandma's sitting in wheel chairs. Bekah ran up to one of them and handed her the pictures for her grandma. Then she gave the lady a big hug and tried to climb into her lap. The sweet lady was so thrilled.

While our family was at the Writebol's house, Bekah and Allie went off to play. They found a way into Stephanie and Jeremy's room. There they found two tubes of tooth paste. When we discovered them, the door was locked and they were both covered with tooth paste. They painted the carpet and mirror as well. The room smelled fresh and minty. We couldn't stop laughing as we cleaned them up.

June 2009

Today during lunch Bekah and mommy had a great talk. Bekah said she was going to be a big daddy when she was big. Not a mommy. A Daddy! She then said she wasn't going to be a mommy, just a big girl. Then she told me when she was big she was going to drive; every where including the post office.

Bekah asked Mommy what was on her shirt. Mommy said, "It is a Nike symbol that is a swoosh. Bekah laughed and giggled and said that was a silly word. "See-woosh!" She kept asking mommy to say it again and again. Then Bekah started praising God and said, "God made mommy and daddy and Hannah and me. God made sham-poooo, towels, sink and the bath tub." She just loves to stop and thank God for all that He has given us.

Bekah is finally getting back in the mode of saying she loves us. She will hold our face in her hands. Then she gets right up in our face and passionately says, "I just love you so much!" It is the sweetest thing.

Her words of the month that we find so funny are: Hop-is-school=Hospital, Pop-is-school=Popsicle, Charlie browns=Hash browns, part-part=Pop tart and French fries in her hair= French braid.

Who are you going to grow up to be like? Bekah's answer, "Bekah".

After Baily stole and ate Bekah's last two bites of chicken nuggets, daddy said that Baily was a bad doggy. Bekah piped up, "But I still love her."

On our camping trip to Mt Cobb with the Boyds and the Laffans, God protected us in a big way. Robin, Michelle, Dan and Sarah, along with eight small children went on a long walk. On the last stretch of the walk Sammy said that he saw a snake. Sarah was walking ahead of the others with five little kids and looked over to see the snake. It was a two foot long rattle snake lying only a foot or two away from where the kids were standing. We all froze and then instructed the children to quietly walk past it. Once past the snake, it slithered off the trail and into the woods. I praise God for protecting each one of us.

One morning on that camping trip we were sitting around the fire pit. Max saw Hannah and asked what her name was. Then he said, "She's a cute baby. Just like a fat, little pig." We all got a good laugh.

Bekah loves to say, "You are my precious little girl!" to her mommy.

August 2009

Bekah told Mommy and Daddy that she wrote a note for them. The note said to get bacon at the store since she really wanted bacon. At least that's what she told us.

Bekah's favorite saying that she says at least once a day is, "Jesus died on the cross and Noah's ark was full of animals."

We told Bekah that we were going to help the Boyds get ready to move. She started jumping up and down and shouted, "I love boys!"

We told her Josiah would be there too since they are good friends. She remembered that two months ago he held her hand. What are we in for?

Hannah is 10 1/2 months now. She just got her third tooth and is about to get her fourth. Boy is she cranky! She can say mama, dada and shriek loudly. She has just discovered how to pop her tongue off the roof of her mouth.

Bekah loves to ask everyone, "Are you a fan of Pepsi?"

September 2009

Bekah to Daddy, "You're the best hot chocolate in the world!"

After Learning Lambs Childcare during Bible study, Bekah was asked to recite her verse. She said proudly, "Don't touch any body." Mommy is glad that she knows the rug rules. Now we have to work on her actual verse.

At 11 months old Hannah is cruising and climbing and crawling every where. She likes to scoot across the floor with her hands and one knee down while she pushes herself forward with her other foot. Hannah likes to say "Bye" and she flicks her wrists in a darling way to wave. It is so cute!

Bekah to Daddy, "Where do fingers live?"

The Story of the Good Samarian. Told by Bekah. Bad people beat up God with a key and they took His money. Jesus came and put her in bed to help him heal.

Snow Time in Colorado

Megan and Phil snowboarded at the local park. They talked my dad, Chris and me into trying to snowboard. We each tried a few times on a little hill that went right into the playground. We finally had to stop when the sun set. Oh, and the camera ran out of batteries.

This was one of my first attempts at snowboarding.

My sweet little sister and me.

This was an awesome shot of Megan flying by me.

Ready to go snow boarding at the park.

I love that my dad looks like he went face first into the tree. Don't worry, he wasn't harmed in the making of this picture.

We went out sledding at a local park. It was so much fun.

Hannah went down the hill all by herself 12-15 x's. She loved it and only fell on her face the last time.

Taeya didn't want to keep her mittens on. Then she got cold hands and wanted her mommy's gloves.

Even Chris had fun sledding.

Christmas in Colorado

Our family was able to go to Colorado to visit my sister and her family for Christmas. We had a hard time getting there since our flight was canceled. We ended up getting a shuttle to San Francisco, staying in a hotel, getting up at 3:30 the next morning to make a 6 am flight. Once in Colorado we had a wonderful time. My parents were able to be there and celebrate with us and that was very special. We had a great time playing games, playing in the snow and just being with family.

My darling Hannah is all ready for Christmas!

One of my favorite pictures.

Megan, Philip and Taeya make such a great picture.

Taeya had such a sweet smile.

Bekah loved her sock monkey!

Taeya is all dressed up for Christmas.

Papa Karl held Hannah during breakfast. She was so sick and just wanted to be held. At least there were lots of arms to hold her.
