Keeping secrets that make you wanna pee your pants

A package was just delivered to our door. Audrey yelled, "Thank you!" to the driver, then turned to me and said, "You got clothes." She was guessing this based on the package. I replied, "Nope! It's one of your dad's Christmas gifts, but you can't tell him what it is."

She starts doodling and says under her breath, "I could hardly keep his presents secret last year. I almost peed my pants not saying anything."

I was putting Nina to bed last night when she complained that her lips were chapped. "Go downstairs and ask Dad for some chapstick. Tell him I sent you."

Her translation: "Dad, I respect you. Can I have some of your chapstick?"

He and I didn't figure this out until we were going to bed and telling our day's funny story wrap-ups. I nearly choked on my toothbrush, I was giggling so hard.

What? Veggies can hang lights, too

Audrey told our friend, Michelle, "The vegetables are coming today to hang lights on our house."

She meant "professionals."

A vacation wrap-up

I nearly forgot to post these...

We finally took a family vaca this summer. Airplane and all. Neither Audrey or Nina remember previous flights due to their ages, so they were uber excited. Here are a few tidbits from the first leg of the flight...

The flight attendant brings Nina her snack - those little graham-like crackers that are oval-shaped. Nina says loudly, "Scooby Snacks!"

Then as the flight attendants go up and down the aisle, collecting garbage, Audrey says seriously, "Kinda looks like they're trick-or-treating."

And last, but not least, during the first descent, Nina yells, "We're going down!"
