You Could Say That

The boys have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of some rubber band guns that were ordered for Nels's birthday. The company accidentally sent them to a different Shaun Martin, so the guns didn't make it in time for the party last weekend.

Well, today the package arrived. We waited until Nels got home from school, and then the boys crowded around me in the kitchen as I opened up the box.

"THE GOODNESS IS HERE," intoned Willem. "THE FLASH BEAM OF LOVE IS COME."

Seriously, can you send those boys to Chicago...I want them to live with me!

BTW- we have an awesome rubber band gun too.

Carol, I'm quite sure they would enjoy that!

It was a weekend trip with David and Heather and their kids that sparked the rubber band gun lust. Their whole family was armed to the teeth! :)

Your kids are very fantastic.

We really must get our families together at some point. Our kids are so similar! When I read your blog, I miss their younger selves...

"Flashbeam of Love"??? Where does he get this stuff?

Just what I needed to hear - I needed a good laugh - thanks.

Amy, I've had the very same thought! You will definitely have to come for a visit if you're ever in our neck of the woods.
