The cousins are here

Declan is 7 and Lily is 4 (my girls are 7 and 8 if you don't already know -- Frankie wasn't out of bed yet).

I really need to follow this gang around with a tape recorder because they are spinning some kid gold this morning. Everything Lily says is golden, just by nature of the fact that she sounds like she hails from Whoville.

Winnie: Declan has on four pairs of underwear.
Me: At least his butt won't get cold when you are out in the snow.
Declan: Yeah, and if a raccoon bites me he won't get all the way through.

He's always thinkin.

Lizzie gave Lily a costume ring, after a mild dispute between sisters, over who's ring it was to give away -- Winnie gives it to Lily(again).
Acting like she'd never seen such a ring in her life and sounding like a Who, she said, "I will wear this forever."

I wish I had sound on that last one, because the bulk of the cute was in the clear, yet tiny enunciation of each word and her sincerity -- "I, will wear this forever".

Then there's the kids and Gurty. I have no specific story with any kind of payoff for you blogger pals -- I just need to make a note so I can remember how they all think Gurty loves them best.
Lily is super convinced because Gurty seems to be following her, but it's only when she is carrying her Dora blanket -- her, soft, fuzzy, wouldn't that make a great bed, Dora blanket. "Gurty keeps laying on my blanket with me, she loves me."

And the giggles surrounding getting your hand licked by Gurty -- four gigglers all thinking that's funny stuff -- "She's licking me!" "She's licking you!"

Cute cute, I think Gurty loves ME the best! ha ha

I love the Whoville parallel! So funny. I think all moms should install secret cams in the light fixtures, so we could capture all the funny moments.

At Lily didn't announce that she would wear her underware forever, regardless of who gave it to her.
