Kids say the darndest things!

Sammy says the funniest things lately! I'm going to try and describe some of the scenarios and explanations here.
One day he and I were driving home from church late on Wed night. I was beyond anxious to get him home and in bed (because I know what it's like with him the next day when he gets to bed late!) I was getting what some would describe as "very frustrated", but I would say "a little annoyed" that everyone on the road was going too slow, not using turn signals, cutting me off at ridiculously slow speeds, etc. Sammy was sitting behind me (which turned out to be a good thing) and was asking the same questions over and over and over...and over! This was adding to my frustration (yes, ok, by this point I was frustrated!) I said to him "Samuel, please!" he replied "goodness sakes, Mommy" I apparently have said that to him before and he knew what was coming next! That completely relaxed me and made me almost wet myself I was laughing so hard, but trying to hold it in and that's where it was good he was behind me so he didn't see me!
There are 2 commercials that Sammy has taken a liking to. One is of the Philadelphia Zoo and a father is talking in a british accent as if he were the lion (off camera so you just see the lion and hear the dad's voice) he says something about the baboons being in his water again and then says "get the skimma!" (skimmer) Sammy looked at me the other day out of the blue and said "Mommy, get the skimma!" I once again laughed me head off!
The other commercial is a really annoying little groundhog that advertises the lottery and at the end of each commercial he says "keep on scratching!" Sammy apparentely has seen this one too many times also and said to me one day "Mommy, keep on scratching!" I laughed so hard at this one and told several people about it and now he thinks it's just the funniest thing ever so he repeats it a lot!
He loves to play a little game with daddy at bedtime. One of them will start and say "I love you" and the other will say "I love you more" Tote will leave the room and Sammy will yell out again "I love you more!" Tote runs back in and says "I love you more" and that will go back and forth several times. It's very cute! The other day he hugged me and said "I love you, Mommy!" I said "I love you too" and he said "I love you more first!"
This is all I can think of for now. Trust me he keeps us laughing!
And as one final note to all of you.....Keep on scratching! (Just kidding! We don't endorse the lottery!!)

We're back! Quick Update

Ok...a little over a year isn't so long is it??!!
Well, now that things have somewhat settled down we hope to keep this updated more often...we shall see!
Everything is going great with us! Sammy is now almost 2 1/2 and Caleb is almost 3 months old! They are growing like weeds. Sammy is thining out and Caleb is chunking up! Sammy weighs about 30lbs and Caleb weighs 15!
