Mason the explorer

My daughter sent this picture of my grandson Mason (number 4).  This child is a true explorer.  He can go and do anything. There are no boundaries as far as he is concerned.  While I was visiting last month, if I was ever left alone with him, I took him with me wherever I went, to the bedroom, the bathroom, whatever, because this is exactly what I  experienced when I  left him alone. I did not take the time to document it, I'm so glad she did.

This is what Dad tells us about the picture...
Nathan S. Howard The amazing part is that he pre planed the stool on the counter. He took it before he got the chair and shoved it up on the counter top, then pulled the chair with the booster seat over to get to the counter, once the bottom shelve is empty he then slides the stool over to get to the other two shelves, the kid's a genius, I can't even plan that far ahead.

When I got back to Arizona I found this cartoon and immediately thought of him.  It's funny that Kim sent this photo just the other day.  Now I can combine the two.  I wonder if there is a playpen big enough for the whole apartment. Wouldn't that be a blessing!  Kids are fun!  especially my grandchildren.   I'm so glad their parents are on top of things.

a thought to cheer you

 I wish I was a glow worm
     A glow worm's never glum
           'Cus how can you be grumpy
                      When the sun shines out your bum!

There are times when I am cleaning out boxes that I come across a poem or quote I have found in my travels and have jotted it down on a napkin or a piece torn paper. This little ditty is one of them.I found it tucked into a folder which was among a pile of old business folders that I was discarding.

If this is not corny enough for you, I also found a list of jokes I use to send to the Missionaries when I would write to them.  I suggested the jokes be use when they taught little children.  There was only one Elder who said he actually used them to help break the ice in homes with children.  Yes, I'm going to list them below.

Q.  Why did the cookie go to the doctor?
A.   Because it was feeling crummy.

Q.  What did the stamp say to the letter?
A.  Stick with me and we will go places.

Q.  Why is #6 afraid of #7 ?
A.  Because 7  8  9.  *seven ate nine

Q. What do you call cheese that you don't own?
A.  Nacho Cheese

Q.  What do you get when you cross a centipede with a parrot?
A.  A walkie talkie

Q.  Which side of a bird has the most feathers?

Q.  What did the scarf say to the hat?
A.  You go on a head and I'll just hang around.

Q. What do you call a broken bomerang?
A. A stick

There are lots more, but these are my favorites.   Kids jokes always make me smile.  Hope these did the same for you.

Eye spy with my little eye...

While I was visiting Kim I killed my phone.  When I returned home Gary bought me a new one. Usually I just get the free phone.  I don't need it to be fancy just make and receive calls.  This time Gary choose one with a keyboard and it's Bright Blue.  He got a matching phone only in Black.  The sales woman told him to get me a different color so we didn't pick up each other's phone.  Which is a very good idea.  When I got home with my new bright blue (,that's what I named her, Bright Blue) Garrett saw it and said, Gee Mom, is that phone bright enough.  Now I know why Dad got the blue one, you never know where you phone is, you can see that one from anywhere in the house! And he is right.

Tormentors or Dementors?

Today in Gospel Doctrine we discussed the parable of the servant (Matthew 18) who was forgiven his debt but did not do likewise to the person who owed him.  When the Lord found out about his unwillingness to forgive  the Lord had him cast into prison and delivered him to the tormentors.

Sister Dugan's  comment was, "he delivered him to the tormentors, oooh, that sounds soooo creepy.
Sister Cornwall followed with, "I know what you mean, it sounds like Harry Potter!"
Bishop Clifford immediately corrects her by saying, " you mean DEMENTORS, right? pause.....oh man, I can't believe I just said that out loud."

the whole room erupted with laughter
