(And, I wanted to post another picture but I found this one of Claire & Lily and I was just amazed at how much Lily looks like Drew!!! What do you think?) :)

*Wednesday at the insurance office, the lady was singing "twinkle, twinkle, little star" to Lily. Lily said, "Shhh! my sing." and started singing! She is very particular about singing. She thinks SHE is the best singer ever & mama thinks she is right (Claire is too!). :)

*Claire said that Mama is sick and is now putting address labels all over my arm. She says they are band-aids. ;) It's gonna hurt pulling those suckers off!

*Claire put her ponytail holders on her ankles and said, "Mama, my ankles need bracelets, too. They are very musical." (What? does that mean?) :)

*Lily telling me she is "too tired" when she doesn't want to go to sleep! lol. :) Exactly why you need to go to sleep sweet girl!

*Claire saying, "Daddy, I am going to marry you." Charlie said, "Why do you want to marry Daddy, baby?" Claire said, "You are cute (wonder where she heard that one?) and I am cute, so we can get married" Daddy says, "What about Mama?" Claire then said, "Well, she can cook for us". :) Gee thanks!! I get to be the maid!! HOW funny is that?! :)

*Fixing sweet potatoes for supper the other night and Claire said, "Where's the ugly potatoes?" Because if she is being bad, we tell her it is "being ugly " and if she is being good, we tell her she is "being sweet". So cute!

Well, I just thought I would share these! My kids say such cute things all of the time and I just forget to write them down. So, I am recording them here today. :)

Happy Friday!!
