We played "Charades" for our family game night, McKay's game choice.  On Benson's turn, he was walking around the room growling at all of us.  Is it a tiger, bear, lion, wolf, monster?  After lots of guesses, we all gave up.  Benson had stumped us.

"Benson, what are you?"

"A caterpillar."

Of course.  Why couldn't we have thought of that?

mother's day 2012

I think my Mother's Day keeps getting better and better.  (Spencer, you are learning, good job!!)  I felt so loved!  Spencer got me a burgundy iceberg thorn-less rose bush.  Yay!  (I collect's a recent infatuation.)  He also got me a Ninja, blender and food processor, which we needed.  I am super excited about this gift being that we've never had a nice one, only the cheapest of the cheap blenders.  I've already made a smoothie and hummus in it.

Taylor's card entertains me and so I thought I'd share it.

"Dear Mother, I will try to help with McKay, Maren, and Benson, if you take care of Hannah.  Taylor"

I just can't stop laughing!!!  The words that really get to me are "try" and "if".  Hilarious!  Thank you Taylor!
