The girls imitate the Annoying Orange and Apple

The girls were supposed to be sleeping, but were talking to each other instead. I went to investigate and recorded this with the iphone. It was too dark in their room to get much video, and I didn't want to interrupt them, but you can hear them banter back and forth imitating the Annoying Orange and Apple by DaneBoe.

Here's the video they were imitating:

Kid phone conversation

Zack is visiting grandparents in Colorado, and his sisters missed him so we arranged a phone call so they could talk. Here's how it went, completely unscripted:

Zack: "Hello?"
Zadie: "Hi Zack, I miss you"
Zack: "Haaaaah"
Zoe: "Hi Zack, I miss you and I love you"
Zack: "Ahhh"
Zadie: "I miss you and I love you"
Zack: "Ummmm"
Zack: "Uhhhh"
Me: "Zack, do you want to say hi to your sisters?"
Zack: "Errrrrr"

hee hee.

Zoe's threat

Last week Zoe and Zadie and I were walking to go pick up Zack. Zoe was upset with noises Zadie was making and eventually collapsed on the ground. Zadie and I kept walking, not giving in to Zoe's drama. Zoe was furious and didn't want us to walk away like that, so she stood up, grabbed her magic wand she had been carrying, pointed it as us and yelled angrily: "STOP WALKING AWAY OR I WILL TURN YOU INTO A RAINBOW!!!" She was dead serious with the threat, but we couldn't stop laughing....

New bikes for the girls

Last week, one of the girl's trikes cracked and the other one was too rusty to work well, so it was time for an upgrade, and they sure move fast now!

It's 1am, do you know where your kids are?

Late night check on the kids. All are fast asleep. But what had they been up to? Zadie looks like she crash landed

Zack is far from properly-aligned:
But where is the 3rd child? I look around the room and around the house in obvious places.
Closer inspection reveals some clues
Zoe is fast asleep, face down, arms down, knees up, under Zadie's bed

Zoe's hockey lament

Zoe said to me: I'm sad that Zach Parise didn't won.
She was referring to the star player on the USA hockey team, who she was soooo excited to hear about because his name is the same as her brother's. So we were all cheering for Zach and team USA.

Zack has been enjoying playing Mastermind Jr., a simpler version of the mind game. The girls have been playing an easier version where all you have to do is guess the right colors only. The harder way that Zack has been playing is to guess the right colors and the right positions. Well last night, Zoe after watching Zack and I play wanted to play that way too. And she got it! she gave clues correctly when choosing the code, and was smart enough to modify her guesses locially when guessing! Zoe had more interest in playing the game repeatedly too. Zadie was busy building a dog-catching net.

"I'm getting tired and exhausted from doing all these legos. I think I need to burp. (Belch). Ok, I'm better"
