What is playing at a theater near you?

Kevin and I were out the other night...and spotted the funniest thing. A new movie! We have never even seen the previews! What a find! I think it might be about some animals who have dreams of escaping the zoo, to become racecar drivers! How exciting!

Science City

Science City is one of our favorite spots in Kansas City to visit. Here is one of the great exhibits for your viewing pleasure.

All you need to do is stare at the center of the vortex, and try to not look away, or fuzz out of focus. It will be good, I promise!

Try it again and look at something else near you.

Quotes from a 3 year old

"MOM! we CAN'T take the decorations down! I don't want to ruin Christmas! (stern sing-song here) Mom, Santa will be mad."

With folded arms and a big pout, "Santa just bringed me a BOX!" upon unwrapping a gift, to find a plain brown box which needed to be opened to disclose what the gift really was. This has since become the thing to say whenever opening something in a plain box at our house.

On the way to preschool one morning:
"Mom, if you kill me, you will be sad." To which I asked if she was scared of mommy...,"Nope, but you will be sad if you kill me." "sweety, mommy would never kill you.", "yeah, you would be sad." Let me tell you, this one gave me shivers! I was thinking I needed to call a psychologist, but no need for alarm here! I had thought about it all that day, and remembered later that I had told the boys to please be quiet so I wouldn't crash the car and kill everyone...as we drove on icy roads into the blinding sunrise.

While listening to Eartha Kitt's "Santa Baby" on the radio..."Mom? How do santa babies get down the chimney? They can't even WALK!"

"Dad! You're not a doctor!". After being told 'no more monkeys jumping on the bed'.
