Kid Funnies

Several months ago, the light in our garage was on the fritz and would sort of blink, like the light bulb wasn't completely screwed in.

Emily's reponse..."Hey, the light blunk!"

What a great new word!

The other night we were reading scriptures as a family. Josh was super excited because we got to start a new book, 3rd Nephi to be exact. He begged us to let him read the first verse, and we happily agreed. Whatever it takes to get them excited, right?

If you look at your scriptures, the first word in the first verse of a new book always starts with a really big capital letter and then the rest of the word is capitalized.

(Go get your scriptures if you need to.)

In his enthusiasm, Josh interpreted the difference in size for this first word to mean that it should be shouted. If only I had a recording of this! Just imagine what it would sound like to hear - "NOW it came to pass...." with complete innocence and a huge amount of enthusiasm.
Needless to say, we all laughed through the first verse and then stopped to compose ourselves!
