Last night we all went to a Christmas party where instead of a white elephant gift exchange there was a $10 gift certificate exchange. You can imagine his delight when Jon walked away with a Hooter's gift card (insert sarcasm here). All last night we were joking that he could take our CPA or Jonah there sometime (or our Pastor! haha).
So today my sister April calls and wants to take Ava and Jonah out for lunch. While Ava's screaming and jumping up and down with elation, I asked Jonah where he wants to go, and he said . . . you guessed it: "Hooters!"

Momma: "Ava, does your ear hurt?" and I kissed her ear.
Ava: "No, I hurt my tongue."
Momma: "Oh, well, I'm not kissing your tongue, it would be all wet and slimy."
Ava: "I'm pulling on my ear because I hurt my tongue."
Momma (laughing): "Oh, like when you bite your tongue?" This is a little thing we made up to help the kids cope when they bite their tongues, which is nearly every night at dinner.
Ava: "STOP LAUGHING ABOUT MY LIFE, PLEASE!"
Our kids don't talk in their sleep every night, but last night Ava did. As I walked in to kiss her before heading to bed (it was almost midnight) she rolled over and mumbled something. I said, "What, Avie?" She then said loudly, "Mim dim I not dream in my room!"
I kind of like these little night-time surprise sayings; they are one of those fun secrets that (usually) only family knows about (unless you post them on your blog for the world to see) and bond us together...

Alternate titles for this post:
--"Jon raking the leaves...Wait! Are those kidlets in there?!" or
--"Jonah: I want to be buried by leaves. You can even cover my face!" or
--"Our heater broke and this is how we are trying to stay warm. Leaves are great insulators, you know." or
--"Mom, this isn't funny anymore. Let me out of these nasty leaves, please! Why do you always make us post for pictures for the blog?!"
