Funny girl.

Oh, to be two. Claire has been saying the funniest things lately. She is constantly making Jeff and I laugh. Here is a conversation we had yesterday morning...

C: Mommy, you making toffee? (coffee)
E: Yes.
C: Ummm, I wuv toffee!
E: oh, really... well, coffee isn't for kids.
C: I a kid? No... mommy, I Cware! (Claire)
E: Is Luke a kid?
C: No, Wuke is my brofer. (Brother)

Also, Claire has discovered the game "Simon says". She has been playing it for some time, but Jeff and I just couldn't figure out what she was talking about. We thought she was just making up songs! She will say "Diaper says... shake your body". A translation: Simon says, shake your bottom! It is hysterical.

I saved the best story for last... In the last few months I have had the privilege of being in a great Bible study. I have met great women, who have turned into great friends. In addition to this I also got to know Peggy Nelson, Byron Nelsons wife. She was our small group leader for this Bible study, she is amazing. Anyway, to end out the semester she invited our small group over to her house for lunch on Tuesday. Well, I don't know about you, but I had never been to a famous persons house before. I was SO excited... My friend Allison and I packed all three kiddos into the car and headed to "Fairway Ranch" for lunch. Lunch was great... a little nerve racking, but great. I have never stressed so much about Claire spilling as I did during that lunch. After lunch Peggy took us on a tour of the house and showed us all of the amazing woodworking pieces that Byron had made, and also many things that he had won being the most famous golfer in the world. During the tour Peggy mentioned that she didn't mind if we took pictures. So, I ran to my car to get my camera. I took Luke with me, and my friend Becky watched Claire while I was away. When I returned the tour was in the master bedroom. I walked in, and there was Claire, kicked back on Byron Nelsons bed. I almost died. I was more stressed about it than anyone else, Peggy didn't mind, so I took the opportunity to get a priceless picture of Claire. It will be one of those pictures to show her future boyfriends!
Well, that turned into a long story, but wasn't it worth it? Sometimes I wish I could be two again, and not have a care in the world!

I wish someone had caught your face on camera when you walked in the room and saw Claire chilling on Byron's bed! I am laughing thinking about that panick- stricken look. :) I would pay money to see that!!
