Memorable quotes

2013 was a year with some memorable quotes from our kids.  Below is a sample of some of the most funny.

Jacob: "Brussels sprouts... yuck"
Dani: "you mean, brussels sprouts, yum?
<this repeats itself 2 more times>
Jacob: "Mamma, you're being like Satan, trying to force people to do things."
- 1/13 at dinner

"I don't think this is very good."
- 6/1 at Mo's.  Jacob had decided to get Tofu as his protein (despite Jared's warnings)
"Mommy, I still think you look young.  Can I have some chips?"
- 8/10 as Dani was stating that she felt like she was looking older.

Jared: "How do you think the kitchen looks?"
Jacob, excitedly: "Do you really want me to decide if we can be all done cleaning?"
-8/25 as Jared and the kids were cleaning the house.

"Daddy, when we talk about Star Wars, it makes me like you even more."
- 8/31 hiking back to the car from Mirror Lake

"Bless that Claire's voice can get better so she doesn't talk funny at school."
- 9/9 in Jacob's family prayer.

"Not counting the lunch and recess? ... It would be PE if there's PE, music if there's music, or library if there's library."
- 11/29 during Amber's interviews with a 2nd grader series.  The question was, "what is your favorite subject in school?"

- 12/8 while drinking his glass of milk.

"Is Sausage made from a dog's tail?"

"Where Mama go?"

"I'm a pretty Ariel... I'm a pretty Ariel... I'm a pretty Ariel"
- 7/28 while spinning around after getting her dress on.

"Can I have a penis... CAN I HAVE A PENIS!?"
- 8/13 while Jared was talking through putting cream on Liam.  Liam had a bad rash, so Jared was putting cream on his rash, identifying body parts as he did so.  After Jared told him he was going to put some on his penis, he realized Kate was listening.

"What's in there?  What's in there?  It's a boogie!"
- 9/8 while Kate was on Jared's lap in the middle of church.  Jared, trying to keep Kate quiet, whispered, "where's daddy's nose?"  Kate proceeded to point it out, then start trying to put her fingers in his nostril.  She then grabbed his cheeks and pushed his head back as she examined the contents of Jared's nostrils.

"Poopoo da Poopoo"
- 11/17 sung to the tune of "Follow the Prophet."

"My Family.  And my other family, like you guys."
- 11/25.  The first 2 things Kate said she's grateful for in our FHE activity.

Jared: "Kate, are you stinky?"
Kate: "No."
Jared: "Then what's that poopoo doing in your diaper?"
Kate: "Having a wonderful day!"
- 11/28

"Look, it's Jesus and Beebunzle!"
- 11/29, in reference to the olive wood nativity (Beebunzle = Repunzle)

"A hiking I will go" and "That's MY special song!!!" and "Mom, get off daddy's lap.  I need him to read me a book.  I need him to read about YODA!"  and "May the force be with me!"
- 12/1, all within about 5 minutes.  Kate started by claiming exclusive rights to Old McDonald Had a Farm when Liam wanted to sing it.  She then decided that she was going hiking since she was wearing a backpack.  Then, she marched in with a book and demanded that Dani move so Jared could read a Star Wars book to her.

"I'm on the happy list."
- 12/17 a bedtime conversation, where Jared asked if Kate was on the naughty or nice list.

"Too Tight!!!"

"Oh Yeah"
- a lot.

"It's my job to say Oh Yeah"

Kate and Liam
