Toes, Air Compressors, and Garbage - by Brad

Lindsey sent me an email yesterday describing the silliness of our boys. I decided to steal her experiences and blog about them.

Ever since Wesley learned to talk, he has been thinking up funny little wordplays. He has a dry sense of humor that makes his serious personality pretty entertaining. Yesterday Wesley went up to Lindsey, sniffed her feet, and then said, "hmm, you smell toasty... your toes smell toes-ty."

Then shortly after this, as Lindsey took out her blow dryer, Elliott asked, "What are you going to do with that air compressor for your head?"

As Lindsey continued to fix her hair and put on makeup, Elliott kept asking, "how come you do that... what's that for... why do you do that?" After a few questions, Lindsey asked him why he asks so many questions. To this he answered, "because I don't know all about girl stuff."

Well, I haven't posted many pictures Spencer. It must be because he's the third child and is somewhat overlooked by his two older brothers who keep us busy and entertained with their antics. Spencer is actually much more smiley than his brothers were. Wes has always been serious, and Elliott's cheeks were too fat to smile much. Anyway, here is Spence swinging on our back patio.

Last weekend, the temperature was bouncing around 100, so Lindsey got out the kiddie pool and let Elliott and Wesley play around for a while.

Elliott enjoyed splashing around, and I enjoyed trying to take pictures of the water in mid-air...

I like this one because it looks like Elliott is trying to "use the force" to manipulate the water...

Lindsey snapped this shot of the boys on the front porch watching the garbage truck driver do his thing...

Uncle Brad was pretty funny about the garbage truck. I like the hair dryer one.

We all like the picture of Elliott using the force and I love Elliott's quote about the air compressor for your head.
