If you were a fly on our wall this week you would have heard this:

Sunday we were talking about horses and Ethan mentioned that when a horse breaks a leg, they have to shoot it.  Eva then said to us, "They don't really shoot the horses in the movies, though.  They just tie them up and then shoot another one."
Oh my - we rolled and rolled laughing so hard.  She then clarified, saying she meant that they would "shoot the other way, not another horse."  But we thought it was pretty funny the first time.  She will be really mad if I pass this along, so don't bring it up with her.  She's just so great and we love to tease her.

"It's a quarter after one, I'm all alone and I need you knowowow... "    Recognize this Lady Antebellum song that is playing almost non-stop on the radio right now?  I love it, so my kids have heard it a few times.  Well Ethan was singing it the other day and continued on to the second verse that says, "It's a quarter after one, I'm a little drunk and I need you knowwooww."  I thought, wow, the whole drunk thing is really not what I want my kid singing about.  So I said to him that maybe we shouldn't be singing that song.  He looked really confused and asked, "Why is it bad?"  And then started to sing it again,  "It's a quarter after one,  I'm a little TRUNK and I need you knowwowo....  A trunk mom, ya know, like a box or a treasure chest.  Why is that bad?"
Oh, you're right, Dude.  Just keep singing about that little trunk.

Last night we had family prayer and it was my turn.  Becks lookes at me and asks, "Mom, do you want me to help you say the prayer?  I'll help you, ok Mom?   Ok. You start."  He then walked me through our family prayer word-for-word, including blessing us that we can let our dog in the house who was barking and that we could all play together in the back yard.  When I was done he was so excited and said, "Good Job Mom!!  You did a good prayer!!" and gave me a big hug.  Those are the best ways to end the night.
