Random Quotes, GIFs, Birthdays, Anniversaries, OH MY!!

Here are some random quotes for your enjoyment. One each from Taye, Brinkley, and Jaten:

“I’m telling you, straight is not the way to go.”

“Everyone in this family has a cute butt except for Dad.”

“This is a lot of people just for cake.”

Who is who??

Okay, maybe Jaten’s is obvious. And Brinkley’s point was more that she has no opinion about Josh’s butt as that would be strange.

Taye’s is a bit mysterious as she is the most extroverted of us all. Her quote, “This is a lot of people just for cake,” was spoken as we all walked into a celebration for the kids’ high school being named the number one high school in Colorado. There were a lot of people there and we were really just going to the celebration for free food. None of us really cares for crowds of people. We all get a little like this:

And then like this:

School started and Jaten and Brinkley are going full-time with a mix of high school and college classes, Taye is going part-time (three classes) at a middle school, and Kye goes all day on Mondays only at a co-op type school for homeschoolers. Add in dance classes, seeing friends, etc. and I spend more time in the car than anywhere else. Sometimes my trips into town number five per day.

Me, waking to my alarm and realizing it’s Monday:

Me, realizing Taye has passed me up in height at not yet 12-years-old:

Josh and I enjoyed hanging out with each other, as we always do, and we celebrated our 18th anniversary! We saw the Book of Mormon musical. I cannot say enough how awesome it was! Laughed my ass off. Seriously.
