Beware of flower girls

M:  I heard you are going to have a special St. Patrick's Day snack at school!  Maybe something green?
Tater:  I hope it's green vegetables!
Brothers:  (shocked and horrified silence)

The Nugget and Tater are playing stuffed animals together frequently.  I love eavesdropping.
Boo:  I always cry at weddings.
Tater:  Why?  Because they're always throwing flowers?
Boo:  No, I might be allergic to weddings.  My eyes just water, and I don't know why.
Tater:  Are you afraid of flower girls?

Nugget: I was invited to play music at a wedding.  There's just one problem - the wedding is in another dimension, and I'm not sure how to get there.

I showed the Nugget and Tater videos of Fiona the hippo.  Both were delighted with baby Fiona, and afterwards, I asked what they liked best.
N:  The way her ears flap!
T:  Her IV!

N:  I hope we can get a puppy soon.
Spork:  I don't want one.
Tater:  I only want one if it has good breath!

Goodbye, Shamrock

Our very special furry friend has been slowing down the last few years.  I've had this book on a shelf for a couple years now, and today when Shamrock couldn't stand up to go outside, I had to dust it off and read it to the Nugget while we both cried buckets into his Frosted Mini Wheats.  After the children went to school, Hubby and I took our sweet girl to the vet one last time, gave her salami and cheddar cheese, petted and cuddled her until she fell into the big sleep, kissed her cold nose, and came home without her.  She was the best dog, and we were so lucky to have her in our lives.
