Kaycie Sez...

My little noodle Kaycie brings me so much joy.  Knolan does too, of course.  The two of them made me laugh so many times over the holidays... and let's just say that this year we really needed a few laughs to help make the season bright.

Again, I am lamenting that I didn't write them all down as they popped out of her mouth, but Kaycie kept us chuckling over Christmas with a few crazy quips.

1. While snuggling on the couch, trying to help her calm down after a post New Year's Day meltdown (culprit - lack of sleep), I tried to get her to focus on something and asked her to listen to my heart beat:

Me - "What is my heart saying?"  (expecting her to say something like "buh bump, buh bump")

Kaycie - "It says it likes the sound of your voice"

Me (heart melting) - "What else does it say?"

Kaycie - "It says it loves you."

Me - "Anything else?"

Kaycie - "It says it likes alcohol."

2. Some of you may recall her 2010 renditions of holiday classics.  Well, she had one more this year.  I overheard her last week sitting at a piano singing:

"You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I'm telling you why.  Jesus Price is coming to town!"

3. Excerpted from her letter to Santa Claus:

"... and my brother has been good this year too, except for that time he hit me in the face with my baptism scroll."

(true story!  That scroll was pewter and left a bruise.)

Wish I could think of more, but if more come to mind, perhaps my New Year's resolution will be to jot more of these down.  They really do make me smile!

Happy New Year!  Wishing us all a wonderful 2012!
