We're Very Spiritual Here

I just really don't feel like adding a bunch of Halloween pictures because I've already added them to Facebook. Its like double the work! ;)

 I'll get around to it soon I hope, but real fast I wanted to share this funny story before Kimball stops doing it and we forget all about it! So we try to read scriptures with the kids every night, and with the two little boys that don't know how to read, when its their turn we say their part and they repeat it after us. Well, Kimball doesn't really talk so well and saying words like 'verily' and 'whosoever' and whatnot don't always go so well.

Also right now Kimball is completely obsessed with super heroes. He runs around our house all day long 'pkewing' things with his pretend guns and saying "HULK SMASH!" or "Spiderman!!" or whatever else. (I'm going somewhere with this really.)

So anyway, when it gets to Kimball's turn to "read", I'll say a word or two and if they're easy enough he'll try and repeat them. But the last week or so, if its a word he can't really say he'll pause for a minute and then say..."hulk." or something along those lines.

It goes sort of like this:

 Me: "Okay Kimball, say 'Behold'"

 Kimball: "hole"

 Me: "I give..."

 Kimball: "geeve"

 Me: "unto you..."

 Kimball: "yooou"

 Me: "a commandment..."

 Kimball: "....hulk" (everyone snickers and tries not to burst out laughing)

 Me: "that ye suffer..."

 Kimball: "fer"

 Me: "none of the things"

 Kimball: "ironman"

 Me: "KIMBALL stop it!!"

 Yeah, pretty much that. With lots of laughing involved. ;)

 Of course I want him to start talking, and I want everyone to be reverent for scripture reading but in some ways I wish he would never grow up and out of doing this. Because its adorable and hilarious and I know he's going to get bigger and start saying things like "actually" and "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" and big words like that... ;) And I know I'll miss his sweet innocent little boy self so much!

2 awesomeness!...and attractiveness!:
