Mason is ENGAGED!!

Congrats are due. Today on the way to the Baptist preschool, Mason (much like his old man) offered a sincere but spontaneous marriage proposal in the car. Taylor accepted. It's her birthday, so she can do whatever she wants. As soon as her hand was secured they moved on to the most pressing order of business - what to name their kids. I have compiled a list from their suggestions and thought perhaps a vote would be in order? Or maybe, if we're lucky, they'll get to use all of them.

Mason Cima and Taylor Stroud
Proud parents of:

Buttbutt Stroud
Toilet Stroud
PooBooby Stroud
Privacy Stroud

How does one pick? They are all really great names. I can't wait to be a grandma!

Weirdo with a beardo

Mason has decided that he's "going to grow a beard now". He asks me if I can see it yet every day. When I say,"not yet, but keep trying!' he concentrates real hard with his hands in little fists. I'll post a picture as soon as he's successful. He will be the coolest kid in kindergarten.

On a related note, I told Amy I'd give her $20 to draw a little beard on Avery when she was baby Jesus at the Baptist church nativity and she thought real hard and then said, "Jesus didn't have a beard when He was a baby... did He?"

Mason: Mom, did Jesus make this whole town?
Me: Um, I guess He kinda did. He made the people that made the town and the stuff they made the town out of... So, I guess so.
Mason: MAN!! When I'm Jesus, I'm going to be sooo tired.

I'm thinking maybe the gospel hasn't really been taught in its fullness at my house. Maybe we should have less Family Home Evenings about "HOW TO STOP FIGHTING 101" and more "Jesus is Jesus and you won't ever be Jesus". I'll start tonight.

Robin Noblitt

I have a friend named Robin Noblitt. Say it out loud. Again. Isn't that the best name ever? If I ever go into hiding for the FBI (again) that will be my name. "Nice to meet you. I'm Robin. Robin Noblitt."
