A deep thinker. . .then again. . . .

A few of Lily's recent profound questions:

* "Did God make himself?"

* "Can we talk to Jesus when we are dead?"

* "Where was I when you were a little girl, Mom?"

A few of her not-so-profound questions:

* "Why can't we lay down on the road while cars are driving on it?"

* "Can I say 'butt'?"

* "When will I turn into a dog?"

Fall Fun

Grandpa and Grandma came up this weekend while Mike was away duck hunting. It was great to have some company for the weekend, and my dad put in a new oven for me. Now I can cook and bake things according to the recipe instead of guessing how far off my oven may be. Thanks, Dad!

My mom and Lily had tons of quality time. Lily did not want to leave Grandma's side. They got a chance to play outside quite a bit on Saturday since the weather was so beautiful. We are really making up for crummy October.
On Sunday afternoon, Mike came home with a couple ducks that still needed to be cleaned. Lily was all excited to help him: she had her "duck" boots and "dirty" clothes on, and she was ready. But this video clearly shows the power of suggestion. All I say is, "Pew," and she suddenly must find out what is gross. (Could it possibly be the raw duck next to her?!) I should just keep my opinions to myself. She can enjoy cleaning ducks if she wants.

Happy Halloween

Here is our Princess trick-or-treating around our neighborhood. She did pretty well considering her plastic high-heeled shoes! I still think she liked handing out the candy even more. We didn't have a ton of kids come to our door, but with Lily handing out huge handfuls, our candy is gone! I guess we can say she is generous.

Here is a picture of Chad and Mike when they went grouse hunting the other day. They didn't get any birds, but had a good time.
