I have officially begun journaling my blog! See Hannah's blog to see what link will take you to the actual site...it's the neatest thing and super easy! Anyhow, since I've begun doing this,...I've decided I need to do better about writing out some of the things Shepherd says and some of the quirky differences in Shepherd and Rauly. SO....here goes!

We were at Micheals yesterday and the entire store was decorated for Fall and Halloween...there were these huge mummies standing in the aisles and Shepherd asked me what they were. I told him that they were "mummies" and they looked scary but weren't actually real. He then turned to look at the "mummies" and with the most serious and concerned expression, he turned and said to me "NO,...NO mommy!!...that's not a "mommy"...it's a "daddy"!". He was very confused!

Chad's mom (Linda) shared a story with me. She said that one night while they had Shep over and were getting ready for dinner, Shep had seen one of the Wendy's commercials...the theme "Where's the beef?" was said several times and apparently Shepherd heard it. Linda happened to have cooked hamburgers for dinner that night and had Shepherd's buns sitting on his plate but hadn't yet put the meat on. He looked to her and said "Hey! Where's the beef?!"...they of course cracked up!

A few days ago, Shepherd and Rauly were over at Dennis and Linda's house and Dennis was under their house fixing the floor in their bathroom. They had to move their toilet (don't ask...) and so the pipe that runs from the toilet to underneath the house was exposed and Shep could hear Dennis talking to him but couldn't figure out where his voice was coming from. Linda tried to explain that Peepaw was under the house and that his voice was coming through the pipe, but Shepherd immediately walked over to the toilet, lifted the lid and yelled for Peepaw to "get outa' there!". lol!!!

Differences in the kiddo's:
The poem "Jack sprat could eat no fat, his wife could eat no lean...so between them both you see, they picked the platter clean." totally applies to my kids! It's really kind of weird! If I fix pizza, Shepherd will eat the crust, Rauly will eat the pepperoni. If we eat chicken and french fries,...Shepherd eats the chicken, Rauly eats the french fries. If I fix a fruit salad,...Shepherd picks the bananas and grapes out, Rauly will eat the apples and strawberries. Seriousely - they always eat just the oppossite of what the other one is eating!!

Shepherd talks 90 to nothin' ALL DAY LONG! Rauly is the quietest child I've ever seen...unless of course she's throwing a fit - then her screams are blood curdling. Seriousely though, many people have commented that Rauly is extremely quiet...normally it's the girl who's the talker.

Rauly is my introverted child - Shepherd is my extroverted child. Wonder what our third will be like?!

"Wonder what our third will be like?!"...Linds, is there something you need to tell us? :)

Lindsey said...

Ha HA!!! Absolutely not!! Sorry Kristy...I read your comment and realized that statement sounded susupicious - but trust me - there shouldn't be a third baby Eason for a while...unless of course God plans otherwise! :)

You will so treasure these stories in the future, Linds! I can't wait to get together as old ladies to crochet afgans and to look back at our blog books together!

i love your stories about how your kids are different... caroline is only 9 mos. old, but i can already see that she and ethan are SO DIFFERENT! though i will say that ethan will NOT be giving up his french fries for anybody, even sweet caroline. :)

hope your christmas project continues to go well.

ok, i have a silly request. i don't know if you're intentionally not titling your blog posts recently, but i have this handy dandy feed reader, and i can just sit and read everybody's blogs w/out having to actually GO to them (ya know, while i've got my feet propped up on the couch eating bon-bons??)... but if the post doesn't have a title, it throws a kink in my efficient blog-reading-ness.... if you have a good reason for not titling your posts, go on with your non-titles, and i can read your blog the "old-fashioned way" (ha!). but for this blog-journal of yours, you might want titles anyway. so just thought i'd mention it....

Oh, those stories are hilarious! Especially Shep looking down the toilet....I so look forward to that one day!

Lindsey said...

Hey Emily - How do you put titles on there? I've actually tried to figure that out before and couldn't...any suggestions?

I like the idea baout journaling your blog. It's a great way for someone like me (super busy, and not creative) to put together a keepsake for your family. I'll have to check it out.
I love the stories about the kids, I can't wait to see differnces between Austin and the future kid or kids that we may have!

Gotta say Lindsey- Kristy's comment was the first thing I thought too! Glad I checked out your comment below hers! Angela

I thought the same thing-wondered if I had missed some big announcement about a 3rd Eason!
BTW-love Shep's first day of school pictures! Its crazy how fast they grow!!

Mom said...

Cute pics of Shep on his first day of school. I know he was so excited and it doesn't sound like he was disappointed! :) Of course, I love the comments about the things they say...hilarious! and also their differences! I'm glad you'll have a blog hx book to look back on! Great idea!
