the unblogables

Guess why I always blog about Louisa... Because whenever anyone else in the family does something blogable, I hear, "Don't put that on your blog!" They are even hiding things from me just so I won't tell the world about them. And they duck when I want to take their pictures. Two of them even came in just now and deleted this while I went to tuck in Lou. I came back and the only words on the screen were, "Jonah is too cool for everybody."

Why don't they want their whole life out there for cyber world to see?

I'm sure I'll never know.

New Song

I've been looking for ways to stop all the fighting in the house. While Louisa was telling me the horrors of her brother at the top of her lungs, I asked her if she knew this song...

Jesus said love everyone,
Treat them kindly too.
When the world is full of love,
Others will love you!

Then Jonah came in complaining about her.

She started singing, substituting her own words and tune.

Jesus said love everyone.
Treat them kindly too.
Even when you don't like their face,
be nice because you'll get used to it.

Dog days

Ever since she could wiggle out of her clothes, Louisa has been dressing up and changing clothes. When her friends come over, she dresses them up too. The funniest was Trevor with the princess dress. (His dad will not forgive me if I post that) This is what happened when Cheri came for a visit.




Whoever knows this dog will agree that even though she looks cute, she is NOT happy.

One more thing to be late to...

Because our lives are not chaotic enough, we signed Louisa up for piano lessons. To say she is excited would be a gross understatement. She practices more than she needs to and wants to learn everything all in one day. She was practicing with her dad and he was reminding her about the dynamics.

Dad: What does the p mean?

Lou: (reading) p-p-e-e-a-a-a-n-n-o... I know! Piano! Play it soft.

Dad: good! What does the f mean?

Lou: (reading again) f-f-a-r-r-t... fart? Play it loud?

Brothers: (hysterical laughter in the background)

Lou: what?
