twittericonToday Elliot was watching ESPN while Finn was in bed. There was bleeped profanity. Finn walked in and said "The swearing attracted me."

twittericonFinn just said "Elliot, I know how to get a girl when you are teenager. Give her a compliment and then walk away." - Too much iCarly!

Finn was recently the student of the week in his class, and here is the information sheet that he filled out about himself:


Two Recent Drawings by Finn



Two Recent Drawings by Elliot



InFINNity and DNA

The other night I told Finn that he should change his nickname from “Finnster Malone Big Apple Bagel” to “inFINNity” and sign his name with the infinity symbol.  I described how to draw the symbol.  He grabbed a pen and paper and drew it.  Then he expanded on the drawing and said, “If I draw these lines, then it looks like DNA.”

Here is the drawing:


I asked him where he learned what DNA looks like.  He said, “From a TV show.”  At least he is learning more than just how to get a girl when you are a teenager.

"Do you ever get the feeling that you want to tell everyone in the whole world that you love them?  I usually feel like that - kind of all soft in the tummy like milk."

Nerf Gun Battle Christmas Evening

The boys had a kids vs. adults dart gun battle Christmas evening in the grandparents’ basement.  This is a common activity at Grandma/Grandpa B’s house, but this time was unusual because I participated too.  Each round you were out if you took two hits.  Here are some photos and a video:
