The Audrey III

The other day Andrew came in the house and wanted to show us an "Evil Plant." He had picked one of our flowers and said it had teeth and was just like the one from the plant show, aka Little Shop of Horrors. The resemblance was amazing. Trent wasn't too happy about him picking our flowers, but I thought it was a funny comparison. At least Andrew thinks the plant is evil and not the hero of the show...
This morning Andrew came running in and told me to come look at the evil plant. I came out to see one of the Audrey's had blossomed. I told the kids it was so pretty and they said no, it was evil. I love the way their minds work...

How cute! You must have so many fun conversations at your house with your kids at the fun ages they are!

Amber said...

that is so funny! It actually does look a "little evil" Andrew is pretty observant! I love that even after it bloomed it was still evil!

Okay, first of all - what happened to your knee?! I'm sorry you're out of commission... A week is plenty of time to get better, right?

And I think you should share how Andrew and Aiden refer to Paige and Morgan as their babies. Jill was telling me about this the other day and I thought it was hilarious. Whose baby is whose?

Trent said...

I just love that everything that our kids expreience is related to something in a movie. I'm planning on some kind of penalty after this life for melting our kids minds with worldly entertainment.

Trent said...

Speaking of movie references, is that the muppet Animal or Oakley standing next to Aiden?

Trent is hilarious! And so are your kids!!! Your backyard is so pretty, you have a nice camera, and I am SO sorry about your knee. I hurt mine as well, SO ANNOYING!!! Hopefully you will feel better before the race.

LOL! Trent's comment about Oakley is hilarious!!!

And how long have you had this new blog background? I love it.

That hat is not going back. Love it and love the $6 price tag.

SO FUNNY that Andres thinks you guys have Audrey 3 growing in your yard. Only kids could think of that.

Funny that they know about that lil shop of horrors plant. Cool looking plant with a striking resemblance. Is it one of those mondo Poppies? Very cool. Nice close-up.
