Crazy Things I've Heard (Long Overdue!)

Drew - Draw me with armpit hair. (Edward drawing family members for Lucy)

Drew - Does anyone have a tranquilizer gun?  (Talking about Lucy screaming on a long car trip)

Drew - I'm on a reading diet this summer.

Drew - Lucy snores when she's awake.

Elizabeth - She can throw her colon like a ventriloquist throws his voice.

Elizabeth - If I bend over my underwear is going to go into my kidney.

Elizabeth - I don't want a fancy fish. Fancy fish are all snobby.

Mallory - It makes me want to throw up of joy!

Mallory - My foot smells like water.

Mallory - (Telling me about a 2 year-old boy that didn't cry when getting shots) - Does he have metal
in his body or something? 

Mallory - Drew. Here is your surprise. Bleeding sauce! Just put it on your arm and rub it around and around.

Mallory - He whistles like an angel.

Mallory - Mom? Is this a bear or Jesus?

Lucy - Mom, do I look like a hobo or a princess?

In Primary, our Children's Church, the teacher said, "Jesus healed the sick and raised the dead." Little girl - "That's gross."

2013 in Photos

It's really hard to choose one favorite image from each month of 2013!  But here are a few of my favorites:
January:  Aaron and Grandma Rowe at her 100th birthday celebration

April:  The gang is back together with Mary Catherine's quick trip home from college.

May:  Disney World
June:  JTC II
 July:  Family Reunion Pool Party

August:  Sisters

September:  Amelia

October:  Trick or Treat

November:  Fall Family photos

2013 was a great year for the Felker family.  Looking back, what made it a great year was family! 

Christmas 2013

 So Drew.

Christmas with the Wrights

Christmas morning

 Lucy would have been excited with anything she got this year.
 Despite the unenthused face, a digital clock was at the top of Mallory's wish list, and she was very happy that Santa came through for her!

 A mini trampoline was her biggest wish.
And airsoft gun was at the top of Drew's list.  And yes, we've set some rules on its use!
 I don't know too many kids that ask for socks for Christmas!

 Nothing too extravagant for Elizabeth this year.  Just clothes and other girly things.  Yep.  Almost a teenager.

 And Ross wanted his own wrestling mats this year.  Because they were triple the amount we spend per person on Christmas, we told him there was absolutely no way that would be happening.  It turns out some special elves have a great connection with Santa and pulled off a huge surprise.

 Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from this crazy bunch!

Lucy Turns Three!

This sweet and sassy blue-eyed blondie is three!  We celebrated Miss Lucy with a little party with Grammy and Grandad and the Waddells.
