Finnanigans

Our family suffered a huge loss this past week with the passing of our grandmother. She was the anchor of our family. I intend to write about her soon, but I need a little time. It's so hard to even begin to tell you about her life and the light that she was without breaking down. We will miss her intensely.

I thought our family could use a few smiles, so I'm posting some Finnanigans.


:: Mom, what if when we're done eating, our food went up to heaven.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Note: Our neighbor has beautifully restored an antique car from the 1920's.

:: There's our neighbor's car again...the one from the 80's or the 50's.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
:: [Talking about his favorite Halloween candy] I love Milk Dubs and Jolly Rangers!

[After sorting all of his Halloween candy] Mom, that pile of candy over there is candy that I don't like that much, so I'm just going to eat it to get rid of it.
Nice, try!  
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
:: Popcorn is something that hibernates in your teeth.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

:: [Talking about Lego Camp] Mom, our instructor knows every single Lego there is, except for a few.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

:: Audrie, why do you want to do cheerleading? Cheerleading is just dancing with your legs up!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
::  Me: Hey kids, go pack your bags for our trip, and only pack what you need because we don't have a lot of room in the car!
After arriving to our destination...
Me: Finn, why did you pack an astronaut suit?
Finn: Well, I thought I might wear it.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
And we can't leave Audrie out...

:: Me: Who is Attila the Hun
  Audrie: Well....she is....a man.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Death stinks. Having cute kids sure makes death easier to go through though. My Eva still talks about her grandpa a lot and I love it because sometimes we don't talk about him because it is painful but it is so natural and normal for her and I love that she reminds us to keep talking about him and that it's ok to miss him and grieve him still. I hope you can find peace and comfort. xo
