If mom says "no," she means it. If dad says "no," it means maybe. Joseph, age 13
You can't push away your conscience. Christopher, age 12

The world is a wonderful place and everyone should shut up and enjoy it every once in a while. Sarah, age 12
Melanie has a "Catch Phrase" music game. Every time one of my favorite songs would come up I'd just freeze. Couldn't think, couldn't get the lyrics...I'd just sit frozen. I had "Bust a Move" and "Me and Bobby McGee" come up and I just couldn't get it out. ---the funniest was Amy who would put her hand over her mouth and whispered "ssshhhhitt" for about the first 5 or six rounds.
The mind connection between Eric and Martin was a bit eerie. ....and they certainly know their ballads well.
Flarp really does sound like farting.
A 2 year old should not be left alone with a black marker. (My exercise ball is lovely)
Mel can hang with the Big Dogs (Eric and Delane) on Guitar Hero. I will never get off easy level with the easy songs.
Toonces and I are not meant to win the Newlywed Game.
Neither are my parents. They can't even remember back to times that some of the questions ask about. 44 years will do that to you. Caleb had to help Papa with his answers. Actually Caleb did pretty well and knew their toothbrush colors.
Toonces and I do know the color of each other's toothbrush and his first pick up line and his best friends. He apparently thinks I don't use enough spices in my chicken pie. .....ask us about the house, finances, back to dating times..sure, but ask him how I think and forget it. To make it worse mom would side with him saying "Well honey his answer does make more sense." Sense to whom mom? It is me you are talking about. Or we both have an answer that is correct but we don't match. And for reasons unknownst to me, suddenly last night is the only night out of 365 nights that T doesn't remember that I don't discipline the pets enough. I suppose we don't do well under pressure.
Delane and Amy are grossly in sync. Mushy yucky sync. You could say when was the last time your wife did something nice and Delane would say "Oh she stopped and rescued a little kitten on the side of the road coming over here." Or you could ask Amy how many calls Delane got on average at work and she would say 42 and sure enough Delane would have 42.
Their 10 year anniversary is in March...so really we are very happy they are still so lovey and in sync.
Toonces just will not give the right answers.
One of the questions was who is your husband's favorite cowgirl? Weird to start with right? Of course Mr. and Mrs. In Sync Mushies get the little cowgirl from Toy Story. Mama can't even think of a cowgirl but Caleb and Papa picked Sharon Stone in "The Quick and The Dead.". Melanie named Selma Hayek from Banderas but Eric picked Martina McBride....I was thinking that since Toonces was a product of the 70s he would only know one cowgirl and so when I said I went "old school" he thought we had that one. But his old school favorite cowgirl was Dale Evans. I put Debbie, as in Debbie Does Dallas.
No I have never seen the movie but it is a very famous title, and she is a very famous cowgirl among guys Toonces's age.
So much for that. The parents start scrambling for the kids and covering their ears before Aunt Dee spits out any other phrase they might not should know.
The prize bowl emptied throughout the night and hopefully everyone went home with lots of goodies....and possibly TOO MUCH INFORMATION about each other.

In the following video clip (pretty short) Seth thinks he is hooked to the Nintendo playing Star Wars too and thinks he is killing Ben's men. Then he takes a bite out of my coaster thinking it is a cookie. Next Seth and Jackson perform "Don't Cha"...notice Ben doesn't miss a beat with his game and just ignores Seth.
Later the pooting starts up and the house gets rowdy! It's a Party!
