the latest from grace and the rest of us


Grace continues to surprise me with the crazy things she says. Here are two of her latest:
1. I told her this morning that President Hinckley passed away last night. Her response, "Oh no! Not Again!"
2. Later on this morning she informed me that she really, truly does need a "transmographier." Thanks Calvin, Thanks Hobbes.

Life has been very busy. Nate has been working obscene hours and many weeks has only seen the kids a few times. He is so tired and so am I. My church responsibilities have been a bit overwhelming lately as well, but things seem to be calming down. And of course, like many of you I am sure, we've been fighting off (though unsuccessfully) Bad Colds. I can tell you at least how grateful I am to Tylenol and Sudafed. Gracie turns 6 this Wednesday and around that time Nate's schedule should become more "normal" again (meaning we'll get to see him sometimes). Until then, I think I'll just laugh at the Gracisms and enjoy Jimmy's silly antics.

Ahem. That's "transmogrifier".

It's development can be traced back to this:

I couldn't think of a response to Gracie's perspective on death. But Firesign Theater did:

"I know not what course others may take, but as for me: give me immortality or give me death!"

As for real transmogrification (at least in terms of appearance):

Otherwise, just watch grownups get older. (OH no, not again!)

Grace is so funny! I especially love her "when I am kissed by a boy" statement, although you'd better watch out Mama!
