6/18 - Talking at the dinner table about what something tasted like.  Mommy: "My tongue said [it was yummy]."  Jonathan:"My tongue said, too." Noah: "My tongue said, one!"

6/25 - Fire safety lesson.  We learned about Stop, Drop, and Roll.  What a fun thing to teach!  We've also been discussing what to do if there's a house fire and what to say if you have to call 911.  Jonathan knows Daddy's cell phone number and our street address.  He also can recall our home number if he gives it some thought, but Daddy's cell comes quickly to mind.

6/28 - Noah's third birthday!  Since it was on a Sunday, the church sang to him, which was more embarrassing to him than I would have guessed.  When Paul asked him how old he was, he said, "one."  But after some coaching throughout the day, he now says, "'ee!"  The Weavers came over for chips and salsa (Noah's requested birthday dinner) and cake and ice cream.  There was lots of crazy fun, including a rubber band fight, swinging, and a football game in the backyard.  After that, Noah had a couple of phone calls but was falling asleep while talking to Grandma and Dad-o, so he took a nap.  Jonathan woke him up for dinner but he was too sleepy to eat.  After that, he opened presents, which was quite fun and woke him up thoroughly.  Pictures will come sometime.  We measured Noah on the height chart (a birthday tradition here) and he is just over 40" tall, which is only an inch shorter than Jonathan was at four years.

6/28 - Sometime in the evening, when the boys were playing with the presents and Mommy was cleaning up, I noticed Faith sitting up on the corner of the coffee table.  After the suspects were questioned, it was determined that Faith had crawled up there herself with the help of a box the presents had been in.

6/29 - Jonathan and Noah were playing Star Wars.  Jonathan said, "I'm Obi Wan."  Noah said, "Me not Obi Wan, me Obi Three!"

Picturing Noah's birthday afternoon, it helps to know that inviting the Weavers over pretty much means inviting a whole football team by themselves. Even if only half of them came, it must have been wild.

They all came, except Kara, who is off at college. It was also helpful to have them eat the multitudes of cupcakes I had made. (My friend gave me some batter for Amish Friendship Bread and I decided to make it all into cake instead of keeping/giving batter, and it made a large sheet cake plus 50 cupcakes.)

sounds like a fun birthday! I'm looking forward to Maddie's birthday in a few weeks. I'm pretty sure Sammi is about 41 inches tall and she's almost 5! I didn't realize Noah was so tall! That's great you were able to use the batter in such a creative way! :) Cupcakes sound good.

By the way, in this article and many others, Noah quotes are more funny if you say them out loud to yourself to get an idea of what it was like in real life. I usually find him hilarious and it doesn't show as well on the blog.
