We Call Her Kate the Great

Five reasons I love this sunshine:
1) She calls giraffes: bjraffes.
2) She plays quiet creative games by herself for hours (which usually includes using tissue to make dresses for her little figurines).
3) She can burp the alphabet (which is not something we generally do in our family, but one day at dinner she said "I can burp the alphabet" and then she did and then we sat there in stunned silence and then we started laughing).
4) She has the best laugh in the world- a deep belly chuckle!
5) She learned to ride a bike in 30 seconds.  She definitely holds the family record (and she saved my back hours of running behind a bike bent over).

And Where Was the Mother You Ask?

Have you ever wondered what happens when you put bottles of food coloring in the microwave?

Katie and Nathan discovered exactly what happens. 

What possessed them to get a chair, get on the counter, get into the deepest farthest reaches on the spice cabinet, get the food coloring, put it in the microwave and actually start the microwave, I can only wonder.  In amazement. 
PS I was using the restroom. 

PPS I wasn't even reading a book or anything.

PPPS This all happened before 8:15 in the morning.  Sigh.
