Henry's imagination is on overdrive right now. It leaves me in awe. Sometimes my jaw literally drops. It is amazing to watch the light bulb go off and how he comes alive. It is almost like he gets in a trance and you can't stop it. Fascinating. This photo was sent to me by his teacher this week. He loves playing dress up at school. He may be the cutest Woody on the planet!
Here are some things he has done lately to leave us in stitches:
* Henry has decided he really likes Polar Express and we watched it about 524 times this past weekend. As you know the sad little boy on the train says "Christmas just dosen't work out for me". Well, Saturday when Henry REFUSED to get near Santa at Breakfast With Santa (which we did not even stay and eat bc he was so cranky about it all) he looks at Randall and me with tears and says "Christmas just dont work out with me"...he changed the words up and it was so fitting for the moment. I didnt know if I should laugh or cry. Henry is a sponge with his TV viewing. Never a dull moment with that secret Santa loving boy!
*Henry sat on his fire truck (that is NOT a riding toy) and scooted up to the fireplace and pretended to be at a drive thru. All the sudden we hear him say " I need coffee coffee. 24. 2. no whip. pumpkin. Have a nice day!" and then he scooted away as though he was driving away. We literally bellied over laughing. He mixed our 2 coffee orders together and pretended to order coffee! Randall gets a 24 ounce with 2 shots of espresso. I get a pumpkin latte with no whip cream....and I always say "have a nice day" as I drive off. Neither one of us has gotten coffee in 3 weeks either. That child is a piece of work!
*Henry was pretending to be randall and randall was to pretend to be henry. henry went on about it for almost an hour. It was hysterical. I wish I had recorded it. He put on Randall's ball cap, His Cars bike gloves and acted like he was working on the combine. he then cleaned out his toy box and sat in it and pretended he was in Randall's silver truck. He took Henry to school and told him not to cry. Randall pretended to cry like henry always does at drop off. Henry told him he would not get any french fries when he got home and he better use the potty like a big boy. He then goes and picks him up from school and he had wet pants. he went to the kitchen and got a wooden spoon and spanked him and said "YOU A BAD BOY FOR THAT! No french fries for you!". he then got wipes and tried to wipe R's bottom...it was the funniest thing EVER! He even got his elmo cell phone and talked on the phone just like randall does...said all the things randall says to his guys and called all the guys by first and last name on the phone. We were speechless! The babies are sponges!
*And for some insane reason when he is cold or wet from sweat, rain or the bath he says "It is cold as booty"....embarrassment is an understatement! I try to say "Ice, Henry...ICE" and he will yell back "No, it's booty, mama!" I cant help but laugh. Oh my word...he is gonna be the death of me!
*He loves magazines and catalogs. He will request to see his toy catalog each day and tell us what new things he wants for Christmas. He will always correct us if we put his "MaZaGine" in the wrong spot. Hearing him say "MaZaGine" is the cutest thing ever!
* He prays just like us. It leaves me in awe. The other night at supper I asked him to pray and he said "Dear God thank you for the food and a good day. Amen!" and he always does his prayer hands. How do people NOT tell their babies about Jesus?!
*We have the little tikes nativity set, thanks to Mama Sue allowing us to borrow hers this year. He is obsessed with it. He takes baby Jesus with him everywhere. He also goes into the living room and stares at the ceramic nativity. He is right at eye level with it. I like standing there and watching him stare at it. Christmas through a child's eyes is so enlightening.
