the interview.

try as I might, I can't seem to get my act together to have a post ready for Monday morning.  it seems like lately there has been something going on every Sunday, and as soon as nighttime rolls around, I can't see beyond simply collapsing into bed.  this past Sunday evening we had a house full of company, not that I'm complaining.  if I had to choose between visiting with friends or typing up a blog post... well, that's a no-brainer.  hands down, friends win.  every.single.time.  and it was a very enjoyable evening indeed-- I loved every minute of it (hint, hint. we love company.)

okay, so.  Hannah and Jake return home exactly one week from today.  out of curiosity, I interviewed the rest of the kids a few days ago to find out whether or not they've missed them, and if they're anxious for them to come home.

here's what they had to say:

Chloe: "not really.  it's a lot easier to babysit when they're not here because Hannah usually bosses us around and Jake always teases everyone."  then she paused for a moment before adding, "well, maybe I kind of miss them." (I think she's enjoyed being "queen bee.")

Myra: "NO!" (said quite emphatically) "well, hee hee, actually I miss Hannah.  but only a little."

Sawyer (shrugs shoulders): "ummm, I don't know.  kind of.  but I don't miss Jake's nasty farts."  like, who would?

Ella: smiles shyly and nods head "yes."

Phoebe (laughing): "I don't know.  I guess, yeah."

Rowan (grinning from ear to ear): "no.  can I jump on the tramp?" (something tells me he doesn't quite get it.)

Scarlett: giggles. (although since Hannah's been away, she has taken to liking me again :-)

out of the mouths of babes, there you have it.

and now for the million dollar question: do Hannah and Jake miss their siblings?

I wonder.


PS. random photos taken with my phone.
