Cute Quotes

Yesterday evening Susannah was getting some food ready for Jessica and Cassia to eat on the way to town.  Noah and Isaiah were asking her why she was putting the food in little containers.  Susannah told them, “So they can eat on the road.”

Noah was a little confused.  He asked, “You mean they’re going to eat, on the road?

“But then a car will run over them!” said Isaiah.

So then Susannah explained to them that the girls were going to eat in the van while going down the road 😀

We have a door in the back of our sunroom that at this time, goes to nowhere.  Actually, it goes outside, but their are no steps so we don’t use it much, and we discourage the little people from going in and out of it to cut down on flies and bugs 🙂  The little people like using it because it is a short way to get to the backyard.

One day when Charissa was 5 years old, she asked Leah if she could go out that door.  Leah said no, and so Charissa asked, “What is that door for?”

Leah just said that she didn’t know.  Then Charissa said “Oh, prob’ly for when somebody opens the door to tell somebody ‘don’t do that?'”

She was very used to us using that door to holler out at somebody to “stop doing that” or “don’t do that”, so from then on we started to jokingly refer to that door as the “don’t do that door” 😀

Today Isaiah went up in the attic with one of the girls and noticed our Christmas decorations that we store up there.  He told Susannah “There’s a lot of neat stuff up there!  Is it Christmastime up there?”

Note: The Seven Sisters Treasures is a weekly post where we share some of our favorite things and we try to post a new one every Friday. Hope you enjoy!  ~The Farmgirls

    How did you manage to get your flag thing on the side? There seems to be nowhere to paste codes.

      If you go to your dashboard, click on “appearance” (on the left side) and then on “widgets”. Drag what availble widgets you want to the sidebar…use “text” for putting in codes and such.

      Hope this helps! 🙂
