A funny kid story:

Okay, just one more story before I get back to work!!

Our little niece, Courtney (age 9) was sitting in the backseat of the truck on our way home from a shopping spree. My mom was in the backseat with her and my mom said: “Courtney, do you like reading books?”
“Yeah”, she says with a big smile. “What kind of books do you like?” “I like mystery novels.” My mom says, “Oh, do you like Sherholmes Lock?” To this, Courtney gives her the funniest look ever and says, “You mean Sherlock Holmes?” and the two of them burst out into laughter and they didn’t’ stop laughing until we got home. Guess it’s one of those “you had to be there” moments, but I thought it was too cute.

I love that kid! She’s got so much character and so much spunk. The kid just LOVES dinner rolls because she can’t eat that kind of stuff at home since her sister is allergic to gluten products. Courtney was over here one day and at the meal this little waif-like thing ate FOUR dinner rolls! It’s funny to watch her as she really, really enjoys her food! (Funny, because apparently she’s a picky eater, but we never have problems feeding her!) LOL! Anyway, she slathers butter all over her rolls. She had butter all over her face! (Remember, these are hardworking, outdoorsy country kids and they burn calories like crazy!). We said, “Hey Courtney! Would you like some bread with your butter?” instead of butter with her bread…she had it all over her face! Too cute! What a kooky kid! She and her sister just love coming to our house. We even have a room for them when they stay here and they call it ‘their’ room. When we have kids, I hope they’re as good as Courtney and Elizabeth. These kids are awesome!
