Big Bird

This Youtube video has nothing to do with Stockton's comments but I thought it was funny. Anyway the other day Stockton says, "Mommy, if Big Bird was real can you even imagine how many people he would feed?" Well I have to admit even in my sick childhood I never thought of eating Big Bird but you have to agree with Stockton, that's a lot of meat. Who teaches my kids these things? LOL

Stockton upset with his Daddy.

Stockton is a quick thinker. Here is what happened today.

Austin- Stockton, I am going to tell Santa Clause to not bring you anything this year. You are being a really big pill. 

Stockton- No you are not Daddy. I'm going to tell Santa Clause to not bring you anything cause you have been really bad. 

Austin- That's good son because Daddy doesn't want anything from Santa Clause. 

Stockton- (Now he is real serious and is not whining.) "Daddy What is your most favorite thing." (I know where he is going with this). 

Austin- So I tell him, Why Stockton you are my most favorite thing. 

Stockton- Well, Daddy, I was going to give you an identical (where did he learn the word identical) robot of me for Christmas to be your servant but now because of the way you are acting I am no longer going to give you that robot. 

Oh my little Stockton. He is such a crack up. I love him so much. Dang too because I really needed that little robot for Christmas. I guess I'll have to be a little better from here on out. LOL. 


So, Monday night being "Family Night"  we decided for part of it we would take the kids to a walkway overpass- I have NO idea what you call them- but you know what I mean, right? It is the walkway that goes over the road- Anyway, my kids have been asking me all summer if I would take them, and every time I thought it would be a good time, it never worked out ( crying, tired babies, or having to hurry and get somewhere else) Well, we finally did it.  And much to the disappointment to Stockton!!!

 I wanted to surprise the boys because all too often I find myself telling the boys we are going to do something, and then for some reason or another if falls through.  Austin kept telling the boys to hurry and get ready because we were going to go for a ride.  Stockton took this literally!  When we pulled up he was excited but when we went to leave is when the drama started.

Stockton- This is the worst ride ever!
Me- What's wrong, I thought you'd be excited, you've wanted to do this forever.
Stock- I thought we were going on a roller coaster.
Me- Ohhh, I'm sorry Stock, when we said "ride" we meant to go somewhere in the car.
Stock- This really is the worst ride ever- now with tears freely flowing.

After we all got in the car to head home- the drama continued. :)

Stock- Dad, when you die- I am going to go to that place where they put you and take your wallet.
Austin- what?
Stock- Yep, when you die I am going to take your wallet so I can do whatever I want to when I want.
Austin- Well, I am pretty sure when I die, your mom gets my wallet.
Stock- Well then when you die and when mom dies and when Staley dies but not Kenzlie
Staley- Stockton will you please stop, you are making me sad.
Stock- Ok well nobody has to die, but can I have your wallet and then I will give you money for what you need... I wish I was in Grandma Parry's stomach first before mom then I could be in charge...

.....and he kept going...and going. :)

Holy Cow- I think he was tired.

This was all in about a 10 minute span.  Funny thing is about 5 minutes later I asked him if he was done throwing his tantrum and he acted like he had no clue what I was talking about.  This is SO typical of Stockton, and not too uncommon in the Binks home :)

Gotta love my boys!

Now tell me that's not random. :)

Remember When.... Chicken & Rooster

My cute little sister Coley, printed a book of her blog a little while ago, and let me just tell you how much I love it!! I SO love it. So, because this is my "journal" I really wanted to incorporate the old with the new- hence my title Remember When... I want to start sharing so many of my memories before my blogging adventure started. So I will start picking random pictures and videos to share... so we will always remember them  when I finally print out my book!:)

So the adventure starts now. :)

Remember When....

October 2007- Halloween

Ok, I have to admit, this was the funniest Halloween ever. So, me, trying to be super thrifty- thought it would be the perfect idea to take the kids to Kid To Kid and let them pick out their own costumes...BAD idea. Staley found this horrific rooster costume which he completely fell in love with the minute he saw it! I was at the point in my life where I was really trying not to make all the decisions for my boys, but really value their opinion- Needless to say, this is how it turned out! :)

Funny thing is...last year we had our first ever yard sale...Staley wore this costume all day, and it was a hot day...by the end of the sale a girl was driving by, saw Staley and asked if he would sale his rooster costume...with much negotiation- he sold it for 5 bucks.  I have to tell you I don't miss it so much!

Oh how I love my boys!!

Cute Family

Go on.. tell me I have the cutest kids ever... go on, just tell me. :) I LOVE my babies. I am grateful for every single one of them. I love how they are so different, but yet so similar. I am so, so lucky!!
