Quotes of the Week

Usually we cut up whatever we are eating for dinner and give it to Lydia to eat in her high chair, but yesterday we were eating barbecue chicken and it was really messy, so I got some turkey sandwich-meat and broke it into little pieces and put it on her tray. Since it was really slippery she dropped a piece and it went down her shirt.
Stephen: "Well that gives turkey breast a whole new meaning." 

Stephen and I were reading 1 Nephi 8:11 in the Book of Mormon,
"And it came to pass that I did go forth and partake of the fruit thereof; and I beheld that it was most sweet, above all that I ever before tasted. Yea, and I beheld that the fruit thereof was white, to exceed all the whiteness that I had ever seen." (Emphasis added)
Stephen: "Oh. So the fruit looked like Lydia."
