More Ariana and Annika

Since my last post about the things my cute nieces Ari and Anni say, I've heard and remembered a few more.

We were at the store (a few years ago) getting some food and other things when we went down the aisle where the milk is. A lady was there getting milk, she grabbed three or four gallons so Ari said...
  • Lady, don't take all of it!

I tried to tell Ari that there was enough milk for everyone but I was laughing too hard to explain it to her or to really care.

I was just in California with the family, at night my dad would usually tell my nieces bedtime stories. One night Annika walked up to my dad and said...

  • Grandaddy, if you don't tell me a story tonight I'll call you stupid Grandaddy but if you do tell me a story I'll call you King Grandaddy.

Anni really loves story time.

When Ari was a little younger we would watch her and Annika while Kelie and JR were at work. As nice as I usually am and as much as I spoil my nieces, sometimes I had to lay down the law and be an enforcer. When this would happen and I had to tell Ari not to do something, she would always try to think of something smart to say back to me. A few times she really couldn't think of anything right away so after thinking for a few seconds she would say...

  • Oh yeah, well, you're in a wheelchair!

Ari is pretty clever and very good at stating the obvious.

On Ari's birthday Anni was sitting at the table eating breakfast when she said to Kelie...

  • For my birthday when I turn five, I want Robbie to have a sleep over.

How cute are my nieces?

More to come...

It's funny how kids can get away with saying things that no one else ever could.

I wish I could be a kid for a day again. I'd have a lot of things to say to people.

Your sister is one lucky gal to have you to remember all of the sweet memories of her girls. That is awesome! Kids really do just say what is on their minds.
