Ali-ism; Half Egyptian

For the past few days, I've been working on getting the curriculum for next year's homeschool.  I mentioned to our (nearly) fifteen year old daughter - she would be going into a different history next year, starting over from the beginning ~ and she replied with:

I'm not going back through Ancient Egypt again, right?  Really, Mom, please tell me I don't have to do more Egyptian studies!  I've already been through it twice and I just don't think I can take more Egypt.  For crying out loud Mom, I'm half Egyptian already - look frontalism (as she physically posed for me)!

I laughed so hard my eyes were watering.  She says some of the funniest things, without even trying.  I love that about her!  Thanks for the laugh, Ali!

Sisterly Kisses

Totally over exposed, but I just love the way it turned out! 
I'm so blessed, despite the difference in their age ~ they are each other's BFF!  Thank you Jesus!

Ali's First Homemade Cake

Chocolate cake, with a chocolate cream filling, and chocolate frosting -

made by Ali...


(by the way - this was her very first cake from scratch, I think she did great!)

Ali-ism; Comet Breath

A short story to tell - an Ali'ism, but first - a bit of a preface...

We've switched toothpaste. From Crest to Tom's, and from Tom's to a completely all natural herbal paste; one Ali hasn't liked, up to this point.

So Ali and I take a quick trip to the store the other day ~ by ourselves ~ to get ... something.

The next several lines encompass the short conversation that happened:

Me: Are you getting more accustomed to the new toothpaste?

Ali: Yeah, it's much better.

Me: I admit - it takes a bit to get used to, but once adjusted I really like it.

Ali: I agree - as a matter of fact I woke up this morning and noticed I didn't have "Comet breath".

Me: What? 

Ali: Uuuuhhh....

Me: What breath? Comet breath?

Ali: Uh, yeah...

Me: Do you mean moose breath?

Ali: Oh, yes - MOOSE BREATH.

Me: Where did Comet breath come from?

Ali: I was thinking about the reindeer, you know; COMET, and Cupid, and Donner...

Laughter filled the car ~ for the rest of the ride.
