Here's a year-ender for you: "If you eat your broccoli, you can dump this cup of water on my head." (Wow, that broccoli disappeared in a FLASH!! :=D ) 12/30/09

Some cute Zach-isms:

-While playing with Daddy, Zach announces that he wants a fancy donut. "What's a fancy donut?" "It's a rectangle and..... shaped like a trumpet!"

- Getting ready for bed : "I want one piece of pajamas." (meaning one-piece pajamas)

- Zach creatively - and logically - refers to a compact fluorescent lightbulb as a "tangled lightbulb."

- Zach very much enjoyed music class with Mrs. (Tara) Smith, drumming, singing songs about frogs & bees & turtles, and jumping on her mini trampoline!

- Zach is a VERY inquisitive little boy!! "What's in bread?" "What's in cashews?" "What animal does broccoli come from?" "Why?" "Why?" "Why??"

- Ivyland New Church's Christmas Tableaux (pageant) were held on the Sunday before Christmas -- one day after a big snow storm. Not many people made it to church, giving Zach the chance to assume almost any role in the pageant. He isn't a 'public' person, apparently: he was quite happy helping Daddy with the lights.


- Zach is a star traveler. As we drove home from Grammy & Grampa's in Toronto, after Christmas, he sang to himself: "Clouds, clouds, clouds,... Gray clouds, gray clouds,... Gray clouds up there,..." "Grammy & Grampa, Grammy & Grampa, ... <which morphed into> Grammy & Grampa to you, Grammy & Grampa to you, Grammy & Grampa to you-ou, Grammy & Grampa to you..." :=)
