Nephews Evan and Graham

Another bright spot today was getting to see my nephew Jeff, his wife, Dana, and their two boys, Evan, 3, and Graham, 10 months.  They live in Evansville, IN, and we don't get to see them very often.  It was late last night when they got to my mom's house.  The boys are so cute.  Evan is a very bright boy, and I think Jeff and Dana will have their hands full keeping one step ahead of him.

Out of the Mouth of Babes:   Evan asked me to do something, and I told him I couldn't because I was old.  He immediately went over to Mom's piano, asked if I wanted to hear him play, and said I could sit on the bench because I was old.  We all agreed that I walked into that one.

Jeff said they boys never have shoes or socks on.  Before he can put the second sock on them, they have the first one off.  And putting shoes on to keep the socks on is a joke.  When they were getting ready to leave, I put socks on Graham twice in 30 seconds.  Jeff just wrapped his bare feet in a blanket in his carseat, and took him out to the car.  I think he's done this before.

  1. Oh my gosh, they are the cutest boys ever! I'm with them on the barefoot thing, though. I think you should just give up. LOL

  2. Oh my goodness they are just the cutest ever! The sock thing will be cured by allowing them to walk outdoors without socks and shoes they will want them next time for sure! At work children are always telling me they don't want mittens but believe me by the time we get outside for 3mins they are asking for them on!
