Family Dinner

As we sat down for dinner tonight Drew was laughing about something when Cory asked, "Hey 'Laughing Boy', will you say the blessing on the food?'"  Before Drew could start, however, I observed, "You know, Dad would have been good at naming Native Americans."  We chuckled, Drew prayed, and then Cory turned to Samantha, "Hey 'Runs on Gravel', how was church today?"
"It was fine," she answered.
Then, turning to me he inquired, "How about you, 'Blogs With Rabbits', did you go to your new class?"
"No, not until next week," I replied.
As Samantha slurped up a final spoonful of soup she asked, "Is there more soup or is it all gone?"
"Well,"  I began, "I gave most of it to 'Grunts When Poops' but I think there's a little left."



We don't have a lot of friends.

Ha Ha Ha! I'm pretty sure this is why the professionals encourage family dinners.

We live right in the middle of a Navajo reservation--my husband actually works for the Navajo Nation--and we've met the coolest people with the best names. My son's substitute last week was Mrs. Yellowhorse, and our neighbors are the Smallcanyons. It's awesome.

Sorry about having to live with Grunts.

We have family dinners that are just as random.... the only difference would be that we would have laughed through the prayer :/

I LOVE your blog, but don't think I've ever commented. I had to comment on this one, though, because I just had two coworkers come into my office to find out why I was laughing so hysterically! You brighten my day! :)
