Quote Board

Last year in Jillian's dorm they started a "quote board" where they would write down any crazy, random or witty things everyone said. It became quite the extensive post-it decoration in their kitchen.
In December when Jill was home for Christmas, she began a similar post-it quote board in my kitchen. It's hilarious. We've only added to it a couple of times since she went back to school, but I'm going to be more diligent about it this week. It always makes me smile...here are a few examples:
Jill: "Rock, paper, scissors!"
Grace: "You can't believe we're SISTERS!?"

Ryan: "You souped my pants!"

Jill: "I'm so serious sometimes?"
Grace: "Add an M E to that."
Jill: "What?"
Grace: "You are so MEsterious sometimes!"

Tyler: "I told you...don't let Snickers blow on your pigs!"

Mom: "Ok, I have my goat cheese and shavings ready so I can concentrate now."

Tyler: "I can't believe I'm dressed as a girl again!"

Mom: (on the way to taking Ry to road range) "Look! Cows!"
Grace: "It's MOOTASTICAL!"

Grace: "And then maybe robbers from Spain will come..."

Jill: "Where is your imagination, little girl?"
Grace: "I don't know...I gave it to the homeless people."

Mom: "We literally have enough sour cream to last us through the apocalypse."

Ty to Ry: "You can farm WHILE we watch Everwood!"

We sound nuts. But at the time, each of these little quotes made perfect sense!

Love the one about MEsterious! Such a fun idea! Though, I don't get most of them, it's not for me to get. What a fun family!
