Amusing lines from the little ones recently...
- Becky: "I love you as much as the earth! And you love me and the moon the same gallon!"
- Sarah to Ben at the dinner table: "Are you getting gas after dinner?" (Ben ponders the gauge on his dashboard.) "Because you may be eating more than your appetite. Does your stomach hurt at all? No? Well, I'll ask again later."

- Sarah: "My feet smell as clean as butter! I love butter."
