Oh...Alexis

Long time no...blog! :( Well, we've been on "vacation" the entire past week, which is odd for us, because usually when we go somewhere it's only for a few days. I had planned on blogging during the trip, but we had a bit of a crowd where we were and lots of things to do so I didn't necessarily have access to my computer or blog stuff so I couldn't post and I think I'm having withdrawals - which is why I'm writing this post. I have pictures and such to organize before I can make a more elaborate post but since I haven't done a "World According to Alexis" post in a while, I figured I'd share some of her silliness from our trip...


Alexis on "the ghost":


Alexis (talking to myself and her MawMaw - my mom): ...and then, I saw a ghost!
MawMaw: Oh? And what IS a ghost?
Alexis: Ummm...a scary costume...
MawMaw: And you saw one? Where? What happened?
Alexis: Well...I saw that ghost and I said (throwing her hand out in front of her in a 'stop' position) WAAA! NO ghost, go away! You're in. my. space!


Alexis on being happy:


She had a particularly rough time at a certain restaurant we went to to eat dinner. We were discussing with her the importance of being a "good girl" and that we are all happy, and not upset, when she listens and acts like a good girl...


MawMaw: Alexis, we all want to be happy and you know, part of being happy is being...(hoping Alexis would fill-in-the-blank with "a good girl/listener" etc.)
Alexis: ...Married!


(Glad she thinks like that!)


Alexis on being a law-abiding citizen:


Alexis: MawMaw! You're driving too fast!!
MawMaw: No, I'm not. Driving too fast is bad it means you're...
Alexis: Breaking the law...
Me: And then what will happen?? (hoping she'd say 'the police man will get you' since that's what we usually talk about)
Alexis: Ummm...the law will be broken...


Alexis is a good listener:


Alexis: LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA VIVI-DO-BUTT LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA VIVI-DO-BUTT LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA
MawMaw: Alexis (in a 'please be quiet' tone)...
Alexis: LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA...
MawMaw: ALEXIS...are you listening to me?
Alexis: Yes, MawMaw, I am. What did you need to tell me?


(Sweet. as. sugar.)


She kept us laughing (or crying) for a good portion of this trip! Hope you got at least a little chuckle :)


More pictures and projects coming soon, very, very soon! My withdrawals from blogging will more than likely inspire a good number of posts coming here soon. Thanks for reading ya'll!
