Look at this smile....Sophie is our little "Ham." She is comic relief much of the time, and has her Daddy and I laughing at all the silly things she says and does. Right now she has this whole other family that includes 5 brothers and 3 sisters and they have the "keeping up with the Jones" pretty bad. Whatever we do or say her other family has it bigger and better, and yes, it is so funny and I admit I laugh. I'm sure I will regret this when she is 15 but right now it is funny. I'm torn though, I really don't know if I should scold her for story-telling or hug her for having a great imagination. The stories she can tell about her brothers is down right entertaining. Peter swears she dreams it up at night. I think she has too, or this other family is real, because the things those brothers can do is like something out of a black and white western movie. They have horses, who do not have names, but get their nails done in Denver. They can shoot snakes and have real guns. They have numerous dogs and adventures and she always has something to add about their day. Oh, her other mother is named "Miss Mary," and her other dad is "John."
Today Sophie wanted to have a picnic so she brought out her best dishes and fed her baby sister......
