Little Mister Jolie

I knew that the removal of the white paper from the table would not be well received...
so I just replaced it with some conversation starters.
coincidentally stouffers has some online here...
not that I have any ties with Nestle,
or umm...stouffers...
but yeah, they have like ten of them.
(Colin...hello, 10? how about a few more.)
so, yes. I just found lots (from different places),
printed them, and cut them into not-very-neat little strips.
I know y'all can be much more creative with the execution.
me. not feeling the need.

the boys all think this is pretty cool.
I will say they enjoy certain questions more than others
"What kind of superpowers would you want to have and why?"
a much bigger hit than questions like -
"What is one nice thing you did for someone else today?"
in fact I think Jack answered that last one with
"does it have to be today? can it be last week?"
excellent. one of the questions last night was:
"If you could invite three famous people to dinner, who would they be and why would you like to have them to dinner?"

Jack - "David Beckham because I want to be a professional soccer player. James Bond (having a little trouble grasping that he's the character, not the actual actor) because I might want to be an actor, and Tom Cruise because I want to be cool like him, but minus all the crazy."

Colten - "David Beckham because I want to be a professional soccer player. Angelina Jolie because she's hot, and Gordon Korman because I like his books."

Jared - "Ronaldinho. (yes, because they all want to be professional soccer players) Will Farrell, because just seeing him makes me laugh, and Stephanie Meyer or maybe Fabio from TopChef."

I said (and lets not dwell on my shallow answer please) "Martha Stewart of course because I love her... and probably just Brad and Angelina. they can bring the kids because that would just be fun"

Colten "Mom..."
Me- "Just a second, it's Daddy's turn"

Colin "Michael Jordan (Col loves MJ). Don Mattingly because he was my favorite baseball player growing up, and Rainn Wilson in the character of Dwight."

Colten - "Mom"
Me - "Yes Coley"
"umm...are Brad and Angelina married?"
"Yes, they're married buddy, they have kids"

Sorry dude.
