Kyra (2 days shy of age 7)- I love Daddy because he took our family to Wild Adventures when it was his birthday. When I was sick, Daddy went to the store and got some medicine for me. Daddy built a big playground for us so we wouldn't have to play inside all day when were were five years old before we turned six in 2007.
Jaiden (2 days shy of age 7)- He takes care of us when we're sick. He's not in the Army anymore so he can take care of us. He bought us a big pool for our birthday. I love Daddy because every other week he gets us McDonald's. And yesterday he got me a strawberry shake because he knows I think chocolate is gross! And he makes better oatmeal than you do.
Jordan (age 5)- He farted. (hysterical laughter from everyone ensues). Daddy farted in the hallway after he put Kaelyn in the bed and it was really funny.

Jaiden: Oh yeah…but he's still not an engineer.
