Partly Nonsense

It’s great having all of our family together this year. It’s the first time it has happened since they grew up and moved away.

The Cameli boys are stealing the show as usual. Little Louie still doesn’t say much but eats like there is no tomorrow. “No” is no and “yes” is no until asked if it might be yes and then it’s “nes.”

We took the boys to McDonald’s Friday night because Amy and George were out with friends for the night. When we drove up Alex says, “This is the same McDonald’s we went to last time. Let’s go to another one.” (There must be more than one in Atlanta).

They all went to Great-Grandma’s for lunch while we were working on Friday, but the boys didn’t eat anything-at least Alex didn’t. When they were preparing to leave, Amy asked Alex to give Great-Grandma a hug. He says, “I don’t have to because I didn’t eat anything.”
