Blizzards and Name Changes

See this picture?  This is Cort and Lisa watching Little House on the Prairie, the latest obsession in our house.  Cort and....Lisa, you ask?  Why, yes.  Reid has informed us all that his name is now Lisa.  He gets mad if you don't call him that.  Even his twin brother, Cort, has taken to calling him Lisa. 
So they sit, side by side and sharing a blankie, watching the Survivor episode.  It's the one where the Ingalls are traveling and a surprise blizzard hits.  Most of the commentary as Cort and Lisa watch the show consists of Cort yelling over and over, "The ALIEN!  I want to see the ALIEN!"  Now I know what you're thinking.  You think there are no aliens on Little House on the Prairie, don't you?  Technically, that would be correct.  "Alien" is Cort's way of saying "Indian" which he apparently can't pronounce yet.  This episode has a Sioux Indian that saves Pa's life when he gets stranded in the blizzard while hunting for food. 

I so secretly love when Cort and Lisa can't pronounce words right. 

And now, I guess it's time for Ma to go switch out some laundry, thankfully in a machine, not in a bucket... 

If you want to enter a fun giveaway, I have one for a Zombie Cupcake Kit running through Friday on my Facebook page!

My Journey With Candida said...

Oh my Gosh.... When Reid gets older, your other two boys will tease him so bad because he wanted to be called Lisa. How funny that he wants to be called Lisa.

JDaniel4's Mom said...

JDaniel wants to change his name too. Danny think Rufus would be a good name change.

This is so funny! You never know what kids will say next ;)

SweetMarie said...

the name change is so funny and cute! My son loved watching The Andy Griffith Show. He says he would like to live somewhere like Mayberry. :)

alissa apel said...

I love that show! I wish I had cable to watch that show.

"Lisa" that's too funny!

At first I thought, "Lisa" was a imaginary friend.

Isaak's nickname is, "Zeek" and "Zeeky". I've called him that from birth. My Dad always gives all the kids nicknames. I bet him to the punch with Isaak's.

Betsy Adams said...

Cold here this week... We've had a fire in the fireplace all week... LOVE it.

Sorry I meant to say Lisa!

Grandma Bonnie said...

They must be so adorable. I had a friend whos daughter insisted we call her pony. We played along but I was not so sure when they stopped calling her pony. We moved away when she was 12 and still being called pony. Lol, life with children has lots of ups and downs.

Oh, I do enjoy that family of yours. Such a funny bunch!

LOVE Little House reruns. Every now and then I catch it on some channel on cable...with The Waltons right after! Hog heaven, I tell ya.

I'm glad Cort and Lisa like it too. I wish there was more like that on TV now.

Criminy, I sound like my grandma.

Anne Payne said...

Too cute! But you know, my 15 yr old said the other day he wanted us to call him Daniel, then the 18 yr old said if brother got a name change he wanted to be called Henry. Maybe it's a boy thing :) This post definitely made me laugh!

the cuby poet said...

Oh my goodness how this takes me back to when I was 8 or 9 and I read all this series through again and again, they were my favourites and I thought this life sounded fantastic. I wished I could go there. It is great you are sharing them with your twins.

Debby@Just Breathe said...
