4. How does your mom make you laugh?

Kate: When she randomly starts singing - and dancing! - weird songs in the kitchen
Bryce: When I frown, you make the same face, and that makes me laugh

15. What makes you proud of your mom?

Kate: that you come up with something to make for supper every night (For me, this is no small feat!)
Bryce: that you're my mom

Holly said...

Just as funny here as on facebook - except your right - poor Luke looks so very much like his Daddy - it would be hard to find some way he looked like you!! LOVE THIS!!

Marlin said...

What do you mean: 'poor Luke looks so very much like his Daddy'? We were so very glad to finally have a grandchild that looked like a Clemmer. I happen to be Luke's daddy's daddy. I know - it was a tough question for a little guy who has those adorable Clemmer traits that his mom found so attractive.

Jessi said...

ha ha...You're right, Dad, he definitely has ADORABLE Clemmer traits! It's just kind of sad that the ONLY trait he can see as similar to me is that we are white! But then again, I guess the opposite could be said for Seth! :) So, I guess it's a good that both families are finally represented in our kiddos!
