But They're So Pretty

Molly:  *playing Lego Star Wars on the Xbox with Butch* Why do we have to shoot them?

Butch:  *shooting things*  Because there are things inside them we need.

Molly:  But they're so pretty.  Why do we have to shoot them?  They're so pretty.

Hide and Seek

Molly:  *counting while Charlotte hides.*  One ... two ... three ...

Charlotte:  *"hiding" under the dining table and loudly counting along with her sister*  One ... two ... three ...

Molly:  ... 16 ... 17 ... 18 ... 19 ... 20!  Ready or not, here I come!

Charlotte:  ... 18 ... 19 ... 20!  *jumping out from her spot*  Weddy o' not, heew I tum!

Molly:  *chuckling sigh of exasperation*  Ok, do-over.
