1980 ~ 2005

 

Robert & Jenny Moore Family:

 

David – Our closing song in sacrament meeting was “Dearest Children, God is Near You” (Watching o’er you night and Day – and they keep a faithful record of the things you do and say) Later on that day I was at Jenny’s house.  I said to the children; “Angels in Heaven write down everything you say and take pictures of everything you do” and David said “What kind of camera do they use, Kodak?

 

Ally – Grandma and Grandpa MacDonald were in church with Jenny’s family.  They were sitting next to Amy & Ally.  Grandpa wrote a note to Ally – it said: “Is you Amy or Ally?”.  Ally wrote back, “Is you groma or gropa?”

 

Bobby – Robert was flexing his muscles and Bobbie said “The way he works out to get those muscles was by using the remote control changer!”

 

Ally – Robert, Brandon, David & Bobby went to a priesthood fireside.  The phone rang.  The person on the phone wanted David.  Ally said they were at the fire hydrant.  They called again.  Again she said “They’re at the FIRE HYDRANT!”

 

Amy & Ally – Amy pushed Ally into the door and it made a small scratch on her leg.  Ally said “Look Mom!  I have a hole in my leg!”

 

Bobby – Beau is a sheep dog only 4 months old.  He is so huge that when he bumps you he almost knocks you over.  Amy, Alyson, Bobby and Danny were playing in the back yard in the Castle behind beau’s house when they decided to go in the house.  Beau wrapped his legs around Bobby so he couldn’t get by.  They yelled for help and Grandma MacDonald said to Bobby, “What’s the matter Bobby? He’s only a baby!”  Later that day when Grandma was finished feeding Beau and was trying to come in the house, Beau grabbed onto her legs and she couldn’t shake him loose.  Bobby said, “What’s the matter, Grandma, he’s only a baby!”

 

Brandon – Brandon and David said “We saw a motorcycle parked at Albertsons”.  David said “Oh that motorcycle had a saddle bag.”  Then Brandon said “That’s because it has horsepower!

Amy – “Do you know what?  My daddy comes down the chimney!  He’s faster than Santa Claus!”

 

 

Bobbie – Jackie and Jenny went to JB’s for lunch.  Bobbie was causing everyone to stare at them (they were anyway because of the twins and the fact that Jenny was expecting Danny).  Bobbie would pick up a French fry, hold it up in the air and say “Airplane coming in for a landing!” and dip it in the catsup on his plate and then eat it!
