MyHeritage Face Recognition: A wonderful blend of fun and public humiliation.

my celebrity look-alikes

Well, this was fun. Thanks Courtney! I think I’ll let Dave do his own.

catherine tate

Back in June, Holly and I discovered The Catherine Tate Show on BBC America. As far as we can tell, the show isn’t on anymore, but we’ve since discovered a treasure trove of her sketches on YouTube. We love (most of) her comedy, and we wanted to share a couple of our favorite characters/sketches.

Enjoy your gooseberry and cinnamon yogurt.

nice and warm

The other day, Dave was outside shoveling the walk and driveway, so naturally, Nezzie had to go outside too. When he was done, they played in the snow for a while and when they came in, Nezzie showed me a little icicle that she had found. She said that she had named it “popsicle.” She was keeping it inside her glove “to keep him nice and warm.”

more of nezzie

While we’re at it, here are a few more Nezzie-isms:

She loves to sing “Jimmy Crack Corn.”
She calls The Brady Bunch, the Gravy Bunch.
Her favorite song is “Portabello Road” from Bedknobs and Broomsticks.
She holds out her hand and talks to a tiny, imaginary animal that she calls “Fido,” which I can only assume is a dog.
She LOVES the book “A Bad Case of Stripes” by David Shannon. It will be a sad day when that one has to go back to the library.
She is very resistent to being potty-trained.
Her favorite thing to say is, “but Mom!”
She recently told Dave, “You’re funny Daddy. Congratulations.”
She goes to (pretend) Disneyland with Grandma Kewish at least once a day.
She loves her Strawberry Shortcake dolls, and told me that I need to buy her some other ones with “all [my] money.”
She has the cutest little kid accent, Her “L” is a “W” and her “TH” is an “F.” i.e. “wook” and “nufing” are common.

I just love our Nezzie girl. Especially when she says, “Mommy, I fink your bootiful.”

i am a child of god

Nezzie was recently moved out of nursery and into primary—she’s a sunbeam now. Apparently, she was asked to say a prayer in primary today, and according to her teacher, Nezzie stood at the pulpit and said “I am a child of God and He has sent me to Him. Let’s pray.”

Where do they come up with this stuff?

keep on truckin’

Grandma Kewish was going through her old pairs of glasses this morning and she ran across these beauties from the seventies. Nezzie wanted to try them on, and so we decided to take some pictures of her. Luckily, the fake teeth that Nezzie got for Christmas were nearby to complete the magic.

the bumper bonnet

The bumper bonnet. Because you can never be too psychotically over-protective.
Please note: this is not our child. Also note: no children were harmed in the creation of this blog post. Note number three: if you have a bumper bonnet, want a bumper bonnet, or are a psychotically over-protective parent, we apologize.
