1. when hopping into the car and wanting to sit in the front seat: "PISTOL!" meaning shotgun.
2.Ovary-thing...meaning Everything.
3. "Mom. it smells like someone dropped a douche in the bathroom!" I think you meant deuce son.
4. "Mom when I'm a Freshguy, will Isaiah be in the same school as me?"..Nope, when you are a FRESHMAN, he will not.

There are so many more and sadly I know he has inherited this from me and my mother.

The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Whiskey Creme sauce over Ribeye Steaks

Good Lord! This recipe just gets better and better and better. This lady knows what she is doing and I am convinced that it is because she knows how to use 3 key Ingredients:
1. Butter
2. Cream
3. Butter
She's not shy and she makes no apologies and everything she makes is awesome.
The secret to making these steaks even better is to marinate the steak in a packet of tenderizer (Lawry's Seasoning packs) overnight or for a few hours. You use a large skillet and sear the sides of the steak and then use the steak flavoring in the skillet to season the whiskey cream sauce...sooooooooo good. Seriously, I would drink the sauce if I could.
The recipe can be found in The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Rib Eye Steak with Whiskey Cream Sauce.
I serve mine with steamed asparagus and roughly mashed potatoes using the sauce as gravy.

Things I learned while sitting in the hospital..

1. I AM smarter then a 5th grader!!Phew..I was nervous!
2. Elephants are deadly! When Elephants Attack!!
3. Way more about Elephants and habits of honeybees then I care to share..
4. Night nurses in the pediatric ward know how to party.
5. I can not sleep in a reclining chair anymore.
6. Isaiah is a comedian and quite the little flirt!

Isaiah spent a few days in the hospital for a infected lymph node that caused the side of his face and then eventually his whole face to swell up. It was kind of funny and no I most certainly did not harass him or laugh at him or sneak up behind him and give my best "fat Albert..hey hey hey" impression. I would never do something like that!
