You guys know Jeff, right?

Last night I was giving my kids the healthy eating spiel.  You know...healthy food is good for your muscles and good for your bones... (blah, blah, blah) ...eating healthy helps you grow.

Parker: So if we only eat healthy food, we'll be as tall as uncle Jeff?

Me:  Not necessarily.  That has to do with your genes.

Parker:  That's why uncle Jeff is so tall?  He wears skinny jeans so he can just squeeze his body up taller and taller?

I went on to explain the difference between genes and jeans with my 7th grade knowledge of genetics.

And I used to think learning about genes would never help me in the real world.

To see Jeff in all his skinny jeans glory and to get a sneak peek at his strikingly beautiful fiancee, Olivia, you can check out their engagements HERE.

I like Parker's reasoning... if only it worked that way!

Those are amazing engagement photos!! They look adorable together- the most sickening part- they probably weigh 100 pounds together! What cuties in those skinny jeans I can only dream of! Loved all of them- and how nice that they won them!!
Congrats to both!!

How tall is Jeff? He is such a blend of your Mom and Dad!!! Well, that sounds stupid..aren't all of our children a blend of their Mom's and Dad's? Well, I see both of them in him. His girl is stunning!!!!

Oh that is hilarious. Kids are so funny. Genes and jeans are confusing. ;)
Their engagement pictures are fun. Olivia is beautiful. And your brother looks great in his tall skinny jeans.

I laughed for a very very long time when I read this. I can't wait to meet your boys!

Jen said...

That is so funny! Love it!!! Your kids are so great. And those pictures are amazing. She's darling and looks like she'll fit so well into your family.

What a great story! :) that is so funny! I love their pics too- though I can see why you think she is beautiful- something about her resembles you! I am not even sure what exactly but something in her style is similar to you. :)

Wow Kate, what great news! About skinny jeans I mean. Just kidding. I'm so happy and Jeff looks SO SO happy! And seriously, Olivia looks like she should be your sister. Tell Jeff he needs to invest in Vegas Hotels and change his name to Reuben. Love your family's guts.

Abbey said...

Wow he is tall and skinny, there is always hope for the boys. I love those photos, they look perfect together.
