Introducing the Mulder grandchildren: we’ve got Marli, then Ellie who’s in Ava’s armpit, Rylie (about to fall apart), Sydney, and Hailey. It took 42 takes and a lot of
bribing gentle prodding to get everyone on the floor at the same time for this photo.
Hailey (7), Marli (5), Sydney (1.5), and Ellie (1 month) belong to Stacy- the oldest of the Mulder children.
Ava (2 months) belongs to Mitch- the youngest Mulder boy.
Ry (6 months), of course, is Curt’s…who’s under Stace but above Mitch in birth order.
And- as far as we know- Meg, the youngest of the Mulder clan, has no children. Right, Meg? Meg?
Speedy was also found and ‘rescued’ from the wilderness. I say ‘rescued’ but you know I really mean brought in by running and screaming granddaughters and thrown on to a slick modern countertop for all the world to see.
Maybe Speedy wants to go back out in the tall, tall grass. He’s not much on family bbqs.
And finally, a Memorial Day Weekend conversation:
boy: I think I’m going to start journalling again. It’s been a long time, and I really miss it.
girl: Good idea. [pause] But, Boy…could you not journal about me?
boy: Why? ‘Cause you’ll read it?
girl: ‘Cause I’ll read it.
boy: I’m not going to journal about you. I don’t have any problems with you!
girl: Whatever! Liar Liar pants on fire!
boy: Girl, my problems with you are very commonly known. There’s no need to journal about them.
Sooooooooooooooo sweet. *ahem*
