Oh Cindy. She is the most obliging person in the family. Not to mention gullable. I have a lot of memories of her. A recent one is when Cindy called me on the phone and asked, "Okay, you promise to tell me the truth??"
"About what Cindy?"
"Does Dad have a tattoo on his bottom that says Pam-e-la?"
(me trying to hold in hysterical laughter)
"What are you talking about Cindy?"
"Dad said that he had one and then MOM said he did too. DOES HE? That is SOOOO gross!!"

Carly said...

Also a more recent one:

We're driving in Utah past Deer Creek (or Crick as the Wallsburgians call it) and Cindy turns to me and says, "Wait, that's a lake, not the ocean right?"

me:"Um...Cindy?"

Cindy:"Okay it's a lake!!! Cuz it has no waves"

me:"And how about we're no where near the coast?"

I remember when Cindy blew through a red light, cackling with joy as the RL camera snapped a photo.

BUSTED

I remember putting Cindy on the top of the stairs in the dark after the Northridge quake. I told her to stay while I ran to get my shoes but she tried to follow me and fell down the stairs. I think she was 2.

My favorite has to be when we convinced Cindy she had osteoporosis. And she went onto the osteoporosis website all the time and played that game with the bone guy.

Also, another good one is when she was horrified to find out that she was Caucasian.

Tadd said...

I remember when Cindy was sleeping in Nate's room without his permission, and Nate proceeded to hit Cindy on the head with a basketball.

Kirk said...

I remember when we were at the Crockett family reunion driving to the beach when we drove by the honey tasting house. I jokingly suggested that we make a pit stop to taste the delicacies of avocado honey...when Cindy calmly replied that she had been and thoroughly enjoyed the many tasty flavors of honey.

To top it off I think that she is the only Crockett to visit the fish hatchery on the same road.

Carly said...

How about when we(sisters) diagnosed Cindy with halitosis. We were kinda mean. hahaha.

Also, Cindy got a video camera for Christmas one time and used it to spy on people. She taped quite a few people. Mom, watching T.V. and wiping the counters with some left over water.

Tadd said...

What did she call her videos? Crockett Commentaries?

KC said...

My favorite is when we came home from eating dinner at Black Angus and we brought home leftovers. Cindy was babysitting for us and we said she could have the leftover cake. Next thing I knew Cindy had eaten the cake, steak, potatoes, asparagus, pretty much everything we took home with us. I didn't have the heart to stop her.

I remember hitting cindy in the head with a basketball in an attempt to get her out of my room

debora said...

Oh dear Cindy Loo Who. Where should I start.
When Cindy was little we called her dolly because she had such an adorable, perfect, little girl face.
I absolutely loved teaching Cindy how to drive. She was always so calm and collected. HA! Memorable Cindy driving moments: getting stuck in the planters at the church after seminary, spinning out from the stake center after seminary and then saying it must have been the black ice...in southern Cali.
Thank you Cindy for being our no.1 Drama Queen. The entertainment has been wonderful.

Lindsay said...

I remember calling Cindy "Toots" when she was a toddler.

Lindsay said...

Oh and avocado honey?? Eww. And who in the world does ever visit that fish hatchery? Couldn't quite make it to the beach, huh? I hope you didn't go to these places by yourself, Cindy.

Scott said...

i want to see the video of mom watching tv

Rob said...

Cindy likes the name "Cnidy."

Rob said...

also...."tttt uhhh." I wonder if anyone knows what that is. It's Cindy's trademark.

Scott said...

isn't cindy the one who does the dolphin

Lindsay said...

Yes. I think Dad refers to it as the Porpoise.

debora said...

Cindy was sharing some of her favorite pick-up lines with us last night after FHE. here's one."Are you a parking ticket? cause you have fine written all over you!" Scott, you might want to try that one out sometime. Or maybe you already have.
I think Cindy might have a potential career as a stand-up comedian. She's pretty hilarious at times.

Carly said...

It's comedienne mom.

Cindy is pretty funny. She's also a great aunt, a wonderful helper. Cindy if you need a job after you graduate from college then you can live with us full time as our nanny.

Sorry Lindz I got dibs.

Oh yeah Cindy wasn't there a time when you kept wearing Tadd's clothes. I just remember Tadd coming home from school find you lounging around in his pants or shirts. He was quite angry.

debora said...

Okay smarty-pants Carly. I knew it was comedienne, a female comedian. I just didn't want others to think I was spelling it wrong. You spelling nazi you.

Carly said...

ha ha. I knew you knew that. I was just teasing you.

Bob C said...

Cindy:

"Dad, you may be a big shot lawyer but to me you're just a moron."

or

"Dad, how can you do that [pass gas, say something inappropriate, threaten to break someone's arm]? You are the bishop!"

or

"How can you ruin my life like that?"

or

Expressing shock and dismay when I ask her to do a boy's chore.

Bob C said...

Or, expressing shock and dismay in Iowa when we are staying at a "motel" instead of a "hotel." (The Days Inn was too much of a dive for her.)
