You say it’s your birthday… it’s my birthday too!

So, we rescheduled Wendy’s birthday party for Sun Dec. 2nd, which also, just happened to be my birthday too. We had a fun butterfly-filled afternoon with her friends. I uploaded some pictures, and Uncle Barrett finally posted his too – his are much more interesting than mine! Then, the next night, Mike suprised me...

Wendy is “1, 2, 3, FOUR!”

If you ask Wendy how old she is now, she will count it out on her fingers for you. “1, 2, 3, 4!” Not sure why she does that, I think she’s doing the math, to see if it’s really true. Anywho, it’s cute. We celebrated on Thanksgiving day with both sets of grands,...

“You have a rut on your head”

That’s what Wendy told me this morning. I wasn’t sure I understood her, until I realized she was talking about the part in my hair and she did, in fact, mean “rut.” We have the Bernstein Bears book about “Bad Habits.” In it, the Momma Bear explains that a bad habit is like a...

Mike took Sam to “Dan the Haircut Man” for a buzz cut this morning. He (Mike) said he (Sam) did great, didn’t complain or flinch at the clippers.  I miss my lil boy’s golden locks, but at least he has a good head for it…

We had dinner at the in-laws the other night, to celebrate Mike’s bday. I’m driving home and I forget how we get started on this conversation, but someone (I think Sam) wants me to go FAST.  Wendy says she doesn’t want me to go fast because she wants us to be safe (she’s VERY...

“Mommy Things”

Today, Wendy told me she needed to get her necklace.  So she went upstairs and came back down wearing a pink plastic lei.  Then she proceeded to dig out two bracelets that she hasn’t worn in ages, as well as plastic ring she received today.  Then she started walking around the house with these...

Shots Hurt

This is a posed picture, intended to capture the disposition of the kids after they got their flu shots on Thursday.   However, their spirits have since improved and Sam refused to look miserable for the camera… I had almost forgotten about the appointment, so I did very little to prepare them for the reality...

Tenacious Sam

This photo cracks Mike & I up, because it demonstrates how single-minded Sam can be when he puts his mind to something. He is very focused when he is determined to do something, and sticks with it until it is done to his satisfaction. This is, of course, a great quality, one that I...
