Today, Wendy had a friend over, and all three kids were playing in the backyard.  Wendy often ends up being the ringleader of whatever is going on.  Somehow she decided that Sam was the “Big Bad Wolf”, and she and her friend ran screaming from him everytime he approached.  I was worried his feelings...

We got snow!

We had our first official snowfall of winter on Wednesday. I didn’t think it would amount to much, but we got up around 3″. Wendy had fun playing with friends outside, I pretty much hibernated indoors. Here’s a few pics of the accumulation. In the morning… Later in the day… Sam checks it out...

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,...

Yesterday, Wendy’s class had a thanksgiving party. The kids wore “native america” costumes and waved their handmade turkeys while singing for us. Check out the video: I also added a few more pics to the November album: http://picasaweb.google.com/rardnek/200711NovemberPics

“You have a rut on your head”

Monday November 19, 2007

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…

Watch out for the hot rod momma in a minivan …

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...
