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...

Wendy is such a character – here’s two quick stories that relate to the “grands”: #1 – We had Grandma & Grandpa R over for dinner the other night. As we ate, Grandpa was sitting next to Wendy and she asked him why he didn’t have any hair on his head. He started making...

“Sam, I’m ignoring you!”

Frequently, while the kids are in their chairs eating (we have 2 high chairs in the family room that they can climb up and sit in for informal meals), Sam and Wendy will get into some back and forth argument over something inane.  Often it’s something that doesn’t even makes sense, but the longer...

Happy Halloween!

That’s right, we celebrate it. We had a super fun day yesterday and pictures are now up. We took this pic in the AM, on the way to preschool for Wendy. The school doesn’t technically celebrate “Halloween”, but had a “Let’s Pretend Parade”, where all the kids dressed up and had parade around the...

Wendy & Sam have been taking a Sibling Tumbling Class at Barcroft Rec Center this fall.  It’s a real nice facility and they both have enjoyed it.  It wears me out because I spend most of my time trying to herd Sam to stay in the right group, but they still have a great...

Our local MOPS group does a Fall Festival each year for the wee ones.  It was a beautiful day and the kids had a blast.  They had a moonbounce, face painting, pumpkin painting, popcorn, and a costume parade where the kids got some yummy treats.
