Good Night Sister

For nap and night time, Ethan always asks to sing a song to Abby. This started shortly after she was born and was rocking in the swing. I thought he would get tired of doing this everyday, but he doesn't. In fact, he gets sad if he doesn't get the chance. The song he sings varies from the Jazzy ABC song he made up, which includes a woo people, to Jesus loves me. I now present you with, "Go Tell it on the Mountain" from last night. So Sweet!

Mon! Mon!

So I thought I'd try some multitasking. I'm listening to the blazer game on the radio and blogging. Today after dinner, Ethan asked if we could watch Peter Pan together. We said okay and Eric and the kids headed downstairs. I was up in the living room cleaning up a few things and I saw Abby coming back up the stairs, saying "Snuggle. Snuggle, mama." I was about to pick up a couple more toys when Abby turned and looked at me from the stairs saying, "mon! mon! (come on) snuggle, mama!" while she was motioning with her hand for me to come with her. I think you all know I left those toys there and followed my little girl. All four of us had some snuggle time on the couch. I love these little moments!

Cutest Little Puppies I Know

I finally got around to taking a few pictures of our little dalmations this past weekend. I gave them pumpkins to play with and offered them several treats, made crazy faces and noises in hopes of getting one good picture. I love digital cameras!


This is one of my favorites!

It's Preschool Time!

Can you believe it! Ethan is old enough to start preschool. How time flies! He has been very excited for this day. He even woke up earlier than usual because he was so excited. I hope this is not a trend =). This first day we got to go with Ethan to his class to help him interact and check out all the fun things to do. Tomorrow he goes by himself for an hour and next week he starts his regular week. He did so well yesterday! On the way to school he told us he was nervous and shy, but that didnt' last too long. Just check out a few pictures below. He even reached out to a few kids. There were so many fun things for him to do that the time flew by. He can't wait to go back tomorrow.
Here are a few pictures before we left for school
What a handsome boy




He got a little distracted during our photo shoot because the garbage man came. How can I compete with that =).



This picture sums up well how he feels about school




Hello GQ

A little blurry, but I love his expression

Me and my boy
One more hug before we're off. I think someone is ready to get in the car.

Washing our hands after doing a hand print with blue paint. Fun!

Checking out the critters

Look at the focus

Showing his artistic side

I thought Ethan was going to be the tallest in his class, but
there was this other kid named Eric at the table that beat him by a few inches. =) Sitting down for circle time. How cute!

Can't Wait for You to Get Home

One of my very favorite things to do is watch Eric play with the kids. There is nothing like it! We can't wait to have him back so we can play some more.






Sydney's Party Round 2

Some of the blogs that I've looked at have posts called Wordless Wednesday. They let the pictures speak for themselves. I'm going to use that as my out today since I can't think of anything clever to write. =)







Everybody loves Poppie!


Yummy! Ethan sure enjoyed being able to eat a cookie AND a cupcake. =)


So Cute!





Don't Mess with Sydney

Here are a few pictures from Sydney's birthday. Don't worry, there will be more camping pictures soon. Anyway, I like this little series of pictures between Sydney and Abby. If you look starting at the 3rd picture Abby is eyeing Sydney's hat, but Sydney is not about to let her take it. Also see how Abby is sitting in the last picture of this series.

Camping Part 1

SO many camping pictures people! Thank goodness for digital cameras. Here are just a few.

Ethan: I've got CHOCOLATE MILK!!!
Henry is thinking: That milk looks yummy. What can I do.
What if I offer a trade

Henry: Would you like this delicious muffin?
Ethan is obviously not interested
Henry giving it one last try

How cute are these pictures!
Carson just came up to Abby one night and I happened to have the camera.
