Green Eggs and Ham

The Dr. Seuss classic Green Eggs and Ham is a favorite around our house. Anderson had another book of the same size/shape the other day and brought it to me saying 'green eggs ham.' For those who need a refresher, there is a section where a train goes through a tunnel. The book has 'in the dark' and Owen will often take the book and say 'I will not eat them in a tunnel' and then gives it back to me. We were reading last night and when we got to that page, Anderson started saying 'tunnel, tunnel.' Oh my, I may have to add some words to the book!

Book Character Day

Last Thursday was Book Character Day at preschool. Each child was to dress like a character from a book. We didn't get the instructions until late in the day on Wednesday, but I think we did pretty good.

Owen went as a bear scout from a Bernstein Bears book that was mine as a kid. I'm not sure why I had a yellow towel or yellow ribbon at the house, but if I hadn't found them, I don't know what we'd have done!

Still here...

I'm still here...it's been a busy few months and truthfully, there hasn't been too much for me to write about. As usual, I've got a list going of cute things the kids have been saying and I have a few pictures and things to post. I won't keep you waiting too much longer:)

Baseball season has been great for Aaron. He's had great games and still has a great schedule for the next month and a half or so before we get a break.

I've been on a de-cluttering mission around the house. The pantry, closets, drawers, kitchen, office and some more has been touched, cleaned, purged and re-organized. I still have more I want to accomplish, but I'm very happy with what has been achieved. It's such a peaceful feeling to walk into a clean home everyday and to have less stuff to clean!

Owen is still loving school and asks every morning if it's a school day. He'll be excited to add a third day this fall.

Anderson is talking more and more each day. He's a man on a mission of copying everything big brother does.

Pics soon...hey, at least they are finally off the computer...all I have left to do is post.

Me do it!

This guy is getting too big! I've limited some self feeding, just because it's such a messy affair. But, I seem to have been over-ruled. Someone insists on doing it himself, and I must say, he does a great job!

He's also working on drinking from a big boy cup...also a messy affair but, he's getting good at that too.

Ready to ride

No words for this...except maybe one...blackmail.

We spent most of February battling sickies...a few pictures of some of the pitifulness.
