Coming home from church I thought our neighbors looked so sweet walking down the street holding hands in a line.
The pirates are ready to plunder the market. The matching p.j's were a big hit, thanks Grandma Kathy. The boys have never seen the Disney show depicted on them, but that doesn't matter - they match!
The pirates at the market. I always feel like I'm providing the live entertainment when I bring them to the market with me, because my boys inevitably do or say or sing something that makes everybody within earshot laugh (or at least shake their heads and say, "I'm glad I'm not her right now!")
Someone tumbled down a slide the wrong way...
The Ukarumpa fire truck being tested by our neighbor, who is on the volunteer fire team.
I wanted some updated photos to hang on the wall, so this is what I ended up with.
What a handsome guy!
With a smile...
...and when a cow right on the other side of the building mooed loudly!
Greg, as usual, was more resistant to the idea of photos. I did get one of him smiling, but I kind of like this more serious one too.
One morning we had six little boys at our house for a few hours. At lunchtime, Caleb was so worn out that he fell asleep with a cracker in his mouth.
Caleb has started "reading" himself to sleep. It kind of solves our nightly bedtime dilemma. Greg always asks to go to bed right at 7:00, but insists that he can't sleep without Caleb in bed too. Caleb does not want to go to bed that early. So we put him in bed with a few books, and he reads happily for a while until he conks out too.
Speaking of Caleb, his vocabulary is just exploding this week. It has been increasing steadily for a while, but this week he's been coming up with at least two new words a day. Some of his new words this week include: box, flakes (Corn Flakes), daddy and mommy (as opposed to dada and mama), pee, pancake and phone. Short sentences too. This morning he saw me pouring milk in my coffee and he wanted me to do something else for him, so he said "No cup of milk!" Or he'll say something like "want another cracker."
And lastly, a hairy caterpillar from our back yard.
