T loves to have things on her head... for a short period of time. She sported a few different hat styles recently. She also had a band-aid obsession. Honestly, if we had not run out of band-aids (don't worry I have a hidden stash for real stuff) I think it would continue. You will see many pics with a band-aid on the forehead. It is just for fun. She did get an scrape there once. When she actually needed a band-aid on it she was not so interested, but now loves to have the area covered!
|T: Take me to a fiesta mom!|
|T: I still love this hat and leg warmers that I wore back in China... and they still fit... and they are still super cute!|
|Loving her leg warmers!|
|Pretty smitten with the baby wearing the hat.|
|Still loving their (T's) leg warmers!|
|T: You know you want a band-aid to match your shirt too, right?|
|M: When am I going to get something. T: Jesse, can I tell you a story?|
|T: Come on fish I am ready!|
|M: Maybe big Wade can help me catch a fish.|
We love all the kids and dogs in our neighborhood. It is such a fun place for our kids to be kids and laugh and play. Our kids are obsessed with the dogs next door as the picture below will show.
|T: Ta-uu-yah PLEASE come here. I want pet you!!|
|M: M and L are so much fun. The kids created a sandbox where the construction crew tore up the sidewalk. They are smart kids!|
Brandon's parents came up for Labor Day weekend. We ate some tasty food, played, and enjoyed our time together. M woke up at about 4:00am the first day because Grandpa Tom told him that he would get up early with him. After day one we clarified that the time still needed to be after 6:00am.
|M: Tickle monster!!!|
|T: I love eating with Grandma Judy!|
|T: Upside down books are the best!|
|M: Look at me flying through the air!|
|M: I am almost to your hand Grandma Judy!|
|M: Look, I am even higher.|
|T: Faster M. M: You need to hold on T!|
|We love getting prizes at the grocery store!|
One day I walked in on the photo below. Check out how she rigged up the step stools. Sadly, after the bath she carried the soaking wet dog all around while I tried to get it. Evan after squeezing most of the water out, it was very wet and I convinced her that doggy needed a towel... sigh.
|T: Mommy, puppy dirty. Puppy need bath!|
The photos below should really be a post by themselves. They are my attempt to keep it real folks. Life in our home gets crazy. If I am trying to attempt to cook while children are present and in my care, things get even crazier. Hopefully these will help you feel better about the state of your kitchens.
|This is most likely what my kitchen looks like at some point on most days.|
|Let's pretend to be asleep mommy!|
|What color is your water bottle T? T: Purple!|
|Family bike washing!|
|M: Mom this is pretty cool, huh?|
|T: "OK, I ready go shopping. I need boots."|
|Another sweet moment captured.|
|T: Aww Bobbi my friend!|
|M and L starting the 5K strong!|
|T: I want to walk too! (I think you can guess that our pace was slow and all those behind us didn't stay behind us for long)|
|M rigged this up all on his own. A farm trailer hooked to a car carrier using a straw and bracelet! Impressive!|
