Darth Maul


My kids love dressing up and I found this Darth Maul mask and made a double light saber to go with it. Rex loved it and was wearing it all day.

At bedtime I found him and Ken reading. The book of choice? A Children's Book about Being Careless. "You are being careless when you act as though you don't care about the people or things around you." It made me laugh. I hope Darth Maul learns his lesson about being careless.

100th Day of School


To celebrate the 100th day of school the kids in Abraham's class were supposed to dress like they were 100. He makes an adorable old man!

We were happy to accept when the Bullocks invited us to Marbles! It had been so long since we had been and we had a great time. 
Rex loved this race driver costume. 
Annemarie always gravitates to anything that makes sound.
Giving shots
So there was this new area and when you pressed a button it played a clip from the song, The Electric Slide. Annemarie was CRAZY about it. She'd press it and then either dance around or just sit and stare at the speaker. It was so funny and so cute.

Getting Big


Little Annemarie is getting so big! She's super cute, but likes to play a little too rough. We are working on playing nicely with friends so she'll be ready for nursery in a few months.

Rex has been struggling with having his eye patched over the last year and a half. He did so good with it when he was really little (he's been patched since 7 weeks old), but once he figured out how to take it off, we were in for it. He is too little to understand why and too little to bribe. It has been a constant struggle. He's starting to get old enough that I can convince him to wear it for about 30 minutes a day now. We spend the whole time reading books together and he asks me after each book if he can take it off, but we are getting there. 
Sometimes I can convince him to wear it a little longer (he's supposed to wear it 3 hours a day) by playing on the photo booth app with him. He thinks it is so funny, and honestly, so do I!

Here's to good vision!

Nature Walk


Ken took the boys for a nature walk and to a bridge that spans a freeway. They had so much fun and I love seeing pictures of them getting along. 

 They found this map of the museum grounds and Rex was so excited. He pretended the rest of the time that he was a captain and was following his treasure map.

Jesus wants me for a Sunbeam


He spent his first Sharing Time in Primary laying on the floor. When I finally went in to help, all he would say is "I want to go to nursery". Once he got to class and got snack, he realized Sunbeams was okay and now he talks about it all the time.
