My Hands


Ahh, Better!

Friday, February 23, 2007


We were at Family Math Night at the kids school last night, and getting ready to leave when Ross saw a cute little girl that he evidently had some fondness for. He ran up to her and did something. (I didn't see that part). She chased him back, and he hid from her. His face was so red! He was all giggly, and trying to hide from her. It was really cute/funny. He obviously had a crush! Too funny. I'm not doing a good job of describing it. Lydia was teasing him on the way home (we all were, but Lydia was going a bit too far with it), and I had to remind her that I knew a secret about a crush of her own. That shut her up in a hurry!

I told her that I put something about her and a boy on my blog (Mr. Rogers). I've been dangling that bit of teasing over her head for a couple of days. She was worried. Ha Ha!

Are my children are growing up too fast, or what?

Happy Birthday Ross!

Mr. Rogers and Lydia

Bruce and I overheard Lydia watching Mr. Rogers and commenting on his song that he always sings, at the end of each episode. It went something like this:

Mr. Rogers: Lydia:
"It's such a good feeling to know you're alive." --"But you're not."--
"It's such a happy feeling, you're growing inside." --"You're not."--
"and when you wake up," --"you're dead."--"ready to say" --"you're dead"--
"I think I'll make a snappy new day" --"No you won't."--
"It's such a good feeling, a very good feeling.
That feeling you know that I'll be back" --"No you won't."---
"When the day is new,
and I'll have more ideas for you" --"No you won't."--
"And you'll have things you'll want to talk about." --"But you're dead."--
"I will too." --"No you won't."

Construction Time

We are building sub-walls, on the exterior walls, to add insulation (which we formerly had none of). The kids thought it was great fun to be allowed to write on the walls. We even did some scribbling for family night.

Really Needed Some Gum!

This is Mark going out barefoot, in the snow, to get some "work gum" from Bruce's truck.

Shower Time!

Justice likes showers! No more baths. He walked in (wearing his jammies) while Mark was having shower a couple of weeks ago, and liked it so much that now I shower him all of the time. I put him in here with Ross & Mark and they were having so much fun! I wanted to photo/video it, as it was, but that would have been inappropriate. We had to do some posing, which totally didn't catch the fun, but oh well.

In The Mean Time...

I know we're all waiting for the big mystery to be solved, but since I can't do that yet, here is what else has been happening around here:

Mark as usual.

The J-Bird as usual.

We had our first slumber party! It was fun. A great group of girls!
Can't believe she's nine already!

Mark and Zach's handy work.

Quite the pair! Love 'em so much!

My life just got a lot busier! Jinorman has learned to climb. Argh!
