An Uncooperative toddler

I tried to get Sebastian to sing his abc's but he was not having it, as you can see and hear.

Although I have tried lots of things to keep us from getting sick, all three kids are sick and I'm fighting something as well. Alexandra had her first experience with coughing up junk last night which freaked her out, understandably. Attics also sounds chunky and they both have a fever of 101. I asked Alexandra if her ears hurt and she said they feel prickly. I got an appointment for both of them today which is good. I'll try to report more later after the dr.'s appointment.

A Beautiful October day

It was such a nice day today. The kids got out and played for a long time. All three of them got in the wagon and so I grabbed the video cam

A morning outfit

Alexandra came down stairs for Breakfast in this outfit Saturday morning. It's rare that I'm speechless, but this outfit made me speechless.

Buddy Jumping

All of a sudden Sebastian started jumping. You'll also see Atticus and his walking progress. You can also see that the kids thought I was just taking their picture because I shot this video with our digital camera.

Alexandra antics

The other day at the dinner table I asked Alexandra to hold Sebastian's hand to pray, she rolled her eyes and looked at Buddy. She said very seriously, No wrestling with me right now buddy!

Last night I needed to set some new ground rules for waking up in the morning. Alexandra has been getting Sebastian out of his bed and they have been crazy kids as early as 6 AM in the morning. I told her that she couldn't turn on the light until she saw the 7 on her clock and then she could come out of her room and get up when she sees the 8. I also told her not to get Sebastian out of her bed. So, she proceeds to tell me there are some new rules for me as well. I humor her. "You need to go to bed with Daddy every night, You need to stay in your bed with Daddy and not get out until you see the 8". Oh, If I couldn't only stay in bed every morning until 8. It was pretty funny!

Fall Photo contest

I decided to enter this photo from 2005 in a fall photo contest over at Write for Karen. I love this photo and I can't believe how different the kids look now.

My cookie is good but......

Sissy's cookie looks good too. You think she'll give me some????

My little dishwasher

Today after lunch I decided to do up a few dishes. Alexandra insisted that she do them. Since there were no glasses(other than sippies) and no knives, I let her at it. She did a really great job! She was really proud of herself too. I know I need to encourage this behavior since I will want her to do dishes later in life. It was also cool since the kitchen was pretty clean and I didn't have to do it. That's the best!

Tonight, as Paul and I ate, wrestlemania happened in our living room. The really funny part is that Alexandra loved having Sebastian tackle and tickler her. After the wrestling was over, they went in the playroom and both sat quietly on the couch and read books. We prayed and Alexandra wanted to hold Sebastian's hand. As Sebastian was praying for me and Paul and alexandra and atticus he pauses and points to Alexandra's bandaid with Cookie monster on it and says, very loudly "Cookie!" He's coming up with stuff like that all the time. He headed up stairs tonight and the stairs were dark and he says very plainly, "It's dark up there". I know that doesn't seem like a big deal but when he wasn't really noticing anything and now he's noticing everything. It is so cool. I'm loving it!

you know it's a good day....

When someone asks you where you get your hair cut! I mean no one would ask if your hair looked bad, right?

This heat is driving me crazy.

Now it might not be what you think. Yes it's hot and humid and that makes me cranky but it's really all about the wardrobe. I have been wearing these short sleeve shirts for 6 months now. We had a warm spell in May! I'm ready to wear my jeans and my long sleeve t-shirts. I also have some great sweaters I'd like to break out. I know, I'm such a girl!

Kid antics

Tonight on the way to church, Alexandra starts singing in the back. It's all about God which is really cute and then she would end and say "I'm finished". When Paul and I didn't clap or cheer she said, "why isn't anyone clapping?" So we clap and cheer. Then she says for my next song, and it's about God and sounds about the same but she claims they are all different. When she finishes again, we clap and cheer and she says, "Thank you, Thank you", then she announces her next song. Paul decides to ask me a question and she says, "Why aren't you listening"! She's a trip.

We were at church tonight for a worship night. The worship band was playing and as one of our elders said that he was doing summersalts for Jesus. He also was dancing around with his hands in the air. It was too cool!

oh I hate getting my buttons pushed

There's something about me that is deep. I get ugly when it comes to injustice and fairness. I also get ugly when someone messes with my family. Now that's not just what you think. Yes if someone messes with my kids, I get ugly. But if someone messes with my "peeps", I get ugly. I don't like this ugly but it happens and sometimes I cool down quickly and sometimes I don't. Tonight is a long cool down time. Even though I'm ugly right now, my bowl of ice cream soothes this button pushed woman.
