Say Cheese

The kids have really taken to the camera, taking every opportunity to say cheese that they can.

I Scream, You Scream, We all scream for Ice Cream!

Last week Irene introduced the kids to ice cream cones. As you can see, they jumped right in, literally.

Want to go to the moon? How much money you got?

Last weekend Brady put his imagination hat on and came up with being an astronaut and blasting off into space. He took all the cushions off the couch and used pillows and our BOSU ball to make the 'head' and 'tail' of the ship. He then demanded to be dressed in all white and Aunt Judy made him an astronaut face mask for his helmet.

If if that wasn't enough, he showed his commercial sense and charged Yeh Yeh 25 cents to sit on the rocket ship... TWICE.

Rose Bowl, oh Rose Bowl, will I ever get to watch you?

New year's day - 2010...

The day started out normal as any other day. We got up, had breakfast, then took the kids sledding. Of course I snuck in as much college football as I could - I love college bowl games. Then, at 4:30pm it began. Irene went to yoga and the kids were rested and amp'ed up, and apparently ready to ambush me.

Initially Brady was being a very good big brother playing with Mia. I should've gotten suspicious at that point, but was fooled into thinking this was a good thing. He said Mia and him wanted to go jump on his bed (extra mattress lying on the ground, so no risk) and he took her upstairs. I was washing the dishes so said I would come up in a minute.

I heard them playing...then Penn State lined up to kick a game winning field goal...not sure how much time passed, but then I realized it was awfully quiet upstairs - NEVER a good sign. I ran upstairs and was greeted with Brady and Mia being covered in skin lotion.

When I asked Brady why he was doing that when he knew it was wrong, he said "Mia started it and I told her to stop, but she said "no" so I decided to help her." I wasn't really sure how to handle that response given it started out right but ended SO wrong.

So, for the past hour I basically have been giving them baths and cleaning up the rugs....all I wanted to do today was watch the Rose started at 4:30pm...happy freakin' new year to me.
