Boy + dog

Xander has decided that he wants to "train" Percy. This mostly involves shouting commands and trying to figure out why he isn't complying. "play dead....PLAY DEAD....PLAAAAAY DEAD!!!"

Halloween 2013

I don't know if I've mentioned it, but Bella loves going back through the blog and reading old posts from when they were smaller.  So, here's to some new content to enjoy when this is their "smaller". They are growing up so fast.

The TARDIS, a witch, red ninja, and a monster high character fitting the request of "girl vampire".The red ninja takes being in character VERY seriously. ;-)


Two wheels

Xander learned how to ride without training wheels last week. Family bike rides are about to get more enjoyable. :-)

Trying to break the habit

... the habit of giving my blog up for dead. Trying to do mini posts with photos at least. It's better than nothing for keeping a journal. ;-)

We have gotten an unbelievable amount of use it out of this snap circuit kit over the years. These two have been spending a lot of spontaneous bonding time making projects with it lately. Priceless.

Down time.

The fact that this is the view from my attempt to sneak a few minutes of recreational reading into my day... Should explain the lack of blog updates. He would crawl inside my skin if it were possible... And he never...ever... ever stops talking. He's currently counting as high as he can... repeatedly.

They won't be able to sit together at this table much longer! They are getting so big. New house will need a new outdoor table.

Easter 2013

Happy Easter blog readers!  It is a crazy, crazy, crazy train over here.  Our house just went up for sale...photographer was postponed until tomorrow because we could not finish everything in time for photos on Thursday.  We are BEYOND swamped with house stuff and work stuff. The adults here barely have time to sleep. I'll be back.

Bathroom is done.

Well... In the middle of the bathroom renovation, we ended up deciding to build a new house. That decision turned our 2 month plan for getting the house ready to sell into a 2 week plan. We found a great lot that we needed to move on the contracts for immediately. So... We've basically been killing ourselves for the last 10 days nonstop. The realtor and photographer will be back here to officially put it on the market next week. We held her off on going official until the new carpet goes in and all the painting is finished. So that's the news. Also the reason I haven't had time to post recently.

Yo Ho, Yo Ho, a Pirates Life for Me.

It's been quiet here because remodeling the upstairs bathroom while keeping our lives running is time consuming. This week's preschool theme was pirates and explorers. As you can see... It was a success. Fun topic to teach. Now we are on to Spring Break. For us this will involve a few local outings and a lot of house projects. The kids need to accept that getting a new house involves a lot of working together to get things accomplished. Like it, or not. Bathroom pics to follow soon.
