Ezra offering his hammer to the "woiker man".
Out with the old--had to dispose of the whole floor just because of the one area that had to be fixed. That type of flooring had been discontinued, so he couldn't just replace the one section, unfortunately.
Playing on the futon in the living room--the furniture juggling was just short of insanity. We are thankful to have it all back in its proper place!
Finding the problem.
The fix--new (even) mud.
"Look mom! High heels with my moto-shirt. What do you think dad will say?"
"Someday you can wear them too, Kine."
This is intense joy--not anger. He sometimes likes to steal back the high chair from Caroline.
This is nothing out of the norm--we all have a little love for ice cream in this house. Especially when topped with bananas and hot fudge.
I finally got around to trying out a new recipe I've been wondering about for a few years. Cherry-chocolate chip cookies. Deeeee-lish! In Tadd's words "I wouldn't be offended if you made these again."
"Look mama, it's a helicopter!" Tinker toys really are an educational entertainment system. The other evening I broke them out (Ezra has to pick up ALL other toys before this multi-piece set is allowed off its high shelf in the closet) while I made dinner and the kids entertained themselves for a good 30 minutes--without fighting.
We went to mommy group last Friday and spent the afternoon/evening at Grandpa Tractor and Grandma Harbor's house. The kids are big fans of the air popper...so Grandpa makes them lots of popcorn.
Caroline is also a big fan of Grandpa. She shouts his name when we pull into the driveway. Since he was at work when we got there, she spent a lot of time asking for him and watching out the window for his car. Her Grandpa love is not limited to Grandpa Tractor--she loves Grandpa Hi-do a lot too :)...just in case he was wondering.
