I took this picture of Ryan after we went to Panera for an emergency snack. When it was time to leave, it was very important to him that he bring his bread crust and his cup of water. Also it was very important to him that he carry both of them. Well, his hands are […]

The 2014 Halloween Costume Plans

September 15, 2014

We all know that holidays that involve me dressing my children up are very important to me. Due to the move taking up so much space in my brain, I haven’t begun to think about Halloween costumes until very recently.

Tonight while I was making dinner, Elizabeth and Ryan were doing that loud, rough, noisy kind of playing where I keep yelling “you guys better quit it before someone gets hurt!” Obviously they don’t and Ryan threw a block at his sister’s face. (Throwing is his new thing. It’s fun. But at least he got […]

Friday Night Leftovers- Long Time Edition

September 5, 2014

•Elizabeth’s special prize was a pencil. A pencil WITH A PURPLE ERASER! I know! Basically the best thing ever. •She also informed me that her pencil “doesn’t have a sharpie.” She means it isn’t sharpened yet and I love that she’s still little enough to mess up words occasionally. •Instead of going to bed on […]
