Day 273 - 2010

It was Terry Fox Day at school so we all wore our shirts to support the event. Mitchell was not that cooperative for the photo as you can see. Thanks again Adidas for the shirts!

Day 272 - 2010

Our 'bubs" on our way to school. A day doesn't go by that Mitchell doesn't get at least 3 or 4 "Awww"; or "Look at that hat!"; or "What a cute baby!". We agree with all of the above.

Day 271 - 2010

These are the books on my nightstand/coffee table/bathroom shelf right now. We've had 2 good days and nights in a row of sleep and the food ones are just for recipes so I hope I can retire this pile for some more "entertaining" reading soon.

Day 270 - 2010

With the new development down the street there has been a lot of truck traffic. This kids try to get them all to honk their horns. Quite a few comply and seem to get a kick out of the kids.

Day 269 - 2010

Grandma and Grandpa came over for dinner and brought some "Frogmore Stew". It is a combination of corn on the cob, Italian sausage, shrimp and potatoes.

Day 268 - 2010

We picked out Marlee's glasses today. There were so many to choose from - it's amazing how far we've come in style and choice. She is really happy with them and that is what counts. We should be able to pick them up in about a week.

Day 267 - 2010

The best I could get from Marlee, ever the fashionista.

Day 266 - 2010

Poor Mitchell. I'm sure this is only a sign of things to come with your siblings around!

Day 265 - 2010

We visited Cindi at daddy's work today!

Day 263 - 2010

Out with the old and in with the new. Everything seems to be going at once!

Day 262 - 2010

We all participated in the 30th anniversary of the Terry Fox Run. It was our 5th year.

Day 261 - 2010

Everyone showed up to watch Matt play his first Ice Hockey game. He was a little shaky at first but once he got his bearings he had a great time - go Matt!

Friday, September 17, 2010

Day 260 - 2010

We are experiencing some success in the sleeping-on-our own time! So cute in his new pajamas!

Day 259 - 2010

Mitchell loves playing in the sand. We just have to watch that his older sister doesn't put it close enough for him to eat it! It is so nice to have some warm days to enjoy it again!

Day 258 - 2010

One of the streets on the way to school is lined with oak trees. Only a few of them have acorns and the kids are constantly racing to try and find ones that have fallen - especially those with their caps on. I won't let them pick them and they are not impressed.

Day 257 - 2010

Mitchell's first taste of solid food - carrots. He loved them. (1.5 week shy of 6 months)

Monday, September 13, 2010

Day 256 - 2010

Matt was so happy to purchase (with his own money) this Storm Trooper helmet. He is on the hunt for an Anakin Skywalker costume for Halloween this year and we will look for a storm trooper costume for dress-up when the sales are on.

Day 255 - 2010

It was Fall Kick off day at church and the ponies were out...along with the jumping castles and snow cones.

Saturday, September 11, 2010

Day 254 - 2010

We all came out to the farm for dinner so that the kids could join Samantha for a sleepover in the bunky. Earlier in the day Marlee had her "birthday shop" with Ya-Ya and Nana.

Friday, September 10, 2010

Day 253 - 2010

The girls are growing up so fast. Marlee wants a new suitcase with a "backpack" for her birthday because a few of her friends have one. Note the "purse" on her arm and the rolled up jeans - oh and the attitude.

Thursday, September 9, 2010

Day 252 - 2010

Mitchell got a new hat from Aunt Sarah. Adorable!

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Day 251 - 2010

Note to self: rinse clean up cloths that have spit up in them if you are not going to wash them soon. A week later is breath taking.

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

Day 250 - 2010

Matthew is starting grade 3 and Marlee is starting grade 1 (all day every day!). Here we wait to find out what rooms and teachers they will have.

Monday, September 6, 2010

Day 249 - 2010

We spent the last day of holidays before school with friends - it's always great to play with new toys.

Sunday, September 5, 2010

Day 248 - 2010

I'm fianlly getting around to sewing the edges of the bum wipes so they won't fray.

Saturday, September 4, 2010

Day 247 - 2010

A part of me is sad that these clothes are all going - a sign of Marlee growing up. On the other hand? Valuable real estate is being gained in our basement and her room (although it is quickly being taken over by Mitchell's 1st year clothing!)

Friday, September 3, 2010

Day 246 - 2010

One moment it is swept and washed...and the next...

Cierra ordered new glasses! Pink!!!

Day 244 - 2010

Today was Carter's last full time day with us - well sort of. He starts all day every day JK at his school next week so we will only see him on PA days and in the summers. He started coming in 2006!
