We don't call him "little no-no" for nothin'...

Yesterday, I put Noah in his room for a few minutes so I could get a little laundry done without him undoing things faster than I could get them done. As I was walking to the laundry room my nose smelled a familiar smell. "Desitin? Why am I smelling Desitin?" I had placed a tube on a shelf in their closet. I guess it must've been knocked down by one of the older kids because this is what I found...

What a mess!

kid pics

The kids are just loving having a backyard and grass!

Another thing the kids enjoy doing--watching Daddy play video games. It is pretty funny how much they like it.

The difference between boys and girls...

I love how having boys adds a whole new dimension to the girly world I am used to. Here is a conversation the kids had this morning.

(Our neighbors dog was barking...)

Jessica says: "The dog says 'Hi. Ruff, ruff (said in a high pitched, cutesy voice).'"

Joshua says (in his deep and serious voice): "The dog says, 'You're a poop.'"

How my life has been blessed with many odd conversations about poop, farts, and other gross things thanks to Joshua. And I am also grateful, though, that it hasn't worn off too much on Jessica!

what a goofball

It has been an exciting day. Noah, especially has been getting into a little trouble. This is what I found when I got him up from his afternoon nap... Oh yeah, that is his sister's clean undies. If he can find any he will cuddle them, bite them, whatever. Today he chose to sleep with them. (They look like little arm floaties :) )
This next picture is what I saw when I came out of the room earlier on in the day....

and yes, he was eating the cereal out of the vacuum cylinder.

Do you ever load up your plate with a lot of stuff and then look back and say, hmmm, maybe I am crazy to take this all on? For instance, we still haven't finished unpacking, my 1 year old is now walking and getting into everything, sewing Halloween costumes, and potty training my 3 year old is currently on my plate! And keep on eating, breathing, and cleaning up messes of course! Anyway, I just think it is kind of funny. I do well though when there are goals and things to accomplish. Oh, and so far the potty training is going pretty well...cross your fingers that he catches on quick!

favorite things

I am enjoying a new "favorite" thing. Our vacuum busted and since we just moved into a house that is all tile with rugs we went in search of a new vacuum. We bought a super lightweight, plug in vacuum that has one setting for floors and another one for carpet. It's quiet and the best part is the kids love it! This morning I went to vacuum up the tile and the Jessica and Joshua wanted to do it. Hmm, "Okay." They took turns and vacuumed up the tile while I did the dishes...awesome!!! I know their fascination might end tomorrow, but for today, I am enjoying it!

kid talk

Just a quick note, Joshua has now modified an English word to suite his own taste. The word because is now but-i-cause...I love it. I love it when kids have their own language!
