E is a real lover of animals and since we don't have any real breathing ones he takes his pet puppies very seriously. This morning before we could sit down and have breakfast we had to make sure that each of the three puppies had their breakfasts ready. It took some time as each had very specific requirements.
And yesterday he made a 'model' with his toy aircrft carrier--he added a toy submrne that we have and the bottom of our train table, lined up all the planes on the deck and was quite happy with the results. So happy, he then took a picture of it with his camera.

And this is A being A.

Our family really enjoys the movie Madagascr. We have watched it more times that I care to admit and the kids have taken to dramatizing portions of it at the dinner table. This morning I was able to tape them doing the part of the movie where the penguins have all woken up on ship and have asked the monkeys in a cage next to them to tell them where they are going...... the choking part at the end is where the penguin(Rico) coughs up a paperclip to pick the lock on the cage.) Enjoy

How Long Is Too Long?

The boys had a super long bath this afternoon(they were cleaning their trains). Anyway, A's fingers and toes were very wrinkled after the bath so I tried to capture it with a pic.

I was getting breakfast ready and looked over at E sitting at the table and couldn't believe how big a guy he was, so I took a picture. What do you think?? Does he look bigger to anybody else?

HrsDrawn Sleigh

We had an awesome day today. The kids loved the horses and the ride and the weather was FABULOUS.

Here's all my boys. And what I think is a nice fun photo of me and the boys investigating the area.

After the ride we got to meet all the horses in the barn. The boys loved them.

M took this awesome photo of the horses pulling us and a pic I took of the inside of the barn.

Friday Update

Interestingly enough when I went to start dinner last night I found a toy car in the fridge...I took a picture and then I left it there in case it was out there on purpose. Sure enough, this morning it was gone so whoever put it there must have retrieved it. We also have a new addition to our garage playroom for the winter. Our friend down the street is letting us use this for the winter and I think the kids will get a lot of fun out of it.

O..k. this is just silliness. A was keeping me company while I folded the laundry last night and when I asked him if these were his underwear he tried them on. What a riot!! I think he looks so cute in daddies skivvies.

I caught this photo of the boys sound asleep together the other night.

These are pics of A being Clffrd the Bg Rd Dog and E being Trvor the cat.

This is a very rare photo of A with his hair combed.

Thanks to AuntieJnn for saving all her used tubes for us! We were finally able to build our marble runs. It was super fun. The video is of us trying them out, I think they worked pretty great!

Does anybody remember the basement wall?? Well if you haven't been here in a couple of weeks you probably don't know that I redid that wall. Back to boring.....now I have to think of something else cool to do!

A was playing on the hockey table with his stuffed animal. When A wanted to take a break he went in the back room and got the stool. He told daddy he needed something for his feet. Then he assumed the position of comfort.......he's a natural.
We had a couple of visitors on Saturday night and the kids all had a snack and a cartoon before heading to bed. This last pic of me is courtesy of E's camera. I like this picture, certainly better than the one he took of me laying in bed first thing in the morning with A. Not a pretty shot. You'll have to trust me on that because it will NOT be going on the blog.

The boys were playing with the vacuum downstairs the other day and A thought it was absolutely hysterical to stick it to his belly. Then it was time for some quiet with daddy on the couch.

I went to the show the other night with my mom and got to be all dressed up.
Also, M had a great idea and put some glow sticks in the kids bathtub and they had their bath with the lights lowered. Neat idea.
I think the boys have a great brotherly relationship. Most of the time they love each other(see picture above) but then every once in a while.......(see video below).

Just Because

Thanks to the wonderful tutoring of my friend down the street M and I have been able to cut our monthly grocery bill by a significant amount in the last six months or so. One of the by-products of this is that we buy all of our groceries for the month at one time (two stops: the bulk store you all know and love and Loblows).

Here are all the groceries that we will eat this month. We will have to get more milk and bread and fruit but this is the bulk of it. All we will need for brkfst, lnch and dinner for four for one month.

E and A have been enjoying these bath tub crayons that they have.We were pretty impressed with his writing of his numbers!!!
