Two pretty funny things I've heard from my kids recently... Izzy (learning to cook and bake) "mom, it says next I need 18 servings of yield. What's that?" And Beck (watched Christmas Oranges so many times!) says when he wasn't feeling well the other day, "Mom, does my head feel like Felicity's head in the movie?" (Felicity got sick and dies in the movie). I love what they say.

I can't believe she is old enough...but today she went to 5th grade camp! (dad went as one of the chaperones) She was so excited when I dropped them off to the buses this morning. In fact she's been packed for several days aleady! I can't believe how fast time is going. Yesterday we went to her maturation program at school and learned all about her period, of which she is ecstatic about getting. Who wants that? She does. Oh my little Izzy isn't so little anymore:)

Happy Valentine's Day!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Thought I'd post some pics of this year's Valentine's boxes the kids made (or mostly mom and dad did). We found some cute patterns online via our neighbors. Iz made hers at school with her class so I'll have to post a picture of hers after school.
Isaac and Beck made monsters...they are blue.

Addie's is a robot, obviously.

Again, what did you say?

Okay so I'm loving this stage that Beck is in. He's right on the brink of 4, everything is literal, and he only uses "hers" and "hims" and such words. He keeps us laughing. Last night at dinner, we were eating grilled cheese with soup and he sullenly asks when will he get to have a boy cheese sammich instead of a "girl cheese sammich". None of my kids (that I know of) ever confused the gender of their sammich before:)

What did he just say?

My kids are pretty creative when it comes to trying to get what they want. This was Beck today. Today is Sunday and we'd just come home from church. Isaac was already changing his clothes with his door shut, and ignoring Beck's pleas to open the door. (Which is a constant occurance) Finally Beck changes the tone of his voice to a lower, more grown up soon-to-be 4 year old, and says, "Open the door. It's Jesus Christ."

Poor Beck

About a year ago Beck fell off his bike and smacked his mouth on the ground resulting in his four front top teeth being chipped. The dentist said all was well but to watch the teeth for signs of death. One started to go grey and then all the sudden one day it was totally black. Upon xray, the tooth was dead and there was an abcess up in the root. He never complained that his tooth hurt so I was pretty shocked. In the end, his tooth had to be pulled by a pediatric dentist who put him under to do the deed. Watching him wake from anesthetic was hilarious to say the least. Two other children's surgeries were started and finished AND sent home all in the time Beck was trying to wake up from it. He made no sense when he tried to talk, his eyes were rolling all over the place, and even fell off the couch and couldn't even move his face to be more comfortable. He obviously takes anesthesia pretty hard. Once he went back to preschool a few days later, I asked him how cool it was to show his friends that he already lost a tooth etc...and asked him "And what did Miss Tanya say about your missing tooth?!" "Her didn't listen about it." He seemed so deflated. Poor Beck!
