one morning i slept in, woke up, poured some cereal, went to the fridge, and i saw this posted on the fridge:
this is my favorite of his work. it is at the bellagio in vegas.
ellie, everett and jack all received kites for "thing 1 and thing 2's" birthday. jack is in LOVE with kite flying now! and truth be told, he's pretty darn good at it for a 3 year old!
this is the look ellie would give us right before letting go and watching her kite get carried away in the wind... what a scamp!
to celebrate a semester well done (straight A's), we bought a cheesecake. i gave ellie a tiny little piece of it one afternoon, went in the laundry room for about 10 seconds, came back and found this:
yes, thats right, cheescake smashed into the back of her head! what drives kids to do the things they do?!
jack started soccer with his buddy connor. he really enjoyed it, all though he would just randomly tackle someone (from his team or the other, it didnt matter), kick the ball way out of bounds and continue running with it, or start swinging at other kids for no reason. he is beyond our understanding!
we ripped out all of our plants and put in some new ones. we had so much fun digging and watering! hopefully we dont have another frost attack anytime soon!
ellie has enjoyed all of her new clothes from her birthday. i have been really surprised at how girly she has become. everytime she puts on a new shirt she says, "ooooooooh toooooot toot! so pity"
translation: "ohhhhhhh cute cute so pretty!"
grandpa browne brought a bicycle home for jack and now he thinks he is the king! i mean, come on, wouldnt you if you were the only kid big enough to ride a bike!
the kids have also been practicing their singing.... unfortunately they dont have the best teacher... and it shows... :) since this video, ellie has been weened from her bottle. whew! it only took 5 months, but we did it!
