On his own terms

video

My sweet boy finally decided to that he wanted to learn how to ride his bicycle.
He asked Jeff to take the training wheels off, and 10 minutes later he was riding his bike!

I think this is how this child works...he has to decide he wants to do something before he will be successful. I am hoping that he will do this SOON with his reading before I pull all my hair out!

He wanted me to make a video of him riding like his Aunt Fav. did for her son, but this is all I was able to do. He wanted the music and all, and he said that I could just sing the song..." I want to ride my bicycle"...so just hum that tune while watching the video!


***Here is the new and improved video with many thanks to Aunt Fav. and her awesome abilities we now have music added! Here's to my little boy!

of spiders

(Jamie, Katherine)

skip this post!!!







Check out this black beauty that I came across while working in my flower beds today! I wish that I had taken "her" picture next to something so you could understand how big it was! I think she might have been about to burst with babies or something. Anyway I played with it for a while and made it flip over and do tricks all in the name of photography before sending her on to spider heaven! We find black widows all over around our house (outside). The kids have even gotten good a spotting a widow web! We go on hunts every so often and get rid of the ones that we find. Hopefully the population around our house is dwindling!

Guess who??

Okay this has been cracking me up, so I just had to write a post about it. A couple of weeks ago Nana gave Pipi this sheet of barbie head stickers.

She has been putting them all over the place.

For a while I would hear her and JJ talking about them and Grandma Wilson. They kept saying there is Grandma Wilson.

Of course when I finally tuned into them I cracked up laughing.

This sticker is the one that they keep saying looks like Grandma Wilson.

So here's to you Grandma Wilson...you go girl...you are now in the Barbie elite club! We love you!

spies

My kids love to play "spy". Lately they have really gotten into it. L.C. wants me to buy him a black suit jacket to use as a spy. Here he is all decked out!


We have also found another use for J.J.'s "man coat"! He can either wear it to church, or be a spy...I guess that would make him a double agent. L.C. helped him get dressed in this getup...don't you just love this little spy????

This one has a face


SNOW DAY!! Gotta love it...for about a day! We got a lot of snow yesterday and decided to go sledding again at the ninth grade academy. I don't know if I should let others know our spot, but the hill is perfect for us! It snowed on us the whole time. The snow was great for building, and we were able to put together this little guy in no time. Everyone did help this time, so he even got a face and arms.





video

This is just a short clip of my sweet girl...I love the little laugh at the end!

Jealous means...


First of all I just have to say that I love when babies feel so secure and safe that they sleep with their arms wide open. Last night when I went to tuck everybody in I found these two sleeping like that! I know they are not babies anymore (so sad), but It still makes my heart smile!

Tonight during dinner someone said something about being jealous, and this smart girl said "Jealous means being green with envy." Jeff and I just looked at each other!
