When you gotta sleep, you gotta sleep.
Harper wants ALL the pretty horses. (We know what Santa is bringing!)
Harper, hard at work. I love how she cocks her head to the side when she's really concentrating.
Claire and Henry with their Lego creations.
Henry's preschool went on a field trip to the grocery store. Yeah, so that's the weirdest field trip ever...he's been to the grocery store a million times with me already. But Henry loved the fish demonstration anyway.
The kids got a little smoothie treat afterwards.
Harper is a little wiz at puzzles.
No school + rainy weather = zoo trip
It was so cute watching Harper stomp around with boots that were a little too big for her.
The kids made a new friend. A few minutes after the kids parked to watch the orangutan, this beautiful creature walked over and parked right in front of the kids. Here she is, giving them a smile.
She especially seemed to like Henry. She rarely took her eyes off of him.
The meteorologists in Oregon are...well...they're somethin'. The forecast was that a massive wind storm, the remnant of a typhoon with hurricane-force winds, 50-ft waves, etc, was set to hit the Pacific Northwest. It was supposed to be more powerful than the active hurricanes at the time. Adam and I even cancelled our date night, concerned that if we left the kids with a babysitter and the power went out or something bad happened , that it would be just to scary for everyone involved. And then the day came and went. We had some rain. We had some wind. And this was the extent of the damage (we will rebuild!):
Eating a sucker with her monkey toes
Q: When your son sleeps in and wakes up just as you are getting into the shower and wants breakfast, and then indicates that he wants yogurt and you have a new box of Gogurt in the fridge and he can reach it so you tell him to help himself, how many Gogurts will he eat?
A: Nine. The answer is nine.
My cute little crazies
Love lazy Sunday afternoons!
Harper, our little miss independent, has decided she wants to dress herself.
She's working on it. :)
