Lizzy and Jill's Weekend


Lizzy has been sick since Wednesday. Since you can't take sick children to the Seattle children's hosiptal, Lizzy and I stayed home and ate Mac & Cheese for dinner and watch a ton of Backyardigins, Dora and Blue Clue.

Weekend of Fun for the Boys





















The boys went to Seattle on Friday. They went to the underground museum which had a lot of cool things I hear. There were real torpedo, submarines, and they actually saw real navy officers. They also went to the Rainforest Cafe, and stone cold ice cream store. Plus we also found out that Thomas doesn't have a heart condition. YEAH!!!!

Twin Day


It was twin day on Thursday and the boys decided they would dress a like. I am glad they are such good friends.

Beach

Running on pier
Looking for shinny rocks and shells


Lizzy climbing (yes, she is getting good)



Ready to dig


Great to be outside




What we did Saturday is---Chris studied all day and the kids and I went to the beach. It has been extra warm this month and there was finally a sunny day so the beach was a great place to spend a couple of hours at. The Kids dug, climbed on rocks, and played on the pier

Dream Park

Lizzy's favorite thing to do when the camera is around, pretend she is sleeping. Another amazing thing about this picture is that she isn't wearing her Cinderalla dress. We are making process when we go to different places and I convince Lizzy her dress would get too dirty to wear for the rest of the day.

Thomas is always climbing on top of things.
Henry is climbing too!!!



Puzzles

Finished puzzle
Thomas almost done

This year in Thomas' class, his teacher always has a 500 piece puzzle going on. She told us during teacher conferences that Thomas is really good at puzzles. She looked surprise when I told her that we don't do puzzles at our house (because I don't like them). So after Christmas, Thomas went to the store and got a puzzle. Yes, he did it in about a week with the help of Chris. I tried to do the outside and gave up after about 5 minutes. He is ready for the next one.

Hanging Out

They look like they are planning something!!!!

Lizzy discovered the sky turns different colors the other day!!! All day long she asks when is the sky going to be pink again. We check when we first get up because the sun is just coming up and at 4:30 when the sun is going down.

Pencils of Power

Well, I have been meaning to blog Thomas' book for almost a month. I wanted to do a slideshow but it was too hard for me to figure out.

Thomas was chosen for Pencils of Power in December. That means he got to go read his paper to the principal and other students who were also chosen. He also got a pencil and easer. His teacher picked him because he made this book on his own time and well it's good. He made a rough draft at school and then came home and did it on the computer. He 3 or 4 hours on a Saturday finishing it. Way to go Thomas.

Hopefully, you guys can read his book. Some of the pictures are hard to read.

Book--Amazing Animals

Wii

So this is what we have been up to. After everything is done for the day, the boys sit down (or stand) and play the Wii. It is really fun. I put some videos of the kids playing because I think it is pretty funny to watch people play it (couldn't get Thomas' Hula Hooping downloaded). Chris even was proud of himself for beating Henry at the boxing game.

Mom and Dad's (without light)


Well, I thought I would post what I made for mine and Chris's parents. Some people have asked to see them.
Sorry haven't posted in awhile. We are pretty boring. I will take pictures this week of what we have been doing. So I guess you will have to come back in a couple of days to see what that is.
