Two New Pictures

This picture was taken on Sunday morning. Carole packed one of her board books in her purse and ran to the gate and said, "Go. Go 'side." Translation... Go outside. :-)

Andrew was laying on the couch watching TV with his hand on his cheek. I thought he looked so cute I went and got the camera. He turned and looked and gave me this cute expression.

Bathtime dessert

I just had to share this video. Strangely enough, our daughter loves to eat the bath soap. Whenever we are washing her or Andrew, she is constantly trying to lick whatever soap she can. In this video clip she is "licking" Andrew just like one would an ice cream cone. :-) Sadly, Andrew did not like being Carole's dessert.
First of all, I am going to start off by saying that our living room lamps are in BAD shape. Mmmm... I wonder how they got that way? The shade on one of them is barely hanging on and falls off a lot. Well, today Andrew bumped the end table as he rumbled by and the shade fell clean off. Carole immediately erupted into tears. She came running up to me in a tearful voice saying, "Ma ma, uh-oh, uh-oh." She took my hand with one hand and pointed to the broken lamp with her other hand as she led me over to the scene of the crime. She did not stop crying until the lamp was fixed. I just thought it was so cute how she was very concerned about the lamp being broken. Maybe she thought she would get in trouble for it. :-)

Today I took the kids to the grocery store by myself. That was an interesting trip. I can say it was the first time Carole went to the store without screaming and embarrassing me. I had Carole in the baby carrier on my front and Andrew in the cart. All in all, it went pretty well. Maybe that is because I brought a container of goldfish crackers. So it wasn't so bad until we got to the checkout counter. Andrew was holding onto food and not letting the cashier take it. While I was trying to deal with him Carole was pulling everything out of my purse that was sitting on the counter. One thing is for sure, the cashier and the bagger got their laughs for the day. The cashier said, "Don't you normally come with just one of them or by yourself?" YEP! :-)

Random Pictures

This picture was taken on Sunday. Carole got a new dress from Papa and Nana in the mail. It is one of her longest dresses. I think she must have felt like a "lady" wearing it because that morning she pranced around with a purse on each arm and her phone on her shoulder. Sadly, I was not able to get a picture of that. As soon as she sees me get the camera, she drops what she is doing and does something silly.

This picture I just took today shortly after I laid her down for her nap. She was so tired, she went right to sleep. That is rare for her. Usually she she likes to play in her bed for awhile before giving in to sleep.

I took this picture right after lunch when Andrew was doing his "business." I walked into the bathroom and found him in this pose. :-)

Oscar the Grouch

On Monday night we were playing "hide and go seek." Monday night is also the night we collect our household garbage. Thankfully I had just finished emptying the diaper pail and spraying it with Lysol. When we went to look for Andrew this is where we found him! :-) At first he thought it was funny until he realized he was stuck in there. Don't worry, we got him out!

Recent Pictures

Yesterday I walked in the room to find that Andrew had dressed Carole up. He was so proud of himself. He said, "Look Mom! Carole is a conductor now!"

The kids love playing in the tub. One night I was taking pictures of them hugging each other and this is the face Carole gave me!

Carole loves putting things on her head. I tied this hankerchief around her head and she proudly paraded through the house.

This is a classic Carole expression. I would have to say that Carole probably smiles at least 75% of her day.

Andrew's hair was getting so long that Phil decided to slick it back to see what it would look like. Andrew told me, "Mom, my no like my hair like this." It didn't stop him from making a funny face for the camera! :-)

Our Dancing Kids

Last night I put in a Salvador CD and Phil and I sat back and watched our kids "cut a rug." It was hilarious. This is just one of the 7 clips I videoed last night. Enjoy!
