Fun With Play-Doh!

My kids LOVE Play-Doh. (OK, so who doesn't?) It usually ends up in their hair, on their clothes, and in Livi's mouth, but they have a blast! I wish I were as creative as they are ... a girl can only make so many snakes. :-)

Story Time!

Every Wednesday, I take the kids to Story Time at the library. After Story Time, they choose new books to take home for the week. Joshua always picks the strangest books. I beg him to choose fun bedtime stories that we can enjoy together, but he insists on getting these educational books about animals, insects, the desert ... books I can hardly read aloud without falling asleep. This week, he was most excited about a book entitled "Snails, Clams, and their Relatives." Great ...

Our Fairy Princess ...

Every Halloween, I go WAY overboard when it comes to my kid's costumes. I start shopping 4 months in advance, and I usually change my mind at least 3 or 4 times (Seriously- how does Jason put up with it?) I figure dressing my kids up is one of the great perks of motherhood. :-) My first purchase for Livi this year was this adorable fairy costume. Unfortunately, I decided to go with a different "theme", so this one will be sold on ebay today ... Sad. At least I got some cute pictures out of it!

My 3 Kids ...

We have been working on counting with Joshua. I'm always asking him to count things we see in our house, in books, etc. Yesterday I asked Joshua, "How many kids do I have?" Without hesitation, he said "Three-Joshua, Livi, and Pa!"

Labor Day Fun!

We had a little family barbeque on Labor Day. The kids tasted their first corn on the cob, and they were loving life! Livi ate 2 entire cobs by herself, and Joshua told me, "This is awesome! You're the best Mom!" Dinner was followed by a full-on wrestling match between Jason and the kids, after which Joshua informed me, "Mom, you're not the best now. Pa's the best!" I guess It was nice while it lasted ...
