I found a cute way to share pictures from the baby boy's first taste of cereal today. Click below and browse the little scrapbook I made. One page even has a little video.

Magic Marker Monday

This is a picture that the miss drew a couple of weeks ago. It has taken up residence on our fridge, because I love it.

It is a picture of her and her good friend, "Turbo", walking together under a rainbow.

She actually drew it for him.

So now that I have it scanned in, I will give the original up and allow it to go to its rightful owner.

Do you have some wonderful children's artwork that you would like to share?
Well then, grab your artist’s work off the refrigerator and join in. Or just hop over to 5 Minutes for Special Needs to check out the artwork and meet some inspiring little artists. (This carnival is open to all children’s artwork - not just children with Special Needs.)

Photos Galore

And these are older, but I just received them, FINALLY.
(You can click on them to make them a bit larger)

These were taken back in May after the miss cut some of her bangs, which explains her funny bangs issue in these photos.
Also, I apologize for what my scanner did to these photos...I know they aren't very clear.

My Little Tomboy

The miss starts school next month. Since her birthday is in November, she misses the Kindergarten cut off. She will be starting Pre-K, which she will attend 3 days a week.
We need to get her a backpack, so I was looking at the Target site with her just now, to have her pick her favorite.
We looked at Barbie ones, Hello Kitty ones, solid colored ones, blue ones, purple get the idea.

Here is the one she wants...and she is THRILLED ABOUT....

My daughter will be the one who gets in trouble at school for bringing action figures, with guns and swords attached to them, to school. She likes to take her little Star Wars Miniature guys everywhere with her.

She is obsessed, I tell you.

Happy Birthday, Sara

Today I headed over to Tiff's to make chocolate covered strawberries for Sara's birthday. It was a lot of fun. The kids played nicely together so that we were able to chit chat and relax. I was even able to get some work done too.

The kids kept trying to steal the strawberries, but did listen well when we told them to get away.
Their patience paid off, and they were rewarded with the leftover strawberries and chocolate.

Tiff and I filled a platter with strawberries, topped it off with a candle and surprised Sara this evening.
And then we stole a few of the strawberries, because they were SO GOOD!

Father and Son

I received this in my email from Tiffany, and just HAD to post it here. What an incredible video. I must admit, I got a little teary eyed, but they were the good kind. The video is very uplifting.

First, some background information:

A son asked his father, 'Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?'. The father who, despite having a heart condition, says 'Yes'. They went on to complete the marathon together. Father and son went onto join other marathons, the father always saying 'Yes' to his son's request of going through the race together.
One day, the son asked his father, 'Dad, let's join the Ironman together.' To which his father said 'Yes' too. For those who don't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86kilometer)ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island. Father and son went on to complete the race together. Look at the sons face as they cross the finish line.
