Burned Hair

Once again I am so far behind it isn't even funny!! Please bare with me as I try to play catch up. I will back date all my posts so they are actually dated to when they happened.

Back to my burned hair. Joe was running late and we were all starving. To show my annoyance.....believe me it wasn't my finest moment, I went out side to light the grill and get it started. Chase was a little fussy so I was holding him. Once again not my finest moment. I turned on the propane and flicked the lighter and a ball of fire came right at my face. Luckily I turned just right and Chase was spared but my arm hair and part of my hair by my forehead was singed. How my eyebrows and eyelashes survived I am not sure but I smelt pretty bad for awhile afterwards.

Its now been almost three months since then and my arm hair is fine but of course the hair by my forehead is still growing out.

Happy Birthday Boys!

We had the boys joint birthday party on September 26th. Bryson's birthday was on the 24th and Carter's birthday was May, 5th. We didn't have Carter's birthday back in May because his arm was still broken. Thankfully Bryson said it was alright and they both have a lot of the same friends so it all worked out.

We had their birthday at the Japanese Water Park. It was a blast as usual. It was the first time for every family that we invited to the Water Park so that made it special for everyone. We were so happy to share a place that we enjoy going to. They all said they would visit there again next summer when it opens back up.

We pretty much just let the kids lose and they just roamed the whole park. It's not like an American park so don't worry we aren't dead beat parents. ;) There are two large slides, one tube slide, the lazy river and then a shallow area with a few cement slides. Though it may not be much it's enough to let them roam and feel safe doing it and the price is awesome. For our family of 5 it costs less than 20 dollars so it's some cheap fun.

How do your kids find peace and quiet?

This is how Bryson does his homework when he comes home from school. He prepars his snack and then shuts himself into the bathroom to read and write his paragraph for school.

Chase is usually running all over the place and being noisy and Carter usually needs me to hold flash cards for him so Bryson found a perfect spot. He is still down here with us and involved but in a more quite space.

I think it's a brilliant idea!

Future Chef

Chase is taking after his uncle George. My brother is a Sous Chef at a very wonderful place in Silver City. The resturaunt is called Shevek & Co. Just click on Shevek & Co and you can check out what they are all about.

Anyway back to Chase. He drags out all our pots and pans and cooks everyday. The older boys never did this so this is very new to us. He always has to have a spatula or a spoon and he will actually sit or sand and cook for hours. He drags the pots and pans everywhere. So much so, that when it's time to make dinner Joe will have to search the house looking for a pot to cook with.

Perhaps just some plastic bowls and some wipes to cook with

But mainly he just prefers pots and pans. He has broken one of our pans so far. In the top pictures you can see the handle laying in front. We had to throw that pan out but besides lots more scratches he has done well. I was thinking of getting some pampered chef pots and pans this christmas but until he grows out of this stage I will save my 700 dollars for another time.

Fun House ~ Walking into walls

The boys and I were looking through old videos and we all laughed at this one. I don't think I have shared this before but it's pretty funny!!

Carter hits the wall at 23 seconds and then again really hard at 53. I give you permission to laugh out loud at 53 seconds. We have always said Carter is our special child ;)

I can feed myself and do it well.

The only people wanting to see this will probably be the grandparents and even then they might not want to see it because it's an old video. I am back dating it at September 16th.

Chase was 16 months and doing so well eating.

I can;t get the video to upload I will try again later.....maybe ;)

Boobie Man - 16 Months

Chase loves boobies. When I hold him he likes to rub my boobies or squish them, or even hit(not hard, more like a tap) them. When my friend Leann comes over Chase likes to very nonchalantly rub his hand across her boobies. Oh and he likes to say boobies!!

Mountain Man

While I was off climbing Mt Fuji Joe took some time off. When he is off he usually grows out his facial hair. He likes to tease me with it because I would rather his face feel like a baby's butt. The boys get a kick out of it when Joe will pin them down and rub his face on theirs. It's quite funny.

Here he is in all his hairy face glory!

Oh and I know the boys hair is really long, for some reason they don't want to cut it and are growing it out.
