Oh Cal, what am I to do with you....

Okay, just imagine that you're Cal. You pull up a stool, toy, etc. to the counter like you usually do to give yourself a boost (just to see what you can eat, play with, etc.) and you see this....

A bowl of corncob holders (I had them out in a bowl drying - lots of corn on the cob eaten this T-day).....

and, Mommy's new coffee pot with these cool holes.....

Hmmmm...... what do you do?

Fun while Mommy's away....

So, Monday was my birthday. My girlfriends took me out for a fabulous dinner at Cafe Excel (my favoritest place ever). Thanks again girls! I know that the kids have fun with Daddy while I'm away... but, seriously, how much fun can they have without Mommy? So, Tuesday Daniel was telling me about how they all three rode around on this plasma car we have. He said that he made a little "course" to ride - pulling back rugs and moving some furniture. I was having a hard time believing that he would go through that much trouble to entertain the kids (forgetting that he's just a big kid himself and it was Daddy being creative and entertaining himself - added bonus of entertaining the kids). That evening, he decided to give me a little peek at their "fun while Mommy's away."

Pie anyone?

So, Jamie, Jennifer and I were visiting in the living room during the Aggie game (WHOOP!). Cal walked in.... tummy full and the evidence all over his face and hands. He was coming in to ask me to "washy hans" (wash hands). I couldn't help but laugh.... I think Cal was surprised by the humor I found in the situation.... so, he was more than happy to reenact his very own pie eating contest so that I could snap some pictures.

Thanksgiving Fun!

Lots of fun stuff happening over Thanksgiving.... Jamie, Jennifer and the kids joined the rest of the family here in CS. We had our big turkey dinner (lunch) here at my house. The menu was endless (I think we counted 10 sides... plus rolls and 4-5 desserts). And, every bit of it was delicious... just ask my hips. Here are a few pictures... more to come soon.

Sometimes, at our house....

I figured that I'd better come up with something to post before I get into big trouble. Just a few "goings on" in our home...

Sometimes, in our house.... can find a turtle chauffeur and let the wind blow through your hair while you cruise in your cool dune-buggie... at least if you're "Leo".

.... Buzz dresses in Drag.
....we read books... or at least look at pictures of cool cars.
.... and, green marker makes a great lip-stick and tatoo.

Catching up

Well, I was informed yesterday that I am a terrible blogger (thanks Lee). I just didn't think anyone was interested in our boring and mundane lives. Evidently, there are readers out there and they want more! Sweet! We are loved and important to someone! Normally (well, all the time), everyone just wants to see pictures of the twins and to read about all the crazy and cute things they've been doing. I sat down to look through my camera and see if there was anything interesting to post. I did come across some fun pictures that I'll share.

Paw paw came over the other night and he and Daniel got on this great website to look at aerial maps (okay, I say 'great' with total sarcasm.... what I mean is boooorrrrriiiinnnngggg). At least Cal thought it was interesting. I promise, I took this picture without setting it up.... that's exactly how they were sitting... cute huh?

Sunday evening the Perkins crew came over for dinner (our usual hot and ready pizza). Denise got suckered in to doing "tummy bubbles". What a fun Aunt Neesy (or Measy)!

I had the great privilege of having Isaiah all to myself the other day while Denise and Mike went on a field trip with Chloe. I've had a hard time getting Patti and Cal to be nice to babies (most kids want to love on them and hold them.... haha, yeah right.... they're more of a nuisance to my kids. My kids like to push them down, take toys away from them, and then whack them with the toys they just took away). Well, we've come a long way... here's Cal sharing cheerios with Isaiah (the Cheerios he just stole from him of course).

This one is just cute....

Okay, this is funny.... I have this little tricycle on top of my fridge for decoration. Patti has asked for it a million times and I finally thought 'why not?' Well, she became very frustrated when she couldn't ride it around the kitchen. Huge meltdown. That would be the first and last time I get the bike down.

I really wasn't much in the Halloween spirit (that really doesn't make much sense does it?) this year. Cal was Dash from the Incredibles and Patti was originally a princess (but she became a cat when she decided that she didn't like the princess dress). We just went to see Lee and the puppies and then to Walmart to see Paw paw. The kids are still a little young to get the whole concept.
Even super heroes need to have their blood pressure checked!

They had this child-sized pony
at Walmart... very life like and it had sensors on it's nose, shoulder and back. Any time you touched it, it would "may" (as Patti says). The kids loved feeding it and brushing it.

Just one more thing.... Patti and Cal have been talking so much more lately (I was almost starting to worry about it). Anyway, some of Patti's new words are just too cute and I have to share:

Owl: Alo

Movie: Noomy

Buzz Lightyear: Bob Wike-ear
