We love our cousins!

Just some good ol' fashioned cuzin-fun!

Isaiah wasn't too pleased with the rowdy behavior.

Precious Patti

Long story kids didn't get a nap the other day (Cal can survive without one, but it's rough for Patti). So, I knew they'd be going to bed early (hence an early dinner, bath, etc.). About 7:15, Patti asked for a p.b. sandwich.... and she wanted to sit at "her" table to eat it. Fine... no big deal. Daniel was entertaining Cal and I went on about my business (probably something really important). Anyway, I noticed after several minutes that it was really quiet in the playroom where Patti was eating (since she's figured out that she can sing and make up all kinds of fun stories, she never really stops talking). I went to check on her and this is what I found....

Just hanging out...

Well, the last week has been busy, but we still find time to just monkey around.

Okay, just because I've posted something everyday for several days does not mean this is going to be a new habit for me, so don't get excited.

Patti is my little sweetheart. She is just so good and normally mild-natured. She only gets really worked up when "Bruhder" or "Cow" (Brother-- Cal) comes to annoy her by wanting to play with whatever she's playing with. She tries to get rid of him by saying things like... "No shir (sir)", "Share" or "Be shweet".... even a "Go, go, go!" every once in a while. Well, the other day, she was playing with this castle and drug the thing all over the house to get away from him. Finally, she put it on the dining table thinking this would keep him away. Wrong. He tried every angle possible to get to it. She was having a fit!

Finally, I heard her yell "Go PLAY!" as she pointed to all the toys in the gameroom. I love this picture...

Cal finally gave up and went and got his own castle... the pink one :)
