Ready to Help

If the Hawks feel like they need a roster boost for the upcoming bowl game, I know two prime candidates...

Tooth #1

Well we lost the first one last night. It was the one that had been pre-loosened by a towel biting incident. Good riddance.

Trick or Treat

Spider Man and Trash Man were on the loose the other night. Pics are posted.

Andrew's Pumpkin

It's a couple of days early, but we're already in the spirit. Susan hosted a pumpkin carving clinic this evening and Daddy had to close his eyes while the lights were turned out and the final work was revealed.

Scooter Boy

Boys will be boys. We had lots of fun with the scooters and skateboards the other day. Good thing we have helmets!

Butch and RoRo in Town

We love having Butch and RoRo in town. They are welcome back anytime. Madeline has requested it be as soon as possible!

Pumpkin Patch

Nothing beats a good day looking at pumpkins and cows. The cows were definitely the highlight. Pics here.

T in Boots

We had to pry these off his feet the other day....

These Boys Go Fast

Now I know what it's like to go 170 mph around a curve on a NASCAR track. 3 laps was plenty. Those guys are crazy. I'll stick to getting my thrills from biking at 30 mph.

Summer Popsicle

Nothing like kicking back on the porch in the hood and cooling down with a yummy popsicle. The Phalens came to visit tonight and Andrew P and Danny joined our Thomas and Andrew H for some treats while I gave recently unretired triathlete, Amy, a refresher bike maintenance clinic.

Andrew's 4th Bday

Time Flies. Momma put together a two party extravaganza. Andrew had a great time at both. Thanks to everyone for the calls, cards, and gifts. The umbrella is a big hit. Pics are here.

Andrew the Ring Bearer

What a big day for Andrew. He got to be the ring bearer in Tracy and Matt Hugunin's wedding, and then danced his shoes off at the reception. Tracy is a former Stepping Stones teacher and one of Andrew's favorites. Pics are here

Break it down for us Andrew!! (The white blob is his dress shirt. Turn up the monitor brightness for full effect.)

Have you ever tried to get 3 kids to pose for a pic? Impossible. At least they match. Thanks Great Grandma!

On the off chance of a stray reader, L to R is Thomas, Andrew, and cousin Wyatt.

Thomas and Sarah's Birthdays

Our little guy is one - hard to believe. We had the gang over last night to celebrate Thomas and Sarah's Birthdays. Thomas loved the yummy cake Mommy made. Sarah was stylin' in her new hat. Elaine did it again with the barbecue brisket. Pics are here: or on Susan's Kodak Gallery page.

Spring in Lawrence

It was good to get the boys outside today. Andrew ran 10 miles pushing a cart, and Thomas had a blast going down the slide (with help from Mommy). Pics of today and other recent happenings:

Our Boys

Looking at this pic, you'd never know Andrew told his teachers, "no, I'm the teacher," or Thomas fussed all week. Thanks for all the help at home this week Grandma Elaine. Thomas says he just might be up for school on Monday.

Andrew has referred to Darrell Arthur as "Arthur Darrell" so many times that now I'm confused. We should just stick with "Double Zero."

Thomas now smiles when he passes gas. I suppose this is a development milestone for all boys.

New Seat for T

Mom, You're the best. Thanks for my new kitchen seat. It's much better than that yucky high chair.

Just Typing Away

Nothing like a beautiful, sunny Saturday morning to sit down and hammer out a new blog post. Thanks to my Dad for setting up my new blogging station. You rock Dad!

Thomas Chews Gum

Thomas has been watching Daddy way too much!

Andrew Treadmill Dance

Andrew's interpretation of a free-form treadmill dance. We watched the YouTube version that's so popular and I guess he decided to throw out his version. There was more, but this is all I caught on tape.
