Here's an idea...

A man at my stepdad's work owes my neice money since she washed his tires. She was complaining to my stepdad about it so he called the guy and handed over the phone.

They went back and forth for a while then we hear my neice say, "Here's an idea, how about you open a coffee or lemonade stand..."

Then she hangs up on him.

A tooth!

We have a tooth. Wish I guess explains the fever she's had for the last two days.
The second one on the bottom isn't far behind.

Stunt Woman

Went for a walk around the hood - Kenzie cried about being buckled in, so I let her out for a she is performing for us.
(not sure of the date)

Landon asked me to sing him "Lullaby"  Braham's lullaby has always been the song I sing to him. He usually sings with me.
Tonight he asks, "what's dawn?" (Pleasant dreams until the dawn)
I say that it's when the sun comes up.
Lan, "Well why don't you just say that. It would make more sense."

Landon REALLY wants a pet. (Not happening.)

This morning he told me that if he had a cat he would keep it away from me (I'm allergic.)  He said he'd keep it in his room all the time.

He thought about that for a little while, then said, "That's not a good idea, because it would probably break all my toys."

Perfect...I don't even have to convince him not to get one.

Sunday Best


Landon's started riding his bike again (now that the weather ia nice!)
We discovered he needed the next size. So we made a late trip to Toys R Us and found a "ka-pow mongoose"

Bry started putting it together this afternoon.

Let's make a deal

Last night, after I had gotten Kenzie to sleep, Landon was sitting on the couch watching a movie on his "phone" (droid tablet.)

He clapped his hands and I said, "Lan - don't clap, sister is sleeping."

He pauses his movie and says, "Mom, let's make a deal."
Me: ? (LOL)
Lan: "If I clap one more time, I'll turn off my movie."

Bahhahaha...I told him it was okay if he clapped again, just to try not to.

Really, really crawling

Kenzie's been moving for some time now, more than a month.
But now I would say she really, really, really crawls.  She's all over the place now.  No more can we set her down in the living room with some toys and expect her to stay there while we do something else around the house.

And even funnier, she crawls, with one leg sort of under her.  Just like her cousin and some of her second cousins.  But it doesn't slow her down.  That girl can move.

Also - she pulls up on EVERY THING!  And then, THEN, she walks around the living room...from couch to chair, to toy, to walker.  She's crazy.  She's learned how to "gracefully" fall down to a sitting position. 

A whole other stage of life...crazy how fast they grow up.  Especially when you don't want them to.

Long weekend, and a sick baby

With the big "storm" coming in, they pretty much shut every thing down in anticipation.  I worked from home on Thursday, fully expecting to have to get the kids after lunch before the 'storm' came in. snow.  The "storm" didn't come through until middle of the night Thursday, and froze everything. They shut down JSC on Friday, and we had a nice stay home day.  The L's picked up Landon from school and dropped him off Thursday evening.  We all had some coffee and hung out.  Then Friday, every one came over and we just bummed around the house.  Played Wii and ate Pizza.

On Saturday, the L's took Landon to gymnastics and then kept him while Bryan and I took Kenzie to the Dr.  She has double ear infection.  Which explains why she's been so clingy.  Sunday she hit an all time low.  She was crying and basically screaming (I know, I should have taken video to prove this.)  As long as I held her, she did okay, most of the time.  She wouldn't take her paci and didn't want to eat much.  Poor girl.

Bryan and I are both coming down with something too. We woke up not feeling well, drainage, sinus pressure.  Guessing we have colds. Bryan volunteered to stay home with the kids.  Hoping he manages okay today.

Landon fell asleep like this watching cartoons.  Think he was a little tired?

Cleaning Up

Landon "was" helping me clean up - then he thought of a better idea.
