Stop Eating the Wall!!!

This past week has been so hectic. Justin worked between 14-18 hours a day, so we didn’t see him except 5 minutes on Thursday. I have been running around getting food bought and prepared for program committee picnic, went to Daddy’s softball game,  I did a weeks worth of homework (suppose to be doing more now), cleaned house, kids did their first finger painting, I painted the wall (needs repainted again), planted 5 plants, visited with my parents, went out to lunch for my grandmothers 85th birthday, went to the dentist, went to the science center, and the list goes on. I have had PLENTY of things worthy of posting, but couldn’t find the time. Therefore, here is another post pieced together with a little of this and a little of that…

My kids are getting bigger, sitting in the big kid grocery seats0925091038 0925091038a

- Alexis has been running around the arms out, chasing her brother saying “I get you, I get you” SO cute, then when she does get him, she tackles him and they both laugh. She keeps running up to him and giving him hugs and kisses and proceeds to tackle him and just lay on him laughing, he likes it for a little while, but then gets frustrated and starts to cry. She doesn’t understand yet, why he doesn’t like it.

-First finger-painting experience. They loved it, but of course, like everything we do, it ended with tears, because cousin Zach wouldn’t let Alexis eat the purple paint.P9230001 P9230005 P9230003  P9230002 P9230008P9230007

- Alexis has been climbing on the back of the couch so she can chew on my wall; peeling off the paint. Now, she has learned to climb over to get what is on the other side, like candles, dirty dishes, soap dispenser, or what ever else her little hands can grab.0730091043

-Scary moment with JB… I started unloading the dishwasher, and like a good mommy I took out the silverware first so they wouldn’t grab it. As soon as I turned away, I heard the swoosh and fling of metal. I looked down and Jeremiah was running away waving the butcher knife above his head. (knife was on top shelf of dishwasher). I started to walk towards him, slowly and quietly not to alarm him. But he went faster and looked as though he was going to fall. All of a sudden I spouted out “Jeremiah Brian you STOP!” in the loudest, toughest, scariest, Mom voice ever heard. He froze, then turned around, and pointed the knife straight at me (trying to give it back). He proceeded to run towards me. It was difficult but I managed to get it out of his hands before either of us was killed.

-We went to the Members Only Preview of the Robots Exhibit. It costs an extra $2 normally to go see this. If you are wondering if you should pay the extra, I would not recommend it. I’m glad we got in free.P9250009 P9250016 P9250012

- Program committee picture day for Thanksgiving Program. I think everyone had fun… at least I hope they did! 0925091649

As you can see, I made LOTS of Mac and Cheese!!!!!0925091720a 0925091716a IMG_3744 IMG_3741IMG_3921IMG_3920  

All in all, it was a hectic, but a darn good week!

Glad to know about the Robot exhibit... We were talking about doing that with the homeschool group. I'll mention it to the moms and we may rethink it... How about the rest of the Science Center though... Good idea for our kids (Trish, Amy K, Beth, Jenn Y and I)?
Why didn't I take any pictures of my kids dressed up at the picnic? They looked so cute!
(My kids came running over saying "I know who that is! It's Jeremiah! And Alexis!" They were very excited!)

Cute Pic's and good recap of a typical very busy week for the mom of twins. All the kids at the picnic at Church will be all grown up before you know it, then they will be doing the work and you can enjoy it like I did.

Picnic turned out well! Lots of mac n cheese :) Oh and at least you can be thankful for no lead based paint!

all the kids look super cute sitting there eating together. The painting looks like a blast, even though they are messy he he. Justin looks fab.
