Life at home

Life is never dull around here, that's for sure! First, here's a pic of Amanda in her jewelry Grandma gave her for Easter last year. I accidentally put it away and forgot about it, but Mike found it and she wanted to put it on. So here she is.

I asked Mike to get a picture of me with Kevin. He often falls asleep after eating, and I love that he falls asleep on my shoulder :)

Amanda has figured out how to use my camera (smart girl!) and while most of the pictures she takes are of the ceiling, she got a funny one of the oranges she was eating one day.

These next two pictures are from Amanda's Thanksgiving program at daycare. She sang "The Alphabet Song", "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" and "Thank You God". Mostly she jumped around the stage and the teachers sang, but it was cute anyway :)

This was a horrendous temper tantrum she threw one night that lasted a good half hour because she wanted to watch TV and not come eat dinner. So I took a picture to tease her about it later in life!

This next series is how I found her one Saturday morning. She found her Dora bandaids and opened them ALL! Now, keep in mind she never wants a bandaid when she hurts herself, so I have no idea why she felt she had to open them all!

And here is a picture showing that she would rather play with a laundry basket and tennis balls, than all the expensive toys we get for her! Figures!

Happy Halloween!

Here's Amanda checking out all her loot from the school trick-or-treat on Friday. She meticulously took everything out of the bag and told me "Look Mommy!"

Halloween night, here's Kevin all dressed up as the Little Devil.

And both kids (including a very tired Amanda who refused to take a nap earlier in the day) ready to go trick-or-treating.
