Nothing But Trouble

June 25th, 2009

This is why I cannot let the boys free in the house unsupervised… I was upstairs getting dressed when Sammy decided that the fishies needed to be fed. Result: two overly fed, sick little fish and a stinky fish food mess to clean. Have I mentioned recently that my morning sickness has returned and does anyone know what fish food is made out of? If not, you probably do not want to know…


More Silliness from Boys

June 23rd, 2009

Today I had Patrick clean up his room. Now he has a toy bin with several bins which are each one of three different colors. Well, today when he was cleaning his room, he decided to put all the blue toys in the blue bins, the green toys in the green bins and the red toys in the red bins. What about all the yellow or orange toys? Any toy that did not fit into those three color groups got thrown on top of his dresser. Other than that, the room was completely clean. What a silly boy… I think he gets his color OCD from me, that sounds like something I would have done growing up 😛

The Magic Hole

June 23rd, 2009

Too cute not to mention.

Today I was unloading the dishwasher when Sammy took out the little clear plastic stopper on the dishwaster door where the jet dry goes in (although we use those jet dry tabs, so we don’t even use it…). I looked at him and told him to put it back right away. He then stuck his finger in where the stopper had just been and said, “Mama, it a magic hole”. I have no idea where he got that idea, but it was definitely cute 🙂

Time Flies…

June 23rd, 2009

Three years ago today we closed on our very first house. We were also preparing for the arrival of our second son, who we didn’t realize would be coming exactly a month and a day later!

Two years ago we were pregnant again, and on the verge of finding out that we were about to have our third boy! We were also preparing to celebrate Sammy’s 1st birthday, in which we did a Very Hungry Caterpillar theme.

One year ago we were preparing to celebrate the second birthday of Sammy with a hedgehog theme. We were also considering the possibility of adding to the family one last time…

So here we are. We’ve lived in this house for 3 years now, which is a good half of our married life. We have also doubled the number of kids we have from almost 2 to almost 4. We have painted 9 rooms in this house, we have added shelves, a plant ledge, network wiring, in-wall speaker wiring, and still have plans for more improvements, including possibly a play/storage room off our family room utilizing dead space under the staircase (but that’s something you’d have to ask Andrew about!).

I definitely never expected that we’d be where we are now when we moved into this house, but it has proven to be a great home for three little active boys and I’m sure we’ll continue to feel that way as we add our fourth little man to the family, along with maybe a puppy in 6-12 months from now 😉

Congratulations, Rachel and Alex!
