We had some visitors over and of course A and E were bouncing off the walls. Head butting their legs, jumping on their back and freaking out. So I chucked them both in the kitchen and told them, "You are out of control." Angrily A turns to me, hands on his hips and snaps, "No Mom! YOU are out of control!"

A comes up to me and tells me very officially, "Mom, I'm smarter than you. I'm not smarter than Dad, but I am smarter than you."

A and E were wrestling today and it was A's day. He was doing really good keeping his little brother subdued, although E put up a pretty good fight. Once they were finished, Daddy and I told E he did a really good job! He looked over at Daddy M angrily from the floor and said, "No, I din not!!" he flailed his arms on the ground and continued, "He's still alive!"

E and A were playing T-ball today with A's new gear. I of course laid down the rules. No hitting anyone with the bat. No swinging at the ball until every body and body part is clear. Simple enough. Not 5 minutes into it, I hear a blood curdling scream from A. E runs inside, eyes big, and says, "I din'n know what I was doing!" Big brother had a pretty good goose egg on his head.

Thanks for the Help

First Snow

 This morning, we had snow! And it was SO exciting that a little certain someone couldn't even wait to get his clothes on. As a matter of fact, I remember putting him to bed in clothes and then waking up to him.... not, it clothes. I'm not sure when this transition took place. BUT it did. :)

The boys and I rushed to get our breakfast eaten, so we could go play in the snow! We couldn't go in the backyard because there were doggy poo poo bombs back there. But the front yard was perfect! Poor E was not well equipped. He had the boots, the hat and the gloves, but no real water resistant snow coat or pants. Luckily, we had the time to go and do that today. So the next time you see the handsome little man, he'll be decked out in his new gear!
 We bought the boys this sled last year, but A was deathly afraid of sledding down hills, so the poor thing just sat sadly last year in our closet. BUT it appears that it will have a more useful season in the months to come! This is the photo were you can see that they are the lucky bums that get to ride in the thing, while I on the other hand get to be their work horse. I pulled them in circles for at least 20 rounds and let me tell you.... my kids are NOT lightweights!
 We got to play with doggy A today as well. We weren't sure how much she'd actually appreciate snow, but she did a really good job! She ran around trying to eat it and chomped on more fall leaves than I'm sure she appreciated. There was a ball involved for a while. But poor doggy A is not so bright. I would throw the tennis ball and then it would bounce in the snow at her feet and she would step all over it, desperately trying to find it. We'll forgive her for her "not smart-ness" (A won't let me call her the stu**p word, I get in trouble if  I do) though, her good looks will get her further than her tiny brain!
At the end of our morning play, both kidos got to go inside and complete the snow experience with some yummy HOT CHOCOLATE!!!! I LOVE hot chocolate.... aaaand rightly so; my kids do as well!
