Horse or train?

Amelia says "chugga choo choo" while sitting on her Sisterbeth. Odd
all around.

2 girlies colorin'

Bet these two woulda beat the Steelers this week!

Heh heh.

Taken 30 seconds ago

iPhones are great. I took this and posted it within a minute. Live
blogging life.

Amelia coloring, feet crossed, just like a big girl.

Ellie acting out a scene from the bible

Just goofin' at the Big K

I prefer my toaster strudels with less icing than most people.

Ok, I just took this pic and don't know why. So now you just wasted a
minute of your life on it. Use your time a little more wisely, eh?

Girl and leaves -- a brief photo essay

Amelia wrote this "A"

Total coincidence. But I had to document it anyway.

I need to move back home

This was enough snow to snarl up Cincinnati for a morning. If I'm
gonna deal with traffic, I might as well get some real snow along with

Exchange with Amelia

A: Medicine.

Me: no, you don't get medicine.

A: sister did.

Me: well, sister has a cold.

Why am I having this argument with a baby?

Orders from Amelia

"Come on Papa. Draw hippo now."

"Come on Papa. Find lid now." She was looking for the cap of her
forehead thermometer. I didn't know she knew it could be called a lid.

I'm not sure why, but I'm finding these funny things to be told to do
by a 19-month-old.

What a poser!



Amelia was very popular that day.

At the museum with cousins

Mason had an inservice day so my mom and I took the kids to the museum.  I don't know about the kids but we were worn out.

I was very proud of Elizabeth for climbing up by herself.

I'm not too sure about that bus driver

He looks a little crazy.

2 girls playing with dinosaurs

Elizabeth had them in a parade.  Only the nice ones were allowed to be in it.  Amelia made them tap dance.  I'm not kidding.

Look at those baby blues!



22 people at my mom's house for Thanksgiving.  10 of them were children.  It went very well, actually.  And isn't that turkey beautiful?

Great quote from Elliebean

"You know what? God is the boss of Mama…and the President!"

Too bad the President doesn't acknowledge that.

OK, she didn't day that last bit. But she did say the first part.

Elliebean as Snow White

She was going to a princess party. She had fun.

Just funny


a fairy butterfly princess and an insect.

Gee, who's the first kid and who's the neglected second kid?

Just kidding, we did it on purpose. Junebug, get it?

Just cute. That's it.


This was the result of one single Oreo. One.


Punkin with a pumpkin

Ellie drew it and I carved it. It rotted pretty quickly, though.
