Only in Alaska

Two days ago I ran outside in the glorious sun and my runnin' shorts. Today it snowed 6 inches and it continues as I type. We are all dealing with our cabin fever in various ways.

Avery is playing.

Dad is in denial. You gotta love those legs.

Quinton and Austin are driving each other crazy.

And Jace, of course, is happy no matter!
Oh, and I, of course, am blogging.... and sobbing uncontrollably.

Kethcup Packets

Stay with me people, this is going to be a tad painful.
The other day I was nonchalantly getting ready to use the facilities. As I gently parked my self down upon the toilet seat, I heard a great CRACK!

"Oh, my word," thought I, "It has finally happened, I have busted the toilet seat."

Upon my removal from said facilities, I rose to find a suspicious substance splattered all around the toilet. I lifted up the toilet seat to get a closer inspection, only to find two exploded ketchup packets, obviously placed with some delicate care by the placer.

The culprit? Well I naturally assumed it to be my fun loving husband, and spent most of the day chuckling about his funny joke. But when I asked Austin if he knew anything about ketchup packets, (assuming, again, that dad had shared his funny joke) Austin replied, "Nope I don't, but Quinton put some on your toilet!"

Quinton?!!! Seriously!! It just cracks me right up all over again to think that a 7 year old came up with that trick. I met him at the door upon his arrival from school and said, "I had an interesting experience on the toilet today." Where upon he burst into hysterics and shouted, "you thought you broke the toilet!!!"

By the way, apparently he DID NOT come up with that trick on his own. Don't ever let your kids read a book called Capt. Underpants.

PS I just reread this and apologize for all the "where upon's, and naturally's" I just watched Pride and Predjudice and Emma. I think it is time for a vacation from all things Victorian.

Quinton: Mom do you know what my lucky number is?
Me: I'm gonna guess 7.
Quinton: Nope, It's TWENTY-seven.
Mom: Oh I see, why is TWENTY-seven your lucky number?
Quinton: I don't know.

Remember When

This video was taken when Austin and Quinton were 1 and 3 respectively. It was meant as a b-day gift for my mom, but I am not sure she ever saw it. My posts have been Q&A lacking as of late, and since the boys have mostly been up to soccer and school, and I've nothing new to report I thought this would suffice. I can't believe how much they have grown. It seems so long ago that they were toddlers.

Sleeping Cutie

Ahhh! The days when one could fall asleep vertically on a couch.

I smell T-R-O-U-B-L-E

What a stinker! Yes, Jace has earned the age old trick of forageing for sustenance. He's a regular hunter gatherer, what with the state of the dining room floor after Avery has attempted to get her dinner from plate to palate, he can have a meal any time of the day! I have started sweeping three times a day just to make sure old dried hotdogs don't find there way into his chubby little hands. He has discovered were mom keeps the crackers, and Mike found him happily helping himself. Don't ya just want to reach through and give him a squish!
