Random Sampler

Me:  "Elli, will you be my valentine?"

Sophi:  "DAD!  She's not a treat!!!"

(By the way, you could probably put every word Sophi speaks in all caps and not be exaggerating:)

I have come to the realization that I feel a distinct thrill of pride when Taylor and Parker tell me how envied their home lunches are and what powerful trading prowess they command.  When I first became cognizant that I found this somehow fulfilling, I felt a bit sheepish.  But I now embrace my domestic triumph.


Xander had a fever the other day and stayed home from school.  He designed a "thermometer holder" so it would always be around when he needed it...:

Green Girls with green lick-m-ade...:
Jess has become quite the reader lately.  She's also a bit of  contortionist.  Combine the two and you get a sense of how she likes to relax...:

And of course when I took a picture of Jesi, Sophi demanded I take a picture of her, too!



  1. You know you are officially old when the ability to pack a good lunch thrills you.

    Your kids are smart, fun, and fantastic!

  2. You sure that Jess and Brianna aren't cut out of the same bolt of cloth? Oh yeah - maybe they are!!

    Great stuff - love "domestic bliss" - it's only day 2 of 10 for Brianna's "boot camp" and I'm already worn out!

    hugs - love you guys - aus and co.
