Peanut's Dancing

I missed a bunch of great Peanut dancing performances during BigE's recent hockey tournament. This is one little nugget to give you a glimpse of how much she enjoyed the music between the whitles.

BigE's First Hockey Tournament

BigE's first hockey tournament was the 67's Experience. They did a great job of giving the kids a sense of larger league play. Goals were announced over the PA and they had these great intros where the lights were dimmed and each player was announced by name.

I love Raspberries

but only when I get to steal them from my sister's bowl. When you give them to me I'm not really that interested.

That was quite a photo Mama got.

I'm so happy!

I love counter surfing!

Happy 7th Birthday

BigE is the big 7 today. He awoke to find an obviously wrapped composite hockey stick from us. However there still seems to be nothing like unwrapping stuff.

as we headed downstairs BigE found the Playmobil police station he'd been eyeing

Several police accessory sets

And the RC helicopter. It was a big hit once it got opened.

Look At Me!

Boy is old Rye Rye getting mobile. And there really does appear to be a certain amount of pride in his accomplishment.
And no comments about letting my child lose into the enterntainment center. He's not watching TV and getting exercise. Heck he's getting exercise on the TV. This is a 10 out 10 activity

Where have you been?

I've been slack and I promise to do it again. Here are some pics of the kids.

The New Bunny

Using the gift from Nanny we headed to Build-a-Bear to make Peanut a new bear. We weren't sure if she would like it but as soon as she saw the place she was excited. That was until the stuffing machine turned on and scarred her a bit. But she made it through.

And now we have Hop the new bunny. Hop made it into the crib last night so I think we have a winner. Here's the pick from the morning snuggle:

How to eat Party Cake

Here is Peanut and her birthday cake. A proper demonstration of how to go for the cake
Peanut trying to eat the cake
After that was stopped here was the revised cake eating on a small piece
Peanut eating some cake
For the record she did use a fork to finish off the icing on her piece. That was before starting to scrap the icing off the rest of the cake.

Kids at the Park

BigE, Peanut and Oh Me on the saucer

Peanut hanging by her self

And joined by Oh Me

Peanut is Two!

Peanut turned two today. So we got up and did the early present thing. From mama and dadda she got a beed necklace and bracelet

Here she is playing with her new food, pots and pans from Auntie Karen in the kitchen. She was very pleased to find these.

After some juice we finished off the morning with some tea.

I don't have a picture but now we need to sit down and read the books from Nanny.

Monkey Sleeps Over

Unlike the WB I managed to only grab one photo of the kids chomping on pop corn during Monkey's recent sleep over.
There are no other pictures. What will we fill this post with? Hmmm. They were were watching Toy Story (first one). The small bowl was a cheesy popcorn with Parmesan cheese. Which BigE does not like. Hence the segregated bowls.

Also BigE want's everyone to know that they stayed up late. Monkey even later as we adjusted the sleeping arrangement to closer match his home. I'm sure BigE has done the same

Peanut helps Big Brother wake up

but gets co-opted by the big person bed!

"Hey I kinda like this!"

Little Mama

This is one I forgot to post a little while ago. Little Peanut wants to be little mama

She was determined to wrap her scarf to produce the same effect.

As a side note that little blue bandage was a fashion accessory. Fortunately that only lasted a few days.

Peanut at the Water Park

Let's just say that Peanut, like her brother, was not an enthusiastic supporter of the whole water park idea the first few times there. Let's say that this picture sums up her feelings:

But slowly we've been making progress. Mama has been taking the kids a bunch of times since we've had all this heat.

However there is always her friend Oh My to hang out with in the chair section

Soccer with Auntie Karen

Speaking of pictures from a while ago there is these shots of BigE playing soccer with Auntie Karen in the backyard.
This was before the Canada Day Soccer field was built. But we still enjoyed the backyard soccer.

And despite a dozen photos this was the best the E-man took


Meet BigE's lego man drawing.

PS I should note that BigE wanted to title this legso. It's not a tpyo!

You know your growing up when you can't sleep across a chair anymore!

Tea and a Cracker

I swear there are times there's a 70 year old lady is trapped in her body. I figure the mess is caused by the motor skills of a toddler

The Thought Process

Dada "Let's clean up and organize the garage"

Mama "I know let's haul everything out so we can sort it all and give everything a home"

Dada "Good idea"

Mama "You know if we're going to clear the garage I wonder how much insulation would cost"

Dada "And drywall"

9 hours later.

Dada "Crap. What was I thinking"

Name That Baby

I was just looking at some pictures when I decided to create Name that Baby.

So is it small, medium or large?

BigE's Softball

Softball season finished last week. It's actually a rather short season. I guess they keep it away from vacations and soccer. Here is BigE's second last at bad.

Peanut on the other hand kept her self busy. When we weren't at the park she climbed up higher to see brother better:

Bye Bye Auntie Karen

No pictures to post at the moment. But Peanut wanted to say goodbye to nanny.

New Study Confirms ...

what we already knew: Organic pesticides suck!

"Ultimately, the organic products were much less effective than the novel and conventional pesticides at killing the aphids

But wait there's more. Here's the second part of that sentence
and they have a potentially higher environmental impact," Hallett said.

Da' Happy Baby

After "Why No Pics with Little Man" I felt bad that you might get the impression that all he does is cry. When in fact he's the quietest and happiest of the lot. At least when with Mamam. I almost caught a good smile on this pic. Turned out I missed it by a fraction of a second and it was a little blurry. But blurry seems to be ok for blogs and the web so I'm showing it anyways.

Thursday, June 17, 2010

And finally not to be ignored in the post sequence is a BigE pic with his front tooth out. It doesn't seem to be slowing him down eating too much.

Why No Pics of the Little Man?

Well he is the third but also because if I hold him this is the reaction I get

Peanut Likes Tea

Go figure. Then again maybe its a sign I'm putting too much sugar in there!

At this point I will mention that is Mama's tea. So maybe its not just me.

Moose and What?

Imagine my concern when I read Moose and Bear and thought they said Moose and Squirrel

Quote Of The Day 86

BigE's at 5 pitch softball and one of his teammate's family has brought their new little dog. The kind that can travel in a plaid travel kennel that is barely bigger then a purse. Picture 2lbs of hair. BigE took one look at the dog in the kennel and asked:

"Is that a real dog?"

No son it's not!

The Moe Hawk

A few Friday's ago it was crazy hair day at school. BigE decided he wanted that faux hawk that the cousins had. It was time for a hair cut anyways so what the heck said Mama.

The side shot gives a good view. We tried using orange Kool-aid to dye the hair. It looked good with the dye in. But after rinsing with a little water much of the colour ran out.

BigE wore the faux around all weekend. I think he was liking the crazy hair. As long as he get's it out of his system before he get's older!

The Goalie

BigE had his friend over for a play date a while ago. The friend brought his goalie gear for some hockey time. Peanut couldn't resist the helmet.
Look at me!!

BigE Sleeping

I snuck in to check on BigE tonight. He's been so enamored by the inflating camping mattresses he's been sleeping on them inside. Tonight I caught him with Sydney Bear his favorite stuffed animal.

Did Anyone Get the License Plate of that Truck?

An update on Poor Peanut the bruise is starting to fade. Those that read the blog, as opposed to those who didn't, were curious what she looked like. Here's a nice shot of the still happy little girl with a smudge on her cheek.If it was lower it could almost be from a chocolate.

Almost Almost Done

Re Almost Done the second last paper is ready to go. Ready is a declining standard right now. One to go. This is a group one so it will take time. However its got to be done by the 23rd.


Quote Of The Day 85

BigE "Mama, What kind of fox was it that ran all around Canada?"
Mama "Do you mean Terry Fox?"
BigE "Yeah"

Too cute, Too cute!!

Another Small Pic

Poor kid, suffering from the busy schedules and being the third kid you'd almost wouldn't know he existed. Here's a recent snaphot of the graceful sleeper

for Matt here's a second shot on the posting without comments.
