Pretty Ronni

I had the kids ready for church and was in the kitchen packing the bags. Ronni was walking around behind me in the walker when Collin walked in. He looked at Ronni and said very enthusiastically, "Woooooww! Ronni, you look pwetty!!!" Then he leaned over and gave her a big hug. I just thought it was a great sibling moment. I made them pose together so I could remember the moment. hehe!

Foot Massage

He found the foot massager under our bed, took it to his room, removed the outlet cover and plugged it in. It started vibrating and he thought he broke something so he ran to find us. We saw what he was doing and moved it into the living room so we could watch him then added water. He LOVED it! He sat here for a while. It was really funny (especially when you consider the fact that he rarely sits still).

Wha... huh!!???

That's right folks! We got a moped... a Magnum 50L Scooter. haha! I know, I'm still having trouble believing it myself. To those of you who don't know my husband -- he is totally anti all two wheeled vehicles. I am sure you can imagine my surprise when he called me from work the other night saying a co-worker was selling this for an great price, "Can I get it?" I nearly fell over from shock. I said, "ok" then a couple of hours later he called again. "It should be in the carport now. They brought it over." So... here it is! Our gas saver for around town. It gets 120 mi/gallon. I'm going to start driving it to work, too. I'm still in shock that we have it. =)

Learning to walk

Just got it! Boy... look at that smile!
Hmmm.... should I stay with the walker or go to mommy? stay with walker or go to mommy? walker!
So excited! Look at that face. =)
I wish I had gotten that giggle from the front. From the side you can still see how happy she is. hehe

Today we got Collin's old walker for Ronni. Oh my heck! She loves it! haha! I'm sure you can tell that from the pics. This is about the age Collin was when he started playing with it. Hope you enjoy! =)


Paul heard Collin fussing and went in there and found this. His hand is up b/c he was waving at dad. =)

Rockets and Space

We have a little boy who has decided he wants to be an astronaut and 'go to outerspace right now'. We were in Hobby Lobby today and Paul saw a rocket that he just couldn't refuse. I have to admit that it is pretty cool. Instead of an engine and having to light it you just stomp the end and it uses air. Perfect for a two year old who is obsessed with planes, rockets and outerspace. We want to find a book that would be good for him so if anyone knows of one please let us know. Remember, too, that this is the two year old who will explain to you that planets travel around and around the sun because of the sun's gravity and that the shapes in the stars are called constellations. He and I can sit there with a picture of the solar system and talk about it for at least 30 minutes before he gets bored with it and even then it's normally b/c I'm ready to do something else. hehe! Any suggestions on good books?

Double the mess; double the fun!

So... they were playing in the bedroom for about 45 minutes. I would poke my head in there occasionally and cringe b/c of the mess they were making but it was kind of nice having them entertain each other. I love having two... =D

Where'd he go?

I was washing dishes and Ronni was on the floor playing with a ball. I noticed it was really quiet in the living room where Collin was supposed to be watching Calliou. I walked in there and he was missing. I walked down the hall and heard snoring (sort of -- it was fake) coming from the master bedroom. I opened the door and the above picture is what I found. I took the picture, laughed, and then got the picture below.

I have been informed that I needed to get some more pics up here so... that's what I'm doing. hehe. We have a wall with all the family pictures on it and we don't have one of "Ronni" yet. (Collin can't pronounce her name so he calls her Ronni and Paul and I have been calling her that too. haha! She now responds to Ronni.) Anyways... I have been trying to get her to pose for pics so I can put one on the wall. I have been having a hard time b/c when the flash goes off it puts a huge shadow on her head but I think I finally got one. I had to turn the flash off and it was really hard b/c the slightest movement turned the picture fuzzy but I got one!!

It's the first one. The second one I turned the flash back on b/c I knew there was no way I could get Collin and Ronni still at the same moment. haha!
