Playing with Video

John has been playing with video applications recently, as he has been asked to make one for work in the upcoming months.  He made this video of the kids for practice.  Enjoy!

My Little Ponies

Let's talk My Little Ponies.  Lydia loves them, a lot.  It is her number one toy right now.  Puzzles are out, ponies are in.  Before bed, she puts all her ponies to sleep in the castle, a process that can take up to 45 minutes.  That's how much care she puts into finding each pony a perfect sleeping spot.  Megan

Vegas Girls Day

Wild day!  I flew to Vegas yesterday to spend the day exploring the strip with my college roomie, Jessica.  John did a fabulous job taking care of the kids.  I didn't worry once and was free to have a day of fun with a true friend.  It was just what I needed.  Megan

The Lap Battle

I love it when the kids plop down in my lap.  I love the plop.  A race for who can get to my lap first when I sit down often occurs.  Being faster, Lydia wins most of the time.  Jack has decided his consolation prize can be a seat in Lydia's lap.  Megan

Happy Valentine's Day

My adorable valentines.  John had duty today so we celebrated by bringing him take-out Chinese and under-baked brownies (oops).  Megan

Injuries and Afflictions

This is a record of this week's injuries and afflictions.  

Lydia-bee sting on school playground (no allergy), badly skinned knees from running too fast while playing Tarzan

Jack-third week of runny nose and congested cough, hit mouth while climbing cement steps resulting in sliced gums above his top teeth and lots of blood (emergency dental appointment showed no injury to teeth)

I'm beginning to accept that my kids will always be somewhat sick or injured.  Megan

Outings with Two

My outings with the kids on Tuesdays and Thursdays have taken on more pleasure now that both kids can participate.  Today, we visited the Botanic Garden.  After this photo was taken, Jack plopped down in the water and enjoyed the sun, bubbles and toys for close to a hour.  Lydia walked up and down the stream racing toy boats.  It was the best hour of my day.  Megan
