Pantyliners in Pull-Ups

Yesterday I was helping Ethan take off his Pull-Up and was surprised to discover a pantyliner (inside the Pull-Up). He smiled proudly, "I got one of those too mom!". I quickly scanned the bathroom for tampon wrappers...just in case :-)

Isaac came running in the office this morning, "Mom you gotta see this". It was the commercial for the "Package Shark" . From my boy who loves tape and tools his enthusiasim for such a handy device doesn't surprise me. He'd take a Package Shark over a new toy any day.

Morgan is thrilled with her new balance beam. Her birthday present arrived early and I gave in and let her play with it. I might add that I have landed a cartwheel on the beam. The kids keep asking me to perform my stunt for their friends who are equally shocked and amazed (and maybe a little bit disturbed).

In all the excitement around the new beam, Ethan has taken to wearing Morgan's leotards. He changes into them every chance he gets. Here's a photo of him in his leo "surfing" on a board laid across a wheeled shopping cart. As always, he's most content when danger is involved!

Gymnastics Meet Photos

Here are some photos from Morgan's most recent meet. One of the dad's took pictures with his professional camera with huge zoom lens. He was nice enough to share them, and so I finally have some great photos from the meets. It's hilarious to see Morgan's tounge out in every shot. She sticks it out whenever she's concentrating. She doesn't even realize she is doing it. Morgan had a great meet taking 2nd place in vault and 4th place All Around in her age group. Way to go Morgan!

Arm Farts...oh my!

I dare you to say "arm fart" without giggling or at least cracking a smile. I can't. My 8-year-old niece, Elise, came to visit over Christmas break and taught Morgan how to arm fart. Morgan quickly set to work teaching her brothers her newly learned skill. So, here are my beautiful kids (and husband) in all their arm farting glory (around the dinner table no less). Aren't they adorable? I couldn't be more proud :-)!
