Boys In June

In my opinion, my little munchkins have grown quite a bit in just the past few months, so here are some pics of them from June.  Ashton has since had a few haircuts and cut 2 more teeth, and Aiden is a big talker as well as a big listener.  I can't believe he's almost 3 & a half!  So here they are doing what they do best: causing messes & general pandemonium around our house, keeping me mopping, punishing, laughing and shaking me head in amazement.  (I also sneak in as many hugs and kisses as I can!)

"Mom.  Mom!  Mom!!!  We ate awl da pwetzels fwom da bag.  Da bag fwom yur purse, Mom!"

If I could add the noise of wooden blocks crashing onto wood floors, I would.  Just so you could get the full effect.  (And that shirt was Andy's as a kid - adorable!)

"Mom!  Check out how high my SR71 can fwy!  Look Mom, Look!!!"

"Aiden, can you give me a sweet face?"

"So what are you up to, Aiden?  You look like you're up to no good."

"Ah, yes, I should have known.  Turning on Daddy's XBox ... just for the fun of it ..."

"And possibly to be able to give this smug look!"

The Black Veil Has Been Lifted

After 3 weeks of walking around in a funk, avoiding tackling any great tasks, even blogging, I am jumping up and down, screaming out of glee and relief, making a sleepy Ashton cry his eyes out in confusion because after misplacing it, I finally found

the camera!  The little red camera.  The little red camera that we have only had for 6 months.  The little red camera from my in-laws!  The little red camera that held all the photos from my parents' visit & mine-n-Andy's 36 hour romantic getaway to NYC.  To make a long story short, I mysteriously misplaced the camera just 2 days after we came back from The City and I had checked everywhere: the grocery store, the 4Runner & all my bags.  Out of desperation today when I discovered I had not downloaded our NYC pics to the computer, I tore open the couches.
Voila!  The little red camera lay next to some cheerios, M&M's and half of a dismembered dog toy.  Praise the Lord!  I was so depressed that I had lost the medium to communicate our lives with family and friends so far away.  So to all, I am back!  And to the friends who are close, yes, I'm now up to getting together for a bbq or playdate!  I can confidently say: "Keep posted.  I'll be be posting!"
