His wife will thank us someday! Anyone who wanted to hang out in the kitchen HAD to be working so Ethan put some of his toddler exuberance into 'smashing' the spuds and boy were they SMASHED!
How do you know when a child's consumed lethal levels of chocolate?? I'm voting that when they try to 'catch' themselves in a butterfly net and feel the need to whack the catch in the head with a mallet might be an indication...hmmm do you think? His mother, the one with two TWO sons assured us that this was really just 'normal' boy behavior and would just as likely occurred without the influence of sugar :) Thank you God for my two GIRLS!
A phone call at 8:30pm from my boss was not a good sign for the rest of my vacation! Seems the dentist scheduled for tomorrow called in sick and they're desperate. Here's hoping it's the only time I have to go in when I'm supposed to be 'on holidays' as Patrick calls vacation. Just for your viewing pleasure I'm closing with a few pictures from Easters present and past. Enjoy!
Only just last year! They've both grown up soooooo much since then. We missed you St. Martha's in Sarasota!!!!!
Julia HATED that haircut!
Yep, I'm one of those matching Moms! Caved a little this year by letting them choose their own skirts. Oh St. Martha's we REALLY, REALLY missed you this year!
Mari's first Easter with us was only three weeks after coming home! To think she spoke not a word of English when this photo was taken yet she clearly is happy to be posing with the cousins. This was also the last time we spent Semana Santa in Illinois. Did I mention how much I missed being in Sarasota???
