Domo Arigato Aunt Annie

Here is a picture of Claire wearing her cute little cherry blossom kimono courtesy of her Okinawa cousins. Thanks Annie, Andy, Ethan and Lainey!! I did her hair in a top knot to try and complete the "sumo wrestler" effect, but I think the fair skin and blue eyes gives her away.

Toaster?...What's a toaster??

Okay, so yesterday morning I made an eggo waffle for Spencer in the toaster like I do most mornings. He is very familiar with this routine and has watched them go in and pop out of the toaster many times. Well, he didn't come to breakfast right away and by the time he got there his waffle had cooled off, so being a nice mom I put it in the microwave for a few seconds to warm it up. Thinking that I had cooked his waffle in the microwave, he became upset and in his "my life is ruined" voice he said, "No Mom! You put mine waffle in the...(big pause here while he tries to think of the word "toaster", and then)...in the waffle cave!" Classic!! I just love being a mom...tell me where else would I have this much fun? Have a great day! Love, Nancy

Jammies & Camo

Is there anything cuter than fuzzy one piece jammies? Spencer and Claire are just such snuggle bugs that I had to share this picture of their happy faces...bed head and all!Matt took Nicole and Corinne with him elk hunting this year. Due to the girls' very busy schedules he had to take them on separate trips. This is a pic I snapped right before Corinne and Matt left. How cute is she in camo?! Enjoy it now though because it may be the last time we ever see her in it. As she said to me this morning when I asked her if she was going grouse hunting with Matt today, "Well Mom, hunting isn't really my thing." Hallelujah...she is my girl after all!

Look out world...here comes Paige!

Well finally I am posting a picture of Paige on her first day of kindergarten. I would have and should have had this up sooner, since Paige actually went to her 7th day of kindergarten today, but Matt stole my camera and went hunting before I downloaded my pictures. Despite the setback, I am here to tell you now that Paige LOVES kindergarten. She said to me on the morning of, "Why do you have to go with me? I can go by myself!" And even though I insisted, since it is my right as a mother to go through that teary ritual, in the end she truly didn't need me at all because when it came time to say goodbye to her, I couldn't get through Nicole and Corinne who were hugging her, showing her where her backpack goes, introducing her to her teacher and being great little mothers (wanted or not). So I made my way home, knowing that she is in good(?) hands as she enters that big world. The only question for me now: Is the world really ready for her?!

And of course what would a post be without an update on my little Claire? Here are some pictures of her being a big girl in her "Bumbo" and catching a nap in her swing. Still so fun!
