Shopping with Tasha

Well, I guess the kids would be a lot happier if Tasha was in charge of the grocery list. While playing today, she got her purse and told me she and Snowy were going shopping for food. She informed me that they were buying chocolate pudding and NO FRUIT MAMA!

All Boy!

Sure Kevin plays with Tasha’s baby from time to time. And yes, she tries to dress him in her clothes. But, when it comes right down to it, he’s ALL boy! Balls and toy cars are the things for him and don’t try to take them away without a big fight! Here’s Kevin doing what he does best….being a boy!

Mmmmm, it tastes better when you stick your whole head in the bowl of yogurt. Try it sometime!

Balls are chairs too, did ya know?

Merry Christmas! Wait a minute….it’s May…what the!?

Ammon loves eggnog SOOOOO much that he was delighted to find that Borden makes Eggnog in a can. Yes, in a can, folks! Isn’t that just the cats meow. I bet you’re going to run out there and buy some since it sounds so appealing! 😉 Anyways, Tasha loves Eggnog almost as much as Ammon. I bet you can’t tell from the pictures!

Oh, and apparently Eggnog grows on trees too. We were hiking today and had stopped to take a rest under a tree when tasking spotted some yellow moss on the tree. “Look, Eggnog!”, she exclaimed. Mmmmmmmm

Kevin’s Game!

Ammon likes to play this one computer game after work to relax and it looks like we’ve got a gamer in training. It’s nothing to laugh at either, no smiles during these games….it’s serious business….see?

Can’t tear himself away to smile!

Sleeping Beauty

Every now and then, I get lucky and Tasha will take a nap with me while Kevin naps. It doesn’t happen alot, but when it does, it’s heaven. Here’s Tasha snoozing the day away!

Growing up a little….too fast!

Tasha found a face mask in our hall closet today. The kind that you’d get from the doctor’s office to cover your mouth when you’re sick. This particular one had disney characters on it and was just her size…well, she came in to see me when I was doing something in her room and she’d put the straps that you are supposed to put around your ears, over her arms and was wearing it under her shirt. She was wearing a pajama shirt that was low enough that you could see the mask poking out of the top.  “Bra, Mommy” she said……Trying hard not to wet myself laughing, I carefully told her that it was not a bra and that it was supposed to go on her face. Then I thought, oh boy if this is what she’s like now……;)

ABC, 1,2,3….

After having played on the jungle gym and the swings for quite a while yesterday, Mommy decided it was time to go home. I informed Kevin, who was still swinging, that I’d count to three and then I’d get him out and we’d leave. I said, “One..” and before I could finish my counting, I heard a little voice say ” Two, tree”. And it was Kevin!!!! He even tried to hold up the right number of fingers. Who knew he could count to three? Not me!

She said it!

This afternoon Tasha went to get dressed (again, for the fourth time today), and when I went upstairs to check on her, I found her with a t-shirt that hangs in her closet….on a rack about 4 feet above her head……I asked her how she got the shirt. Her response was “Mom, I’m a big girl”! Well, okay then! =)

The latest addition to the family

No, we’re not pregnant and we didn’t adopt a pet….well, not in a conventional way anyways. Kevin is our dog! Unlike Tasha who didn’t really play pretend very much until recently, Kevin has already started crawling around woofing and snuggling up against your leg like a dog! I discovered this one Saturday when I heard Tasha saying “Good doggy” and found that Kevin had walked over to Tasha, then gotten on his hands and knees at her feet and proceeded to woof while she petted his head! Too much! =)
