Life is Grand!

(from our B-Day, Aug '08)

I don't want to forget:

Around the age of 2 1/2 or three, "I do it myself!" begins... it's not so great when you are in a hurry :( but it's a good reminder to remember that we don't have to be in such a hurry

Alex likes the word "ow!" He will bump into something on purpose and say, "ow". Otherwise he will hit you and make you say, "ow" and then smile :D (silly goose!)

My dad took care of the boys the other night. The boys both had brooms, that, as he explained, were swinging all over the place. I asked him why he didn't just take them away? "They would have cried." was his answer with a "duh" expression :D "Grandpa!"

The boys love playing in the curtains! The giggles I hear... :) It's one of those moments that can slip by, if I don't cherish it while it lasts.

I just have to mention doctor, medicine, or milk and Thomas will want nothing to do with it :)

Alex loves to take everything out, put back in, slip into, ect.
Alex would love to be Thomas' shadow :) if he can keep up, sometimes he is :D
These are just a few things, but I am hoping to keep this up to help me remember the little things that make life grand!

By Small and Simple things right...I need to be more like you and appreciate the little things and not fret so much over everything else...

That's cute. You seem to be so postitive about the things I get so upset about. Good for you. Thanks for sharing.

Those small and simple things really do make life more memorable. Your dad is so funny. Aren't grandparents wonderful.

Hey Adriana! So glad you found our blog! I'm so excited to stay in touch better! Your little family is so adorable. Your boys are such cuties. Aren't they the best!? I'm so glad to see you guys are doing so well. As far as pictures go I would LOVE to take your family pictures! I'm actually going to be in AZ the week of October 11th so if you really are interested let me know and maybe we could find a time! I'm just a beginner but I'd love the practice and I'm sure we could come up with something that would work for a Christmas card. Plus, you can't be free. :)

Go to the link above. It is called the every child program. I filled out the form (click on the pdf form on the bottom of the page) and emailed it. It was really easy.
I just explained that I wanted to take my kids but that I couldn't afford to spend 30 +/- bucks to go b/c my husband is struggling in his business (hello, real estate is terrible right now)...anyway, you could say your husband is a student and you guys have a tight budget. It is totally legit. They hand out passes every year to whoever asks. GOOD LUCK :)
