Snuggle Bug

Emma is a snuggle bug these days. If she's sad she NEEDS her puppy. We're trying to wean her off of it in time for her fourth bithday; but that's proving to be a challenge, especially when she's just so adorable all snuggled up!

H & C Upholstery

When Corina was here we started our first upholstery project and the found piece of H & C Upholstery! Ok, not an official business, but it may or may not be the beginning of more projects!


We didn't take enough pictures to remember how we put it together, but we got it eventually.
This was killer on our "old" knees!

All the staples we pried out!
Dun du da da!

Three little kiddos

It took multiple attempts to get a good picture. Here are a few along the way...

Love them all!


So the other day I was saying goodnight to Katie in Shakespearean (give or take a phrase or two) English with English accent. Katie got into character right away and our conversation when something like this:

Me: "good night dear lady, I do hope you supped well with your dindins"
Katie with slight hesitation: "Thank you"

after more conversation

Me: "Fare thee well, sweet lady. Parting is such sweet sorrow."
With fluttery eyes and silky voice Katie replies: "I don't know what that means"

Katie: "Daddy, I want to go to your funeral someday."  She meant, I want to see a funeral at the cemetery someday.

Emma:  "Katie's calling me EmmaSothrea!"   She meant, Emma Sophia.

Me: "Emma, why are you being greedy?"
Emma: "Because I'm a pirate!"

Emma singing(peace like a river): "I got peas in da river, I got peas in da river"
Katie: "Emma, stop being so peasy!"

Katie wanted to shower after swimming lessons to wash of the submarine... she meant chlorine

June & July in Pictures

What you don't see is the laundry from both baskets all over the living room!

She was cold...

This is what Alex does when you tell him to wrinkle his nose!
