Big Booties and Big Heads

I've been meaning to take a picture of my kid's huge butt. He wears 2 prefolds with an insert and a wool cover. Then his pjs. It's hilarious. I feel like these pictures really don't do the hugeness of it justice.

Cal's been hiding in his dress-up bin with a wig on and you really can not see him. Then Ike tried to join him.

Cousin Rachel and Cousin Anna visit

Even though Anna had a fever all day on Saturday, we went to the Mall of America to ride rides. I really don't know how she did it, since even the merry-go-round makes me sick. She's a trooper. See that digger he's holding? He had been obsessed with it and I lost it that day. I took it from him during a ride so he wouldn't drop it. Now I can't find it. I'm a bad mom, I know.

Anna was very into Isaac. She wanted to hold him, pick him up, help him with anything... It was hilarious. Isaac, as we all know, does not need any help, but would accept it from Cousin Anna.

See those cheeks? Fever.

Thanks for coming, Rach and Anna! We had so much fun and hope you come again!

Easter and Mado's birthday

In honor of Mado's birthday, Laura brought over a bunch of eggs to color. It was messy, insane and hardly worth the work. But the kids had a ton of fun. Of course, I didn't get enough pictures because of the insanity of it all. (Look at Cal's right hand- it stayed that color for days). We had quesadillas for lunch that day.Looking for eggs on Easter morning.


My friend returned this jumperoo and as it sat out for a couple days (against Eric's wishes), the boys played in it. Ike kept climbing in but couldn't get out on his own.
And to prove that yes, he had underwear on....

Overheard as the boys are eating oatmeal:

Cal: When we die, our skin will be buried in the ground and that will be really sad. Right?
Ike: Yeah.
Cal: But when our souls go to heaven, we will be given brand new bodies! And that will be so amazing! Right?
Ike: YEAH!
Cal: So we do not have to worry about dying.

Mr. Krabs

Mr. Krabs from Spongebob Squarepants

For some reason, Calvin is sort of obsessed with spongebob squarepants. He is not allowed to watch it, but constantly reminds me that he wishes he could.

This week, Calvin cut up two pieces of paper into four squares and drew a different picture on each one. Some of them were rain, bees, and a clown at a circus.

Then with no picture of Mr. Krabs nearby, Cal drew this:

Notice that he even included the eyelashes. This is an artist in the making, people.

Found in the Miller's basement with cracker crumbs inside. Anyone? I think it's Discovery Toys.

Terrible Video

This is an awful video- shaky and crazy. But Cal is hilarious in it. It was from the Easter program. I didn't get any good videos at all, so I'm asking around.

New Idea

Ok, what about these two? The one of Ike has to be fixed because it looks a little exposed, but I'm leaving that to Anne (thanks, Anne!). And it's smaller b/c I had to bring it over from shutterfly.

Please Vote

I have a frame with five small fall photos of the boys. I am getting a picture of each of the boys blown up to an 11x14 for the same wall. Here's what I'm using for Ike:

Which one should I use for Cal? Please vote on the poll to your right. Any comments put in the comment section. Thank you! (I like the idea of having Cal horizontal since Ike is vertical, but am not sure if it would look as dope as I think).

More on Dragon

I forgot to include this in the dragon post:

Isaac has multiple personalities now- the dragon and Isaac. When he's wearing his costume and does something wrong (pushing, knocking Cal's building over, general overall naugtiness) and I ask him, "Isaac, did you do this?" his response is, "Dragon do it." The look in his eyes is that he truly believes that the dragon is to blame, not Isaac.

He also refers to himself as "dragon" if his costume is on. "Dragon run." "Dragon do it." "Dragon drink milk." etc. He's out of control, people.
