Driving home from Pre-School today, we spot a Big Brown UPS truck...

Jonah (3): LOOK! It's the U.P. Truck!

Noah (3): No, Jonah...that's the P.U. Truck.

Grammy Fingers

After getting the Jonah and Noah out of the Tubby:

Jonah (3), showing me his water wrinkled hands,: These are my Grammy Fingers.

'My Very Best Friend'

Caleb had been coming home from school telling us all about his friend, Maci, and how she was his very best friend. He has just been enamored with her... I called her mom and we have since had 2 playdates. Maci came over here one morning when the Little Boys were at school, so just she and Caleb could play, then a couple weeks later all the boys and I went over to her house. She is the oldest in her family, and has several siblings, so it was a fun time! I simply could not resist getting a picture of the two of them eating popcorn and watching a movie!

There are 2 'Calebs' in their class, so they often call him 'Caleb J.' Caleb has said many times that he wants Maci to be 'Maci J.' I don't think he is thinking in a 'marriage' sense, as much as he just thinks it would be great if she were in our family, so they could always be together.... it's really sweet.

Etta Girl

Every Tuesday and Thursday, I have the joy of watching Etta Girl while Emily teaches a band class at a local private school. I ALWAYS look forward to having her, as do the boys! When I pick them up from school, they always ask "Are our girls at home?" They all have so much fun! And don't let Etta's petite size fool you. She is a pint size fire cracker who can manage her own with these big boys!

Playing trains.
Sharing the sofa! (a most coveted snuggle spot.)
When I first started watching Etta, I went to the store and picked up a few "girly things"... This is Etta feeding her baby.
This picture probably describes Etta's personality better than any of the above... she has on her fairy skirt, and the fireman's hat. It just typifies her. I LOVE it!
