Week 43 – October 22 – 28, 2012
(Completed on 12-17-12)
Biking in PJs. When you are ready to go and the timing is just right, just get on your bike and GO!
And since you are outside you better do the chicken chores.
Helen captured this big squeeze and kiss. Nola Mae has gotten use to Henry’s loving, most of the time he gives her sweet little kisses on her head as he is walking by (even harder to get those kissing on the camera).
Charlie’s Jedi robe in progress.
Nola Mae’s new mobility has gotten her “stuck” in a few places. If I am remembering this is the week where I “lost” her in the house for the first time. I went to the bathroom and when I came out she wasn’t anywhere close to where she was when I went in. That was a little scary, I thought maybe Henry took her somewhere, but realized that she is indeed getting around the house by herself at record speeds for an almost seven month old!
Piano lessons from Robbie.
Nola Mae’s last nap in this rocking chair.
I took this cute photo of her in her ruffle diaper. I think Henry thought I was taking a picture of her chewing on this toy ring,
because he found his own ring to play with.
Robbie’s new kind of airplane.
Henry helps me make bread crumbs. When all of the boys turned three years old the “I hate crust” switch turned on. Charlie takes a sandwich every day to school. I cut the crust off, because if you let a kid take it off half the sandwich is wasted. I feed the curst to the chickens or save it and then dry them out for bread crumbs.
Jack came home on the 22nd and went right to work on the kayak.
We have a “nest” in our room and lately all three boys have been sleeping in our room. This night I nursed Nola Mae to sleep and Robbie was still awake. I was able to put her next to him while I took a shower. When I was done with my shower they were all sleeping.
A birthday gift for one of Robbie’s friends. I think I have made a pillowcase for all of his friends. Now what do I make for gifts next year? What homemade thing will 10-year-old boys like?
The boys had a day off from school. I took them to the ski hill to see the new trail and to pick up sticks and rocks.
Robbie wanted a hood on his Jedi robe. I didn’t have time to put one on Henry’s. Charlie didn’t want to be a Jedi, instead he was a wizard with the mask Grandma Helen made last Christmas for the “mask” gift exchange.
