Arwenism: This is an artsy picture Arwen has drawn of Joshua. She cracks us up! Arwen's ballet teacher had to miss a class, so Arwen had to take a make-up class. We got to ballet and I told Arwen to have fun in her make-up class, and of course she did. We got home and she was talking to Aaron and then she came over to me was kind of confused and said, "Mom, when do I get to do my make-up class?" She thought she was going to learn to put make-up on.
Aaron installed a pull-up bar in our bedroom and the kids love doing pull-ups with him. Then I told Arwen we needed to go to Costco to get some pull-ups for Noah at night time. (Pull-ups are night time big kid diapers) Arwen was so confused. She didn't understand why we needed more "pull-ups."
Noahisms: I got the kids some of those things that you put in water and they grow 600 percent. Noah had a monkey. He convinced Aaron to take his out of the water and let him hold it. It looked so gross. It was so slimey and wet at first. After it dried out, it was pretty cute to see Noah carry this funny little monkey everywhere he went. Then Arwen tore the legs off (don't worry...it was just payback since he tore the head off her dog), but Noah still loved it. I haven't seen it in a while...poor little monkey! Noah comes up with these funny words sometimes. He likes to tell us about his scary dreams full of scary animals. Well, once he was telling us about the scary floooor hooooles. You'll have to call and hear him say it. It is hysterical. It sounds so funny and he has to really concentrate so hard to say it the way he wants it to sound. Another of his funny words is "hone-ty." Apparently it's the name for the holes in the pretend pieces of wood that go to the kids work bench toy.
More Arwenisms: You'll have to take a look at this picture full screen to truly appreciate what Arwen has done to herself. Noah gave her a pair of "clippers" as they call them and together, they cut Arwen's hair. Of course it is right in the front center. When I caught them, she said, "Don't mind of it mom, I don't." Then she heard me tell a few people the story and she didn't like that. She yelled at me, "I do mind of it now, mom!" She looks pretty silly. The only time it's not horribly noticeable is when her hair is down and snarly. Way to go Ar!
We went to the coast on President's day to fly this really cool new kite we got. It rained pretty hard the whole time though, so we couldn't fly it. We did have a fun time enjoying the view and eating our ice cream cones and taffy. Aaron talked me into buying the kids rain boots. They look cute in them...the only problem is that Noah can't walk to well in them and they always fall off.

Arwin is such a little artist. Noah's monkey story really protrayes his cute personality well. Great post Sarah.

Silly little kids! At least you caught Princess before she made it any worse. I spent years trying to grow out my sideburns that I cut off. I had to have these funky curls on the side of my head to try and hide it. We love rainboots!
