It was homecoming this weekend at our Alma mater (Oklahoma). We took the entire family down to Norman to participate in the festivities. We went to the Homecoming Parade, had a great time with friends and family, and watched some great football! Here are a few pictures of the kids sporting the crimson and cream. BOOMER SOONER!
My #4 (Brian) apparently needs to spend a little more time watching his daddy shave, and a little less time with his mommy.....because every time he is in the shower he hikes his little leg onto the shower wall to "shabe his wegs" with his razor. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Kate has many ambitions in life these days... *Her greatest??----to stand on the dishwasher door... Seriously...she can hear the door open from two rooms away and comes running to climb onto the door......
My next post may be....."The one in which I buy a new dishwasher door"
*Another ambition-----to see how many times she can push the power button on the cable box and make her brothers go crazy
*Thirdly-----she LOVES to see how fast she can unroll the T.P. before I catch her....you have never seen a girl more frantic to get toilet paper off a roll ;)
*and last ----(although not really last---but the last I will report on--You're welcome ;) She can climb out of her crib...If you remember this post....you know she has been a climber her whole life-- She has been able to climb UP the slides at the park for a couple of months now.....I mean seriously steep slides.... Let me tell you the first time I found that out I had to scurry my little buns up the slide too....and it's a lot harder than it looks---but you don't want your 10 month old/1 year old wandering around at the top!!!!!
On to my #2...Nicky....the poor guy inherited my scatterbrain....I can't tell you how many times I have had to take something up to him at school this year.....
This morning he was going crazy because he couldn't find his library book---the library book with the POLAR BEAR on the cover...He swore up and down he had left it on the dining room table.....I saw His papers on the table, and then threw them away....so figuring I threw away the book with them, I went through the trash looking for his book......NO BOOK! We looked all over the house for 20 minutes...he blamed every sibling for losing/stealing his book.....then we found it.....in his bed.....y/k right where he left it last night after reading...:)----and there was no POLAR BEAR..........there was a CAMEL on the cover! LOL
The boys get a folder home every Monday with the lasts weeks papers and newsletters from the PTO and teachers etc..... It's a lot of stuff.....For the last 2 years I have gotten #1s (Alex's) folder home....it was so perfect and neat...separated into sections....all nice and neat......Nick's papers keep coming home all stuffed in the folder....half of the papers sticking out the top and sides and totally crinkled up and just a complete mess.....Finally, I asked him who the helper was that was putting the papers in his folder like that (I assumed because Alex's was so neat, that there were parent helpers or some other adult that came up and put the papers in)----he said "I do it"....Then I asked Alex who does his....he said "I do, and always have".......AHEM.....
