Tidiness is in his genes (thank goodness).

Post-seasonal projects

Who isn't inspired to construct a gingerbread house on a rainy day in March while listening to Depeche Mode?!?!

Kelan's Dinosaur Train themed party at Rolly Pollies was a success! Lots of bouncing, running, climbing and tumbling by toddlers everywhere -- the energy expenditure that afternoon was off the charts. SO fun, however...

the documentation of the party (by me) wasn't so much. If the picture wasn't blurry then all I captured was an eye or an ear or partial limb of a child. So embarrassing. I need lessons...

I think I asked him to say "cheese" and this is what I got. He looks like he's going to throw-up?!

Reduce, Reuse...

Recycle! We are trying to teach Kelan and Riley the environmental benefits of recycling at an early age. Thus far, they are great at turning materials that would otherwise become waste into valuable resources; i.e. a morning of FUN swimming in a sea of plastic bags.

Spa treatment

Recently, Kelan studiously watched me put on a masque. Once finished he said, "Momma, I want mud too," so I let him try it. He did a pretty decent job too although I helped just a wee bit...

Here Kelan is showing Otis his application technique.

White Christmas

Lost a mitten and had to improvise with a Zutano bootie. Resourceful, no?

Snow on Christmas in Charlotte in 60 years - it's a big deal. Kelan made a 6 inch Frosty the Snowman -- he was so very sad when he melted later that day (another big deal...).
