Peppercorn Sauce...

At around 18 months Ethan fell in love with golf. Today at age 7, he still loves golf although we have added a few new loves like fishing and soccer. So knowing Ethan's strong passion about things I figured his little brother would not be much different, I was right! Jack at around the same young age fell in love with Bunnies of all things. His fascination with them continued, so at long last I caved and helped his wish to come true! We added baby Peppercorn Sauce to our family this last Monday. I have to say I was not all that excited about the prospect of owning a bunny. You can see by the pictures that you can't not get excited about a little creature that cute! So count mom in the line to hold little Peppercorn. Who knew a bunny could be so fun? She has a sweet, docile temperament and loves to be snuggled and held. My purpose in agreeing to the deal was to nurture a little quiet and gentleness in the boys and so far it seems to be working. "Bunnies like it quiet and so do I!" Ahhhh... I love the baby bunny and the quietness she brings!

Has Spring Sprung?

We hope so! Jack and I were so excited to find daffodils actually in bloom on the way to the bus stop this morning. To feel the sun this afternoon was such a great feeling. And... beware of pesky leprechauns!

Science Fair Super Star!

Isabelle knocked my socks off yesterday at the school science fair! I am so proud. She clearly signed a simplified explanation of photosynthesis and the reason we need energy from the sun to eat! She was so proud of her display and her peers were genuinely interested it what she had to say. I have to say I am a bit proud of myself as well for pulling it off, a science fair project seemed like an unjust nightmare for me! Yeah, together we did it, with a little help from Auntie and EE! Good job Bellie!

This is why...

I'm so tired. This is exactly what I have to contend with at 10:47 at night. Jack being Jack with his insomniac tendency does not need as much sleep as most children. Last night I had HAD IT! I locked myself in the bathroom to take a bath and watch CSI. Only to return to MY room to this... What gives?

Sassy for Spring...

We were hard pressed to find a haircut sassy enough to match Isabelle's sassy personality! I think we may have done it. I don't know if this is the little attitude that goes with nine year old girls but she certainly is pushing all my limits! Picture one will show you can sign with attitude too!
