Back Blogged

Abby is really into brushing her teeth lately. She just keeps going until I take it away from her. She would walk around with all day if I let her. Bow Success! Abby finally let me put bows in her hair, and she left them there. She is quite the girl lately. She is totally into jewlery and purses. She has been snatching peoples purses lately (luckily only of people we know, and only when they set them down.) I know she is pictured with a train here, but she really only likes to snatch trains away from Peter because she knows he will chase her for them.

I think Abby is the only one who has been wearing the hat. I think David just can't quite get behind a school that doesn't care about football. Luckily he has plenty of other blue hats to wear, and some red ones too, no scarlet.

I started making Abby's Halloween costume this week. David looked at me like I was nuts until I said Halloween is only 3 months away. He suddenly got very excited and said,
"then football is only 1 month away!"
I guess we are going to have to get cable again.

So the kids are wearing matching outfits in this picture even though you can't tell. They both wear the same size and it is really easy to make them match. I guess they weren't as excited about it as I was!

People keep asking me if they are twins or "twinnies." Everyone is pretty disappointed and a little judgmental/confused when I say no. I usually say he is small for his age and she is big for her age (she is really just average) and he is 2.5 and she is 17 months and blah, blah, blah... by this time they are looking at me like "wow, too much information" but you can't just say no. I think I am just going to say yes from now on and keep moving. I guess there is always the just put your head down and look angry and no one will try to talk to you option , but that only works in some of the Connecticuts. David and I have decided that there are many Connecticuts. We have been to some parties lately and David is fond of saying, "that wasn't the Connecticut I live in." Well anyway there I go again... Yeah sure they are twins, whatever you want.

Favorite videos

I was looking through old pictures, and decided to post these first giggle moments. These always make me smile.

Good bye friends!

Our dear friends moved this week. They are the kind of friends that always seem to know when you really need them most. The kind of friends that would do anything for you. The kind of friends you would share anything with. The kind of friends you call when you lock yourself out of the house again. The kind of friends that make grocery shopping fun. The kind of friend that you know you will always love you. The kind of friends that make you better. We decided that these friends are more like family than friends. Thank you for so many memories. Good bye and Good luck. We will miss you!

Strawberry Patch

We went strawberry picking a few weeks ago with our friends. It was really fun, and after a quick stop at the farm store we had enough strawberries to make jam.

So much to learn!

I decided to post a new page with old pictures, because a cute baby is a cute baby.

So I have been learning so much about blogging, photo shop, and wireless networks lately. Technology has become quite the commitment. I spent hours configuring our wireless network to add a computer. I just finished organizing my papers, ribbons, brads, and ... into neat digital folders (the cupboards will have to wait). I thought I was done sorting paper and ribbon when I started digital scrapping, but no.

Apparently there are internet safe color codes, who knew?

I thought I would also share my favorite digital scrap sites.

There are a lot more, but I don't want to give out all my hard earned secrets in one day. I feel like there is so much to learn about digital scrapping and blogging. Thank you to those of you who have shared your secrets with me. I am ready for another digital scrap party whenever anyone is ready.

Oh, and I apologize for my annoying music, I thought it would only play if you hit the link, yet another learning experience.

I love Photoshop!

A picture is worth a thousand words, so a scrapbook page has to be worth even more right.

Peter really loves music! He especially loves the iPod. He is quite the music connesoiur, he loves everyone from U2 to Laurie Berkner. Rock on little buddy!
