Scott loves having a tree on his head. Also known as a ponytail.
I organized a neighborhood sewing class and the boys played matching while we waited for everyone to show up.
We tuck the boys in bed before we go to sleep and Jonah is always in a precarious position.
John found out his company was likely to close the next week, so I made all the doctor appointments I could while we still had insurance and FSA funds to spend. First up was Scott's dental check-up and cleaning.
I took him to a pediatric dentist and he was nervous, but excited to get his teeth white. The hygienist was awesome and Scott did a great job.
I went to the gym and for the second week in a row the spin instructor didn't show up. I went to the other location and had a half hour to kill, so I bought the boys a donut to share from Safeway. The childcare person at the second place wasn't there (which they didn't tell me when I had checked in a half hour before and gotten childcare tokens), so it was a total bust of a morning. My back was killing me for days, but at least the boys remembered getting a donut instead of missing out on play time. I put my membership on hold until after the baby comes and started going back to the community center. I love that place so much more, but the convenience of childcare, showers and distance from the house makes the gym a better choice.
John came home from work with his personal belongings, AOptix swag, and snacks they were throwing out from the break room. We're going to miss a lot of things about his job, but are excited about future options. He was contacted by a recruiter Tuesday, interviewed Wednesday, and started Thursday at a 6 week contract job. It's in Newark, which is a huge adjustment for our family. Since his company couldn't offer cobra or severance or anything, it's nice to have work while he job searches, though. We really need something full time because insurance for our family through the state is insane.
Jonah lined up his friends during his nap. And stole Scott's pillow.
We went to Krispy Kreme for a free glazed donut.
Scott wanted a sprinkled one, but the lady said we couldn't pay the difference. Instead of having a fit, he asked if he could have one next time. We went outside to eat and found two mini sprinkled donuts in our box along with the four glazed. She made two boys very happy.
We met our friends at the park before dinner one day. The frisbee went over the fence and Lou crawled under and rescued it.
Playing in another friend's backyard. The rain made a lovely mud puddle to play in.
Since John has a long commute and it's been raining, it was time to replace his bald tire. We were trying to decide what to do for fun with the boys that day and ran errands first.
They thought it was Luigi's tire shop and loved it.
We saw a fire truck on the corner, the light rail went by, they played at the mall play place while we waited and we grocery shopped and got them a hot dog at Costco. It was probably a better outing for them than anything we could have planned.
Scott made stairs and I helped him put supports in place up to his Empire State Building. Then he said he needed an elevator so the people don't get tired on all the stairs.
Tucking their babies in to bed. Then Scott turned and said, "Alright, Jonah, let's go on our date!"
They abandoned their children and had a nice date to go buy a hockey stick because theirs broke. I love that Scott is verbalizing his imagination now.
We asked what song they wanted to sing for FHE and Scott chose "Christmas Tree church song"-- the opening song from the Christmas Devotional. Jonah was excited and danced, then they sat and watched attentively and wanted to keep watching the whole thing. Weird kids.
Sitting on the boat outside the grocery store. I don't even think this runs anymore, it just sits there.
I agreed to babysit one week thinking John would be home to help. He was already working, so I brought the kids to and from preschool in the wagon.
Gracie put the boys down for pretend naps. They loved it.
Jonah not so gently burping his baby.
We're going to need to work on their technique before the real baby comes.
We had a girl's night for my mom's birthday.
Amanda brought this great cake from a Santana Row bakery and it was as good as it looks.
Helping clean the church building.
At his first primary activity. He was excited to use colored pencils and started coloring with both hands at once.
The dress-up station. He didn't want to do it, so we were going to skip it until he saw this costume and wanted to put it on. So he could be a Jedi.
I blame John for that one.
