All of my boys needed hair cuts and I had neither the time nor the energy to fight with the younger two on sitting still. So I bribed them. Awesome parenting, huh? If they sat still during the WHOLE haircut they were promised a toy from the dollar store. Seriously, that was the best $2 I've ever spent in my life. They were amazing, haircuts were done in no time (and with no tears) and we flew T's special kite all afternoon!

Talmage taught Evie that it's funny to run away from me when I get out the camera. Everett thought he was the funniest person on earth. He'd run and laugh and trip, all the while saying, "siwy, siwy" (silly, silly for you non-baby talkers). He is so darn cute!

We have a big bin full of dress-up clothes and love to let our imaginations go wild. The boys LOVE hats...love, love, love hats and so we dress up more often than you'd think. I'm trying to enjoy it now because I fear in just a few (ok, 10) years that my two teenage boys won't want to play dress-up with their momma!
Funny business from the clowns.
Construction Elmo. He loves to wear that hard hat and especially loves for the light to be ON (much to the chagrin of the batteries!)
Home Depot worker/clown/Santa ;)
Playing "obstruction worker".
Daddy brought the boys pilot hats from Washington DC and they have been playing airplane even more ever since.

James has been traveling a lot lately for work/school, so we've been playing A LOT of airport around our house. And with the airport and planes we got from Auntie Care at Christmas, we've been all set! During our most recent trip to drop James off, Talmage was enamored by the trains that circled SFO, so he decided to recreate what he saw. I must admit, I was impressed by his creativity--and how fun does that look? We also set up a dinosaur park and a zoo in our little airport town. I surprise myself with how much I love trains and trucks and cars and dinosaurs! I have really grown into being a mom of boys.
Evie the Zookeeper. That boy loves animals!
Talmage the conductor/pilot/creative director/boss-everyone-arounder!

Another day, another photo op with boys dressed alike (thanks to T-Man's love of matching). Do $1 Jamba Juice's taste better than regular-priced Jamba's to anyone else? Because they definitely do to me. I love Jamba deals, and so do Buzz and Woody.
Really, really, really love these boys.

ALL Valentinesyish things from Valentine's Day week:
My little Picasso's hard at work.
Dance prizes were enough to get T moving. Barely moving, but it was a step in the right direction. It was a great dance! Loved it!
Happy Valenstine's Day (that's what T calls it!)
