My Little Bibliophile Pony

This toy was confiscated two nights ago.
You know why? I'll give you a hint. Someone was staying up late reading and that star underneath her necklace causes little LED lights to flash on her cape and in her horn when you push it.

I love this girl!

I think that I should get a prize for being the worst blogger. I guess my only excuse is that I am kind of overwhelmed with having 3 little kids. Rest assured though we haven't stopped taking pictures and I do write in my journal once in a while, so all is not lost to memory alone. The kids are all doing well. Gio is loving kindergarten and now plays soccer. He came home from school yesterday telling me that "there is a beading class at school that I joined". After quite a bit of interrogation I am still not quite clear about what he is talking about so I am going to ask his teacher (only because the story included paying some older kids money which he got from Fernando...hmmm). Zeke and I are having fun together during the day while Gio is away. He is still an attentive and adoring big brother to Lili except that he sometimes treats her like she is his age (ie. tries to have pillow fights with her etc.). He assures me that she likes it as long as she is not crying. Often she freaks out when he just gets too close. Lilikoi's favorite activity is being raced around in the cozy coupe car by the brothers. They run as fast as they can and she moves the steering wheel back and forth and squeals and laughs the whole time. I really need to get it on video. She is a good driver although she did fall asleep at the wheel yesterday. We miss everyone and I after this summer I have a renewed desire to live near/with family all the time. Family is the best.

swinging in the mountains

we went for a hike this week and found this swing someone set up. we were hoping we might see some fall colors but it was still green, which is good too. we do love summer.


The other day Mimi and I were playing scrabble. When I was setting up the board Mimi said, "You know I beat Andy the other day?" It was a bit intimidating but I took the challenge. In the middle of the game I saw it.....the mother of all mother moves.....I used all seven tiles giving me entrance into the family hall of fame including Danny and Katie and I am sure many others in the family. I actually scored 75 points in that one move. Mimi was happy for me and was a gracious loser that day but I am sure my luck will change soon. It is a pleasure beyond measure to play games with our Mimi!

Charlie's Show

Yes, Charlie has fans. He was confident and didn't mess up one time. People at his show knew the words to his music and they gave him really good feedback. Good job Char!If you want to listen to some samples of some of the music from his last CD, I found his music here. He has a lot more songs now , but I don't know how to put his new songs on here.
