Look out Revlon...Crayola as lipstick?




So we have discovered that crayons CAN be used as lipstick! Not only can we pull the barstools over to the counters to eat entire sticks of butter but we can also use the computer, make calls, get candy and virtually make a mess on any surface in the house!

Luc has started walking more on his own in between furniture and does well holding onto one hand. We "chase" our sisters around the garden outside and crawl all over the place now instead of crying to the nearest adult. Jill left for Australia last Sunday so we have 5 kids to contend with now...can you say Prozac and Merlot!

We do not like to wear clothes or diaper, for that matter. I can't wait for potty training!!!! We went apple picking Sunday and it was great. The kids loved picking the apples but spent more time eating them! We made apple pie and it went over well, even though I had no cinnamon and had to ground up 5 year old cinnamon sticks to make do! C'est la vie!

Well, Daddy's home. Time for "Mommy to check out", as John calls it, and relax outside for a few minutes until dinner is ready! Cheers!!

Pictures from Birthday Party





Houston...we have lift off! (or Luc walks)

Well, we had a HUGE surprise yesterday when Luc took his first steps. The first time was with Mommy and Lisa, our PT. He took 6 steps to Mommy all by himself. We waited for Daddy to come home and then he spent 20 minutes walking from Daddy to Mommy!!!!!!

We have the proof!
