Sorry for neglecting my blog! I've been busy over at my other blog, because of Book Blogger Appreciation Week. But, that's over now. So it's time for a bit of catch up. And pictures.
First off, there's a picture of Ryker blowing out his candles, because I just realized that I never put that up. (Pttthhhhbbbt!)And then a little bit of mommy-bragging: Anicka is desperately trying to learn how to read and write. She has started asking me how to spell things, so that she can write 'stories'. This picture is actually sideways, but I'm too lazy to put it into photoshop and flip it, so, you know, just tilt your head to the right. I'm not sure if anyone but me can make out the letters, but it says "Hmert(heart), rimg(ring), married". How cute is that? I'm not sure what's up with all of the 'm's, but we'll work on that.
The kids are obsessed with blanket forts. They make one nearly every day. And it almost always results in one or both of them collapsing in a fit of hysterics because 'Ryker is messing it uuuup!'
Speaking of Ryker, THIS is why I have to bathe him after every meal:
And THIS is why we had to spend the weekend shampooing our carpets:
On my way to bed a few nights ago, I stopped to check in on the kids, as I always do. The first thing I noticed was an empty bed, a sight that can stop a mother's heart.
After a split second of sheer panic, I noticed a knee sticking up out of what I had mistaken for a pile of discarded stuffed animals. But, in fact, it was a cleverly disguised fortress:
I guess the floor was more comfortable.
And, lastly, after five years of marriage, I finally turned something pink in the wash! Nothing spectacular, like a dress shirt, but only a sad little dishtowel and a pair of old socks. Better luck next time!
