Today I Took A Shower With Superman!

Really. I'm not kidding.
As I was rinsing the shampoo off my hair this morning I open my eyes and there he is.
Lying there.
Staring up at me!

It's not the first toy I have found in my shower.

I have showered with
matchbox cars,
plastic balls,
and on one occasion
a pair of plastic sunglasses/
nerf safety goggles.

I don't know why my 5 year old insists on bringing toys into the shower.

Maybe it is because he has been showering since he was two and never got the pleasure of sitting for hours in the bathtub playing with toys. . . 

I don't know.

All I know is when Kale started taking showers it was easier just to throw Kristopher in with him.
(for the record they take separate showers now)

Did I ruin him?

Oh well.

For now I will just pick up toys from yet another spot in the house - the shower!

Take me out to the Ball Game

We had our first week of games.

Kale played centerfield - but he's in the big leagues now so he's happy to just be on the field.
He did catch a huge fly ball all the way out there - looked like a pro - pounded his fist in his glove - followed the ball - and it fell right in his glove.
He gave the fans a good laugh with the fist pump he gave himself after he caught it!

This little man played an inning at first base.
He looked at me and said,
"First base mom. This is the best day of my life!"

And Karalyn doesn't seem to mind at least 4 days a week we get to be outside at the park!

So far. . . I don't either!

And It Begins Again. . .


Here is Kris with his FARM YANKEES all lined up and ready to enter the field!

I will mention that I am TEAM MOM again!
I know.
I said last year was it.
But when no one else volunteered, I just had to do it!
Besides I really, really, really, wanted to make another team banner!

So here they are. . .
taking the field!

Before the ceremonies began they held a "wiffle ball" game.
The coaches of the teams were the players and
the players were the coaches!

Kale's name was drawn to be one of the coaches
and he was really excited!
(Oh yah, he's on the AAA Dodgers)

He took his job very seriously!

the best part of Opening Day was getting FREE BANANA SPLIT coupons and using them that very day!

We have our first game TONIGHT!

I've been going through a lot of my mom's things the past few months.
A little while ago I came across this picture
and today is the perfect day to post it!


Can we please bring back the "birthday dress" tradition?

She is my little helper. . .
and this is her job.

And nobody else better even think about doing it for her,
or helping her in any way.

She runs from the other side of the house when she hears the dishwasher being opened and the dishes being taken out.

She says: 
"Rara aw"
translated to 
Kara's job

She does a GREAT JOB!
I know you wish your silverware drawer could look like mine does. . .

Big Trucks and Little Boys

A little while ago I was in the kitchen.
My boys were outside helping their dad with yard work and playing basketball in between.
I heard a sound like a freight train outside.
I ran to the window and there was this gigantic truck.
But what was even more fun was to see Kristopher's face glued to the truck.
In complete awe.
I don't even know what the truck does,
but it captured my son's complete attention
for all of about 30 seconds!
Which for a 5 year old can be sometimes really hard to do!

We had so much fun this year with the OLYMPICS!
We don't eat dinner with the TV on. . .
except while watching the OLYMPICS!

And to make the OLYMPICS even more fun -
the boys are sporting their very own VANCOUVER 2010 OLYMPIC HATS!
(compliments of signing up for Dish Network)

Kale's favorite - Snowboarding
Kris's favorite - Flipping through the air (Aerials)
Kyle's favorite - Ice Dancing or Curling (he couldn't decide)
My favorite - Having Kristopher ask when Michael Phelps was going to be on
