This and That

Time to post, as a friend reminded me earlier this week...she came to visit, and saw I hadn't updated in a while.

Wish I had current pictures of our babies to show you, but you can see them at Jack's Mama (link on the sidebar). They are gaining weight and plumping out. I swear, they are so pretty! They remind me of their mama when she was born, except for the masses of dark hair. Eyebrows are nonexistant, and their eyelashes are very light, so I'm wondering if the dark hair will be replaced by something lighter as they grow.

Mama has me knitting little caps for them. It takes a few hours to make one. That's probably because I watch tv while I knit. So, Jack's Christmas stocking has been put on hold, although I did get a few stitches in over the weekend. It should be done by Christmas, though.

The school year is off and running. In fact, it feels like nothing but running--there is just so much to be done. Public school is a busy place.

Last week we had supper at McD's so Jack could play and work off some energy. He decided to ride home with me, and as I buckled him into his carseat he said, "Listen, yaya, we gotta talk about my damn school." Honest--I don't know where that came from! We have learned to be very careful around Jack-the-child-tape-recorder. At any rate, gasping to control my laughter, I asked him, "What about your school, Jack?" "Well," he said, "there's just so many things to be done." Then he changed the subject. He doesn't go to daycare anymore, so this was completely out of the blue. He's right, though. There are a great many things to be done at school.

Payday is coming, and so is Christmas. I'll need to be thinking gifts over the next two months, and planning for the nearly-annual trip to Houston. Christmas with those little guys (and their parents), is an exciting experience!

Jack stops almost everyone we pass whether we know them or not and tells them that he has a new bike or that he has new sisters. His conversational skills are really impressive. But I guess I might be biased.

He really cracks me up when he starts out with "Listen, Yaya..." I usually know I'm in for something good. Like the day he told me we had to "cwean up all dese cwaps" on your coffee table...

Yeah, you know he doesn't tell me "Listen Mama..." I wish he did. I think it's cute.

I don't think I mentioned this before, but I love your new layout, especially the header.
We're counting down the days until you visit!

Hann and her hubby fixed up the header for me, from something I found a while back. And Hann made the color and layout changes. It just amazes me that she can do that from Australia, while I read a good book...
