The Tragedy of an Older Sister

Just so you don't think we don't do "boy" stuff..... We did build some tracks yesterday and played with trains.

But, you can see what happens when your next oldest sibling is a girl. Teagan loves these purple, sparkly heels. They click and clack on the wood floors. Hopefully, you can't tell in the picture, that he has pink nailpolish on one finger because he insisted. And in case there are any questions, HIS DAD DID IT! Teagan has a serious shoe fetish, and he's really into carrying the baby dolls around, giving them hugs and kisses, and putting them to bed in the doll cradle.

My rough and tough tomboy

Tatum came running up to me earlier and this is the conversation that followed. Keep in mind, she's only 4:
T: Oh my God! Oh my God!
M: What's the matter?
T: There is a spider in my room.
M: Show me where.
T: (looking for the spider, whispering) I don't know where he went. I'm so freaked out.
M: Spiders don't bother people. They eat bugs. They run away from people.
T: This one was different.
M: How?
T: It sucks people's blood.
M: What?!?!
T: I saw one like that.
M: Where?
T: On the trashcan, it was fat and yellow and it sucks people's blood.

Too much TV? Or brotherly influence?

I know, I know

My Mom told me yesterday that I am a poor Blogger. Well, I knew that would happen. I have always been poor at keeping up with anything. Anyway, I got a brand new camera for my birthday (Thanks, Mom!), but I haven't started using it yet, so I thought I would pull out some old pics. These are actually pics of Spring Break 2006. We stayed in New Hampshire, (which apparently doesn't have Spring), and took day trips to Boston and Maine. We shopped at the outlet malls in Kittery, then drove up to the coast. We had just bought a new dvd recorder that also took still shots. Well, it took us nearly a year to get around to uploading them. :oP

Here is a pic of Tanner and Travis in front of a lighthouse at the coast. And don't ask me where, because I don't remember. That lighthouse is actually on a little island that we never did figure out how they got over to.

This is a pic of me and the kids on the coast of Maine. Does it look like Spring break with us in our heavy coats? We had to hurry up and click the pic because even with those coats, we were freezing our buns off.
