love the freckles, love the smile, love the eyes…
love this girl.
yesterday, van decided he wanted to be a skateboarder. not without the necessary precautions though. knee pads, elbow pads, wrist guards, and a helmet, this dude is making sure he doesn’t encounter any road rash.
wow, look at him go!
showing off his skills to the homies
the first skating attempt was a success. he’s ready to try again on monday!
the “mia monster” as van calls her, is sometimes not very nice to van (not on purpose, just baby stuff). she screams in his ear, pinches him, grabs him, hits him, takes things from him, slimes him, falls on him, messes up his video games, rips his books, and is just pretty much a pain in his side most of the time. not to mention she’s been threatening his territory as the youngest child ever since she got here.
he’s usually a good sport about it, but it’s hard for him to understand that she’s not doing these things on purpose and he gets annoyed at her a lot.
lately though, every once in a while, she’ll show van her good side. smiles, hugs, cuddles, cuteness, non-annoying things.
it lasts just long enough to reel him in and make him like her again…before the mia monster emerges:)
money doesn’t grow on trees. if you want a video game, and don’t have the money- you gotta earn it.
good job guys, the complaining was minimal.
yes. she did. she celebrated edward’s 109th birthday (yesterday). she made a cake, displayed all the books, and even hung up a sign- “edward you’re so fine, you’re one hundred and nine”
yeah. we couldn’t believe it either.
turns out it was a pretty dang good cake and this morning when she asked where all the cake went, i told her that edward came over last night when she was asleep and ate it. the funny part was, she argued the authenticity of my story by informing me that if he ate it, then he would have had to regurgitate it later and that wasn’t very likely.
what am i going to do with that girl?
in celebration of Father’s day, here’s a little shout out to our amazing dad who loves us so much, and takes care of us in every way, who we couldn’t live without…
and since Brazil is playing in the World Cup today, let’s include a special shout out from our little Brazilian cheerleader…
Happy Father’s Day/Go Brasil!
