"The boys sat on my lap this morning in the rocker/recliner. They didn't fight or shove or hit or anything! On the contrary! They wrapped their cute little arms around each other and told each other-- repeatedly-- "I love you." (From my "Happies" book...October 24.)
S: I love you, Liam
S: Makes threatening gesture.
L: Okay, Soren! You love me!
Liam: I kiss you?
Soren: Um....too disgusting!
"Liam, while you're having a bath, I'm going to make you a present. It might take a while, so...enjoy your eight hour long bath." -Soren
L: I won!
S: No, Liam. It wasn't a race. If I win, it was a race. If you win, it wasn't a race.
L: Mommy, look! It's moon time!
S: "Hi, moon!"
L: NO! LIAM TALKING TO MOON!
One morning the boys made up a "dance" that consisted of running around the kitchen island in opposite directions and hugging every time they met.
|In their Halloween costumes. Soren is a necromancer; Liam is the red Power Ranger.|
|This is how we paint here in the Skousen household.|
|Crafting gingerbread houses on the first snowy day of the year.|
|Stretching their IQs with a rousing game of Cranium. |
We are a very "clothes optional" kind of family.
