Isabelle's Chair

My friend Tracy gave me this chair at my shower. I decided that Isabelle could finally hold her head up well enough to use it so I decided to put her in it. She liked it for a little while and then she let me know that she was ready to get out!

Justin's a Great Helper!

Every Saturday a neighborhood boy comes over to pick up the dog poop. Last week Justin decided that he wanted to help. I wasn't too excited about it but Justin really wanted to so I put a glove on him and gave him a bag and hoped that he wouldn't actually try to help once he got outside. Well, he did try to help and instead of using the glove he used his bare hand! It was so gross. Don't worry we washed his hands really well afterwards!

Justin's New Car!

I had been trying to find this car for Justin for a long time. Every time I tried to buy it from Craigslist I was too late. Well on Saturday I saw a sign for a garage sale so I thought I would just drive by and check it out. To my surprise there sat the Little Tikes Cozy Coupe (that's the name of the car). An even better surprise was that it was only $4! If you have ever looked for anything Little Tikes you know that even used items are still expensive. The cheapest I had seen this on Craigslist was $20 so I was very excited. Justin loves his new car. He doesn't really drive around in it. He just likes to open the door, climb in, shut the door, get out and then do it all over again. He also loves to put things in the "trunk." So far I have seen him drive around with a drink, a pumpkin, and a dirty diaper in there. I can't wait to see what he finds next to put in there!

Our new car!

We decided to get a new car since there was absolutely no extra space in our old truck. I was leaning towards a minivan but Dave didn't want one. We ended up getting a Tahoe and it is a nice compromise because it has the captain's chairs in the second row instead of a bench so Robyn can get in back without us having to flip down a bench . Plus it has navigation and a camera for when you back up so you can make sure not to hit anything. For some reason Dave thinks I really need this feature! Hopefully we can keep this truck for awhile because if feels like we are getting a different car every six months!

We had a great time last night trunk or treating! Robyn was a pirate, Justin was a turtle and Isabelle was a leopard. Robyn had a great time getting candy, but Justin would cry every time someone would put candy in his bag! Isabelle slept peacefully in the stroller.

I'm a blogger!

Okay, i'll admit it. I didn't want to do it because it seems like everyone else already is, but I decided that it was a great way to keep a journal of what is going on with my family. So here is our official family blog.
