We Now Have 2 Big Boys

So we finally decided to cut the curls off of our little baby. Andrew claimed that he was going to cut Eric's hair, so we told him he could cut off the first curl. Eric did pretty good. He kept looking around trying to figure out what I was doing. When I used the clippers, it tickled so he would tilt his head to the side and scrunch his neck up so much that I couldn't even get to his hair. But we put Cars in and he was fascinated enough to let me finish. He definitely looks like a big boy now.

Talk About Adorable Torture

We went to get our pictures taken last Saturday. Let's just say that our photographer earned her money. Andrew started off good and then he started thinking about it too much. Everytime she asked him to smile he would bite his lower lip. She finally told Andrew that if he did it again she was going to spank him. Well he didn't think that was funny so he was done for.It took Eric about 5 seconds to burst into tears. I began to think that it just wasn't going to work out. Looking back through the pictures though is pretty funny watching Eric's range of emotions. Enjoy!

Look Who's 34!

Reed had his 34th birthdaya week ago. We had the coolest party ever. We played pin the tail on the donkey and twister. Andrew was so excited. As soon as we woke up, he made Reed open up half his presents.

Party Crashers

We went to the Fire Museum yesterday. Unfortunately we didn't know that someone had reserved it for a birthday party. They still let us come in but it was crowded because it is a really small museum. Oh well. We had a lot of fun anyway. Reed and I felt a little foolish, but Andrew and Eric were blissfully unaware. Andrew currently wants to be a fireman when he grows up. So he had all of us doing drills. We had to slide down the pole, run and get dressed and then jump into the firetruck and zoom to the fire. He has actually always been fascinated with firemen. I have to include this video clip from a year and a half ago. Even as I was filming this video I was nostalgic thinking about him growing up and not doing super cute things like this anymore.

Just a little more info on what is going on in this video. The couch pillows are the flames and when he throws them on the floor that means that those flames have been put out. Also, when he whacks the side of the couch, he is breaking the window.

Fun with Daddy

Because I am computer challenged, I could not get these pictures to change order. I loaded them in the order that I wanted, but then they showed up in reverse order. So if you want the real effect, go to the 3rd photo and look at it first and then work your way up.

Eric helped Reed make cupcakes the other day. He was a big helper scooping the batter into the cupcake holders, and a big helper at eating them. He likes to see the process through from beginning to end.

Andrew and Eric like to hide in the cupboard. So Eric thought, "If it is fun to hide in here with Andrew then it will probably be extra fun with daddy." He did get frustrated that the doors wouldn't shut though, so he tried to help by pushing on daddy's legs. For some reason it didn't work.

Imaginary Boss?

I've heard of kids having imaginary friends, but have you ever heard of one with an imaginary boss? Well that is what Andrew has. He is constantly telling us what his boss says and does. Sometimes when I tell him that he needs to do something he says, "I already knew that mama. My boss told me." In fact the other day he wrote a letter to his boss telling him that he was not a good boss so he (Andrew) was getting a new boss. So now he talks about his "new boss." It is really funny and slightly disturbing, because he really does talk about him a lot!

Here's another cute Andrew story. The other day Reed was helping him get ready for bed, and Andrew says, "Oh daddy, there is a great new kind of diaper out that you should get for Eric...Huggies Ultra Fit. They're new and they're really good." Advertising works! He had seen a commercial for them when he was watching Dora. He just said it so matter-of-factly that it was hilarious.
