Over the mountain and through the desert...

To Granny's house we went. Well, we got back from Granny's house in Yakima yesterday (where we completely forgot the camera) and we are all home sick today. Go figure. We literally walked in the door at 11:30 and had to be at Lake Wilderness Park at noon for our Co-Ed Adult Kickball Jamboree. We made it but fortunately the ref and the guy that drew the lines were running late, too. Kickball rocks!!! Dustin made a sweet double play at first base and I covered home plate as catcher. We got our butts kicked two games in a row but we had a lot of fun doing it. Go !Hey That's My Bike!

So, Granny's was pretty low key- the mandatory lunch at Miners, watched a ton of movies, sat around and played.... Not much to do but somehow we always come home exhausted. And sick. Hopefully the Pullman trip goes better.

Happy Birthday Baba!!

Happy Birthday Baba! If you know Holly's dad, tell him happy birthday today!!! Also, we found out our due date- November 21st. No pics yet- James Dean went to bed just fine but so did Mommy- right on the couch. Maybe tonight...

My little man

Here's two classic Breckin moves in the last two days.

Hilarious Moment #1:
So, Breckin's really into airplanes, trains, things with wheels and big noises. Lately, airplanes are leading the pack. He has a brown, leather bomber jacket that he got when he was born that is sadly getting too small.... He also has a killer pair of blue Chuck Taylors that he is just now starting to love.
Anyway, we head off to school yesterday (or was it Monday) and as we pull into the driveway of school, he says "Mommy, let's turn around. I don't want to go to school today." Me: "Too late, buddy. We're here and I heard you're going to have a fun day. Look, there's Austin (kid in his class) waving at you in the window. He's excited you're here." We walk in, he goes right to the book shelf, leans one arm on the top of the shelf, crosses one leg in front of the other- totally looks like a miniature James Dean- and says, "Mom (he only calls me that when he's trying to pull a fast one), this place is boring."

Well, look who got too cool for school. Funny how that boring school sucked him right into the train track play station and had him rolling on the floor laughing with the other kids about 10 nanoseconds later.... What a faker.

Hilarious Moment #2:
Last night as I'm trying to tuck Breckin into bed and convincing him for the 43rd time that it's better for him to sleep in his bed than the couch or my bed, he gets squirrelier by the second. He's pushing the covers down as fast as I'm trying to sneak them up while handing him books or tools (his favorite bedtime pals). He finally looks at me and says "Mommy, I'm allergic to tucking in." WHAT??? I'm totally blaming Dustin for that one. I'm pretty sure I've heard him say he's allergic to vacuuming, cleaning the bathroom, and doing dishes.

And so what happened to the boy who was allergic to being tucked in, you might ask? Yeah, Mommy and Breckin fell asleep on Mommy's bed around 9:30. I'm such a sucker.

I have to say, the pressure of having to add pictures has totally been lifted. I have a bunch of good ones and if I can get little James Dean to get over being tucked in, I might get them posted tonight.

My personal debate

Here's what I'm thinkin. I clearly don't have time to update one child's blog let alone two. Then, I'd have to rename the first blog to include the second child but couldn't really call it something until we had a name and we won't have that figured out for a long time. So, I'm taking over. Now it's Mommy's blog. Sorry, Breckin. I'd like to share some thoughts about Dustin, Breckin, my growing belly, and the stuff we do from week to week (I know better than to say day to day...). Sure, Breckin may post stuff on here and there's a handy little link on the side so you can still go see his- although it won't be updated beyond today. And, now, Dustin can post stuff, too since he did our original website. How's that?

P.S. I'm currently taking suggestions for how to get rid of the sickness that goes along with this belly. It's not unmanageable but when it hits, I despise it.
