The Week in Kids

This week...

...was a big one for Samuel.

He turned four.

There were even over-frosted cupcakes with Disney-Pixar characters on them to prove it.

And, plates to match.

You have to love black frosting, don't you?

I have to thank Samuel's teacher, Miss Regina, far salvaging these pictures for me after I left my memory card at home.  Teachers rock!  And, we have a family celebration planned for this weekend, so there should be more to come.

Also this week...

...was a big one for Catherine.

She did a little dance.

She found a way to sit on her bottom, yet still disobey her mother.

She embraced her maternal side, when straped her Elmo doll into her old high chair and fed him a snack.

She wore her first striped tights.  "Ty, ty."  She LOVED them.  This girl needs to move to a cooler climate.

She got her first pair of Levi's.

And, she took advantage of the fact that her mother was busy trying to get a picture of her, to do a little exploring.

Also this week...

Jonah was a good sport about not being the center of attention.

Breakfast presents.  Sam's new booster seat, that he got to ride to school in.
He helped Sam open presents, and he really helped.  He didn't just rip them open and then try to get to them before his brother could.

Before dinner presents.  Sam is so tired from a full day of school and cupcakes.
Jonah, also told me he wanted to build me a magic castle, where dinner would fix itself.  I love you, Jonah!

I hope you all had a festive week, too.

See you next week!


  1. AHH!! These are so cute that I can't even stand it :) Miss you all!!

  2. Happy Birthday Samuel! Pics are great.

  3. Sounds like a good week in all. But do I have to love black frosting? (because I really don't). Have a great weekend...or will we hear from you again as you blog to 200?
    Love the tights, Catherine!

  4. I'm telling you, six years old or not - you've got to keep sharing Jonah's comments.
    The look on Sam's face with the plates is classic. I love it!
    And I like the ty-ty's too! Cate looks adorable! Kids are just too fun (at least when you're looking back at pictures, instead of wrangling them off the counter tops in their new jeans.)

  5. It all looks like FUN!

    Love the birthday boy cupcakes, especially, love the magic dinner making (that would be awesome!) and the tights too!

  6. And you were worried about not being Mother of the year!

  7. I get tired just thinking of keeping up with that little girl!

    Happy Birthday to Samuel! ;)

  8. That Cate makes me want to have a daughter all over again. Or a granddaughter. She is just too cute for words. Love the tights & jeans! And happy birthday to big boy Samuel!
