2011's Year End Review-Walks

So taking walks to the mail box with the boys can be complicated.  Mostly on the return trip home since I am carrying an arm load of junk mail and trying to hold two hands across a 4-way intersection.  It got a little easier once the boys decided it was fun to hold each others hands. 

I said it got a little easier.  Now that they are all about their own wills, they throw fits about holding hands while crossing the street, causing me to drop my mail in the intersection with oncoming cars barreling towards us.  Gotta love it!

Either way, it usually works out better than when Paul takes them out for walks.

2011's Year end Review-November's Yard Work

While most of our family was starting to shovel snow in November, we were just starting to lose leaves on the trees.  So the boys and I got to work as soon as our first tree shed it's foliage.

"This yard work thing is so easy I can do it with my eyes closed"
"It's gonna take a while with just this tiny bucket."
This counts as helping right?
We spied on our neighbors.
We picked our noses (the boys, not me)
And since Seth wouldn't help bury Matthew he decided to do it himself.

We were so excited crunch all of the leaves.  It was just too bad the other four trees in our yard didn't even start changing colors until the end of December.
