Just call him "Mr. Wizard"

Cory and Rafe had a "scientific" morning. First they made a volcano then they ended by making squishy bugs. Nothing like the smell of vinegar mixed with coffee in the morning!! (Please notice the lovely costumes they are both wearing!!)

Buck - The Librarian


Rafe has had this chair in this room since he was born. Buck has NEVER sat in it or even seemed to notice it until we moved. From the very first time Buck went into Rafe's new room he has started sitting in Rafe's reading chair. Rafe has now named Buck the Librarian! He scans Rafe's books before Rafe is able to read them. Can't you tell how much Buck enjoys this??!!

Valentine Cookies???

Rafe and I made very unusual Valentine's Day cookies this morning. They were not shaped like ordinary hearts. Oh no, Rafe cut his cookies out in the shape of pumpkins, bats, ghosts and dinosaurs. He is SO hung-up on Halloween!!! The main thing is they tasted great! Happy Valentine's Day!!

I'm BACK!!!





Well, I am FINALLY back on the internet. Let me just tell you it has been EXTREMELY hard to be without television, phone, DVR and, mostly, internet for THREE WEEKS. I guess it is a blessing in disguise because I had a lot more time to get things done at the house that I would have otherwise spent on the computer. However, I feel like so much has happened in the last three weeks that I was not able to share. We are slowly but surely getting settled into the new house. Rafe LOVES his green room and enjoys climbing up the brick wall around the pool and pretending to be Spiderman. I will send lots more pictures as we get everything into place. I guess you can expect to see them this time next year!
