Ohh boy....

So midterms are this week, Dave goes out of town, the boys and I head out of town two days after D, and I have a conference proposal due in the morning. Good thing I blew off doing my work this weekend.
Gee... one day of fifty five degree weather and I get full blown spring fever? oops! pictures to follow...

Purim Party

At preschool the celebrated Purim yesterday. Jake was pretty sure that his teacher Jill dressed up as Leia just for him; he was sooooo exicted!!!

Any guesses what Jake is supposed to be? No, not Johnny Weir...

New Baby!!!!

Baby Jack was born last week and man is he a looker! I can't wait to see him in a week.

Boys are gross. Like seriously seriously gross. I feel like an anthropologist exploring the origins of a horrid and grotesque culture that modern ethics would outlaw despite being deemed "culturally insensitive." Atticus is no grosser than Jake; however, it is his endless mimicry of Jake that has illuminated just how gross Jake was.
Case in point : Licking

Jake has taught Atti a new trick. They lick stuff. Specifically they lick each other. And, should the little gremlins stubble across a resting and peaceful parent, they lick us. I recognize (and shutter) that there are a great many vastly grosser things they could lick. However, the receipt of such a lick is sooooooooo foul. It starts with a giggle. The giggle gets doubled by the wee one. Then they extend their freakishly long tongues. I feel like a sleepier and vastly crankier version of princess Leia attempting to avoid the friendly licks of Jaba da bebe. Then they scamper off to find someone else to lick. Giggling and hugging each other. There are no words to describe how much delight we get from seeing them enjoy each other's company so much, but it is an exactly equal amount of sketched out that we feel when they look at each other with "wicked" little glares and yell "LICKIES!"

Freaking gross, dudes.

Welcome to our new baby cousin!

As tension mounts here (and boy, are the boys excited) we decided to have a celebration to enjoy the fact that the boys are getting a new baby cousin at some point today. So, Aunt Amanda and Uncle Cheese- here is your own rendition of Little Rabbit Foo Foo to pass the sleepless nights! We love you and couldn't be happier for you!
Ohh and apparently your baby told Jake that we need chocolate pancakes to celebrate!
