Mattisms (just from this weekend)...














According to Matt, a tornado is... when a big drill comes into the ground, then twists a lot, and then makes a giant hole.

*******************************************************************************

Matt: Dad, who was I named after?
Andrew: Your middle name is the same as my Dad's middle name.
Matt: I know that, who did you name me Matthew after.
Andrew: One of Jesus's friends.
Matt: Which one?
Andrew: Matthew.
Matt: Oh, okay.

*******************************************************************************

Molly: I want to go to Washington DC this summer.
Matt: Not me, I want to go to Washington BC.

*******************************************************************************

In a moment of exasperation...

Matt: For goodness snakes!

*******************************************************************************

Our neighbor put a large wooden cut out of Cap't. Jack in their front yard (to celebrate their daughter's high school graduation)...

Matt: "Mom, can we put a Peter Pan in our yard. That way everyone will know that they are safe. Peter Pan will protect us!"

Rehearsals are moving right along and their is building excitement as we start putting togehter props, sets, and costumes. It is hard to believe that we have been talking about the Music Man since last August and we are one month away from show dates.

teacher gifts...



What are these you ask? Why they are lanyards...

In looking for cute and easy ideas for teacher gifts (considering between the two kids - they have 20 teachers) I found this tutorial.

These lanyards came together rather quickly - and they really are cute (now I have to find some other material and make one for me).

Here they are all wrapped and ready to go (sorry for the HORRIBLE lighting - but because the sun has apparently gone on vacation permanently in Connecticut there is no natural lighting to be found).

We survived the sleepover...

Molly's 9th Birthday was a blast! Those girls giggled and whispered all night long!


The table was set like this theme and was a huge hit with the girls.

Sugar covered cupcakes!

The girls enjoy dinner.

TWISTER! A birthday party staple.

I think she had a good time!

Music Man...

I haven't been around much lately, the Music Man rehearsals have begun and free time no longer exists for me.

Here are a few rehearsal photos...
