Matt's letter to Santa...

Dear Santa,

I would like to be a scientist. So I need...
- Markers
- Paper
- A case of rubber bands
- A computer that will fit in my pocket with games that just play and you don't have to wait for them to download
- Gloves (winter and scientist gloves)
- Ipod (in blue, of course)
- Ipod charger (‘cause it won't work without one and if it dies I need a charger to help it)
- Snuggie and pillow pet (but don't ask Grandma 'cause I think she wants to get me one)
- Lego cool doors and windows and stuff
- A puppy (but it has to be bigger than my cats - unless you take my cats, then it can be any size)
- 8 or more bakugans
- Pizza lunchables, at least 6 - we eat lunch EVERY day
- Different color paper - red, blue, orange, pink (for when the brain explodes because I am a scientist), and yellow and green and black (for the heart)
-White paper for bones
- Scissors for cutting the bones
- wii games
- Water (in case I get thirsty)
- Chocolate covered strawberries or the chocolate for Dad to do it
- the 3rd X-Men movie
- New shoes – ‘cause I need z-straps and school shoes
- Winter hat (‘cause I already have a Star Wars hat from when I fought the real Darth Vader from the movies and didn’t die)
- A tent with Darth Vader’s picture
- Gardening supplies – like seeds and flowers
- Helmet for Buzz Lightyear costume for next Halloween that can slide up and down like the real Buzz LIghtyear
- The Buzz Lightyear yogurts for my school lunches
- Sticky foam and tracers
- Magnets for our refrigerator
- Hairbrush
- Magnifying glass
- Ninja turtle toy – WITH movie
- Picture frame with a little stand thing
- Drumset and electric guitar

My mom needs
- A house with more than one bathroom
- Catfood
- More Halloween decorations

Everyone needs
- Sunscreen
- Water
- More cheese (‘cause we may run out)
- Apples, bananas, and strawberries (so Dad can dip them in chocolate)

Thanks Santa – I know you will never die ‘cause God made you that way.

Love, Matt

(Good luck Santa!)

guess what this is...



It is the hood of my car - covered in ICE!!!! I can't believe it is really only October 19th - even my car door was frozen shut. First snow on the 15th, now this...



I am SO not ready for winter yet...

He's not a baby anymore...

Matt did it! He made it through his first DOUBLE FEATURE! Woo Hoo!!!!



We saw Toy Story and Toy Story 2 and he made it through both movies with flying colors. (He even tried to get me to take him to another one.)

I really am thrilled that he is growing up and is so much fun to hang out with... but I miss the little Matt who couldn't sit still if we crazy-glued his pants to a chair. Sigh, growing up is hard (on the parents).

gift from a little visitor...

I had to bring the kids to work with me for a few hours this morning. It was the first time I had ever attempted it - it wasn't the end of the universe.

Matt quickly settled into his breakfast and coloring in the conference room where there is a tv with the Disney Channel. Don't ask me why we have the Disney Channel at work, I don't even know why we have a tv. The last time we turned it on was to watch the inauguration and I don't think it was ever used before then.

Molly quickly finished her breakfast and began looking for things to do. She completely cleaned my office! It hasn't been that clean since... well, I have no idea when - it looks GREAT!

All too quickly (for them), Andrew came to pick them up and their adventure in my office was over. Although, it wasn't until much later in the day when I went to make sure that the conference room was as clean as the kids had found it - I found this great little present on the whiteboard...
