I wish they got along this well when they were awake!

Guess who's gunning for "Favorite Child" status?

Thomas not only made this (using dry-erase marker so it would wash off later), he got out the camera and took the picture himself. All together now: Awwwwww.

Cupcake Fun

The Cub Scouts held their Blue and Gold Banquet last night, and each scout was supposed to bring a patriotic dessert. Here's Thomas with his cupcakes.
Yeah, I don't know what's up with the arm, either, but I thought he had a cute smile. Here's a closeup on one of the cupcakes.The "Star-Spangled-est Dessert" award was well deserved, don't you think? I got some pre-made fondant and star-shaped cookie cutters for him to play with. Fondant looks cool and is fun to decorate with, but man, does it ever taste naaaasty.

And here's Katie helping to show off the cupcakes. Note the uncombed hair at 5:00 in the afternoon. That, my friends, is a mark of good parenting.

Sleepy Max

Do you remember being five years old and still possessing the ability to fall asleep anywhere, including the middle of a staircase?
Ah, to be young and carefree again.

Yet another home improvement project by Katie

Yes, it's washable paint. No, I still haven't managed to get all of it off the underside of the table.
