Thumbs Up

Date of occurrence:
November 5, 2016.

Boy looka here, we got a mechanic in the family!

I didn't know they made mechanic suits in Levi's size.

But.... you can't start early enough, because practice makes perfect.

And what does Levi think about all this?

Yup, thumbs up!

Ghostly Encounters

Date of occurrence:
November 3, 2016.

As I wake up our little man, the first thing out of his mouth is: "I had the scariest dream ever."

I have to know of course, and he tells me about his nightmare.

Kc: "There was this ghost lady and she wanted to kill me. She came at me with a knife and then she suddenly stopped. We went to a restaurant for some food and I told her I didn't believe in ghosts, because they don't exist. She said they did.

I invited her over to my house and when we got there, a ghost was standing in the door. He wouldn't let me in and tried to kill me."

Me: "What happened?"
Kc: "You woke me up."
Me: "Wow. You sure had some ghostly encounters last night, huh?"
Kc: "Yeah!"

As we go through our morning routine, I wonder what prompted him to dream about ghosts. I don't have to wait very long. About 15 minutes later he asks: "Oh. BTW, did I tell y'all I saw the new Ghost Buster movie with Mama last weekend?"

Nope, he hadn't told us that, but it explains a lot.

He must have gone to sleep with the movie on his mind!

Date of occurrence:
October 31, 2016.

It is Halloween and Kc had planned on dressing up as a character from minecraft this year.

Unfortunately, that didn't work out, but that presented no problem. He chose to be a Skylander instead and is happy with his outfit.

Lily turns into a little witch and Bell transforms into a mermaid.

The weather is not cooperating. The rain is coming down pretty good and only Bell and Kc go trick or treating.

They have a good time and make out like bandits.

As far as our little mermaid goes; yes, she could walk! Grin.

Leaving The Leaves

Date of occurrence:
October 31, 2016.

There is no doubt about it; it is fall. The leaves are covering the ground in an abundance of color.

Levi and Daley don't let the chance to play in and with them pass them up.

Hands full are thrown in the air and within no time leaves are raining down on them.

The fun only lasts so long and the time to go inside arrives way too soon. Sorry, guys.

You have to leave the leaves!

A Job Well Done

Date of occurrence:
October 29, 2016.

The Dutch don't celebrate Halloween.

That doesn't mean you can't carve pumpkins and participate in sharing the fall feeling.

Besides, carving funny, scary, or weird looking faces is a joyful event and Levi is all up for that.

He sure does a good job at it.

Within no time an entire regiment of pumpkins adorns the entrance of his home.

Well done, little guy. Well done!

I Stay With You

Date of occurrence:
October 25, 2016.

Mom has got things to do and people to see and asks if we could watch Isabella for a couple of hours. Sure, no problem. We would love to and look forward to having the little critter over.

We are not the only ones who are happy about it. As soon as Bell steps inside, she grins from ear to ear and says: "I stay with you!"

The first thing she wants to do is play with the doll house.

We get it out together and set it up for her. She loves it and plays to her heart's content.

We just finished lunch when her Mom returns. Bell is not very pleased with the fact that she has to go home. She wants to stay and expresses it over and over.

Yeah, we know and we would like you to stay too, but all good things must come to an end.

We will have you stay over again though.

Soon. Very soon!!! :-)

Never Too Many Cooks

Date of occurrence:
October 24, 2016.

Mom quit her job and is doing volunteers work until she finds another occupation which better suits her needs and desires.

The boys sure enjoy her being around almost all the time, especially when a lot of that time is spend in the kitchen.

They baked cookies and some other treats yesterday and today, Levi and Daley got the opportunity to make their own pizzas with the toppings of their choosing.

It sure looks delicious.

There is no better place to be then in the kitchen. After all, that is where all the goodies are fabricated.

And sometimes there can never be too many cooks in the kitchen, because many hands make light work...

Of the results of their labor!

The New Crib

Date of occurrence:
October 22, 2016.

After putting his previous crib through a rigorous test, which it wasn't able to withstand, Daley got a new one.

It is strong, sturdy, pretty, and rather large as well.

Our little buddy sort of disappears in it, but he is happy and that is the main thing.

It is not only Daley-proof, but also Daley-approved!

Don't Thank Me....

Date of occurrence:
October 21, 2016.

Kc is sick and Mom thinks it is time for him to see a doctor. While Opa takes them over to the health facility, I watch Lily and Isabella.

I play with them a little bit and notice all the dishes in the sink. I might as well make myself useful by taking care of those.

Bell pulls up a chair next to me and tells me where everything goes. She even is so kind to help me put up the cups and plates.

Lily is doing her own thing and crawls from one end of the living room and kitchen to the other. Every now and then she stops to play with a toy.

We are almost finished when Mom and Kc get back. Mom is pleasantly surprised and extremely grateful for all the work we took out of her hands.

Don't thank me, thank Bell.

I couldn't have done it without her!:-)

Lunch Time

Date of occurrence:
October 17, 2016.

It is (grand)parents and student lunchtime at school today.

Armed with my own lunch, I make my way to the cafeteria and wait for Kc's class to come in and get their lunch bags.

We go outside and find a nice spot on the grass.

Kc is rather picky as he goes through his bagged lunch. He gives me the carrots and tomatoes and devours what pleases his taste buds.

The weather is really nice and we enjoy each others company and talk about his day.

The half hour lunch is over in no time and for our little man that means...

Putting his nose back to the grind stone!
