Kids say the darndest things

Before I get into this I should provide some background to this story. A little while ago Drew was fixing our gate and needed to use the screwdriver to get the large screws out that held in the hinges. His faithful and ever-present assistant Lilly was close at hand learning as much as she could about screw drivers and associated hardware. It should also be noted that Daddy-dear is the best "fixer" in the world according the Lilly and should anything be broken she is optimistic that Daddy can and will repair it. Too bad we cant all add this to our resumes huh?

I was a little worn out the other day and just needed a few minutes of shut-eye while Lilly played trains and Aidan was napping. True to her inquisitive nature Lilly had to come and ask me if I was all right. I explained that I wasnt feeling well (tired) and just needed to rest and take a break for a bit. Here is the conversation that followed:

L: Mommy are you ok?
M: Yes, mommy just wants to feel better. I need to rest for a few minutes.
L: You feel bad? Daddy can help you. He is a good fixer.
M: That's good sweetie (trying to get her to go play)
L: Daddy can screw you, you know.
M: (eyes open in surprise)
L: Daddy can screw you to pieces and then you will feel better fast. He is good at screwing.

My nap ended there... as she proceeded to explain how to screw things... with the screwdriver...

Our little girl... Princess Hard Hat

Well... at least she's well-rounded in her interests. The versatility of a 3 year old... I had to share these photos, they are just too cute.
Hey Grandma, the dress fits, it's just a little long but it's great! I think the wand will get more mileage than the dress though! :)

More big machines

How lucky can you get! Cheap entertainment at its best!

Fun at the airport

Daddy got to go on a plane recently... the kids loved the planes! Watching the plane take off was fantastic!

Big machines!

Friends and big diggers!

View from up here!

Nothing beats the entertainment value of big machines and construction! We've had a lot of it this year! Woohoo!

Our boys...

Only three weeks apart in age - they get along quite well. Here are Aidan and Zach (aka Zoodle) having a great time together.

Summer Bliss...

Carefree, warm, and play play play! I guess we all get to re-live our childhoods through our kids. What a terrific gift.

You guys are too funny!

Kids will be kids and wreck the couch, or make "nests" out of any and all blankets they can find!

Bakers Assistant

Aidan likes to be in the middle of things in the kitchen. Here he is helping with clean up or was it taste testing? The thing is I cant remember what the heck it was I made, only that is was really good... if I remember I'l update it.

What a cheeky little boy huh?

A boy and his bear...

Thanks to Auntie Eden, Aidan now has a new friend in Howey the Bear. Howey was built at the Teddy Bear Workshop. He is quite soft and cuddly. He sleeps in Aidans crib and gets his share of hugs!
