Derby Cars

Pinewood Derby time!!! This year Pop pop helped Shermie with his car ...
...and Sherman helped Tuffer with his. (Can you say competition?)
Both the boys came up with and drew their own design by themselves. It was fun to watch them get excited about them. They had help cutting it out on the band saw then the rest the did with just supervision. The cars came out great!! They both worked very hard on them.

Shermie's Rocket Car
Love the flames

Tuffer's American Flag Car
I especially like the missiles on the top of it.
The cars are weighed. The wheels on. Good Luck Boys! Now on to the derby.
(Pop pop and Sherman have a bet loser buys lunch)

Bear Bellies and Walking Lessons

We have a hard time putting Annalyn down to sleep. As soon as you hit the bed with her she starts crying (yeah I know this is probable because we spoil her and we did it to ourselves yadyadyad). So we have come up with a few thing to help us get her down. First we try to swaddle her with a blanket. Then as we put her in the crib we lay her next to a stuffed bear that her brother kindly let us barrow. That way it feels like she is still close to us. We have also found that she is extremely fond of large bellies and will quickly fall asleep when placed on one
(i.e grandpa). Anyway I put Annalyn down for a nap the other day and she rolled herself onto the bears belly. Maybe she figured it would do in a pinch.

Before she was born Nicholas would always tell us how he was going to teach her to walk. Today he was doing just that. He walked her back and forth for about five minutes.

Annalyn was loving it! She thought she was so cool. Got to love those brothers.

Another Chocoholic Is Born

Sherman shared is chocolate milk with Annalyn. She LOVED it and went nuts when he stopped sharing. Which was an open invitation for him to tease her.
This is hilarious!

The Many Faces of Sherman

For the past few months my husband has been attempting to grow a beard. This is what he got.
He does this every so often in an attempt to see if it will ever come in thick. This one is the best one I've seen. Along with it he finds that it does not and he can not stand it to touch his upper lip, so inevitable he decides to shave it off. We were having some fun with it last night.

Say Hello to Side-Burn Sherm


Goatee Sherm


Wyatt Earp


John Travolta


Hitler (scary the resemblance)

Here is the clean shaven Sherman. Back to the beginning. Until the next time he decides to grow a beard. That might take awhile.

Racing Cars

The boys were playing with Tuffer's slot cars the other night. We had a blast. Who new watching little cars go round and round could be so fun.
Here is just a little of the fun.
