Give Me That Egg

It's Tuesday night.  Noah is pretty much potty trained at school.  He has not worn a diaper there in a couple of weeks.  At school he's been great.  At home, not so much.  We say it's potty time, he says it's diaper time!  He fights us like crazy.  So tomorrow night, his teacher is coming over to help.  That should be interesting.  Now if we could get him to sleep at night too...

Last week the boys were grooving during dinner

Back to music class!  2 happy boys.

 Eggs everywhere!

 You want to play with Ms. Marylin's stuff?
 What is she doing?

 This poor house has been through a lot with these two.
 Homework time.

Mika's House

It's Monday night.  Noah just counted to 11!  Maybe he will be our brilliant one?  We noticed recently that the twins sleep head to head.  It's really cute.  Also, Noah wants to be under a blanket now, which is good because it's so cold.  We think we finally locked Eli into his crib so he can't escape anymore.  Pictures to follow.  I guess we need to start considering beds.  It's visitation week at Aden's school.  We an go and watch as much as we want.  I can't wait to check it out.  I'm really low on pictures so here's a short post.  

Ariel had playdate at Mika's house.  They had a huge troop carrier in their driveway.  I asked Mika's mom what is was doing there.  She said her husband was a 12 year old.  He saw it and had to buy it!
 Then we went food shopping.
 Dipping our pasta in the sauce.
 Ariel working hard on the boys' hair.
That's quite a ponytail Noah.

 Ariel is very Jewish.
 Pick up at school.  

 Cuddles on the sofa.

 Eating is always an adventure.
 They all get so wild before bed.

Nate's Birthday

We are watching the end of the Vikings New Orleans game.  Crazy.  Aden and I went to the Eagles game yesterday.  It was cold but fun.  We are waiting to see who we are going to play next week in the NFC Championship Game.  OMG.  The Vikings just won in the last second.  That was insane!  I guess it's Eagles Vikings next week.  Other then the huge Eagles win it was a pretty sucky weekend.  The twins are very hard these days.  Speaking of the twins...
 Last Sunday we headed to the NAC for Nate's kind of delayed birthday party.  We ran into Aden's 3rd grade teacher.
 Then it was party time.  
 Here comes Sammy.

 Eli was not sure about the giant caterpillar.  
 He stayed far away from it.  Noah went through with Ariel.  They are so much alike.  

 Balance beams.  
 Ariel helped all the little ones.

 There's the birthday boy.
Aden made some big jumps.
 Very good Ariel.
 I'm shocked Nate went in the parachute.  My boys stayed far away.

 Sweet family!
 The boys were so excited about that birthday cake.
 Fun times!

Ariel Alone in Class

Today was ridiculously warm.  I wore a short sleeve shirt and my pasty white legs were exposed!  Tomorrow is going to be warm again then back to the freezer.  Ariel started a new swim class tonight.  It's been a while since she's taken one.  I'm glad she's back in the pool.  

I took almost no pictures last week, so this post will catch us up to last Saturday.  So I'm less than a week behind again!

Ride daddy!
 Ariel takes good care of her brothers.  She reads to them.
 Rubs their back.
 And kisses them.  
 We have to make a decision soon about the twin's cribs.

 So last Thursday the schools were closed for snow.  Friday, Aden's school was still closed but Ariel's and the twin's were open.  Amy needed them out of the house so we took them.  Ariel was the only person in her class when we got there.  Her teacher was hoping nobody would come.  Eventually there were 4.
 Picking up the boys later in the day.
 Noah with Mrs. Maria.
 That was nice you gave mommy a day off!

We stayed in that night.
Peek a boo!

Saturday morning was really cold.  
 I took Ariel to dance and got a glimpse of her recital outfit. (Eva's is on the left)
 The boys had a lazy morning.
 Did mommy see you eating in front of the tv?
 We didn't do much during the day.  The night came quickly.
 Always enjoying their bath.
 Climbing in?
 Have a great weekend!
