Just a sweet picture of Aric cuddling a sick boy on Thanksgiving last year.

His favorite game..

This is Avery playing his favorite game - Pirateer. He likes it so much he's figured out how to play by himself because we can never play it with him enough!

A pair...

Someone who's hair is just as unruly as Curran's!

At the local botanic..

These are pics from the free day at our 'local' botanic gardens. Avery wanted a picture in front of every statue (which we took) but I decided just to post the one where he looks the least like he's choking his brother. The other pic is me in the bamboo forest - a happy place for me.

Birthday rewards...

For those of you who donated to my birthday spoiling fund, here are a couple of the things that I've gotten. The purse has silver studs on the strap too. It's huge compared to my last purse, but it's got major character :) The shirt is darker by a bit than shows in the picture, and has little rutchings at the bottom of the 3/4 sleeves and on the sides of the tummy. I also got a pair of jeans, leather gloves, and desperately needed tights. Thanks!

It begins again

Today the boys both went back to school. I think it'll be a bit of a rough day since they both got used to sleeping until 8am (so did I). Avery was looking forward to going back though, so that got him eventually out of bed to dress.

A couple of days ago I got to shop for beads with money made from a commission (so fun!) and see a hockey game live. It was the Avalanche vs. the Canucks. We lost, but it was still super super fun. Aric said I was fun to watch during the game 'cause I'm so animated :)

Oh, to the left is Curran with his new tiger from the Denver Zoo, Mr. Scrumpletom. This cat now goes almost everywhere with us. The box it was wrapped in came with breathing holes - so cute!
