February 2010

Life is never busy in the Land of Boys:

This one thought it would be a good idea to cut his eyebrow in class!

This one had his 1st dentist appointment after we noticed one of his front teeth was "graying" a bit...turned out there was no damage, and as of now actually looks like it has gotten better.

After a discussion about the Ikea ball-pit this one also thought he would try the potty...Um, that only lasted 1 try...apparently an actual trip to Ikea is in order, for him to drool from the outside while his brother plays in the balls (he is DEFINITELY my most stubborn, the little stinker)!

Wrestling - 2010

So having married into a family with a LONG history of wrestling...I knew my days were numbered, especially since Luke helped coached Ballard High School's wrestling team for the 2nd year this year (what is it with wrestling pics and the "swollen neck" stance?). Since he was already over there with practice we decided to have Micah sign up for Seattle Wresting since Christian was already signed up for Basketball. Well of course at Micah's first tourney Christian decided he wanted to wrestle as well. All in all it was a successful year...Micah kinda petered out at the end (wanting to play more on his DS with the other kids during down-time) so we will see if he wants to continue next year, but Christian loved it and really grew a lot. We were exhausted by the end of the season as it entailed a lot of driving and early mornings for us as most of the tournemants were 1-2hours away with weigh-ins at 7am. I think the boys' favorite part was getting to go to breakfast after weigh-ins! Here is a pic of C and M at their final tourney for the season:

C placed 2nd and M placed 4th

Everyone needs "footie" jammies

For atleast over a year Vicki's sister Robyn has wanted a pair of Footie pajamas...but they are a little hard to come by in adult sizes. So we set out to make a pair for Christmas...of course Robyn opened her present on Christmas morning (her and Vicki stayed with us that night)...and found a cut out but not sewn pair of jammies. Here are the end results, and next time I will RUIN the surprise and take measurements first, as these were HUGE when I first got them done (we ended up taking about 2" out of the back center seam and 8" all around). Fun to make and easy to sew...doesn't everyone need a pair of footie jammies! The pattern is KS 3712 :

I even matched the stripes!

Jojo loves his "Robyn-bear"!
