Vignettes

On Valentine's Day Jensen and Alex woke me up with a surprise.  They brought in a wrapped present!  Now all who know this family's dealing should be well impressed with both those things! And hold onto your hat when I tell you that I had had no idea that Alex had even got me anything, and he had ordered it online, and it got there early!  AND it was the coolest little Coach make-up bag I have ever seen!  Since I use a ratty old bag everyday and leave it in the car he figured I needed a nice one-- especially if I was going to leave my stuff on display for everyone who gets in our car.  Happy Valentine's indeed!
Roswitha watched Jensen so we could go see a movie for the first time since Alex came home.  We saw Taken because that's the only thing that was playing and I had just read that it was good on Sarah Jo's blog.  Very good.  Not very romantic... but very good.  It was such a nice day.  Thank you Al, I love you too.

Here we have our first Family Home Evening fight!  Jence didn't want to stop playing to join us.

I figure it's the first of many times...

Daddy is good at persuasive arts, though.

See- all better.

We got Jence his a little bike.  It was a impulse buy at the grocery store, worth all 11 euros.

He can actually reach the ground on it so he can scoot it around. He loves it.

Washing around the cast... that still gets wet.

The Gibbs's left us a few weeks ago.  It was a sad day- but we'll see them again soon.  This is when they came over to say hasta luego!

The boys. Britt and I were having a no-pictures-please kind of day...

Why always upside-down...?


Inevitable contention...

And Jensen always gets his way...because he will pitch a fit and Tristan won't.

See- all's well that ends well!

i wish you could comment on individual pictures..because i have something to say about ALL of them. so here are the highlights.
number one: alex!! ugh! goooood job!! i am so super proud of our cant-ever-keep-a-little-secret-from-sara man! youre awesome!!
number two: that look while hes sitting on the bike is worth WELL over 11 euro. its completely a "this... (tear rolling down the cheek, tongue click) ...is the BEST, day of my life, mom" everyone, please click on that picture to enlarge that face.
number three: why upsidedown? because they are al and daniel. the real live question is Why does Jensen look so surprised that he is upsidedown?
number four: oh. that face. i have never seen such a fit-pitching (wow, thats hard to say correctly out loud) face on that boy. and tristan is just "whoa, dude jence, here..its not even that big of a deal..you can just have it, man."
number five: when i took a quick look at that "triumphant jensen on his throne" picture, i honestly thought he was doing ballet. you go, girl! get those boys started early!
