a tale of two weekends.

Saturday brought this...



...weather nice enough to actually be outside. It turns out that Brandon's legs have gotten longer since summer, and he can finally comfortably reach the pedals.


Jaden's tractor still had some charge left from the Fall, and he put it in fast speed the moment his foot hit the pedal. It's so fun to watch them grow from season to season.


Brandon found Jaden's fishing pole and requested his own for his upcoming birthday. He's quickly getting the hang of casting and realing it back in. I see a lot of fishing days in our boys' future... which might mean more time for shopping and reading for Mommy??




And Jaden no longer shoots baskets granny style. He's actually getting pretty good at this...





...and then there was Sunday. It was FREEZING.


...and poor Brandon could do nothing but lay around all day long with the stomach flu. He threw up only once, but definitely was not himself and ended up coming down with a slight fever by late afternoon. Little Lucy was the only one who could get a smile out of him...



Weekend highlights included serious potty training success, play-doh, Panther domination with a 30 point win and chicken tortilla soup on Sunday night. A big week ahead. Someone is turning FIVE...
