Movie Time!


Even in the middle of home improvements, we have to take a break for fun!  Even if this was a really silly movie.  Both Tad and Rerun were dying to see “Angry Birds 2” and Danny came along with us!

They had a good time!  And the movie wasn’t terrible for adults, either – so I guess I got lucky!

Flashback Friday


Anyone else remember when we first moved Tad and Rerun into a new room of their own?  That was in 2011.

The walls that had been painted periwinkle for Ane were turned into two shades of blue, Tad got his captain’s bed, and we moved them in.

Well, this weekend, almost exactly 8 years later, that room is going to be repainted for Ane once again, now that Tad has moved into his own room and the little boys have a baseball room.  Stay tuned!  This should be the last room we paint this summer!

Happy Birthday, Gichan!


Yes, it was my Dad’s birthday today – and that means cake!

And this is what happens when Auntie orders the cake.

Auntie: “Well, we call him Dad, the kids call him Gichan, so I just went with ‘Old Man.’  And the Avengers.”

A Rug For The Baseball Room!


Since Rerun and Thumper’s new bedroom is baseball themed, it was only fitting that it got a baseball rug.  And Grandma and Gichan ordered one for them (happy anniversary to the Webmaster and me – apparently “rugs and carpets” are the gift when you have been married 19 years).

And this one is really spectacular!

Rerun had been waiting and waiting and WAITING for “his” rug to show up, and he was VERY excited when it did.

And as I knew he would do, he promptly set up his Angry Birds and Bad Piggies to play a baseball game.

The funniest part, though, was when Ane (who is living in the bottom bunk at the moment, waiting for her room to be finished) came to tell me, “Mother, HE SANG THE NATIONAL ANTHEM BEFORE THE BIRDS AND PIGS PLAYED THEIR BASEBALL GAME.”

How can you not love that??
