Emma counting to 100

.. the impatient person's way.

Trimming the tree

December means getting ready for Christmas, so Emma and I set up the whole house this weekend. Mom and Dad helped a little too, I guess.

Getting the tree up is important, but getting Aunt Olga's Christmas village up is even more important. The trick is to remember to leave room for all the different houses.

Emma did a great job leaving a path for the train to wind through the town too. She did keep trying to open the presents in the box cars. 

Not bad for an afternoon's work. I think Santa will be pleased.

Leftover Halloween pranks

Why yes I brushed my teeth the same as always. Why do you ask, Mom?

Crazy children

I know there was an explanation for these, but I can't remember what it was.

Relaxing with Shane

Neither of us can read yet, but the stories are still tons of fun.

Tommy's Jedi training

For Tommy's birthday this year, we went to a Jedi training class. I know, I didn't realize you could learn how to wield the power of the force at the local YMCA either.

Emma and I picked up on the basics of light saber fighting pretty quickly, as you might expect. 

Of course, Tommy and Shane were already master fighters. Shane didn't even need to look where his opponent was to hold his ground. 

We also practiced moving objects with our minds. In the end, I think the explosion of balls had more to do with the parachute moving then our force powers, but you never know.

Too cool for school

Seriously, if I look like I'm already six years old, then why do I have to still hang out in the threes classroom?
