Football with Uncle

Manny helping Uncle coach (P.S. it didn't do any good, I think they still lost 12-0).

Does anyone else notice that Manny is almost as big as some of the players (they are so little).

Makenzie did not notice that there was a football game going on, but she loved crawling around on the track.

A Day at the Park

A day at the park with our friend Roman, who says, "Makenzie, I wuv ew". It is probably on of the cutest things ever.

A Blast from the Past

Here are some pictures of Manny and his friends from 2 years ago...can you believe that Manny is 3 years old and has been friends with McKayla and Roman for two years? They started playing together when Manny was a year and a half old. Wow!

Time for a little comparison

Manny Says...

This morning, Manny asked for a cup of milk. I decided to try some cold milk thinking if he will drink it, that will save me the 30 seconds it takes to warm up his milk.

I brought the cup to him at the kitchen table. He took a drink and looked at me with his eyebrows practically growling and said, "Mama, I WANTED warm milk" in this really whiny annoying voice. I just looked at him and less than two seconds later he said,

"Sorry Mama, I used the wrong word. Please may I have some warm milk".

Manny's first day of school

Manny started preschool at The Neighborhood at the beginning of September. He was so excited to start school. He was ready to go at 7:00 in the doesn't start until 8:30.

Manny asked for pancakes and I was trying to think of a way to make them "special first day of school" they became chocolate chip pancakes. He was so surprised.

Even Kenzie had a plain pancake:

One of the very few pictures I was able to get of Manny before he jumped in the car:

And Some More Boston pictures

Manny catching a ride with the koalas:

The Mama giraffe and her baby and me and one of my babies: gross is his tongue?

All three members of the giraffe family: (the baby was born last year)

More pictures from the Boston trip

Here are some more pictures from our trip to Boston. We visited Franklin Park Zoo. We all had a lot of fun and enjoyed the day.

Can you see us?
This lion was laying down very quietly and then all of a sudden he stood up, turned around and roared 6 times. I have to admit, it was a little scary. We all agreed that we felt that the 10 foot wall surrounding the lion wasn't quite high enough.

Visiting Boston

We spent Labor Day Weekend visiting Josh and Kristina in Boston.

Friday night in Copley Square:

Josh and Manny trying to catch a goose

Manny playing on the "Make Way for Ducklings" statues. Yes, he did sit on each duck before we could leave.

Manny Says...

This morning while I was cleaning up the kitchen after breakfast Manny and Makenzie were sitting on the floor playing with Lego's.

Manny was facing one direction and Makenzie was sitting next to him.

I said, "Manny it is really nice of you to share your Lego's and playing with Makenzie".

Manny stopped, looked at me and said, "Makenzie is playing with me, but I'm not playing with her"

Manny Says...

Yesterday Manny, Makenzie and I were eating lunch at the kitchen table. We had turkey sandwiches, apples and carrot sticks.

We were sitting at the table quietly eating when out of nowhere Manny says,

"Mama apples taste like mustard"

I said, "They do?"

Manny replied, "Yes they do, when you dip them in mustard".

Preschool Tomorrow!

Manny and I were talking about his first day of preschool. We were doing the usual-are you excited? What do you think you will go? etc, etc.

Manny then said, "Kenzie will miss me while I am at school and she will be sad. I asked Manny if he will be sad that Kenzie is at home while he is at school, he says,

"Nope. I will be happy and excited because I will be at preschool".

Hopefully we have a smooth transition tomorrow.
