The musical stylings of Michael Lewis.
All week long he has been singing "Another one bites the dust...tsst...tsst..." over and over again. So I thought I would get it on video to share with PaPa Joe. Of course he did not understand how important a perfect performance would be for my video.
So sister decided to show off her talents too. This is Katelynn's version of LaBamba.

The next night Mike and the kids drew and colored the pattern on the pumpkin and cut it out. Michael posed for me several times. Most of the pictures have half of Katelynn’s head in them. (She was really busy sweeping the small porch we were on, so we were in her way a lot.)
Once she calmed down, I was able to get her to pose briefly by the jack-0-lantern….”CHEESE” with stuff in our mouth.
On Sunday, we took the kids to a fall festival at a church close to the house. Of course it was the hottest day in October so we were all sweaty and were not able to really enjoy all of the games. Michael was Batman including a mask and sister went as “Spider-girl”. Sister and daddy tried to stay in the shade. We were there for an hour. Michael played several games and got candy. We also bought some cotton candy and watched the fluff grow in the bowl and wrap around the stick. Another wonderful weekend...

When Michael was a baby (like a few days old) I took a picture of Mike and Michael on the hammock. I took this picture to show how much he has grown. (And you will see below that he thinks he is almost as big as dad).
Sister was especially whiney this weekend. I figured out why on Monday - fever and vomitting. (We are better now.) It was very clear that she will be our water baby. We were all outside playing in the shop. Mike was watering the back yard and cooking some sausage he made. (it was great)
Sister ran outside and came back in wet. The kids decided they wanted to put on their swimsuits and play basketball. (? - I don't know - I can't follow the logic.)
Overall we had a good weekend. We built a "tent" in Michael's bed with my old Raggedy Ann sheet. We bought a new movie called The Reef (nemo knock-off) that Michael has worn out.

I know he loves me and the kids more than anything.
I know he thinks of us and puts us first always.
I know I love him more that I can express in words.
...There are just too many reasons to list. Mostly because we look so dang cool!
He is the love of my life.....I LOVE HIM!

So, the story goes, when I was about 2, I begged mom to let me ride the coin-operated horse in front of a very busy Houston grocery store at 5 on a Friday afternoon. Mom-as strict as she was-refused. I continued my plea with Dad. (Who was asleep in the couch). He agreed and took me and the video camera. After a few seconds of normal trotting on the majestic horse, a little kick sped it up.....and it went faster and faster. Mom, who was standing by for support, could barely contain herself as she uncontrollably laughed and her only daughter (at the time) getting whip-lash on a crappy coin-operated horse at some old dirty grocery store in the bad part of Houston. (See how the story changes as I try to stick up for my poor self 30 years later). WELL....as you see in the video, Mom was being very supportive of my future equestrian efforts. (I am afraid of horses to this day) I only hope sister can look back and laught at herself as I have....ENJOY!

He is clever. She is funny. He corrects my speech when I say the wrong word. She bites me when she does not get her way. He introdues himself by shakeing hands and sharing his first and last name. She smiles and looks sweet, but growls when someone comments on how pretty she is. He is his father made over. Handsome and caring. She is her mother made over. Ghetto booty and selfish. (hopefully it is just a stage....the selfishness....I think she is stuck with the ghetto booty).
Before you know it, they have grown to two beautiful children and I just adore them. I am blessed.
