Last night, for the first time, both babies slept through the night! Reece and I had a little argument before he went to sleep about how Daddy wasn’t carrying him around enough. Mr. Grumpy Pants turned into Mr Temper Tantrum pajamas, and Daddy wasn’t putting up with that either. If he was going to howl and wail like someone had just stolen his lolly pop (or maybe his kidneys), then he was… Read More

If you have read the Purple is a Fruit blog at all, you know that a really fun game to play with kids is to hang them upside down by their feet and yell “POSSSUUMM!”. The key thing to remember is that there are times when you shouldn’t do it. Immediately after they suck down a belly full of milk, and you have them suspended over your face, and your wife is… Read More

Reece will eat just about anything… fast. Sometimes eating is more about art… as in Sweet Potato face painting Lorelai likes gourmet food better. Is that Grey Poupon, Why yes, it is Grey Poupon!

As soon as I win a 4 suite game (without… Read More

Everything from sparkler’s to 1/4 sticks of TNT goes up in smoke. All… Read More

It’s been wildly crazy the last couple of weeks. Lisa’s brother Mark, his wife Judy, and their daughters Allison (8) and Amy (11 months) stayed with us for a bit last week while Mark and I attended one of the Lisa’s family traditions, Nerdfest, in Ephrata. Lisa’s mother Marcia came out to help with the kids here while I was gone, but I only lasted about 9 hours at Nerdfest before I… Read More

Since we’re heading out to Eastern Washington this weekend, we thought it would be a good idea to get the kids sunglasses. Of course, we had to test whther or not they would stand having them on their heads. As you can see, no problemo.
