Update on the Kiddos

Wearing a little mascara they applied themselves.

Watching a show

One morning last week the kids were coloring while I checked my email and things got too quiet.  When they heard me coming in to check on them they hid and I was so worried one of my walls was going to be completely ruined.  Instead I found them buck naked coloring their whole bodies with washable marker.  Pretty typical.
Last night my poor babies were sick.  Jonah threw up about every 20 minutes for about five hours straight.  He woke up at 6:00 this morning (more than an hour earlier than usual) telling me he was hungry.

Jonah's Favorites
word: stupid, idiot (both not words we use at our house so I assume they came from friends)
food: ice-cream, oatmeal, anything chocolate, fruit
activity: dancing in the dark, jumping on furniture, helping in the kitchen
show: he likes pretty much all cartoons and also loves Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (old version) and MythBusters
friend: Vivian, Corrine, Ellie 
For several days, when Jonah would wake up in the morning he would ask, "Is it Halloween-time?"  He's very excited about going trick-or-treating and even remembers going last year.  Now it's usually when it gets dark in the evening that he asks if it's time to go trick-or-treating.  He wanted to be a witch or a cat but I got him the greatest Frankenstein costume and he's pretty happy with it.
He is such a talker, especially at bedtime when he'll tell you all about what he is planning on dreaming about that night or in the morning when he'll recount his dreams.

Elora's Favorites
word: "stupit",  "peep" (this week she stopped saying pee pee and now says peep instead, go figure)
food: cooked vegetables, chocolate, suckers, noodles  
activity: holding chickens, jumping on furniture, 
show: The Nightmare Before Christmas & Willy Wonka
phrase: "like a same" (she likes finding things that match or are similar), "like me does" (Such as, "You got pink toes like me does!")
book: Yes Yes No No
clothes: her yellow "swimsoup" (which has finally been put away for the season) and her pink tutu (which goes over anything but she prefers to wear it on its own;)

After swallowing gum three times in one week, Elora has been banned from gum until she is three.  She now asks for it about five times a day.
Just like last year, Elora loves all things Halloween, especially skeletons and spiders.

I am so glad that I get to be a stay-at-home mom.  I feel so blessed to have perfect, healthy, smart, wonderful, rambunctious children.  I like working two days a week and I like the extra money, but when I come home and know I have to put my kids to bed in two or three hours I'm pretty sad that someone else got to spend all day with them.

I love love LOVE when you post about their "favorites"! Its so fun to learn all about their new, cute quirks. I think Elora might need to be a ballerina what with her obsession with tutu's and all :) Also, I'm excited to see their halloween costumes! they were so cute last year.
