Crazy VA Weather...

In Michigan everyone says " if you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes..." We have discovered this to be true everywhere that we have lived, including VA.

This last week has definitely been a reflection of that. We had 4 inches of snow and then almost 80 degrees within 4 days of each other! (So maybe a little more than 5 minutes!)

The good thing is that when you are a kid, this is the best week of your life!
The boys had to rush outside to play in the snow as soon as they woke up. We knew that the snow wouldn't last long! But it did last long enough for them to have a snowball fight and come in crying about cold hands! (This was on a Monday Morning)

  The following Thursday, we were all at the zoo. This was the nicest day all year! It was awesome!

Bastian Quotes!

Here are a few of Bastian's Awesome Quotes that we have heard and written down. For every one we remember there are about 200 that we crack up at and forget to write down!

"Mom, girls are so whiney! Boys are calm, calm, calm!"

"We can't turn right and then right again! This GPS is a piece of junk!"

"Boys don't dance, girls dance... boys ROCK!"

"Mom, my tummy is hurting, I am pretty sure that my brain is sending messages that my tummy is too full!"

Bas- "Mom, can I have a permanent marker?"
Mommy- "Nope"
Bas- "I wanted to draw a skull on my dogs shirt so that everyone will know that she is a ROCKER!"

"Mom, we should change Mercury's name to Leprosy... I mean Cheetah!"

I really can't wait to hear the crazy things that Gabriel will come up with! Our kids are so cool!

Post Baby Family Visit #3 Mockbee Edition

We've learned that the only way to get Jamey and Cameron to come visit is to have a baby!

When she finally gets here we all have so much fun that it makes us wonder why we don't get together more often. Bastian and Cameron have so much fun together and are really a lot alike so it makes sense that they "click"

 The first day of the visit we all went bowling! In 2 hours we were not able to finish 2 full games! I guess this is what happens when you bowl with little ones! 

Bastian has taken to striking a crazy pose for the camera! His goal is to ensure that we never take a good shot for our Christmas card!

What visit would be complete without wrestling with Tony? Look close at these ones- there are some nice action shots!

Right before they left we snapped a few group photos. Why is Bastian in the pumpkin costume, you ask...? Because he had just taken off the Pirate costume and the pumpkin was the next logical step!

Not only was this trip fun but also relaxing! The boys played together and I talked to Jamey while she cleaned my house! She is pretty much the only person I would let clean for me... but it was sooo nice to not worry about the dishes all weekend! What a blessing!
We were super sad to see them go, but hopefully we will be getting together again in the spring!
