Thomas LOVES taking pictures. His favorite things to take pictures of are (1) Estella and (2) the light fixture above the table. He is getting better and better at getting his subject in the frame and also at letting the camera focus before he fires the shot.

The weather has been so nice lately. The boys think the hose is the best toy right now. I have a nozzel on it that has different sprays. Their favorite is the "gun" because it sprays hard and far. They love to spray it everywhere.
Thomas really likes to pick flowers for me. I have taught him that the only flower he can pick without permission is a dandelion. Dandelions are never more beautiful than when offered with love from your little one. So sweet!

The second question is much different...What do you make for lunch? I am so sick of peanut butter and jelly or grilled cheese that I could leave those out of my diet for a LONG time and not feel bad about it. My problem is that I want lunch to be EASY and FAST! I have enough of a struggle making dinner every day with three little ones battling for my attention. I don't want to make anything for lunch. At lunch time I feel like I just finished cleaning up breakfast, I don't want to make a mess again. I just want it to magically appear on the table and clean itself up. Does anyone have a magic lunch making spell they could teach me?

After playing for a while in his snakeskin vest, Nicholas wanted a change. He found this "Mommy hair" as I mentioned in the last post. I wasn't aware that my hair was short, curly, or mulitcolored. Thankfully I have Nicholas to open my eyes :)
It is annual "junk pick up" time in Grand Junction. There are piles of junk on the sides of the road all over town waiting for the trash crew to pick up. Jackson rummaged up a few things to make a bike jump with, so he could practice up for his upcoming mountain biking trip with his buddies. The boys thought it was super cool that daddy could go off a jump on his bike.

I am behind on pictures, so I don't have a visual image to go with this story, but I want to tell it before I forget it. Today, Thomas and Nicholas were playing dress-up. Nicholas pulled a bright multicolored clown wig out of the box. He ran up to me saying (in all seriousness), "Look Mommy...hair like yours!" I waited and waited for a grin or a twinkle in the eye to show me he was kidding, but it didn't come...He only repeated his devistating remark. I will post a picture of him wearing "hair like mine" soon :)

Last night Jackson bribed Thomas with an ice cream sandwich to dress in his church shirt, gel his hair, and sit for a photo shoot. I don't have the supplies I want yet, but I was anxious to try, so I used what we had around the house. I was disappointed because a lot of them turned out blurry because it was just too dark, but we got a few that were sharp. This was one of my favorites. It is such a Thomas look :)
