Elf on the Shelf

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 01:51


Santa sent us a really tricky elf this year. He got up to all sorts of mischief including fishing in the toilet, climbing the Christmas tree, and stealing the star. He made a snow angel in sugar on the coffee table, took a bath in Barbie’s bath, wrote a number of nasty letters to Santa and even tried to steal candy from the advent calendar !

Painting Party

Etienne at an impromptu painting party. He started posing for photos with his hand on his head for some strange reason… Odd child, must be something from his mother’s side ?

Girl Friend ( one of so many )

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 21:12

Not only did Etienne start life around girls ( his sister and her friend Chloe and her sister Megan ) but he is now in a class with almost all girls. He has often mentioned that he has 100 girl friends ! Pretty impressive for a guy that is just 3 !

Here he had a play date with one of his best girl friends, Peyton and they built Duplo towers with Lanelle !

Pumpkin Patch w/ Twins

Filed under: Just Everyday,Places Visited — Dad @ 20:59

Lanelle met a mother of twin girls on a walk around the neighborhood and the girls and Etienne have had a couple of play dates. We took the kids to a local pumpkin patch on what turned out to be a really cold and miserable day, but that also meant we had the whole patch to ourselves.

Blame Mothers & Sisters !

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 02:23

Etienne, you don’t know what you are doing…
I blame your mother and your sister for this set of photos !

They are unfortunately too cute not to share, but I have to just shake my head – why ?

Apparently Cezanne and Etienne were playing dress up and in this house we are very low on any real boy dress up stuff just because we had Cezanne and she loved it and Etienne has never really shown much interest, except today, when he had to be part of the game…

Helicopter Halloween

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 02:15


Etienne was finally at an age this year where we could ask him what he might want to be for Halloween and he could actually give us an answer, quite a few actually so we needed to provide some help and guidance. It did help that we ran into a nice collection of choices and of all the stereotypes we found that the “fighter pilot” looks the most unique. Since Etienne loves helicopters we just decided that this was a helicopter pilots costume and so he is now all set !

Blue Sky, Blue Sea

Filed under: Just Everyday,Places Visited — Dad @ 21:47


We took the kids to Sausalito just north of San Francisco so that we could ride the ferry boat that connects Sausalito and San Francisco. It was a clear blue sky day and we all had a great time. Etienne loved the big boat and being outside. Just another fun day out and about !

My sister is crazy, so am I !

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 02:26


Lanelle spend the afternoon playing outside with the kids. She made bubble mix and blew them bubbles. This got them so worked up I think it made them crazy !

Cezanne and Etienne were eventually doing all sorts of martial arts moves – no idea where they got them from or what was going through their little heads… Crazy I tell you. Luckily they are very sweet when they want to be, we’ll keep them despite the craziness…

Traffic Jam

Filed under: Just Everyday — Dad @ 22:06


Lanelle took these while Etienne was playing with all his cars at once. He created a “traffic jam” and then I think the green truck was jumping over all the cars in the traffic jam ??
