Little Grinners

Thunderer is starting to get teeth!

Sharing a beautiful smile with us and two little new teeth is starting to become a common sight.

Thundering Nutella Raider

Newbie loves nutella. It’s one of her staples.

We have found, fortunately, that Thunderer is not allergic.

She just managed to find a spoon that Newbie had set aside and thought she’d see what the big deal was about.

She approved greatly.


Highchair Baby

Another one of the legacy items we recently inherited was this high chair that my Uncle Mike used when he was a little one.

She’s not one for being sealed anywhere for long, but she did seem to appreciate it.

I think at this point Little Miss has inherited it and uses it for her dolls instead. Also a good use of the high chair. 😀


Warranty Winning

This summer our washer died. Fortunately, it was replaced relatively quickly through our warranty.

Sure the cost of the warranty probably pays for it over time… but I think we come out ahead given that before this replacement we had visits from the repair team at Sears a few times before they finally decided to put our old one out to pasture.

This is the upgraded model. Basically the version, had we been buying a washer today, that we would have gotten compared to our old one.

Quite awesome.


Music Runs in the Blood

As I mentioned before, Redflare and I met through piano lessons. After Redflare’s parents visited this summer they brought the trumpet and flute because Little Miss wasn’t quite sure what she wanted to start playing in school band (she’s settled on he flute for now.)

The clarinets there on the floor are mine and TJ’s.

We like filling the house with music when we can, either sounds we generate ourselves or play from iTunes and our wide library.


Throwback Thursday Merry Christmas Edition

Since Christmas is on a Thursday this year I thought it was only appropriate to share some fun pictures from Christmases of the past.

In 2008, for instance, there were only three of them.

Wow. Look at Little Miss there and then surf through the site looking at Newbie now. Nope, not sisters at all.

A year later the mischief would grow.

Though Superman’s hair would not. :p
