Food for thought

No Bronwyn, your sisters head is NOT cotton candy for you to eat.

Future Profession: IT Worker

Over the course of 25 minutes I caught both of the girls wiggling over to my book on networking to get a head start in their studies for a future job. After the fifth time I snapped a photo as documentary evidence of their chosen future profession.

A new meaning to 'hollow legs'

Derek:Why are you wearing pants to bed?

Melissa: My legs are ice cubicles, that is why. It's a 71 degree igloo in this house.

Derek: But... But..... But... I want snuggles.

Melissa: Fine, grow hollow legs and then I can hide my legs in yours and you can have snuggles and still have warm legs!

Thievery and Mischief

Bronwyn the burglar is practicing the finer points of thievery from her sister. Or maybe she was fed up with pink and wanted something blue.

The girls finally found something they can share. Or maybe they are resorting to baser instincts and trying to send a message that they wish to eat more cow.

A Year of Fighting Pink in Review

On this day last year, I discovered that pink was planning an invasion of my humble abode.  Therefore, I thought I would review the skirmishes that I (Valiant Defender of All Things Blue) have had with them (The Frilly Pink Wimps).

Early on I had foiled my wife's feeble attempt to pinkify this very blue blog. Unfortunately, while I managed to keep my blog pure and unadulterated, what started as a nice green nursery that was neutral to both sides was often and viciously pinkified.

However, in response, I managed to wrest the vile hold that pink has attempted to gain upon my daughters' wardrobe. I repelled the pinkness by choosing outfits that, while still feminine in style, were not pink so as to prove to womenkind that girls can look nice without choosing the Dark Side (aka team pink).  See how nice this looks?

Seriously, at least act like you enjoy the outfits.

At the start of the year pink unveiled a heinous and hideous plot. They attempted to remove the other team blue member from the house through devious and underhanded measures.  My faithful and bravehearted compatriot, Moonbeam (Team Pink named him... that's why he is my best ally... mwhaha) disappeared for almost a month.  But as the song goes, the cat came back to further aid in foiling Team Pink.

Early on I discovered that I would face a second monumental task. I must defend these poor, helpless girls from boys. Thusly I quickly devised a scheme to help filter out any suitors who are unsuitable for these lovely ladies. I hope to start to implement the plan soon, so long as the HOA does not mind. Unfortunately, some boys (ahem Hunter and Frazor) are not so easily deterred.

During the coming year I hope to continue avoiding those crazy people who adhere to the psychotic notion that anything feminine must be slathered in pink. I also plan to continue sumplementing their wardrobes with not only blue outfits but also feminine but not pink outfits. I am considering petitioning our state representatives to remove pink as a color.  Also, I am hoping to procure the following to aid in my suitor defense.

Life on the Dangerous (Blue) Side

Wearing blue and being a risk taker.

I couldn't be more proud  :)

For concerned parents the scissors were taken away from her immediately after the photo was taken and nothing dangerous happened.

Future Profession: Mechanics

I thought I would get a head start in teaching the girls just how you take something apart and put it back together again. They were especially interested as this was there stroller.

One of the girls thought it would be fun to gnaw on the wrench as well.
