Tomorrow is my birthday and today we made applesauce. In honor my birthday pink was utterly sinister and gave me this hideous bowl with the yummy hot applesauce inside. Thankfully, the hideous bowl did not taint the applesauce.

Aeralind: I am chasing brother with a broom

Derek: Not with swords either

Extra appendages

We had the following conversation the other day at the dinner table.

Melissa: Of course it fell on your arm  daughter. It was hanging out of your mouth like a fourth tongue.

Derek: So, where is she hiding the other three.

My Crocodile doesn't Bite (Book of the week)

Books on pets are a good thing as they can broaden the child's horizon's on what is an acceptable pet. It is even better to read books on some of the more obscure pets in case one of them suits their fancy. Sometimes though, they will give you a hint by the book they choose. This was one such case. Guess I better get started on an enclosure for him.

Blue Strikes Back

Not one to shrink down under pressure Sedryn devised a sneaky way to counter-attack against Team Pink. While I was away he decided to be helpful and get his mommy a glass of water. It was only after drinking the first glass that she noticed the sink was not getting turned on and he was using the toilet as his watering hole. While I am happy she is not ill, I am also happy that he has started to strike back against Pinks viciousness.

A Most Heinous Torture

Somewhere in the deep, dark recesses of the minds of those who lead Team Pink they have devised an evil and horrid form of torture for those weaker members of Team Blue. They decided that he needed to toughen so they grabbed the scissors and started chopping with little care to his nerves or his feelings. Here is documentary proof of their latest act of torture when they declared he needed a hair cut.

Ideas on fun

While recently at our children's museum I had a choice between something horrid or something lovely. I could either go suffer in the farm amd subject poor Sedryn top girly things, or we could do something manly. We of course, chose the manly, blue thing to do.

A most horrific assault

It seems that team pink has no qualms about attacking the smallest member of team pink. This time it was not one of the younger members, which is expected, but the eldest member who viciously attacked the smallest member of Team Blue by attacking his toes with pink paint and were actually happy about their assault.
This heinous act must be retaliated against. No pictures to spare your eyes from this atrocity.

Favorite foods

I thought it would be fun to interview my daughters on what their favorite foods are. I Ann kinda concerned on what my wife is feeding them.

Aeralind: chicken, popcorn, carrots, ice cream, and ants.

Bronwyn: ants, avocado,

Our part lizard

Melissa: Honey, what did you just do to the baby?
Derek: I ripped his arms off.
Melissa: Obviously you need to quit ripping his arms off because they keep growing back. He must be part lizard.

We all have a song in our heart that we sing. It has delighted my soul to hear the songs that can bring such excitement and joy to our daughters. Especially as they are so full of truth it could form a small puddle on the floor.

Aeralinds song is about simply giving praise to God and how we can never have enough time to say all we are thankful for.

Bronwyn though her song is a bit different. It is a song the is completely about the Resurrection and Jesus' expected return.

Overall, there is nothing I can be upset about for the songs they have chosen.

Bronwyn: soon Aeralind will be a daddy and I will be a mommy and both our babies will patch out.
