Some Highlights

I know you are all sick of seeing the big fat title Grandma's 80th so here is a quick update. I haven't posted since early October so I will just go over the highlights in a nutshell.

McRib came back and Mr. Incredible introduced his kids to his long lost love.

Halloween Happened.

Jack Jack turned 2!

We celebrated Thanksgiving, but didn't take a picture to prove it.

My sister-in-law and I got crazy, I mean crafty, and signed up for the school craft fair.

The kids made it through the first quarter of school. Violet got the Principal's Award and the Top AR Reader Award. Dash got an award and joined the 100 club. We are so proud of both of them. They love school and they are both so smart.

Jack Jack

I know that you hear this everyday so it loses its meaning but I'm going to say it anyway...
My baby is growing up.
and it feels like I had him just yesterday

He is already living up to the notorious terrible twos. There are days where all of us want to pull our hair out because of him, including Violet. But at the same time we can't get enough of him. He is our little comedian. He is smarter than he lets on and he loves getting the whole room laughing.
At this point in his life when he finds something he likes, he obsesses over it. Here are a few things that make up little Jack Jack.
I think his number one obsession has to be BALLS! Any ball. Any where. Any time. He can't get enough. In fact he literally sleeps with his "booka". (that would mean football)

His latest obsession is turning household items into sports equipment.

Then there's The Backyardigans. I don't know where we would be without this wonderful show. He won't watch anything else, but when this is on he is glued to the TV.

He has also found his very own favorite book. It was a library book with a monkey in it that is looking for his mom. When you turn the page and it is not the mom, he goes, "No No No"

After I had returned it to the library I found him wondering around the house looking for the "wonkey." Needless to say he got a copy of his own.

Last but not least, in fact it is right up there with the balls, is his trusty ole sippy cup. It is one of those words he says LOUD and CLEAR and OFTEN. "Iuna CUP" He doesn't want water, or juice, or anything else in it. It has to be milk. aka "hulk"

Mr. Incredible has cloned himself with this one, and unfortunately the clone has taken over as boss of the house.
