Just when I thought they couldn't get any cuter... :-)

It was time for Nathaniel, Emily, and I to have a check up with the eye doctor. Since we have insurance for the whole family, I decided to have Andrew and Daniel checked as well. I'm so glad I did! Andrew has a lazy eye (on the right--I couldn't even tell) and everything is fuzzy through it. He definitely needed glasses. Daniel has astigmatism in both eyes, so he needed glasses, too. Emily was the most excited about getting glasses, and she needed them the least. She had them picked out before she even knew she needed them. Nathaniel just needed a stronger prescription; he's been wearing glasses for a couple of years.
Don't they look cute?

Visit with the Mays--Labor Day Weekend

Michael's parents came for a visit recently. They were here from Wednesday (the 1st) to Tuesday (the 7th). We had a fun time.

Here is Daniel cuddling with Grandpa

One highlight for the kids (and me!) was that Grandma took us to see Toy Story 3. The men stayed home to watch football and take care of Jonathan. Daniel really liked the movie. He had to hold Woody and Buzz!

Here is Andrew looking cute!

My boys!

Back to school after the long weekend

"Daniel, He's the Cheeky One"

The title is a Thomas the Tank Engine reference. Daniel loves it when I sing this line to him, because he wants to be Thomas. He still gets mad if he overhears me tell someone that he is 3. "No, Mommy, I'm #1 like Thomas!"

I was trying to get dinner on the table, and Daniel came to me with a box of Froot Loops and a bowl and asked me to pour him some. I said "no," so he went to Daddy.

Daniel: "Daddy, can I have some Froot Loops?"
Michael: "What did Mommy say?"
Daniel: "Mommy says no."
Michael: "Then Daddy says no, too."

Daniel: "Nathaniel, can I have some Froot Loops?"
Nathaniel: "No."

Daniel: "Emily, can I have some Froot Loops?"
Emily: "No."

So, here is his solution. :-)

I'm grateful that everyone backed me up on this one. He didn't even bother to ask Andrew, which is funny because Andrew might have said "yes."
