How 'bout some pictures and video?

It's been quite a while since we gave you a chance to see the children. First, I'll offer you a precious video of Lucas and Grace sharing a popsicle. I'll follow it up with some recent still photos.

The one with Lucas wearing a woman's hat is worth the story. We went to Target last night, and I spotted the hat on the dollar rack. I told him to put it on to show his mother. He liked it so much that he decided to continue wearing it throughout the store. We ended up buying it for him, since he considers it a magician's hat. When we were in the toy aisle, looking at Thomas trains, a little girl was wedging her way in to get a look herself. Her dad scolded her, "You can't push that little girl," at which point I had to explain that it was my son wearing a woman's hat. At that moment he was also carrying a pink water bottle of some sort. Hopefully he doesn't develop any kind of identity problem!

Enjoy the following:

A Funny Lucas Story

I thought this one was blog-worthy.

Last night we were having trouble getting Lucas to finish his dinner (as usual). After coaxing him through every bite, Pete and I both decided to leave the table and let him finish on his own. A few minutes later he came out into the living room carrying his empty plate to show me. I said, "Good job, buddy! You finished your dinner!" to which he very nonchalantly replied, "All in a day's work." He's really got a funny personality! There was something else he said today that made us laugh, too. I can't remember what it was, and Pete's not here for me to ask. When I figure it out I'll post it.

Before too long we'll have funny Grace stories to tell as well. For now the cutest things she says are book, more, no, and yeah. Not finding the humor? We'll work on it. She is finally walking, though. Yay, Grace! It's very cute to see her toddling around.
