Grandpa and Nana visit

December 20th, 2015. (7 years, 6 months old.) by ben

After some present opening… we decorated the tree.  You know – Priorities!

It is finally starting to look pretty good.  Andrew was a big help this year.

We also decorated our traditional gingerbread cookies with Nana.

Nana is very good at this!

Of course it is always fun to read with Grandpa and Nana.

Pumpkin Patch

October 17th, 2015. (7 years, 4 months old.) by ben

Well, it’s that time of year again – off to the pumpkin patch!

Our first patch this year was at Muelrath’s.  They had some cool old tractors to play on.

Andrew like them, too.

And look at this gigantic tire we could climb in!

They also have a pumpkin launcher.  You have to pull really hard on this to make that pumpkin go anywhere.  I know, because I tried a bunch of times!

Of course, we went on a hayride.  Not much hay, though.  Just lots of pumpkins!

Finally, I picked our our pumpkins and it was time wheel our pumpkins to the checkout line.

Doesn’t Andrew do a good job pulling the pumpkin wagon?  We’re all set to carve up our pumpkins for Halloween!

2015 Family Pictures

It’s that time of year again – Family Pictures!

As usual, Jeneanne does a great job and takes lots of great pictures.  And Andrew and I get to have fun at the same time.  Awesome!!!

And… Lunge!

August 7th, 2015. (2 years, 6 months old.) by andrew

Mommy lets me help her with the housework.

Sometimes I really have to throw my weight around to scrub that spot… wait… that’s not under my chair is it?

Gardening with Mommy

May 10th, 2015. (2 years, 3 months old.) by andrew

First, Mommy shows me where to plant the seed.  She always knows where they go.

Then I plant them.

Mommy makes gardening fun and easy.  I can’t wait to eat the stuff we’re going to grow!  Happy Mother’s Day, Mommy!

(Ed. Note: Ben would love it if we could grow baseball plants!)

Reading with Mommy

March 14th, 2015. (2 years, 2 months old.) by andrew

…always makes me feel better.

Family Photos

October 9th, 2014. (6 years, 4 months old.) by ben

Well, it’s that time of year again.  We took some pictures with Jeneanne.  This year I got to keep Andrew from falling off of rocks and into the water while she was taking pictures of us – big job!

Ma and Pa were with us, too, which was a lot of fun.

Harvesting Oranges

December 19th, 2013. (5 years, 6 months old.) by ben

It’s harvest time for the citrus in the backyard.  We got lots of yummy little Mandarin Oranges.

We’ve been eating them for dessert with our apples and pears.  I’m going to miss the grapes until they come back next spring!

Standing with Mommy

May 9th, 2013. (3 months, 4 weeks old.) by andrew

I like to just stand around sometimes. With Mommy, of course. Yeah, that’s right. I’m not even four months old!
