Bob the Builders

When we moved, we had to take down Braden's big giant bed in order to get it out of the house. That was about 5 months ago. We are FINALLY putting it back together, yay! And it was a family event. Here, Sienna is washing off the plethora of dust. RJ showing Sienna how to work the drill.

Braden taking his drilling turn.
And of course, RJ does the bulk of the drilling. What manly men I have!

My First Pack Meeting

So, my new calling is den leader of the Bear cub scouts. I recently had my first pack meeting where I got to sport my hot yellow scout shirt. At first I contemplated various ways in which I could make said shirt a little more attractive. However, Ryan said it was unacceptable because it's a "uniform" and must be worn accordingly. Whatever. So, as you can see, I decided to throw fashion to the wind and embraced my frumpiness. The same night, RJ earned his wolf badge and some arrow points, and Braden, feeling a little left out in the scouting department, made numbers out of paper and glued them to his shirt so he could be a cub scout too.

This is what happens when you leave markers on the floor...

My Little Chubber

Conner has been crawling for about two months now, but has not been interested AT ALL, in sitting up. Now he FINALLY is sitting, but for very short moments! I love these pictures, because you can see his little fat rolls under his shorts!!

Goodbye, Buster Brown

Today we mourn the loss of our beloved pet scorpion, Buster Brown Pinney. We have enjoyed his company for over a year and now we must say goodbye. This loss has been truly tragic for Braden, who loves all creatures very deeply. We discovered poor Buster last night after attempting to feed him. When realty set in that he had truly given up the ghost, Braden cried for an hour, not only for the loss of our dear scorpion, but also for all the dead fish we've had to bid farewell to in the past three years (about 12). He lamented for every one. Tonight we will lay poor Buster Brown to rest and say farewell one last time. Until we meet again.......
