Ag Fest - Year 2

We did this last year too.

We have 2 flavors of kid. We have the "doer" and the "observer" - the "no fear" and the "slow to warm up" - the "extrovert" and "introvert." See if you can figure out which is which.

Constructing a "dirt baby"
Which will, in theory, turn out like this eventually:

GAAHHH! Nightmare fuel!
Thank you, yes, everyone loves an aggressive clown.

Sword vs. Flower. Sword lost.
Pointing out the marked queen:

What they were watching (he did it almost all in once piece!):
Daphne's favorite part

Daphne's Door Signs

Scene: After dinner. Rosie's gone to the gym. The kids are playing in the living room while Pete tries to squeeze in a bit of MBA homework after a long day at work.

Daphne: Daddy, I'd like to make a sign for my door.
Pete: (looking at computer screen) Sure, sweetie, go ahead.
Daphne: Daddy, can I use this pen?
Pete: (looking at computer screen) Sure, baby.

Everyone goes about his/her business for several minutes. Upstairs for bath time, Daphne is eager to show her daddy the door signs she made.

With a Sharpie.

Authorized by Daddy.

(For the record, I don't share a room with James. "James just needs Mommy's help more")

Forgotten Snow Pics

These pictures got lost in my photo files as I was opening a new folder for 2010. It snowed in Portland a couple days before the new year, and Daphne got a chance to play a little bit.

Later that evening we took James out. You can see how this went for him...

about 10 seconds of this...
