Excuses, excuses…

 
Someone loves their Aunt Sue
Someone loves their Aunt Sue

So, I’d like to apologize to all the Sam and Lily fans out there, both domestically and internationally (and perhaps, extraterrestrially? Hmmm?) Yesterday was their 8 week birthday and I have not posted anything in almost 5 weeks. Honestly, I have no excuses…   well except for that water buffalo incident. Believe me, I don’t believe I should be held liable for the clown shoes but we’ll see what the lawyers say.

 

Anyway… I don’t have any (other) excuses for not showing the world how my children have grown. Except that, frankly…   they have been kicking our asses. Seriously.

 

See how sweet they look here:

Look what we found in the pumpkin patch!
Look what we found in the pumpkin patch!
Someone is really enjoying picking out a pumpkin...
Someone is really enjoying picking out a pumpkin…

Well, okay….   maybe those aren’t the best examples. But, I can’t believe how tough it’s been. I mean, sure…   if we didn’t care about whether they were sitting in a dirty diaper, or if they were fed, or whether they were crying or not, it would be easy.

 

But we do, so really it’s our own fault.  So…   post on the blog, or keep the kids happy? Well…   there’s no choice.  

 

So, in the absence of postings, Sam and Lily celebrated Halloween, and voted for a new president (Just a hint: they didn’t vote for the loser). They also decided between them that perhaps getting up 3 or 4 times a night wasn’t very efficient, so they whittled it down to one (or maybe two). While I’m sure this wasn’t their plan, Mom and Dad could sleep a little easier (both because of the feedings, AND the new president-elect)   

Yes? You in the back...   a question?
Yes? You in the back… a question?

               

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s also evident that the kids’ hidden talents are coming out as they get older:

I see a man...  a man with a bottle...
I see a man… a man with a bottle…
Oh, sure...   someone got shy all of a sudden.
Oh, sure… someone got shy all of a sudden. You should see her juggle.

One thing to note…   I have never had more serious conversations…   and I mean in-depth discussions, about poo, than I have ever had before in my life. Not that I’ve had many conversations about poo (and the ones I did have were pretty superfluous, I’ll admit) but the sheer quality of them recently has left me somewhat amazed. Deep, philosophical, Tao-of-poo type stuff…

 

Anyway, here are more pictures:

    They are so cute! These pictures were worth the wait. Of course, that doesn’t mean you’re allowed to go an additional 5 weeks before posting more. :)

    Hope you guys are getting through okay. I’m thinking of you every day.

    What Amy said!!!! You definitely can’t go 5 weeks again. I can’t get over how they’ve grown. It won’t be long before you get to chase them all over!!!

    Can’t wait to see them at Christmas!!!! They get a visit from the other Aunt Susan!!
