No DNA testing required

Ah yes. Fruit of OUR loins? It would seem so. Boy and doughnuts--SURELY that would be the police officer's contribution to Beckett's genetic makeup. And it's painfully obvious that his little fist clutching the dental floss has to be his Momma's influence =)


Yesterday was turkey day! Kurt, myself and the little boys spent the day at Kurt's aunt and uncles (his profession means that SOMEONE has to work on the holidays, this year it's him. My sister always hosts this holiday on my side of the family, but with the drive we'd have to eat our pumpkin pie on the road to get back in time for him to work). For Paxton and Beckett, it was a lot like any other day they got to spend sucking up to Grandpa and Grandma--just in nicer clothes!

I hope everyone who follows my blog had a wonderful day and remember all that they have to be thankful for--I know I did =)

The REAL McCoy this time

After my carppy pics of the "first" snowfall, redemption was in order. This was the scene that was waiting for us Southern Wisconsinites this morning. And so it REALLY begins...

I Sllleeeeeeppping!

Beckett will pull out this line to attempt to get out of anything--including bedtime!!! This was his shot at evading a bath (which he loves)

When the Weather Outside is Frightful...

...Beckett can turn anything into a junglegym. He's been BEGGING to "go in backyard?" for what seems like forever, but it hasn't been nice enough to let him go. So today at Grandma and Grandpa's he turned the dining room table into something to do chin ups on. Looks like he was at it for awhile--look at those red cheeks!

Lunch and Learn

So occasionally myself or another co-worker will bring the makings for a couple of cards to work and have "lunch and learns". I brought the "fixins" for two today and this is one of them. The other wouldn't photograph without a glare, so only one to bore you with =)

An Absolute 180

There was a time, not so long ago, when Paxton absolutely HATED to have his hair cut. I felt SO bad for the stylist who had to face him, there is no way that they were taught to deal with a client like Paxton when they were in cosmetology school--NO WAY. Taking him out of the house for a haircut was likened to taking the dog to the vet for his neutering appointment (if we had a dog--Paxton was enough). It finally got to the point where Kurt bought a kiddie home clipper kit (we could spare the public from the ordeal, and the way he fidgeted during the trim, we could do no worse in the results department!)

His haircut before school started went so well that I was thinking a DNA test was in order to make certain this was really our kid! I'd been hinting for a couple of days that he really needed another trim that was met with "no, I don't need a haircut now". Tonight he was playing cars, stopped suddenly and approached me with "Mom! You need cut my hair now!". No need to tell me twice! He even agreed to cooperate with some pictures for the blog =)

When the Cat's Away...

Paxton will play! It's a good thing Parker doesn't follow my blog, because he'd have a stroke seeing Paxton play with his gameboy. Notice "someone" got out of the house without making his bed.

Not the Ideal Photo Subject!

Grandpa tried to get a few pictures of Beckett on Halloween with part of his costume (from earlier posts, you know it's the one he never wore!) and these were the 3 shots he got off. Sigh...

I voted!

I'll do anything to make it stop! The ad's, the phone calls, the attacks--they all end tonight, right?! I was at the Armory nice and early this morning and a line was stretching down the block. Just as the boob behind me lit up a smokey-treat (when will Wisconsin get on THAT bandwagon?), some workers came out to tell us that lines for District 2 and 4 were inside so I ditched stinky-butt and got in a much shorter line! There were about 15 in line when I got in and probably 50 when I left. I spent my time texting people to remind them to vote =)

Tonight is class, so I will not be glued to the TV all night. I've done what I can, there's nothing left to do but wait for Matt Lauer to give me the results tomorrow morning!
