Ryan giving Santa a hug and telling him what he wants for Christmas.  

Toilet Paper

Lenny toilet papered the bathroom last night, dyed the water blue, and put goldfish in the water to watch them swim.  He used a whole roll of paper and decided to wear the tube.  This is one crazy elf!

I think Lenny has a girlfriend.  We caught Lenny and Jessie riding on Ty-Long, Ethan's dinosaur.  Buzz and Woody must not have liked that too much.  Woody got gobbled up by Ty-Long and Buzz shot Ty with his lazer.

Toy Story Fun

I have to be careful what I say about Lenny on Instagram because I have some younger followers.   This one was all Scott.  I wasn't feeling good and went to bed early.  This is what I woke up to and what Scott says is going on.  

Lenny and his friends from Toy Story were up all night playing.  Buzz is on the table saying, "Jump, I will catch you!" Looks like they had a lot of fun last night.

Lenny left us a countdown to Christmas written on toilet paper.  He must have known Ryan was driving me nuts asking if it was Christmas yet.  

Sunday, December 15, 2013


Lenny came back.  This time he set up the nativity scene because he knows Jesus is the reason for the season.

Lenny took some blocks that my mom painted that said Merry Christmas and rearranged them to say, Lenny is Awesome.  He also drew mustaches and beards on Olivia, Ethan, & Ryan's pictures.  He was a so relaxed after that marshmallow bath that he decided to be a little naughty.  

Bath Time

Ryan caught Lenny taking a bath in a bowl of marshmallows.   He says, "Boy, Lenny is weird!" As he laughs.

First day of School

 First day of school for Olivia and Ethan!
As you can see, Ethan still wears Scarlet and Gray almost everyday.  He wants the teachers to know on the first day where his loyalty lies.  
 Waiting for the bus with Spencer, the neighbor.
Ryan's first day of pre-school.  He insisted on wearing a hat.  He never wears hats.  He also refused to let me take his picture.  This is the best I got.  
He loved the first day.
The 2nd day he said his belly hurt and pretended to gag.  He still went to school.
3rd day he pretended to have the hiccups.  He still went to school. 
The 4th day he said he had the sneezes and pretended to sneeze all over the house.  He still went to school and I danced the whole 12 hours I was free of all kids the whole week.
