Let me tell ya, he knew he wasn't supposed to be eating that, too. You can tell from the first two pictures how cautious he was when he saw me...but the last picture is what he did when I tried to take it....he laughed and slapped his hands so that I couldn't get it from him. Triston must have thought it was cute to, not to often does he give away popsicles! Needless to say, I let him have the whole dang thing.

I just have to say that is truly is such a pleasure being with Brookeanne and her kids. They are so polite! ...and they listen! ....and they don't fight with each other! Oh, and they can eat ice cream cones without getting it everywhere....look: the cones, their mouths, and hands are clean!
One more thing...check out Snaggle-Tooth! He is so funny. Travis wanted me to document that tonight for the first time he "talked back" to us. He kept going for a light cord that was plugged in and we would tell him "no no" in a stern voice and he would get a little sad face. Then, while with his sad face on, he looked at Travis then to me and yelled some smack! Of course, I thought it was adorable and reinforced this bad behavior by picking him up and laughing at him. He looks weird in this picture, but I thought it was funny. He was laughing and trying to hide, but since he was in a highchair he had nowhere to go!
I am going to put my blog to private-mode on Sunday. Get your e-mails addresses to me by then!

After the one incident in Wal-Mart, they were extremely well-behaved, so I bought them a Scooby-Doo movie. The movie was more for me because with Travis studying all the time and not coming home until late--I just need an hour with no one crying. I guess I should have known when I paid 7.5o for a double feature that it was trouble. This movie was old school Scooby-Doo-one is called 'Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island' and the other is called 'Alien Invasion'. When I say "old school" I mean it's the kind of Scooby-Doo I watched when I was a kid, so the graphics aren't as good as they are now, and the whole culture (if you will) of the characters is just a little different. I remember getting scared of Scooby-Doo when I was little, but in hindsight I just thought I was a kid...but now, after watching a few parts of the Zombie movie, I realized that they really were scary. Travis was home for dinner and watching it with the kids and says, "Um...Jen, come in here a second". There were "real" monsters on the movie! Not people playing monsters to get away with something and then at the end say "If it weren't for those meddling kids, we would've gotten away with it"! This one was about real zombies and some kind of cat people and ghosts. When the gang (as I like to call it) figured out the mystery, the monsters melted into SKELETONS and then to dust and a hole with green vapor swallowed them all up. At the end, a pirate ghost thanked them and the gang went on their way. Travis and I just looked at each other in amazement that a Scooby-Doo cartoon had that much scary imagery. I really need to screen these movies I buy from now on. The boys were scared--they both had wide eyes and didn't say a word. But, of course at the end they wanted to watch it again. I think I'll be putting that one away.

I can't ever seem to get a picture of Triston....he is too busy. If you look closely, you can see the blue kool-aid mustache around Jackson's mouth...thanks to Danielle and Michael--they brought kool-aid bottles for the boys on the 4th.
Finally, my Mom and Dad had a cook-out this weekend. Me and the boys had a lot of fun, but missed Travis immensely....and so did everyone else. (He is busy studying) We got to visit with extended family that we had not got to see yet since we've been back. It was great....here's a few pics:
Geez, that was so long. So tomorrow marks the 2 week countdown to the Bar Exam. Travis is feverishly working--putting in an average of 10-hour days. Keep him in your prayers! For those reading: Have a great week!
