Busy Sebastian

Scene. 8pm in the house. Boys are "watching" Nick Jr in our room- their pre bed ritual. Eddie and I are watching the Science channel- Dinosaurs. All is good. My mami radar goes off.
"Sebastian, what are you doing?"
I hear him jump and chuckle. Not a good sign. I get up to investigste and make it halfway down the hall when I see dark wine on his leg and smell the tall tell sign of nail polish. OH NO! He climbed up on to my dresser and took my nail polish bottle! This was placed ontop of my tall jewelry box.
"Eddie, come here now!" as I run for my camera. Yes I am upset but am having to hold back laughter at the sight of this proud boy- he has painted his toe nails. I must document.
It is not until I enter my room and see that he not only got into my nail polish, he has dumped out everything from my jewelry box! OH NO YOU DIDN'T!
Just breath!
Snap some shots and proceed in making sure not an item is missing from the mound of jewelry. On to bathing Sebastian in acetone to remove polish from toes, hands, legs and belly.
in mid jump- see how proud he is?
 in this angle you can see a little of his hands, did not notice hands till I start removing it!

What's on the TV?

We are! With this empty box of diapers the boys decided they were a TV. The program of choice, you ask? The Backyardagains!

The last week of August provided a very geologically busy week for us. Starting the week with an earthquake. Yes I understand that in the grand scheme of earthquakes it was nothing big, but we are not supposed to have earthquakes. We are on the east coast. No mental preparedness for such things. I was in the backyard, the boys were in the house napping. This mama did not like the feeling of being separated from my boys... We were only 39 miles from the epicenter. I thank God we have a strong house. Our earthquake damage consisted of a fallen clock and a handful of wall mounted pictures gone crooked.

Then we had a couple of days rest when we got a double whammy. Sever thunder storms that took our power on Thursday night followed by Hurricane Irene. Once again I am very thankful that the effects of Irene were minimal and that Gods protection and provision were over us... but my nerves had not totally recovered from the "quake". On Saturday, after we hunkered down the fort, we went to Aunt Kimmie's and Uncle Bill's. Our house does not have a basement... tornadoes had been spawned with this storm. Our house lost power at 1pm on Saturday.  We were gone:) At our storm refuge, we lost power at 10pm. Thank God for generators:) Pretty early on Sunday the power returned. So we packed up and headed back home only to find that our house was still powerless. That's alright. We had good weather and a generator. We remained powerless till Monday mid afternoon.

As for my picture taking during the storm, sadly the brunt of it happened when it was dark. Here are some cute pictures of kids with DS's in hand being quiet. This was Sebastian's first time playing  a video game. I am not ready for that!
