Loving this weather!

As I write this my two boys are outside playing in the sandbox that their grandmother got for them.  We, and they, are really enjoying this wonderful fall weather in Arizona.  It took a long while to get here but it was worth the wait!  Last night we were out and about in old town scottsdale and it was actually a bit chilly.  Today we put up halloween decorations, cleaned out the car… and the garage, all outside in this lovely weather!

Caterpillar attack dogs!

The dogs were going nuts in the back yard this morning barking at the
ground. Leann went out to investigate and found this little guy in
the rocks! Now we know we are safe from any caterpillars sneaking up
on us!

are these two brothers??

Goodness these guys sure do look alike.  On the right is a picture of Kalvin at 17 months after his first haircut last night.  On the left is a picture of Ethan in January of 2009 at 15 months.  It's crazy how much these two look alike.

Kalvin had his first haircut tonight…

He did fantastic with the clippers…. even though he’s not really all that interested in TV the iPhone and his good nature did the trick!

My incredible grandmother and her Birthday song…

I got the annual birthday call from my incredible grandmother tonight. Each year she calls me on my birthday and sings happy birthday to me while playing the piano or organ, this year she mixed it up a bit by adding in a flute player. Thanks Grandma, you made my day!

You’re beautiful mom! [manipulation]

So, this just went down at the Cork dinner table:

Ethan (after drinking 2 glasses of apple juice and not touching his dinner): “Can I have some more apple juice please?”

Me: “Not until after you eat your sandwich.”

Ethan (Moments later while stroking Leann’s hair): “You’re beautiful mom!”

Leann: “Awww, you’re so sweet, thank you!”

Ethan (without skipping a beat): “Mom, can I have some more apple juice please?”

Overheard at breakfast:

Ethan (totally out of the blue): “Mom, you’re beautiful… And
magical, and marvelous!”
