I took these photos while Shaune was calling the kids to dinner this evening. They were allowed to eat up in their tree fort. Home made chicken nuggets, fruit salad and rice.
Naveen had to be called (ahem, threatened) a few times before he finally made it up to his meal.
Shaune made us grilled chicken, roasted tomatoes and beets on top of sautéed peppers, onions, and mushrooms. In my wild fantasies, the kids would be eating this too.
Ten minutes after this picture, Deaglan fell while swinging from this wooden beam Naveen is hanging from, bringing himself and the beam crashing to the ground. He's now laying on the couch with an ice pack to the back of his head. Huge goose egg.
Naveen helped mow the lawn yesterday morning. Lawnmowers, like vacuum cleaners hold a very special place in this guy's heart.
Deaglan's favourite kind of smile these days - the creepy smile. He sees through my cheap attempts at reverse psychology when I shout "Don't smile!" from behind the camera. For a while it got me the perfect dimply smile. Now I just get this.
This baby cardinal fell out of its nest and luckily the mother nurtured it back to health.
I've practically forgotten about winter.
