once upon a time there was a girl wolf
and she wasn't very nice
really not nice
and then something else happened
umm... let's go to the fourth chapter
and that's the end!!
(I didn't have the heart to tell her she wasn't reading a chapter book, she had instead picked the french/english dictionary... )

At 6:30pm this evening, the curtain was drawn on the "fighting show."
One brave warrior knight
an epic battle ensued
The evil wolf then transformed into a witch
The knight was not afriad
Maybe he should have been...
etc. etc. more slow-motion fighting until bathtime
The winner was mommy and daddy, who got into the show for free and then somehow convinced both actors to pick up their costumes before bath.
Hey, I got a new camera. Now I can take photos like this.
Of course, I have no photo editing skills so I don't yet know how to digitally wipe her nose, but here's hoping I'll learn.
Noah helped me practice with my field of focus
Noah's in focus!
Oops where'd he go
Ok there he is again
Brace yourself for a lot of this. Hopefully it will at least be better than no posts at all. :)

From the "holy cow, when did you learn to do THAT?!" department. I present to you Noah's drawing of a hospital:
Some features of note: "H" sign, ambulance with bumper and flashing lights, doctor wearing a surgical mask pushing a gurney, a helicopter complete with windows and seats, decorative rocks in front of the building, and the fact that the helicopter and ambulance compositionally extend off the page.
Wasn't it just last week he started drawing stick figures?

And just like that, all of a sudden (i.e. today) she's drawing figures.
(The tall figure on the right is Dorothy, the short one on the left with the four legs and the tail is Todo)
(Wow. It seems so far away from the scribbles she was drawing yesterday)

I came upstairs this morning to find them both working at the easel.
Apparently they are drawing the world'a largest longest squiggliest noodles.
My favorite part is how they draw for a bit, then stop and discuss what colors each should use next, then get back to drawing. Pretty cute stuff.

Hey, look at our new kitchen!!
Pretty sweet, huh?
With appliances made during this century and everything.
And, in my opinion, the world's coolest dining room chandelier.
(Also pictured: salt dough menorahs, drying in anticipation of being painted tomorrow)
Just in case you forgot, this is what we had before:
Life is good :)

Noah and Eva and I had a great afternoon at the Boston Museum of Science. Turns out it is WAY better to go at 3pm on a Saturday than 10am when every tourist in New England is there.
Chillin with Kinetic Sculpture
Chillin with T-rex
Groovin with multi-colored shadows
AAAAAAAAH MY HEAD IS GIGANTIC
Better take a rest and go home in the space capsule

We went to Mema and Oompa's house last weekend for Cassidy and Christian's birthday party. First, Eva established the security of her space ship by using a the water gun to shoot at the lava.
I can't decide if this picture is adorable or deeply disturbing
Then Maggie the Clown arrived and thrilled the kids with face painting, magic and juggling
And balloon hats and swords
I'm not sure how true to character these accessories are, but they sure are awesome
I have a doggie on my hat!!
It was colorful and hilarious and awesome
And then we went inside and had cake and ice cream, and as usually happens at these events Eva remained dedicated to her ice cream long after the other kids had gone outside and the grown-ups had started to clean up.
She knows what she likes, ok?
