Uncle Mitch and Aunt Katie

  We finally got a chance to go up to Mitch and Katie's new house in San Leandro. It's very cute. It will be perfect for their new little baby boy, Evan, who is due mid 2016! The house has lots of character and unique qualities, which I like in a house. They have big plans for that house with redoing the front and back yard and both bathrooms. They have some really great established trees in their backyard. The backyard it great for energetic dogs like theirs. It was great to go up and have a nice brunch with them. The boys enjoyed playing cards and drawing all the boxes on a piece of graph paper, who knew that could be entertaining. :) With our updated computer software I can't figure out how to get my pictures, so when I figure it out I'll add a picture of our morning here.

Youch! Burned...

   Vander has become quite interested in cooking and enjoys making meals with me. Last night he decided on a meatloaf, green bean, and potato meal. It's all cooked on one sheet pan. I always warn him repeatedly to be careful with hot pans. So far he has come out unscathed, until last night. He leaned his right arm onto the 400 degree sheet pan as he was painting bbq sauce onto the meatloaf. He screamed and cried of course. We ran his arm under cold water and bandanged it up after swabing it with an anti-burn pad." Ow, ow, ow" he repeated every 30 seconds for the next hour. He kept an ice pack on it for an hour or so and took some tylenol. By the time he went to bed he was fine and today he tells me it doesn't even hurt. We just have to keep it out of the sun so that it doesn't scar. I hope he learned his lesson and will be more careful in the future!

Grammy turns 60 and Ollie's math

We went to Morgan Hill to celebrate Theresa's 60th birthday and have a family dinner.
  While we were eating dinner Larry asked how old Oliven's teacher is...I said she is around 38ish. Larry says to Oliven, "If Grammy is 60 and your teacher is 38 how much older is Grammy." As he starts to say, "Nevermind that is too hard." Oliven pipes in, "22!" "How did you figure that out so fast?" Pops asks. Ollie replies, "I just straight up knew." It was so hilarious! Gotta love kids and the things they say.
