Nate and his new cleaning skill

So my son is such a helper, most days he helps unload the dishwasher and on grocery days he helps me put things away, well things within his reach that is. Last week he made another mess with his Cheez-Its which is not unusual, so I bust out the "dust buster" or mini-vac I believe is what they are now-a-days :) and got to work, well low and behold he decided to take over....take a look at my big helper....

Elissa's Visit

My little (well not so little anymore) 8 almost 9 year old daughter came to visit recently, we had so much fun with her and were very sad to see her go, but she missed her friends and still had school to attend. I'm very excited because she will be coming back in a month or so to spend her summer vacation with us! While she was here we did some fun things, we made cookies, went to see Horton Hears A Who! which by the way for those who haven't seen it you really should, it was an awesome movie, there was the cutest little old lady there by herself laughing hysterically right along with us and I do believe there were more adults than kids in the theater :). We also did some shopping and watched Enchanted more than a few times. She was such a help with Nate, they had a blast chasing each other and dancing around the living room. She was also a huge help with cleaning, she made sure the living room was nice and tidy and she also kept her room very clean, which was soooooo nice! Here are a few pictures of my sweet girl :)

Nate and Lis on the mic

Sorry for the darkness of the video, this is how my children unwind after a long day...they sing with the microphone :)
