I LOVE this idea. I am totally stealing it....so if you see it on my blog, well, you know I ripped it off.

I love these kids. I am the proudest vavo in the world.

Jimmy said...

I love what they love about eachother. This is great!

Boquinha said...

Steal away, Katie! I look forward to reading yours! :)

Mom, I know you do. It's evident.

Isn't that sweet, Jimmy? We're very lucky that they are such good friends. They have their moments, but, by and large, they laugh A LOT.

Vivian said...

Great post. Some things never change, like Menedy, (both) wanting to own restaurants and bald eagles. I love that Thing 2 already has super speed and that they are both good at making friends. We play Settlers of Catan (thanks for introducing us to it) but I've never seen the Seafarer version. We'll have to check it out

This is so cute! I love your kids and their cute relationship with each other. I also love Maxim's "super speed/jumping high" comment. so funny.

J Fo said...

I love getting a glimpse into their minds! So fun. Greg read this before I did (he never comments, sorry) and told me he likes Maxim even more now because he likes Europe! I've seriously made fun of Greg for YEARS for liking them. So funny.

Boquinha said...

Ohhh, the Seafarers version is REALLY fun. So is "Cities and Knights." They are VERY worth trying out!

Emily, thanks. They really are so cute. I can't tell you how often one of them makes the other laugh so hard, the laughing fit sends him or her running to the bathroom. :P He's been full of funny lines lately. Total riot.

Argh, those boys! If it's sports, they'll comment. Anything else, nope. That's funny--Yeah, he has a Europe CD (I think it's Mark's old one) and he loves to listen to it.

I love this post. When I was ten, I wanted to be able to fly, too.
Your children are so sweet! Thanks for sharing.

Boquinha said...

Thanks, Lady. :)
