Noteworthy Events of the Taylor Household...

A few highlights of the months past- in my quest to catch up... :)

Zach learns to take a picture (somewhat...)!
I was hesitant (to say the least!) to hand my Konica over to wild child #2, but he kept begging... and I was curious to see if he could figure it out... so I gave him the camera. He must have taken 30 pictures- mostly of nothing- but he finally figured out that he had to look at the camera (not the real world) then his pictures started getting pretty good! I know what he's getting this b-day!

Mari learns to entertain!!
She's been working at this for some time now, and quite good at it (in my humble opinion!); however, today everything was right on! She was singing "Jesus, Jesus, Jesus. There's just something about that name..." and she struck the piano (NOT the correct keys, of course!) each time she sang a word. She went through the whole song and it was beautiful! I caught some of it on video, but... have no idea how to upload it. :( My next obstacle to figure out.

Mari (finally) learns to ride her bike!! YAY!
She and Zach received bikes for their birthday (9/26/06) from Maw Maw & Paw Paw. It took Zach all of 2 minutes to figure that thing out, but Mari... She's easily frustrated. Everytime she'd get it going, she would inadvertently pedal backwards and put the brakes on! After a couple times, she would get off and knock it down. On this day, however, she figured it out!!
I'm so proud of you, Mari, for not giving up!

Zach learns to mop the floor!
Of course, this little helper only works with the swiffer and only because he likes to push the button and use up a whole bottle of cleaner in one day... but, other than that he's a big help! He was so amazed to see a dirty spot on the floor, swipe it a time or two, and voila! NO SPOT! He went around the whole house looking for spots he could clean (until the batteries ran down!).

Well... You just can't put words on a picture like this! :)
Zach's riding his bike through the kitchen (butt naked... obviously!) and decides he needs to make a phone call. So he pulls at the cord until the receiver drops, punches a few buttons and the conversation went something like this: "Uh, uh, Hi Maw Maw. This is Zachy. I'm riding my bike. Can you bring me some Maw Maw Macaronis. Uh, OK. Love you, Bye!" Then he proceeds zooming through the house. PRICELESS!
