Dillon almost burned the house down....

The accused His ammo
Scene of the crime.
Nope, not kidding. Apparently the little balls from Guatemala aren't flame retardant. This morning I turned the light on, got the girls ready for school and we all went down to the bus. When we came back we (Darr) could smell something burning. Then we noticed the smoke coming out of the top of the lamp. Apparently Dillon threw the ball in the lamp and I couldn't see it when I turned it on. Tragedy avoided.
This was a bit of a "flashback" for me. When my brother, Ben, was 2 he caught my parents bed on fire with a reading lamp. The similarities are frightening.

All clean!

A few of you out there know of Dillon's bath "problem". It is a REALLY, REALLY GROSS problem. Because of his "gross problem" he normally gets a very, very short bath. If not it results in bleaching the tub before the girls have to each take a bath (I'm not talking pee either). Tonight I knew that the "gross problem" probably wouldn't happen, so I took some pictures. (Mainly to embarrass him with in the future :) Hannah helped with photography.
*****Scroll down to see our Circus pictures*****

The Circus....

Man on tiny bike riding through fire.
Dillon (being still) and Darr.
Chloe and the "nose".
Dillon and the "nose" that lights up.
Ida and the "nose" and elephant and Gramie.
Hannah didn't want to wear the "nose".

Chloe on the way to the circus. Actually it could be anywhere. She falls asleep like this within minutes of being in the car.
Dillon usually only falls asleep at nap time, which it was.
Hannah NEVER falls asleep.
Gramie, Grampie and Dillon watching the show.

We spent Sunday afternoon at the circus, even though Dillon called it a birthday party. He says that so clear. I'm not sure where that came from because he hasn't been to one in a while. The kids loved, loved, loved it. They were so happy about the circus. Dillon spent his time going between me, Darr and Grampie. (And dancing of course).

FFF-Silly Smiles...

He has so many "silly smiles" so I stuck with the most recent.
Not sure what Chloe was thinking!
Hannah with her boomerang camping.

Oh, by the way I fixed my "picture problem". I can once again see my pictures before I post them :)

Apple Picking....

On Saturday me and Meme loaded up and went apple picking. The kids loved it. Dillon spent a lot of time with other families as he will "join in" with anyone. He is so social!

HOPING Dillon will stop throwing the ball at the dog so he doesn't have to pretend to like getting hit with it....

HOPING Hannah won't throw up, as she did on the way to the Great Escape (carsick)

HOPING I will never see this for real....

HOPING I'm ready for this when it does happen....

One final note. What is going on with blogger?? My pictures are all "coded". I don't see them until I post them. Any Bloggers know why? Thanks
