Tattoo Boy

The boys got a bunch of temporary tattoos for Valentine's Day. The big boys enjoy them, and are currently wearing 2 or 3 apiece, but Everett is in LOVE with them. He had on 6 for his doctor's appointment yesterday (a checkup, that was easy as could be), and he came home and put on at least a half dozen more. He looks so cute I of course had to take pictures!

In addition to all the tattoo-wearing, the boys have been busy playing with Spencer's new birthday presents. The first thing to be put together was his lego loader, followed the next day by his castle-building kit. Last night he spent a good hour at the Discovery Store's website trying to decide what to spend his gift certificate. He ultimately decided on a remote control helicopter.

Mike and I have both been called to jury duty, which has prompted lots of questions about what that means and how the system works. Last night I gave them an illustration using Everett as a defendant, the two of them and myself as the jury, Mike as the judge, and our pets as witnesses. It made them laugh, and gave them a good understanding at the same time.
