Norah: "Sometimes, people can't walk so they ride in a cart."
James: "Oh, their friends push them around?"
Norah: "Yes, and they put him up on a roof and put a hole in it so he could go see Jesus."
James: " And what did Jesus do?"
Norah: "Jesus told him to walk. He wanted to help him."
James: "And did he walk?"
James: "Wow, Jesus is pretty cool! Could I do that?"
Norah: "No. You're not Jesus. Jesus is powerful....like Big Jet...he likes to take things....like Luca."

Despite trucking all of our laundry up to MI on our last two visits and making my children wear clothes until they were REALLY dirty, we still had a big pile waiting for action this weekend. I didn't realize how big until James said, "I know you are busy, but, ummm, I don't have any underwear left. Do you think you could do some laundry?" Oops!
So, here's the pile--post washing, pre-folding! It took me 40 minutes to fold it all!
Do you see Norah in there? She got a kick out of hiding in the warm laundry!
Needless to say, I can't wait until we move to our new home with our OWN laundry machines!

I came across this bizarre scene in the living room this morning. Each Disney princess had removed her shoes (except for Ariel, who doesn't have shoes), and seemed to be doing an exercise of some kind.
When asked, Norah replied, "They're walking like ponies."
Ah, yes, why didn't I think of that?

Chiara: "James, you should have an orange. It has Vitamin C."
Norah: "I like vitamins!"
James: "Well, eat your orange then. Oranges have Vitamin C in them."
Norah: "But I like the vitamins that aren't in food."
Ha! Norah makes us smile!
Luca loves to look in his bin of infant-appropriate toys and pull things out. He also likes to chew on the edge of the bin and scoot himself over to Daddy's toy (the Xbox) and play with the wires. We need to remedy that situation soon, because he can roll pretty much anyway/anywhere he wants to.

The Family Band recently went to MI to visit family, and, while there, we made a visit to the Meijer Gardens, where they had a great train set through some of their indoor gardens. Norah and Ethan loved following the train and trolley around the track. Here they are waiting for the trolley to come back through the tunnel.
