Around these parts...

Here are some things we've been up to lately...

John pulled out his old baseball cards and he and Henry have been sorting them and using the baseball field on Henry's felt playhouse to set them up...

John and I got Matt Kemp bobblehead dolls at a Dodger game awhile back. Henry discovered them (I can't believe these escaped my many purges :) and they have quickly become his favorite toy. He sleeps with his Matt doll, brings him into the bathroom to help him brush his teeth and wash his hands, and he just generally likes to have Matt wherever he is...

Matt Kemp has become a very real part of Henry's life. John tells Henry that Matt eats his vegetables...so Henry eats his vegetables. Henry also likes to pray for Matt Kemp before he goes to bed. It's pretty sweet...

Sometimes Henry even likes to share Matt with Charlie...


Last weekend I went to Reedley to can peaches with my friend, Miriam. John watched the boys while I worked. Henry and Maggie had a great time playing together...

I've decided that right now I can be a good mom or a good housekeeper...they are mutually exclusive at this point in my life. I'm choosing to be a good mom, so here's what my laundry pile looks like...

Henry is very much into dressing up in sports gear. In this picture he's wearing the batting helmet he borrowed from Grandma Gail...

The end.

Matt Kemp made me laugh audibly. And I love that the cards can go on the playhouse!

I almost missed Henry in the pile of clothes! You're choosing rightly Katie, proud of you.
