Three month regurge, Part Deux

Jennah turned three on the 18th of March,we had her birthday at Grandma and Grandpas house, and it was a princessy good time.-3.22.09Jennah let her brother help her open presents, she is a super good sharer. It is possible that this trait will develop in to a trait of mine: oversharing.

Seriously? Would you look at this cake? Totally cute, and Grandma and Grandpa bought it for her. By the way, we saved all the accoutrements for Tiny Baby's birthday.

Ayman ust looked over my shoulder as I was captioning this stuff. He said "Hey! Why am I wearing that on my head?" Why indeed, Ayman? Why indeed. He is learning alot. he can actually identify a the 'pupa' stage of a ladybug life cycle. (the eggs, larvae and adult too!)

I just thought this was a cute picture of Jennah at the playground near Ayman's school.

My Mom and Dad are having a swimming pool installed in their backyard right now, (Yay!) It should be done just in time for summer. They needed some help hauling dirt, and landscaping so they called on Amr. He brought the kids with them and they had the added bonus of child labor as well. They work for fruit snacks and chocolate milk. How cute is Jennah with this farmer look?

Both children were a big help, and worked very hard. And, yes people, we sunblocked them to the bejeebus.

Then came Easter- We went to Alex and Renee's house to rock out with cousin Millie and find some easter eggs.

And, of couse Jennah looked adorable, and found some eggs.

So Jennah found some scarves in my closet, and came to me and said "Make me look like Tetah Lilah" so I did, and she was totally thrilled.

Gramma bought Jennah a Barbie jeep from Craigslist (killer not included!). Jennah always lets Ayman drive it, and he is an excellent driver. (400 Oak Street)

I took Ayman and Jennah to see a vintage locomotive at the train station in Stockton. It is locomotive no. 844, and has been on Union Pacific's roster since 1944. It is based out of Wyoming, and was on its way to Roseville. The children found the train to be loud, and it scared them. I barely got them to stand next to each other really far on the platform so I could take this pic. 4.22.09

I got Ayman to stand on the front of the engine. I took the picture. Then a regular train passed about 20 feet from us, and he and Jennah fell apart. It was the first of several meltdowns that the both of them had that day. In trying to take Ayman to see the trains he loves, I think I may have traumatized him. That night, he asked me not to take him to see "the scary trains" again. then he woke up twice with nightmares. However, he has totally been talking about the train since then, and now he watches videos of the same train on Youtube. Speaking of youtube, check out this 13 second video of the children freaking out. I was trying to take video of the burst of flame on the underworkings of the train. The noise got a little louder and I turned around to find...Well, you'll see.

So that is it, sorry I got lame, I cannot guarantee regular postings but I will keep you up to date.
Ciao for now.
