Family photo

Punctuality has never been a strength of mine. In the past I have said that I was born on my due date and have been late for everything since. (In a related story, Lib and Lucy were also both born on their due dates. Hint, Hint: baby #2, who I currently refer to as Larry (Larry Johnson, aka Grandmama), is due on the 20th of March. Don’t forget to get your guess in on Lib's blog.) With that said here on January 4, 2010, I have decided to post a quick picture of Halloween. Looks for shots from Thanksgiving in April and from Christmas by late summer!??!?!

Lucy dressed as a monkey and has continued to refer to herself as a monkey ever since. Recently Lib told Lucy that she is a real “piece of work” while they were playing and Lucy responded, “No, Lucy a monkey.”

That is me dressed as Spongebob or “Spongy” as he is referred to around our house. We moved into a new house in September and one of our first house projects was to redo a bathroom. I kept the box from the new toilet with turning it into SpongeBob in mind.

In addition to punctual, another thing I am not is an engineer. I am not sure if my first mistake was under estimating the length of the box or over estimating my wingspan. What I am sure about is that I compounded the arm issue by cutting the arm holes roughly 12 inches too high. I have never been so happy that Lucy has the attention span of a two year old. I am happy to report (now that we are over 60 days removed from Halloween) that I have regained most of the feel in my arms from our ten minutes of trick-or-treating.


  1. This post really made me giggle. I'm proud to call you my brother, "Spongy".

    Love you guys,

  2. This is hilarious - totally cracks me up. And I had even seen "Spongy" in person - but I don't believe you were squatting when I saw you later in the night. Tell me you are either kneeling or squatting in this pic, right?!? :) Love it. Glad the feeling in your arms has been restored to pre-Halloween levels.

    Mom told me that Lucers slept in her Christmas dress on Christmas Eve - did you get pics? Can you post? I bet that was SO CUTE.

    What is this that you call new baby "J" either Larry or Grandmama? Please explain further.... ?! Ha! Love you, -- Em
