Favorites age 6 and 2

We just spent two weeks in Texas visiting my parents and brother. We had a great time and while we were there my kids experienced their first tornado warning. We got into the interior hallway of the house and waited to see if we needed to go into the interior bathroom. The tornado missed Coppell, so we ended up just waiting in the hallway until the wind calmed down. The wind did tear up two of the trees at my parents house and messed up my dad's garden. I had told Tyler that if we had to go into the bathroom that we would lay on top of the kids to protect them. He thought that meant that Loralai would be on the bottom then Tyler, me, and Drew on top. So just a couple of days ago we had a lightening storm in GA and Tyler told me that if a tornado comes, he doesn't want Loralai to get hurt, he will lay on the bottom. He said, "I don't care if I get hurt, but if Loralai got hurt I would be really upset" He is such a sweet boy. I assured him we wouldn't squash them.

Here are a list of their current favorites:

Favorite book: A Cuddle for Little Duck, The Princess Book, Mother Goose's Nursery Rhyme Book
Favorite game: baseball with Tyler, kicking soccer ball around
Favorite clothes: pink usually, whatever she decides for the day. Loralai is very picky about what she wears with what shoes and jewelry. She becomes very unhappy if I disagree with her!

Loralai is at an age where she thinks Tyler is the most wonderful person in the world. I know this won't last forever, but it is so cute right now. Today during lunch it had been quite for about 10 seconds which seems like a long time in our family and Loralai looked at Tyler and said, "Tyler you are my best friend and brother". Drew and I were telling her how sweet she was when Tyler said, "My best friend is Kadin". Loralai didn't seem to mind or even get it thankfully!

I'm hoping Loralai's Caillou days will soon be behind us. I am tortured by the fact that I have seen every episode at least a dozen times.

And Tyler loves burritos - he begs us for a big one when we go to places like Moe's or Chipotle. Occassionally, we will get him one and sometimes he is able to finish it.

Hi Jen! I found your blog from Facebook, and have enjoyed the stories about your kids...sounds like Tyler would get along great with my boys. We are all about the Wii and Star Wars here. Hope y'all are doing well!
