Elliot needs to recruit a new partner in crime. Sunday evening the boys and I were at home while Lisa was out. I was riding the stationary bike in the basement, and the boys went upstairs for a while. Later on in the evening, as they were getting ready for bed, Finn said to me out of the blue: "We didn't eat any chocolate." Of course, it didn't take us long to interrogate Elliot and find out that he and Elliot had managed to get into candy they received at a birthday party Saturday night. Then, when I came home for lunch on Monday, Finn met me at the door. He said, "Smell my breath." I did, but I didn't smell anything. "It smells like sugar," he said. At first I assumed he had eaten some candy. Instead it turns out that, while Lisa was showering, the boys got into the sugar bowl and enjoyed a pack of artificial sweetener.
Lisa: "Dee What?"
Lisa: "What's that mean?"
Lisa: "Where did you learn that word?"
We got our first serious winter weather of the season...a few inches of wet snow. Finn looked out the window and said:
It looks like someone spread toilet paper all over the world.
Finn broke a board at Tae-Kwon Do tonight. Here is a video and some pictures.
The boys sported their costumes at school today. We went trick-or-treating from 6 to 6:30 tonight, and then the boys had fun passing out candy to visitors at our house.
The boys and I arrived at the end of halftime for todays game between the Timberwolves and Warriors. It was pretty much perfect timing because we didn't have to pay to get in and got there in time for the boys to be the last two kickers in the kids halftime field goal kicking activity. We watched most of the the third quarter before leaving to go to Elliot's last soccer game. Here are some pictures:
Grandma B picked up some kids golf clubs at a yard sale, so Grampa B gave the boys some lessons on Sunday afternoon. Here are some photos:
