Okay - so it's me Molly. It' s only FIVE more days until my 1/2 birthday dinner at Chili's. I'm SO excited. It's also only SIX more days until our Christmas show. I'm singing Silent Night at our Christmas Eve Service at church on (wait for it)...Christmas EVE!!! I sing Silent Night with daddy ALL YEAR long for my lullaby every night so I know all the words REALLY well. It's also only SEVEN more days until I open up about a gazillion Christmas presents from my Mormor (plus a bunch more from Gigi and Dae). I wish the Christmas season wasn't SOOOO long!! We do have an advent calendar on the wall that we made that has a piece of candy for us as we count down. I just wish we could eat that candy faster!!! ;) It's 65 degrees here and we're going to go over to the park and play some soccer. Hope everyone is having a great winter!!!! Love, Molly

Dude. So mommy made me and Molly get all dressed up (I even had a tie on!). I was a little annoyed at first, man, but then she whipped out these fantastically large Strawberry Vanilla Swirly Pops. I thought that was totally cool, dude. If she's going to make me dress up in the penguin suit and take pictures, the least she could do was hook me up with some shugah!!! Pretty sneaky, mom!!!

Molly was running through the house and tripped and fell and hers went crashing to the floor in a million little pieces. That was kinda fun to watch too. I'm totally excited for Christmas, peeps! Only 21 days left!!!! Woohoo!! Later!! (Simon)

Hey Peeps! It's me Molly. I have a story for YOU! Simon Elliott (my little bro) thinks he's too cool. He tried to help mommy fill the van with gas on Tuesday and was able to yank the nozzle out of the car with gas still spewing out of it. He's such a twerp. I'm a little tired of his "No ME! I will do it all by MYSELF!" attitude. He's such a 3 year old. Geesh!

Mommy got most of the gasoline (smell) out of their clothes but she wasn't all that impressed with Simon this week.

As for me, I've been learning my phonics and letters and a few sight words and can read a simple sentence if I put my mind to it. (Kinda bizarre that I can type full paragraphs and coherent blogs, huh?) Math is MUCH easier for me. I was learning how to subtract from 3 and 4 this week. I was practicing my dance steps (for dance class) last night too. I'm learning as much as I can every day! Later!

Hey Peeps! It's Molly and Si. We are totally psyched for Gator season. We're HUGE Tim Tebow fans. In fact, we are homeschooled JUST LIKE TEBOW was!!! Tim Tebow and his fam helped pave the way for us to be able to play extracurricular sports such as football and cheerleading without having to spend 8 hours in a school building. We know that we're still barely doing kindergarten curriculum, but it only takes us 30 minutes to an hour to do what it takes 3-5 hours for traditional school/classrooms. We spend the rest of the time enjoying life and avoiding the long lines and traffic. We went to the Cummer Art Museum this summer. We like the kids area but the "temprorary" exhibit of the "Sketch to Scalpel" series was a little bit much for us. Our friends came with us and our friend Vivien was quite unimpressed with the exhibits/sculptures of the insides of the body. She helped us find the exit to that wing VERY quickly :) The kids area had a neat contraption that helped us learn how to mix primary colors to come up with totally new colors. Did you know that yellow and blue make green? So cool!!

We've spent some time at the Jax zoo and we TOTALLY dig the train at the zoo. Gotta try the carousel if you're ever there too.

We had a really fun science activity last week. We were munchin on Target brand cheese crackers. Pepperidge Farm monopolized the [gold]fish idea so Target chose to go the "Chickadee" route. I [Molly] wanted to know what a Chickadee looked like since we were so good at making the "Chick uh dee dee dee dee" call. Youtube has some cool videos of 'em if you need a refresher course on Chickadees! We need to make a trip to [great] Grandpa's house in Iowa pretty soon so we can see all of his birds and have him give us a primer course.

Anyway, we hope you are enjoying the last days of summer. They're totally hot here in Florida and we're grateful that the hurricanes have stayed away so far this year. And remember .... GO....GATORS!!!!

Hey Dude! It's me Si. Long time no post! Here's a picture of me that Daddy took when he took me on a special "date" to see Thomas The Tank Engine LIVE! I love trains (and CARS). I was so excited that I was grinning the whole time. We've been super busy just bein' kids (Molly and me). We got WAY too many presents for Christmas. Also - we have been dabbling with homeschool (we go to a support group and everything) BUT Molly is still technically in preschool and the state of Florida doesn't require you to officially "enroll" as a homeschooler until you're in 1st grade so we're taking our time and Molly is starting to learn to read. Go Big Sis! Don't ask me how I know all of this stuff since I'm only 2. All questions must be submitted in writing to my mommy. Thank you in advance. Later, man.
