A Little Fun to Lighten Up theTension Around Here...

ManyBlessings, over at A Life Outside the Box, has sort-of tagged my kids. Well, really, she said, "if you haven't done it yet and want to play along, consider yourself tagged! :)" So here goes, from oldest to youngest, I'll just name 2 random facts about each, instead of 10...


TE


1. TE is and has always been a fine-motor skill kid. He has been doing papercraft since about 3rd grade. He started with origami. He now does these fabulous paper models that involved card stock, an exacto knife, glue, and LOTS of patience. Take a look at these...everything you see is made of paper...



2. TE once had a drawing published in Highlights magazine.


Sunshine



1. Sunshine is a mega-Lego-maniac. He especially likes Star Wars Legos. We found a video of him when he was just 3. We asked him what he wanted for Christmas. His answer: "a Siff Infiwtwaitew" (Translation: a Sith Infiltrator - a Star Wars Lego) And he could build it, too. Here is a glimpse into his room...don't even ask about the sorting system...



2. Sunshine is deathly allergic to peanuts. We carry the Epi-Pen everywhere we go. I'm like the food-nazi at potlucks.

Sugar



1. Sugar loves chihuahuas. She's obsessed. I don't know why.

2. Sugar was the one who first asked us for a sister. She's not so sure it was a good idea, but she is pretty excited that Cupcake will soon be home.


Cupcake



1. Cupcake loves nice-smelling things. She loves to have lotion rubbed on her feet. She even loves the smell of Purell. We use it before every meal in Guatemala. She's going to wonder what happened to the Purell when we get home. We may have to keep using it before meals, just for tradition.

2. Cupcake likes to eat almost everything, except pickles. She especially loves butter - just butter. She licks it off the bread.

I'm not tagging anyone, but if you want to play, I'd love to hear about your kids.

Blessings to you,
Mamita

I LOVED reading this!!!! Thanks for playing! I didn't know any of this about your kids, except the one about your daughter asking for a sister. You've got some pretty talented (and darn sweet) kiddos there Mamita! :)
