Lunch Love

Hoffmom has been counting down the days to Valentine’s Day via the boys’ lunboxes…
 (The Valentine's lunch menu includes pink salmon salad with crackers, red raspberries, laughing cow cheese in iconic red wax packaging, pink strawberry lemonade, and strawberry layered jello hearts!)
And how are the boys sharing their Valentine wishes? Through laughter…
(The boys' Valentine's jokes are taped to giggle sticks... think Shake Weight but less weight loss and more hysterical laughter sounds!)
May you have such a wonderful weekend you either snort milk through your nose or pee a little in your pants! :) xoxo

Not Your Average Dunkin' Donuts...

The Hoffbrothers and I decided to try out some gourmet donuts – our selections: Blood Orange (not pictured because we ate it too quickly), Butter and Salt, Madagascar Vanilla Bean Twist, and Huckleberry.
In 3rd place (and we didn’t even finish this one) – Butter and Salt - ewww... awful... donuts need to be sweet -PERIOD! 
Tied for 2nd were Vanilla Bean and Huckleberry. Both tasty, but nothing special... 
And the unanimous winner - Blood Orange!. We almost wanted to drive back to get more of that flavor! 
 So if you see a blood orange donut anywhere near you, grab it and shove it in your mouth ASAP!!!

Not Enough (Dog) Hours in the Day...

Our wee Hoffdog is now 14 weeks old and already has such a busy schedule….
... tail-chasing...
... soccer-playing...
... digging...
... food dish-attacking...
... bike riding...
... stick chewing...
... and sliding...

As we head into serious teething season, we can only hope that her activities DO NOT start to include furniture distressing….

Luck of the Ch-Irish

For the Lunar New Year, Hoffdad bought us all scratcher lotto tickets for fun. Finn won a second scratcher. What ensued next was a conversation about how this was all just luck and that you don't necessarily win every time. So of course, when he scratched off his 2nd scratcher, the kid won $10.
Then yesterday, we hosted a little Superbowl viewing party and organized one of those buy-a-square friendly wager activities...
Guess who won the first quarter and final game score boxes?! Apparently my kid knows when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em.... (sigh).

A Horse is a Horse...

A little Lunar New Year flair for you...
(Festive decor...)
 (The dinner...)
 (Dessert, red envelopes, and treats....)
And yes, I get that the boys' new shirts aren't really "Year of the Horse"... but I figure they're red and most likely Made in China, soooo..... we're good, right?! ;)

Ready, Aim, Giggle

Finn and his buddy both received Red Rider BB Guns over the holidays so they decided to do a bit of target practice…
Now what’s better than shooting BB guns together? Actually hitting the zombie target! But what’s even better than just hitting the target…
… getting to giggle about WHERE you hit the zombie on the target!!!!

Moments with Seamus

Miss my wee one? Well miss his antics no longer….
(More like Caution Children at Rest...) 
 (Why get IN bed to sleep when you can just roll yourself in the covers on the floor and nap that way...)
 (Seamus making himself at home in the school library...)
 (Move over Doritos Taco... Seamus is taking it to the next level...)
 (Pumpkins and Legos... naturally...)
 (Oh... Seamus... are you trying to peek at us through the stairs?...)
 (... nope... you've just fallen asleep that way....)
Goodness… now that I review the content, I suppose this should have been titled, “Napping Moments with Seamus…”
