Trying to entertain ourselves

Well, as Mommy and Daddy have less time to play with us these days, we are learning new ways to entertain ourselves. We find ourselves wrassling more and playing thundering herd of elephants more - we especially like to do this when our blurpy girl is screaming in the middle of the night. Sometimes we will jump in mommy or daddy's lap when they are reading to our sister or rocking her. If we have to share laptime, I guess we can do that for a while.

Here is Ollie stealing a nap in Mr. Chen's bed (which was bought because Ollie never let Mr. Chen sleep in the bed that Monty Q. sent him for winning the Doing the Q. contest)

Mr. Chen is sitting on top of a basket in the end table.

Again, we're really sorry we've not been by to visit more. It's very hard for us when mommy can't help us get on the computer during the week. We love you all and miss you very much!! Happy Weekend!

Am I Still the Baby?

Normally, we like to post our Mancat Monday photos on Monday but yesterday Ollie proved to everyone that he is still the baby, too! Here he is with cousin DorisAnne (while Aunt Denise holds Sophia). As most of you know, Mr. Chen hates to be held so he proves he is still the baby by crying for mommy and daddy to play string with him.

We are sorry we still haven't had much (if any) time to visit you all. It is very busy here and mommy still isn't letting us get on the computer very often. We are thinking about you all and missing you and can't wait to visit and find out what's new. We are hoping that we can get on the computer more this week because Grandma and Grandpa are coming up from South Carolina to stay for the whole week so there will be extra arms to hold the blurpy so we can get mommy to help us blog!

Mr. Chen's String Thang

Happy Tuesday Everyone!

Many of you know that Mr. Chen has a bit of a thing for string. If you were to walk in our house right now you'd see string everywhere. This is a relatively new development of his (he started his string fetish about two or three months ago) and from the moment he wakes up in the morning till he goes to bed, he has one thing on his mind - STRING! He cries and cries and runs around until Mommy or Daddy pick up some string and play with him.

Here are some recent action shots of Mr. Chen playing with string. Isn't he quite the vicious string chaser?? If you biggify, you can see his claws and teeth real close. Also note the crazed look in his eye - he will not rest until the string is caught!

Sunny, Sleepy Saturday

Well, things are returning to some semblance of normalcy here. We are enjoying a sunny, sleepy Saturday here. Our blurpy sister is doing good. She is sleeping a lot too. We like that in a sister. Sometimes she cries real loud. Well, she does this alot actually... But when she's not crying, she's usually sleeping. We think we'll all get along just fine...

Thanks to EVERYONE for stopping by and wishing us well - we all so appreciate your kind congrats and well-wishes! We hope to get around and visit everyone and thank you individually soon.

Hope everyone has a happy weekend!!

Mommy and Daddy's Little Helpers

Don't worry Mommy and Daddy... You can go take a nap. We'll watch our baby sister.

(This last photo was taken right before mommy yelled "no Ollie" and reminded me that while we are good babysitters, it is best if we NOT get in the bed with her.)
