So after all of that, here's what we ended up with! (Although I have to admit that some of my favorites are the sillier photos that show their personalities.)

Me: Z, do you know what a windmill does?
Z: Yeah. (In the noncommittal tone he uses when he's ignoring you, doesn't understand the question, or doesn't know the answer.)
Me: What does it do?
Me: Maybe I can help. What do you think this part that looks like a fan does?
Z: Oh, that's the part that spins around to generate electricity.

"Uh oh, the excavator is broken. Do you know what 'broken' means? It means 'tighty-whitey'. And when something is broken, you say 'okie-dokie' and then Mommy comes and fixes it. But I don't need to fix the excavator right now because now it's a crane."

This was the best I could do in my attempt to get a photo of the two of them "together" and "smiling". You can see Miss S's adorable Easter dress, knitted by Gramma Hill! We also realized today that Z only has one button-down shirt, and it's the same one he wore in his Santa photo last year.

|The only way to get a smile in a photo around here is to do it myself.|

And I’m not going to do much better with this post. Just wanted to put up a couple photos in honor of St. Patrick’s Day!

Lest you think we have two grumpy leprechauns all the time, this was taken 2 minutes before the last photo:
And just for fun, here is a classic example of how things are around here lately (which might explain the general grumpiness when I force them to sit together for a picture):
