Monet or Picasso?

Logan absolutely loves art.


He especially loves painting.


He's even started to use his imagination painting people and objects.


The painting above we agreed to call, Piggy Back Ride because he says the large red image is a mommy and the little one to the right is a kid ridding piggy back...can you see it?


Art makes him happy.


And it makes me happy just watching him :)


Quotes to Remember : 002

"Mommy, I make beautiful art too, just like Claude Monet."
-- Logan Dippel

(We read books about art, but I never realized he was actually taking in everything I was telling him...wow!)

Quotes to Remember : 001

"Mommy, that bus is takin' pictures of us!" -- Logan Dippel
(In response to seeing the flashing light on top of a school bus.)

A little note about Quotes to Remember:
Like any toddler, Logan has his fair share of hilarious phrases and sentences that are just too cute not to share (or at least I think so). And often times there isn't much more to be said, so I've decided to begin another new post called Quotes to Remember. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

It's Pretty Sunny in Here

Logan has been talking a lot lately about needing his own pair of sunglasses now that he's a big boy and not a baby. He's expressed that since Dad and Mom wear sunglasses when it's sunny that he 'should probably get a pair at the store.'

So yesterday he walked into the living room, which has several South facing windows and remembered that he had a pair of sunglasses in his playroom from when he was a baby. He dug them out and insisted that he needed to wear them while in that sunny room. Needless to say, I thought he looked hilarious and just had to share!

Logan's 5 Seconds of Fame

A couple weeks ago, Logan had his 5 seconds of fame on the 5 o'clock news after we attended Pancakes for Penguins at the KC Zoo. We finally got ahold of the video and are able to share :)

Who is Finigan?

First things first -- who is Finigan and why is the new blog named after Finigan?

Michael Finnigan?

No, not Michael Finnigan, that man who grew whiskers on his chinigin. Let's put it this way, remember Bennifer? Brangelina? The term coined for Hollywood super couples? Well, Logan is going to be a brother soon to a little sister whom we've decided to name, Finley. So, while they aren't exactly a super couple per se, I'm going to venture out and say that they will be super...siblings? Maybe strange, but it sounded cute: Finley + Logan = Finigan. So, I welcome and introduce you to Tales of Finigan.
