All Smiles!

March 2, 2010
The saying goes, "When mom is happy everybody is happy" but if your little ones are happy how can you not be? It's so nice when these two actually get along! They were such great buddies this day and played so well together.

I realized it had been awhile since I'd taken bath time pictures so we pulled out the bubbles and the camera and had a party! After bathing them separately tonight it went so much smoother I can't go back to both in the tub at once. With them getting older and realizing their 'differences' its definitely for the better. So I'm glad I got these pictures when I did.

Don't you love Kalli's red hot nails!

The Imagination of a 3 year old

March 1, 2010
Many who know Kalli know she has one of the wildest imaginations out there. This particular morning she was being exceptionally funny. She sat at the door to the hallway with her back to the living room and made me sit all the way at the end of the hall as she 'read' her Book of Mormon. I wish I would have video taped more b/c she went on forever.

Next we moved to the bathroom to finish our scripture study
And later that day Kalli was able to pick out a 'toy' for her recent successes in the bathroom department (and no I don't mean reading scriptures!) The previous day she found an old dog collar at my mom's and being the wonderful Gege that she is, my mom let her wear it...Yuck! So I promised her if she didn't have any accidents she could pick out her very own, never-been-worn, dog collar. As we wandered aimlessly through the toy aisle she did in fact have her eye on a few things and I pointed out a handful of toys. But in the end she really wanted that pink and white polka dot collar. I made a promise and as weird as it was buying a dog collar for my baby girl she was very excited. Luckily she hasn't worn it much since and I'm just happy when she decides that she does want it at least I know it hasn't been worn by some dog!

Phone Pics for February

Here are my updated phone pictures and videos for the month of February...enjoy!

Kalli and her newest cousin Buddy (Auntie Autumn and Uncle Matt's pup)

I love this picture of Kalli and Matt swinging in our backyard
Kalli at the library after they sang Happy Birthday
Joe and Kaiden both had a day off of school and since it was so cold we decided to enjoy a day at the movies. And guess what we saw...the Chipmunks!
After leaving the theater Kalli kept screaming, "Alllllllviiiiiiiin" Kaiden accidentally fell in the ditch by our driveway and it was hilarious! Of course he didn't think so and was very upset as well as a little embarrassed. I tried taking a picture but I guess he didn't like that either. Oops
Me, Greyson, and Kalli had a play date at Rachel London's and I didn't want Greyson to feel left out while us girls played dress up. You can imagine how much his daddy loved these pictures! But doesn't he make a beautiful little princess fairy?
Me and Kal took a walk in the back with our boots and she got a little stuck in the mud and then preceded to fall you can tell by her face she wasn't thrilled. I think she was more worried about getting in trouble. As for me I knew what I was getting into when we went out in the first place.Kalli and my adorable little nephew, Greyson, playing outside at Gege'sKatie finally let me take care of her kids for once! I was able to pick up Kaleigh and Tyler from their daycare to come play at our house until Katie got off of work. Tyler was so excited to come play and I loved having Kaleigh love on me.
I don't remember what the deal was or why Kalli was so extremely tired but if you know my kids they DO NOT normally do this! Poor thing she was exhausted during lunch at Chili's and as you can see with Uncle Aaron sitting next to her she didn't get much rest!
