Photo Dump

October 29, 2012

Every now and then I clean up my phone and find pictures I forgot I had taken.  Or in this case see pictures that I did not know were taken.

This was one of the rare moments when they were letting me read to them before bedtime. They usually prefer to have Daddy read to them. As you can see it was a struggle for all 3 (I mean 4) of us to fit in the chair. We were reading one of their new Llama Llama books. These are seriously some of my favorite books!

In K4 this year Colton is learning to write in cursive!  I have been so proud by how good he is doing!  I posted this on our fridge and took a picture to send to Chris!  Proud momma!

I have been refreshing myself with both of these books!  Preparation for Parenting is my “go to” book!  It is incredible and following the simple practices is why I have such great sleepers!  Of course I am reading up once again on Natural Childbirth since I am shooting for my third natural delivery.  It is amazing how much you forget!

A few weeks ago I tried my hand at making Sourdough Cinnamon Bread.  Of course I could have never done it without the help of my husband’s step father.  We made 14 loaves!  It was so much fun.  I ended up giving away 10.  I am hoping to make a few more batches between now and Christmas.  These make great gifts!

My two have growing imaginations and I love it!  Recently, the have been going “grocery shopping” around the house!  It took me forever one day to find the lasagna noodles they snatched off the kitchen counter.

From time to time I let Colton skip his nap so we can have some quality time together.  I enjoy it so much, but I think he enjoys it even more.  This day we colored together for the longest time!

On a cool Saturday morning we spotted this momma and her two babies outside our kitchen door!  I could not believe these deer were right in our yard.  We are not seclude, but we do have a somewhat private back yard.

The momma was on the watch while her little ones grazed.

This was me getting cloth diapers ready for “Baby B” … he will be using these before we know it!

Isn’t this an awesome full moon!?

These two love to play hide-and-seek.  I think it is one of their favorite games to play.  Even in my Elephant ears!

Pampered Chef is running a fun incentive for consultants right now.  I earned this adorable bracelet and they send me charms when I reach certain goals… Needless to say the bracelet now belongs to Claire!

Ahem! Can you say, “bracelets!?”

This first picture is Chris consoling Colton… he was upset because Daddy was going to work :(

The next picture is Colton wearing his ear muffs that Daddy bought him – he wears these while they mow together… this totally cracked me up!

IMG_2268IMG_2278

Lately I have been noticing Claire playing with her hair… I think its too cute.

IMG_2408

Colton attempting Daddy’s funny face!  Makes me crack up every time I think about it!

IMG_2399

This is one of those rare quiet moments of them playing together.

IMG_2412

Colton snuggling with Papaw… this is also rare!

IMG_2424

I took these photos to send to Chris.  I was suppose to wait on him to put Claire’s bed together, but I could not help myself!  Not to mention I was proud of myself for getting the frame together.  As if that was not enough I moved them room around too!  Chris only scolded me a little ;)

IMG_2428IMG_2429

Here she is… her first time in her big girl bed!

IMG_2433

Lunch with Daddy… and snuggling with sissy!

IMG_2442IMG_2448

Shew… that is a lot of pictures!

Funny Faces

October 28, 2012

Claire and Colton were getting antsy traveling back from the cabin… 

IMG_2369

So we decided to have a little fun and make funny faces…

IMG_2373

They love for me to take pictures on my phone of them and then let them see it… we did this for a long time!

IMG_2374

As cute and funny as their faces were – no one could beat daddy’s funny face!!

IMG_2382

Colton was so tickled over Chris’ face that he could hardly hold it together!  Listening to him laugh was the cutest thing ever!

IMG_2384

Then he gave Daddy’s Funny Face a try… not too bad! ;)

IMG_2391

It is not expensive trips or vacations that make the best memories… it is simple moments like this that do!  Love my little family!

The Cabin on Fall Break

We always have so much fun at the cabin.  The kids LOVE it.  They love walking around outside and collecting things.  I remember to bring these buckets and Claire collected acorns.  “You like on Ice Age Momma!”.  She ran around with these buckets of acorns for three days.

IMG_2343

Colton loves to play the video game!

He made it to the third level of Ms. PacMan all by himself!

IMG_2345

Dr. Brooks to the rescue!

She loves her new mittens and hat.

I was really a slacker about taking pictures!
