He has figured out how to work the computer
And after never having a climber
He has mastered how to climb out of his crib so rather than risk any more broken bones
we got a guard and made his bed
into a "big boy" bed
He loves to sing and dance
and can be heard singing random songs
every now and then
He's so sweet
and is starting to be able to play with his big brothers
and wants to do everything they do.
Yesterday he feel asleep after church
before we had a chance to change his clothes
Rhett made the comment that he looked so cute
laying there asleep in his church clothes
like a worn out missionary...
I don't want him to grow up
If it were possible to keep him
the way he is right now
I would do it in a heartbeat.
There's a quote in Finding Neverland that says:
A boy should never be made to go to bed;
For he only wakes up a day older
and before you know it,

I found this cute game
for the new Disney movie UP
It's the Balloon Blow-up Game
and it's very fun to play.
A little disclaimer here...
I HATE video games -
o.k. - "hate" is a bit harsh,
but I really don't like them.
In my opinion,
they are a complete waste of time
and I don't like that my boys feel
like they have to get
their video game time in
or their day is not complete.
I have played my share of Wii,
but I can't play for long
before I feel like I should be doing
I don't even like computer games -
they run in the same category in my book.
Life would be so much better
without the waste of time of the
PS2, Wii, X-box, etc...
But I can't get enough of this balloon game
I even dreamt about chains of balloons last night
And I can't resist playing a few
(o.k. - more than that)
games when I'm on the computer.
I may have to enforce
our 1 hour time limit rule

is the popping up of all the
I love snowcones
and today we decided to get one
after Porter's soccer game
(which they played great!)
It was the best snowcone I have ever had
finely crushed ice
lots of flavor juice
and just the right size
for just the right price
it was heaven.
I wished I had my camera with me
to capture the boys
with their first snowcone.
The moment was priceless.
My dream one day
is to get a snowshack of our own
My goal is to have the boys run it
and earn money for their missions and college.
I think it's a grand idea
Rhett rolls his eyes
every time I mention it...
Later on in the day
we headed down to the complex clubhouse
to watch a movie
in the little theatre there.
The pool is there as well
and we decided to go out by it
just for a minute...
We stuck our toes in
the water was still pretty cold.
They have a little 1 1/2 foot deep kiddie pool;
Pretty soon our pants were hiked up to our knees
to walk on the first step
Before I knew it,
the boys had their pants and shorts
hiked up to their hips
so they could walk in as deep as they could
and soon their pants were wet
and their shirts were wet
We took off the shirts
and since their pants were already pretty much soaked
they got right in
and "swam" around
until one of the managers came out
to inform us the pools weren't open yet
and asked us to get out...

You've got to have this:
Teriyaki Roasted Salmon with Oranges, Fingerling Potatoes and Haricots Verts.
I normally don't serve my kids fish,
because they usually don't eat it.
But I did tonight and they loved this!!
Their plates were clean...
They were expecially diligent in eating their dinner
because we had this for "treat":
Chocolate Caramel Fondue
We laid out a blanket on the carpet
and went at it.
The only sound was the boys chewing...
And the first one to make a mess down their shirt??
Right after I handed napkins to the boys...
