I just had a funny conversation with Cameron I thought I'd share!
Me (as I was carying Cameron up to bed): Will you stay little forever?
Cam- no, I want to be big like you.
Me- but don't you want to be my little boy forever?
Cam- No,I want to Drive a car
Me- oh, okay
Cam- Mom, I have to drive a car, so I have to be big!
For the past 2 months I have had to hide my keys or keep them in my pocket and keep the car locked, why? Because Cameron apparently wants badly to drive a car and he will get in and pretend to drive and lately he asks for the keys so he can go start the car. That boy, he's crazy!

These pictures are not the greatest, but I just had to put them up. Maddie likes to play with modeling clay and make little animals and beds for them. They are so cute. Here she made a penguin and her home. a bed and toys and even rugs for the floor. The little penguin even has interchangeable red or yellow bow!

Cameron played Tee ball this spring. I can't say that he loved it but it was good for him to learn the game. Baseball takes a lot of patience! While waiting for your turn to bat and waiting out field for a ball to come your way. Patience is not a real strong point right now for Cam. I'm sure in a few years he will have a lot more fun. That being said, we had a blast watching the funny little boys. They were all so cute!

I have never had a toddler so daring as Connor! This park near our house has a very high, very steep slide. Connor goes to the bridge and climbs the steep steps to the high slide and goes right down like it's nothing at all. He is Mr independent right now and wants to do everything himself, he's so funny!

It's been so so cold! Bailey and Cameron wanted to go out and play in the rain/snow. They got very muddy and cold!

We went to Zions and did a little hiking. It was really beautiful and the
weather was perfect. The kids had a lot of fun! A nice change of
pace from the long dreary winter! They loved all the little
caves along the way.
This was on the up hill part of the hike, Maddie was a little tired, but she enjoyed it when it was
a little more flat or down hill.

Connor is definetly the baby of the family. He
gets cranky when things are not the way he wants
them, and he has two big sisters that will pretty much
give him what he wants. He is such a mamma's boy
and he will cry until I come and get him. Needless to
say nursery has not gone all that well. He is talking
more and more. I love it when he says "Yep" and
"Ya You" ( love you) He sings the Abc's and a few other
songs that I sing to him and bedtime. Now if we could
only get him off the bottle, it's my fault that he still has it
but now, insists on ba-ba and bakie at bed time. ( bottle
and blankie) oh well!
Cameron is still a busy boy! He will be 4 in May. He does crazy stuff all the time. He loves to disassemble, dirtify and destroy everything. but I still love him to pieces! He is really smart and learned all the ABC'c and sounds and can now sound out his name, good job Cam- Cam!
tall, she just won't stop growing. She is doing well on
her school work and Piano lessons. She scored in the
top ten percent nationally on the Iowa test in School,
Go Maddie! She now wears retainers on top and bottom
full time, they make her look like a big kid. She still loves
horses and books about animals, and now has a total obsession
with American Girl Dolls. I won't buy her one so she is saving
her money for one. She is Awesome and such a good helper
I love that I can ask her to play with or read to one of the boys
and she is ready and willing. ( for the most part)

I take a supplement called Emergen-C. I have heard that it's pretty much the same as Airborne. I like Emergen-C because it costs less that Airborne, and I think it is tastier, and you don't have to wait for it to melt (or whatever.) I have heard so many conflicting sides to these products. Some say that they don't work at all and have a very strong opinion about it. I have been using Emergen-c for about two years, off and on and mostly in the Fall and Winter. I have not had a really bad cold in these two years, I have had 1 mild cold and this Fall I lost my voice but had no other symptoms. I have two kids in school ( the germ factory) and they have brought home some nasty stuff, I did not get any of it. I really feel like the Emergen-C has boosted my immune system, I used to get sick all the time. is it all in my head that it really works? One more thing I always get a flu shot and so does my family (exept my dear hubby who usually won't) We have never had influenza, Just like the Emergen-C/ Airborne I have heard that people really don't think they work, they work for me, what's the deal, am I just lucky? TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK!

Christmas Morning at our house was so nice this year!
We took our time and had a great time. It was snowing like
crazy outside, so we just stayed home for the morning. Then we
went to the Attebury's for dinner. It was a great day!
Connor's new favorite pass time. He gathers all his favorite books
and his 'bikie'(blanket) and he is good for like 10 min. WOW!
The girls and Brinlee (Maddie's friend) after the
We put on the Nativity at Grammy's house this year.
