Our Cali princess..

Cali is now going on the potty and telling me when she has to go! I am so thrilled of her progress and she dances when Mommy is happy!

It has been so nice this week to have Scotty home for three days in a row. We spent much time shopping and playing with the kids during our break and Cali is talking so much more. She has started the (Why?) phase, asking questions left and right. The other day in the car I was talking to Cali about Heavenly Father and Jesus and how they can here us when we pray. She was asking me where they are and why can't she see them. Then she asked when are they coming? I then just said I don't know when Jesus will come again, why don't you ask them. She was silent for a minute and then we heard from the back of the car really loud, (Calling), "JESUS.......Where are you.....?". Scotty and I just smiled.

Today Scotty and I were talking about when residency is done and Scotty can start at a hospital in Az and we could tell that Cali was listening and wanting to join in the conversation as well. Cali then asked Scotty, "Why work"? We then said that Daddy needed to work to get money to buy food. Cali then said, "Yeah, and when I get hurt, I can go to the hospital and get money to buy food too". She is so cute!

Where is Isaac?

Ok, so Cali was never like this. She got into some stuff, but Isaac is out of control. He is on top of, into, and eating everything that is anything. Here is Isaac at his best!
Eating toilet paper again........putting silverware in the vent.......
stuffing utensils in the trash.......
wait, do we have a mouse?
No, Isaac has been snacking again.....

And here he got up onto the bathroom counter so he could try to brush his teeth like Cali, I sure do love my boy!

Here comes Santa Clause........

This year was the first year for Cali to actually sit on Santa's lap and she knew exactly what to ask Santa for this year. Harmony Care Bear, yes, and if I can remember correctly, I think he replied "Oh, I don't think they sell those much around here anymore". She was then excited to get a little candy bag from him. That night I asked Cali about sitting on Santa's lap and she said, "He didn't give it me". I assumed she was referring to the care bear.

Isaac wasn't too happy about his experience. He was fine until he looked at the scary beard.

Here we are eating at the Ward Christmas party which is finally out of the way and now I can relax and enjoy Christmas

Gymnastics here we come!

I love taking Cali to Splitz to see all the fun tricks she can do. I really think I just wish I could be in gymnastics again.

Christmas time is near!

Yes! Our tree is up and the stockings are hung. And now we can say to better listen to me or Santa won't bring you any presents!

I am starting to forget what my husband is like when he is NOT sleeping.

Cali started to shout as she was drawing the other day......"Mommy it's an A!" See if you can spot it on her paper.
And Isaac is one fast walker now and his new thing is to laugh and run away as fast as his little wobble walk can go before I can put his diaper back on.
Would anyone like to clean him up?

Our mornings of Fun!

I have to admit that when Cali and Isaac get along and are having fun together, my mornings go smoother and I remember the joys of motherhood again!
All ready for joy school!
Cali was having fun making faces in the mirror and then laughing hysterically at herself. I really don't know where she got that from?

I was showing Cali the other day that most of the leaves have fallen off the trees and Cali said, "OOHH, their dirty". I couldn't help but laugh. Then, this morning those little door stoppers broke off and I told Cali that maybe Daddy can fix it when he gets home later. She then said, "Yeah, daddy can fix it next year." I love that girl!
I can't believe Isaac is walking! He really gets around the house by walking about six or seven steps in a row! He's my happy boy, and I love him so much!

Our visit to AZ!

Our Grandpa Salmon passed away a couple of weeks ago and we were able to come down to AZ for the weekend to be there at the funeral. It was so nice to listen to all the wonderful stories about Grandpa Salmon and feel of the spirit and love for him.
