Catching up.......

Our trip to AZ was the best ever!!!!!!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with the Salmons!

The bounce house was a hit with the kids

weather was beautiful and we didn't want to leave.

Back in Michigan, finally it snows

Isaac's first time in the snow this winter

Boys are wild......

If anyone is wondering how crazy 22month old boys act, here is how my couple of days have been with Isaac:

cleaning up poured out oats, pretzels, raisins, or anything else in the pantry
fixing fake flower pots with all the pedals pulled off
picking up the knocked down kitchen table chairs five times
cleaning up my make-up smeared all over our carpet
repeatedly telling Isaac not to scratch, hit, or take Cali's toys and run
getting Isaac down from the counters
wiping up a huge soap mess when the soap dispenser had been pushed down way too many times
cleaning up pee from hopping right out of the tub
cleaning off poop hands from sticking them in his poopy diaper to show me
getting Isaac to open the door when he locked himself in with my keys inside,
and now climbing out of his crib when he doesn't want to go to bed (can't open doors yet) and I'm crossing my fingers he never learns.

And when is that magical age when they start listening to you? Really, I want to know.

Cali at three.......

The other day I gave Cali her dinner plate and she looked at it, rested her head on her hand, and said, "oh yuckers".

Today I was explaining to Cali that my friend Angie will be taking her to preschool in the morning and she said, "oh, is it because her car is bigger and the fastest?"

I had been explaining to Cali about Heavenly Father's plan for us lately and I think she has it down because she asked me the other day, "where will we go first mom, live back in AZ with our cousins or live with Jesus in Heaven?"

I know there are plenty more that I can't remember now. She just says the cutest things all the time and I just love that little three year old so so much. I really don't want her to get any older. I love how she is always telling stories that she likes to make up with her imagination and sings random songs about nothing. She always wants to know the schedule of the day and when she can invite a friend over. She is learning to play with Isaac a little better now the he is getting older and he just adores playing with her and teasing her when she doesn't give him attention.
She loves going to church to see her friends and loves to explain to me what she learns in nursery and preschool! She is my angel.

Sweet tooth

Isaac must have eaten most of his candy while trick or treating because I can't find much of it anywhere.

My day........

I just love to see three year olds play dress ups!

When you stay home all day it seems like the longest day ever. What else could I have done with my kids today.......
This is what we did:
played with.... dress ups
the swing in basement
watched my friends kids for awhile
colored with crayons
watched Mulan and other cartoons on
had plenty of snacks
worked on Cali's preschool workbook
danced around to fun songs
talked on the phone with cousins
and other than the usual making meals, bathing, dressing, wiping bums, and cleaning up messes, I think I can call this a day! Isn't being a young mom and playing with your little ones just so much fun!

Leaves are falling all around......

Scotty and I drove to a spot to pick leaves and take pictures. The kids loved the horses the best. Michigan is so beautiful in the fall, I love it!

Family in town!!

Cali was so excited to have her Grandma Jones, Aunt Sara, and two cousins, Brielle and Brooke to come and stay with us for awhile! The weather was perfect and beautiful every day! We enjoyed going to the Apple Orchard in Plymouth and visiting the animals, going on a hay ride, picking a pumpkin, and drinking their yummy apple cider!

Carving pumpkins time with cousins is always the best!

We sure will miss having our family around and was so glad to have them stay with us. When Brielle was telling Cali that she was going to have to go now back to Arizona, Cali gave her a hug and said, it's ok Brielle, I will still love you!

Isaac update

Isaac is getting so big now, I can't believe how much he's grown!
He runs all day and sleeps all night. I love him so much! He makes me laugh all the time with his energy and fun loving spirit!
Isaac is 22 months old soon to be two in December!

Isaac weighs almost as much as his sister.......

He is so busy all the time doing something.
I also know that he should listen to his mommy when she says come here, but that really never works yet. Oh, when will it I wonder. My hope is before his little brother comes out.

His favorites are.....
cheese crisps and salsa
teasing his sister
running away from mom
daddy playing monster with him
drinking applejuice
being outside!
