First Day of Mother's Day Out!

Today was the first day of Mother's Day Out for Payton and Reagan. Both kids loved their classes and came home with some really neat art pictures. Payton will go to MDO on Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursday, and Reagan will go on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It is hard to believe that next year Payton will start kindergarten.

Where did the summer go???

We have had a great summer! Most of our days have been spent either camping or at the pool. It was time for some recent pictures. I take them when I can...even with cheetos all over their faces.

Payton seems to have grown a foot this summer. We have started buying clothes for the fall, and he is in a size 5T! That seems huge! This is my "little" boy. He was so small for so long and now is growing like a weed. Payton loves to swim. His head stays below the water more than on top of the water. Just last week he started jumping off the diving board and going down the slide at the pool. Math is his new intellectual hobby. He has a number/math game on his leapster and so now we have conversations like "3+4=7".

Reagan is two, and I think she knows she is supposed to carry out the "terrible two" behavior. About a month ago, she discovered the phrase, "no, get away." She also learned how to kick when she throws a fit on the floor. On the other hand, she is such a sweetie with her cute little maternal ways. She loves to play with her kitchen and with her babies. Reagan loves to go to the pool too. She loves to swim with her "tay-tay" - her name for Payton. Reagan has also been growing! Her foot has grown 2 sizes this summer! We just got her hair cut into a bob last week, and she looks like our little malibu barbie!

Children are God's precious gifts...........especially to us!

Our Life in May!

May - it came and went so fast. Highlights of the month: Aunt Jill's College Graduation, Payton and Reagan bathing themselves (pictured), Payton climbing trees and Reagan wearing a bikini. The kids are great! We are experiencing a lot of fun times and some really tiring times too, but we are ready for summer. We have already started swimming at the pool and our first camping trip of the summer is in a couple weeks.

Mud...My Girl's Best Friend!

We have been getting a lot of rain lately, and there are parts of our yard that look like a swamp. This afternoon Reagan and Payton were playing outside and within 5 minutes of being outside this is what she was doing. She was telling me all about how she was "building". Reagan loves the mud! No toys are needed for her. Only dirt and water.

Payton did not want in the mud. He spent most of the afternoon telling Reagan to get out of the mud. He chose to stay on the deck and play with his babies (pronounced BAY BEES). Payton has named all the stuffed animals in the house. His imagination is definately working.

Payton's ABC Birthday Party

Today was a beautiful day for a birthday party! Payton had a great time being with his friends and playing. We made shirts, played and ate. It was a wonderful day! We are so thankful to have so many wonderful friends and family to celebrate with!
