Aubryn LOVES to fix hair. Yesterday she fixed my hair "like a baby's hair". I thought it was more of a Minnie Mouse look. She was so proud of herself.

Made My DAY!

I woke up to this when it snowed for the first time this year. It made me feel so happy. Especially because Brian spelled my name right!! Remember?

"What the Heck Princess"

Our neighbor gave Aubryn some leotards. She put this one on tonight to wear to her tumbling class. Reagan walked in and saw her in it for the first time and said, "You a princess? You What the Heck Princess? You have pook-a-dots? You have chocolate pook-a-dots!"

I love the way he says pook-a-dots. Poke rhymns with book. He says "boogers" the same way. He says the first part of the word like "boo" (the Halloween boo). Yesterday he announced to me, "Mom! I got my boooger out!"

How is it...

...that Aubryn can play out in the snow for an hour, come in, change her clothes, eat a snack, and play for another hour before either of us finally notice THIS!!!Does she feel pain???!

"Hey, Aubryn, remember Jesus? He lives in heaven."
-Reagan to Aubryn this morning.

My kids LOVE to eat snow. They were outside for awhile, but got cold really fast. It is so much work to bundle them all up! So I brought snow into the house and let them play with and eat it. I thought it was a really good idea. They got the benefits of the snow without freezing and I don't have to take a half hour to bundle them up, only to have them come back in in a few minutes.

I walked across the kitchen while the kids played with/ate their snow and got hit in the neck with a snow ball! I looked over and saw that Reagan was really pleased with himself for hitting a moving target. "I hit your neck!" I scolded him. Then turned so he couldn't see my face and giggled to myself. I should have known. How could he resist throwing the snow at someone.

Kids Say the Darndest Things!

Especially mine.

Brad: "MoooOOOooom, Reagan in breathing in my face!"

Aubryn: I said to her, "Aubryn you are getting taller and prettier everyday!"
She replied, "And soon I'll be just like you!" (melt my heart)

I asked her what she did at a friends house one day. She said, "All I did is watch TV and pee my pants."

She innocently got the word "manual" mistaken for the words "magna doodle". That was confusing for a bit, but funny when we realized why neither of us understood what the other was talking about.

Reagan: I asked him this morning (after much whining), "Are you going to be happy today?"
"NO, not yet. Not later!!" he said.

Yesterday he said something to me that made no sense. Something about that he was 3 now and could do something that has nothing to do with age. Then said, "It makes sense or something!" It was like he read my thought of, "That doesn't make any sense."
