I saw that Super Why was coming on the TV and that is James' favorite show.  I told him to come and watch it.  He came in the room and had a hard time believing me that it was on next.  "How do you know it is next?"  he asked me.
"Because I'm smart. " I answered.
Sure enough it came on the TV and he was impressed.
A bit into the show he asked me what was going to be on next.  I was folding laundry and said, "I don't know.
"Haaaa!  You're not smart now!"
I gave James a kiss on his arm while he was watching TV.  He looked at me and very seriously said.
"I don't like kisses. Kisses make me frow up.  Kisses make me sick."

One day last week I needed to do something important on the computer, so I got crayons and coloring books out for James and Wesley.  I sat down to type my reasons for NOT wanting to be on jury duty for THREE months (THREE MONTHS!) and I heard Wesley snapping crayons.  "I break it!"  over and over!  He wouldn't stop, so I jumped up and took the crayon box away.  I sat back down and Wesley began chucking the crayon bits he had by him all over the kitchen!    THIS is why I can't be on jury duty, people.
James has been sick with an upset tummy all day.  Tonight he was laying on my floor while we watched some show on sewer systems as I nursed Eden.  He asked me, "Mom, do you like tall worlds?"  I made him repeat himself a few times.  I was not sure what he was saying.
"Oh, tall worlds?  Like, cities??"
"yeah.  I don't like them."
"OHhhh.  Yes, I like cities."
James tells me regularly, "I love you, Mom.  I love you foyeveh and eveh."
I am Reagan's new den leader for Wolf Cub Scouts.  I came downstairs wearing my scout shirt for the first time today and the kids laughed at me.  "You look weird, Mom!"
I said, "I am Akela Hawks."
They still thought I was weird.
The other day while I was helping Wesley say the blessing on the food, he was repeating my every word I said so well. (He is talking better and better.  It is so fun!)  I decided to have him bless each person in the family by name.  When I said, "Please bless Wesley."  He repeated, "Please bless Mom."
Other things Wesley says:
   Stop it Bradley! (He always calls Brad by his full name and we don't know where he picked it up.  So funny)
   Bradley is coming!
   I want peanut butter.
   I yuv you.
   Read a book!
   I want moye peese.
   Me do it.
   I want to see.  (usually after I take a photo of him.)
Reagan bore a sweet testimony in Sacrament meeting this month.  It was tender and heartfelt.  He began with , "Hello.  I know Jesus is the Savior.  I know Joseph Smith was a true prophet.  I know He died for me."  It was touching, but I think we should work on the order he states things.

Eden is 6 Months Old!

I am sad that Eden is 6 months old.  I know it is good and she is growing and healthy, but I am sad to no longer have a tiny baby.  I never will have that ever again.  She is so much fun and such a good happy baby!  Everyone loves her so much.

I wanted to take pictures of Eden in this sweater because it is one that Aubryn also wore.  I took these yesterday while she was still five months.

First Snow

They both wanted to go out in the snow so bad.  Somehow Wesley was a little wiser to what he needed to wear.

They both tried on several hats from the bin.

Wesley in the snow.


The kids have such beautiful lashes!

I crocheted some booties!

I made her headband.

Sorry for the photo overload.  I am loving the stage that Eden is in right now.  She is SO CUTE and FUN!!  The great winter light that comes in my windows is great for photos.
