Brooklyn's Tongue

So Brooklyn really likes her tongue. She is always moving it, whether it be like a lizard or curling it just so. She recently has been doing this curly thingy, and she does it all the time. I finally caught it on camera, so weired, but cute at the same time.

Happy Easter, Birthday to Kassi, and Lincoln

We had a lot happen within the last few weeks. First was Easter. We went to an Easter egg hunt at the park with a lot of friends, then was Easter itself. After that it was my Birthday, then Lincoln's Birthday 2 days after mine. So We were really busy! Here are some fun pictures of all of these events.

Happy Easter with Kassi and Brooklyn!

Happy Easter with Barry and the Boys

My birthday was a great one this year. I turned 25! Yay! I was so grateful to my friends who made me cupcakes and ice cream, I would have felt pretty lame making a cake for myself. Lincoln was kind of confused because he kept thinking it was his birthday. So he kept getting upset. I kept having to explain to him that his birthday was 2 days later. It was a nice day though.

We then celebrated Lincoln's Birthday, He was so happy that day. I have never seen him smile so much. We had a potty chart for Lincoln when we started potty training him. We told him that if he filled up the chart that he could have something special that he got to pick out. So he picked out going to Chuck E. Cheese. So he finished his potty chart about a week ago, so we celebrated his being potty trained and turning three by going to C.E.C. It was fun. Then we came home and had cake and ice cream with the family. I cannot believe that Lincoln is 3! I am so glad to have him as my son.

A new Twilight fan

So every afternoon before the kids go down for naps I tell them a bedtime story. I try to tell all kinds of stories. I have told smurf stories,the Jetsons, Flinstones, Spiderman, Superman, Batman, Rosa Park, Albert Einstein, George Washington, Baden Powell, Abraham get the idea. So today I was trying to think of something new and I decided I was going to tell them about Edward Cullen and Bella Swan. So for those of you who know the Twilight story I told them up to the part right before Bella figures out what Edward really is, and then I told them that I would finish telling them the story later. Braden turned to me and said, "But what is Edward, Mom?" I said, "You'll just have to wait and see. What do you think he is?" Braden said, "A super hero, maybe incredible hulk!" So 20 minutes after I had put them to bed, Braden got up to use the bathroom and while he was on his way to the bathroom he looked at me rather intensely and said, "But Mom, what is Edward!?!" I said, "you'll just have to wait." So then he woke up from his nap and said, "Mom will you tell me what Edward is, please?" So I finished the story and told him all about vampires and told him an edited version of the story. So now he has decided that he is a good vampire like Edward and we are a vampire family. He runs around chasing Lincoln acting like he is going to bite him. Don't worry I'm not totally irresponsible, I did tell him that vampires weren't real and made sure that he understood that. At the end of the story of Twilight he asked me, "Mom, what happened to the other 2 bad vampires, the ones that were with James?" So I told him that was a story for another time. I was so surpised that he took to the story so quickly, but why should I be, IT'S TWILIGHT!!!

Stuck in a bucket

I was mopping the other day and had just dumped out the water when along came Lincoln looking for a place to sit. He ended up getting stuck in the bucket. It was just too cute!

Our Camping Trip

We recently went camping with Barry's sister Leigh in the panhandle of FL. Our campsite was right on the beach. It was so beautiful. The first night we were there, we went and watched the sunset. It was amazing. We had fun just hanging out, swimming, eating s'mores and foil dinners, and enjoying the scenery. Thanks Leigh for finding us the perfect place to spend Barry's spring break!
