Mommy's Birthday Serenade

A post from last month... on my Birthday, I made the boys their own little cakes... they wanted candles in them, of course, and they sang Happy Birthday to me. It was adorable, and SO funny... especially watching Caleb. This video shows their little personalities perfectly!

Easter 2010

I have been meaning to post these pictures for awhile now! Here are some from Easter Sunday. We had BEAUTIFUL weather! And the day was all in all pretty nice. Ok. That's a lie. It was actually kind of a bad day. Boys were a bit cranky, and I... well, I was really cranky. Seemed like a lot of things went "wrong" including me dropping the worlds best mashed potatoes on the floor and shattering the bowl they were in, just as I was carrying them to the dinner table. You know, one of those kind of days. But we managed to have fun in the midst of some mishaps, and got some cute pictures of the boys. After our church service, which was beautiful, we took them to a local Easter Egg Hunt, and they had a WONDERFUL time. They were so excited. Even though Noah is still talking about the boy with the orange basket who got so many eggs that his Mommy and Daddy should have scolded him. :o)

Family Picture after the Egg Hunt
Night before Easter, baskets all ready for our boys!!
I love the dollar store.

Cheesy Jonah. :)
Waiting to hunt for eggs! (So, the eggs were scattered all over this field... and I gotta tell you, it was like watching a swarm of locusts... they let the kids go, and they just ran in a line down the field, and not a single egg was left in their path. It was pretty funny.)

Caleb was SO excited!!!

With their loot. Again...Noah is still bitter about how few eggs he got. That boy with the orange basket... Look out. He's coming for you next year. GAME ON!

Time To Cool Off...

The other night, just before bed, I had to scold Noah for being disobedient... As I was loving on them in bed, singing our good-night song and saying our prayers...

Noah (3): Mama... I don't want you to talk to me.

Me: Why not, Love?

Noah: 'Cause when you talk to me, it makes me have more attitude.

Learning Funny

Last night, when Caleb farted...

Me: Whew! Did you just fart, Caleb?

Caleb (6) Laughing, leans in and says: I hear the cheese!
(Followed by more fits of laughter)

The Ladies Man

The other day I was sitting at the kitchen table with three of our college girls, just chatting, when Jonah (3) rode his bike up, wearing his Fireman hat (backwards) screeches right up to the table and says, in his man voice:

"Excuse me... You ladies need any help here?"

And, I might add, that if you have spent any significant time with Jonah, you know exactly what I mean when I reference his "man voice". :)
(I should also note, that DeeLee from church was unloading her car last week, and Jonah went right up to her and said "Hi! May I help you unload your car?" This little man is something else!!!)
