Yucky food/Yummy food

some more random pics

These are all from a while ago:

Just a cute face :)

I remember walking into this scene and just thinking it was cute. Soon after we put a child lock on the cabinet with the cereal boxes. . .

This was really cute. I came in and Chloe and Aaron were "camping" in their room. Tents, toothbrushes, toothpaste, cup for water, and a spit cup. When I first discovered them (before I had the camera) they were brushing their teeth. But, the time I got the camera, this was them.

Just a cute pic

Our snowman.
Little bit didn't stay out very long--too cold and wet for her!

Too many video games. . . ?

The scene:
Aaron and I are at the park today playing hide n seek. The place is empty (of course, high was in the 40's today), but my crazy son and I went outside to play.

Aaron, "now it's time go to level two. We both count." yes, again, we are the only two playing.

after a round of level two. . .

Aaron, "now it's time for the hard round--level 3. We both count and hide."
Me--thinking 'um, okay, this ought to be ineteresting. . .'

I don't necessarily recommend Hide N Seek Levels 1-3, but Aaron and I, we had a good time :)

When will I get potty trained. . .

A few days ago:

Chloe, "When is Aaron going to get potty trained?"
Aaron, "I told you, before I die."


Me (being inspired from something a member of our stake presidency said yesterday during the combined 3rd hour), "Aaron, daddy's job is to go to work and earn money so we can buy food. Chloe's job is to go to school and learn. And, your job is to get potty trained so we don't have to spend money on diapers for you anymore."
Aaron, "I'm going to get potty trained when I'm a daddy because daddy's go potty all the time."
Me [insert chuckle], "Oh, well, I hope you're potty trained long before that. Ya know four-year-olds go potty all the time too."
Aaron [sheepish grin/smirk], "No, there's one four-year-old that doesn't go potty, but goes in his diaper all the time. . ."

[grrr--he's just so darn cute about it]

Oh, that's what a testimony is. . .

Me, "What do you think of when you here the word 'testimony'?"
Chloe, "Prayer"
Me, "Yes, praying is how we get our testimony."
Chloe, "No, a testimony is just like a prayer except you get to keep your eyes open. But, you still end with 'amen'."

-at least now I know she does pay some attention during Testimony Meetings at church. :)

Tonight's Family Home Evening

Opening Song, (Chloe's pick) "How Firm a Foundation" (she wants me to play it in time with it on the computer where the words show up--on, trying to play it that fast (not one I've practiced) had to leave out several notes. . .

Opening Prayer, (Aaron), "Dear Heavenly Father, please bless that we'll have a quick Family Home Evening and bless the treats. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

Lesson (Simon), "What did you learn in your class on Sunday?" (Natalie) "Did you learn about Jesus?" followed by some open ended questions and guidance on some spur of the moment lesson material. . .

Meanwhile. . . Chloe starts rolling around on the floor, laughing, "Oh, my butt." repeated over and over and over and over. . .and then Aaron (little repeat) follows suit and Emma just toddles around them laughing. . .

Natalie "Alright, time for a closing song. . ."
