Claire Funnies..

Claire Funnies...

I am so thirsty mom. Just look at my tongue, doesn't that just look like a thirsty tongue.

Claire looks at my chest and then down and hers and then mine again and says "I got to get me some of those".

Playing Candyland with Claire and she starts to shuffle the cards
Claire: Wait for me to crumple the cards.
Me: shuffle the cards
Claire: Oh, okay. Wait for me to Shuff the cards.
Me: No, Babe. Its called Shuffle.
Claire: Oh. Well wait for me to shovel the cards.
Me: Shu-ffle
Claire all frustrated: Mom, Im trying to dig the cards!!

Valentines Day

We love Valentines day around our house. Love making valentines. Love delivering valentines. And of course we love receiving valentine treats.

This is what I woke up to on Valentines Day!! Yep, I think my man kinda loves me.

She was so excited for me to do her hair in hearts.  It's funny that four years ago I was terrified of having a little girl for one simple reason....I would have to do her hair.  Four years ago I couldn't even do pigtails.  I'm not kidding either.  Well look how far this momma has come since then. 

Claire had school that day and she was so excited for her Valentines party.


Claire's Valentines

And once she got home from school we went around the neighborhood delivering valentines.  Crue was perfectly happy because all day long his big sister would stuff candy in his mouth.

Happy Birthday

I always knew that Luke would be a good husband and father but he is even better than I could have possibly imagined.  Claire just adores him,  he constantly spoils me and treats me so good, and Crue loves playing with him.  He is the ultimate handyman.  He is a pretty good at baking too.  Claire practically follows him around when he is home.  And it was his birthday last week.    Happy Birthday Baby!  We love you so much. 

He has tea parties with Claire

He loves playing with the kids.  Out of the two of us he is definately the "fun" parent. 

He can make an awesome snowman

And this year I surprised him with a little getaway for his birthday.  For weeks I had it all planned out and I was so excited when I realized it would really work out.  I dropped the kids off at my moms and had my brother take me out to Luke's worksite right as he was getting off.  His face was priceless when I told him we were getting away for the night.  We had a blast!!

He gets all the girls

A few weeks ago we had Brooke and Payton over at our house while their parents went to a movie.  Luke went into the other room to put a movie on for them and pretty soon I could hear them fighting over who got to sit with Luke.  Lucky him....he ended up with all three.

Aerospace museum

Boredom hit our house last Saturday so once our little buddy woke up from his nap we headed to the Hill Aerospace Museum.  It has been on our list of things to do/places to go for several years and now we can check it off.   

Our little guy loved riding in the stroller and looking at everything.  He is always so good no matter where we happen to go.

It was neat looking at the different airplanes, helicopters, and bombs and learning about how they were used in the different wars.
Claire being an airplane.
We were amazed at how many airplanes they had on display
Claire not being very happy that I wanted to take her picture.
But she loved climbing on this airplane
My and my little man.
But this was definately the hit of the day.  We could have just brought a jar full of coins and Claire and Crue would have been entertained for hours watching them go round and round.

Crue at 11 months

- He is walking all over the place
- He officially had three teeth...and one more that is taking its own sweet time
- He had his first sucker. Bad, I know!! But his momma accidentally left home without his bottle and had to make him happy somehow. And trust me...that sucker made him happy!!
- He got moved up to a new car seat and he looks so big in it.
- His favorite rooms in the house are the panty and the bathrooms. Of course the two places I don't want him to play.
- He loves bath time!!
- His favorite activity is to take all the pots and pans out of the cupboard and then climb in.
- His second favorite activity is to unearth all of my plants he can get his little hands on.
- He is still a total momma's boy and I love it.
- He likes turning the lights off when we leave his bedroom.
- His favorite foods include pears, squash, beans, carrots, peas, bananas, crackers, pasta, and cheese. He is so over pureed baby food and won't eat it.
- Daddy gave him his first real haircut and we took about 1.5 - 2 inches off. The trimmers must have tickled his head because he was laughing so hard the entire time.
- He gets so mad if you eat in front of him.
- He also can throw a really big fit when he gets kicked out of the bathroom and pantry.
- He loves to go on walks.
- He makes us so incredible happy.
