Today we took a ton of pics of the kids. They were so good and had so much fun playing in the leaves and running around at the park. Camden is at such a fun age! I love all the giggles and smiles he gives us! oh and the squeals too. Those are heard everywhere. I hope you like the pics. Maybe posting this many pictures will make up for my lack of posts the past month. LOL

So I have been MIA the past week or so... We have had a lot going on. Aus turned two on Tuesday (4th) we had a birthday party for him on labor day. It was a lot of fun. He got spoiled by his daddy. Andrew called me from Walmart saying "hey hun, I think I may have gone over board." I asked him why and he said... "well, I am on my way out to the truck to empty the cart with the toys in it, then I'll go back in to get the groceries and the rest of the stuff" Holy crap!!! He got him a bike, little aus size foam couch, Lincoln Logs, helmet and knee pads for his bike, little construction equipment toys and a couple of other small things for the bath tub!! Austin had a great time opening his presents and playing with the toys. I took some pics but havent downloaded them to my computer yet. I'll do that later. Until then here are some pics of Aus and Cam enjoying his new little couch.
I have also been potty training Austin!!! YAY for Aus!! He is potty trained now. He is so good about it. He will even hold it when we are driving or gone for most of the day and he has a diaper on. He is such a big boy and smart too. He learned really quickly! We only had about 4 accidents. There might be more to come but so far so good! We're so proud of him!!
My mom, sister and I spent a day canning peaches. It was fun and I feel so domestic! ha! WE canned some and froze some and made jam and nectar out of it! In Rachael Ray's words YUM-O!! I only came away with one cut this year on my thumb. I think I'll can some good hearty stew for the winter!
Another thing that we've been up to is planning a trip back to PA to visit my husbands family (he is from there) we were supposed to leave early this morning but things keep pushing it back. Some people may say they own a company but I think its the company that owns you. So we have had to push it back to make sure things will run smoothly while he is gone. We will most likely leave next weekend. The good part is that we are driving back and we are taking our Condo Semi to pull our new camper (we got a GREAT deal on it) the semi has bunk beds and you can stand all the way up. It also has a fridge and a bunch of other cool features to make it a more comfy trip for all of us. Don't worry Andrew is installing the hooks for the kids car seats. We will most likely leave next weekend
So things have been pretty busy around here as you can tell. I hope you enjoy the pics!

Okaye Alida, here ya go :)
1: If you could be anything you wanted to be...absolutely anything...What would you be? (You can not say mommy or wife....this is a dream job okay?!)
If I had any job it would be to be Mariah Carey... For some reason when I was younger it was very well understood that I would need to take her place. I truely did believe this. I also believed I was good enough to take her place. I would daydream about what I would do with the money I would earn and what outfits I would wear. So I guess to this day I wouldnt mind being Mariah Carey (with a little more class and modesty) and singing with such an amazing voice.
2. What is your favorite verse of scripture and why?
I dont exactly have one favorite verse... I like the whole story of the Brother of Jared. I have always liked that story because I tend to be the one that prays and asks Heavenly Father to tell me what to do, rather than thinking of what I can do and then asking him to help me where I fall short. There are many lessons in that story but this is the first one I learned and that stood out to me.
3. What has been your greatest joy as a mother, so far?
I love to watch my kids smile and laugh. I think they are so cute. I am such a proud Mommy when others cant get over how cute our kids are too. I love when other people play with my kids just to get them to laugh and then they start laughing as a result of my kids laughing. Its so much fun! I dont think there is just one great moment for me though. I just love seeing them happy and loved.
4. What is one of your guilty pleasures?
Sweets. Definitely sweet foods. I LOVE me some sugar!! I have to make sure I dont pass all the goodies when I'm grocery shopping cause they are just so dang tempting.
5. What is your most favorite childhood memory?
I have so many but I think the most fun I had was when Kira, our friends and I would make up plays, dances or anything else to entertain the neighborhood. We had a downstairs apartment so our living room window was ground level and it was a good size. we would invite the entire neighborhood to come and sit in front of our window and watch us perform. Serious fun let me tell ya! Even when we moved from there we still put on shows for our parents or just put on shows... nobody watching.

He had written all over the door as far as he could reach. This is just the doorknob area, it was all over but wouldn't show up very well unless it was close up. He also drew all over the garbage can and wall behind the garbage can
And here is what he did when I told him that it was naughty
He spit at me!! Oh my GOSH kid! He couldn't have cared less that he was in trouble. I guess the fun was worth it. And I couldn't help but laugh when he spit. So there went that discipline.
This is the reason he got locked in the bathroom in the pack'n'play in the first place
He wrote in crayon all over Andrews bids. You can see it very well but he unrolled some and colored all over them and others he just painted the whole thing (rolled up) one color. I'm glad Andrew has a good sense of humor.
This is him laughing and singing after I left the room to come and post this. I tried to catch him singing. Adorable right?
Thankfully Camden is still asleep. But Aus is yelling "uh-oh" again and "Mom... mere (come here)"
Did I seriously have two of these 18 months apart? What am I in for?????
Doesnt he look so cute and innocent? Sleeping like a rock!
