Update on the kiddos

Miss Rebecca has become quite the bossy little lady. She is talking up a storm and her new favorite things to say seem to be commands to John and Natalie. "Come here Naa-lee!" "No Jah, No No!" "Get out!" "No! Mine!" She is repeating everything we say and is getting pretty good at "please" and "thank you."

Natalie is my little helper. She loves to help get diapers, wipes, and pjs out, and helps John put away his toys every night (while Rebecca stands to the side supervising). She is also our little bully though. Any toy Rebecca has, Natalie takes. She also will pin Rebecca down and laugh while Becca is screaming. I find this strange since Natalie is a good 3 pounds lighter than Rebecca. She also, unfortunately has started to hit and throw things. Not all the time, and the throwing is usually from excitement and not anger, but still, we don't want that going on.

John is loving preschool. He just got 2 new kids in his class that are boy/girl twins. His teacher was telling me that she was introducing them to the class and asked John to tell the class what twins are since he has twin sisters. I guess we don't call them "the twins" very often because his teacher said he was adamant that twins were Mommy and Daddy. After she told me about it I asked him in the car on the way home about the new twins in his class. When I asked him their names he told me, "Mrs. John and Mrs. Moulder." Those are his teachers...For some reason he insists that twins are adults. :)

Family Pictures

We got family pictures taken a few weeks ago, and thanks to my new scanner I got for my birthday I can now share them with you. :)

Little Bit of Magic

Wednesday I took the kids to the Magic House. I had been wanting to take them there for some time now, but was a little nervous going at it alone. It is a big place with many ups, downs, and places to hide. We pretty much stuck to the toddler area, but even there it was hard to keep my 2 eyes on 3 kids. Rebecca was a little daredevil. She loved going through the plastic and mesh tubes and even went over the balance beam way up in the air. Natalie wasn't as adventurous and was content to carry around a couple pieces of chalk and watch. John was all over the place. He was pretty good about going to play on something and come right back to me to check in before moving on to something else.John heading up to the slide.

Natalie and her chalk

Rebecca loved this little door. When you open it up there is a little mouse family inside. She must have opened and closed that door 20 times, laughing hysterically every time she saw the mice.

Natalie playing the bells

John working in the autoshop

The one area all the kids loved was the water room.

and going through the tunnel

New Pics

I got a new camera and I am in L-O-V-E! I by no means have figured out all the settings, but I have been playing around and got a few cute ones of the kids. Hopefully I can find the time to read up on it and actually know what I'm doing when I take it off "auto".
