Swimmy Lesson and Sprinkler Fun!

Cassidee started her "short course" in swimmy lessons yesterday. We are going every day for two weeks and so far she LOVES it. She cried when it was over yesterday (but quickly recovered when we told her she could pick somewhere fun for supper)! She's not scared, which is what I am most thankful for, and she is already jumping in off the side and going underwater.

Blurry, but she's doing one of her favorite things here.....splashing!

And since she was already in her swim suit yesterday, we went out back and enjoyed the sprinkler for a little while.

Then my little monkey climbed the ladder.



All the while, Cason just kicked it up on the rock wall!

My new hero.....

She taught me how to make bows tonight. Oh man....I am hooked!
Here is a picture of the ones I made tonight. (Amie made the giraffe and brown with swirls, so don't count those!) But look at the one in the middle. The turquoise paisley is my favorite! And, Amie was right. After every bow I made I would look up at her and say, "Oh my gosh. Look at this one. Isn't it great?!" She'd just laugh at me. With each one you get a little bit better. It is completely addicting and now I'm just trying to figure out which color combinations I want to do next.
Is anyone having a girl anytime soon?

Good thing he is cute....

.....'cause sometimes he is quite a handful!!!



There are not many things that Cason won't eat. As a matter of fact, I tried to give him oatmeal yesterday for breakfast, and that is the only food that he has turned his nose up at. He is a great eater, especially compared to Cassidee, and I usually just give him food on his tray and he is good to go. Tonight he kept fussing for more. I finally figured out why.
Check out my floor.....



I guess it's more fun to swipe your hand all over the tray than to eat the food on it!

Oh well, like I said, good thing he is cute!

After taking this picture of Cason I remembered that I had a semi-similar picture of Cassidee....
Cup in hand, but same dirty face.
Love my blue eyed babies!!!




And, totally off subject, big shout out/thank you to Amie for watching the kiddos this morning. Who knew that when you ask Amie to keep your kids you get a prize as well. Thank you for Cassidee's hair bow. I'm looking forward to the bow-making lessons!

*Dancing LIKE the Stars*

**Warning**

The video is a little lengthy, so don't feel like you have to watch the entire thing.

***An FYI***

She does her "dance" to this a minimum of 3 times a day. She'll be happy to do it live for anyone who happens to stop by our house as well.......

I don't know what the deal is.....

I can't get the pictures in the post below to load any bigger. They are still small, even if you click on them. Oh well!

Did I mention my sister is talented?!

*I have no clue why the pictures are posting so tiny....
My sister Kelsey was home from ACU this weekend. Since my sister Kayla got married and since Cason's been born we haven't taken a family picture. We decided to do them super-casual and Kelsey took them of us this weekend. She does such a good job and has a pretty good eye for photography. I love how they all turned out. I have printed most of them, and did some in black and white. Click on them to see them a little better....if you want to! :)
