becoming my mother

I am one step closer to becoming just like my mother.  Which, for the record, is not so bad a thing.  Last night I bought my very first house dress.  Yes, a moomoo type thingie.  However you spell moomoo.  Is that how you spell it?  Is it suppose to be named after a fat cow...b/c that's how I feel wearing it.  But it's oh so comfortable...ahhh.  My mom wears one all the time in the mornings.  I needed one too b/c it's too warm to wear my bulky robe, but I need something in the morning to wear before i'm ready to get dressed for the day, you know?  So, I'm wearing it comfy.  Dan just laughs and calls me Rebecca.  I guess I am turning into my mother.  I love you Mom!!

No...there will be no pictures for this post...I know you were going to ask!

These kids....

...sure are crazy!

Carson and his friends thought it would be a good idea to "catch the monster" with a spool of my thread...nice.

Bryn and Carson love to help Daddy with the yard work. 
My friend (yeah, the one that gives us EVERYTHING!) gave us two bikes for the kids...yeah!  Brynlee loves her new girly bike with princess helmet and everything!

Bryn loves to make faces for the camera...she looks so old!

I'm not sure why Carson's knee is up on the table while he draws...funny kid!

getting smarter

We had a great Easter last weekend!  We spent it with some awesome friends!  There was ham, potatoes, brocolli salad, rolls....and even a chocolate chicken, yes you heard me right...a chocolate chicken!!!  The kids LOVED playing in Mary and Randy's huge backyard and had a blast finding eggs that we had hidden for them.  It was a great day! 

Carson is getting smarter these days and it's so fun to watch!  He is learning to sound words out and read.  You can actually see him working on a word and then it suddenly "clicks" and he gets it. It's so cute how excited and proud he gets when he reads a word.  We like to use our alphabet magnets on our fridge to spell out some simple words for him.  After doing that for about a half hour today he sat down to actual write some words.  He's never tried to just write words on his own before.  He wrote something on the paper and then showed me and asked "does this say apple?".  He had written "APOL".  I know, you're thinking...that's not right Lynette...but, wasn't that a great try?  He's got the idea down.  Then I told him how to really spell it and so he changed his "O" to a "P" and added an E at the end.  Pretty smart kid!  Here's his paper, if you look closely you can see where it originally said APOL.  I'm excited for him to learn more and start kindergarten in the fall (I still can't believe that!).

Also, here is a sneak peak of some pictures my friend Jen took this week for our shop.  Aren't they awesome!  My models were perfect!
