Things My Kids Say

Just some actual conversations that have happened in our house the last few weeks.

A few gems from Sarah:

"Andrew you lost my mind" - Said in frustration when her brother was not listening to her

"If you hold a flag to your eyes, you can hear fireworks" - She was super excited about 4th of July

"I think it's probably, maybe a hippo" - When asked what her favorite animal is

"There are no medium kids, I am this big kid" (Holds hand up to the top of her head) - When asked if she was a big, medium or little kid

"Maybe you should go on bay-cation again so I can stay with Gummy" - I asked if we should all go on a vaction

"Bay-cation means riding in an airplane not driving in a car"

Sarah also has memorized lyrics to multiple One Direction songs (thanks to Aunt Codie) and can sing pretty much any of them when asked to.

Andrew's turn:

"Sissy/Daddy/Mommy hit me" - If anyone makes him angry he starts crying and goes up to the closest adult and claims that whoever it was hit him

"My hair!! *Tears*" - After witnessing his bed head in the mirror this morning

"Hi bug" *picks it up and chases sister* - A regular occurrence when playing outside

"thank you" - in place of please

"Meee-sah-boot" - I have no idea what this means but he says it and then laughs hysterically

"You E-doo" - He likes to call other people by his name and laugh

They both have this crazy little I don't know song that they sing together. It's really loud and they do it a lot! There's a link to it.

Semi-Wordless Wednesday

I realize it's been a while since I've shared some cute pictures of the kids. So here's a bunch while updating you on what's been going on in our lives .

While we were on vacation my amazing in-laws kept the kids! They had a blast and Sarah even asked if we would go on "bay-cation" again soon so she could play some more. They went to the pool and the zoo and were well loved and well taken care of.

 Sarah got her first haircut on Monday. We had been talking about it for a few weeks and she was super excited for it. She kept telling everyone it was just a little haircut! After she was all done, Andrew looked at her and said "so cute". How's that for brother/sister relationship?

Before she got it cut.

The first snips. I was pretty sad to see it go, because I remember how long it took for her to actually get hair!

Walking out of the hair salon, hand in hand. I seriously want to frame this!

Oh and here are her sweet pigtails. She's more willing to get her hair styled now that it's shorter. 

Swimming at Grammy's in the new bigger pool!

And just for fun, here's a look into what I do when I am not with the kids. I work at a local coffee shop and it's been really fun doing something for me that makes some extra cash as well!

Home Sweet Home

I'm back from vacation and it was everything I hoped it would be! Yes it was tough being away from the kids for a few days but the quality time I got to spend with my husband was so worth it! It's amazing how much time you get to talk and connect with your spouse when there are no small children clamoring for attention. And here are a few photos from the trip.
