2 More Teeth

Rush has two more teeth coming in. On the top on either side of his two front teeth. He is a little fussy and always wants to be held. He is as busy as always though never holding still. 'side note...Keilei and Rush would not drink milk ever since I started giving them juice. So I let the stock up of juice depleat and didn't buy more. So now if they are thirsty they HAVE to have milk or water. Rush still won't take water. It has taken a few days but Rush is starting to take milk now.

The First Big Snow

On Tuesday the weather man said that Logan and other areas where going to have the biggest storm they have ever seen in a long time and it is suppose to start around 2-3pm, or at least I heard from husband. They let all the schools out early, even the collage, business and state services closed early. I went to fill the car with gas and moved some of our outdoor stuff to the garage.
That late afternoon it started to snow and it was really windy. I drove to my Mom's house in the snow, sliding all over. Our new car drives like crap in the snow, at least compared to our old Volvo cross country. So I didn't even get the kids out of the car. I went and told them goodnight and drove home thinking it would be snowing and blustery all day.
I woke up the next morning to find a good amount of snow on the ground but nothing more then the normal that usually happens a couple times a year. It was a huge disappointment.
The unfunny part is that of course Sean was working so I had to shovel it all. A sweet neighbor did come and plow out half of our driveway for me. Yea!
Keilei was SO excited. We got her all dressed up and went to play in the snow. She made snow angles that cover our yard. We even made a little mini snow man, it wouldn't stick together well so we didn't get to make a big one.
She loves playing in the snow and eating it. I don't have any pictures because I couldn't find my camera at the time.

Potty Training 3

Keilei is doing so well. She gets one Swedish fish if she pees in the toilet and two if she poos. We sing and dance the Dora We Did It song each time she goes. (I did it, I did it, I did it, Hooray) She also gets to put a sticker on her chart each time she goes. When she fills in a line she gets a fruit roll up. Then when the chart is full, which it should be in a day or two, she gets to got to the store and get a big toy(I think she is going to pick out a tinker bell doll). Or maybe I will take her to Ross. There was a tractor there that she really loved.

She still wears pull ups at night and durning her nap, more because I don't want to change the bed then anything. But we will work on that next. She surprisingly still does really good going even when she has a pull up on. It is usually only first thing in the morning that she as an accident.

I am so glad it is going well. I was so stressed about it but it hasn't been that bad.

Rush's Birthday

Just a couple of my favorites

Rush Stood Up (4th tooth)

Rush was leaning against something I needed so I moved it and he just kept standing there! It was awesome usually he will sit down. I was so excited.

He also has 4 teeth. He has had his 4th one for awhile I just kept forgetting to write about it. He got it the week we got back from our Arizona trip. So he got somewhere between Oct. 19-23 2010!

Turkey Cookies

We went to the store as a family and get all the stuff to make the cute turkey cookies. We went to Grandma's house to make them so Samson and Like could help. So while we made turkeys Sean watched the Gators game. Then Keilei & I went to deliver them to her friends. She was so excited.
I forgot my camera so I didn't get pictures. But they looked just like the picture except we didn't make them sitting on an oreo cookie. We just made them with one cookie so they where laying down, it was easier for the kids that way.

Thanksgiving Cutness

I so want to make thesewith Keilei

Rush's 1st Birthday

We had Rush's Birthday party at my Mom's house. I love first birthdays where they get to dig into the cake and make a huge mess. I didn't get any pictures of me bathing him off after. We did it in my Mom's big sink but he was not happy, he was tired. But this post is a picture overload. I just thought that they where all so cute. He was having so much fun.

Potty Training 2

Yesterday we didn't do too much potty training we had a really busy day with Rush's Birthday and other things.
Today Keilei only had one accident, first thing this morning. After that she went 8 times on the toilet! It was amazing! She even went poop twice!!! The second time we had just gotten back from a friends house and she had a diaper on and she said "I need to go poo poo on the toilet" She had gone a tiny bit in her diaper but finished in the toilet. I was so proud of her. We have a sticker chart and when she finishes a row she get a fruit by the foot and then when she finishes a page she gets to go to the dollar store and get a toy. She was REALLY excited about that.
Hopefully tomorrow goes as well as today....

Potty Training

Keilei has been in underwear all day. She has had four pair of messy pants, one poopy, and one puddle on the kitchen floor all before 1:30 this afternoon! She hasn't gone on the toilet once. I DO NOT have the patience for this! Potty training and pregnancy are the two things I have dreaded about having kids.

I am doing the treats
the charts
the dance & excitement
trying my best not to get upset
putting her on the toilet every 15mins
What else can I do!?!

Playing In The Leaves

We came home from church and Keilei didn't want to go inside, she wanted to play in the leaves. It was such a beautiful day I couldn't tell her no. They both had fun and I love taking fall pictures. Rush kept crawling straight for the street though, I have no idea way?
