Big Boy Bed

Carter is growing up quickly now that he's a big brother. He goes potty on his little toilet all the time now. When he's gotta go he says "mom, I'm peeing." His pants are dry when he wakes up in the morining most of the time. Thanks to Aunt Sandi and Uncle Ross, Carter has a big boy bed now. He slept in it all night long last night. When he woke up he said "that's fun momma." He stayed in bed all night and didn't even roll out.

Blessing Day

Easter sunday was a big day this year. We had visitors from both sides of the family here for Shyanne's blessing. It was fun to see everyone and spend a little time together. Shyanne was the center of attention and performed very well. The blessing was beautiful-- certainly an Easter to remember.

Hunting the elusive egg

We went to the big town egg hunt. Carter's friends Emma and Ben were there too, in search of some sticky prey. We had a few hang-ups as Carter was frightened by the Easter Bunny and was crying when the hunt began. He got it together just in time and ended up getting some pretty good loot. Later that day the cousins arrived so we put on a family hunt. Carter knew what the hunting was all about the second time around. A fun time was had by all.

target practice

Carter is crazy about guns...I wonder where he got that. we went to the shooting range with daddy the other day. When we got home, dad was cleaning his guns. Carter stole the bolt from one of the guns and set up his own tartet practice. He would "shoot" his gun, then put the gun down and use the binoculars to see where he had hit the target. As you can see from the photo, he was using some pretty big sound effects.


Shyanne is growing so fast! She started smiling about 10 days ago. She is pretty unpredictable with those smiles though. Of course, she smiles most often at her momma. It is fun to see her starting to interact.

On the Farm

Last week Jason had an optometry conference and was going away for a few days. Mommy and the kids decided to pack up and visit pappa Jim and nanna T. Carter had a great time riding the tractor with pappa-- just feedin' cows. He liked running in the mud puddles and seeing the little lambs. Mommy and the baby pretty much stayed inside. We had a fun time, but it sure was good to come home and see Daddy again.
