My Boys

I was just looking through all my pictures and found some gems. I haven't really been in the mood to just do a journal post, so here it goes. If you don't love my kids you better stop reading now:)
Since the weather has turned super nice we spend most of the day outside. I overheard Drew telling a friend "Ya, I know, I guess we just don't get weeds in our yard" Are you serious? The boys play and I weed. We are happier outside, doing what we like to do best, digging.
Boys in the backyard playing with Mason and Coolidge Grigg. Mac had success finding worms while the others caught flies.


Still loves dinosaurs but is getting more interested in other things like volcanoes and the series Life. He asks for the "scary stuff" which means animals fighting. Should I be worried? He's becoming a helper. Instead of bugging G (there's still a fair share of this) he tries to make G happy. He dances, sings, and comes up with activities G would like. He's growing up too fast. His new favorite questions to ask people are "What's your favorite color?" His is orange and "How old are you?" and follows up with "Oh, I'm 3 and my dad is 27!" For some reason he can't remember my age. He loves primary which is a nice recent change. Has memorized the first article of faith and I hear him singing "He sent His Son" as he's playing. His favorite song in the car is "Bullet Proof" by La Roux. He dances with his eyes closed and his fingers in the shape of what he calls the peacock. When he's not doing any of this he's wrestling and wanting to play catch. Yesterday Mac jumped on me and put his hands around my neck, I told him to stop he was hurting mommy and he said "Mom, I just choking you." like, what's the big deal I see all the time on Kung Fu Panda. Crazy kid!!

Is becoming less clumsy which is a blessing to us all. He's talking a ton. My favorite lines are..."Get it!...Now!", "Mac!", "I'll get it!" ,"Watch it, again" , "Mom, look, Dad" (every time Drew gets home) He always says thanks and when he sees a bug he says "mom, (blows a raspberry)" every time. Gray loves cheese which doesn't help with his constipation problem. He's a hoarder of all things, food, and toys. Always hiding things and lining them up, letting no one get to his things. This kid loves family night. The minute we mention FHE, G runs to his spot on the couch in the front room and yells for us until we sit down next to him. He loves singing "Do as I'm Doing" and "The Itsy Bitsy Spider." G's favorite song in the car is "Break your Heart" by Taio Cruz. The minute we get in the car he says "Break your heart" over and over again until I put it on. G is a happy fun loving kid that has a hard time focusing and never really slows down. He laughs constantly and can be talked into doing anything his brother wants him to do. Yesterday it was throwing rocks at the sliding glass door while Mac sat back and giggled. It's amazing how much love I have for these two boys!
The boys were wearing the same shirt today, so I thought I would take a few pictures. Then I remembered why I don't do this...
After Mac said, " I was cheesing really hard mom" Yes you were Mac!

Mac more excited about the hug than G.
