It's official

It is official, Kali loves these two fingers! For awhile she went back and forth between her thumb and these fingers. Then about a month ago she made a choice. She is such a good good baby. She can soothe herself and when she is really tired she just wants to lay on her belly and suck her little fingers. She takes after me because when I was a baby I sucked the same ones.
Here are a few other pictures of her just because
I think she is the cutest little thing!

Only candy

The kids went and picked out their cards and treats for the Valentine's party at school. Kyron informed us that he is ONLY going to give candy away. He will not even be writing his name on it either. He doesn't want anyone to know that they are from him. When I asked him why he only wanted to give candy and no cards he said, "because someone really might think that I want them to be mine, or that I think they are sweet or something like that. They might take it serious and I don't want anyone to think that I like them."

I had to just laugh.
I am so glad that he doesn't like girls....yet!
(at least I don't think he does)
He said, "Mom you can just be my Valentine!"
I love that he wants me to be his Valentine.
I know it won't last forever so I better enjoy it!

This weekend the boys wanted to walk to the park, all by themselves. This is just one of the perks to living in a small town. While we were living in Las Vegas and Flagstaff this would have never happened. The park is probably a little over a mile. Anyway, before they left I was giving them the stranger talk. It went down something like this...

Me: Boys watch out for strangers.

Kyron: Mom, we know, we know (sigh).

Me: Okay, just checking.

Kason: Mom, we live in a small town now and we don't have to worry about strangers anymore.

Me: I know, but you never know. You still have to be so careful.

Kyron: We are careful Mom.

Kason: A stranger might pull up in a car and say, "so you want some candy?"

Kyron: And we'll say no way and just keep walking.

Me: That's right, never ever go near a strangers car.

Kyron: They might say we have a puppy, come see it and we'll say no way and run home.

Kason: No, I'd say, oh yeah show me your puppy first.


Kason: giggle giggle

I think Kason needs a little more work on stranger danger!
He gave me a good laugh that's for sure!

Little piggies and a turtle named Squirt

Kenzi loves to get Kali all dressed up.
She even loves to paint her little piggies.
Aren't they SO cute?We have a new tiny pet.
His name is Squirt.
We bought him off the side of the road in New Mexico.
Not sure if he is legal or not but the kids are sure loving him.

We all hope he will survive Kooper!
