I got to babysit Colby and these little ones in the back were too cute to not snap a picture.
I just take pictures of him all day long. He fall asleep on the ride home from the gym, every time.
The fort in the back in under construction. It wasn't safe anymore for the swings so Phil took the slab that holds the swings on, off. Kinzi one day decided to come up with her own contraption and hooked the swings up to the fort. I'm honestly not sure how. She might have tied the ropes to the wood slats up top. But it worked whatever she did! The one she made for Baiden kept falling and I think both of them hit their bums on the wood slat on the bottom. It was still awesome to see the little wheels turning in her head.
Baiden decided to make this trip one to remember. He broke a glass soap dish (accident), found a box of pomegranates and was throwing them on the concrete getting them to break. Burned his toe and got a nice blister. And decided it would be fun to throw 4 1/2 eggs around the basement. He was down there with a friend and thought it was a good time to impress Carter. I was upstairs, outside visiting with Lauren. Grandma was upstairs and heard laughing for a good long time thinking it was kinzi playing with the toys having a good time. Carter came upstairs and let grandma know some eggs had been thrown. She went to check it out and turned right back around to get me haha!
It was so horrible that it was past the point of being mad. How to you discipline that? I didn't even yell! I think he stood in the corner or had to sit on the couch and not have any fun for a long while. Lauren was a nice friend and helped clean up the eggs, all while being pregnant. The smell was horrible and it took at least 2 hours. The eggs in the carpet (that you can't see in pictures) were by far the worst. I gagged a few times cleaning the book shelves. Something about raw egg seeping into wood smell just doesn't sit right.
I sent Phil the pictures and he just called back laughing. It was so extreme it kind of was funny in the moment too. But lets hope that never happens again.
We planned on going to Phil's 10 year reunion dinner but things weren't going as planned with it so we just did dinner the two of us.
One Sunday Kinzi helped Baiden get ready for church without me even asking. He came in and they were both so proud. I made sure to snap a picture before we changed just a few items of clothes to make it a little nicer for church.
And for being a goofball still. I needed to distract her because I had a Christmas present I didn't want her to see. I handed her my phone and said, "take some pictures of yourself"
Then there is Kinzi. Born to entertain. She was asked to do her first official for the program a few months prior. A few weeks before I got a call from the Sunday School teacher asking if Kinzi would come sing a few songs for the adult Sunday school class. She came highly recommended by the Primary President. The song was "I know that my Savior Loves me" and she really does sing her heart out in that song. The lyrics are a little tricky so it was impressive how well she knows it. So the week before the program she sang that and "I am a child of God" for our Sunday School lesson and that was her first official solo. Then the week after she did her solo for the program, the first two lines of "I know that my Redeemer lives" and it was the best she's ever sang. She sounded so grown up.
There were too many cute ones of them to pick only one.
No worries though she didn't mess up ;)
