How To Get a Kid to Eat An Apple!! & And Other Random Pictures

Today I was talking on the phone with my mom. Emma came over and was bugging me for a snack. I told her to go and get a muffin off the counter. Apparently muffins aren't snacks! I haven't been to the grocery store for a while because we are going on holidays this Sunday and I'm trying to use up what we got. So anyways my mom told me to make Emma an Apple Bird. Its amazing she ate the entire apple.
I haven't put up any pictures of the kids for awhile. Emma is still very into dressing like a princess... only she comes up with her own outfits. The outfits are very pretty! Tobin is my big boy. He had his 6month shots yesterday. He now weighs 23lbs 2oz. We actually had to go and buy a bigger car seat for him yesterday because he is too big for the other one. He has started on solid food and what can I say ... He loves it. It feels like I just had Tobin and he is already 6months old and the size of a toddler! I love my kids so much.

I remember going on fishing trips with him and loving to just hang out and be with him. He has taught me so much and I thank him for that. I hope that my kids get to have some of the same experiences that I had with my Dad with there's. I also hope that they will get to have some fun times with there grandpa that I had growing up. I hope that they realize how wise there grandpa is and can have a great relationship with him. I love you so much Dad!

We've Come To A Decision!

Over the last month I have been doing some real thinking. Yes we have been saying for a long time now that we want to move out of Fort McMurray and be closer to family. It would be great to be closer to family and one day we still want that but right now we aren't going to be going anywhere. I was think about where I want to be. The weirdest part about that was I couldn't picture us down south yet. All I could think about was staying up here in Fort Mac. So me and Travis made the decision that we are going to be here for at least another 10 years! I know SHOCKER!! I know some of you are like "ya we figured you would be here for that long!!" Anyways we have been looking into building a house. We are out growing this one and kept telling ourselves that if we were here for only 3 more years we could tough it out. Well 10 years is pushing it to tough it out. We are running out of space and if we add another kid in a few years we're going to be really squished. This October we can sell are house. We have been looking like crazy lately into all the builder up here and have picked out a few floor plans. We have some more to check out today. We were looking at show homes the other day and I totally fell in love with a house. I loved everything about it... except for one thing... the price. It was only $959 000!!!!! Of course it was because it was almost perfect! It could very well be my dream house one day. I'll update you more about are house search over the next few months. Oh ya and are Florida trip that we were going to take... well I had to choose a new house or Florida... Ummm I'm not dumb I obviously I'm going to chose the house! Here's to 10 more fabulous years in Fort Mac!!!

Things Kids Say!!

You know how kids say things just the way they are. Well let me tell you 2 things that Emma has recently said. I like how people have written the dialogue like a script so here you go.

Me: Good girl Emma for pooping in the potty.
My sister ( she is on the phone with me): Was it a big poo?
Me: Yup it was a pretty big log.
Emma: It's not a log mommy, it's a poop!

Ya that was pretty funny and is one of her quotes that I don't think I'm going to ever forget!

Then today we were all laying on my bed and Travis had just gotten out of the shower and had on a pair or shorts with no top, he has some chest hair! This is how this conversation went.

Emma: You gots lots of hair Daddy.
Travis: Yup I do
Mom: Ya he's got a lot. Hey Emma we should put pony tails in it.
Emma: No put messy buns in it.
Mom: Ya those are better than just pony tails.

Anyone that knows Emma knows that is her favorite way to wear her hair. Needless to say we never did get any pictures of messy buns on Travis's chest, but it would have been funny to see. From the mind of a 3 year old. She is also quite into her dress up clothes. I found her one day dressed a little swanky too... I got mad at her and told her to put her clothes back on. She had no idea what was wrong with what she was wearing. Try and picture this... She had all her clothes off except her panties and then she was wearing a little black tutu as a skirt then she has this little purple tulle fairy skirt( totally see through) and she was wearing it as a tube top! Honestly I have no idea where she came up with that outfit, it sure wasn't from me!!! Emma and her dressing up are a whole other post! The things they do. On another note she is fully potty trained and has been wearing panties to be now for the last 2 nights dry, her pull ups have been dry every night for the last hmm I don't know how many months. She is great... I love her to bits and there is never a dull day when she is around!
