So, I'm having another good day. Both kids are taking naps at the same time! Sometimes I don't know what to do with my free time! Other times I feel like I have too many things to do. Why can't things just balance themselves out. Maybe it's just me. Who knows. I have been thinking a lot about either selling Pampered Chef or Stampin' up. I am kinda confused right now. I love both products, so I don't know what to do! Any suggestions?

Dylan is going to be 3 soon. I can't believe how time has flown by! I got some amazing pictures of him the other day. He loves to watch cartoons and is mesmerized by them. Let me know what you think! He loves to play with his friends and started using his imagination while playing by himself. One of his favorite toys right now is his play cell phone (Go figure, right?). He takes pictures on it and pases as he talks to someone. It's really funny. If I try to talk to him he will say, "Shuh. I'm on the phone." Too cute. He loves to sing, especially when he's eating. He never wants to go to sleep, even when he's too tired to walk. He still sucks his thumb, but only when he has his burp cloth. That's all I can think of at this moment, but I'm sure theres more to tell about him.

Lauren started sitting up by herself and rolls over to her belly. Although she hates to be on her stomach, she hasn't figured out how to roll over to her back. She just screams until I flip her over. Silly girl. I think she has some more teeth coming in. She has been waking up at night, which is very unusual for her! She normally sleeps about 12 hours. I'm hoping this is just a short phase and she will return to her normal sleeping patterns soon! Her hair is so dark compared to Dylan's. I think she has hazel eyes, some day they are greenish and other days they are grayish. She does good with naps. She normally takes 2 naps a day, but when I am out running errands she does fine with just one. She started smiling funny, she wrinkles her nose to smile at you! I still can't believe that she is already 7 months old!

Wolf Lodge pics 1

Here is Dylan getting ready to go. Too bad they won't let you use your own floaties!
Lauren looked so cute in her little swim suit. It was a little big on her, but still cute!
I took a disposable camera so I wouldn't ruin my good one and the pictures turned out cute! Here is Crystal with Landen and Dylan in the water fall!

Mom had a blast with the boys! They loved the water!
How cute! I am still waiting to get more from my mom. I'll post them when I get them!

Wolf Lodge

What a busy weekend! We are just now recovering! My parents gave all of us a weekend at Great Wolf Lodge in Ohio. It's an indoor waterpark that was amazing! It was only about 3 hours away and totally worth every penny! We had a blast! Dylan loved playing with his cousins and going down the water slides. They even had little kid water slides! We are looking forward to going back sometime soon! The rooms we got were the kiddy suites. They had bunk beds for the kids and then a queen size bed and sofa sleeper in the other room. The kids even had their own tv. ( Not that we spent much time in the room.) We spent the whole time at the waterpark! In the evening, the kids got to go to the story time. They had animated trees that talk and animals that come out of the trees. Dylan loved it so much that he was still taking about it today! It's good to be home and get the kids back into their schedule! Both kids were asleep by 8:30 last night! I can't even remember when the last time that happened! I took a disposible camera so I didn't get mine all wet, so you'll have to wait to see all the cute pictures! Sorry!

Lauren has two teeth now! They seemed to come in quick! I guess time is just going by fast! We are finally all well! Knock on wood! I hope we are done with the sicknesses around here! We like to get out and do things! Dylan is getting so creative. He has a little Cars play phone that he loves right now. He goes around talking on his phone to grandma and grandpa and daddy. Then he'll come over to me and tell me to say Cheese! He won't take the picture unless you say cheese! Then he'll say, "That was a good one." The things he picks up on. So fun!

Dylan is absolutely loving the snow! We got about 6 inches the other day, and have been outside a lot! We got him some snow boots from Craigslist, and he wants to wear them everywhere! He's so cute! He used a dust pan to help daddy shovel the driveway. He is growing up too fast!
On Friday, we went to the Pacer's game in Indy. Dylan had a blast! He was allowed to yell and scream and make as much noise as he wanted to! He loved it! I didn't feel like carrying the camera in since I was carrying Lauren, so I didn't get any pictures. Maybe next time. My sister can get us some tickets so we'll have to go again soon! It was nice to have some family time together. I'm glad the holidays are over so we can spend more time as a family. Holidays in retail aren't as fun!
Lauren is feeling better. She didn't even seem like she was sick. She still slept through the night and took good naps. She is such a good baby! She got her first tooth in Sunday. She's been a little fussy with that, but that's normal. I love her cute gummy smiles!
Dylan has to get in on the action, too! What little cuties!
