Hang Out Doods Working Together

Do you see this smile? Seriously, what a ham!

Calvin loves his dad. He will jump at the chance to be a helper for David. In this instance, mowing the lawn. Now that we actually have a lawn to take care of, it's been fun to try to make the house our own. Weeding and mowing is pretty tedious work but it's pretty gratifying at the end to sit on the patio and watch Cal and Copper play.

Provo Top Models.

My sister Andrea got a photo shoot done and the photographer wanted the shoot to look high style and kinda edgy. Andrea brought a duffle bag full of different options for the photographer to tell her what to wear and there was also a makeup artist present to make Andi look super fierce (using Tyra words, here.) And I was asked by Andrea to stick around for moral support. Andrea was looking all sorts of hot and the photographer was snapping picture after picture when she turned to me and told me to jump in! Miss Makeup Artiste dabbed a little lip gloss on me and evened out my skin tone (she made my skin look like porcelain!) and I got in some of the pictures. 

I have to work on not making my straight face. Mostly because my straight/relaxed face looks like I'm angry. But I think these ones turned out wonderful! Doesn't Andrea look awesome? I come from a good looking family. 

↑ I love a daring print! ↑ 

↑ Aw! She caught us in a laugh! ↑

We're really really really ridiculously good looking.

My brother Ron took this while we were waiting our turn to get our picture taken for family photo times in Indiana.
Pretty good for being just out of a little phone camera right? Kudos, Ron!

We're a match made in some really odd, weird kind of Heaven.

I can usually assume that Calvin's up to trouble when he's too quiet all of a sudden. But
there are other times when I find him being very quiet, I get up to look for him (to hopefully keep him from making too big of a mess) when I discover he's busying himself with a book. We've amassed quite a collection of books. And we've been taking more and more trips to the library to find a variety of books for free when our new book fund is running low. 

One of his favorites - The ABCs by Dr. Seuss

Friday the 13th is a lucky day!

It's my baby's birthday! 

If you ask him how old he is now, he'll hold up his little fat fingers & tell you that he is "fwee" years old. (That's THREE years old, if you didn't read that right.)

I try not to be a braggy mom but how can I not when he does so many cute things?!

His current favorite things include:
- Spiderman (ask him to show you his Spiderman web shooting hands)
- Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs
- Thai rice
- "Somebody That I Used To Know" and this song..  (he knows every single word)
- Big Bear (but who are we kidding? Big Bear is always his favorite)
- David's version of the Three Little Pigs
- Swimming
- Pretending to be a robot ↓ ↓ ↓

David and I agree that he's probably the cutest child in existence (we are a little bit biased..)
And we just love this little guy. Oh so very much.

D & Cal went out to Indiana just a few days earlier than I did.. Meaning I had the whole house to myself for the week with nobody to come home to or tuck in at night! What's a girl to do?

Which meant a whole lot of Skype.

Seriously, where would I be without the internet?!
