We had the priviledge of being able to go see the musical Wicked again. This was our third time seeing it...but it was as good as the other two. And this time we got to go with my parents. I think they enjoyed themselves. I just wish my dad could have heard more...but he has lost some hearing and has a hard time hearing the high notes. Overall I think they enjoyed themselves. I know Bryan and I enjoyed it and enjoyed spending the alone time with my parents! Kambria and Weston stayed at MaryEllen's house until we picked them up around midnight that night!

Thanks mom and dad for a great evening!

Kambria's 3 year pictures! I LOVE them!!!
Updates on Weston: He is growing and developing so much. He is beginning to have quite the cute personality. Things he can understand when you tell him to do something: Change your pants (ie he runs to the changing table to have me change his diaper.) shut the drawer, door or cupboard. Put it back. Where are your ears, your hair, your nose, your eyes…he has been controlling his blinking now that he knows where his eyes are. He loves to give kisses…although they are quite wet!!! He can say woof for dog and LOVES to fold his arms for prayers. Half the time he reminds us it is time to pray! Even in the morning before Daddy goes to work he is at our coffee table with his arms folded! We love him and are so glad he is our little man!!!

Updates on Kambria: She is 3 with an attitude and vocabulary of a 21 year old!!! She has been asking mommy lately is she is crabby. The conversation goes something like this…
“Mom, are you crabby?” Mom says no. “ I think you are mom. You are being crabby!” Thanks Kambria!!! Also a cute thing although I think she really didn’t understand the meaning of it was a conversation about buses.
Bryan asks what bus do you ride Kambria? Which she quickly responds “The long one.” And then the question is which one does Mommy ride? “The short one.” Dad of course LAUGHS!!!! And then which one does Daddy ride? “ The long one.” Which he smirks at…Then Which one does Weston ride? “The short one because he is small.” Bryan thought it was HILARIOUS! Of course he did…unless it were reversed!

She also has been LOVING he preschool. She has been into pretending a LOT more lately because of it. She even as eating at her “restaurant” the other night when we were eating dinner. She named her restaurant “Santi-woah-to” it was very entertaining to watch.
This past Sunday we were fasting and broke our fast at grandmas house. Kambria wanted to say the prayer and so grandma helped her little bit. “Thank you that we could fast”…but Kambria proceeds to say, “Thank you that we could be fast.” Just cute in my eyes!!!

FHE ideas...

We decided that we would try and have a fun FHE by making neckalces! It turned out to be fun fun fun!!!! That is what Kambria said anyways! We didn't have fruit loops but we did have apple jacks and so used those. Kambria liked to pick out the green ones and use those. We have decided that green is her favorite color at the moment.
This is her working very hard at threading her neaklace.
This is her finished product:

Weston just had fun eating string and fuirt loops.;o)

Bryan even joined in on the fun!

More modeling!

Kambria is 3...a little late on the post

Kambria is three!
I can not believe that my baby is three already! She is growing and becoming such the lady. She keeps me hopping and going all the time. If I have spent too much time in the house she gets her shoes on and says, lets go mom…where? I don’t know. We should just go! That is my girl! She likes to be doing and going and having a grand time! We love her so much.
Her three year stats:
Height: 37.3”
Weight: 34lbs
She is in the 50% for both---just as Weston is for his age group! We have “average” children, but only average in height and weight! ;o)

She wanted a butterfly birthday so we had a “friend” party, which only turned out as having her friend Rileigh come and play.

Her “cake” was butterfly cupcakes. I thought they turned out rather well from just seeing them online She wanted green and yellow butterflies…

Kambria got so excited when we sang happy birthday to her that her eyes filled up with tears. She tried so hard to not cry, but they definitely were tears of joy! That is my girl!!! Already her heart is close to her tear ducts. (as my grandpa Don would say)

She got playdough from Riliegh...can you tell she is happy!?
Kambria also received a big comfy lounge chair from Bryan’s boss Joe and his family! Rileigh and Kambria had a great time, as did Weston and Chloe!

The next day we had my parents and Bryan’s parents come over to celebrate! It was a grand time. Kambria got a sandbox from Nonnie and Poppa and toys to fill it with from Colin and Tess!

And once again when we sang to her, she teared up! What a cutie!

She got a exercise/alphabet bike from mom and dad with some books and DVD’s to help her start learning her letters. She got a fun squishy Ball from Amanda and a camera of her own from Grandma and Grandpa.

She also got a present from Bryan's piano students. Her very own Horse!!!! Fun fun!

She had a blast having so much attention on her! We love you Kambria and are so glad you chose us for your family!
