We’ve been back and forth from the Springs every couple of days since I last posted. The Thorn set is looking really great. We have tickets for the last show, the night before Easter! They put us up for the night in the World Prayer Conference Center because Papa Bear was volunteering two days back to back. The room was really nice, and the girls and I enjoyed just hanging out, and doing each other’s hair.
I can’t believe that Easter is almost here. And it will be summer soon! It already feels like a perfect mountain summer. If it never got a degree warmer (or colder!) that’d be OK by me. Last night we built a fire in our fire bowl, and let the kids play outside until bedtime. We had planned to roast marshmallows, but were having so much fun just swinging in the swing, and hanging out outside, that we never made it to the store. We had mini-marshmallows, but I didn’t think I could find a thin enough stick!
((Hey Mom, I think that we’re just going to take your camper and travel the world! After such a long winter, it sure does feel good to be outside. No one wanted to sleep inside last night! Papa Bear almost convinced me to just hook up the monitor, so that we could sleep in the camper and put the kids in the house:) ))
Mom and Dad were here last weekend, and we had a good time with them. Tiny Dancer just squealed and squealed when she saw her Uncle Stephen! He is the world’s best uncle. Mom bought the girls the cutest swimsuits, and a bunch of pool gear, for their birthday. I don’t have pictures of them wearing them yet though, cause Brian and I went to church while Mom, Dad, Uncle Stephen, Uncle Michael, and cousin Gabriel went swimming. I brought along the camera, but forgot to take it out of the van before we left! We’re gonna set up the kiddie pool soon though, so I’ll post pictures then.
Every day someone does something new, so as of March 23, 2007, here’s the latest.
Tiny Dancer shakes her head “yes,” really slowly, when you ask her if she’d like to do something that she really wants to do.
Cuddle Bug’s response to this same question is, clapping, a huge cheesy smile, and a loud chorus of, “Yea!!!”.
Lil Prince is still delighting in stealing baby sister’s pacifier, but we have yet to get it on camera.
Bay Bit has almost caught up with Lil Prince in height and weight, and is giving him a run for his money in every way.
CB and TD’s new favorite word is, “monkeys”. Any movie or cartoon with a monkey in it is an instant hit! Of course, the same goes for Papa Bear. Ha.
If CB is a gymnast, and she is, TD is an escape artist/magician. A couple of nights ago, we were driving back from the Springs around the girls’ bedtime. Tiny Dancer started crying, so I climbed back to the back of the van to see if I could help make her more comfortable. I adjusted her socks, gave her some milk, offered a cracker, gave her a blanket and Hobbies (her stuffed tiger that looks like the comic book Hobbs). Nothing seemed to help, so I climbed back to the front to let her work it out on her own. She wailed and wailed! I don’t know how long she cried, but she was definitely pitching a record breaking fit. Then it stopped. “Ahhhhh” we sighed, but too soon! After about a two minute break, she started in again. This cry was totally different that the last though, so I climbed back to the back again. Apart from her diaper, she was now totally naked! No socks, no pants, NO ONESIE, that had been completely snapped up! This time she was crying because she was cold! Luckily, I had the camera with me so that I could document this unbelievable achievement! Don’t you think her friends are going to all enjoy seeing this someday!
