I Love Canon

This weekend was a fabulous one. My sister had her first wedding shower in Hobbs and the kids and I were able to see my grandparents, Nanny and DeDad. The Clarks came into town and we had a wildly great time. There is nothing like having 4 kids ages 2 and under. It was so fun. Since my new camera stuff came in, we took LOADS of pictures.

I haven't learned how to edit yet, so maybe I will edit them later and re-post. If anyone is a pro on photoshop I am up for a tutorial.

Corbin is adorable and is so easy to take pictures of, he practically poses for you.

Needs to be cropped, but isn't she adorable?? Check out those eyes.

Mom, my bow is so big I can barely hold my head up! Brooke taught me how to make bows this weekend. Very fun.

Hope everyone had a good weekend! Ours ended with a fun birthday party for our cousin Nick. We will blog about that tomorrow.

Quote for the weekend:
She is not that greasy. On a greasiness scale of 1 to 10 she is like a 3.8.

Gavin's first Easter egg hunt, oh and I never want to be 17 again.

Gavin had a wonderful Easter. He really got the hang of hunting easter eggs and had also had a great time playing with his older cousins Nathan and Brianna. Jordan and I loved seeing everyone and played a new game, bananagrams. If you are gamers like us, you will love it and can get it on Amazon.

Enjoy the video!

Isn't my husband talented???

I am sure everyone is wondering how Seventeen Again was. If you enjoy sitting in a roomful of tweens who cheer and squeal everytime Zac Effron comes on screen, then you should definitely go. So of course Jordan had an awesome time. But really, the movie was cute. Rent it and watch it at home with no thirteen year old girls.

P.S. Thanks to The Justin Cofield Band for the music for the video. Look them up on itunes and buy there CD it's worth every penny. You'll love it.

Nana Fridays

Well, my Mom usually comes over on Fridays, but not this Friday. I know you are having grandkid withdrawals not seeing them, so here are a couple of pics.

Tonight Jordan and I are going to the movies, I am very excited. We are going to go see seventeen again. Yes, that is the movie with Zac Effron, and yes, I do really want to see it. Who wants to bet we will be the oldest in the theatre??

From "It is well with my soul":

My sin, oh, the bliss of this glorious thought!
My sin, not in part but the whole,
Is nailed to the cross, and I bear it no more,
Praise the Lord, praise the Lord, O my soul!

Drink anyone?

Madison and Gavin had bathtime together for the first time and Gavin has learned a new trick. He gets his frog toy, turns it upside down to fill it up with water, and then proceeds to drink the bathwater. Excellent. Oh, and he enjoys feeding this water to Madison also. I turned my head to grab a washcloth under the sink, turn around, and to Madison's extreme delight, Gavin is pouring water in her mouth. She had a huge smile on her face and drank it up. I am definitely not encouraging the drinking of the bathwater. After all, you do know the first thing that babies tend to do when you put them in that warm bath water.....
On a VERY exciting note....drumroll please....Gavin has been using the potty!! Not at all close to being potty trained of course, but sit him down on his potty, give him a good book, a piece of candy, his sippy cup in reach and he is good to go. He is pretty proud of himself and we are too.

Whisks are fun toys and so are bath crayons from the looks of the wall

Gavin prefers drinking out of the purple frog
Madison makes this face everytime you put food in her mouth
