The other morning after breakfast I was going to get Lily and Hayden dressed and I couldn't find Lily. I go into our bedroom and she's in my closet messing around with my shoes and purses. She doesn't hear me and is busy snooping away.

I'm sitting on the bed watching and listening to her pull down my clothes and get into my purse. She's pushing the buttons on my phone and giggling, having a good time. I very quietly say "Lily...where are you??" She then lays down real quiet and doesn't move for several minutes.

Finally, she's sees me and jumps up. She's a cute little stinker isn't she??

Disney World

In 6 weeks we will be on a jet plane heading to DISNEY WORLD!! We're staying at the Caribbean Beach Resort on the property for 7 nights/8 days.

All 5 of us are very excited and counting down the days. I think Hayden is the most excited though. Every few days he wants to watch the Disney vacation planning DVD and talks about going to see Mickey, Pluto, Buzz Lightyear and The Lion King (which he calls Lion, The King)

While there Anders and I will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. I think this is going to be a great place to spend it.

We were on the way to the meeting and I thought that I would take a picture of these two in their new clothes. This was not an easy task...trying to get them to look at me, smile at the same time, hold still and then Lily pulled her hair bow out. (That's what she's twirling around on her finger.)

At least they look adorable!!!

Take a Nap

The other day around lunchtime Hayden was being a real stinker. He wasn't listening and had a grumpy attitude. What he needed was to take a nap but he didn't like the sound of that and was then REALLY grumpy.

When I got him in his bed he told me he wasn't laying on his pillow trying to test me. I told him that's fine with me, that he didn't have to lay on his pillow but he did have to lay in his bed and not get up.

About 30 minutes later I went in to check on him and this is what I saw. It just cracked me up as you can see that he's NOT laying on his pillow but he did fall asleep which is what he needed.

The Line Up

Ok Pez dispensers, all of you have been charged with taking up room in the cabinet. None of you have any candy inside anymore, so some of you will be sentenced to go to the junk drawer.

Now...turn to your left...

...and now turn to your right...

...Hello Kitty, please come forward. You are my favorite and it's my kitchen so you may stay with me. The rest of you Pez...move along quietly to the drawer. You may get to come out again if we have more candy.

The Farmer in the Dell

"The Farmer in the Dell" is one of Haydens favorite songs. He sings it all the time but he's got the lyrics a bit mixed up.

He sings "the farmer takes a wipe." I asked him one day after he finished singing what does the farmer take? He wiggled his head and raised his hands and told me "he takes a wipe, for his hands."

LOL...what could I say after that?

Hello Again...Hello

Sorry about being such a bad blogger. Life is keeping me very busy. I work in the Emergency Room in Patient Registration and it's been crazy with the multitudes of people coming in each night. All is going ok on the home front. It seems each week one of us is feeling icky and at the moment it's Anders. He has a cold going on.

I need to upload pictures and do some posts on our family. We made our reservations for Disney and bought the plane tickets, so we're officially going on vacation in January. I can't wait and I'm counting down the days.

This Vans A Rockin'

Those who know Hayden know that he's an outgoing funny little boy. Full of life and loves to sing.

I have this CD in the van which is a whole lot of kids tunes such as Farmer in the Dell, Oh My Darlin', Row-Row Your Boat...etc.

It was just he and I this afternoon out running errands and he was singing his heart out in the back of the van. When the song ended and was going to the next tune he tells me "Mommy, this vans a rockin"

Rock on little man...rock on!!

New Toy

Ok...momma has a new toy and LOVES it!!

Our 2-year plan was up with Sprint. We knew we were going to switch to AT&T but I just wasn't sure about getting an iPhone. I just didn't understand what all the hype was about it...I mean it's just a phone.

Now that I have it...OH MY!! I love it and I love that it's an iPod and camera also. I've been playing with it since I've got it in my hot little hands. :-)

Growing Again

On Monday we went for Lily's 18 month "Well Baby" appointment. She got one shot and is growing and developing right on target.

She seems to be a bit advanced on her speech. He was asking what words she can say and I was telling him everything. He asked if she could say any two syllable words. She can say momma, daddy, see that and the day before she said wow-wee. As soon as I told him that she yelled out wow-wee. It was so funny!! Here's her current statistics:

Weight: 23.6 lbs (36% percentile)
Height: 32 3/4 inches (87% percentile)

Missouri Botanical Gardens

A few weeks ago while in St. Louis, Lily and I went to the Missouri Botanical Gardens. It was BEAUTIFUL. I'd love to go back in the spring to see all the flowers in bloom. It was such a peaceful place to visit.

18 Months Old

I'm a little late in posting but Lily turned 18 months old on September 14. I can't believe that my baby girl is 1 1/2 years old. Where is the time going?!?! I want it to slow down.

These are just a few pictures from the Missouri Botanical Gardens in St. Louis. I went with hopes of getting some good pictures but his little girl was on the move non-stop.

I'll post more pictures later on this week. This was a beautiful place to visit. I can only imagine the beauty in the springtime when everything is in full bloom.
