We had some visitors over and of course A and E were bouncing off the walls. Head butting their legs, jumping on their back and freaking out. So I chucked them both in the kitchen and told them, "You are out of control." Angrily A turns to me, hands on his hips and snaps, "No Mom! YOU are out of control!"

A comes up to me and tells me very officially, "Mom, I'm smarter than you. I'm not smarter than Dad, but I am smarter than you."

A and E were wrestling today and it was A's day. He was doing really good keeping his little brother subdued, although E put up a pretty good fight. Once they were finished, Daddy and I told E he did a really good job! He looked over at Daddy M angrily from the floor and said, "No, I din not!!" he flailed his arms on the ground and continued, "He's still alive!"

E and A were playing T-ball today with A's new gear. I of course laid down the rules. No hitting anyone with the bat. No swinging at the ball until every body and body part is clear. Simple enough. Not 5 minutes into it, I hear a blood curdling scream from A. E runs inside, eyes big, and says, "I din'n know what I was doing!" Big brother had a pretty good goose egg on his head.

Thanks for the Help

The hunter

Has it been forever since I've posted on here? I think it has. I just haven't had much to say. I've been crazy busy with school. My lovely sister moved in with us until she finds a place to live here in Utah. We went to Boise for Memorial Day. I didn't take any pictures!!! What was I thinking?!?! We had a lot of fun though. We ate, we drank....water, we slept, and played! My cousin Jon had his farewell talk that Sunday. He is going to serve a mission in Guatemala. The poor kid is going to get roasted! He's a red-head. There is no hope for his fair skin! Speaking of skin roasting. I can finally feel the effects of summer. Its actually warm outside and I'm pretty sure its not going to SNOW again, like it did the end of May.
McKay and I are so excited for this warm weather. We have camping trips we want to go on. There are swimming pools we haven't defiled yet with our children. There are walks in the canyon that need to be taken! It's going to be so much fun! And having Melissa and Corinne here to enjoy some of these activities with us will make it all the more exciting!

Random note, I haven't seen Ethan in about 5 days and you wouldn't believe how much can change in just 5 days. He's saying my name clearer, he can sign, 'more' and understands what it means. AND he has a new love for yogurt. Or better yet an old love reignited and magnified. Today after Melissa and I went on a beautiful walk to the BYU campus we decided we were starving and opened the fridge. Ethan was also starving. As soon as he heard the fridge door make its blessed welcome sound of opening, he ran his little bum over; squeezed between Melissa and the door and stood himself right in front of the display of food. He quickly grabbed a yogurt and said 'day-dooo' (thank you), thought for a second and grabbed another one. Satisfied he evily laughed and ran off with his prey. There was no stopping him. Those yogurts never had a chance. They were doomed from the moment I bought them.

YOGURT ROCKS! makes me laugh that he just gets in the fridge to snag it : )
It was fun to see Ethan for a bit before they left to come back to Utah. He is a cutie.
He was fighting with Skooter over one of the chew toys. He hollered at him and tugged on the toy. Skooter tugged back... Pretty cute.
Love ya MOM
