I always forget to write down the funny things the kids say, but this was just too funny.  I've been wanting to blog it, so here it is.

Hunter and Rylie were watching Toy Story 3 the other day.  He's been asking so many more questions since starting kindergarten.  Here's our conversation.

Hunter: "Mom, am I going to go to college when I get bigger?"

Me: "Do you want to go to college when you get bigger?"

Hunter: "Yeah, I think I do."

Rylie: "When I get bigger I'm going to be a horse."

Hunter:"Rylie, people can't be horses."

I'm just relieved they didn't say they wanted to sit on the couch and play video games all day!

It's been awhile..... here's some of our more recent pictures and a video :)

Hunter checking out his lunch on the first day of school while he waited for the bus.

Getting on for the first time!

Rylie wanted to go on the bus too, but she was also excited about getting a new teacher at daycare.  After we got home there were a couple of hours until Hunter got home from school and she spent much of it like this....
I think she's starting to get used to all of the alone time with mom and dad now, but she still misses having big brother home with her.

Tonight was our first event at school, the ice cream social.  The kindergartners all performed- one song from each class.  It was really cute.  Here's Hunter's class...

It's almost summer.....

I was looking through pictures the other day and came across some videos of the kids from a couple of years ago. It made me realize that we really need to get the video camera out more because they are changing so fast and it's so hard to remember what they were like even just a year ago.
I love how they get along most of the time, and it's so funny to listen to them carry on a conversation like 2 adults. They talk about funny stuff too.Hunter is all registered for kindergarten. I think his school year starts on August 11 or something like that. I can't believe he's starting school already.
Rylie is turning into a helpful girl. They have been keeping their room clean lately and she is at the age of trying to help with everything. They both have the competitive genes, wanting to be the first one to the door everywhere we go. Then trying to be the first with the seat belt, and first to finish whatever. It's exhausting.
We had Rylie's birthday party a couple of weeks ago. Her theme was princess and the frog. We had a bouncy house and the kids all had a lot of fun. It was really warm that day so they got to test out the new sprinkler she got for her birthday. My kids have not stopped wanting to play in the water every day since.Cuddlebug Babies is growing faster then I could have hoped or imagined. I have been so busy making baby stuff and monogramming for people that I don't have time for many of the things I used to, which mostly included too much computer and TV time anyway. I've added shopping carts to my Facebook fan page and I'm in the process of finding a new and functional website design. I can't seem to get everything to work on the websites I try, so it's taking me a while. It would probably help if I knew a little more about web building.
Seth has started a new hobby as well. He bought a Jet mini lathe and has been making pens out of wood. There are so many different things he can make with that tool, it's got endless possibilities.

Updates for the New Year

I was just looking at pictures from Christmas and I thought I'd share some. I put most of them on facebook but I know there's a few of you who are still avoiding that sink hole (and if you're one of them, just stay away, it's nothing but a gigantic addictive waste of time-which I can't seem to pull myself away from).
So here goes, a little show and tell-
Rylie got some really cute outfits, Princess dress up set, and a new tricycle. She loved it all!
Hunter's big gift was a Nintendo DS. He has hardly put it down. Not sure how we'll top that one next year.

Hunter will be turning 5 next month. It's hard to believe. Soon he'll be starting kindergarten. It seems like just yesterday we brought him home from the hospital.
Then in April Rylie will be 3.
She acts more like 13.
I am definitely going to have my hands full with her.
She's just like me.
I wish that meant I would know how to handle it.
It doesn't.
