Camera Dump!

Sorry for the lack of blogging. We're all so busy that blogging just doesn't get done sometimes. We are taking pictures though so eventually, everything will get blogged. Here are many pictures that don't need their own post or that just never got blogged from the last few weeks. Enjoy!

Penny fell asleep listening (and watching the bouncing ball over the words) to primary music on the ipad. So sweet.

We made Garden cupcakes. The frosting was a disaster because I was in a hurry and just didn't do it right....but it was fun nonetheless. Garden cupcakes have frosting that is flavored and matches the color. Like pink was strawberry flavored, green was mint flavored, yellow was lemon flavored etc. With tons of sprinkles. Penny learned how to make them by watching a video on ABC foods (ipad game). 

Sometimes Michael just takes matters into his own hands and tries to get out all by  himself!

I haven't been filling out my menu chart because food just tastes funny to me this pregnancy and well, if I stare at what I'm going to be making for too long on the menu chart it doesn't sound good. So every meal has been spontaneous around here.

Dominic has been one happy child as of late. He hasn't had any bouts of uber frustration that I can think of in over a month (where he stomps up the stairs, slams his door and throws himself on his bed because he's angry). He used to have one every other week or so. Anyways, he really is much happier this year....and he wasn't unhappy last year, just I've noticed a significant difference.

We've had a few really silly laughing fits in the last week and I caught one on camera. I love his genuine, "that is the funniest thing I've ever heard," laugh. Its contagious. Sean and I usually end up in tears right along with him whenever he finds something this funny.

I love it when they do work together. Sometimes its even on the same chair.

We had a FHE at the temple the other week. It was drizzling rain, but we decided to go anyways. It was perfect and we were the only ones there.

Penny was the only one who wanted an umbrella.....she was also the only one who probably didn't need one. She insisted that two hats are better than one when its raining. =)

I love this shot of everyone.

She was being a goof with that umbrella.

He has to stop and smell all the flowers. While leaning over the ledge he noticed that it was wet and cold.

There were lots of slugs out. We had to be careful not to step on them. Dominic tried to get this one to walk onto his finger but quickly figured out how slow slugs are.

All my canned peaches are in the pantry and such a treat. We have eaten one can of pears and one can of peaches a week. So yummy. Michael doesn't even use his hands.

Saying the word Peaches no doubt. I love his taco tongue.

This has been such a fun game for Michael. I made this for Penny when she was a toddler and we've had it around and I found it the other week and Michael has been addicted. I drilled holes in the top of a #10 lid and put it back on the #10 can. Then gave him some pipe cleaners. Its pretty therapeutic and great for fine motor skills.

Lego building!

I love finding this at night.
Sometimes she won't be quiet and so Dominic will give up on his reading and read a book or two to Penny till she's tired. Then he can get back up in his bed and read to his liking. I love  hearing him read to her (she loves it too).

Fort building 101:

My little homeless baby.

He loves hats. When Sean saw this picture he totally was shocked at how much it looked like Penny to him. 

He was loving sliding off the couch (shhhh, don't tell him he's sliding. He thinks he's jumping!)

Yay! He celebrates each "jump"

This was before her haircut. I love this face.

And thats it, I'm pretty much caught up on blogging. Till next time...
