Some Labor Day pictures






Posted by Picasa

Thank you God for the rain! We went to the ranch this weekend and had a great time in the rain. We might would have rather been outside than cleaning out the barn, but we still had a great time. Buddy and boys had a great time. Emaline and I were the only girls this time, and had some bonding time. There is a reason there is only one picture of her...see the stripe on her forehead? She did it to herself with the diaper bag wipe box! The bruise has gone from bad to worse over the past few days. I made it black and white so that CPS wouldn't be called. I won't name any names who she was with when it happened, but if I get investigated, your name is coming out!!!

Parker rode Junie, the horse, all by himself. He looks so big. I love the blk and white pictures of Parker, it shows a side of his personality... one that reminds me too much of myself.

At the ranch, Parker and Cole slept side by side on cots. Parker's first time on a cot. At 4:00am I heard Parker say, Cole Cole Wakeup! It was clear as day, not mumbling. It stopped, so I went back to sleep. During breakfast Cole broke it to us that Parker did it 4 or 5 times during the night. Poor Cole! No wonder Parker took his nap from 11:00-2! One milestone we met this holiday was Parker now likes to go PEE in the grass. Maybe this will help encourage him to NOT go in the diaper. Please, no WT comments on this one.

HA! I remember it being such a "manly" thing for my brothers to go pee in nature!! :)What a fun time for the cousins! We used to all sleep on cots at g-parents too! Such great memories!

That's funny! It took us forever to reach that milestone. Bryce would always try to pee in the grass and then chicken out. But, this summer he peed on our house like a champ (b/c he didn't want to go inside from swimming!).

Charlie also taught Zane how to pee outside, and he actually asked to go outside one day and started going on the patio (not even the grass!) instead of going to the bathroom...

That is how we trained Patrick. It is more fun for them that way except when they start doing it at the park or in someone's front yard it is kind of embarrassing.

That is another reason why I was a boy rather than girl...peeing on the grass

Braxton loves to go Pee outside. He is such the boy. Potty training has begun again on our end. He is doing well. I would take some pointers if you have them!
