Ready to go to Church

Here are the little boys ALL ready for church :)

I think they dig the cowboy thing!

Trip to Lowe's

I took the boys with me on Monday to run some errands in town.  We had to go to Lowe's to buy tomato plants (yes, I know I am WAY late at getting the garden planted...don't judge). Anyway.  I found this fire pit that I really like.  I think we might have to find a place to put this in the backyard.

Anyway, while I was buying plants and tomato cages, the boys found this...and came home totally soaked :)

Summer Fun!

So yesterday the kids wanted to put the sprinkler under the trampoline.  But apparently that is more fun when you have painted yourselves with water paints first!

Apparently, water paints can stain your got way worse than this later in the day and Payt is VERY red in the back :)

Jayden is now missing a few teeth...and he had some help getting them out!  Payton and I had a dentist appointment last week 10 minutes before Jayden gets out of school.  I called around and couldn't get a hold of anyone to pick him up from school, so I just decided to check him out a few minutes early.  (It's kindergarten, what is he gonna miss in 10 minutes?) I made him come to the dentist with us and he sat and watched movies while Payt and I got out teeth clean.  As she was cleaning my teeth, the hygienist started checking my gums and cheeks for sores.  I asked her what she was doing and she explained.  I started to describe to her EXACTLY what she was looking for.  So she asked me if I had had one.  I told her that I had a son who had this random sore on his mouth that had been there for a long time.  She asked if he was there and I told her he was in the waiting room.  She said, "I think we have a few minutes, we're gonna want to see him."  About 20 minutes later, this was him:
 a little gas with a "puppy dog nose"
 two teeth less...I thought this picture was funny because his lip was all swollen and then they put cotton rolls to absorb the blood and they looked like really big buck teeth!
 recovering at home
 fat lip
 eating noodles through his new hole!
 He already had a loose tooth and it decided to come out later that night.  (With a little help)

 All three teeth, lost in ONE day!  I thought it was interesting that the teeth the dentist pulled still had the roots.
 all ready for the tooth fairy

We had a little mother/daughter shopping trip on Saturday (Kenz was wanting some long dresses, I guess I've taught her well :) And we ended up with VERY similar dresses, and of course we both wore them to church on Sunday, so we had a little twinner thing going!

I know I have lots to blog about, but I just don't have lots of time to blog Jayden's teeth story and some more pics of that will be coming soon...I PROMISE!

Growing Up...

So we have moved things around a little.  Chris' dad was getting rid of a king size bed.  We figured we have guests come regularly and so why not take a free bed?!  So we did...
 which means that Payt inherited Jaxon's old bed
 and Jaxon now sleeps in great comfort...sprawled across the bed!  
so we no longer have a crib OR a toddler bed!  Stages come and go.  My kids are growing up and getting bigger and needing more space!  Who knew!

Student of the Week!

Kenzie's teacher recommended her for student of the week last week! She got to eat lunch with the principal and received all kinds of coupons!
Here is what Mr. Baggaley, Kenzie's teacher had to say about her:
"Since the beginning of the year Mykenzie has impressed and surprised me with how great of a reader she is! She has also come along nicely in math as well. She always tries her hardest in all she does. she is creative and expresses herself like a little lady! Keep it up Mykenzie! You are a great example for the rest of the students in my class! :)"

We are so proud of her for working hard this year! So we are going to put one of those coupons to use tonight and go to a pizza buffet! (yes, you read that right and I'm not sure we will all be eating dinner tonight!)
