Yeah but it's worse when

We have all been there. You finish your business in the bathroom. THEN you find you are out of toilet paper. That's a bad situation.

But it's worse when you have the baby open on the changing table, big mess everywhere, then he does MORE while he's open, and you reach for the wipie dispenser -- empty! NO!!

No matter how many times you do some jobs, Dads just aren't good at them. We really do try, but some jobs are better for Mom. Would a baby bidet be better?

Oh what do you do in the Winter time?

This is a question I've been asking for the last 2 months! We've been stuck in the house WAY more than ever before. We've had snow almost non-stop since we got back from Christmas vacation. Any snow here means that schools are closed, so I think the kids have only been to preschool about 4 times in 2 months.

So, what do we do in the winter time?

We rent lots of dollar movies and make pillow beds in the front room.

Sometimes Sydney has "friends" over to watch movies with her.
We also make pillow beds in large boxes that I should be packing with...
We make and decorate sugar cookies. This is on one of the Sundays that church was cancelled due to snow...Jackson insisted on keeping his Sunday sweater on.
We play dress-ups and dance to music
*note-that is a doll diaper laying on the floor...not a Carter one.*
And yes, every once in a while we even play in that fluffy white stuff. ;-)

Look how deep the snow is!

So, what do you do in the winter time when there's no where to go? I could use more ideas!

Carter is officially 3 months old!

Here he is at about 3 weeks.

Now at 3 months! He's filling up that bouncer now!

What a cutie!

A few years ago for Valentines I sang the song that Kip sings to LaFawnda to Keresa. She felt kind of ripped off because -- was I saying I love her, or I love technology?

This valentines, I love my wife, my kids, and still I love technology. :) Just watch the Google ad. You'll cry at the culmination of the three.

A bunch of weeks in review :)

I have still been keeping my "weird things the kids say" journal, but have been busy. Everyone tells us the third child is the hardest. I'm not sure its that Carter is number three, its just that Sydney and Jackson have become so independent, Keresa and I have been able to take a lot more time for ourselves. Now with Carter, we have a baby who needs 24/7 help. It takes a lot of time away from the stuff we have added in since Sydney and Jackson have needed less help. We love him anyway. :)

Jackson came in frantically rubbing his eyes and said, "Mommy there's eyebrows in my eyes!"

We stopped during our road trip to get gas and Keresa asked the kids to be quiet and calm so Carter would stay asleep. Sydney said, "but I thought Heavenly Father made it so when we are asleep we can't hear anyhthing?"

Jackson has a friend named Josh. But he messes up his name and says, "my friend Gosh..."

Grandma Whitney was helping Jackson put on his shoes. They smelled kind of stinky and he had just gotten in trouble for saying some "bathroom words." So instead of risking it and getting in trouble again, he said, "My shoes smell like a bathroom word."

Jackson saw a spider crawling on the ground. He told us, "That spider probably crawled out of my mouth because my teeth are dirty because I haven't brushed my teeth in a long time."

To avoid always naming human waste, we call it bathroom. We say things to the kids like "Do you need to do some bathroom?" or "Get all your bathroom into the toilet and none in your undies." Jackson figured it out and said," Hey guys," (because he calls his parents 'guys') "we do bathroom IN the bathroom! " then he laughed and lauhed.

Jackson got busted for talking about pee. In his defense he said, "But I was talking about the number P, not the bathroom p."

Jackson said, "I really wanna suck!" He meant that he wanted a sucker.

I was helping Jackson get ready for bed. While he still had his shirt off he was hugging my leg. He said, "Dad you need to shave your legs. I can feel your pokey hairs poking my belly." Then when he was ready for bed his eyes were all red and bloodshot. I told him. He asked why. I said probably because he was so tired. He said, "probably because I am half boy and half monster!" then he growled at me.

Sydney said, "I can't wait to go to a zoo someday so I can see some cows!" Won't she be delighted to visit Logandale someday.

Jackson was holding a car hanging by one of sydneys rubber bands. He asked if I wanted to play his piñata. I asked him to explain. He said,"You have to kick the piñata with a baseball bat until the candy falls out."

Sydney said it would take too long to drive "the final time" to Las Vegas. Mom said what do you mean final. Syd said, "Well, final means the last time. Instead, we should sell our car and truck, drive to Las Vegas in an airplane, and when we get to Las Vegas buy a minivan."
