If I Had My Camera Tonight...

If I had my camera tonight you would have seen...
  • Hudson throw a full out temper tantrum while waiting in line at Spring Creek. (Mommy and Noni turning bright red trying to "handle" it.)
  • Hudson gobble down an entire pickle spear in line after he calmed down. (Pickle juice dripping down Mommy's shirt, but Mommy not caring because he was a happy boy again.)
  • Hudson dancing in his high chair to the country music while happily eating. (Mommy and Noni smiling and eating too.)
  • Hudson dipping his THIRD pickle in his ice cream for dessert. Yes, my friends, DIPPING HIS PICKLE IN ICE CREAM and eating away. (Noni asking Hudson if he was pregnant...HA HA!)

Don't you wish you were with us for dinner tonight?? :)

Splish Splash and a BIG boo boo!

Let me start by saying it has been raining for a week now. It has been miserable outside and we have been really cooped up. So, when it was time to head to the Little Houses for playgroup yesterday we didn't hesitate, even though it was sprinkling at the time. Only four of us were able to go, and we figured we could just let the boys play in the red caboose. Well, by the time we got there it wasn't raining anymore and the boys wanted nothing to do with the caboose. I mean, they have been cooped up for a WEEK STRAIGHT...they wanted OUT. So, we happily obliged and let them go to town running in and out of the houses and throwing rocks in rain puddles. When another family arrived to play I decided to run back in the caboose to gather up our stuff. Little did I know that my little shadow was on my heals. He apparently was racing to catch me and while trying to get around the family that arrived took a nasty spill down the stairs of the caboose. (Insert tears here.) Annie saved the day with her First Aid kit (which I promptly need to get and put in the car!!!). Hudson didn't want the medicine, but I finally conviced him that he could splash in the puddles if he let me put it on. So, what started out as throwing rocks in the puddles turned in to this: Banged up boy standing in the water.
Sutton and Landon decided to pop a squat in the water!
Porter still playing with the rocks!
What does every injured boy need to eat for dinner? Frozen yogurt with M & M's and marshmallows of course! (Hudson picked the toppings, can you tell?) Yes, if you are wondering, we all took our SOAKING WET boys inside to have a treat. We were "those" moms and loving every minute!

Thanks Cara for these great pictures!!!

Giddy Up Swiffer!

Lately, Hudson has been asking for the Swiffer, and once he gets it, he begins to "ride" it around the kitchen complete with "da da da da" sounds. It is HILARIOUS! I have tried and tried to get a picture of it, and I finally got the camera out in time today. LOVE IT!

Sitting at the Table

A few weeks ago, Hudson started showing interest in sitting at the table to eat with us instead of sitting in his high chair. Since he isn't quite tall enough to just sit in the chair, we attached his booster seat and haven't looked back. He LOVES sitting with us. The only thing Mommy doesn't love is the fact that we have a glass table and it is G.R.O.S.S. after every meal! YUCK!! If you know of some cute, plastic placemats, please share!!! :)
What a big boy!! (I know the high chair is in the background...haven't gotten around to putting that up yet!)
Just a little glimpse of what Hudson does while I am cooking dinner...
...he is cooking of course!
