The Bathtub

This is how our day started today. The kids took a bath and after Brady was all clean I took him out and got him dressed for the day. Rayna was finishing up her bath so I went to get her clothes out of her room. The next thing I hear is, "Mom, Brady's in the bathtub!" I go in the bathroom and yep, he's in the bathtub, fully clothed. He thought it was hilarious! I'm telling you, this boy loves the water!

Dance Class

Rayna had her first ballet/tap class today. She was so excited to go and couldn't wait to get all dressed up. She did so great! There were four little girls in her class and they all did a really good job today. We were surprised at how well they all listened and did what Miss Penny told them to do. The pictures of the class aren't that great since I had to take them through the window. Rayna can't wait until next week when she gets to go do ballet again!

Rayna's Name

Rayna has been working on writing her letters lately and yesterday decided to write her name. She did a really good job! She was very proud of herself and so were we! It was funny though, for some reason she decided that she'd rather do a lower case r than an upper case R and told me that as she was writing it.

Brady's Blankies

Brady is so cute when he lays down to go to sleep. He grabs all of his blankets and cuddles up with them underneath him. Even if he is half asleep and you lay him down in his crib, he rolls over and cuddles up like that. He loves his blankie!

A Special Visit

We got a special visit over the weekend from cousin Corey and Kathy. We were so excited that they came over to Medford so we could all get together. We met them, along with Jeff, Mandee and the kids, at the park and had a picnic and let the kids play for the afternoon. It was wonderful, despite the chilly weather. We had a great time visiting with everyone and the kids loved all the attention they got from cousin Corey! Thanks so much for coming to see us!

Rayna and Rayden

As usual, the girls had so much fun playing together. They were so goofy and silly. It was very difficult to get a picture of the two of them because they wouldn't sit still or look at you at the same time. They played and played and when we left, Rayna kept crying "I miss my cousin Rayden" all the way home.

Brady at the Park

Brady had so much fun playing at the park. He followed the girls everywhere and wanted to do everything like the big kids. His favorite thing to do right now is hang on things, which is what he's doing on the little bridge. He was so dirty by the time we left, but he had a great time!

Rolling Down the Hill

Corey tried teaching the girls how to roll down the hill. It was a pretty funny sight. They kept going in opposite directions, especially Rayna. She'd get started and then end up rolling across the hill instead of down it. They had so much fun though!
