Kids say the darndest things

Last week for Mother's Day the kids filled out a survey about their moms in primary. I just found Cooper's and learned some interesting things about myself. Apparently, my eyes are brown - not blue. My birthday is June 30th - not October 5th. I weigh '20 weights' (thank you, Cooper). And last but not least, I was born in Jerusalem. I read it to Randy and we both got a good laugh out of it.

And my other son . . . we went for a walk the other day and passed by this man who didn't have a shirt on. Hudson pointed at the man and yelled, "Mom! Naked!" The man didn't hear him, but I got a good laugh.

Old News

I've been pretty bad about updating my blog (sorry, Bre & Chris), so I'm doing it now even though most of this stuff is old news. Still . . .

Hudson turned 2 on the 25th of March. A ball is his favorite thing to play with - any kind, he's not picky - so a lot of his gifts involved some kind of ball. He's really into airplanes, too. Everytime he sees one he yells 'bear-plane, bear-plane!', so Randy and I got him a little people airplane which he flies all over the house. He's getting so big and he has such personality. Everyday he makes me laugh, he's such a character. In fact, as I'm typing this he's walking around in my church heels.

Cooper is playing Tball. Practices are over and they are playing 'games' now. I write 'games' because they don't keep score and there really is no fielding whatsoever, but everyone gets to run the bases and bat twice. It's pretty fun to watch these little kids run while holding onto their batting helmets for dear life. Cooper seems to really enjoy it.

Anyway, that's my update. Enjoy the pics!

These pics are from the Zoo a couple weeks ago and bubble beards in the bathtub.

Fun with legos (and the treadmill)

This is what the boys did this morning after I finished my run. They love to play with the treadmill. Cooper loves to run on it; Hudson likes to put toys in it. You wouldn't believe the things I find in there.

I think I wanna marry you

Brooke and Keith are officially married as of February 12th. Yea! It was so much fun to have the whole family together. I wish everyone could have stayed longer, but that's life. Welcome to the McDowell Family, Keith. :)

So this is how I spent last Saturday morning - building a bulldozer and jackhammer out of kinex/legos. My boys begged and begged for me to build it until I finally gave in. I think it lasted all of 12 minutes before the boys started taking it apart, but I learned that I have a talent for building toys out of legos. I think I missed my calling in life - I should've been a professional lego builder. :)
