Great Day

Yesterday was a great day! We had soccer practice, which went well. The boys did great! Dylan was so funny. He was running around making faces and growling at people. He had a great time. Dalton did pretty good at practice. He had drills to do he had to kick the ball around cones and do baby kicks to each goal. He liked it. He did alot of running. Before practice we went to the park in town, I brought a boxed dinner for them to eat. Then we went to the playground behind the soccer practice field for a few minutes. Dalton didn't ask to play during practice though. We got home at 7:00 and Dalton wanted to play outside. I let them race dumptrucks while I ran their bath. They needed it, their feet were black from wearing their crocs all day. It was pretty nasty! The bath water was pretty dirty. They played in the bath and when I walked in to get them out, they were hugging. That's just a perfect ending to a great day. We climbed in my bed and read books then we all went to bed at 8:30. My head was hurting and sleep was all that would help! I'm looking forward to a fun filled day of nothing today. Unstructured play is AWESOME!!
Oh one kind of funny thing about Dalton that I wanted to share. He listens to a CD of Bible verses every night. There's one verse on their that is "Pray without ceasing" We have learned that verse and every time it comes on he calls me in his room to hear it. Well I got tired of being awakened in the middle of the night when he hears that song if he's awake. So I changed the CD night before last. Last night he said I don't like this CD I want the other one back. So I told him if he called me to hear "Pray without ceasing" that he wasnt' going to get to listen to it anymore. So he said "Okay I won't do that anymore I promise" (famous last words). As soon as I was dozing off I heard him say "mama come here hurry" I said "what is it" He said "I hear pray without ceasing" (I could just see him laughing) I said "that's great" he didn't say anything else. He is a mess that little stinker. Hope your day is great! Enjoy some unstructured play time (Donna)=)

Soccer Today

We have Soccer practice today. We will practice from 6-6:45. I hope to take Dalton to the playground behind the practice field before practice so he won't be so distracted during practice.
This weekend was good. We had homecoming at church yesterday. Our lesson in Sunday School was about using our talent for the Lord and using it NOW. We aren't promised tomorrow. Some of us don't even know what our talent is! We didn't have church last night. Michael went to work at 4 and me and the boys played outside. They jumped, raced dump trucks, Dalton climbed the crab apple tree and Dylan got bit by tons of ants. He kept saying "ant bit me ant bit me" then he looked down at them and tried to wipe them off his feet saying"get off me ant" However, he never budged out of the ant bed. I was running over to him telling him to move away but he thought sweeping them off and yelling at the was good enough. He was fine as soon as they were off of him. He didn't even cry. But there are lots of bites. Bless his heart. Once it got dark around 7:15 we went in, got baths, and then ate dinner. They both got to bed about 9. Late night because we took a late nap.
Saturday night after the wonderful Bama game they went out and did a few fireworks. They loved it. Michael and Dylan went to the grocery store and me and Dalton stayed home for him to practice riding his bike. When it got dark he decided he wanted to wave at all the cars that ride by our house. So we sat in the yard and waved, no one waved back. He was really bothered by that so he decided that maybe they couldn't see us since it was dark so he started jumping up and waving every time a car passed. It was so funny. People waved though!
Oh one more thing, most of the time we eat rice cakes instead of chips. Dalton says they are the "chips that make mommy skinny". They did help get rid of some weight, that's for sure!

another Post for 9/26

Here is a sample of Dalt's work! He's almost 5. Little handwriting is just precious!


I was just reading the comments that we will do a Wilkerson reunion on MLK holiday. That's when we did it last year and it's a long weekend so that will be great! I'm excited. Here are some memories for Christy, Nikki and Nick. Remember when Christy and Nick always fought. And one weekend there was a fuss and Nick shut himself in his room and wouldn't let us in. Me, Christy and Nikki made a tape:) We sang and recorded some songs and then slid it and a note under his door. How funny to remember. I loved going into Aunt Di's attic too. It was so cool especially when you're young! I also still crave Ritz crackers and sliced cheese everytime I go swimming. We made a sheet cake of muffin mix once (Nikki and Christy) and we ate it straight off of the pan!! All the crazy things we did still make me laugh! Love yall:)

OCT. 11th

Family Reunion for the Stephens' has been scheduled at Uncle Ben's on Oct. 11th. I hope everyone can be there. Remember when PawPaw was alive, we were all there. Such good memories, I want my children to have those too. We need to get together on the Wilkerson side as well. Are we going to do that at Christmas again?

Doughnuts with Dad

Today is Doughnuts with Dad at Dalt and Dyl's school. They are excited. Michael gets to enjoys doughnuts and I have rice cakes:) They are learning the letter D. Dalton has had two homework sheets this week. I'll have to upload them tomorrow. It's cute. He comes in does his work then we play. I rewarded him with water balloons. They are an inexpensive prize at WalMart. Dylan gets books. We now own every "Lightnin Keen" book they make I think. They both know the pledge and Dalt knows the books of the Bible to Proverbs and 20 Bible verses!! They are smarties! Thank you Jesus for blessing me with such sweet, smart boys.


I haven't had any time to update. Our long weekend was great! We had alot of fun time, but no marshmellow roasting or fireworks. We stayed very busy and entertained. Dyl had a temp in Sunday School Sunday morning so we spent the rest of the day at home. He got motrin and the temp was gone. We played outside the rest of the day. Racing dumptrucks and having grass fights. Monday night was SOCCER practice! Dalton was pumped. I picked him up from school early because I had to go to Opelika to take care of some school stuff and I took them with me. We were there from 2-5. I bought gas at WalMart for 3.87! It was packed, but we got the cheapest gas around! That's a shame. The boys were great in WalMart, we bought dinner from the deli there. Mandarin oranges and a sandwich, Dalton also had to have gatorade and chicken wings. Wings are his FAVORITE food ever! He ate the chicken and Dylan stole his bones, that was frightful, as I'm driving down the interstate I was trying to get bones away from Dylan!! I'm good at that though I do lots of things and drive at the same time, don't I family? Dalton came of the soccer field 2 times. Both were to ask to play on the playground right behind the field. We played for a minute or two after practice. He said "I guess I lost tonight" So funny that he doesn't know the difference in a practice and game. He practices every Monday night at 6. Mama and Daddy got to come watch him, since it's only 45 minutes it was easy. Also we had to go to the church for a visitation. One of the sweetest ladies passed away. Mrs. Voncile Harris was a greeter at our church. She was always there with a smile! She always gave Dalton hugs. He said "I miss Mrs. Harris she loved my hugs" it's sad, there will always be a missing piece now at church. We got home at 8, got baths, and then bedtime. No books. :( Tuesday Dalton played with Logan rolling up and down the hill at the ballgame he was pooped. Slept all night! Last night was church, both boys were well behaved. We had baths and dinner before church and books and bed after church. We started booktime at 8 and didn't get done til 9. We had new library books they wanted to read. It was nice and peaceful. Anyway, looking forward to a peaceful night at home tonight and FCA in the morning at 7. Pray for a large attendance!

Updates and Bragging

I wanted to let you all know that my children were somewhat better last night. Dalton's just bossy as ever:) Michael's back has improved thanks to all of you for praying! I think the medicines keep the muscle from spasming so that it can heal. Also I wanted you to know that I mentioned in my previous post that we went to the doctor at night, and if you live in our area you can do that if you are a patient of the Pediatic Clinic. They are open every day regular office hours and then every night 6-9 for walk ins. This enables us to avoid ER visits. Especially if it's something as simple as an ear infection. Our doctors are great, we have seen all of them in the practice. Our regular doctor is Dr. Smalley, he is in high demand so to get an appt. you must book early so we just settle for whoever!
We are ready to have a fire and roast marshmellows and do fireworks this weekend!! We live out of the city limits so we can do fireworks whenever:) We have some left from the 4th and Dyl has been asking to do "boom boom fireworks" so we will do our best to make him happy!! Michael has agreed to do them. The boys went to school today. Typically they stay home with Michael on Fridays since he's off, but since he missed work Tuesday and they are a little behind, he's working today. Dalton had to do homework on writing his C's last night. We didn't get done because we played outside til 7:30 then had to come in and eat, get baths, and then books. They did get in bed close to 8:30.
So now for the bragging part!!! I have 2 great sisters and am so glad that God blessed me with them and my wonderful neices and nephews. All of them are so smart!! Anna Beth is in first grade and completed 40 math problems in a minute the other night while I was on the phone with Donna. She is in the process of reading 3 chapter books, one Magic Treehouse book, Amelia Bedelia, and Junie B. Jones. She reads a chapter from each one every night because she likes to be on the same chapter in each. My neices Jill and Katie just turned 3 (not twins Jill is Lee Lees and Katie is Donna's) both can write their names and do all kinds of art projects. Katie and Anna Beth take soccer and gymnastics. Eli's teacher says that Eli (he's 9, 3rd grade) is reading on a 6th grade level and that he is above average in every subject. She also commented that he is very kind hearted and caring. (we already knew this, but validation is great!)He takes Tae Kwon Do and is competing in a tournament Saturday in South Carolina. Donna is watching Jill and Luke while Jamie and Leigh Ann take Eli! WOW, I'm a super proud aunt AND sister. Our parents didn't do too bad!! We all have so much to be thankful for. Y'all have a great weekend! I know that we will.

Ear Infections Galore!!

Wow I had no idea that my children were hurting. I got to daycare yesterday and the boys were great, so excited to see me but once in the car that all changed. Dalton has been grumpy the past 2 days, he said his left ear hurt. But he was half asleep when he first said it and I thought he might have just had a dream that it was hurting so I gave him motrin and put a warm rag on it. Then the next night he got up about 5 times just to give me a hug or tell me a dream. Dylan also got up twice that night crying. Neither was running a temp. Tuesday Dalt said his ear didn't hurt anymore. When I got to daycare yesterday he pulled (this is disgusting if your weak stomached skip this part) a clump of slimy green stuff out of his right ear. This ear has a tube so all the infection just drains out. Then I decided that I would put ciprodex in his ear but if the left one was hurting the ciprodex won't matter because it can't get to the infection with no tube. Well, Dyl cried all the way home yesterday which is not normal for him at all. He was super fussy!! We got home and I fed them dinner because Dalt was STARVING!! (he ate half a chicken tender, yogurt, olives, and cut up cucumber and tomato...that's huge for him) I watched Dyl to see how he acted then I noticed he felt a tad warm. So into the car we all went. Once we got there no more whining. They were great, holding hands running up to strangers and making funny faces. They were wild!! By the time we left at 8:30 I needed a presciption!! Both boys have ear infections and Dyl has a contact rash on his face! Anyway we got 4 presciptions filled and got home about 9:45. Then baths one Bible story and bed. We read 1 chapter of 2 Jack and Annie books at the doctors office there was no time left for anymore at home. They both slept all night after one dose of meds and some motrin and they woke up so chipper this morning at 6:45. It was great to get some sleep!! I'm looking forward to a much better day today! But I just Praise the Lord that I have been given two wonderful children to care for. I wouldn't trade my hectic days at the doctor for anything, well maybe a crazy day at the house but you know what I mean:)

Lots of Stuff

I have a few quick minutes so I'll update fast. This weekend was GREAT just too short so we're living for Friday. My honey's back is hurt. He went to the doctor and they say it's just a pulled muscle. "JUST A PULLED MUSCLE" you never know how important your back muscles are until one is pulled. He is a muscle man at work and pretty much does lots of heavy lifting and bending in maintenance so this has really been hard to deal with. Anyway yesterday he finally went to the doctor and got some meds. Maybe he's on the road to recovery. I just wish I could help him, but there's nothing I can do. The boys are both doing great. They got all of the Magic Treehouse Series of books. I was going to save them for Christmas, but we're checking one out a week at the library and at that rate we would have read almost all of them by Christmas. Dylan loves Jack and Annie he has just looked through all of the books. Last night we read one chapter out of 3 of them. Lots of reading and cuddle time. Dyl fell and hit his head at daycare yesterday he has a big scrape on his forehead. I sand Red River Valley for Dalton the other night and he just sobbed "I don't want to ever leave you mama, I don't want anyone to ever take me away from you" Big huge tears streaming down his sweet face. He is a tenderheart!! We had a ballgame Friday, one of Dalt's daycare friends was there and he played the whole time. Saturday we went to Colin's party at Pump it Up. Too fun!! We all have slide burns on our legs but it was a blast. After that we got Dalton's stuff for Soccer he is Umbroed out. New ball, shin guards and cleats make him look so grown up. He is changing so much facially it's amazing. Dylan loves to help him play soccer. Still their favorite thing to do is race dumptrucks, one day one of them is going to go flying over the front. But until then we'll just have fun running out some energy. Church was great on Sunday!! Both boys were great. Our lesson was about an invitation to Heaven letting everyone know about it!! Disciples died spreading the word and I'm embarrased to be rejected!! That's another item of prayer.
Anyway in a nutshell that's been our week! I hope yall's is going great!!

Ever felt like that!

It's Finally Friday!!

This week has gone by really fast. I had morning duty at school so I had to be there every day at 7am. It's not bad at all. I just don't get into my room until right at time to start so I feel rushed. I like to see the kids first thing in the morning. Yesterday was a good day. I had to grocery shop for FCA. Then I went to pick up the boys. They were covered in dirt. I love it when I can tell they have been busy playing. Dalton had lots of papers on the letter B. They had to wear Blue for B week. We learned "Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the sons of God" for our B verse. I don't know what we'll learn for C, any suggestions? Dylan busted his lip on a tricycle at school. I was loading up Dalton's bike and Dyl was playing with the other bikes there. One tricycle was on the edge and he pulled on it, it flipped up and busted his lip. He bled and bled and still tried to get on that tricycle. He's a stubborn little booger:) We ate pizza for dinner last night at the picnic table. They love eating outside, but when we had to go in it was bad. We got baths, read books, and went to bed. Then Michael came home early (8:00 instead of 10) so the boys got up and played with Daddy then back to bed they went at 9. Michael showed them a snake that a guy caught at work. They loved it, but it was still alive!! They really loved that.
We have a birthday party tomorrow and a ballgame tonight! Not much else going on. Hope your weekend's great!

September 11th

If you haven't said a prayer for the families of those lost on 9/11 please do so now. This poem is called "Meet me in the Stairwell". It gave me chills. He is always there, have you talked to Him today?
"Meet Me In The Stairwell"
I was on the 110th floor in a smoke filled room with a man who called his wife to say "Good-bye." I held his fingers steady as he dialed. I gave him the peace to say, "Honey, I am not going to make it, but it is OK...I am ready to go." I was with his wife when he called as she fed breakfast to their children. I held her up as she tried to understand his words and as she realized he wasn't coming home that night.I was in the stairwell of the 23rd floor when a woman cried out to me for help. "I have been knocking on the door of your heart for 50 years!" I said. "Of course I will show you the way home -- only believe on Me now."I was at the base of the building with the Priest ministering to the injured and devastated souls. I took him home to tend to his Flock in Heaven. He heard my voice and answered.I was on all four of those planes, in every seat, with every prayer. I was with the crew as they were overtaken. I was in the very hearts of the believers there. Comforting and assuring them that their Faith has saved them.I was in Texas, Kansas, London. I was standing next to you when you heard the terrible news. Did you sense Me? I want you to know that I saw every face. I knew every name-though they did NOT all know Me. Some met me for the first time on the 100th floor. Some sought me out in their last breath. Some couldn't hear me calling to them throughout the smoke and flames, "Come to Me...this way...take my hand." Some chose, for the final time, to ignore Me. But, I was there.I did not place you in the Tower that day--you may not know why, But I DO. However, if you were there in that explosive moment in time, would you have reached for Me? September 11, 2001, was not the end of the journey for you. But someday your journey will end. And I will be there for you as well. Seek Me now while I may be found. Then, at any moment, you know you are "ready to go." I will be in the stairwell of your final moments.
We will not ever forget!
Last night was church it went great. We got home late and went straight to read books and go to bed. The boys were good this morning, not much else to report:)

A Must See

My brother in law sent me this and you have to see it. It really puts things into perspective. If you think you are having a rough day or time, remember this little boy! Oh how much we have to be thankful for!http://www.heraldleaderphoto.com/2008/05/31/Adam-bender/

I did a lesson in my Health class last Friday about rumors. We are learning about adolescence and what a strange difficult time in life that is. I added that rumors and gossip about people is very hurtful and oftentimes unfounded. I told them to spread a rumor that I was pregnant. I only have 11 people in that class and our school is very small. Sunday at church my parents and my in laws were asking if I had something to tell them. Then my husband called and asked why people were asking him at work if I was pregnant. WOW when you tell kids to spead a rumor they really spread it. Turns out that one student who heard it went home and told their mom who told my sis in law.....Anyway I had to announce yesterday that I am not pregnant and that it was a class assignment that they all PASSED! It's a great lesson for us as adults to learn too. Always check with the source before you spread what you hear, find out if what you hear is really true. Alot of times a reputation can not be repaired:) The Bible has this to say about gossip "A gossip betrays a confidence; so avoid a man [or woman] who talks too much" (Proverbs 20:19). Pretty good stuff!
I am attaching a photo of the kids. This pic was at Lukes first birthday party in Chelsea. Leigh Ann had it at her house. They had a pool and huge slide. The kids had a blast. We did too. It's neat to see how the kids have grown even since then, Luke was inside eating. It was too hot for him to be out there. There are a couple of Dalt and Dyl too. They are too sweet!
Yall have a great day!

Marvelous Monday

This weekend was great, just too short as usual. I cherish the time that I get to spend at home with my family. It just goes too quickly. Every day I see how much they are growing and it just makes me smile. Friday afternoon the boys wanted to paint, we started out on paper and ended up paining their bodies. We had to rinse off with the water hose then moved onto the slip and slide. It was a fun afternoon.

Friday night was the ball game, we won and watched a very vulgar guest band at halftime. I felt as if I needed to cover my eyes let alone my children. Anyway the boys loved the music I don't think the dancing scarred them too much. Dalton likes to see "the girls with the shiney bootys". Our majorettes wear sequined uniforms and he loves them. At least we know he likes girls! I just hoped they wouldn't spark an interest so early! They both enjoyed the game but we left at halftime. It was already 9:00 and that's a half hour past bedtime. We got up early Saturday and went to Santuck. A big yard sale basically about 45 minutes from home. Dalton said "is this a guard sale?". Michael said "yep, if you have a guard you have to sell it." We missed a turn and went about 10 miles out of the way and then had to back track, but it was funny. At least it was time together. Dalton is a yard sale junky. He wanted to stay all day. He kept fishing through all the stuff and telling us to wait he was looking. Dylan almost fell asleep, but we managed to keep him entertained with food. Roasted corn and snow cones were our lunch! Then we listened to Bama win! Roll Tide, Auburn won as well (that was just for Michael and Christy as you know I don't even like the word) Sunday was church we learned two more Bible verses and one more book of the Bible. When we got home we watched Peter Pan. Dalton has never watched it all the way through but he and Dyl were just captivated by it. At bedtime (my favorite time) we read!! We read a chapter of a dino. book, a chapter of a Magic Treehouse Series book, and the Bible. Me, Dalt, and Dyl climb up in my bed and read then they go to bed. We love cuddling up to read. They love to read, it's fun. Dalton always says he has his imagination. Dylan just yells "tegasaurus" in a gruffy voice. He calls every dinosuar a stegasaourus or tyranasaurus. They were really sweet last night. They took a long bath because they were playing so nicely. They were driving cars on the edge of the tub. They sat in the floor by each other watching Peter Pan. I hope that they are always close, best friends. That's why we had two, we want them to always have at least one TRUE friend. That's what you have in a sibling. Someone to share the craziness and the memories of childhood.
Our FCA got a one hundred dollar donation! God is good. He will continue to bless, yall continue to pray!!

So glad it's Friday! Today should be uneventful. Yesterday was busy but good. Michael surprised us by getting home at 8 pm instead of 10 pm. He usually works 2-10 but yesterday he work 12-8. We were so happy to see him. I let the boys stay up 'til 9 to play. We were all in bed at 10:30. I got up at 5:30 to prepare breakfast for FCA. The meeting was great with about 50 or more in attendance. Steve Gandy was our speaker and he did an awesome job! Tonight we will go to the ballgame, the boys will love it. Last night Dylan was running around with his tongue out saying he was Lightnin' Keen. If you haven't seen Cars, there is a part where Lightning has to cross the finish line with his tongue out so he can win. It's too funny. When I picked the boys up Dylan was doing that at daycare too. Dalton had his first official homework. We're writing the letter Aa. He had so much fun. I'll have to post his handiwork on here later. It's just too fun watching them learn and grow. My cousin Christy mentioned that Aubrey has been working on math!! That is awesome they are too smart. Were we that smart?? If so what happened to me? I hope yall have a great Friday and awesome weekend, we will!

Had to stay late for a meeting yesterday and had church last night. I picked the boys up at 4:50 and then we ran to WalMart for Dalton's prize. Dalton got a 6 dollar motorcycle (boom boom bibible as Dylan calls it) and Dylan got a 13 dollar bed time story book. These prizes are killing the bank account! At church Dalton said the 15 books of the Bible he knows. He can say them all the way to Nehemiah. He has learned 12 bible verses and the fruits of the spirit. It's amazing all the things their little brains can hold. Dylan can say the fruits of the spirit, Genesis and Exodus and he can complete some of Dalton's Bible verses if you get him started. I figure if he can quote scenes from Barnyard, then he can learn Bible verses too. I'm so proud of our boys! We didn't get home til 7:45 and they had to have baths. Late night but they were both in bed by 8:45. They both woke up once last night but that's it. We all got up at 6:45. I had to shower and be at work by 7:15, I didn't get there till 7:17, but that's pretty good considering. Good thing we live close to work! Today I have to stay late for another meeting then go shopping for breakfast for FCA tomorrow. But then it's FRIDAY!! Can I get a Hooray?? I love Fridays.
My mom asked for prayer for a friend of hers son. His name is Michael Blake. He's in his 30's and has a wife and young children. He was diagnosed with cancer, went into remission and now it's back. His doctors have told him to quit work and cherish this little bit of time with his family. How sad, but we know that our God is a God of miracles. He can be cured, "For nothing is impossible with God." Luke 1:37. I claim that verse for Michael and his family, I pray that you will do the same.
Pray about FCA tomorrow. It's a fabulous outreach ministry! I Hope the rest of your day is great! Remember God is good ALL the time:)

I am in charge of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at Reeltown High School. We need money for breakfast each Friday. Any ideas?? Also your donations are welcome just send them to Reeltown High School FCA, 4085 AL HWY 120, Notasulga, AL 36866. Contact your rich Christian friends too:)

Confession is good for the soul:)

I have a confession that I must make. Our oldest son Dalton is four. He is ALL boy, however, up until this past week he has been getting into our bed to sleep. He slept by himself when he was a baby until he was about 16 months old. At 16 months he began getting ear infections and in order for us to get some sleep we placed him in our bed. He's been falling asleep in his bed, but getting into ours around 2 or 3 in the morning. None of us get good rest because he is a wiggler. Now that you know that we have been terrible parents, know that we are getting better!! He has slept in his bed every night this week. Last night he slept without getting up even once. I have been getting up when he gets up and putting him back in his bed about two times each night, but not one time last night did he get up. Hooray, Dalton!! We're are so proud of him, he can do it. I knew that he could, I was just unsure about me. But I did it too! Yeah me!! Last night Dylan, the nearly two year old, who never wakes up in the middle of the night, woke up. I went in patted him and we all went back to sleep. It was a good night and now I look forward to many many more! Dalton is getting a reward of some kind today. I plan on getting him signed up for soccer as well. I'm sure there will be many stories to tell about that!
Yesterday was another great day. We played outside all afternoon. Michael found a turtle and left it in a box on the table for them to admire. We had to set it free when we got home. Racing dump trucks, riding bikes, sliding, blowing bubbles and of course jumping on the trampoline make up our typical evenings. After we got in the boys took a bath, I cooked, we read, and they went to bed. Peaceful cleaning and then I went to bed.
I've been reading the Power of a Positive Mom (thanks Lee Lee) and boy do we have huge responsiblities ladies. I love knowing that I have that much influence most of the time, but sometimes it's scary. Last night I read about the temptation of the pity party. No matter how hard our lives seem I know that my Saviour suffered more! How can we have pity parties when we think about that. Thank you Jesus for saving me and for allowing me to have good and bad days with my loved ones!! Yall have a good day!

Great Weekend

It was a nice long weekend!! However, it was still too short. We went to Eli's 9th birthday party. I can't believe he's nine. He's such a kind and loving 9 year old. Children just grow up too fast. I have always had trouble taking Dalton places by myself, but this time was great. He was great at the party and on the ride to and from. I am so proud!
Dylan is growing too fast. He is trying to say everything! He is really hung up on Lightning McQueen. He takes the cars to bed with him at night and loves to run them through the toy car wash. Last night he was feeding Dalton's new T-Rex popcorn. He also pretended to change his diaper! Dalton didn't like that too much. He told Dylan to stop doing girly things with his dinosaur. So then we had to take the dinosaur out to the trampoline so Dalton and Dylan could both jump on it. They are too funny. All boy!
Content that's how I feel this morning! Way too blessed to be stressed!! Hope you have a great day too.
