Here Come the Terrible Twos!!!

Well, we got to go home for spring break to see the fam!! This is Russell at Grandma Moulton's house. He got spoiled for his birthday by Grandparents and Aunt Hayley!!!

Russell loves his choo choo train from Aunt Hayley!!

Russ with Grandpa Bob.

We went to Grandpa Ward's house and got to play with the baby cows.

He is a newborn. Isn't he cute?

Russell loved his snake cake that mother slaved over. Forked tongue and all! It was like two feet long!!

Russell and his friend, Riker. They had a conjoined birthday party.

Russell was unable to blow out his single candle.

I love it when he makes this mischievious face.

Russell enjoying his bus. Look at their faces. They look like twins!
Anyway. Things are good here. I held my first book club meeting at my house. We had a very lively discussion about the book, The Five Love Languages. Travis is of course studying a lot still and being his cute self.
We just put Russell in a "big boy" bed. Wish us luck with that!! We are going to need all the luck we can get now that he is two!!!

A Super-Sewing Scheme, a Mighty Moulton Miracle, an Enormously Necessary Nerd-Alert, and a Perilous Potty Plot

A Super Sewing Scheme

So, my super sewing scheme was sewing my sweet son a super-hero cape!! I'm not done yet. I still have to design and sew on his one-of-a-kind super-hero logo. My very first project with my spectacular new sewing machine that I got for Christmas. Thanks to all of you who donated to the sewing machine cause!! I'm so excited because I bought a new pair of pants, and I can actually hem them myself now!!!

A Mighty Moulton Miracle

No, no. Your eyes do not deceive you. My husband truly is the mighty 2nd ward pinewood derby champion. Travis and his shark car, Sherman, went undefeated. The miracle part is that Travis and I both had our doubts that Sherman was up to the competition, but he proved us wrong!


It was a blood bath people!!

An Enormously Necessary Nerd-Alert

Help!! My house has been invaded by knicker-wearing nerds!!! Look how high they wear their pants!! This is an emergency!!!

This was their horrific Nerd boogie!
A Perilous Potty Plot

I'm not sure what it is yet, but I can tell by that evil gleam in his eye that he is Perilous Potty Plotting!!

Russell's New Sentence

So...Russell is talking more and more and more and more. He speaks in quite complicated sentences. The other day he said, "Let's read the book about choo-choo trains." Today he listened very carefully to me as I commented about his dirty diaper. His new sentence for the day is, "I have diarrhea!" He walked around saying that for quite some time. Silly guy.

Russell and Daddy built a big road!! Russell said, "I did it!!"

Grandma and Grandpa Ward came to visit. Can you tell that Russell is sad to see them go? Oh, and Dad tried to get Russell to become a Bronco fan instead of a Cougar fan. Although we do like the's not going to happen, Dad!! Go Cougs!!

Just swinging at the park on one of our nicer days!!

Love ya'll!!
