Sydney's getting old

Sydney is getting so useful. Yesterday when I was bathing Savannah I could hear my phone ringing but wasn't about to leave Savannah and get it. Next thing I know is Sydney's bringing me the phone and says "here's dada". She had actually answered the phone, not just brought it to me. Bob told me later that she answered by saying hello, and he was confused when it wasn't my voice. He said, "Sydney?" and she said,"oh, hi dada". Then he asked if he could talk to me and she brought me the phone. Crazy!


The girls were hungry for pudding today, just thought I'd share the photo's that my wife emailed me.

Oh, how quickly summer goes by

Especially if you work at a year-round school. Yes, we have already started again. :( /cry. But what do you do. Technically I have been working 1-2 days a week for the last 5 weeks (extended year services at Viewmont high school).

I got moved to another elementary school closer to my home, nice... And I'll be sharing a high school with my friend Andrew. We don't usually have as much to do at the high schools as speech therapist, but we still have some students that we work with. I ran into one of my students from last year at Cafe Rio. He told his mom that I was "cool", can you believe it. I mean, those of you who really know me... can you believe? Me neither.

Anyway, now I have to get back to work and pray that Lindy doesn't divorce me for leaving her home with the three kids.

All the kids

We were pretty proud of ourselves for getting some pictures with all 3 kids together, and none of them were crying. You that have 3 kids in 3 years, or multiple children can understand this. These are the outfits Lindy's aunt Jodi gave them. Cute!!!


My mom & sister helped us take the kids to Lagoon on their stake Lagoon day, since we would never do this by ourselves with a 3 year old, an 18 month old, & a 2 month old. The girls weren't so sure about the rides at first, but ended up having a great time. We even went back for bounce back on Monday.

Sydney asked to get wet in the water fountain thinger, so Aunt Elyse took her. Then Sydney freaked out, she didn't know what she was getting her self into.

Bama and Sydney. Bama is Sydney's absolute favorite, when she's around, Mom and Dad go to the way side.

Matching Ariel swimsuits. Too bad we couldn't talk Bob into getting in Ariel swimsuit.

The little girls loved the lazy river, when we left they were both very upset.

Kelsey and Elyse, my sisters.

Savannah was scared on the ferris wheel, so scared, she fell asleep.

Savannah was so tired (missing all of her naps) that she conked out on Bob's lap.

Of course Logan boy came with us too. He slept most the time. Eat sleep, eat sleep. Bob doesn't think he has such a bad life.

a bunch of stuff

Okay, so there was a ton of stuff posted today. We had too much fun with this website (as you'll be able to see), but after that we have pictures of Sydney's princess party. So, scroll down if you want to see that.

Princess Party

Since Sydney is so obsessed with Disney princesses, we invited some of her friends & cousins to a princess party.

We had the kids make fruit loop necklaces. Apparently we don't do enough crafts with our children. Sydney didn't understand what we were doing here.

Savannah was very proud of her necklace. She had a good old time at the party (more than Sydney did).

Logan came to, but he didn't participate much in the games.

Instead of pin the tail on the donkey, we had them put stickers on the castle. I had Bob draw a castle for the girls to put them on, Sydney was very impressed.

We had a princess cake walk where we had different princesses that they could walk on while listening to Disney princess music. When the music stopped we asked who was standing on a certain princess, then they got to wear or hold something related to that princess.

Sydney's boy cousins felt bad that they weren't included (only girls were invited at first), so we told them that they could come, but they would have to put up with princess stuff. They were mostly good sports about it; however, Matthew treaded lightly because he didn't want to wear any princess apparel (silly boy, we had a sword waiting for him).

Oaklie dressed up like Jasmin.

Little mermaid for Kelsey (even though she was too tall for the picture).

Savannah is enjoying her poison apple after landing on Snow White. (We didn't actually poison that apple).

Sydney got to wear the Cinderella Slippers (we made sure that this happened because she would have thrown a fit if anyone else put on her slippers).

Here the girls got to hear clues to guess the different princess dolls hiding in bags. Here are the girls guessing (which they were pretty good at), they all got a prize for each princess.

Here is the princess lineup with the prizes they got below.

It took awhile for Sydney to decide which princess she wanted us to make a cake of, partly because I don't think she really understood what we were asking for. She finally decided on Cinderella. She's a little short, we actually had to temporarily yank off her legs to get her to fit. We like to think that she's kneeling down or something.

It's my party and I'll cry if I want to.

Here is Sydney in her princess pjs and with all of here princess dolls.

The girls got these really cool pillow princess books (you can see Logan's Cars pillow book in the background. What a good idea.
