The kids don't seem to be bothered by this at all......look, hands in pockets, like they were asked to pose or something? Run! RUN for your LIVES! C'mon you guys!!! Christopher thinks he's on a roller coaster, or maybe the Dino just said "stick em up."
Well we made it through that one....Now here is Cameron, showing Zoey something interesting....
We found this dino and before we knew it all the kids were inside it, then the adults felt like it wasn't fair we were expected to act like adults and wanted in on the fun....but we had a little trouble getting in there.....
Here's Zoey looking out the Dino's eyes....she's such a cutie!
All the Adults got in the thing.....
So we took them on a two mile hike in the mud to wear them all out. (it snowed that morning and covered everything with three inches of snow...by 4 it looked like this, just sunny and muddy!)

October 4th, 2009....
Cameron is very silly, and indecisive..He must get it from his dad. :)
He says the negatory of things immediatly after the other....
"But I wont, but I will,"
"But I can't but I can"
"But he does oh oh yeah, he doesn't!"
Back Before the end of the binky, these three binkies were a joke, but he'd do this more often than you'd think, he'd have two in sometimes. His binkies were toys to him, he had like 20 at one point, when he was 1 1/2 to like 3 he'd carry around a bucket of binkies as toys (this worked GREAT for us at church) he's pop one out, chose another and pop that in without a moments hesitation, there's not rhyme or reason for when he'd do this, he could be in the middle of doing something, totally engrossed in a toy or a movie and just sporadically switch binkies, it was like second nature to him.
I'll say at night before bed to Cameron (as not to announce "Bedtime!" and thus induce the fit of the century) instead, I put a positive spin on it and I'll say "It's almost time for songs and stories Do you want to clean up first or go do songs and stories? Which one?" Then I get what I want and he gets to put off the inevitible bedtime routine for 30 seconds longer.
Once we're on our way to "Thongs and Thtories" (we have issues with S's) he has to go potty and brush teeth first, if he does that all well without complaint or delay he gets 3 stories and 5 songs before bed...but I take one away of each if he annoys me...oh, I mean if he doesn't do what he should. :) parental bribery....Anyway,
Well, today I said, do you want to finish your cornbread or do songs and stories?" He said, "Moooooooooom, say "Which one!" You're possa say which one, foos!" (First)I didn't realize I had an exact script to follow. :)
He's picking up some girlie habits at daycare I'm afraid. He'll say, "I not talking a you any moa!" (more) and "You not gonna be my friend!" and turn his head and pout. Or he'll say, "But moooooooooooooooom! that's not faya!" (fair) Oh wait, maybe that's a teenage one...
"When I grow up, I'm going to have TWO "N's" in my name just like Nathan!"
And, He'll tell me what he will be able to do when he gets bigger like this, "When I grow big like a brutha (Brother), I'm going to....."
"Am I falling out of this chair" Thanksgiving 2008
Cute! He just broke out in a sporadic happy dance!
He said today 1/15/09....
"Mom, I'm hungry and drinky." For Thirsty! :)
Cameron was watching me take out Chocolate Chip cookies from the oven, I gave him a glass of milk and a cookie that was cooled, then I gave him another one just out of the oven still warm, he said "I d0n't want a bendy cookie I want a fixed cookie!"
This is the not so subtle difference between the out of the oven melty break apart ones (MY favorite) and the cooled ones you can dip into milk without the cookie breaking apart.
Yesterday he told me (4/5/09), "Mom, you need to have patiench!" (Patience) when I was asking him twice to clean up his crayons
4/6/09 -Today I said to Cameron "It's Spring!" he said, "Is it time to go to Nama and Papa's house yet?" I said "No, that's in the Summertime" he said, "I don't like Spring, I only like Summer." With a pout.
4/8/09 This morning he cuddled with me in bed (early 530am ritual) and said "Mom, I want you to stay home and make it a Cameron, Nathan, Daddy, Puppies day." I said I would go to work but be home soon and then it would be, he said, "Mom, you have to tell your work peoples.....um, what are they called?", I said "Workers", he said "K, wukers, that you need to stay home with yo Camwon and hug and snuggle awl day instead K?" Amen baby. Amen.
