Coffee Beans

THE TRICK IS TO FIND THE MAN IN THE COFFEE BEANS:
This is bizarre - after you find the guy - it's so obvious. Why didn't I see him immediately?
Doctors have concluded that if you find the man in the coffee beans in 3 seconds, the right half of your brain is better developed than most people.
If you find the man between 3 seconds and 1 minute, the right half of the brain is developed normally.
If you find the man between 1 minute and 3 minutes, then the right half of your brain is functioning slowly and you need to eat more protein.
If you have not found the man after 3 minutes, the advice is to look for more of this type of exercise to make that part of the brain stronger!!!
And, yes, the man is really there!!!

Easter Bunnies and Accidents

Anyone want some dinner???

Did you find an egg Autumn???

New cousin's MaKayde and Cash. They are a few weeks apart, and growing into cute little guys. I believe they make Ryan want a little boy more, each time he held one of them, he would get this dreamy look on his face and talk "googy" talk to them.

Here's our little Autumn, with the boys. She is 8 and 10 months older than the boys. They are laying in order of birth from left to right.

It was Jed's b-day last Friday, so he got to blow out his candles....after Brocston. Broc got to them first, so we had to relight them for Jed.

Here's my little Easter Bunny.

Opening their Easter from G-ma and G-pa Bliesner.

It was a very, VERY cold Easter Egg hunt for the city. Cambry was not happy, and Autumn was down-right ticked off. She yelled at us for an hour, then fell asleep. Cambry got a bunch of eggs, and the hunt only lasted about 30 sec's because the kids just run and scoop. Then on the other side of the field, there are the sponser's with more goodies for the kids. Each egg has a company lable taped to it, and they were giving out little things from easter toys, to 1 lbs chocolate bunnies. It was a lot of fun...but very cold.

Coloring Easter Eggs with G-ma and Cambry's friend Charly.

Cambry and Charly finding eggs in my front yard. Please note that there is STILL snow in Idaho.

So we had a bit of an accident the other day. I had some scissors in my church bag that fell out, and Cambry found. Well I had parted her hair with a zig-zag part and had two little pig-tails with the hair from her ears up, and she decided to cut her hair like "Mulan". So she snipped off one of her pig-tails, and some other hair. Here you can see how much she had cut off. Not too bad, but then we found that she had snipped in other places, so we had to even it all up.

This was how long her hair used to be.....

This was during her hair cut. My friend Beth helped me cut Cambry's hair.

We put some mouse in and blowed it dry...She's not really even sad that it's all gone...She says that it's short, "like mommies" and seems to like it.

And here she is after her bath last night and after we just blowed her hair dry...I was going to do layers, but I hope this will help all her hair thicken up...

Cambry on our Snow Drift

Who needs a sledding hill? We've got a snow drift worth riding!!!

video

So here's some video of Cambry sledding down the huge snow drift in our backyard. She got to ride all the way to the back steps and did this for about 3 hours, until the wind picked up and began to freeze my sweeties out. Autumn's cheeks go bright red, just like mine did when I was little.

Conversation with a 3 year old.

So my friend Sandra did this, and I thought it would be funny to share some things that my little one has said.

The other day we were driving and drove passed a nasty smell and asked Cambry,

"What's that smell."

Cambry said, "It's a snunk. Peeee-you, that snunk is stinky."

Then we asked her something else, which she ignored and announced:

"That snunk was hiding in his "heidi-hole" (hiding-hole) stinking it up. That's why snunks are stinky."

To which Ryan and I chuckled loudly and asked Cambry to repeat what she had just told us. If you want to hear Cambry telling you about a snunk, scroll down to around October and you can hear her yelling about the snunk!!!

I love hearing kids mispronounce things.

Snow, showers and smiles

8' plus in the backyard.
So it snowed a bit here!! I'm standing in our driveway and there are snow drifts behind me that are well over 6 feet in some places and range from 3-8 feet high around the house. The top picture is of my backyard and that snow drift is going over our 8' plus fence. Cambry has been sledding on it. Cambry sledding....please note that no harm came to the kitten. This kitten will do just about anything with Cambry and has gone sledding, swimming, and slidding and swinging....oddly all "s" words.

Rosey cheeked from playing outside.

Does anyone else's kids fall asleep while eating in their highchairs? Mine have both done this.

Sister's forever having fun!

Baby shower for SIL Nalani. She has since had her little boy and we can't wait to see him!!! Autumn laughing. I told her to "smile" and this is what she gave me...please note she has only 2 teeth, and it's been that way since she was 4 months old....no more have come in.


Little Preston dressing up with Cambry.

Cutting out hearts for FHE!!! at g-ma's and g-pa's.
