H Quotes

Were about to play candyland
H: Presley is yellow.
me: oh, presley is playing with us?
H: well jesus and presley are yellow, they are playing together.

That night at dinner.
H: wheres my milk?
i go looking for it
me: where is your milk. i found it
H: (singing) Go shorty. you found it. go shorty. you found it
note: the only reason he knows this song is because we have a dancing blingy frog that sings a version of the song. go shorty, its your birthday. were gonna party like its your birthday, etc. And we got it from thads mom!

I go to check on him last night and he's reading in bed.
H: im learning to read
me: good. can i teach you to read tomorrow
H: no, Jesus is teaching me to read
Me : oh. thats good. So i cant teach you tomorrow?
H: no. Jesus is teaching me.

Also Hayden is now using the term forever. The other night in bed i went to check on him and he goes " you were taking forever mom". The next day on the way to BSF he goes, " its taking forever to get to school". We then talked about what forever means ......and that its not taking forever, just 10 min. And that it doesn't take forever to get to nana and papas either , just a long time. Then we went on to learn that only Jesus loves us forever, and heaven is forever. So now when asked what is forever, he just says Jesus! always a good answer!

I was wrong! If it was only that easy to say!
Hayden is doing a puzzle today while Im nursing. And Hayden is good at puzzles if i do say so! I love that it is something he can do independently. But anyways......he was working away, and i told him a piece was in the wrong place. So he figured out what piece i was pointing to with my foot, and then finds the right place. and says, " I was wrong..." in just a matter of fact kind of voice. and continues to repeat it about 3 times, " I was wrong". And im just sitting there thinking......and a little in shock, that he was just saying it like that....were really working on admitting when were wrong or sinning, and saying sorry. But i was more in shock like " WHY CANT I JUST SAY IT LIKE THAT!" like its no big deal. Dont get me wrong. ill say it.......but it probably takes 20 minutes of thought and then me crawling back to the person, not like Hayden's sweet quick response.
God has definitely been working on my pride but its always a work in progress! Thanks for the example sweet boy!

winter blues..

It seems like we have had colds forever! We probably were all sick with either colds, eye junk,cough or something for almost 3 weeks. And I was tired of it! And then it got worse!I guess God wanted to teach me to be thankful for when im healthy...or just to be thankful in general! He is a good God!
So of course.....on wed night, Hayden starting throwing up, but he was done by thurs morn and it was just coming out the other end. And Thad parents flew in on thurs night for an extended weekend visit. So Hayden was feeling good so we went out for dinner on Friday night. Then after we got home Presley, thad and I all got sick. Thad's dad got sick on sat night.......but his mom avoided it! yah. Thankfully it was a quick 12-24 bug.
Thad and I still got to go out for a night downtown on sun night. His mom is a trooper, i dont think she felt great but she still sent us off. We saw no strings attached and went out to dinner! It was great to get away for awhile and not feel sick.
So their trip was kind of a wash.....but they said it was okay to just relax and stay home. Because that is about all we did!
Hopefully we can avoid any more bugs that are around because this is twice for me in one month! and i never get sick...but i guess i cant say that anymore....

im back!

I'll try to give a brief update on everything that has been going on!

Sept- I started BSF ( bible study fellowship) and it has been WONDERFUL! I am learning so much about our Lord and His truths! Hayden and Presley also go but we call it school for Hayden and he loves it!
Thad also started back to school. He got a specialist ELL job offer 2 days before school started. He would have loved this job, but for many reasons turned it down. Basically because it was to last minute and to close to school starting.
Doc and Gigi came out for a visit and we went to Whidbey Island!

Oct- All i can remember is Halloween. Hayden was Bob the Builder and Presley was a ladybug, or butterfly, take your pic. We did 3 Halloween outings ( overkill) one west seattle outing, one church outing, and then our neighbourhood on the actual day. We went with our friend Samantha (Sam) who was an Oregon Ducks Cheerleader!

Nov- We went up to Canada for American Thanksgiving. Probably better to stay in America for that, no one has Thurs off!
Our friends Phil and Erin came with us to Vancouver for a day! Lots of fun, no kids!
( Hard to remember anything else??)

Dec- BUSY! Doc, Gigi, and thad's grandma mimi, came for a long weekend to celebrate christmas! lots of fun
Hayden's 3rd Birthday.
Presley got dedicated at church
Uncle Chip and Aunt Becca came for a week visit after christmas!
New Years Party!!! fun fun

Jan- Thad got an award at school for "Making a Difference in Diversity". Also Thad has gotten a summer teaching job at UW!! whoot whoot! This is great for his resume!
We are currently on the preschool hunt for next year! exhausting!!
Presley is doign great. Eating, STILL has nor rolled from her back to front!!! not crawling either, but pushing backwards. She is clapping and today she said "more" in baby sign.....but she probably thought it was clapping. She is a babbler also!!! we love her to death!!!!!!
We have been sick with colds for 2 weeks, so we desperately want to shake that!

Other than that...i cant think to much is new. I just feels super busy adn tiring ( as to why my blog is so so so pitiful!) But since im up by 6 everyday, i think ill try to blog while we watch our 1/2 tv and i down coffee in the morn. well see.

Also Thad has begun brewing beer with his friend Phil. They LOVE IT and have made a double dryhopped IPA, chocolate stout...and a pale, not sure on that last one?!

presley lauging

I have been trying to upload this video for days. I think i did it twice and then forgot and it hasnt worked like 4 times. so here it is!

Imaginary Friend

We have an imaginary friend at our house. His name is Jesus.
It all started when Hayden started getting scared at night. We told him that he was not alone and that Jesus was here with him. We prayed, etc. It seemed to work.
Then soon Jesus started showing up alot. He would come upstairs with us and downstairs, and outside. And then in the car (thankfully we have an extra seat for Jesus in our car), and then in the bath. Hayden had just gotten off teh potty and was about to go in the bath when he says, " Jesus has to go potty to and then come in the bath too!" Okay, Jesus is going potty and going in the bath.
This morning Hayden comes down the stairs and is still half asleep and says, "Jesus is coming down the stairs to" I mean, the kid was not even awake!
I am definelty learning something from Hayden, Jesus is always with us, and he see's ALL my actions. One day He will be here and I'll have to account for them all, so maybe this imaginary friend Jesus will help me out.....and maybe he's not so imaginary!
