Can’t pass up these pics!

Oh these boys just melt my heart!!! Today we went for a walk on the walking trail by our house! We had to put on some sunglasses!!  They are infant sunglasses so they were a little small for David and his large head.  Booms wore them for about 5 seconds then took them off to eat them.  He dropped them on the walk and then we realized he dropped them when we found them on the way home!!  David “rode” his bike.  The way David rides a bike is by sitting on it and pulling the old Fred Flintstone and uses his feet instead of the pedals! So cute! I tried to get him to pedal but he was not interested!  Then he decided that he wanted to walk/run for a while and then towards the end he wanted me to carry him.  So there is mom pushing a stroller with a large infant in it, the bike in the basket of the stroller, and carrying a 2.5 year old while pushing the stroller one-handed!!! Ok  if that is not a multi-tasker then I don’t know what is!!! I am a multi-tasker at heart though, it gets my blood flowing!!!

 Today was a big day for David because he threw away his pacifier!  He never liked pacifiers until the day Jonathan was born he would pretend to be a baby.  Then when we drove from Ca. to Tn he sucked on one the whole car ride! It kept him content though!! So we would try to hide them but he would always find them! Well just recently he found one and has been sucking on that thing day and night.  So last night Brian told him that he would buy him a scooter if he threw away his pacifier.  So at that minute he took his pacifier and threw it in the trash and then jumped up and down to get the scooter.  We told him he would have to wait until tomorrow so he got the  pacifier out of the trash and went on his way! So today we went to target and got a scooter with three wheels and a dinosaur helmet to go with it. He just stands on the scooter and tries to jump and make it move.  We have tried to teach him how the scooter works but he has not quite figured it out yet.  So he plays with it for a while and then asks where his pacifier is.  We tell him it’s in the trash and that we said he got the scooter because he threw the pacifier away.  He said he didn’t want the scooter anymore and that he wanted the pacifier!! Oh my poor baby.  I hope he forgets about that thing soon.  It’s so hard to see them so upset when they don’t understand what is going on.  So we will see how tomorrow goes without the pacifier!!!

I love these boys so much! Everyday they just melt my heart!  I am so blessed to be their mommy! Thank you Lord!!


Our first Cannon family night!

It was Brian’s awesome idea to have this family night! He said “let’s make pizza and watch Bolt”.  I was so excited for this night to come I could hardly contain myself.  This is what being a family is all about.  Making special memories together and loving on each other!  So for dinner we made homemade pizza! It was super easy.  You take 2 tubes of biscuits and quarter them.  Lay them down in a grease casserole dish.  Brown up some hamburger meat and add a jar of pizza sauce.  Pour that on top of the biscuits and bake at 400 for 20 minutes.  Add a cup of cheddar cheese and 1.5 cups of mozzarella cheese to the top and bake another 5-10 minutes.  Super easy and really yummy! My family loved it.  Jonathan was really tired so he screamed through much of dinner which was so lovely!!  We gave the kids a bath and then started the movie.  Jonathan made it for about 20 minutes then he went to bed! A movie watcher just like his mother!! I actually stayed awake the whole time, and I am very proud of myself for that! David loved the movie, Bolt.  His eyes were glued to the tv the whole time.  He just wanted to cuddle the entire movie with his mommy.  Oh what a special gift to cuddle with your baby boy.  He said he was hungry so we made some popcorn.  Davids new thing is to find pacifiers and pretend he is a baby so he had two pacifiers the whole movie, one for his mouth and a bottle nipple for his hand.  When the movie was over and the credits were rolling, David got up and was dancing to the music.  So then Dad got up and started dancing with him and then they made mommy get up and start dancing! Then we had a bunch of family hugs because David thought this was so funny and we all went to bed! It was an amazing night and I look forward to our family nights in the future. 

Thank you God for my precious family! May I rear my boys in a way that brings honor to you and help me to love and cherish my husband as you have called me to! Amen
