Christmas Cookies

Today we spent the day at my Mom's baking and decorating Christmas cut-out cookies. My mom was so kind and patient with the two littlest helpers. They each got to roll out and help decorate. It took a lot longer because of our two little helpers and we had a few interruptions...like Kaiya telling me she had to pee in the potty every five minutes (almost). I think her motivation is the fact that she gets a little reward...usually something full of sugar, after she goes. She has been doing so well with staying dry, but today was not her day...two pairs of wet panties and one full of poo...you would think going every five minutes would prevent any accidents. Her newest phrase after going potty is "I'm excited"...probably knowing that a treat is coming. Caedmon made a football cookie...doesn't really go with the Christmas theme, but it seems like that is all he talks about lately. Frequently when he wakes up in the morning we will ask him what he dreamed about...you guessed it...football players every night. I guess we'll be having a football birthday party for him coming up real soon. My mom watched the kids while I left to get my hair cut during nap time and sent chili home with us for supper along with two sugar-filled kids. Thanks for a fun day, Mom.

Sorry about the soggy panties. (At least they weren't yours, ha.)

Now did you just get a trim or did you get yourself a cut? I agree with Heather, we need a picture!

Just got a trim and color touch-up on Thursday, so my hair looks the same minus a few grey hairs.

Kaiya made a complete turn around from her soggy panty day on Thursday. Yesterday she stayed dry the whole day and I was even shopping and held her off a few times.
