But that's not all. He is so sweet with the biggest smile and most caring heart. He takes care of Myla and loves to share with his friends. He love to color and create things. He loves his daddy and can't wait for him to come home every day. He is such a big helper around the house and loves to help vacuum or sweep. He is so smart and loves say the alphabet and his numbers and play his preschool games on the computer. He is such a joy to Kevin and I. Here is a little montage of his three years!

I saw this fun generator that would give you your redneck name. So I put my name in and this is what it came up with:
What's so funny is that it's my real name: Christie Rae!

Emma took like 10 pics of herself. She did a great job! I think she is a budding photographer.
Little Jared took this pic of Papa. He kept putting his fingers over the flash giving it a nice artistic shadow. :)
I think Cade took this pic of his Uncles James and Jared. Not bad!
Cade took this one of Breck and Uncle Kevin being silly!
Emma took this great picture of my mom. Awesome!
Emma took this funny picture of Bradley.
Dawn and Miss Myla looking cool in her shades.
Emma took this one of silly Aunt Christie.

All you Arizonans...have you felt it? Do you feel the change? Fall is here...this week anyway. The mornings are cooler and I am able to take the kids outside in the morning and not melt. The smell of the air is different, people are getting allergies, and halloween stuff is going up! In honor of fall I changed my header to a Halloweeny them.
- Swallow a tablespoon of sugar.
- Get a glass of water, put a silver butter knife in it and drink it upside down. (If any of you can actually pull this off I'd pay money to see it.)
- Drink lemon juice by the glass.
- Ask someone to scare you. (Not likely going to happen since I asked him to scare me, therefore I am expecting it.)
- Hold your breath and jump up and down.
- Drink lots of water.
None of these have worked for me, so I googled "cures for hiccups." The results gave me quite a chuckle. Here are the ones I found most funny or unusual.
* Jump out of a plane.
* Think of all the bald men you can.
* Tell yourself "I'm not going to hiccup again."
* Don't do anything; just wait for the next hiccup.
* Close your eyes and visualize a neon sign, like a movie marquee; see the word "THINK" blinking on and off; concentrate on the sign and make the word blink as fast as possible.
Imagine a neon blue color, coming from between your eyes, (also known as the third or psychic eye) and directing it down the centre of your chest to the xiphisternum and then washing calmly across the diaphragm, from one side to the next and back continuously.
* Don't swallow.
* Say "pineapple."
* Count to twenty with your fingers in your ears.
* Urinate; concentrate on both peeing and breathing.
* Gently rub your ear lobe until the hiccups are gone.
* Rub the back of your tongue to stimulate the gag reflex.
* Try to say "now!" out loud just before your next hiccup.
* Hold your tongue with your thumb and index finger and gently pull it forward.
* With one hand, apply pressure to the gums above your front teeth and to a point just below your nose.
* Take a finger full of hair from the crown of your head and as hard as you can stand (though not hard enough to pull the hair out) for 10 seconds. * Breathe slowly into your shirt.
* Read about hiccups online.
* Immerse your face in ice water.
* Balance something on your nose.
There you have it. If you ever get the hiccups you are armed with a variety of remedies for them! If my hiccups aren't gone tomorrow I may try jumping out of a plane, or saying pineapple over and over again.

Myla has been...well...being Myla. She has the cutest smile, which usually makes up for the little attitude she's been giving us lately. But even with the attitude she is so sweet and loves to cuddle and give lovies. This week she said her first word...ball. She is growing and learning so fast we can hardly keep up with her. It's so fun to watch.
I, as you can see, am continuing with digital scrapbooking. I've spent so much time the past several weeks looking for scrapbooking ideas and tutorials and supplies. I am finally getting to work and creating things. It's so much fun!
