This is what we came up with:
Another couple had the same idea, except theirs was so much cuter. I love the clothes line behind the house. So cute!
Here are some other houses the couples created:Blue Christmas
The White House
We had so much fun! It was great seeing old friends and catching up. Thanks Hollie!

A little friend of Cade and Myla had a birthday party this weekend, complete with pony rides and a petting zoo. The kids had a blast. I mananged to get video of Myla taking her first pony ride. She was so brave! I think it helped that the pony was pink. :) Cade had a great ride too, after much observation of the other kids on the pony. We went slowly, starting off with just talking to the horse, then petting her, then sitting on her, then finally riding her. And as long as Mom was holding onto his hand or foot during the ride it was okay. Cade is a cautious child...something I really appreciate. I wish I could have cuaght him on video too. Just take my word for it, he was dang cute up there on that horse too.

Myla is telling a story about one of the horses.
It's one of my favorite things to find my kids snuggled under their blankets fast asleep...especially since we've been fighting naps lately.

Later on we were eating dinner and Cade had talked non-stop the entire dinner. So finally, I just needed some quiet and suggested that we play a fun game...The Quiet Game! Cade and Myla asked how to play, I explained that we all have to be really quiet and the first person to talk loses. Cade hates to lose, by the way. Yesterday he threw a monster fit because Kevin beat him in a race. Uh oh. Anyway, I said "Ready, set, be quiet!" It was deathly silent for about, oh, 3 seconds when Cade shouts out, "I love Thomas!" Kevin and I just busted up. So much for the quiet game.
Another funny thing Cade says is "to-later." We say tonight, tomorrow, today...he just figures we also say tolater.
I love the things kids say. Always original and sweet.
Here you can get a good look at them. Nice and frilly...perfect for feeling cute while doing the menial things around the house.
This picture makes me laugh. I probably took 10 pictures in this position but they would not tear their eyes away from Mickey Mouse on the TV. They said "cheese" the whole time, but wouldn't look at me.
The whole crew.

Well, he's doing the same thing with eating. He absolutely refuses to eat rice cereal, no matter what I do to it...add formula, add water, add apple juice, add apple sauce. Nothing works. He spits it out and makes this face that says, "Mom, seriously. What are you doing to me?"
Oh wait, he's not. He only ate it that one night and won't touch it again. On to plan B. The waiting game. When he's ready, he's ready. There's no rushing the milestones, no matter how badly we want to.
