The kiddos

Baby Rafe stopped taking a binky a couple days ago. It's made things interesting around here. Adam had a rough day at church because the boy just wouldn't nap. That's all kinds of fun. I guess that means we won't have to break him of it. He will rebel in a serious way if you try to give it to him, involving grabbing the binky and throwing it.

Rafe is SO mobile and crazy. Holding him for any amount of time is basically impossible. Which is why we're going to take him on a plane. As a lap child. Pray for us.

Lydia turns 3 this week. We'll be having a "Teddy Bear Picnic" Birthday party. She is all kinds of fun and has been enjoying learning about (and repeating) the Christmas nativity story.

A couple weeks ago, we asked her what she was doing. "Eating a treat. Because that's the way Yi (Lydia) rolls."

She has quite the sweet-tooth. We've told this story to almost everyone we know, so you've probably already heard it, but I thought I'd write it down so we can remember it.

A couple months ago, Adam and I went on a little impromptu date to a ghetto donut shop in town. We brought home a couple extras, thinking we would share one with Lyds in the morning. Apparently Adam showed her the donuts and told her she could have one in the morning. I didn't know that, and when I went down to the kitchen in the middle of the night, one of the donuts was gone. I assumed Adam had gotten snacky and didn't think much of it, leaving the other one for L in the morning. The next morning I went down to get Lydia her milk and cheerios (always first thing around here) and both donuts were gone. Again, I assumed Adam had gotten snacky and so I didn't mention the donuts. About an hour later, Adam asked me "did you and Lyds both get a donut this morning?" Clearly we had a donut thief in our midst. We asked Lydia if she had eaten a donut and she said "A brown one and a pink one!" At least she's honest. The kid is quiet. She must have eaten one after we thought she was in bed and then gotten up early and eaten the other. Really?

You will have a fun plane ride. We are so excited to see both of your children-- and you two. Love you

Lydia is awesome, but I can see your sneakiness giving you headaches when she is a teenager.

Good luck on the plane. I have survived that once now, and am not looking forward to doing it again at Christmas.

Are you going to Provo for Christmas? We will be there the 18th through the 27th.

No matter how many times I hear that Lydia story, I still chuckle. Enjoy the ride.

I love Lydia's story! And Rafe's personality! What cute, fun kids you have, Bonnie! Keep the stories coming! :)

I think Lydia is a ninja.

Funny funny funny. Miss your face. I was thinking today about your V-day baby. Hope he enjoys his year mark celebration. Life's crazy and good. Rosie is growing up way too fast--can't wait for Rafe and Rosie to meet (their names sounds just together to not be friends--or a TV show, or something). Have an awesome day!
