A couple of days ago, Canyon told Nana "Mommy bought me some Cookie Crisp because it was on sale AND she had a coupon for it." So funny!!! He doesn't ask for things at the store, he just asks if I have a coupon or if it is on sale. He's learning young!!! So funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We used acrylic paint, and I knew I was going to have to hover to make sure they didn't paint anything or each other. Well, as I was watching them so intently, I learned a lot about them!
Canyon - I always knew he stuck his tongue out to concentrate, so this was nothing new. It is almost like he can't concentrate without sticking his tongue out though. He was very meticulous with his design and had to cover every single spot. He was very insistent on painting the inside as well.
Carter - Carter didn't need much time to paint his treasure box. Of course he used alot of pink, but he used the other colors as well. He didn't seem to notice that there were spots he didn't cover with paint, the spots his brothers worked so hard to avoid. Carter also does this funny wiggle thing with his tongue while he is working. He just puckers his lips a bit and wiggles his tongue side to side. Funny boy.
Conner - He is the one that really surprised me with his attention to detail. Conner sat there for at least 15 minutes longer than both brothers. And for a 3 year old, I was impressed. He worked very hard and put a lot of thought into his choices of color. Of course, I bought green just for him and he used a lot of green! While I watched his face, he seemed VERY focused and very serious. He did none of the other weird things with his tongue like his brothers.

So Andy was giving the kids a bath tonight and he noticed Canyon playing with his "berries", and he proceeded to tell Andy that he feels something in there, what is in there??? So Andy tells him that they are his testicles. So Canyon's response is "you mean like it the same as Squidward's last name - testicles?" (For those of you who don't watch Spongebob as much as we do, Squidward's last name is Tentacles!!!)
Anyways, so the funny thing was that Canyon came home and said he didn't want to get his face painted because his friends at school "wouldn't know his name with his face painted". What?? It was too funny!!!!!!

1.) Conner and Carter have been doing an amazing job with potty training. They go in the bathroom and do everything themselves, then Conner will just come and bring his undies and pants to have us put them back on him. Carter is so independent that he will get his pants back on himself, whether they are on correctly or not, even if we are there to help him. Oh, and they are sitters, so they take their pants all the way off every single time. UGH!!!!! Anywho... now to the funny part. They still haven't been going number two in the potty, only a couple of times actually. Well, we got some of the CARS race cars to reward them with hoping that would work, but it didn't. Both boys will tell you that they get a new race car when they do the deed, but they still wouldn't do it. So Conner did get one yesterday (YAY!), and daddy got a few more cars out of his prize stash and they were so excited. Conner wanted the Mario Andretti car so bad that he ran in a went number two in the potty right then!!! Andy and I about fell over. It was so funny and so exciting!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So we will see how long it lasts, or how big the collection of race cars gets before this whole process is over. And Canyon felt extremely left out, so he is earning race cars by keeping his room and the toy room clean. If he can do it, I'll keep us well stocked in race cars, that's for sure. Mommy needs a little help in the cleaning department.
2.) I bought a couple of dresses at Marshall's the other day and I was trying them on for my mom while the boys were in the bathtub. I walked in wearing one of the dresses and Conner said that mommy looks like a princess like grandma! I thought it was the sweetest thing ever. I had to call Grandma right away!!! Too sweet!!!!!

I wanted him to wear his sweatband headband thing, but he only wore if for like 30 seconds.
Snack time is everyone's favorite...

-I gave him some chocolate candy in the car and he had chocolate all over his hands. I made a comment about how I had no napkins or wipes to clean him up and he just said "Don't worry Mommy, I can just taste it off!" I thought it was the cutest thing!
-The other night, he was laying with me in bed. I was reading The Chocolate War, which has a character named Carter. I pointed to the name Carter and ask him what it said and he said Conner first, then Carter. I continued reading, and he pointed out a question mark. He said something about how he found a "mystery" and it has "a c with a line and a polka dot". I thought it was too funny. I asked him where he learned this and he quickly said Mickey Mouse (the mystery mouskatool is a question mark).
-The boys both have their "tee-tee". They both got attached to these "uncute" little bear blankie things that were once yellow. They have carried them around since they were little bity. So Carter has started chewing on his, which Conner hates when he picks up Carter's wet tee-tee, and Carter usually gets them both wet and nasty. So I've had to wash them as much as possible. Every time they come out of the dryer, it is a big deal, and Conner will smell it over and over and say "tastes good"!
More to come...

Didn't take long for everyone to get wet... (the water was FREEZING, but Johnna got in because she said it was warm-crazy Kentucky people!!)
Canyon's pants wouldn't stay up...
Aubrie digging in the sand...
We all dug holes in the sand and tried to build some sand castles. Carter and Conner mostly just wanted to step on the sand castles.
And afterwards, we tried to get everyone dressed, but Carter just wanted to run away!!! He didn't care who saw, either...
