Dexter taking a beating from older cousin Julian

Thursday, December 03, 2009

Some things we did while dad is away.

While daddy is gone for 12 days to the Marshall Islands and Guam, we did a few things Like:

Get new tires on the car...

Darla perfected her down-dog position...

Had a Pot Luck at church. Jenny and Cavin had fun holding Darla and Dexter. Jenny always wants to watch them and Cavin LOVES DARLA!!! I asked why he likes to always hold Darla and he said that Dexter kicks him so it is hard to hold on to him. Darla and Cavin have a 6 year difference...they could totally get married one day!!!! We love little Cavin. Even though he thought Chris was a stripper by profession. Yes...when asked by his parents what Chris does for work he said Chris goes to work NAKED with his clothes in his back pack. His parents were laughing when they told me this and I was shocked and embarrassed... then I realized that Chris would go surf in the mornings when I would babysit Cavin and Chris would bring his clothes in his back pack for work. He would leave the house in board shorts and no NAKED I guess? So funny.

After church we went to the Bennett's to hang for a minute. Shae was rolling his toy car on Dexter's back. What buddy's they will be in the future!

The next day Darla took a 4 hour nap!! From 8am-12 noon!!!!!! She did not even flinch when I snapped the flash in her face. Then she still took a 2 hour after noon nap. What a good Beauty sleeper!

And of course...while she was sleeping I committed the sin of dressing Dex like a woman against his will. But we have already talked about this.

And you wonder where Chris gets the cross dressing from? Chris has more cleavage than me!
DADDY....COME HOME!!!!!!!!! we are going to head to California today til daddy gets back...We have new cousin baby Elizabeth to meet and cousin Julian to hang with.

...and Disneyland to visit. Yes I have a California drivers license for the sole purpose of having a southern california annual Disneyland pass! (It's the cheapest)

Dextina - (No, this is not Darla!)

It all started when Dexter tried on Brin's head band....Then DEXTINA came out!

-I know........bad mom!

I promise I will wait until he is older to show him these maybe his 16th birthday when all of his friends are in the room.

First we removed the Turkey from the fridge...

Then washed it...Then seasoned it...

Then stuffed it...Then cooked it with love and an apple.

While it cooked we the wives went surfing...
(This is me, Katie, Meg and Jonna...if you can see our heads)The babies chilled with was really windy.

They finally get to wear their hoodies.

One little, two little three little Indians.... (so not politically correct)
The Indians attacking the Pilgrim...

Indie picked a winner.

Brighton was all smiles.
Dexter trying to sound out a word.

The babies chilled with Daddy before he left for the Marshall Islands and Guam for 12 DAYS!
I love my family!

This is Darla wearing a vintage romper that I ordered on ebay. It is supposed to be from the 1940's. It's handmade and so cute on her.

Once a day I feed the babies in the tub and hose them off afterwards. If they have a rash from a new food that they have tried then I put warm water and baking soda in the bumbo so their bums can soak in it. It helps soothe and heal the rash. They love to bang around in there and make loud noises. Sorry Neighbors!!!
After bath time we compared their butt size. Darla definitely has a bigger rump....I dont know WHERE she got it from.....

They ALWAYS play together. So far I have only had to break up one fight. Dexter had Darla against the wall and he was repeatedly rolling her into the baseboard. She was pretty mad at him. HE smiled the whole time. Thats what happens from months of bullying from Darla!

Eliza loves to laugh at Dexter when he is doing nothing. When the twins were inside of me they would go crazy and kick whenever I held baby Eliza. It was cool.

Chris is 31, has 2 kids and tried to grow a mustache for Mo-vember. Maybe it was a bad idea. This is over 3 weeks of growth. I told him to fill the blonde hairs in with brown mascara. He refused. The good part is that he really just needs to shave twice a week. How easy! I dont like hair anyway. He is perfect for me.Chris made this beauty for Dex. I call it a "Tummy time Surf Mat"

complete with a tri-fin system.

He was stoked to paddle out on it.Brin took a turn....

...she stood up on her first try!
Chris is making a skate mat for be continued...
