Too much fun

I was going to write about a few things that didn't make me extremely happy, but then I read my sisters blog about her blessings. That was a much better idea, so I'm just going to post some cute pictures instead of complaining. These next two pictures were of the shaving cream painting we tried out with Kaycee Bott, and Jenna McHargue. Kember had just woken up from a nap so she wasn't really into it, and did not want to get her hands dirty. She was much happier when she figured out to use the spoon to paint instead.
I love this picture. I stuck Caden on Dan's study chair and we played the "Whee!" game...which is just spinning him around and around. This is one of Kember's favorite games, and apparently Caden's too.This is one of my kids favorite activities. They follow me around all day with books. They don't do so well in the same chair together so we have to take turns, which the other kid, the one of the floor, doesn't like much. Cadens favorite book is "10 Minutes till Bedtime" by Peggy Rathmann. No matter where I put it, he finds it and brings it to me. Kember is getting loads better at actually listening to the story, so it's fun to read to her now. Caden loves to turn the pages, which makes reading the story challenging if Kember is around. I love my kids, they re too cute.

I love the pictures, but you haven't told us about getting a new camera. Are you borrowing one or did you really take the plunge?

You tried the shaving cream! What did you think?

I love the look of mild revulsion on Kember's face in the second picture.
I've tried "hiding" books of Joey's too, the ones he wants to read over and over and over and over again, but he always finds them. Nate's better than I am. He'll read whatever Joey wants; with me, if we've already read it once that day, I'll tell him to get something else.

It makes me so happy that they loves books and reading and even happier that they have a Mom that will read to them!

My kids love being read to too. With them getting older, we are reading chapter books. Collin reads picture books to Chelsea while we are doing this. We just finished "Fablehaven" and are not reading "Where the Red Fern Grows"

So cute! I was wondering about the camera too.
