Arwenisms: "I don't know what it is, but I know what it eats like." Translation (I think)--It's yummy.
Noahisms: "Maggots." He will stand at the fridge and scream for the MAGNETS.
He sings this little song of everything he loves. It goes like this: "Ahhh, Mommy, ahhh Daddy, ahhh Sissy, ahhh baby, ahhh Grandpa, ahhh blankey."
He runs around the house saying, "Ut Dis?" (what this) to everything. It's so fun.

This wasn’t actually my trick, and I agree it’s pretty gross; stuff like this keeps the kids from getting into unsupervised mischief though. The trick I shared with them at camp was creating huge fire balls with non-dairy creamer, a trick we put to good use in the BYU days. We’d load it into a potato gun (after the potato) and shoot it over a bonfire and bam! Our displays at camp were not so impressive but the boys liked it. Sadly we have no pictures of that.

"Grandma, you're the man!" Don't ask me--I have no idea where she got it from!
My mom got a new purse while she was here. She had the one she liked and showed it to Arwen. Arwen said, "No Grandma, you don't want that one! It's full of garbage." It had the paper stuffing in it still and Arwen thought we were going to buy a purse full of trash. Besides she thought Grandma Carrot should have gotten the one that was silver with shiny sequins all over it!

Saturday, we went to some friends' family reunion so Aaron could play ultimate frisbee with them. The kids and I played at the playground nearby and Joshy just slept in his stroller. After that we went to the farmer's market for some blueberries. Yummy! Aaron and Arwen camped out in the back yard in our tent. Me and Arwen took a nap in it today after church! It was sure fun. Our poor Joshy is really colicy every night. He just screams and cries. He and I go for walks, but even those don't help him too much. Poor baby!
We've been trying to get Arwen not to say, "Oh my gosh," and the like. So now she says, "Oh my donk," which is short for, "Oh my donkey!" of course!
We had chicken for dinner one night and Arwen said, "Where does chicken come from? Cows?" By the way, every meat is "chicken" for Arwen--even shrimp!
Noah is awesome at saying prayers now! After he's done, he makes the sign for more and asks to say more prayers.

Noal lost his shorts somehow in all of the sludge. Then he found a plastic cup and started to drink the "yuumy water." I ran over and told him "NO!!" and as I walked back to my picnic table all the other moms were looking at me in disgust. Yeah, they were pretty much jealous that my kid was the grossest one there!
Noah was an ugly fish the whole time. I couldn't get him to look at the camera once. I finally had to bribe him with a cracker. What a cute dirty little boy!

This is a picture of Arwen and her friend Jake. She says Jake is sad because he misses her.
This was her first picture of Jake. I ran inside to get the camera and when I got back she had made him into a scurvey pirate! (at least that's what I think he looks like--she said he was sad and crying!)
