Is that a TERD in your hand?????? we were getting ready this morning. Camden was busy getting into her uniform and I was running back and forth between getting my self ready (brush teeth, wash face, makeup, jeans, t-shirt and ball cap) and dressing Berkleigh Boo. Had to go get a tire changed today! (Waste of a morning)

SIDE NOTE~ (Spider webbing as my friend Michelle would say)

Now Camden Hope was completely potty trained by 21 months old and Berkleigh has been very aware of her diaper actions. She will just out of no where give you this big surprised smile and say,"MUM, MUM, Pee Pee!" or "poot, poot" She has recently asked to sit on the potty. This is where she sits with her proud posture and just babbles at you because she has your complete attention. Then she gets her 5 1/2 feet worth of TP to wipe and flushes the potty a mere 4 times. All for no Pee Pee or POOT!

This morning I got Berkleigh changed and out of her PJ's. Her clothes were to come next, but she was busy dancing to the Doodle Bops, so I snuck off to finish getting ready. When I came out she was hollering with such pride," Mum..Mum.... I Pee Pee"

OH MY! that a terd in your hand!!???! I froze! (No little terd either)Instincts kicked in.. I grabbed it... flushed it... and LOTS of antibacterial soap for Momma and Berkleigh!

Yep, I guess I am going to have to work on the difference between Pee Pee and Poots!

I love my life!

HAT!!! That is what we hear on a regular basis in the house now. Berkleigh is obsessed with hats. Now we still have to have a bow every morning when Sissy gets her hair done for school. Oh yes, we can't leave the house with out a bow to match our pajamas and bare feet!

Now that it is fall and the weather has been amazing, we are enjoying the outdoors. Whenever we are headed outside Berkleigh yells HAT! If it is time to take Chloe for a walk, HAT! While I am making dinner for no reason what so ever, HAT! You get the picture.

We were getting ready to pick up sissy and Berkleigh wanted a yogurt. Before I could even offer her to drink it on the patio,table or kitchen floor(yes. I'm one of those moms) She was sitting on the patio waiting for her yogurt. She was precious.She had her feet propped up on the railing, sitting on her stool, just looking out into our courtyard enjoying the view. I sat there watching her, wondering what was going through her little mind. Her little head with the HAT!~

Betsy Bear

One day last week when I picked Camden she had a bear in her back pack. There was a note attached to the bears school uniform. It read,

"Today Camden was very thoughtful and kind. A classmate needed a crayon and Camden let her borrow hers. Her friend didn't even have to ask her. Betsy Bear, our kind friend, is coming home to spend the night with Camden."

How Awesome! Camden was so very proud and we were too. She has such a sweet giving heart and I am glad she was recognized for that. Way to go Camden!

October 31st~

Yes October 31st was 3 weeks ago and I am just now posting some photos. Slacker mom .

Camden and Berkleigh were absolutely beautiful for Halloween. Camden Hope was Cinderella and Berkleigh Faith was Snow White. Camden had a party and "parade" at school in the afternoon. The girls were all dressed and hyped up on party cupcakes.

That evening we went to a local church for a fall festival. It was wonderful. Everyone was so pleasant, the games and stuff were indoors and there was even a hay ride.

My only disappointment for the evening was the pre festival photo shoot. Berkleigh, I mean Snow White, was in all of her glory and refused photos. Screaming, crying and at one point she chucked her crown on the ground. I just had to laugh and then take pictures of her. There WILL be pictures! Camden's photos were much easier, but probably not nearly as funny.

The girls were gorgeous and we had a great time. Camden told me that her favorite part of the evening was not the candy or the hay ride or all the fun games. Her favorite part was when we took 5 mins and drove to her teacher's house, Mrs. Baden, so she could "trick or treat" there. I love that she savors the little things in life:0)
