Water Fun

It's been way too long since I've blogged! I've missed it, but I have a good excuse. Reading Harry Potter was taking every free second I had, and we also had our niece and nephew here for a few days, so we spent a lot of time at the pool. So here are a few cute water pictures of Easton. I'm really glad he likes it, it makes it so much fun. But, and maybe some of you moms can help me with this...he all of a sudden HATES his bath. What used to be the most fun part of the evening is now the most dreaded, because he screams and absolutely hates it. I hope he gets over that real quick because I don't think it's very cool.




The next paragraph is going to be dedicated to Harry Potter, so if you don't care, or haven't finished reading it...don't look!

I love Love LOVED the last book so much! It was funny, sad, happy, romantic, hopeful, and so much more! The one prediction I was right about, was Snape. I love him so much. He's the best character by far. I was wrong about other things, and kind of glad I was. Like, I always thought Dumbledore would always be this perfect, wise old Wizard (which he was for the most part), but it was nice to see that he had some imperfections, and even a past that he wasn't so proud of. It humanized him more...or wizardized him more I should say. Whatever. I love that Ron was brave and smart in this one, and I love when he and Hermione kiss...that's the best! I was sick with sadness about Fred...and Lupid and Tonks; I loved them all! As always, I loved Luna, and it was great how Kreacher changed, my favorite chapter was the Prince's Tale and I LOVED the Epilogue! I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did!

Well since I haven't read any of the HP's I will just have to say that Easton is sooooo cute. We miss you, and Reagan wants to go on a date with Easton soon.

Easton is adorable and I've yet to fight a boy on bathing but somethings we've done would be popsicles, tub crayons, bubble baths, squirt guns, wearing swim suits to start, anyways it's always been a short short phase when we've faced it so hopefully it will be for you too!

Both of my girls went through the "hate the bath" stage. One thing that actually helped was bathing them in the morning instead of night. I eventually switched back to the night, but if I remember right(it's been awhile!) the stage flew over pretty fast!

My favorite chapter was the princes tale also. I re-read it 3 times. I LOVED it. I also loved the epilogue and what Harry named his kids.

OK where to begin- first of all- I didn't read the HP stuff- second- the laughing video of easton is so cute! I love it so much. I know what you mean- I HATE HATE HATE being tickled- I get so mad if Mike ever tries- and I HATED people who tickled me when I was younger- but it's so funy to do with other people- cause they laugh so much!!! The water pictures are so cute! Seriously- do you love having such a cute baby? when you were pregnant were you worried you might have an ugly baby- NOT because your ugly-ahahahah- but you know what I mean? Easton is so cute! Do you bathe him every night? That's really cool he likes the water- because Tanner was like afraid for awhile. You must be having so much fun with your family. You and jenny are so beautiful. How do you post videos? any time I've tried it doesn't work. THanks for the compliment of my hair- I needed to chop it off- I LOVE LONG HAIR- butI just don't take care of it- or fix it- and it drives me crazy to have hair in my face or neck- I always put it up anyway, so there's really no point for me to have long hair- and mike calls long hair "hippy hair." But I love long hair. And Emily-! I love value village so much! Like I'm addicted!!!!!

I love happy endings and so I was SO very glad JK Rowling gave it to me. Ron is my favorite character- I just adore him. Yeah, I am so glad Hermoine and he FINALLY got on the same page. Whew. What a great story about friendship, love, and loyalty.

Now get reading the Twilight series!
