I asked Shay what she wanted for breakfast, and she said, "Jelly Beans." Eventually she wanted oatmeal.
Lately she has been loving to play with pencils. She'll pretend they're people, and play "dead man" with them, or have them talk to each other. "Are you Joseph Smith? No, I'm your father. No, You're not my father, you're a girl!" She is pretty excited about the baby in my tummy. She'll say, "Can I hold the baby?" And then pretend to hold and take care of a tiny baby. "Can I see the baby?" I told her the baby has to stay in my tummy until he gets bigger and bigger. "He will come out around Christmas, and then you can hold him." She says she has a baby in her tummy too, and the other day she put a bottle of conditioner up her shirt and had it come out like it was a baby. Gavon doesn't really understand yet.

Are all 2 almost 3-year-olds this dramatic? For lunch today we had leftover artichoke lasagna, brocoli and home canned peaches. When I put a peach on Shay's plate, I cut it in half real quick, and she threw a fit. She refused to eat it and just screamed and cried, "I want a big one!" It's been like this for a while. Will she ever grow out of it?

Shay's new favorite thing is to fly a kite, and play with neighbors of course. She just started saying yesterday morning, "Nopey Nopey." We were watching the garbage man drive away, and I said, "Is he going to come back?" or something close to that, and she said, "Nopey, Nopey." She thought she was so funny.

We went to a Mall Easter Egg Hunt Saturday morning where they separated age groups and let the kids go get candy. Balloons were all over the floor, too. Gavon thought the balloons were way cooler than candy, so got one candy bar and threw the balloons around while other kids picked up candy. Shayden thought it was pretty fun. Easter morning we had the kids find their baskets full of candy. I have never seen them eat so much candy...SUGAR RUSH! It was like they would never get a chance to eat candy ever again. We had a great time watching conference, but we missed all the family get togethers going on. It makes me sad when we miss out on the fun.
Gavon playing with a balloon we took home from the egg hunt.
One night before bed, Gavon got so tired, and thought everything was hilarious. Shayden was sliding around in the kitchen in her one piece pajamas, and he was laughing like crazy.
Saturday between sessions we went to Macey's and pet some little baby goats, and road these log animals.
