Weekly Quote 6/27/11

"These mashed potatoes are so creamy." is from While You Were Sleeping. Great show. I think my favorite part is when they show the paper boy tossing newspapers and suddenly his bike tips over. Completely random. New quote up!

Kate has been officially potty trained for quite a while now. She still wears Pull-Ups at night, but she never gets them wet. It's been quite nice to have no kids in diapers. Unfortunately, we now see a lot of this:

(Those shorts are size 12 months, btw)

There was one week at the beginning where she had several accidents, but that (luckily) didn't last long. The next week, however, just when I thought we were done cleaning up pee, we experienced another accident at our house. Tyler and I had just turned off the light to go to bed when Tyler heard a noise. He waited a minute and then got up to see what was going on. He went in the family room and turned on the light, only to discover a bare-bottomed Ada sitting on the couch in a puddle of pee. She continued sitting there, wide-eyed, until we moved her and got her cleaned up (thank goodness for microfiber). It was obvious that she was oblivious to the whole thing. She must have thought she was sitting on the toilet the whole time! The next morning when I told her what happened, she denied everything. I probably would have been mad at having to clean up another accident if it just wasn't so darn funny!

Weekly Quote 6/20/11

"How'd you like to hang a stocking on a great, big coconut tree?" is from the song 'Christmas Island'. Yes, my girls still listen to Christmas CD's when they fall asleep at night. This particular song is sung by Ariel and is always in my head. Ugh.

New quote up!

Weekly Quote 6/13/11

"This is the best. day. EVER!" This is from Tangled. Every time Ada plays on the swing set, she twists around on the swings and yells this at the top of her lungs. I love it!

Easter trip

We took a trip to the Bryce Canyon area over Easter weekend. I have to note that I originally thought I had plans this weekend, but Tyler wanted to go badly enough that he was going to take the girls by himself! Brave soul! I'm glad I was able to go after all!

We went to Bryce Canyon N.P., Kodachrome Basin State Park, Petrified Forest State Park, Anasazi State Park, and Capitol Reef N.P. It was COLD (and snowed the second day we were at Bryce), but it was lots of fun. The Easter Bunny even paid a visit to the girls while we were on a hike! It was a fun trip and good to get away for a few days. We live in such a beautiful state.

(Stupid Blogger got some of the pictures out of order, but I'm too lazy to fix them. Also, the camera got a smudge on it, so the pictures don't look that great. Oh well.)
