And the word is.... SNAP!

Not being around a lot of small children (hanging out with the ladies and kids from church at McD's during Story Time doesn't count), I haven't seen Chicken Little. I haven't seen most of the recent cartoons - not that I don't enjoy them, it's that I just haven't had the time or the initiative too. Anyway, Arissa and Michael have been saying ... "Oh Snap" lately - and I couldn't figure out where it was coming from. And then I saw Chicken Little (SO cute, loved it), and now I totally get it. Snap! :)

I'm having a good time with the kids. Yes, they're loud - but not unusually so. They're GREAT kids, and are SO cute (and of course, I'm not a bit biased... LOL). Arissa requested that I sleep with her, and she got up with me this morning at 7am (she normally sleeps in until 11am or so) and we spent some time putting puzzles together. Then Michael woke up and we spent some time playing with cars and trains. Ainsley is PURE delight. She's so mild mannered! She laughs and babbles - and only cries when she's hungry. And man oh man.. can the girl chow down! She's 8 months old, and downs some serious cereal, yogurt, and bottles. She eats the same food we have at dinner too, but she supplements it with other food also. She's so tiny, it's hard to imagine that she eats so much - she should be huge - but she's TINY!

It was a good day! We took the kids to Burger King and they spent hours playing in the play space/playground. It was nice for Bekki and I to just sit, chat, and hang out. Afterwards, we went to Wal-Mart (yes, Steve, another Wal-Mart) and picked up stuff to make cookies with Easter M&M's. THen we came home for naps. We went to dinner at a mexican place, and then came home for Family Home Evening and to make the cookies. Lots of fun - and lots of good loud times with the kids.

A really cute conversation I had with Arissa today:

Heather?
Yes, Rissa...
I really like you.
Thanks Riss! I really like you too!
You know what?
I love you!
Awww... I love you too, Rissa Roo!
Why do you call me Rissa Roo?
Because you're my Rissa Roo.
No, I'm Scooby Doo Arissa.
Okay, you can be my Scooby Rissa Roo.
But, I still love you, Heather.
:)

We'll definitely have kids, but not tommorrow. I don't know if I could handle having 3 out of no where. Like my mother said, "Heather, they don't all show up at once with varying ages." She's right... it would be hard for me to handle a 4 year old, a 2 year old, and an 8 month old... out of no where!

Have a great day!
