3 year-old wisdom

Grady said to Zetta, "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit."
Z said, "I'm not throwing a fit about the cereal, I'm throwing a fit about the sugar." (She didn't get any on her already sugary cereal and Grady did on his Cheerios.)
Grady replies in his most matter of fact manner, "Well, big girls don't cry!"

Today is Zetta's last day of Preschool. She wore her light blue cherry dress and I curled her hair a little (nothing too fancy, just enough to make her look a little less like an orphan on the street). She looked pretty cute. When it was time to go I said, "You could wear your sandals. That would look cute." To which she replied, "I don't wanna look cute, I wanna look cool." So she put on her tennies. :)

Grady is wearing his Army helmet and carrying around his wooden Cabella's rifle saying, "I'm gonna shoot some animals....right kaw-luh-wayado (translation: Colorado)." :)

Merrick just spit up on the floor and growled at it. :) (That's just what I wanted to do when I saw it!)

Grady's Birthday - Present

Good morning and happy birthday, Grady! He woke up and got to open one present right away. He was very pleased.

Oh, yeah!!! A light-up Spiderman shirt. He saw it in the store and HAD to have it, so I snuck it into the cart without him noticing. (I don't think I'll be able to pull that off much longer.)

And here is the John Deere cake with Papa in it. I cut out a picture of Grady and Papa O in the real tractor and just stuck it on with some icing. He loved it! I'm so glad, because it was A LOT of work and next year I'm going to do what my Mom did and say, "It's your birthday! Are you ready to decorate your cake?!" I think the kids will love that, too. ;)

Checking out his new Deere Gear

"Is this the last picture, Mom?"

"What are you two doing? The present is in here, not the car!" They had to run past it to get to the car. Silly kids.
We got a good deal on a trampoline, so Grady and Zetta got to split this present. They've done great with far no injuries.....from the tramp. A day or so after we put the trampoline up, Grady did fall head first off of the roof of the playhouse that Grandma Kristy and Grandma Mary bought for Zetta 3 years ago, though. It knocked him silly for a while, but overall the injuries were fairly superficial. Whew!!

Grady and Jenna loving the kittens after a fun night and bellies full of cake and ice cream.
