Carter in his new glasses.



I realized when I did the christmas story post that I hadn't posted up pictures of Carter in his glasses. He got two pairs and have already broken two pairs. Here are some cute pictures of him with his stylish specs.

Kids say the darndest things!!

The other day we were at Walmart doing a little shopping when Britton screamed and pointed " Barrack Obama" I looked over in the direction that he was pointing and I saw a tall slender black man looking at me like I had a crazy two-year-old. Man is my Britt a smart one.

Look at Carter!


A few months ago I took carter to the eye doctor and they said that his eye sight was very sever. Now he now wears glasses. So the other day we were at the movie store and Carter said " LOOK MOM THAT'S ME!!!" I looked at it and was shocked at the similarities!

Oh ya, his hair is that long too!!

We were driving in the car the other day and out of nowhere Carter said, "I'm John McCain and I approve this message."

Britton Looked over at him a bit bewildered and then, after a short pause, screamed, "Barack Obama!"

2 bowls of cereal.


Me: "Carter, Why do you have two bowl of cereal?"
Carter: "Cuz..........I am hungry"





Yuck. Look at that chocolate drool running down his chin.

Sleeping baby Britton.


So Britton has just found out how he can open the door by himself. So this is what we found when it was time for Chris and I to go to bed..........................Britton decided he would rather sleep in our bed than his.

Stressed about being stressed.

Allie wanted me to blog about something. So here it is.

On Saturday Chris and I were heading to the temple when I started to have the worst pain in my chest. It felt literally like a heart attack. I was fine and knew I wasn't going to die from it so we continued on with our plans because we had great baby sitters and I knew the boys would be disappointed if we came home early. I didn't feel like I could make it through a whole session though, so we did some sealings instead. Despite the pain it was great to be there. On Monday I ended up getting a weird but small rash on one side of my rib cage and on my back. So I started to get worried because my chest was still hurting, not as bad as Saturday though. So I went to the emergency room and found out it is shingles. I guess It is induced by stress. So now on top of being tired and in pain, I'm apparently stressed. Now I'm stressed about being stressed. AHHHHH.

I do have to say some good things come out of pain and sickness. Yesterday. My good friend and neighbor Sherry Rosengren came over about 10:30 and handed me a good magazine and took my kids without being asked. THANKS!

C: Ok. Do you want a boy a girl or a dog.

So good she can do it in her sleep

Stephanie spends a lot of time sewing. She loves it and she's good at it, too--so good she can do it in her sleep. Let me explain. The boys have spilled some food on some of their good shirts recently and Steph had to spend a lot of time scrubbing them to get them clean. She also just got a new bed set for her birthday and is going to cover some pillows to match. Well, she told me that last night, while she slept, she came up with a brilliant way to make bibs for the boys so they won't spill on their nice clothes and also figured out an innovative way to cover all three pillows using only one piece of fabric (actually a curtain panel she got really inexpensively but decided the fabric would look better on a pillow.) Now she can use the other panel to turn into a throw. If she can do all that in her sleep imagine what she can do awake.

Britton!!



OK, so I know I post something weekly about a thing Britton does that just totally throws me off. But here is another one: We had eaten a wonderful Sunday dinner of Salmon, corn, rice and watermelon and I guess Britton didn't get enough. I cought him taking a mouthful of watermelon while I was doing dishes. I know I will look back at this and laugh.

NOT a teddy bear!

First I have to say THANKS to Chris for putting the boys to bed on time--all by yourself and without being asked. Thanks. The other night, though, I went into Britton's room to give him a kiss before I went to bed. It was late--probably about midnight--so had been asleep for a while already, but as I leaned down to give him a kiss I noticed he was cuddeled up to a pair of pliars. Yes, boys will be boys; but do they need to be dangerous?

Carters rocky adventure.





Carter loves his preschool. One of the many reasons why is because on occasions he gets to go rock climbing with his class. HE LOVES IT! He doesn't get too high up--only about two feet at the most. But he has fun.

Another one bites the dust!

Let me start by saying: never underestimate a swinging person's momentum. Britton had to learn the hard way. He accidentally walked in front of someone swinging on the swing set. I saw it right before it happend and can't seem to get the image out of my head. I can still see Britton's little body being slammed into the dirt/woodchips. I ran to get him and when I flipped him over he had a split lip, bloody nose, major scratches and to top it off a huge mouthful of dirt. I hope it heals quickly.

This is one of our neighbors who had an accident going down a hill. I just thought it was funny. They look like they have the same disease.

Carter is a big boy now!




Today was a big day in the life of the Ehat family because Carter learned how to ride a bike without his training wheels. Chris is such a great dad and it was so wonderful to see them working together. It only took about 15 minutes for Carter to learn how to do it. Partly because Chris is such a great teacher and partly because Carter is smart like Chris. Carter had such a big smile on his face and couldn't wait to get in the house so he could call his grandparents what he had done. That just made my day!

Quotes by Carter.

Carter told us today on the way home from church that he is growing faster than Britton. I asked him what he meant by "growing faster"--was it his height? or his weight? (cuz he's actually lost a couple of pounds lately while Britton has gained.) He said, "no, it's my powers."
Stephanie: "You have powers?"
Carter: "Yeah"
Stephanie: "Do I have powers?"
Carter: "Yeah"
Stephanie: "What kind of powers?"
Carter: "Super powers"
Stephanie: "What kind of super powers do I have? What can they make me do?"
Carter: "They turn your hands into weapons."

Another funny thing Carter said today:

Carter has been asking to go outside and play all day. When he asked Chris said, "No, Carter, it is Sunday." And Carter replied by saying, "The Church is OK with little boys playing outside on Sunday."

Spring is finally in the air!



I am so happy that my tulips have finally bloomed! I have been waiting all winter for this! I didn't expect for them to be this large but I am very happy with the turnout. I've been thinking about something lately: I now like flowers, bird feeders and birds. I know, I know--I've turned into an old person!

Carter giving Ethan a little push.



Don't you think it could be done a different way?

Thanks Jos for the pictures.

My baby Britt is two!


Isn't this just the cutest picture of Britton? He sat right down and posed for the camera.

On his Birthday he . . .
got to play a little air hockey with Cohen (they really play!),


got an ugly baseball cake (which he loved!),


talked to both of his grandmas,


and ate cake and ice cream.

I do have to say: I love that kid! I am so glad that he is a part of our little family. He brings so much spice to our life! And without spice life is BORING!

Funny boy!

So today Carter did two funny things.


While playing with play dough he made this and said, "look, dad, I made your butt."

Second. While going thought he alphabet with him I said " Octopus starts with O" and he and said " No mom, O starts with bagel"

This is just a picture of him that day after he buttoned his shirt.

The day after the big day.

The BIG day.

























































































































The wedding day was absolutely wonderful! It was a very special day. Linzi looked absolutely amazing and Jimmy looked drop-dead handsome. Together they are just a great couple and I am so glad that they are now husband and wife. They looked so happy. The reception was just unbelievable! Linzi kept me busy sewing the runners, flower girls' sashes, and cake table cloth; making the wedding cake; doing her hair; and to top it all off my friend, Allison, and I sang her and Jimmy a song at the reception. It was so much fun in the end to see it all put together.

They had the reception at Le Jardin--a greenhouse with cobblestone flooring. It ended up looking so great. The food was so good (Pam Lund Catered). Chris was telling all of his friend to take double the food so he could take half of it. It was also so much fun to get to know all of Jimmy's family. We love them! All in all the day was amazing but the best part was that an eternal family has now started. I love Linzi an Jimmy and was so happy to be a part of their special day.
