So, first of all I wanted to mention Robert's new favorite phrase; "Easy as cheese." He says this all the time! If I ask him to do some homework that he likes or a task he likes to do around the house (i.e. feed the plants, turn on Christmas lights), he will get a big smile on his face and say, "No problem, it's easy as cheese."
I asked him about this cheese phrase, I said, "Isn't the phrase normally 'easy as pie.'" He responded, "Yes, but I don't like pie, but I really like cheese. So, I say easy as cheese."
Isabelle's favorite word on the other hand is "Bubba". I just bearly put two and two together the other day that my mom's name for Kip (lil bro coming home from mission in two weeks!) is Bubba! I swear with both of their affinities for belly buttons and Bubba, they are spiritually connected! (Or something). Isabelle uses the word Bubba in a funny way though. If she is mad at you, she will call you "a Bubba". If she didn't like something she will call it, "a Bubba". (i.e. "We can't stay at the park! That's a Bubba!")
Austin just likes to say "Mama" all day long. I can't say that I mind that at all. He comes up to me multiple times every day, grabs my legs and hugs them saying "Mama, Mama," over and over. All of the naughty things he does (like write on our hard wood floor in red marker this week) just melt away when he sweet talks me like that. He does say many other words. I feel like he picks up new words just about every day! We have even had him say a few prayers. I love it when he folds his arms too. He pretty much squishes both of his hands up to his neck and squints his eyes, for prayers.
So, as for the happenings this week. Isabelle made gingerbread houses at preschool and Austin got to help. She did a great job and had lots of fun. Austin loved eating the candy, and putting some on too.
We got some cute curtains up in our bedroom and I am so excited about our new window! (still)
We tried to see the Christmas ships in Portland with very little seeing, oh well. The outing was still fun.
We went to Philomath to celebrate Nan's birthday with her and it snowed while we were here! We are snowed in this weekend!
Also, we are coming up to Utah soon for Christmas, and to see my Bro Kip come home from his mission!
Tomorrow is my Dad's birthday! Happy Birthday Dad!
