A day in the life

Some days these boys play so well together and other days they fight so well together . Yesterday was a play so well together day. They were "wild dog friends" all morning . Tate was named "Spike" and Tanner was named "Snake Kill". Tate has the best imagination for playing and make believe names. They killed all kinds of wild javelinas and even got into a few pretend dog fights too. I want to remember these days of playing and make believe .

The first picture is them getting ready for their big dog fight . The 2nd one is the fight , 3rd- just Tate as a wild dog and Tanner as his owner, and last pic- on my bed with all their javelina spoils. (all their stuffed animals) Such funny boys!

Friday night dilemma

Chris was gone for nearly an entire week at scout camp last week. It was the longest week ever! It was fine, just long. It was weird not talking to him at all from Sunday night until Saturday late afternoon. I was faced with the dilemma of what to do on Friday night and luckily I found something so I didn't have to sit at home . I hate sitting at home on a Friday night! Apparently the town of Gilbert does movies in the park on the 2nd Friday of the month with free popcorn, too. Good 'ol Gilbert. The movie was The Little Mermaid and the night was a success.
I guess this is the new little babe's blog debut as well. Introducing Ivie Lynn Smith born 2/20/2012. She is such a doll and quite arguably the best baby ever. More on her later. She has a fun birth story. Plus she was over 8lb, which is nearly 2lb bigger than my boys. And she was a week late , bless her heart. Actually, now that I think about it, that extra week of gestation might have been 50x longer than this past week ...
