Scotland visitor!

Yesterday we had a nice surprise! A lady that Jeremy knew from his mission, in Scotland came and stayed with us for a night. She has tickets to go to conference, so today we took her to Salt Lake to another family she's been staying with. It was fun to hear stories I'd never heard.
So are you sure it's not terrible 18 months? Because Reese has suddenly gotten so much harder. While she is still a very good girl, compared to how she usually is, she is becoming a challenge. She was all over the place, and of course, right before we picked Barbara up she ripped her hair out.
The deer were in our yard this morning but were gone by the time we had out the cameras.
We met up with another Missionary for lunch, he was so nice. And I hadn't noticed until I took the picture, but he is also very tall.
I decided to let Reese drive a little, I mean she is getting pretty old. Well even though you can see there are no keys in the ignition, she didn't care. She kept saying beep beep! Altogether it was a nice day, I'm sure Jeremy wishes Barbara could have stayed longer, but we were really glad to have her stay. Also it's a good excuse to make me get my house good and clean, so that's always a bonus, because now my house looks, and smells great! videoCassi this little video is for you. It's a Leap Frog. Reese has really liked it. And my nephew Ryan has one as well. I definitely think it helped them learn how to walk and stand. Also it teaches colors, shapes, numbers, open/close, up/down,ABC's, and lots of other songs. The one that you are looking at is probably very good as well, but I just thought I'd let you know what we thought of this one.

sounds like a lot of fun.
when cambree was going through the stage that reese is my mother in law told me to just remind yourself that they are becoming independant and just learning at this age. it's still a hard stage but if you just keep reminding yourself that she's trying to learn knew things than it's a little bit easier. sorry, so long. i'm obviously not an expert and i'm not perfect at this but i think it's great to remember

Yeah Anna started her terrible two's around 12 months ;) She definitely has her good and bad days, but the main thing I try and do is be consistent. If I say she can't have something, or if she does something wrong it will result in ___, or she can only have one more - then I mean it. Nothing confuses a kid more than when you give in or don't follow through. Do I sound like a mean mom or what? Obviously they will still throw tantrums and such. But she is too cute to get mad - I love her dress! Did someone make it? I might be showing my mom to see if she can whip one up - that fabric is cute. And so is her hair. You amaze me!

That's really neat that Jeremy got to reunite with the missionary days... And Reese is so darn cute!! Where did you buy the leap frog play station? Tatton is getting interested in pulling himself up and he needs some practice with standing.

To anyone who cares, the Leap Frog table was bought at Babies R' us, but I'm pretty sure you can get it at WalMart as well. Also the pillowcase dress I did not make but it would be way easy.
