Well this event happened back in April and for some reason I never posted it. Why who know? Great Grandpa Lemmon celebrated his 96th birthday. (Holy cow!) They threw him and open house up in Idaho Falls. My second cousin is a photographer and got some great pics of the family.
Great Grandpa and his Brother Mel
Can you tell who brought their camera! KIRSTEN?!?!
Baylee singing some tunes
This would be the picture that my dad told his brother and sisters to suck in their belly except for Val. Way to put your foot in your mouth DAD!
The kids and their great great grandpa! Not many people can say that!
Brooklyn's last game was on Tuesday night. It was actually last Saturday but wouldn't ya know it we had SNOW!!!! Isn't it MAY??? Tuesday night was great weather and we had a great time and Brooklyn finally figured out how to kick the ball and guess what, this little girl scored a GOAL!!!! We couldn't believe it. She did a little dance afterwards. SO CUTE! She got a trophy that she was most excited of. Before every game she would ask me if she was getting her trophy today. Good job Brooks!!
Brooklyn had her pre-school program on Monday! My little lady is all done with preschool and on to kindergarten! HOLY CRAP! Where does the time go? Her preschool class sang a bunch of songs that they have learned through the year and then each got a certificate for completing preschool.
Some of the things that Brooklyn has learned in preschool is.....
She know how to spell and write her name.
Is great at telling me what rhymes with what.
Has learned how to use scissors! YIKES!
Is so much better at coloring.
Is recognizing different letters (Still working on getting all the letters down before she starts kindergarten.)
Things Brooklyn did and loved about preschool.....
Going to the fire station
Dressing up for Halloween
Going to the Fort Hall Replica
Liked to play
Liked the snacks
Liked to sing the Thank You song.
Loved her friends Nathan, Rastlin Brock and Brogen. Notice they are all boys. Should we be worried.
Thank you so much Mrs. Kathy for all your help and hard work this year!
These kids love being outside. Brooklyn wakes up has breakfast and then is usually coming into my room to ask if she can go outside. It is is usually 8 o'clock by this time. They have just loved these last few days of great weather! I love watching all 3 together playing and loving life! Our next place has to have a backyard! It is a must!
Someone in my family told Brooklyn we are eating at Cinderella's castle when we go to Disney World in November. The funny thing is Brooklyn has no clue when November is so everyday she tells me she wants to eat at the castle when I ask her what she wants for lunch! It is going to be a long 6 months!
Brooklyn got a new stroller for her dollies but isn't allowed to have until she goes poop in the potty (refer to old blog). She refuses to go number 2 in the potty but really really want her stroller. Anyways she comes to me one night and saysBrooklyn: "My dolly so heavy."Me: "I sorry."Brooklyn: "I think I need my stroller to put heavy dolly in."She thinks she is so slick! Must get it from her dad!
We are pulling into Walmart yesterday and Brooklyn says, Brooklyn: "I get a snow white toy?" Me: "We'll see." Brooklyn: "Don't say no mama. You be nice to me." Honestly what do you say to that?
Brooklyn wakes up a Grandma Lemmons house this morning and tells grandma, Brooklyn: "I wanna make cookies!" (At 8:30 in the morning I might add.) Grandma: "I've got to go to work right now." Brooklyn: "Grandma, girls don't go to work, boys do." Where she gets her logic I'll never know. Hope grandma is ok!
I picked up Drew yesterday and he tells me that he got his license to shoot birds. (Which I am not a fan of of but that is up to him). Anyways he says he was able to go hunting last week. I said- ME: "How did you do?" DREW: "I can't hit the broad side of a barn" just a serious as can be.
Grandma and Brooklyn were making cookies and grandma happened to be a little tired. In the process of making cookies Brooklyn spilled a glass of juice that was on the counter. Grandma apparently said a little too loud "GET DOWN!" Brooklyn ran off crying, a few minutes later she returned and said to Grandma "Grandma, you scared me to crap!"
Brooklyn: Mom, you know what? Me: What? Brooklyn: (In her most serious voice) Trix are for kids! And that silly rabbit keeps trying to get them! He is such a silly rabbit!
04/10 As I was putting the girls down for a nap I told Baylee that if she got out of bed I was going to spank her butt (I have to threaten in order for her to stay put!) Brooklyn always has to add as soon as I say I am going to spank someones butt "With a spoon." I don't know where she got that from. Anyways Baylee this time decided to say "With a spoo, or a fooook, or a knife. Really harrrd. All I could do was laugh.
5/10 We went into the bathroom this evening and miss Baylee had about 15 of the band-aids removed from the paper, spread out and stuck to the bathroom counter. ARRRGGGG!
Baylee and Jaxsen were going crazy tonight wrestling and running all over the living room! Andrew looked at them as they were crawling all over him and said "Who put a quarter in you?" Baylee responded by saying "ME!"
