Random pictures

There is no rhyme or reason to these pictures today. I just realized that I had quite a few on the camera, and I needed to get them off the camera and onto the computer. So here they are!

Here is Megan looking cute in her camo p.j.'s.Of course once I take a picture of Megan, Lindsey wants me to take one of her too. This is also a "before" picture. Her bangs were getting really long, so I cut them myself this morning.

Here is Lindsey's "after" picture. I have never cut hair before, so I think I did a pretty good job. I promised her a treat if she sat really still, and she did!

Lindsey smiling for the camera!
This one was taken a while back, but she is still cute!
Another of my sweet little Megan.
Here is one of the sunset we had a couple of nights ago. The colors were so beautiful!
We woke up to a little buck deer in our backyard one morning, so I had to get a couple pictures of him.
Little BoBo soaking up the sunshine!

Lindsey's animal sounds

videoTo go along with yesterday's post, I decided to record Lindsey saying her animal sounds. She knows a lot more than what is on the video, but what other two-year-old knows what an elk says. Granted, she had to be prompted in the video, but normally she does not need any help. Ahh, my little hunter!

Her father's daughter

My little Lindsey has become quite the hunter lately. I think that she has been hunting more in her short two years than I have in my 27. She went deer hunting with Jason this weekend, and came home talking about it. She crawled under a fence, laid on the ground, covered her ears, and saw a deer fall down. It seems that she has hunting on the brain lately. I know someone else that always has hunting on the brain, and I think she takes after him!

One night after she was talking about hunting with Daddy, Jason decided to show her a deer hunting movie. So now Lindsey's new favorite thing to do is watch deer or elk hunting movies. Hmmm? I wonder where she gets that from too. When she picks a movie to watch, she immediately goes for the deer hunting ones. I tell her that Mommy does not watch hunting movies, only Daddy watches those, so she has to wait for Daddy to get home.

Bribery works really well with our Lindsey, so last night when I was having a tough time getting her ready for bed, I bribed her with a deer hunting movie! She was very cooperative after that and sat right down to watch her hunting movie. She really is her father's daughter!

Will she ever learn?

Jason has been working hard this week and a lot of it has been out of town work, which means that I am at home with the girls by myself for long periods of time. This can be very tiring as anyone with two little ones knows! So to give me a break on Thursday night, Jason took Lindsey to Gillette to drop off some chemical for work. On the way there, Lindsey saw Jason eating some sunflower seeds and started demanding one. Now if you know our little Lindsey demanding means screaming and crying and while you are driving sometimes it is just easier to give her what she wants than to listen to her scream. About 30 seconds after giving her one sunflower seed, Jason hears, "Daddy, get it out!" Uh, oh, could this really have happened again? I thought she learned her lesson the last time with the dog food! Nope, she didn't learn her lesson and this sunflower seed won't dissolve like the dog food did. Jason took her into the Urgent Care Clinic in Gillette where he, the doctor, and a nurse, attempted to hold this seemly small two-year-old down. The three of them were unsuccessful with getting the sunflower seed out of her nose because they couldn't hold her still. When Jason got home with her that night, the two of us attempted to get the seed out, but we were unsuccessful as well. The only option left for us was to take her to the doctor in the morning where we were told that she might have to be sedated. Jason was pretty worried about her the whole night, so he slept in the guest bed in Lindsey's room. Around 4 a.m. he finally brought her into our bed. A couple of minutes after she layed down with us, I heard her sneeze. We got up on Friday morning and thought that we would try one more time to get the seed out. Jason put on his headlamp and I held her head, but when we looked up her nose there was nothing there! Hooray! She had sneezed it out, and we found the little "booger" in our bed! At least it was a trip to the doctor that we avoided. Please tell me that she will eventually stop putting things up her nose! What is left for her to stick up there?
