Okay, now that I have my reality addiction out of the way, I will talk about my next addiction...spending time with my family and taking lots and lots of pictures! Carter has seriously been cracking me up. Can I just start off by saying I have never seen anybody love the vaccuum as much as this little one. Every day, he goes to the closet that holds our vaccuum and says excitedly, "Mama, mama!" as if he's really saying, "Hello! My most favorite part of the day has arrived!" We vaccuum at least once a day over here, and sweep. Carter also will go put socks on his hands and wipe down all our furniture. I swear I did not teach him that trick...he's just my little neat freak. But, he will purposefully try to throw sand from the backyard into the house so we can vaccuum again. He truly loves it. And he has now discovered an even funner way to enjoy this activity! Enjoy the video...I sure enjoyed making it!

Also, this little guy LOVES vegetables! I love that he loves them, but I have a hard time getting him to eat fruit. Weird, huh? He won't eat oranges, grapes...he will eat 1-2 slices of apple, a slice of watermelon, or half a banana, but he will scarf down all his vegetables at dinner and ask for more! He wasn't always this way towards fruit, but oh well...hopefully he'll outgrow it. Here's some super cute pics of him eating one of his faves, corn on the cob. Also, just some plain cute ones of our recent girls night and other fun stuff in our family!

Carter...and the vacuum...that is so great!! Axel is so afraid of ours and has always been. I wonder if Robie scared him with it when he was little or something...??? I may never know why he is so frightened of it. It is funny though to see Carter riding it around the house. He will enjoy that video when he grows up!!

That was so cute with him on the vacuum. Kids are funny how they all have their quirks and are different. My kids RUN from the vacuum because it scares them..too loud or something, but they do love to run on the fresh tracks I make with them, so then it doesn't even looked like I vacuumed a second later.

Girls night! How fun! Carter is such a little boy now, which is so crazy to me. What a funny kid! Looks like you guys are having fun. Oh and p.s. - I was in Canada when you called that one night, but I can't believe you saw Miss Maxi! I still can't believe she's still puttering around. Thanks for the update. ;) We for real need to do lunch when I move back. For REAL!!
