Carter has been very interested in saying prayers lately and always repeats us as we're saying prayers. So, of course we have him say his good night prayers every night and try to keep them simple with "Thank you for Mommy and Daddy" etc. While we were going through the Thank you's, he said one of his own. Thank you for Spiderman! I kind of chuckled and then it was over from there. We were trying to get him to say "In the name of Jesus Christ" and he kept adding in "Spiderman" instead of "Jesus Christ." Hmmm... we'll have to work on that one. He was laughing hysterically at himself every time he would say it, though. He's getting into what I call the "clown stage" of boyhood where they make crazy faces and say silly things to make people laugh. It's really cute...most of the time!

1. As a comment on my blog, leave one memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. It's actually pretty funny to see the responses.
he had to wait for since that seems to help the patience sometimes. I said, "After Nicole blows out the candles, we can eat the pie." Well, he decided to go blow them out himself so he could eat it...too bad they weren't lit yet, and he's not Nicole =) Ha ha
Finally I'm getting our 4th of July pictures up! We had an awesome day going over to Shane and Andrea's for a BBQ and fireworks! We had awesome food and I made my first chocolate covered (well, drizzled) strawberries for a Red, White and Blue dish! Poor Makenze didn't care for the fireworks too much and ended up going to bed shortly after we started. Carter loved those little Pop-its you can step on to pop! He also had a great time when his Grandma Gill helped him hold sparklers. And of course the day wouldn't be complete without a good ol' water balloon fight. Andrea's brother, Daniel, popped one right over Andrea and my head while we were taking a picture! It was pretty much on after that =) I got hit by one of the fireworks too that flies into the air! It hurt and I scared the ba-jeebies out of poor Carter who was sitting on my lap! It was a great time celebrating our great country with family. Thanks to Shane and Andrea for hosting!

So, if anyone has any fun activities or ideas you'd like to share, I'd love to hear them because every day, I'm going to try and do a week's worth until I have the whole year. So, bring on the ideas! Thanks, guys!

The next birthday was that following Tuesday, Shane's 25th birthday! He's a quarter of a century old! So, Andrea had us all over for cake and ice cream, after which Carter had a good time wrestling and playing together. Check out the awesome video of the "baby wrestling." It's quite hilarious...Okay, that will have to come later after I downsize it since it's too big right now.

On actual Father's Day, we of course went out to Justin's Dad's site with the family. It was very nice that Damian and his kids could be around. But then my camera died and I didn't take any pictures over at my parents which was very fun! So, that was our Father's Day...Justin got new work boots and a case of Dr. Pepper =) Oh, and I made him a cute picture framed that Carter made with pictures of them and Carter's hand and foot prints!
Carter has taken up singing lately and I absolutely love it! He knows the words to a few songs:
1. Elmo's World: "La la la la, la la la la, Elmo's World."
2. Life Is A Highway by Chris Ledoux (Just the chorus)
3. Pocket Full of Sunshine by Natasha Bedingfield. He sings all the parts that say "Whoa" or "No"
4. He sings all the songs on Dora and Diego like the map and backpack song
5. He also sings the "Hot Dog" song at the end of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
And then he makes up his own songs all the time and copies what we're singing. It is so cute that he's singing now. This video was taken because the night before he had asked for an apple ("Bapple") right before bed and we told him he could have one in the morning. well, first thing he asked for an apple, and I told him he could have one after his diaper change. So all this his diaper change he was singing, "I want an apple."
