3 Year Old's View

Have you ever just given your kid a camera?

I found an old camera that I had broke. Found out I had a warranty on it, so sent it off to get fixed. I had already bought myself 2 cameras by now. (Bought one, broke it, bought another one. Yes it's a trend)

Anyways I had the camera fixed and sent back. So I gave it to Jakah so he would leave mine alone. I can break mine without any help from him thank you.

He has been so busy taking pictures of things that interest him. It's funny to see what is so important for him to take pictures of.

I thought I'd share just a few (he has taken over 200!) things that made me laugh when looking at his pictures

This first one he took of himself on my phone  photo PhoneCamera2651_zpsfb277086.jpg  photo JakahsCamera056_zpsadbce0e3.jpg  photo JakahsCamera048_zps22dc0823.jpg  photo JakahsCamera041_zps67bdabd6.jpg  photo JakahsCamera066_zps648df02f.jpg  photo JakahsCamera073_zps38547d3e.jpg  photo JakahsCamera074_zps083d9768.jpg  photo JakahsCamera081_zpsf6c43755.jpg  photo JakahsCamera087_zps9a717cec.jpg  photo JakahsCamera089_zps1c4685f6.jpg  photo JakahsCamera093_zpsfeef1f2d.jpg  photo JakahsCamera190_zps93b5c8e9.jpg  photo JakahsCamera187_zpsd3d2aaca.jpg  photo JakahsCamera186_zps4040e111.jpg  photo JakahsCamera185_zps51b8c990.jpg  photo JakahsCamera177_zpsa24405ef.jpg  photo JakahsCamera169_zps07be9c5b.jpg  photo JakahsCamera165_zpseff5639a.jpg  photo JakahsCamera156_zps21161ed0.jpg  photo JakahsCamera154_zps0b371106.jpg  photo JakahsCamera145_zpsb84fcd9a.jpg  photo JakahsCamera139_zps92df1d1b.jpg  photo JakahsCamera135_zps6dd23644.jpg  photo JakahsCamera130_zps363785fb.jpg  photo JakahsCamera126_zpsc80fe3af.jpg  photo JakahsCamera115_zps187c972f.jpg  photo JakahsCamera105_zpsead9cb10.jpg  photo JakahsCamera100_zpsb2967bab.jpg  photo JakahsCamera026_zps7c6bf7bc.jpg

These totally make me laugh, and there are so many I didn't put up. Mostly pictures of his toys Ha ha!

Here I Am


Anyone miss me?

I've been MIA. Well actually I have written and published a few things, only to delete them later. They weren't really saying what I wanted to say.

I'm in a blogging funk.

Since I am potty training the hardest child ever, I feel like every day is the same. Like I am that movie Ground Hog's Day.
Photo: And while you're add it, we could use one for the middle school boys too. Just saying. Erin

But here I am. Going to try to write my way out of the funk. So just warning you, some posts may be boring and lame and have a lot of rambling about nothing important.

Last week we took a trip to the Great Wolf Lodge. The boys loved it of course. And my husband and I are exhausted. We went with my sister-in-law, niece and nephew and mother-in-law. Grandma insisted on buying all the kids the wand thingy there. Mostly because our niece wanted it and grandma was trying to be fair. But little kids 3 and under don't care about that game. (and the wands are so expensive!)
Photo: You've almost made it through another week!

"Share" if you've been there…

Potty training is going ok. So far we don't have any accidents in public, which I was worried about. Instead we have accidents at home. I don't understand it at all. But he'll get it eventually right? The only way we have gotten him to poop in the toilet is by telling him his poop gets flushed down to the poop truck (it doesn't) and he can wave at it when we see the poop truck driving around. So now he is obsessed with poop trucks. Or even fuel trucks that look like poop trucks with a poop trailer. Oh boys are gross I tell you!

I also realized this morning that my baby is turning 1 in about a month. Say what!? I gotta start planning a 1st birthday party like 3 weeks ago! Jensen has been walking around the house like crazy. It's cute but totally creeps me out when he walks into a room. He walks like a pirate with a peg leg and my husband calls him Captain. So we're having a pirate party.

I better get started on planning!

I'm also trying to switch Jensen from formula to milk. He's never really been into the formula or the bottles anyways. So better to get it out of the way now instead of waiting. Of course it seems like because I want to get rid of it, he wants it.

Jakah likes to try and make his brother laugh by sneezing. Except when he fake sneezes it sounds like he says "Ah Jew"! Totally cracks me up!

Of course anytime I pull out the video camera to record any of the funny walking or sayings the boys stop doing it and just climb on me. Ugh!

I've started a diet to lose the last 10 lbs I never lost from Jakah. I've lost everything I gained with Jensen, now to lose the rest! I'm in a wedding in January and want to look hot. So I haven't been baking much. Because then I just eat it. Now if only I could find the time to exercise! Hopefully with the days getting nicer just taking the boys for a walk will help.

Friday Funnies # 32

Happy Friday!!! Anyone have big plans for the weekend? It's my first weekend not working in a few months. Of course my husband has to work instead. I was thinking about going swim suit shopping (EEEKKK!) but we are going to the Great Wolf Lodge next week and I'd like a new swim suit. Who knows if I'll go though since the boys aren't very good shopping buddies.

Since it's Friday it's time for some laughs. Emily and I have a community Friday Funnies pinterest board. Let me know if you would like to join us in pinning some laughs an I will send you an invitation!

Dutch Apple Pie Bites

Ever feel like having some apple pie, but don't want to make a whole pie? Or maybe you just want a little bite of apple pie?

I swear when I make a pie only half gets eaten before we get tired of it.

I found this recipe on Pinterest, but decided to step it up a little. I am so glad I did. The dutch crumble on it makes it so yummy! And SO super easy!

And perfect for having just a little bit of apple pie instead of the whole thing.
