Emma loves to pick flowers. We have so many kinds all around the outside of our house (and in the neighborhood) that I feel like I haven't even completely discovered because she often picks them before they bloom. Yesterday we had a gorgeous rose starting to bud. She went to pick it and I told her, "Heavenly Father put flowers here so they can grow and be beautiful." She thought for a second and said, "I think Heavenly Father made flowers so I can pick them and they can be beautiful for me." And she plucked it right off. Smartie pants. She's probably right, darn it.

Here's a picture of my little Tyler, who just figured out that drinking from the spout is super fun... Funny enough, he taught Emma how to do this.

Emma has always been a sweetheart, and today proves it further. This morning after I did her hair we were looking into the mirror. She said "I look like my mommy!" She totally doesn't look like me at all, but 1) What a cute thing to come out of a 3-year-old's mouth, and 2) I'm glad someone finally thinks she looks like me, even if Emma is that someone! She usually tells me she looks like her daddy becuase of her brown eyes. She's just as sweet as a cupcake. As I write this she's wearing a fire chief hat (therefore messing up her newly styled hair) and asking to go visit the fire station. I guess we're off!

Tyler had an excellent birthday yesterday. He got a cool racetrack for his cars, a Mack truck that holds Lightning McQueen inside, a Cars blanket (he loves it!), and a few other odds and ends. Here are some pictures.
I'm not offended because I don't LOVE cake either. Maybe this cute redheaded creature is mine after all...
On another note, I just got my first bee sting ever (stepped on it)! I knew it was bound to happen and am more irritated that I broke my 25-year record than the fact that it hurt horribly for about 5 minutes. Oh well, at least everyone else is happy and healthy, and the weather is gorgeous. In fact, Spencer just said, "I'm so much more tired when I'm home than at work!" Music to my ears!!! It brings me a certain amount of satisfaction to know that my job is "harder" than his. However, I also get to have a lot more fun!
