More Scrapbook Pages!

I woke up extra early this morning to post the rest of the pictures from the scrapbook I have been working on (and to finish the laundry).
We took some pictures of Molly's first time in the grass before it got really cold this past "winter." We live in Texas, so I don't know if you would really call it a winter. But anyway it was the perfect time to take pictures of her. She didn't know how to crawl yet, but she was trying to.
Throughout most of this scrapbook I either used the Petals and Paisley DS paper or the Dots and Dashes paper from SU!. They were perfect for kids. Spring-y and great for kids. You can't really tell how great my pages are because the digital camera we have is ancient. My husband has had it since he graduated high school, I think. I know I have to go get a new one. I have been a bit lazy and didn't really want to think about or look at them.
This book is mainly of Molly and Caleb (with a few of my husband and myself) and some of them were of when Molly was just a baby. She liked to pull hair and that is why you see Caleb with a slight grimace on his face (he is a bit of a whiner!).
These are of them playing in the bath tub together. As you can tell, Caleb didn't want to share his toys with her. I blurred out his private areas because some of you that are reading have young ones that love to peak over your shoulder.
I used the hostess simply scrappin' paper pack when I did this layout. Caleb and Molly act more like friends right now then brother and sister. Caleb loves to let Molly ride on his back. He tells me, "Momma, say Wee-Haw..." It is very cute, but after a dozen times of saying it, I get a little bored with saying it.
These were just a few miscellaneous pictures of Molly that I liked and I thought they would be cute to use on a page by their self. Yes, she is in the dryer in one of them. I put her in there while I was putting dirty laundry in the washing machine. She liked it in there actually. I also have her first "box" experience on this page too! It was my first big order that I had placed with SU! and when it got there I had taken everything out and my husband decided to put her in it and let her play with the paper.
Molly is definitely a daddy's girl for sure. The top picture is of when it snowed (I know snow, in weird that was!) and we had went outside to play. The bottom one is of Mike giving Molly her pacifier with his mouth. She always laughs and giggles when he does it!
Caleb calls Molly, "Mo" and so that is the reason that the title says Mo instead of Molly. He liked to drag her down the hallway by her foot and take her to his room so she will play with him. They also like to play in the laundry basket. In this picture he was actually dragging her around the kitchen in it.
Molly's favorite past time is being nude! She hates being clothed. We are trying to potty train Caleb and he didn't want to sit on the potty (or stand for that matter) so we tried to guilt him into doing it by putting Molly on the potty. Of course it didn't work, but at least we go a good picture out of it.
We played outside one day and afterwards we came inside and ate Popsicles. Neither one of my kids will eat it off the stick so I cut them up and put them in a bowl. It was Molly's first Popsicle and she at the whole thing. Believe it or not, she didn't make a huge mess either!
Mike took the pictures above. He said that they were playing in his room and all he heard was hysterical laughing. So he went to see what they were doing and they were playing with two monkey rattles. I don't know what could be so funny about monkey rattles, but whatever it was it was pretty funny to them.
We were playing with Molly on the sofa when we noticed that all of her hair was standing up on end. It was so funny and she got a good laugh out of it as well.
Molly loves to play with Mike's BDU hat. I decided that we needed some pictures of her playing with one. I was going to title it "Military Mo", but put Molly instead. It wasn't long enough to put it all on there so I went with Molly.
Have you ever seen those flavored puffs in the shape of a star that they make for toddlers? I think Gerber makes them. Well my kids love them. I got pictures of them feeding them to each other.
Molly couldn't walk yet so I put her in her walker and dumped stars on her tray. When Caleb would run out, he would steal them out of her tray.
These are just some random pictures of her when we were playing outside that same day. I think they are so adorable. She is such a cutie pie.
Caleb was looking at the neighbors around the corner and was "hiding" so they couldn't see him.
I got him to "pose" for me so I could get some good pictures of him to send to his grandparents. I only got a few good ones out of him, but they are very handsome pictures. He is growing up so fast. He will be going to his grandma's house at the first of June to go to preschool for the summer. I am going to miss him so much.
The very bottom left picture, he is giving me his "Mean" face (as he calls it). I thought it was such a cute picture, I couldn't resist putting it on this page. These are all the pages I have finished so far. I just got our Easter pictures developed so I will get started on them sometime this week. I will also be posting pictures of the new storage stuff I got for Mother's day. I love them! Hope every one had a great weekend and happy stamping!
