Charlie has been wearing underwear for a couple weeks (with the exception of nap and nighttime), so I think it is now safe to call him officially potty-trained! I have to admit I was dreading it and wasn't going to be disappointed if he was well after 3 before he was potty trained, but he was surprisingly easy and very motivated by m & m's. He has the occasional accidents, but for a 2 year old boy is doing very well. Way to go Charlie! (Of course, now that I am blogging this, he will have some HUGE accident at church or something.)

Here are some pictures of the goof ball to commemorate:

Camp Off 2009

On Labor Day Seth wanted to do a camp out (or camp-off as Macy calls it). He thought about doing it in the backyard, but we remembered that our church has about 4 acres of land about 2 miles from the house, so we decided to move it out there. We had a fun evening of playing, riding on the lawn mower, gathering firewood, roasted hot dogs and marshmallows, letting the kids run around and just sitting around the fire. Seth was positive the kids wouldn't sleep in the tent, but we all did (except Emma, I put her to sleep in the office area in the pack and play.). Here is a few pictures from our fun evening together. Poor Emma isn't in any of the pictures because she was strapped to me in the Snugli, but I promise she was there:

Today was a great day for Macy

She started dance class! She has seriously been talking about taking dance for a year and half, so she was very excited to finally get to go today! Seth even came to watch her. She got to dance like a butterfly, learn to make her tap shoes go from heal to toe and even got to do the movements to "Lord's Army" (it is a Christian Dance Studio). She can't wait to go next week!I know this is a horrible picture, it was taken through the one-sided observation window:
When I was taking pictures of Macy outside in her leotard, I snapped a couple of Emma. Look at all the teeth she is growing:

And of course we can't forget Charlie in his spaghettio-covered shirt and in-need-of-a-haircut hair:
