Cole never says yes, only no.  So Brad and I have been asking him questions and then pushing his head down to make him say yes.  After you watch the video you may realize this wasn't our best parenting moment!  Look how he says yes now!

Picture Day

Today was picture day at school. Look how cute our girls looked!

Yesterday at recess Zoe fell down and skinned her elbow and side pretty good! Luckily it wasn't on her face!

Zoe's Idea of Fun

Zoe spent one afternoon cleaning out the 2 junk drawers in our kitchen, not because we asked her to, but because she wanted to. I really wish I had a "before" picture so you could truly appreciate what she accomplished.
I think she truly has a gift...and it definitely didn't come from her mom!

Pow Wow

Meme and Papa Eldon came down this evening and treated us to dinner at Barney's. After dinner we went down to the Pow Wow. It was really neat! We saw beautiful Indian costumes and even danced to Indian drums and singing.
Meme bought Zoe and Cole little gifts from some of the vendors. We had a fun night!

Cole's Favorite Person

No, it's not me. It's Papa!I would like to say it's because Papa gives him MnMs and other great things, but I do that too! He's obsessed with Papa and if I try to go around during Papa time he just yells at me. He's even starting shouting the word "GO" and pointing his finger for me to leave!
Like how he pulls his hat way down? What a goofball!

He had it pulled down so far at Blake's football game that the lining was hanging out.

I don't know if you can see Nana in this picture, but this is pretty much how she looks at him all the time. No wonder he's rotten!

He's got plenty of people to spoil him. Secretly...I love it!

Cole loves wearing hats. He pulls them way down and looks hilarious. I was asking Zoe if she was understanding everything Ms. Anderson was saying in class. She said, "yeah, except when she talks to other teachers and then I think she speaks cursive, and I do not understand cursive!"
When talking about financial things I think Brad speaks cursive!

Ryan and Cassie's Wedding

We had Ryan and Cassie's wedding Saturday night. It was so fun. We were able to see the "northern Hodges" too!

Everyone danced and had a good time at the wedding.

Anytime we asked Cole if he wanted to see his friend Brewer, Cole would pull his own hair and say "ouch". He did well though and didn't pull his hair once!

The two papas looked great!
