Cookies ... again?!

First things first: For Aaron's birthday gift, Dawson gave Aaron snuggles.
Aaron loved it. Especially since Dawson doesn't snuggle! 

Well, as the title suggest, yes, we made cookies again. Even though Dawson happens to be in the same outfit (Which we have now dubbed the "Cookie Pants") I promise, this was a separate occasion. 
The premise remains the same though: Aaron signed "us" up to bring cookies to a ward function. 
And by "us" I mean me ....

Now, Dawson starts screaming and reaching over the baby gate when I pull out the mixer.
Uh oh.
It's a good thing he's so cute!!

Aaron's Birthday

So today is Aaron's birthday.
It's been a fun day.
In between classes and loads of studying, we managed to do this:

I surprised Aaron at school with an awesome cake. I even secretly invited his friends. We had a good time!
It's a captain america cake!

With an american flag inside! Heck YES!

Then when Aaron came home, I had a little scavenger hunt/clue trail. Each clue led him to another and then another till he ended up finding his present. 
Which was:

Aaron really likes this game. It's a gambling game, but a fun wholesome one where nobody really knows the answers. 

Sadly though ... when we were at the school, Dawson started getting warm and lethargic. 
He has been like that all day with a fever.
But he's gotten some fever reducers, cuddles and snacks so he's been a cooperative boy!

Dawson is starting to cut a few molars. Because of this, he's a wee bit crabby.
I really had to make cookies for a ward party tomorrow.
Dawson got to help me =)

He REALLY liked being in the kitchen with me. He hates it when I go in there without him (which is everytime I enter the kitchen)

Without encouragement, he decided to stir. Baby see baby do!

But THIS was NOT a baby see baby do moment. He's a smart kid. He realized this was sugary deliciousness really fast. 

Going in for seconds.
See that binkie behind him? I know I post his binkie on here a lot, but he seriously doesn't get his binkie unless he is sleeping. There have been a handful of exceptions since this rule was made 6 months ago. 
But anyways, the binkie: I pulled it out of his mouth to give him a little bite of cookie dough. When I pulled it out, I put it on that jar behind him. When he was done eating, he put it back in his mouth. When he went to get another bite, he reached back and put it back on the jar. What a funny kid. Later, he dipped his binkie into the cookie dough and then back into his mouth. What a stinker!

I love you because ....

I love you because,
You give faces like this:

And you watch T.V. like this:

I love you because ...
Your eyes go "off-center" when you're tired. And you let me take a picture of you so that I can show you (Even though you can hardly tell in a picture!)

 And because my boys give me new reasons to love them every day, and because some days I need a reminder on why I love them, 
I made this sign.
I put it in the hallway right outside of our bedroom door.
So I pass by it several times a day, and I try to update it every day as well. 

Aaron and Dawson, I love you because ... you are my boys, you are my family.
