Lessons Parker Has Learned

1. Never underestimate the value of free food! Long after the other kids are enjoying their pinata candy, continue filling your pockets!

2. You can add strange ingredients to meals without ruining the taste! Mommy's favorite special ingredient...canned pumpkin. Parker's...crayons and blocks!

3. Roasted hot dogs taste much better with a little dirt mixed in!

5. Since daddy likes giving horsey rides, Avery must enjoy it too! (Sorry...no picture...quick intervention necessary!)

6. Chasing and wrestling cute girls can be a lot of fun...

...especially when they play hard-to-get!

Parker is so funny! What a great cook! Also, those pics of Ellie and Parker make me laugh! I've been wanting to blog about them too... I think I'll name it "A Concert in the park turns to WWE in the park!" They are so cute together these days! I loooove it. Ellie was also really impressed with Parker's ability to share today. She keeps talking about it!

I would LOVE to taste some of Parker's cooking. I think you have a LADIES MAN's... Braxton also is a BIG ladies man he LOVES to chase the girls around and he LOVES to tickle them also.

Little womanizer - he already knows that women like to be chased. You're in trouble with the blonde hair and blue eyes (I think) not to mention that he loved to cook - he's gonna be a hearthrob! What a cute post!

Okay, so I know this post is about Parker, but Avery's big huge sparkly smile is absolutely contagious...she is such a doll!!!

And as for Parker, he is a big ham himself...what a cutie pie:)

Allie said...

I love Avery's smile! So big. I cant wait till she has a mouth full of teeth.

So that's what the little guy has been up to. It seems every time I talk to you, he's doing something creative with his toys. It's fun to see actual pictures of his fun. Those wrestling pics are so cute. He looks VERY happy...not quite as happy as that cute little Avery baby. OH. MY. GOSH. She is soooo cute. That smile is really something else!!!

I had to laugh at the "free food" comment...that was hilarious! Devon's dad is really big on "free food." His rule of thumb is, if it's free, why stop eating?

That little Parker is growing up so fast. He's such a character and cute little boy.

He is so cute! I love little boys they can turn anything into a toy.

One time Nicky made "Puzzle Stew" in one of my big pots for an old lady in our ward. Your post reminded me because I forgot. I love kid creations.

Erin said...

First he's fixing IPODS and now dinner...I think you've definitely got a child prodegy on your hands!! Love you Parker!

And Avery..wow..what an amazing smile! She is sooooo adorable!

Niki Carpenter said...

The picture of Avery in her bouncy seat is too cute! I love that Parker "cooks" using his own ingredients. Aidan does that too. It's a harmless to keep them busy and out of trouble!

I love capturing pictures when the kids are laughing really hard and don't know that I have a camera. When the kids are happy, everyone is happy I think.
Your kids are so cute. I love Avery's smile. There is nothing more pure of beautiful than a babies smile. You're one lucky mom.

I agree with the free food thing, it makes everything taste better sometimes.

ha ha ha ha that is so funny! i love the playing hard to get part. too cute! and who can eat hotdogs without a little dirt, I think it's a main condiment these days...dirt on the side....(smile)
